Hi! Today I want to share some happy news with you. Recently I have accepted a part time position as part of the Fun Stampers Journey crew. I am really thrilled about this great opportunity :D😀 :D  Fun Stampers Journey is a direct sales company that was started by Richard Garay a few years back. Although, Richard has been immersed in the industry for many many years, it was not until a couple years ago when he, along with his wife and a crew of talented people started this journey.

As part of my new endeavors, I will be working on projects that will be mainly used by FSJ for catalogs, but I will continue to share projects once a week using  the FSJ line exclusively here on my personal blog. Today  I am also sharing a simple card that I made using some of my new FSJ products. The set that I used for this project is called Summer Rose:

fsjhellofriendcard0916

I created a bouquet of flowers by stamping the images with two colors of ink over a Whip Cream card stock panel. The sentiment belongs to a set called Greetings Trends Stamp set and it was stamped with Black Licorice Ink. I added a layer of Journey Glaze on top of the sentiment just for fun and I embellished this card with Bubble Gum Thread and pink sequins.

Happy Friday, everyone!

Today is the STAMPtember® Exclusive release of a fun set by Hero Arts for Simon Says Stamp. As part of the festivities I was kindly invited to play with this FABULOUS stamp & die combo called Happy Thanksgiving (available while supplies last).

This stamp & die combo is just perfect to create Thanksgiving cards and other Fall projects.  I love that you have different additional words that you can mix to create different messages, and it also includes a die-cut sentiment  and a few cute images:)

092016web_thanksg1

I used the Crossing Waves Stencil and Tangerine Hybrid Ink to create a background on a Snow folded card. I stamped the words “thanks giving” over a piece of Snow Layering Paper using the Ombré Autumn ink. I complemented the sentiment with the word “happy”which I stamped with Intense Black ink. I die cut this panel into a circle using the new Circle Infinity Dies.

092016web_thanksg2

I adhered the circle onto the card base with foam tape, and I complemented it with some of the small images colored with Copics. To finish off my card,  I embellished it with a few gemstones and some sequins.

HI! Today I have a short post just to share a card showcasing some products included in the 2016 Winter Catalog by Hero Arts.

092016web_hhallow1

The stamp & cut set that I used is called Kelly’s Monster. I simply stamped the image and sentiment over a piece os Snow Layering Paper with Intense Black ink. The cute monster was colored the  with Copics and I die cut it with its matching frame. I die cut the sentiment as well.

092016web_hhallow2

I used the Spider Web stencil to create a background over a Gray panel. I used Wet Cement Ink and a sponge dauber to do so. I matted the panel with Grass Layering paper and I adhered the panel over a Black Folded card. I adhered the monster and sentiment with foam tape. I stamped a few bats over the background to complement the scene and finally, I embellished the card with Baker’s twine and a few Glossy Accents details.

Happy Monday everyone!

Today is the release day for the My Monthly Hero kit of September! This new wonderful kit will be available TODAY September 6 at 1pm (Eastern time) at the Hero Arts store. Be aware that this kit is available for a limited time only – once it’s gone, it’s gone.

This month’s kit includes many beautiful products for the coming  Holidays season. Additionally, the stamps in this month’s kit feature talented Creative Team member Clare Prezzia‘s hand lettering :)🙂🙂

The main contains: A set of three Fancy Dies designed for building your own wreath,  4×6 clear stamp set, ten coordinating Frame Cuts dies, three ink cubes in Mustard, Rust and Deep Burgundy, six half sheets of cardstock (Kraft, Sunset Orange and Metallic Copper), Custom Freckled Fawn enamel dots in red, brown gems, Brown and Natural Jute twines.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This kit is simply amazing. I love all the beautiful dies that are included in it and the endless possibilities for your projects! Today I am sharing a card that I created  using just a few of the items included in the kit.

I began by die-cutting the partial foliage branch from the Metallic Coper cardstock. Then I adhered it over a Snow Layering Paper card base. Then, I die-cut a tag shape (Infinity tags) from Kraft, and I layered it on top of the foliage with foam tape.

090516web_thankfulforyou

I  Gold-embossed  the sentiments over two thin strips of Sunset Orange card stock. I trimmed diagonally the left side of each strip, and  I layered them on top of the tag with foam tape.  I complemented the cluster with some small leaves that I die-cut from green card stock (I also  inked them a little bit directly with Pine Hybrid Ink). To finish off the card, I added twine, brown gemstones, gold and green silk sprinkles.

Hi everyone! Today I am sharing a card that features a pretty Hero Arts set called Warm Hugs. This set includes cute images that are perfect to color with markers, color pencils or watercolors…you name it!

083116web_warmwishes

I created the background of my card by partially covering a Snow Layering Paper panel with a sticky note. Then I used a sponge dauber and the Summer Sky Hybrid Ink to create a soft blue background. After that, I stamped the images with Intense Black ink over a piece of Snow Layering Paper and I colored the images with Copic Markers.

083116web_warmwishes2

I die cut the images with their matching dies, and after that I adhered them over the background panel with foam tape. I stamped a sentiment with Intense Black ink, and I adhered the panel over a card base with foam tape as well.

I finished off this card with some Cristal drops details and  white thread. Please be sure to visit the Hero Arts store where allthe new Winter products are now available.

Hello, and Welcome!

Winter_bloghop_600.jpg

Today we are celebrating the launch of the Winter 2016 release in the Hero Arts store!! The products have been shipping to retailers for a few weeks now, so you may have seen them out and about. As of today, you can see and get all the new fabulous Winter products at the HA store. So exciting!

As part of this hop, I created a card using a Stamp + Die Combo that I definitely like a lot: Holiday Mittens. I always like to make some small Holiday cards, because I think they look super cute and they are just perfect to give to some of the students at school.

I thought about making three  cards from a single sheet of card stock instead of two. So,  I placed my 8.5″ x 11″sheet of Snow Layering Paper horizontally  into the trimmer, and I trimmed at 10.5″, 7″ and 3.5″. I folded each of the cards in half to created folded cards that measure 3.5″ x 4.25″

082116web_warmestw1

Then, I simply stamped the small mittens images using the colors of Mariana’s Pool ink cubes to create a pattern over the card front. Next, I used  the Soft Pool ink cube to color a piece of Snow Layering Paper, directly dabbing the pad over it. Additionally, I stamped the mittens image with Deep Ocean ink cube, and die cut the shapes.

082116web_warmestw2

After that, I stamped the mittens cord, and the sentiment over the stamped card. To finish off the card, I adhered the mittens with foam tape, and I added some clear gemstones. I also experimented creating another size of card: 3.5″ x 5.25″, which is also a nice size and you can see below:

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I like the mystical feeling of fairy lanterns, so the inspiration for my card came from them:

072816web_MMHaugust1

I used two different tones of inks and a sponge dauber to create the ombré background onto a snow layering paper panel. Then, I stamped the fairy image and sentiment with black ink. I filled in  the fairy outline with a black marker to create a silhouette.

072816web_MMHaugust2

I adhered the panel over a Black Layering paper card base, and after that, I used a black Snow Layering paper panel to die cut the forest oval border. I adhered this panel over the card with foam tape. Finally, I used Glossy Accents to add glitter over the fairy, and to adhere the clear droplets.

Well, as part of this release, Hero Arts is giving away one kit as a prize to one blog reader – selected from the comments across all of the blogs in the hop. Here is the list of bloggers so you can get lots of inspiration:
