Happy Birthday Card

Hi everyone, it's Anita and today I have a 
card to share using some of my favorite stamps from JFF.

I have used Happy Birthday and Asian Yarrow for my stamps.
My other supplies are Jillibean Soup paper, Bazzill cardstock, Prima flowers
Heidi Swapp chipboard stars, Maya Road ribbon, and some bling from Want2Scrap.
I used WOW embossing powder to heat emboss the Asian Yarrow. 

The front of the card flips up to reveal the 
sentiment inside the card. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Have a great week.

Wildflowers Thoughts



Good Afternoon.  It's Lisa with my newest project for Just for Fun.  I am so excited to be able to share my creation with you. 

I started with the white card base.  I cut a mat of brown, blue, white card stock.  I attached the three mats together.  I attached brown satin ribbon going both directions and then I added the mats to the center of the card front.   I cut piece of white card stock and sponged the card stock with Summer Sky ink.  I then,  stamped the Wildflower Silhouette (F2714) using Rich Cocoa ink.  I cut two mats for the stamped image, one in white and one in brown.  I attached the stamped image to the to the two mats and then attached to the bottom right corner of the card front.  I cut another piece of white card stock and sponged it with Summer Sky ink.  I stamped Sending Warm Wishes sentiment (UMS7020).  I cut a mat to for the sentiment using Scalloped Rectangle die and a die cut machine.   I attached the sentiment to the mat and attached using Pop Dots to top left corner of the card front.

Sending Warm Thoughts


It's hard to believe my time as a Just For Fun design team member is over.  This is my last post.  I had a great time sharing Just For Fun Stamps and am thankful to the owners and Janine for allowing me to be a part of the team. 

I created this last card to send "warm thoughts" to everyone.  I started by creating a 7" x 5" card base and added the background to it using a white piece of card stock.  The background was created using several ink pad colors and an inking tool.  I stamped this fantastic Sunset at the Seashore stamp ink black ink over the background.  Since the background was wider than the stamp, I decided to create a scene by adding more waves using the water stamp and more ground using the sand stamp.  I finished the horizon line by dipping the edge of a ruler in black ink and stamping it on each side of the line in the sunset stamp.  I stamped the sentiment on and then stamped the chair on another piece of card stock and fussy cut around it and attached it. 

Thank you for allowing me to inspire you!  Be sure to stop by my blog, Peg's Crafting Corner, to see what I am doing.  I'd love to know that you've stopped by so be sure to leave a comment saying "hi" and follow my blog to get updates of my latest creations.

Hawaii

Greetings, stampers!  Celine here with a Hawaiian-themed ATC to share with you today.
I stamped the background using Flip Flops 2.
Next, I stamped Hula Girl (lg) onto white paper, colored her in then fussy cut her out.
I stamped the same image again onto brown hand-made paper and cut out only the skirt.
Again, I stamped just the girl's head onto yellow card stock, and cut out just the flower in her hair.
The sentiment Hawaii (part of a sheet of Destinations) was stamped, outlined, then cut out and the edges distressed.
The pieces were assembled and glued into place.

One tip for line-drawn images like this one--I often don't ink the facial features.  I like to draw my own expressions onto mermaids, hula girls, and others.  This time I added eyelashes, removed her nose, then drew a subtle smile.  Selective stamping like this opens up a world of possibilities and makes your stamps even more versatile.

Stamps Used:  Flip Flops 2-E3619
 Hula Girl (lg) - E3655

Coffee anyone?

Good Day! I'm here today with my version of the sketch the DT has been playing with. I used H2955 Coffee Background and embossed it with Tiger Eye embossing powder. I then stamped the coffee mug from UMS7014 Coffee Sheet on design paper and cut it out. Colored the inside with brown copics to resemble coffee.



For some reason now i'm in the mood for coffee! Anyone else?

Inky hugs,
Amber

Vacation Memories


Good Afternoon.  It's Lisa with my newest project for Just for Fun.  I am so excited to be able to share my creation with you. 
My card  is insprired by this card sketch.


I started with the white card base.  I cut a mat of tan card stock and add to the center of the card front.   I cut piece of white card stock and I stamped the Film Frame stamp (F3528) using Tuxedo Black ink.  I then used the Film Frame Template (F3528T) to block the areas between the frames.  First I started by stamping Seagrass Small (A988) in the top frame with Cottage Ivy and LuLu Lavender ink.  For the middle frame I stamped Beach Fence (B336) using Desert Sand.  I then stamped Seagrass (A129) using Olive Grove ink in the bottom frame. I added a little bit of natural twine to the right side of the stamped image and then add to the center of the card front.  I added a glittered sand star.

I love you a Latte

 
 
This card was inspired by this great sketch and the fun Coffee Unmounted Stamp Sheet.  This has got to be my favorite stamp sheet from Just For Fun.  It contains so many images in just the one sheet that it's perfect for any project.  I have been using kraft card stock a lot recently and thought it would make the perfect coffee colored base for these stamps which lead me to keeping everything including the ink in the brown tone to play off color of a real cup of coffee. The row of coffee beans made the perfect line to represent the line in the sketch and the individual been was right at home in the center to be the circle shown in the sketch.

Turtley Thank You

  
Greetings, stampers!  Celine posting a "Thank You" card using the sketch shown above.
For this card I kept the color pallet to summery greens, yellows and light blue.
I stamped the three color blocks, then used a mortise mask to stamp the turtle inside each one.
The sentiment was added in a neutral shade, then a couple of ribbons were added to bring it all together.

Treasures of the Sea...

It's time again for another fun card sketch.
Sketch #6 offers up a fun way to showcase multiple smaller images or all the same image with variations.

 

 
 
Since we're well into summer I thought it would be nice to feature a card with treasures from the sea!  I  love sea shells and even though I'm in a land-locked state it's still nice to dream about where these gems have traveled from.  Shoot...maybe even visiting there myself someday!
 
 
JFF Stamps used: Beach UM Sheet (shells); Crane on Pier
 
Hope you have an inky day!

Happy Father's Day

Janine here with a Father's Day card for you.  This one is quick and easy to make!



I stamped the '57 Chevy onto kraft card stock with Rich Cocoa ink then die cut with an oval die template. I matted it on a scalloped oval die cut from black card stock. I then stamped the Tire Tread from the RB7007 Background Block 2 and the Happy Father's Day sentiment onto the card front then inked the edges with the Rich Cocoa ink. To finish the card, I adhered the focal image with foam tape where the tire treads intersect. 

Enjoy!
Janine
