I have been keeping a secret and now I get to let you in on it! Fun Stampers Journey put out a call for a creative team when I attended the annual convention to release the new catalog. I was so excited about this because that is exactly what I wanted to do!
So excited to announce I made the team for the 2018-2019 Catalog year! There were eight of us chosen and you will meet them all very soon.
Being on a design team was not new to me, however, I wanted this one real bad, boy was I nervous. Once the call went out I began playing with some of my new goodies from the convention. Let me show you what I created.
Round #1 Submission
Dimensional cards are among one of my favorites to make. Little works of art for someone to enjoy. I used the Liquid Colors from Fun Stampers Journey along with the Color Burst Colored Pencils to color in the images from The Bright Side Stamp Set.
I created my first layer out of a piece of black shelled paper 4 x 5 1/4 from the RSVP Prints paper packet. The next layer cut 3 3/4 x 5 of Haystack Cardstock. Then take one of the larger Journey Circle dies and the coordinating piercing die to cut out a circle from the top center of haystack Cardstock. Mount this to shell pattern paper using Medium Journey Squares.
Cut a banner for the sentiment by hand, using Clear Pigment Ink stamp sentiment and heat emboss with Black Emboss Powder. Apply to top of haystack layer. Add Whip Cream Thread triple looped off center secure with Small Journey Square. Adhere the Lighthouse and Rocks with Journey squares. Finish off the card design with journey Glaze and Fashion Gold Dots.
For this round, we were required to showcase a tutorial in steps Here is a link to that post.
One original project for Instagram was also required. This was my entry.
Roosters are my favorite! The country feel of this card makes me happy.
