Just Us Girls 615 color week


This pretty color challenge is what is up this week at Just Us Girls. You can find the details here:

The stamps I used are from Unity. I loved looking for these terrific colors in my stash of design paper scraps. 


Crafty Catz #578 Plaids


I love plaid papers and since using plaid paper was the challenge for the Crafty Catz Challenge #578 this week I made this card. The image is a digital from Power Poppy. I used a Gina Marie oval die t cut around it and I used a Spellbinder die for the other one used. The little sentiment is one of those bargain stamps that Michael's use to sell.

Little Red Wagon challenge #636

I made this card for the Little Red Wagon #636 challenge to use patterned paper. I always love having a good reason to use up papers from my scrap pile.

Trying to meet my January quota for Christmas 2022

Darn I hate when I don't meet the deadline date for a challenge. But I am glad to have a Christmas card added to my stash. It's fun to get an idea for a sketch  to use to motivate myself to stay on a schedule with my Christmas cards so that I have most of them done before December gets here.

CCEE2201 Happy New Year - New

 Hi, it's Lois, as our first hostess for our 2022 challenges here wishing you a Happy New Year.  It's a brand-new year, so use something brand-new or something you've never used before on your card.  It could be a stamp, a die, or even a new technique. 

This is a new die for me. It is from Momenta and creates this beautiful winter scene. I never see snow in the winter where I live. All my 71 years, I have only seen snow here where I live less than 10 times probably. It never lasts long and we all go nuts when we have a light coat of it in our yards.  So, for me these are only paper scenes or ones in my dreams. May your new year bring you new experiences and new adventures. And may our "new" normal include love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

Just Us Girls #614



This card is my first attempt to use Dylusions spray ink on a stencil. The stencil is from /Gina K  which is the flourished one. The other stencil is from Gina Marie and I blended distress oxide ink over the stencil for this. Then I cut this die cut set from Momenta in white and I colored it with copic markers. I mounted it on purple cardstock. 

The challenge this week was Trend for Just Us Girls and the requirement was to use inked or sprayed backgrounds. I combined the two.
