Sneak Peek: Mystic Romance Collection From Fun Stampers Journey


Page 14 through page 23 of the NEW Fun Stampers Journey Inspiration Book & Catalog 2017 - 2018 showcase a brand new collection called Mystic Romance.   Catalog premieres July 1, 2017.

From the catalog:  "Bring a fashion element to your craft!  Inspired by the latest trends gracing the runway, this gorgeous collection will bring a touch of romance and a touch of intrigue to your paper creations."

At convention these creations were a major hit.  Once you see them too, you will understand why.  These are two cards I made this weekend using some of the stamp sets in the collection:

Made using the Embroidered Rose Stamp Set and the Embroidered Greetings Greetings.   The Embroidered Rose Stamp Set has a matching die set.  All the shading that you see on the rose, leaves, and sentiment is because of the stamp itself.  Each was stamped with a single color.

Did you notice the cute Pumpkin Patch Bows I used on both cards!   Aren't they adorable!  They are AC-0332 and come in package of 30 pieces.   These are in the Journey Holidays Catalog that will premiere August 1, 2017.  The Hello sentiment in the card above is from the Embroidered Greetings Stamp Set.


The background on both cards was created by taking a indented paper plate (you could use a foil pan etc - just don't use anything that later would be used for food) and filling it with water.   Then add a few splatters of SILKS (colors of your choice).   They will temporarily float on the top of the water.   Have your Color Splash Sheets JM-0076 (watercolor paper) ready BEFORE you add in the silks.  Once you have added the silks to the water, quickly dip your Color Splash over the top of the water/silks.   Each sheet you do will have a completely different look.  I was able to get 2 cards from the one application.   The 2nd card was lighter and because I waited a few minutes, the silks had dropped to the bottom of the plate.   I submerged my Color Splash Sheet and ran it across the bottom to pick up the remaining color.   Just keep adding color to your water if you have a number of them to make.   With fresh SILKS color added, it will give you a much brighter/intense background as in the first card above.

Silks I used for water background:
Bubble Gum IP-0092
Turbo Teal IP-0119
Orange Rave IP-0118
Journey Gold IP-0096
Cool Pool IP-0105

Silks that were added in on the second card in addition those listed above:
Sparkle Silk IP-0126

  1. Oh my goodness Mary!!!! These are absolutely stunning! I am in love with the 12x12 paper -i actually thought it was a fabric until you shared the pad! How stunning to look so close to actually being embroidered -unbelievable and so gorgeous! Perfect for creating wedding cards or anniversary or for someone who just loves florals! The new rose stanp is stunning and i can't wait to see your techniques of getting the three colours on one image to add such depth. I am beginning to think all the cool toys can only be found in the U.S. lol.
    Beautiful work!

    1. Laurie-Ann, thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I love this new collection and agree, it is gorgeous. The was done in one color, the leaves in one color, and the sentiment in one color. I die cut out the rose and the leaves and attached to the card base. The depth of color is because of the image on the stamps themselves. I didn't have to do any shading. Mary
