CardMaker Magazine BLOG HOP: JessicaLynnOriginal.com

TGIF STAMPING FRIENDS!! We've been waiting for today for awhile...WELCOME to the JessicaLynnOriginal.com and CardMaker Magazine Showcase Blog Hop!  If you have arrived here from Jennie Harper's blog, you are in the right place. Remember, if you leave a comment on each stop along the hop, you will be entered to win a $50 gift certificate to JessicaLynnOriginal.com!

[This is my SECOND POST today. Scroll down for my Simply Papercraft Challenge inspiration]

I hope you've been inspired by the projects you've seen so far along the hop. You're almost to the end so let's finish strong! My card today uses one of my FAVORITE new JessicaLynnOriginal.com sets (well, my favorite that is not a Brentwood Owl stamp at least!). It's called "Love is a Big Deal".


What do you think? This card is fairly CAS, which is a surprisingly hard concept for me. I created it using watercolor paper. I inked the stamp with my old Stampin' Up! water-based markers so I could make each letter a different color. Then I spritzed water on the stamp and the paper and let it bleed. Once it was dry I over-stamped it with black and drew in the base line. I really, REALLY like this image, so I wanted it to speak for itself. I used some Lawn Fawn dies to create the layered look at the top with different scraps of coordinating cardstock and then mounted the entire panel on a half sheet of watercolor paper (using foam tape between layers) so that the base of the card matched the image panel in texture and weight.

Your next stop on this amazing project showcase is Gini Williams Cagle. I hope you're having a fantastic time sharing in our blog hop, and remember to comment on each post for your chance to WIN!! This is a huge prize...good luck to you all! I hope to see you again very soon. :) You can "like" JessicaLynnOriginal.com on Facebook here. We'd love to see what you make with our stamps!
