TCP Tuesday #321 Challenge



TCP Tuesday #321 Challenge

 

The challenge was paper piecing.  I think this fits into the challenge.  I pieced six layers of card stock to create the shadow effect.  I picked up this technique from Jennifer McGuire.  

 

Here is the inside:

 

I love this little guy.  All FSJ products.  I experimented a little here, I just received my Journey watercolor pencils (Yeh!!) the oops fish on the front is on water color paper.  The fish on the inside is on regular card stock.  Both work well, but the watercolor paper blends better.   I also used the ATS stamp Oops #AT-0206 and die (both you can get free for every $50 you spend.)


Happy Stampin!  :-)

 

 

Happy Anniversary to Us!



Woo Hoo 43 years!  That's something awesome to celebrate.  If you are married to your best friend the years go by sooooooo fast!  :-)





Here is the card I made Terry:  Of course FSJ everything and cased from Tori Piening




And....here is to many, many more!  :-)

Waiting on my color splash pencils to arrive.........

Just playing with my watercolor paper, water and zig markers just waiting for my FSJ color splash pencils to arrive.


Trying to get the watercolor technique down while I am waiting for my FSJ color splash pencils to arrive.  I am using three ATS (Artist Trading Stamps) from Fun Stampers Journey.  They are:  Lovely Day, (AT-0188) Just Because (AT-0183) and Lil Monster (AT-0158).  Now all I have to do is create cards with them.......A challenge for another day!  :-)


So this is what I came up with.......



I love it!  What do you think?  Well....Friday I should receive my color splash pencils and I will do some card so we can compare.  So much fun to have so many choices!!  :-)

Just Because and Fun Stampers Journey Color Splash & CYCI#133

OK, so this is a case from Glenda Calkins from The Stamp Camp.  She is awesome by the way.  You should check her out.





Wow, I love it!  So easy, but it has that wow factor.  What do you think?
Basically you put our ink pad (of your choice-I used Lemon Drop and Pool Play) on our stamping block; then you give a squirt of Color Splash on the stamping block.  I used Lemon grass, as this is the only one I have so far.  Stamp this on your paper (good way to use up scraps) - then you stamp your image with Black licorice and fussy cut it.  Ta Da......so fun.

Check out Glenda Calkins of The Stamp Camp UTube video  :-)

WooHoo!!

Fabulous Bird and Can You Case It #132

I love this, so much fun!
  Here is my card for this challenge.






I used so many different mediums - all Fun Stampers Journey!  I used Pan Pastels on the bird, masking and then stamping the background with 'Thanks Much'..AT0213 (which by the way is free with a $50 purchase), Journey Sparkle Cuts.  And what about that Bird?  Isn't he cute?  He is one of FSJ's ATS stamp (Best kept secret in town) called 'Fabulous Bird' .....#At-0217..  Whole pages of ATS for $7.95.

Here are pictures of some of the stamps I used on this card (both ATS or Artist Trading Stamps)






Happy Dance!!   :-)
