Today I am focusing on the versatility of Pan Pastels. We are the first Direct Sales crafting company to offer a crafting collaboration such as this. PanPastels are an artist quality soft pastel that comes in a uniquely designed pan tray. PanPastelsare a dry color application that applies like a fluid paint. Each color pan offers a concentrated pigment color that stays true to color even when exposed to light and are fully erasable. These unique qualities offer countless color palette combinations when mixed together. The Fun Stampers Journey PanPastels are individually packaged in four color family combinations.Each color combination comes ready to use with its own Sofft Tools. We offer 4 color pallets in addition to 3 individual add-ons of gold, silver and the colorless blender.

Simply Amazing Pan Pastel Card Tutorial | Isha Gupta
Here’s step by step how I made it!

Friday, December 30th, 2016
Hello Everyone!
It’s Isha and today I am sharing a card using the “Make Amazing Happen” collection. I love these flowers because they are wonderful to do various techniques with. As you know, the new FSJ catalog has some yummy Pan Pastels and I just simply had to use them!

∴ Apply a little light blue pan pastel to the whip cream mat layer.

∴ Stamp the big flower using watermark ink and apply pan pastel to it, using the small tool.
∴ Stamp the flower onto a post-it paper and fussy cut. We will use this as mask.
∴ Mask the flower and stamp it twice using the watermark ink. Apply pastel.

∴ Stamp the leaves and apply silver pan pastel.
∴ Stamp the smaller flowers and apply yellow and orange pastel.
∴ Flick some black ink onto it. Let dry.

∴ Die-cut the mat layer using the pierced rectangle dies.
∴ Stamp the sentiment onto a strip of vellum. Adhere to the mat layer.
∴ Adhere the mat layer to the card.

When creating with this Stamp set, I couldn't decide initially how I wanted the card to look.
Using Black Licorice Cardstock as the base,  a strip of River Stone, some Vellum, Bubblegum Satin Ribbon and this beautiful images stamped on Whip Cream Cardstock in Black licorice just is so beautiful.

Liquid Color Meetup

Orange Park Crafts & Card Meet Up

My Meetup Group created these cards using liquid color (3-5 drops)
Water spritzed onto the block
and  a Baby wipe to color in the background of their paper.

 First the ladies chose their stamp set they wanted to work with
then created a random stamped background

to fill that lovely white space they used the method described above with the liquid colors

Each person had their own technique to color in and their own take on  my sample.
Love it! Be creative! Get Crafty!

Bloom Box Blog Hop

Welcome to the Bloom Box Blog Hop!  We will be Bringing Paper to Life with the Mermaid Kisses Bloom Box. 

I'm so happy you're hoppin' along! If you have arrived here from Kristina's blog, you're on the right track.  If not, that's ok too! Just continue the hop and you'll come full circle!

This mermaid card started out as an idea, and it didn't end exactly like I imagined I still love how it turned out.

The base of the card is Riverstone
I started with a Fun Stampers Journey Color Splash sheet then the started creating the background with the starfish stamp in black licorice and filled in the remaining background with the bubble stamp also in black licroce.

I then used the Liquid Colors and water to create the background:
Purple Amethyst
Lovely Blue
Limeade Splash 

I tied a bow using Sweet Pear Satin Ribbon and Popped the front of the card off the base.
After stamping the Mermaid on Whipcream Cardstock I used watercolor pencils to color her, I die cut the mermaid and popped her up (When in Doubt, pop it out!)

To complete the look of the card I added journey glaze to some of the background elements as well as the mermaid.

This card was created using the same technique as the first card. However, I did not use ColorSplash sheets just whip cream card stock. I used the liquid colors on the mermaid image instead of stamping it, then I laid my cardstock on the stamp and rubbed over the stamp onto the back of the cardstock to get the image to the paper.

I then die cut the mermaid out using the RG Amaze.

The background was created using the pretty amethyst ink pad and finished with journey glaze on the bubbles of the card.

Here is a Quick Video of the process for the 2 cards.
