Sandpipers and Palmtrees

Happy Friday Just For Fun Rubber Stamp Fans!!

Ellie here today, sharing a couple JFF creations with you! This is also my last post here as a Designer for JFF, and before I show my cards I want to say a huge THANK YOU to our amazing Design Team leader Roni, and to the owners Debby and Rick. It has been an amazing opportunity creating with their amazing stamp designs, and I will treasure them forever!

I have two cards to share today. 
First up a CAS creation. I simply stamped the music background "Tempo" several times in the middle of the card stock, then stamped the birds over the background I created. Colored them with distress markers, the grass was colored with a gelato. I stamped the music background once behind the sentiment too. Added some ribbon and twine and mounted it onto black card stock, then designer paper. 

JFF Product List:


For my second card I created an ocean scene.
I just used torn paper masks to create the background, then stamped the trees, sea oats, birds and sand. On the card front I simply used (stamped) an ink pad to create a pattern on the paper.

Thank you so much for visiting! Hope you have a fabulous weekend!!

Father and Son


Happy Monday! Today I'm sharing a masculine card created with two of the newest releases from Just For Fun Rubber Stamps. For this card I used acrylic paints, an embossing folder, and a brayer. I wanted to add just a tiny bit of sparkle without being too girly, so I cut some sequins into pieces and attached them to the front.

 
 
 
 Supplies Used:
 
 
Young Buck ~ B3841
cardstock, acrylic paints, gesso, embossing folder, Archival Ink ~ Coffee, Distress Ink, and some sequins.
 
Happy Creating and Happy Father's Day to all the Awesome Dads out there!

A '57 Chevy and a Perfecy Pair

Happy Friday! Ellie here today, it's my turn to share a JFF creation with you! It was a cloudy and humid day yesterday, so I decided to create two cards. Hope you like them :-)

First up is a masculine card, using the '57 Chevy. I colored it with copic  markers and it's been cut out. Background was done using stencils. 

JFF Product List


Next up is this fun card, which I think makes a fabulous anniversary card.


I had some fun with my distress markers here. I colored directly onto the stamps using 3 different markers per pear, then spritzed with water and stamped onto watercolor paper. The smaller pear was adhered with pop-up tape to give it more dimension.

Thank you so much for stopping by here today. 
Hope you have a fantastic weekend!!

Bouquet of Flowers

Hello Friends!

Its Kim B here, Gypsy Angel

  For todays card, I used the brushed rose stamp with pastel chalk inks for a soft look.  The green background was created using tissue paper crumbled and smoothed out then modpodged onto cardstock.  The background flowers are stamped on the white yardstick, the others stamped and fussy cut out and popped out with dots.   The Get Well Soon sentiment seemed like a perfect addition.
