Hi Everyone! It is designer April here with another card using a new stamp called Grey Heron At Water's Edge. Around here when Memorial Day comes everyone hits the beach! I just recently went to Charleston, SC to see my son. I love Charleston with its rich history and many islands and beaches. It was great strolling in the surf and feeling the breeze along the way. I made this card thinking about that wonderful time!
I stamped the image on watercolor paper and used my Distress inks to watercolor the image. I used some sparkle embossing powder on the sand and around the card base.
You still have a few days to join our challenge. We would love to have you participate and you might even win a gift certificate to our store.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!
Just been playin with some summery looking stamps lately. Thought I'd share a few with you...
Both made using the same stamp only the top card was colored with Memento Dual Tip Markers and the bottom was colored with Prima Confections Watercolors. I find it fascinating how different an image looks just by using a different coloring medium.

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here again today and I've created 2 cards with some amazing stamps.
Using the Old Time Bicycle Motif stamp, I stamped it 3 times. I matted each panel with white cardstock and lightly inked each. Then I placed all 3 panels on a strip of black and a strip of white cardstock.
I used some scrap papers, placing them on a black card. Placing the stamped panel across the card, I lightly colored the images, then added pearls to the spokes. The sentiment was stamped on a strip of white cardstock and added to the card. 3 gems were added to offset the stamped sentiment.
I lightly sponged blue ink around the panel before matting it with black cardstock.
The panel was added to a blue card. The sentiment was stamped on a strip of white cardstock, lightly sponged with blue ink and matted with black cardstock. This was then added to the card with foam adhesives for dimension.

Today and I'm showcasing one of the new Spring 2017 arrivals...Gray Heron at Waters Edge stamp image. My themed card needed a Louisiana heron, so I chose colors inspired by the John James Audubon print. I colored the image with Gansai Tambi Watercolors and die cut with an oval Spellbinders die. I finished the edges with Vintage Photo distress ink. Visit my blog to see how I reversed the image!

Hi, DT Carolyn here to share another inspiration stamp with you. I'm ready for summer and sand and I think this stamp fits the description.
What do you think? I think I wish it was June and that I was at the beach! This stamp is called Relaxing In The Sand and is now available in the JFFRS store! Don't forget to stop by often for more inspiration from the design team and join in on the monthly challenge!
I stamped one heart on light blue cardstock and the other on some coordinating patterned paper. To add some easy details, I paper-pieced the rose on the top heart and then used a glitter pen on some of the other details.
I then just layered a die cut background over patterned paper. This card is nice and flat for mailing!
Welcome and Happy Monday! Jen here from the Scrap Shack and I have a beautiful and inspiring card for you today! The idea for this card came from a youtube video which happened to have some sponging in it... can't watching videos be so much fun sometimes, I mean you never know what you are going to learn!
For this card I decided to sponge the background so I could give the appearance of clouds simply by sponging on some ink through my stencil. Sponging is such an awesome technique and there are so many different ways to do it.
For this particular card I decided to grab some peacock ink, although you can use any color you would like, and a "stencil" that I made out of thick cardstock using my Cricut machine. If you do not have a die cutting machine you can simply fussy cut out a cloud or perhaps purchase a stencil/die. For the sponge I simply purchased a large sponge and cut it up like a pizza. This conserves the sponge and gives you the ability to ink using multiple colors. Then I laid the stencil down, inked it up, and started cirlcing it onto the paper in the same spots that I wanted the clouds to be in. Note that for the clouds I only inked the tops of the stencil. This created the white cloud with the blue sky around it that you see above.
If you have never sponged before then make sure to give it a try. You can seriously sponge anything from backgrounds, to titles, stencils, and even layouts!! If you are interested you can follow along with me this week and I will show you all the cool things that sponging can achieve through inspiring projects, live videos, and more!
As for that beautiful image it's a stamptangle balloon colored in using alcohol markers!! I know, I know! I LOVE those stamptangles too :) You can view more details on the stamp by clicking here.
Happy Mother's Day from designer April! I hope all you mothers out there have a wonderful and blessed day.
On my card I started by adding patterned paper to the card base. I cut white frames using the Spellbinders Labels 8 dies and ran them through a dotted swiss embossing folder. I stamped the large colorblock butterfly twice with pink ink, fussy cut them and added them to two corners of the card. I stamped the Happy Mother's Day saying onto the cuttlebug scroll label die and pop dotted it in the middle. The scroll was edged with pink ink.
We have a new card challenge this month called A Mother's Love. We would love for you to join in and you might even win a gift certificate to the Just For Fun store!
Hello cardmaking friends! This is design team member, Heidi.
I have been hit with an acute need for many cards that I don't have in my stash. One of those are some sympathy cards. I used stamps from the Flora and Fauna sheet and Sentiment set 3.
I wanted a colored look, but did not want to take time to color... I decided to color a stamp with water based markers, spritz lightly with water and then stamp onto regular cardstock. Some people call this watercolor stamping, or watercolor spritz. I used two green markers and one purple.
I get a watercolor look and I like that you can use either watercolor paper or regular cardstock, whatever you have on-hand. I did frame the flowers with cardstock and added some scoring on the white piece.
The second thing that made this quick is using embossed colored cardstock for the background instead of fussing with inking or something else. The sentiment was stamped in dark green ink since I thought black would be too bold.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Link up your feminine cards for mom in our monthly challenge! There is a prize up for grabs!
I stamped the bathing suits on white cardstock using a masking technique. I colored them with a variety of Copic Markers.
I inked the panel with brown cardstock then place it on a slight angle on yellow cardstock. Then I placed it on a slight angle on a brown card. The sentiment was stamped on white, matted with yellow and then brown. I added it to the card with foam adhesives.
was National Scrapbooking Day.I am not
a scrapbooker, yet, so I spent the day with my friends making cards.I thought I would share two different
versions of my Mother’s Day card.
image, Floral Oval V, is stamped with Abandoned Coral Distress Ink on this
simple card.Spellbinders Oval dies were
used to create a frame to layer on top.This was layered on white cardstock, edged with the same ink. and added to
the white card base.
Happy Mother’s Day sentiment was also stamped with Abandoned Coral ink on a
rectangle, edged with the ink.This was
angled on the side of the image.
I have a hard time keeping things simple, I decided to create a second version
with a few additions.This time the die
cut frame was edged with ink and the top layer was run through a floral
embossing folder.A corner rounder was
used on the sentiment and a sheer ribbon bow and pearl were added.The ribbon for the bow was originally white
but the Abandoned Coral Distress Ink was added to it.This ink is interesting as it gave the actual
ribbon a slight orange look but kept the Coral color along the edges.I felt these few changes added an elegance to
the card while still keeping the simplicity.
would love if you shared your Mother’s Day cards with us by linking them to our
May Card Challenge with the theme of A Mother's Love.
Mother's Day is next weekend...are you ready?! There's still time to make a card to celebrate the moms in your life! I made this one for my wild and crazy mama...
I stamped the Stamptangle Sunflower Montage with Versamark ink and embossed with copper foil embossing powder. I fussy cut the pieces, reassembled and made a flower out of the word art I created in Photoshop Elements. Of course I had to add some Stickles sparkle to the sentiment AND a wobble!

Happy Thursday! Today I am sharing a card with one of my favorite techniques. I love how this project turned out.
For this technique I stamped the image, Friends Are Flowers,onto black cardstock using Stazon ink in White. Instead of using Prismacolor pencils, I just used regular colored pencils but I used the metallic colors. It adds a bit of shimmer. Don't forget to stop by during the week to catch all of the Design Teams inspiration to help you get your crafty on!
