Flowers and christmas! The bingo balls are spoiling me this week with these sets!


March is a busy month for me on the celebration front - lots of birthdays, anniversaries and not forgetting Mother's Day... so I made made some clean and simple cards for this week's project to hopefully get a head start on all those events (that also carry on into April and May too!)..


I made two 'clean and simple' cards using the parcel from JOFY47 - this is a christmas set but I intentionally didn't add anything christmassy on the parcel so that it could be used throughout the year.  I used the stamp with a really simple paper pieced technique which is shown in the photos below...

Stamp the parcel (JOFY47) onto two different types of paper...

Stamp and emboss flowers from JOFY32...

Cut out the two different sections, marry up and glue together.  I also use a coloured pencil to add shadow to the bow to create dimension.

Here's the finished card...

I made a second one using the hexagon background stamp and the 'don't peek' & tag from JOFY47...

I might not send these cards out - might keep them for inspiration- but they've definitely got me thinking...

If you'd like to join in with JoFY Bingo here are the details - I'm going to continue using 2 stamps sets each week but if you'd like to join in but only have one of the chosen sets then join in using that set! Please come and play!

The numbers are drawn on Monday, along with a project I've made using the corresponding stamp sets, then the plan is to:
  • Use/combine 1 or 2 stamp sets (use only those stamp sets - not all the stamps in each set - that would be too much of an ask but as long as there are one or two stamps from each set then its OK!)
  • 7 days to create 1 project, makers choice:  cards... atc... journal page... dimensional project... tag...
  • Use any paints/media, colours, embellishments, stencils/masks
  • Load up your project to Instagram any time during the week.  Please use Instagram links #jofybingo and @jofyjo in the text (not 'tagging' me please) so I can find it :o)
If you don't have an Instagram account you can add your make in the comments on the Facebook post linked to this blog post (facebook links:  https://www.facebook.com/JoFY.JoFirthYoung/ or https://www.facebook.com/jo.firthyoung )

    I hope you can join in - I look forward to seeing what you create!
