This week’s Paper Craft Crew Challenge is a color challenge using the following colors:

I received this stamp set in my July 2017 Bloom Box Kit.

I fell in love with these adorable mermaids the moment the first images came out for this kit. I wanted to make a card that gave the feel of the ocean and the playfulness of the mermaids. I began with a base of FSJ Cool Pool cardstock. Both of the mats are Cool Pool cardstock as well. I took the smaller mat and embossed in white the retired FSJ background stamp Catching Waves. I cut out across the edge of one of the waves. To create the watery effect on both mats. I used my FSJ splashes (Blue Lagoon, Electric Lime, and Cool Pool). I gave each of the mats a good spray from each of the colors and moved the cardstock around to allow the different spalshes to blend together. I blotted excess liquid with a baby wipe. It took a good while for the mats to dry (I must have really saturated them. The next step was to stamp the mermaids and color them. I stamped them with FSJ Black Licorice ink onto FSJ Whip Cream cardstock. I colored them with my FSJ Color Splash watercolor pencils. The sentiment was stamped onto Whip Cream cardstock with the Black Licorice ink as well. I fussy cut the mermaids and the sentiment. Once the mats were dry, I contructed the card. The cut off the bottom of the first mat and with the extra piece I cut reversed scallops to create a wave. I adhered the base mat with FSJ White Liner Tape (this is the best adhesive for cardstock that has been wet and dried with the edges pulling up. I placed the liner tape on every edge so the panel would bend. The extra piece of cut cardstock was adhered next. The embossed mat was adhered with White Liner Tape around the edges. By only adhering to the outside edges I created a pocket for my diving mermaid. Before I adhered the sentiment and mermaids I used FSJ Sparkle Silk to sprinkle a little glitz and glamour to the card. The mermaids and the sentiment were popped out using FSJ medium Foam Squares. Before placing the sentiment onto the card, I looped some FSJ Twine onto the base mat where the sentiment would be placed.

I really love this card, and I hope you do to.

I just love the Bunny set from Fun Stampers Journey called Spring Fling. I thought it was the perfect set to create an easel card along with the Paper Craft Crew Sketch #234.

One of our Fun Stampers Journey Facebook Challenge for coaches is an easel card; so, I combined it with the Paper Craft Crew Challenge card sketch. The base of the card is FSJ Deep Lilac. The focal point of card is the large, super cute bunny. It is stamped in FSJ Black Licorice onto FSJ Whip Cream cardstock and colored with the Journey Color Burst Pencils. The mat it is adhered to was stamped with the FSJ ATS Ink Splat stamp in FSJ Bubble Gum, Banana Cream, Pool Party, and Pretty Amethyst inks. The top of the card and the Pretty Amethyst mat with the sentiment are accented with a strip of FSJ Eggcellent 6×6 paper pack cardstock. The banners were created out of FSJ Deep Lilac and Cool Pool cardstocks. The flower was punched out of FSJ Cool Pool and the Summer Pretties punch and accented with a diamond rhinestone. The sentiment on the FSJ Cool Pool banner was stamped in FSJ Black Licorice ink using the sentiment from FSJ ATS Pocket Pup stamp. The bunny and the sentiment mat are popped out with FSJ Foam Squares (medium). The final embellishment is the bow created from FSJ Lavendar Fusion Satin Ribbon.

I know anyone would love to receive this card.

It is another week with a wonderful card sketch challenge from Freshly Made Sketches #266. Here is their challenge sketch:

I wanted to take advantage of the Christmas season, yet again. I pulled out my Fun Stampers Journey (FSJ) Frosty Fun ATS and coordinating die to use on this challenge. As I was pulling this card together, I tried various colors of cardstock for the background, but every color I chose took away from the Frosty Snowman stamped image. I realized I had the perfect background die I received this past Friday from Fun Stampers Journey. It is the Persian Gardens die. I cut the base and the background die cut out of FSJ Whip Cream cardstock. I adhered the die cut onto the base using FSJ Craft glue which dries in a matte finish.

In place of the heart image, I took a large snowflake from the FSJ Snowflake Elements and applied Journey Glaze to the snowflake and then covered it with Sparkle Dust. I burnished the Sparkle Dust onto the snowflake with my finger. I cut the square piece out of FSJ Cool Pool cardstock with the FSJ Square pierced dies. I adhered both of these accents to the card with the FSJ craft glue. I stamped Frosty Fun onto FSJ Whip Cream with Black Licorice ink and colored him with FSJ Color Burst Pencils. For the circle element, I replaced it with some FSJ Tinsel Trim. I popped Frosty out with Journey Foam Squares (medium). I stamped the Christmas sentiment from FSJ Holiday Script with coordinating die in Cranberry Bliss ink and die cut it out. I adhered it with Journey Foam squares.

This is a cute card to give to a friend or family.
