Altenew Designer – Jennifer Rzasa
Today we welcome Jennifer Rzasa. We are so excited to have her showcase her work today on Paper Crafter’s Library. You can see Jennifer’s fabulous project below, but first, here is a little more about her:
Jennifer is an elementary music teacher living in Massachusetts, just outside of Boston. Although she studied viola performance at Boston University and holds a master’s degree in education, her love of art has always been present in her life. She “discovered” paper crafting in 2006, but it didn’t become a hobby until four years later when she started her blog, Our Change of Art. Since then, she has been published in many paper crafting magazines, worked as a design team member for various companies, and hosts the Runway Inspired Challenge.
In addition to her paper crafting endeavors, Jennifer is a published illustrator, and enjoys painting fashion illustrations. She is thrilled to be designing and illustrating for Altenew!
When she is not teaching or in her craft room, Jennifer can be found exploring the local food in Boston, riding her skateboard with her husband Dave, sewing costumes for video game and comic book conventions, or cooking at home.
Thinking Of You Floral Card
With the help of a stamp positioner (Stamp-a-ma-jig), I created two identical cardstock panels. Images from Striped Florals were stamped in black ink, and I also masked off the center flower for a layered look. Once both panels were completed, I die cut a circle from one, and colored in the images on the other with Copic and Spectrum Noir markers. I also trimmed down the die cut panel to be thinner than the front of a card base.
Next, I created my card from white cardstock, and adhered the colored panel. A strip of black and white striped cardstock was adhered along the side, followed by the die cut panel (with foam tape for dimension).
The sentiment was stamped in VersaMark ink and embossed in white onto a strip of black cardstock, which was then adhered to the card with foam tape. A few scattered sequins finish off the card!
