Welcome to the very 1st Journey Blog Hop featuring Fun Stampers Journey products & inspiration!
If you arrived from Rachael Shedeed’s blog, you’re right on track. If not, just keep hopping & you will see all the wonderful artwork in store for you today.
The theme for this hop is Valentine or Love creations. I like to make multi-purpose cards that can be used for multiple occasions, so I made a “Love” card. This card can be used for Valentine’s, Anniversary or just to say “Love You”.
I enjoy mixing up colors & this card is anything but the standard “love” colors. The card base is Cool Pool, layered with Pretty Amethyst, stamped in Pretty Amethyst Fusion Ink with the Whimsy Wallpaper background stamp. I then cut the largest oval with the Journey Ovals Dies & used the coordinating piercing die for some interest. I cut the next oval size down in Whip Cream & stamped “Love You” from the Sentimental Prints stamp set in Grape Fusion Ink. Layered these together & popped them on the card with medium Journey Foam Squares.
For the flowery details, I took Lemon Grass & cut out the vine border from the Border Details set. Played with its placement on the card & trimmed & attached. I added in a bit of detail to the leaves with a basic green marker. I stamped the flowers from the Sweet Today stamp set in Grape Fusion ink onto Pretty Amethyst paper. I die cut the flowers with the matching die set & then took my Details Pro Shears & trimmed the flower lines a bit deeper to shape the flowers a bit easier. For the circle flowers I stamped the small circle from the Sweet Today stamp set in Cool Pool fusion ink onto Cool Pool paper. I didn’t want a huge border around the circle flowers so I used the circle from the exclamation point die in the Seriously die set to cut out my circles. The Pretty Amethyst flowers are mounted flush on the card, the Cool Pool flowers are popped using the small Journey Foam Squares. I added medium Sparkle Drops to the flower centers to finish off the card.
I hope you enjoyed visiting my blog today. Please head over to Kathy Dowbenko’s blog to see what she has to share. If you get lost, the blogroll can be found here at Susan Berg’s blog.
Enjoy The Journey!
