A Creativation 2017 Find - Guest Designer Josafine

Creativation was an incredible adventure this year.

I am always looking for that take away or that special something. I will breakdown all that happened in the coming posts, but being so busy when I returned, a vortex was created that has sucked time away faster then I could imagine.

But the first of my takeaways was Josafine Fouarge

(aka @holylise on instagram or +HolyLise on google) 

Josafine joined in one of our make and takes on the Creativation show floor.  Her passion was ignited in the project and she fell in love with the products. Much to my surprise she inquired about any DT openings and I took a blind gamble and went with a guest post. 

Moments like this is why the Creative Arts industry is so wonderful, the unknown talent is limitless. I was thrilled and covered in goosebumps when she submitted a rough project photo.

Please Check out Josafine's 'Simple' projects with emphasis on Fractured Ice Embossing powder by Emerald Creek &  The Simple stamp from Kelly Klapstein's brush letting collection.

I’m so excited to be guest designing for Emerald Creek today and I’m so grateful for this opportunity. Thanks Kim for letting me create with your amazing products!

I couldn’t stop myself, so I decided to create not just one, but two cards using the “simple” stamp from Kelly Klapstein. I think it’s a gorgeous font and even though the word might suggest a clean and simple card, I wanted to get a little messier with it.

I started with creating some texture for one of the cards using a doily stencil and white texture paste. Thankfully, the paste dried fast, so I was able to mess around with some Color Bursts, creating two very different backgrounds. Then I stamped the “simple” word - one on vellum and heat embossed with Fractured Ice Crystals, the other directly on top of the paper and outlined with a black pen – and added some finishing touches by adhering a few gemstones to the card and wrapping white twine around it.

What do you think? Too simple for the “simple” stamp? ;)

(Don't miss our 'Rock the Red' Dare too, I can see these projects inspiring some Red Versions)

Happy Creating!
