Fall Friends

Hello stamping friends! I am back. September was a total rush of family stuff, back to school, trips and more. Sadly,  it didn’t leave much room for stamping. I am happy to report that I am getting back to my craft table and begun creating again.

Today I would like to share with you the first card using a background made with my Journey Gel Press. This media product is a HUGE new favorite of mine. You can expect to see a lot of it in the coming months.

Other products used were the Color Burst Pencils and of course our Journey Platinum Machine. I love the different textures that the Gel Press Produced and how easy it was to use.

Thanks so much for stopping by. You can purchase any of these products at my online store . See you next time!

Mixing it Up!

It’s time to mix things up a little here on the blog. And to get us started, I have my first Mixed Media card for your enjoyment. This card was inspired by the challenge over at the Design Junkies website and their weekly Technique Junkies challenge.

The challenge this week was to use a stencil on your card.n I haven’t used stencils in years and this was the perfect time to get back into it!

Fun mixed media card created by Jen Guarino. For more inspiration visit www.jenguarino.com

The first stencil created the watercolored look with Pool Party ink on white card stock. The second stencil used were the Encore Gold dots. A few strips of washi tape, some handmade scallop flowers with Gold Wink of Stella and some gold accents rounded the card off. The sentiment is from  Stampabilities.

As a first project I have to say that I am pretty pleased with how it turned out. I look forward to more experiementing with mixing all different types of media and eventually holding classes for this fun art form soon.

Thanks for stopping by the blog. It’s still a work in progress as I transition from old to new but I would love to hear from  you!
