Funky Fossil July/August Release

It's release day at Funky Fossil!

Let's take a look at the five new stamp stamps and the gorgeous paper pad in this release.



I'm starting today's samples with my favourite style - yep CAS.

I simply inked through the Dotty Frame stencil with the new duck egg colour of distress ink and then stamped the headphones on top.

Stamps: Funky Fossil, Gamer
Stencil: Funky Fossil, Dotty Frame
Inks: Versafine Clair, nocturne; Ranger distress, speckled egg

Next up is another simple card but perhaps with too much going on to call it CAS.

I inked up the Holly Background stencil for the top of my card and placed a piece of patterned paper from Let It Snow at the bottom. I stamped the greeting on a scrap of card and used this as a belt to cover the join between the the two backgrounds. The pointy nosed reindeer was also stamped onto a scrap of card then coloured to match and hand cut.

Stamps: Funky Fossil, Christmas Characters & Festive Phrases
Paper: Funky Fossil, Let It Snow
Inks: Versafine Clair, nocturne; Ranger distress oxide, twisted citron, mermaid lagoon, picked raspberry
Pens: Copic, YG01, YG23, G17, R85, RV04; Sakura gelly roll, white
I used the beautifully delicate Filigree Flakes for my next card. I stamped them onto vellum and then heat embossed with the dramatic Black Magic embossing powder from WOW! I hand cut the flakes and popped them up on foam pads in the top section of my card. A sprinkle of clear gems and I was done.

Stamps: Funky Fossil, Filigree Flakes
Inks: Versamark clear + WOW! Black Magic embossing powder
Die: MFT Die-namics, stitched jumbo fishtail banners & stitched basic edges
Card: Papermill Direct, anthracite sirio
Embellishments: Pretty Pink Posh, clear gems
Vellum from my stash

My final share today is so not CAS! But I loved creating it and think the formality of the squared backdrop satisfied my neat instincts. I used paper from Let It Snow, images from Christmas Characters and a greeting from Festive Phrases.

Stamps: Funky Fossil, Christmas Characters & Festive Phrases
Paper: Funky Fossil, Let It Snow
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black & rose bud
Dies: Lawn Fawn, Foursquare Backdrop Portrait; Lil'inker, stitched mats long & sinny rectangles
