StampFest Make it Take it

This is the card everyone was able to make at the Just For Fun® booth this past weekend in Clearwater, Florida. The show was very buzy. I believe everyone boosted the economy a little. All the vendor seemed to be happy.

This is not a very difficult card to make it only looks that way. Stamp the butterfly C3373 with demin ink on white cardstock, cut out and set aside. Stamp the lg oval fauxpost D2708 on white cardstock, use matching template D2708T and place ontop of stamped oval, stipple color lightly and stamp dandylion E3370 with ginger ink. Remove template and cut around the outer oval edge with decorative scissors. (Faux Post Tutorial is on Just For Fun Blog

The panel was stippled with butterscotch and around the edges with demin ink colors. The solid leaf branch D3360 was stamped with lettuce and the bare twig E3372 with latte. Now you can place the oval dandylion in the center and attach the butterfly with a rolled glue dot. Friendship B3120 was stamped using demin ink. Layer on a folded card.

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day to all my stamping friends. Wishing you a wonderful day of chocolates and roses. Here is my rose to you.
The rose and leaves are colored with Copic Markers. The colors used for the rose are R17, R27 and R 59. For the leaves I used YG11, YG06, YG07 and E15 for the stem of the rose. I really like how the colors just blend together using the Copic markers. I have been doing a lot of practicing since last month, when I took the class to get Certified. Lots of information was given to us, now I need to practice, practice, and more practice. I have found that as you keep using these markers it gets easier.

Stamps: Just For Fun, Rose G2873 and Valentine Frame E2668
Accessories: Copic Markers, Martha Stewart border punch, Spellbinders Ribbon Tag, Tuexedo Black Memento Ink Pad, red ribbon

We welcome you to Just For Fun's® first "Blog Hop". This will be fun so sit back, relax and visit each design teams blog to see what they have done. Some will even have blog candy to give away.
I have a Valentine "grunge heart" card. I stamped three dot heart B1944 and colored using Distress Ink fired brick, cut them out and layered them on top of each other and set aside. On white cardstock stamp valentine frame E2668 using black ink and trimmed with deckle scissors and colored using a stipple brush and cranberry ink . This was layered ontop of red cardstock which was trimmed on the two sides using Martha Stewarts heart border punch. Emboss a piece of white card stock with cuttlebug embossing folder D'vine swirl, tie a red satin ribbon around it and layer on a folded red card. Everything else will then be layered on top of this. To finish the card I punched out some branches using Martha Stewart's punch in red and white and placed them around the layered grunge hearts.
