have Fun!

Hi Everyone, Happy Friday!

Janine here with my project.  Today, I'm using the Bicycle image from the Summer 2013 release as my focal image.

I stamped the bicycle with black ink onto white card stock then fussy cut the image. I stamped the grass border several times with green ink onto the die cut oval then adhered the bicycle with foam tape. I then stamped the "have Fun" sentiment then die cut and adhered to the card front. Embellish with pearls in the corners.

StampTangle Miss You Card

Hello there! Nancy Y here today sharing this Miss You card using two of the newly released stamps from Just For Fun Rubber Stamps. I used a flower from the StampTangle Cube, stamped it multiple times, and colored in just a few random areas to create a background. Next, I used a circle punch to create a little nook and stamped the flower again, along with the sentiment. Using a small piece of scrap watercolor paper, I stamped one more flower and fully colored it, cut it out, layered it over the stamped area, and finished it with some very tiny gems.
Supplies Used:
watercolor paper, watercolors, cardstock, tiny gems, circle punch.
Happy Stamping!!!

With Love

Hi Everyone,

Wow, do you believe it's the last Monday in August already? The older I get the faster the time goes by. I have so many stamps to use and just not enough time. 

Today's card uses one of the summer 2013  Just For Fun StampTangle stamps. 

First, let me apologize for the red background; it is NOT part of the card. The last layer of the card is the yellow-gold layer.  I'll do better in the future with my photography. 

I stamped the StampTangle Teardrop Heart using Archival black onto white card. I cut the heart into two pieces and colored using watercolor pencils and a water brush. When dry I rubbed Microglaze over both pieces to seal them and bring out the color. The aqua card was run through a Sizzix embossing folder before adhering to the blue card and then the yellow-gold layer. All corners were chomped. 

The largest piece of the heart (left side) was popped up with pop dots. I stamped "with LOVE" in Archival black onto white card and cut apart and popped up.  I added white 1/8" ribbon and punched a swirl. Tiny pearls were added to the swirl and then "hooked" onto the ribbon.

Tangled Turtle ATC

Happy Monday to you!
Today I've been playing with the new line of StampTangle images.  They're very fun!
I was excited to see turtles in the collection, as I am a big fan 
of sea turtles.
I'd like to share with you an ATC that features
two of the 2013 Summer Images:

This ATC features
E3706:  StampTangle Border 1, and

First I stamped the background image, then used watercolors to paint the sea. 
Next I stamped the turtle onto a separate piece of cardstock, painted with watercolors then cut him out and glued him to the background.
I cut to size (3.5" x 2.5") and added a turquoise border.

I hope you like my turtle-y ATC.

With Thanks

Good Evening!
Janine here with my post. I lost rack of time and thought today was Friday not Saturday.
Today I have a card to share using more of the StampTangle images from our latest release.

I stamped the following images with Momento Tuxedo Black ink onto white card stock then colored them with Copic markers. 
I then fussy cut the flower from the background, then cut the circle image from the center of the flower. Next I arranged the flower and leaves and adhered to the card front with double sided tape then adhered the circle with foam tape to add dimension.

I hope you are enjoying what our design team are creating with the StampTangle images. They are having fun creating with them!

I want to introduce you to "Dream Girl". She's outside on a nice summer day, has picked a few flowers and she is restocking her mind's pantry with summer dreams to keep her soul healthy. There is nothing like being outside on a beautiful summer day to freshen one's outlook on life. 

She is stamped with Archival black ink on watercolor card. The coloring was done using watercolor pencils and a water brush. She is popped up onto the background and the sentiment "dream BIG" was stamped with Archival black ink also.  I hope you like her and she brings a little smile to your face today!

Black and White Simplicity

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 piece of vellum card stock and I stamped the StampTangle Border 1 (E3706) using Jet Black Staz-on ink.   Once the image has dried, I flipped the image over on a Paper Molding mat and using a stylus I went over the blank parts of the stamped image to bring out the white color you see in the finished card.  I cut a mat of black card stock and attached the stamped image using mini white brads.  Then I attached the image to the left side of the card front.  I also added a piece of black gingham ribbon and a bow on the right side of the card.

For Eponine

Greetings, Stampers!
Celine here, with a project inspired by the play, "Les Miserables".
My older kids and I are in love with the characters, plot and music of this remarkable work.
Today's offering comes to you courtesy of my 14 yo daughter, Laurel.  I apologize that I have barely been able to get out of bed these past few days.  I caught strep (from that same daughter, btw!) and it hit me hard.
Rather than leave the blog empty, I asked my dear daughter to fill in for me.  She was happy to comply.
Antibiotics are helping, and I'm hopeful that I'll get back to my own stamping very soon!
