Creating a Fun Stampers Journey Stamp Collage.

Hi there Crafty friends!

Today I have a Fun Stampers Journey Post to share.
I want to share some of my tips on layering inks and creating a mixed media look. 
Whether you are creating a card, box, tag or any other project. I suggest taking a piece of card stock that is a little larger than your actual project. For example, the piece I started with was a little bigger than this box I made using Fun Stampers Journey Treat Box Die DI-0006. Reason being is if your card stock fits your project you are going to be thinking where exactly you want to stamp each stamp pattern. We want a 'random look right, off-center. So for me this is the easiest way I can achieve that look.

So now I have my card stock I'm going to create a little collage.

After I trim my paper down to now fit my project I inked the edges in black giving a little border. Then, I added this adorable little Hot Air Balloon from the Lift Me Stamp Set. I used a foam dot to give this some dimension. Wrap some ribbon and pop a bow on and voila!  
A daring little gift box!

I hope you enjoy the rest of your week and have a crafty weekend!
