Greetings Bouquet ~ A Fun Stampers Journey Card

Today's card was inspired by sketch #327 for Try Stampin' or Not on Tuesday.  They have great sketches over there if you need a little help to get creative every now and then!  After I looked at the sketch I noticed that I had a couple of "scrap" pieces of pierced watercolor paper sitting on my desk and figured they went with the sketch so I might as well put them to good use!  

I stamped the flowers with FSJ Clear Pigment Ink and embossed it with white.  Next I used a couple of Journey Splashes to do a watercolor wash in the background.  Usually when I do the emboss resist technique I'm sponging ink onto my card stock, but this time I did a watercolor wash.


Make sure you head over to Try Stampin's blog HERE to see what all the other designers created.  We'd love to see what you create with this sketch if you get a chance to play along. :)

Hit the Road for Father's Day ~ A Fun Stampers Journey Card

Happy Father's Day to all of you father's out there.  
I made this card special for my dad today.  Since I don't have a stamp with a sailboat I went with what I had...antiques.  I'm pretty sure my dad's favorite color is green (at least that's what he has on his Valiant sailboat!).  I did look up green gas pumps and trucks like this just to be on the safe side and they do exist! :D


I colored in the truck and gas pump with Color Burst Pencils from Fun Stampers Journey.  I did a little erasing here and there to try and get the shine and glare from the sun.  I also used a little gray to add some shadows in.

(I really didn't use kiwi slice, but I wanted green on here!  I used pencil #22)

Nature Trees ~ A Fun Stampers Journey Card

I created today's card for my nephew's open house last Sunday.  I had been so busy the past week prepping and planning for my parents'  50th Anniversary open house that I kind of forgot to make my nephew's card. :(  Sunday afternoon an hour before his party started I quickly whipped out this card.  To be honest I'm not really sure what I think of it! lol  


I guess I was in the mood to watercolor, but didn't have the time to put into that like I usually do.  This was a quick "whip the colors on and hope it turns out" kind of card.  I started by stamping a few of the same tree images with Hazelnut Blend onto watercolor paper.  I guess I did second generation stamping because I inked the stamp up, stamped it on scrap paper, then stamped the image onto my watercolor paper.  Once that was on I grabbed my large blending brush and used Green Olive, Turbo Teal and Sour Lemon splashes to add leaves and the blob of grass under the trees.  I mixed them up in different ways to get varying shades of greens starting with the lightest color and getting darker each time I added more leaves and grass.  To finish it off I added two strips of Hazelnut Blend card stock at the bottom and also a bit of gold and dark roast silks mixed together.

Turtley Awesome ~ A Fun Stampers Journey Card

How fun is today's card!  I think most of you know my favorite color to use on a card is blue, but did you actually know my favorite color is green?  And today I got to combine them to create this fun card for my nephew's birthday...and it's Turtley Awesome! lol  Just a little fun pun for you. :)  I can't believe I haven't played with this set yet!  Guess I didn't have a reason to until now.


This card was pretty easy to create.  I did do just a bit of fussy cutting, but dies are available for this set if you hate fussy cutting!! :) To create my background I did a watercolor wash using Journey Splashes (Lemon Grass and Turbo Teal).  I also used the same Journey Splashes to color in my turtle and seaweed after I embossed them in white (just a note that I did all of this on watercolor paper).

Easter Blessings ~ A Fun Stampers Journey Card

Yes, today's post is titled Easter Blessing because that's the name of the stamp set that I used.  However I ended up using it as an anniversary card.  I'm really looking forward to an anniversary stamp (hopefully stamps) in the new catalog coming out in July, but for now the Well Wishes from May's Bloom Box is what I'm going to use. :) 

So back to today's card...I created it for my sister and brother-in-law's anniversary.  Yup, it's girly because of the flowers.  Maybe next year I'll make one that's a bit more masculine (if I remember! lol).  Anywhoo I wanted to try my hand at a bit more watercolor.  Turned out kind of funky.  Some people like this look and others don't.  It wasn't exactly what I was looking for, but I'm still learning so it'll do for me. :)

Begin Adventure ~ A Fun Stampers Journey Card

Today I have another masculine card to share with you.  This was also one of my May stamp a stack cards.  


It was as simple as sponging the sun on using couple different yellows (I die-cut out a circle and masked the card stock so only the circle was open to sponge the sun), sponged some more around the sun with more yellow, stamped the airplane and birthday greeting, assembled the card and put on the twill rope (which is a freebie with a $50 purchase!).

Stay Wild ~ A Fun Stampers Journey Card

Last Tuesday I said I was going to post another card from TSOT's challenge that I changed up just a bit.  This time I didn't use any aluminum foil, added sponging so I could have the moon and I also added a bit of twine across the diagonal strip.  This was one of my May stamp a stack cards and the ladies really seemed to like it...and it's actually VERY easy to create! :)


You can check out all the other great cards created with this sketch HERE.

Dahlia Burst ~ A Fun Stampers Journey Card

Today's card is special because I made it for my mom for her birthday. :)  I know I've made a lot of blue cards lately, but it just seems to be the color that works for me...and it's my mom's favorite color. :)


I stamped the image with clear pigment ink on watercolor paper and embossed it with white embossing power.  Then I used Journey Splashes mixed with water to watercolor in the flowers and leaves.  I did a bit of light blue around the whole image too and did some blue and green splats.

Stay Wild ~ A Fun Stampers Journey Card

I created this card a couple of week's ago for my nephew's 18th birthday.  And it was inspired by Try Stampin' or Not on Tuesday's sketch challenge #323.  That means I actually worked ahead for once...AMAZING! lol  



I did change the sketch a little to fit the stamp set that I was using.  I also created a second card with this sketch also and I will post it in a couple of days.  It uses the same stamp set, but I did a little sponging on that card.  Make sure you check out all of the other fun cards the designers created using this sketch HERE.
