The Everything ABC's Blog Hop ~ Letter J

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop

For this hop we will be featuring the letter 'J'

This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.

Whatever the crafter has choosen as their element will be featured in their post.

If you have come from Wendy's , you are on the right track.

I am featuring Juniper ~ Ink & Card Stock
Just in time for Spring & Summer cards

Set up the stamps & do all the stamping at once by placing the stamps on card stock (cut to size) then place a 4 X3 Acrylic block on them... this way they are all positioned ready to stamp.

I then stamped several for use later... just changed up the sentiment...

I added the stem with a Fine black marker... and our ruler using the grid to keep it straight

Next Stamp the Leaf... I staggered mine along the stem...

Then I experimented with different coloring methods
 ~ ShinHan Markers & Water Color Paint ~

(use water color paper when using water color paint)

This is the card I created for the this Hop... using Juniper Card Stock & a watercolor background

Here is another Card...
 this one is using ShinHan Markers

My second Juniper Card...

I created a Juniper on Juniper background... using a Botanical Backgrounds stamp set
The tag edges have been inked with juniper using a sponge dauber
Stamped with Friendly Pets Stamp Set colored with Shin Han Markers
Some Glimmer trim & Extra Thick Twine to embellish

Thanks for stopping by...

  1. Great cards! I love how you set your stamps to make multiple cards.

    1. Thanks Catherine ~ Sometimes I need to create a few to have on hand or for an invitation... this method works well ~ stamp once... time saver!
