A handful of other justjohanna projects.

This first pic is a bit blurry, I'm sorry for that. The card is simple really. I stamped the mug on the patern paper, colored in the inside part *it's hot cocoa in there* and did the phrase. Added a little button and that's about it.
Next we have a cupcake card. YUM. Again I stamped on patern paper (I was feeling that technique the other day when I made all these) and stamped again on regular paper and colored the frosting and strawberry. Then cut out the paper part. This is yummy paper too.
Next is a "non-card" item. I made a chocolate box. This box actually originally housed my Martha Stewart craft knife *which I like by the way*, it had a foam form in it that would hold your knife so I took that out and put chocolates inside instead. I stamped the dot background stamp in brown stazon and then colored with souffle pen.

I love this next card, these are some of my favorite justjohanna stamps. It's a pretty basic design. I stamped on Making Memories patern paper, and colored with colored pencils.
Next I did the stamping on patern paper again. This paper is some yummy Asian themed paper I've had for about a year. I love the paper, but never seem to make Asian themed cards. I thought it would be fun for this though.
Here is a close up. to get a SLIGHT lift on the flower I layered it with some thick cardstock intead of glueing it directly to the card or using a pop dot. See how it's just a bit off the page. I also colored shading right over the patern paper.
For this next card I stamped the image on the back of some vellum. Then colored it with pencils on the back as well. So the front which you can touch is totally smooth. I then cut the vellum to the size of the front of my card and attached it with my ATG. Turns you you can barely see ATG adhesive under vellum, but I wanted it to look totally finished so I put the ribbon on as well, it's covering all the adhesive. If you read here regularly you already know, but this flower is actually the bottom of a birdcage stand. :)

This one might be my very favorite. It's the submarine stamp, done upside down with part cut off to make a blimp. Then an owl is inside there and there are clouds.
In this close up you can see that I put glossy accents all over the blimp to give it some dimension and shine. The blimp is also on pop dots over the clouds.

Now for the best part. I did ALL these cards plus one other I can't show yet in one sitting. And because they are design team cards I did two of most of them. I don't nomally do quite that much stamping at once, I was sick for a while and got behind, this super night of stamping let me catch up. OH and also this was all Tuesday night, right before I went to Disney World! Brian thought I was nuts staying up late making cards. But look how cute they are, totally worth it!

WOW ERIN!!! You do more when your sick than I do all week feeling good. Awesome work. I have the paper you used on the cupcake stamp. I used it on a card that was supposed to have a cupcake on it & I never got any farther. My cupcake looked lame! Never stamp a lame cupcake (or a lame' cupcake for that matter!)

You've been a busy stamper!

Great job on all the cards,though I think my favorite is the submarine one. It makes such a cute blimp.
