Happy Easter Embossing

Happy Easter! While Easter may not be until mid-April, it’s always good to plan ahead. Our Bloom This Way Trends Mini Catalog has a few goodies to help you plan out your paper crafts. But hurry, this catalog closes March 31st. Check out this beautiful Easter Card with a sparkly tip to get inspired.
Let’s craft. Create your Easter egg background. Add watercolor from the Journey Color Splash watercolor pencils to an acrylic block. Then bring the solid egg image from the Egg Party Stamp Set onto the block to pick up the watercolor. Stamp onto the cardstock. Repeat the steps using alternating watercolors.

Allow the cardstock to dry. Then, dust the cardstock with Colorless Blender PanPastel. This will help to avoid stray flecks of Embossing Powder when added. Grab the egg design images from the Egg Party Stamp Set and stamp a design in Clear Pigment Ink directly over a solid egg.
Now you can simply add the Journey White Embossing Powder to give your eggs that glossy upraised look. Or you can give it an extra wow factor by mixing Journey Sparkle Dust into your Journey White Embossing Powder for a shimmer gloss effect.
Finish your background with a dash of Cranberry Bliss Silk and tie it with the Bubble Checks Satin Ribbon.

Childhood Blog Hop

Welcome to the Amazing Journey Blog Hoppers Hop!
This month’s theme is Childhood . I'm so happy you're hoppin' along!

 If you arrived here from Betsye's Blog then you're on the right track. If not, that's ok too!

Just continue the hop and you'll come full circle! Hey crafters, so I created a few projects for this Blog Hop (yeah!).. Let's get this started.

Rock Candy Cardbase: Whip Cream Card Front Printed Paper from retired paper pack
Guardian Angels stamped in Black licorice, then using banana cream and the ink splat ATS I stamped over the Guardian Angel stamps. Added a strip of whip cream sparkle tape, stamped a sentiment and tied a bow out of Riverstone satin ribbon popped the Guardian Angels out on the font of the card and to finish the card I added journey silk in silver.

This box was left over from a Christmas Special (the Journey Advent Box), 
I used my Journey Squares die and cut out the square in the front, added a cellophane bag (was suppose to be full of candy but my husband ate it.)
Stamped you've got a friend in in me in Black Licorice from the Growing Old Bundle Set then die cut the sentiment. Colored the ball red and the sentiment friend light blue finished the gift bag with a bow of Riverstone Satin Ribbon.

To create the pennants I used a retired printed paper pack cut random strips and sizes of paper then used my scissors to create the cutout. I stamped the elephant on Rock Candy cardstock then used the ink splat stamp and stamped over the image in banana cream to get this fun look, I then layered this piece of Rock candy Cardstock onto whip cream card stock matted to fit.25 around the image.. I stamped ink splat in banana cream across the middle of the card base, wrapped and tied twine around the card then popped the elephant off the front of the card. To finish the card I stamped the sentiment in Black Licorice and added Journey Silk in Silver.

Using the Growing Up Bundle I stamped the sentiment and die cut it out, using markers highlighted the words. I then created this 3x3 card out of Rock Candy card stock retired printed paper and Journey Sparkle tape and then I added Journey Silk.

You can find all the products I used on the cards listed below with a printable supply list and direct link to each product.
