NEW JoFY stamps: Blowsy Blooms {by Keren Baker}

March 2019 New Products
JoFY Collection

Beautiful bursts of colour from Keren showcasing Jo's new stamps. I love her use of white and colour in such a striking way, and the projects shown here range from interior decor through to a fast card. Lots to love! ~ Leandra

A stockist list is here (remember we always put a list of current approved stockists a the foot of the designer's post introducing their new stamps). here is a reminder of Jo's new stamps for March, announced yesterday.

Hi everyone, 
It's Keren with you today showing Jo's new set of stamps and stencils. I loved them that much, I got a little carried away and did two projects instead of one, using only one base that I split into two too! 

JoFY stamps always have such character. They're so elegantly quirky! I wanted to produce a frame using the leafy stamps from JoFY 75. Just by cutting around the edges of the stamped images it creates a grid to add the flowers onto.

If you aren't into fussy cutting, you could add the stems behind a frame. I absolutely adore the big blowsy blooms. They are really dimensional which is why I kept the colouring simple and added some depth using alcohol markers.

Jo's images are a delight to add colour to. You can make them bold or subtle. I added some colour pop using scrunched up thread in bold colours! 

You can see the incredible detail in each image- so much to add colour to, but she's also left enough space for those of us who love a little doodling!

The second project was using JoFY 74 and this time I used the inside frame from the shadow box that I used in the first project.

You can see the stencilled background. I used Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylic paint in Snowflake 

The stamped and embossed leaves have a floral feel to them too. Watercolour'ed up they look so beautifully delicate.

I love the way they can look so different. In fact, they're like doughnuts and I even spied a fried egg in the first set ;-)

Lastly, a super quick and easy CAS card using her third set; JoFY 76. The sentiments make a fab background!

I chose a grey ink for the background so it really doesn't detract from the sketchy florals. Love how easy it is to make a card.

Just a few watercolour spots here and there and call it done!

As usual, these images will pair wonderfully with whatever JoFY stamp sets you already own. I'm really looking forward to mixing and matching these gorgeous new sets. 

The dimension and doodled details combined with the text, make for such versatile stamps. You will totally love them!

Thanks for joining me today, I hope you have a creative week.
