Hi guys! It's Jen here from The Scrap Shack and today I have a really fun and colorful card and technique for you to check out.
For this card I started by sponging on different ink colors to create a really fun background. I then decided to grab the "Cupids Arrow" stamp and cut it apart so I ended up getting two stamps out of one. I did this because I wanted to clear emboss those beautiful arrows on the background and use the sentiment in a white as the foreground.
This card was super simple to put together and came out awesome. If you are interested in more of my projects or watching the process video you can head on over to my blog. Thanks for checking in today! Happy Crafting!
I colored the image with Copic Markers, then fussy cut it. I created a card from embossed pink cardstock and placed half a die cut black circle on top. Next, I created a bow with the Bowdabra and wrapped it around the card.
I placed the American Beauties image on foam adhesives and added it to my card.
month’s challenge theme is “Wedding”.Just For Fun has many lovely images and sentiments that are perfect for
those wedding cards, along with cards for anniversaries.Today’s card design could be used for either
by simply changing the sentiment.
used some black and cream coordinating cardstock to create the card
background.Cracked Pistachio and Broken China Distress Oxide Ink were used to add a pop of color.I sponged them on the edges of a piece of
cream cardstock to create the layer.I
also sponged them on sheer white ribbon to create the coordinating bow.Then I picked up the spritzed colors from my
craft sheet with a piece of cream cardstock.When this was dry, the Celebrationimage was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink
and cut out with Spellbinder’s Label 5o.I used a small paint brush to add some water to areas inside the glasses
and touched these areas with a paper towel to remove some color.Then I colored over them with a Spectrum Noir
Clear Sparkle Pen.The “happy anniversary” from the Sentiments 1 Unmounted Sheet was stamped above the
would love to see your wedding creations.Link them to the challenge for a chance to win a gift certificate.
I caved and bought some Distress Oxide inks... I saw so many posts using them and I was intrigued! They are so smooth and creamy and make inking a background so easy! I love what happened to the background when I flicked water droplets on it.
That sure was a lot of fussy cuttin' but I love how it turned out! I used Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers to color the images and added some Stickles for sparkle. I heat embossed the harvest moon with silver embossing powder because...you know the song...♫ By the Light of the Silvery Moon♫♪! Oh, I am so ready for a beach VACATION!

Hi! It is designer April here today from Stampwilly Designs. I want to show you a card I made with this beautiful Peony stamp. I love flowers of all types, but it has been hard keeping my flowers outside alive in this summer heat! I have already had to replant two of my pots.
I love playing with my new Distress Oxide inks. I saw a different way to use them the other day and I had to try it on this flower. I stamped the flower on black card stock and heat embossed the flower using white embossing powder. I used the Oxide inks to paint the flower. I really like the look of the "paint." It shows up so well against the black background. Sequins, a bow and butterfly were added for embellishments.
We have a fun Wedding Time challenge going on this month here at Just For Fun. We hope to see your wonderful creations. You might even win a gift certificate to the store. Also check out all the wonderful flower stamps here.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!
Today I am going to share with you a super cute stamp! I happen to love feathers. Big feathers, little feather and even artwork featuring feathers. I just can't get enough of those pretty and colorful things!
This lovely stamp is called Stamptangle Feather 1. I really love the design. You can color up this stamp different and come up with a completely different image each and every time. The best part, there is a series of Stamptangle Feathers in the JFF store! Have a wonderful week!
Design Team member, Heidi, sharing an easy way to stretch your background stamps. I adore the Beach Unmounted Sheet stamp set and have been using it as much as possible lately. Here is the card and simple technique.
Take a sheet of copy paper and fold it so you can tear a random looking hole in it. I usually use a piece of junk mail. You can create a more regular shape using a die, too.
Then just ink up your background stamp (I used the Tattered Screen) and stamp over your home-made mask.
This irregular look is great for a collage look. I am such a fan of background stamps and love using them this way. I used light ink to mimic the look of a fishing net.
The shell was stamped and fussy cut, then I used irridescent chalks to color it. They blend so easily and add to the beachy feel. I stamped more images from the set onto my background and added the lovely new Voice of the Sea sentiment. Some Nuvo pearl drops were applied and then I was done.

weekend many of you will be traveling to visit family for the upcoming 4th
Of July holiday.To get the celebration started
I have four patriotic cards to share with you.
have been playing with several techniques and this first card uses a smoosh
technique with a ziplock bag.I added Fired Brick and Faded Jeans Distress Ink to the bag and spritzed with water.White cardstock was laid over the ink and
then all of this is flipped over so you can manipulate the ink to help with
coverage.When this has dried, you can
repeat the process to add more color.Once the background was completed and dry the Striped Background was
stamped with Versamark Ink and Sparkle Embossing Powder was added and heat set.
the next three cards I did a similar background but the ink was placed directly
on my work mat, spritzed, and the cardstock was dragged through the ink.I was working towards creating a background
for the Joseph’s Coat technique so once the background dried, the Fireworks Burst was stamped several times on the background with Versamark Ink and then
heat embossed with Sparkle Embossing Powder.
Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here again today and I've created beach cards using some amazing stamps.
I used the Relaxing in the Sand stamp. Can't you see yourself sitting in that chair? I colored the image before die cutting it into a circular card. I matted it with a larger blue circle and added it to a black card.
I used the Grey Heron at Water's Edge, stamping it on white cardstock. Using assorted markers, I colored the image before die cutting into a circular card. A larger die was used for the black mat and a larger die for the blue card. Finally, I used this phrase which worked really well with this stamp.
I am sharing a coffee themed window card.It combines layers of cream, kraft, brown, and black with design from dies and
an embossing folder.
Water Ring was stamped with Tea Dye Distress Ink on cream cardstock.This was used in the background of the card
window and also for the sentiment.
sentiment, A Latte, was stamped with Walnut Stain Distress Ink, and layered on
brown cardstock.Small coffee themed
dies were cut from the brown cs and added to the window and card front, along
with some sequins.
is a great card to give to any of your coffee loving friends.
