Friday Fun Day #38 at Jo's Scrap Shack

Happy Friday afternoon. I hope you've had a marvelous week and now ready for a super weekend..doing what makes you happiest.

Here's the latest for Jo's Scrap Shack Friday Fun Day where our sponsors are StampArt Designs and Stamping Chef. Team A was sponsored by Stamp Art and I chose  Full Bloom for today's card & a sketch provided by Jo's Scrap Shack.


- digi printed on GP cardstock, colored with copics - Wink of Stella for added glimmer and some Viva D├ęcor Pearls in the flower centers. Printed the image 3 times to color base image - then colored the flowers only for other 2 prints & fussy cut.  Used a stylus to shape the flowers & leaves on each piece, then glued each over the main image. Don't think the dimension shows in the photo, but quite nice IRL. Die cut with a S/B classic circle.

- green mat die cut with corresponding size S/B scalloped circle.

- Marianne Createables (LR0168) for the dark lavender doily.

- background: Impression Obsession Cover a Card stamps...first using Wisteria Colorbox Fluid Chalk Ink on Tapestry 2 (CC025). Then used  Warm Green Colorbox on Greenery (CC018) to overstamp first background.

- green border snippet, covered with green glitter ribbon & purple gauze ribbon side-by-side. A piece of old lace from my sewing days covers the join of the two ribbons.

- sentiment stamped in black using a stamp from the new 3 Twenty Crafts Simple Sentiments set. Traced the sentiment using a black Spica pen for some glimmer so it would show up better against the background.

So why not show us what you can do for this challenge! Use the link up tool found at Jo's Scrap Shack for your chance to win top 3 and get entered into our monthly prize drawing. The rules are posted at Jo's blog and linking is very easy. We'd love to have you join in the fun.

Thanks for visiting this afternoon, and many Hugs.

What a gorgeous pot of flowers and that little heart hanging on it is just adorable. Pretty lace from your sewing days. Did you quit sewing when cards came along? I want to needlepoint again but can't find the time now that I'm addicted to cards.

My order arrived in the mail from TE today. Great service!! I can't wait to use it.

This is really pretty Mary. The IO stamped background goes really well with that lovely lilac die cut topper, and the digistamp has been coloured to perfection. Like the strip across the middle with the green glitter and lace. A really lovely card. x

Such a fun, bright card, great color combo. I like that you've popped up the flowers even if we can't see it well in the photo. I think that always adds a little something to cards.
