These Collaged Row Houses are just one of the new fun images from Just For Fun Stamps. Aren't they just the cutest? I love the words that create the background on them. Have you seen all of the new images yet? Be sure to go check them out.
This week's challenge was to use this sketch along with the new stamps so I created this card. I decided to layer the pieces of card stock that are shown on the sketch to make a multiple mat for the image which was stamped onto a marbled backround. I love the colored that just seemed to pop out in spots so I used those to decide on the colors of my entire project. I love how the marbling added extra color to the houses.
Be sure to check out the Just For Fun blog to see all of the other new images that the rest of the design team is using for this challenge and don't forget to check them out for yourself on the Just For Fun website.

The Just For Fun Stamps design team had the challenge this week to create a card using the new images and this great sketch. Have you been over to the website and seen the new images yet? Be sure to go take a look. They are a lot of fun. I chose to use the new Funky Toucans for this project. I think they are so cute and they go perfectly with the soft hues of the background. I sat and looked for quite a while at my card and kept rearranging the elements to it and the sketch and had a tough time deciding how to use them, but then it hit me. It was right in front of me the whole time. I didn't have to change this wonderful sketch; just use it as it pretty much was. I did make the first 2 layers face the opposite way, but that was all I wanted to do with it. I added the "Just Sitting Here" sentiment from the Sentiments 3 set to add a special greeting. I made the picture extra large so that you can see all the fun details of this card.
Be sure to visit the Just For Fun Stamps blog and see more of the new images and a lot more fun. Stop by this Thursday and see my second take on this sketch, too.

Make sure this summer vacation is spilling over with fun for any occasion including announcement that your vacation has finally arrived. Summer is all about fun, isn't it? This week's Just For Fun challenge was to create a vacation themed card. I decided to add some excitement to the vacation theme and use the new volcano stamp. The new stamps are great to get your creativity flowing. Pun intended. Be sure to go check them out. I decided when this picture posted it had to be extra large so that you can see all the fun in the details. I began by using an ink tool to do the sky and ground. I got creative and used the side of my stamp block to add a little horizon line on each side of the volcano. I love using my tools in other ways so this was another good use for my stamp block. I colored the image and wanted to add some more defintion to it so I broke out my Art Glitter and added some orange glittery lava to the sides. I love how it looks like it's flowing down the volcano. This was the perfect finishing touch to the card.
