I will be sharing a total of 3 projects and today is my second post.   I distressed my background on Neenah solar white card stock using Spun Sugar, Broken China and Scattered Straw distress inks.  I used my Copic white opaque paint to splatter those white dot details to the front panel.  I also used my gel pens to embellish the card further.  This is a simple card but I love how it turned out.

Live the Life You Dream About-JessicaLynn Original Stamps

We are finally launching this amazing stamp set at www.jessicalynnoriginal.com called “Live The Life You Dream About ~ Spirit Animal”. This is a little bit of a change from Jessica’s artwork in the past, but I am so in-love with this set!

I love the dream catcher image on this set. My daughter and I love dream catchers and I have them all over my house. I even have them in my car (no joke!).   The sentiments that Jess included in this stamp set are all so inspirational.

For the vellum card, I first stamped the image using Versamark ink and heat-embossed it with my white embossing powder. Once it dried and cool to the touch, I turned the vellum upside down and colored the image from the back with my Copic markers. I used R83 and R85 for the dream catcher. Once I was happy with the colors, I proceeded to die-cut my card base and the decorative scallop trims using a light tan card stock. I wanted my dream catcher to be the focus of the card. I die-cut the “Believe” script sentiment using Neenah solar white card stock, and adhered it on the front of my card.  I finished the design by adding a pink vellum bow, and pearls to the dream catcher.

For the second card, I wanted the focus of the card to be all about my spirit animal. I have always believed that my spirit animal is an Owl. What better way to showcase the stamp set and Jessica’s digital stamp of Brentwood Owl by combining them both! I altered the stamp a little bit so I can adhere it to Brentwood. I wanted my card scene to look like an enchanted forest so I used my Birch Tree Window Die from Simon Says Stamp. I think using the glittered paper behind it made it more magical!

Fall Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop

I am super excited to join the Fall Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop. I love this community and I can’t wait to see everyone’s creations.  Thank you, Amy Tsuruta and the rest of the amazing team at Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog. You guys rock!

 

For my card today, I used the digital stamp by http://www.jessicalynnoriginal.com.  This digital stamp is free for download during this Hop.  Isn’t Brentwood adorable?! I didn’t want to create a card with the traditional fall colors, which is why I tried the color combination on the card below.

 

If you are wondering where to get the amazing sequins that I used for my card, I got them from http://www.katscrappiness.com/?aff=21   Kat has over 200+ (unique) sequins and confetti mixes for every occasion.  MY favorites are the Halloween, Fall and Christmas mixes!

 

I am off to Dubai tomorrow for some much-needed R&R.   I hope you all have an amazing weekend!  Happy fall everyone!

Down Under ~ Australia Zoo Stamp Launch

Today we are going to go “down under” to explore the beauty of Australia, through JessicaLynnOriginal’s new stamp set called Down Under-Australia Zoo. The images on this set are just beautiful!  If I were not swamped with design team projects and an upcoming travel in a few days, I would have made more samples for you. However, I was able to make three:

This Koala Bear is just adorable!

I love the sentiment that I used for the card below and paired it with a Brentwood digital stamp and my favorite Magnolia Doohickey Die called “Lovely Umbrella”.

IMG_1689

The last card below is my favorite.  I am currently addicted to layering white on white card stock.  It is very clean and simple.  I also added some vellum leaves and sparkling clear sequins to finish off the design.  What do you all think?
