On these two samples I did use the Brushed Silver Organza Ribbon #AC-0244 $9.95 which is not on the supply list for the original 6 cards.

As you can see on this card I used the Shimmer Silver Color Splash on the Whip Cream piece and it is nice and shimmery!

Fun Stampers Journey Sweet You Part 2!

Sweet You 2. copy
This is take #2 using the Sweet You stamp set and the Whip Cream card stock. Yesterday I showed you the first card I did using the Sweet You stamp set and the Color Splash paper.

I used the same Color Splash pencils on both cards but I wanted to see how they would watercolor using the Whip Cream card stock and the Color Splash paper. I do think the Color Splash paper holds up to its name and takes the water much better but the Whip Cream card stock did pretty well too.

I do like that you get a cleaner stamped image on the Whip Cream card stock but that would be the case with all Watercolor paper it isn’t flat so you won’t get that flat clean stamped image.

Here was yesterday’s card:
Sweet You.copy

Do you see the difference in the texture of the paper?

Both samples are beautiful I guess it’s just a matter of taste.

I used all the same products as yesterday’s card except for the Fancy Label Framelits #DI-0035 $24.95 and the Petals Wall Embossing Folder #EF-0007 $4.95.

Full Bloom CASE Challenge. copy
On Tuesday I showed you another fun technique you can do with the Fun Stampers Journey Cool Pool Color Splash.

In the video I showed you the technique but didn’t make a card. So today’s card was made using the technique sample from the video.

If you missed the video you can view it again below:

I have added an album to my Photo Gallery titled Video Techniques so if you missed a video you can go to the album and find all the different technique videos.

I also did this card for a challenge at Can You Case It CYCI #132

Lately it seems I like to make a trio of cards so here’ today’s trio:

Designer Paper Made with Color Splashes

Rock On. copy
I needed to use Designer Series Paper for the sketch challenge this week with the Paper Craft Crew.

Since I haven’t received any Prints from Fun Stampers Journey yet; I decided to create my own with the Color Splashes.

Yup, I did a video for you on it as well. 🙂 In fact I added an Album in my Photo Gallery (at the top of my blog) titled Video Techniques and you will find all my Color Splash techniques. Click HERE to see the album.

Color Splash DSP copy
The 2 Color Splashes that I have are Cool Pool #IP-0076 $7.95 and Green Olive #IP-0085 $7.95.

I really like them together! I thought they were kind of masculine together.

The stamp set I used is the FREE (with a $150.00 or more order) Rock On #AT-0057 or $7.95.

I chose this stamp because my son Dean is really into the old classics and he does play guitar so I thought this would make a great birthday card for him.

The “Happy Birthday” sentiment is from the Sentimental Prints stamp set SS-0072 $19.95.

So are you ready for the video?

You will need Color Splashes of your choice, Washi Tape or Painters Tape, Whip Cream card stock.

You will get the unlock code for this month’s featured project with a min. $35.00 order.

OR if you purchase the catalogs with me this month I’m sending you the unlock code for the Featured Stamp Set of the Month “Lead Me” Project shown below ($9.95 value). It’s just my way of thanking you for purchasing the catalogs.

Full Bloom 2 copy
I have another fun technique to show you today!

I think it looks a little like the Faux Fossil technique and it has a little texture to; pretty neat!

Here is the video:

So what you are going to need is:
Fun Stampers Journey Color Splash (your color choice)
Fun Fusion Ink Pad (I used Pineapple Smoothie)
Clear Block (size of your choice I used F)
Foam Pad (a mouse pad will work)
Outline stamp set of your choice (I used the Fun Stampers Journey Full Bloom set)

Here’s a close up of the 2 cards I showed in the video:
Full Bloom 1.copy
Full Bloom Double copy
