Fun Stampers Journey - May Kit of the Month

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Thursday, May 28, 2015 2 stamps of approval
Hi!  It's Kit-of-the-Month Time! Yay!!

This month's Fun Stampers Journey kit from Kristy's Bloomin' Journey features a beautiful flower stamp set that is just a dream to color!

Here are the 4 cards that I made using the supplies provided in the kit and my favorite adhesive.

For the first card, I used Bronze Silk from Fun Stampers Journey instead of gold, because well... I don't have gold - yet.  :)  I love the simplicity of this card!

This second card, I only partially colored the flowers, because I was looking for a more watercolored effect.  Well, I didn't quite get that effect, but I like how it turned out!  I added a mat of black cardstock from my stash to this one, just to give a bit of a frame around the white focal image.

This one turned out beautifully, I think!  Again, bronze silk instead of gold.  I might have gotten a little too happy with the Confetti Sparkle on the flowers, but I love the way they shimmer in the light!

For the fourth card, I was a little more careful with the Confetti Sparkle!  Again, I just colored bits of the flowers, I thought it might be a bit overpowering if I colored them completely.  For this one, I added a gold shimmer spray that I had in my stash.. I need to get some Gold Silk from Fun Stampers Journey soon, though!

As I was driving home from my daughters softball practice tonight, I had an idea for another card I want to make with this stamp set... now I just need to find the time to do it and hope that the idea in my head translates to the real thing!

Thanks for visiting this month!  If you haven't signed up for your Kit-of-the-Month yet, I encourage you to visit Kristy's Bloomin' Journey and get signed up - you won't regret it!

Have fun stamping, friends!
