NEW {JoFY Collection} with Clare Messenger

Flowers and More by Clare Messenger



Tonight we have another take on how to use Jo Firth-Young's stamps from Clare. She injects such vibrancy into her projects, and presents plenty of delightful ways with these new stamps by Jo Firth-Young!

Hi everyone, Clare here. I am thrilled  to  share with you some ideas with Jo's gorgeous, brand new stamps that she has designed for PaperArtsy.

As soon as I saw the stamps, with the detailed, swirling doodles, I just knew I had to use them all in a larger project.  It of course, goes without saying that once I started playing with 
them I had ideas a plenty for cards and smaller projects.


I love the way the images lend then themselves to use in multiple layers to give your projects endless depth and dimension. The doodles create plenty of options to use as stand alone images but even with all the fussy cutting, I was fascinated as I watched this piece grow before my very eyes!


My finished project takes me to sunnier climbs and reminds me of a sunny orange grove.  I 
used every stamp from both of the stamp sets for this project, so from one extreme to another, I selected only two stamps for my next project!


I really do adore Jo's doodled leaves! I wanted to let them take centre stage so I decided to stamp them onto a sheet of sunset beach Infusions and layer them into their own dedicated bloom. 


I made this project on a smaller scale as a card but I have every intention to go big and scale up onto a canvas.  You are spoiled for choice from blooms and foliage and I'm sure you will agree these delightful, doodle  stamps are just crying out to be included in your mixed media projects?


Waste not want not! I'm a frugal crafter and in true form I rescued this spare, fizzing little piece of Infusions card. It very much deserved to have a beautiful bloom stamped, to turn it into a simple bookmark/tag.

I have always been a huge fan of Jo's delightful stamps and  I was completely overjoyed to be be working alongside her with this exciting new release!  These gorgeous stamps co-ordinate beautifully together or  work stunningly  on their own.   I can see lots of potential for some of the egg shape blooms, I think they will make fabulous Easter eggs for next  years Easter cards.  I can't wait to get out my journal so they can make a grand appearance in there  too!

Happy Crafting,

Clare x x x

I so adore your framed canvas Claire. The colours are spectacular and really show the different ways Jo's stamps can be used. I love the highlighting on the top of the gelli plate backgrounds? Your card made with that pretty leaf stamp is such a clever idea. Beautiful use of infusions too. Wonderful creativity here.
