New {July 2015} PaperArtsy Products: JOFY - Part 2

Hi everyone, Jo Firth-Young here to introduce my newest stamps under the JOFY Designer Collection. Leandra shot a video recently to show you all my new products. 

If you missed it last night, here it is below...

But you might also like to take a look at the video for the products I released at the start of the year. Here is that video: 

I have 2 new stamp sets for you in this July 2015 release:

Last night the focus was set 37, and tonight I have some more 'wingmen' who worked with JOFY38. Of course they all mix and match really well as you will see.

First up tonight we have Sue Carrington.  Sadly poor Sue's blog was stolen earlier this week (horrific!!), she is trying to get it back with the assistance of Google, but in the meantime, she has set up a new one, just for tonight!. This is so frustrating and upsetting for her, the content on her blog was just wonderful. We have our fingers and toes crossed for you that this can be resolved really soon Sue! For now, you can find her blog Stamping Sue Style here.

So onto happier things! Sue's use of colour, stencils and layers is fabulous in these samples!  

Happy Garden! by Sue Carrington using JOFY38
I love the shape of these new flowers and with the two different sizes they're great for building up a garden scene. The block stamp is perfect for repeat stamping as it fits together perfectly ! Put that altogether with the gorgeous limited edition Fresco's, fantastic !

Double tag -  by Sue Carrington using JOFY38

I've stuck with the garden theme for this greyboard tag (I just cut the top two corners off!), the smaller tag is cut from cardboard. The tall thin flower stamp is so versatile as you can bend it in different directions to get the random growing effect !

Brayered tissue paper using the limited edition JOFY Frescos is a brilliant backdrop to these flowers, which are stamped onto Prawn painted white Smoothy card. They layer up beautifully and being able to cut out the main part of the flower makes using opaque Frescos a doddle !

Next up It's Kay Carley. Kay weaves her magic with distress inks, copic markers and the new JOFY stamps to create gorgeous cards that look a lot more complicated that they actually are. Check out Kay's blog,  Kay's Crafty Corner.

Be Happy by Kay Carley using JOFY38 
These cards had images stamped in Black Memento ink, coloured with copics, and a soft background created around the designs with Distress Inks. Embellishments made with a white gel pen, and some stamped/ embossed accents in white are the finishing touch.

The same method as the sample above was used for the remaining samples. I'm sure you'll agree these are fabulous, and useful for numerous occasions when you need to have a card handy!

Finally, I'd like to share with you a few of the items I have made with my stamps. If you've been following me on twitter, you may be aware that I've not been 100% health wise of late, and frustratingly, the Doctor's orders are to do nothing until the medication kicks in. 

As my eyesight has been affected, I really have struggled to be able to make samples - my depth of vision is a bit skewiffy! So frustrating! So, for now, you'll have to excuse the limited sample offerings, but as soon as I am well, you will see many more things on my blog. Just like you, I am itching to play!!

Elegance by Jo Firth-young using JOFY38

In this sample I stamped and embossed the image in white, and added a few sparkly accents in a soft green (Wow embossing powder, Sensational Sage). Stitching around the edge is a nice finishing touch, with a zig zag on one side for a bit of added interest.

Breezey by Jo Firth-Young with JOFY38

Back to another altered book page for the starting point on this one, whitewash it before you overstamp, then add accents of colour and a bit of sparkle for the bling effect (another Wow embossing powder)... got to have a bit of sparkle somewhere!

I have no classes scheduled until August while I take time out to get my health back to normal. I do have dates scheduled for late summer, early autumn and I intend to be at the Craft Barn, Artistic Stamper, That's Crafty, Crafting Time and the Forget me not Kraft Kabin. Please watch my blog for details, you can find it here, it's called JOFY .

I really hope you are going to enjoy using these new products and that these samples from us all have inspired you to want to try something yourself.
