I am thrilled to have been given the tremendous opportunity to Guest Design for Fun Stamper's Journey Make Amazing Team. Each month Fun Stamper's Journey features a special stamp set to be featured in their kit of the month . April's 'Hello Sunshine' kit of the month stamp set is absolutely darling!
I knew I wanted to create a layered card, utilizing a few fun techniques, highlighting the adorable raindrops stamp and umbrella girlie! First I knew that I wanted to die cut a circular window on the front of the card base. I stamped with the raindrop stamp, randomly on a piece of white cardstock cut with the same circle die. I "painted" the raindrops with my blue inkpad, by stamping it onto my craft mat, spraying the ink with water and painting with a wet round brush. Once the ink was dry, I covered each raindrop with Journey Glaze, creating a 'wet' dimensional look. I stamped the adorable umbrella girl, painted her with the same technique as the raindrops-then covered her umbrella, raincoat, hat and boots with Journey Glaze. After I fussy cut the girlie, I backed her with foam tape and adhered her slightly offset,in the lower left corner. I repeated the painting technique with the hello sunshine sentiment-(in the open loops of the letters-then covered those areas with Journey Glaze also).
April's Kit of the month stamp set is the perfect tool for spreading cheer, and you know I am all about that! I see myself creating many more cards and projects with 'Hello Sunshine' in the future-but I have to tell you I can hardly wait to see what next month's release will be!!! If you love to play with fantastic stamps, get inky fingers and create, create, create-be sure to visit Fun Stampers Journey to be inspired by Richard Garay's Make it, Live it, Share it philosophy. Thank you to Richard and his fabulous team for the opportunity! I SO SO SO appreciate it!
