Christmas In July/August Color Challenge (with a prize!)

I’m loving my new Journey with Fun Stampers Journey and am so excited I took a leap of faith! Change is always scary but I feel like the creative block I was starting to have has lifted and I’m excited to feel like I’m being stretched again. I am slowly collecting the FSJ colors and mediums and will be getting them in batches according to the season we are approaching so I’m not overwhelmed all at once.   I’m really bummed I missed out on RG Presents this past month but FSJ announced the next one will be December 2, 2017 and I will be up and running so I can host it in my home at that time (can’t wait!). Watch for details.

I’m a little late to the game with a series of Christmas in July projects but I’m still going to issue a color challenge (with a prize – US only).  I love woodsy, earthy Christmas themes and hope to inspire you with this beautiful palette of colors. This CUTE set of tags was made using the Annual Celebrations stamp set.


In order to be entered in the drawing for a prize (FREE ATS STAMP OF YOUR CHOICE – except the Bloom Benefits), create a card or scrapbook page or paper crafting project of your choice using these colors and link me up in the comments! It doesn’t have to be Christmas and doesn’t have to be Fun Stampers Journey products. I can’t wait to see what you come up with!  Challenge will run through August 31 and I will do a random drawing for the winner on September 1.

A few reminders!

Espresso Swirls All Occasion Card

I’m so totally loving the new Fun Stampers Journey 2017-2018 catalog and had to place an order as soon as it went live! This CUTE coffee ATS stamp is a bloom benefit and is FREE with a $75 order! Be on the lookout for more cute projects with this stamp as I am a  coffee nut and already have several gifts in mind for all my girls at DSS who thrive off the stuff too (hello K-cups).

I Adore You Bee Card

I’m excited to bring you my very FIRST card as a design team member for Bloom Art Stamps!  Every Saturday I will be featuring a new card showcasing fabulous stamps from this awesome company. For the month of July I will be working with this super cute set from the Garden Collection called Insects!  I used my Derwent Inktense pencils and waterbrush to create a water colored background and stamped the cute bee with my black stazon.  Cardstock, watercolor paper, ribbon and sentiment stamp are from Stampin Up!
