I chose one of the sets included in this kit create two different cards. This stamp set is called Arctic Wonder and I also used its matching die set. So the first card features three of the bear images over a striped background made of cardstock strips.

This is an easy way to create a colorful background for your cards that will make your stamped images stand out. The sentiment was simply white-embossed over a Black Licorice stitched circle, and of course some sequins made the trick to embellish this cute card.

The second card showcases the other three bear images included in the set. With that many bear images you have a lot of choices to create the perfect arctic scene, don’t you think? I stamped the images over Whip Cream cardstock with Black Licorice ink, and I arranged them over a Whip Cream panel. After that, using my Misti I stamped the sentiment and I enhanced it with Journey Glaze.

This time, I used a Holiday Cheer Prints rectangle as the background/mat for my card. I used front and back of the same sheet. The snowflakes pattern for the largest panel and I used the other side of the paper to create a strip, which also serves as the base for my bears, so they don’t look like they are floating πŸ˜‰

I finished off this card with a silver snow flake, some silver-embossed tiny snowflakes and some silver sequins.

New FSJ Happy Place Collection | Hope Everything is Going Swimmingly Card

The new Happy Place Collection by Fun Stampers Journey is here! Yes! I am quite excited about this collection because it is so fun to play with. The collection includes stamps and dies perfect to create summer projects. Today, I am sharing a card that I created using a die set called Pool with a View die set and a sentiment included in Make a Splash stamp set

The die is so versatile, you can either use it to simply create a swiming pool or create a swiming pool shaped shaker window… It is just perfect for both looks, it is up to you! For this card I began by making a printed paper rectangle and matting it with Whip Cream cardstock. Then, I adhered the panel over a Haystack folded card. After that, I die cut the summer umbrella, pool, leaves and ladder from different color of cardstock. Then, I simply arranged them over the card.

Happy 4th of July!

This year we are neither having a parade, fireworks nor a big celebration, but what we have is the opportunity to celebrate united with our hearts and be proud to be Americans. I have been a US citizen for more than five years now, and I am very proud of that and of living in this amazing country. So, I just wanted to wish you a very Happy 4th of July with this card:

For this card I used two different stamp sets: Freedom Sparkle Stamp Set and All You Do Stamp Set. I began by creating the background with Candy Apple Liquid Color and a Square Paint Brush. I layered two different size/color of stars, and I stamped the sentiment and flag.

Be aware that my post includes affiliate links, which means that if you click on and shop through them, I will receive a tiny commission. Thanks!

I adhered all the elements over the background and then, I embellished the card with silver pearls, a paper clip, a border and Sparkle silk.

Happy Retirement Cards

Some of my friends/co-workers retired this year so, since retirement cards are some of those that I dont make very often, I made some to send to them by mail. Without really paying attention if I was using current or discontinued products, I chose some Spellbinders products that I have in my stash to create my cards….

The die set that I used is called Feathers in the Wind, and I have to confess that this is a discontinued set, but I just like it a lot, so that is why I still have it! Currently there are some other feathers dies and stamps available at the Spellbinders store, which can also work for a project like mine: Feathers Cool Vibes, Shapeabilities Feathers Etched Dies, Fair Feathers Etched Dies, Floating Feathers Stamp Set.

Be aware that my post includes affiliate links, which means that if you click on and shop through them, I will receive a tiny commission. Thanks!

I also used another discontinued die set called Happy Expressions and I complemented the word “happy with the word “retirement” which I printed out with my handy dandy printer over Whip Cream cardstock. I created four cards total, same design, different colors…

The feather shape was die cut from a FSJ Printed Paper collection called Spring Filled Prints and I also die cut it from a multicolor background that I created using Journey Gel Press and some FSJ Acrylic paints

I really like how the cards turned out. The beautiful feather can shine either way, using a printed paper or your own pattern paper.

So, using the Enjoy the Ride stamp set (included in the kit), I created a card…

Lately, one of my favorite things to do is to create subtle backgrounds using Liquid Colors and a sponge dauber (you can see a quick video >>>HERE<<< This is an easy great way to keep your creations simple, and let the stamped images shine! After that, I stamped the rollercoaster image onto the background with Black Licorice Ink and I used silks to leave some fun splashes of color!

FSJ β€’ Happy Travels Card

Hello there! Quick post today sharing a card featuring a Fun Stampers Journey stamp set called Hit the Road. This set can be used to create cards as well as scrapbooking projects…

I used the main image along with a sentiment for this card. The vintage truck image is perfect to color and in this case, I stamped it onto River Stone Carstock with Black Licorice ink. Then, I colored it with my Journey Color Burst color pencils, using the Whip Cream color pencil at the end to add some details that give the truck a bit of dimension (according to me πŸ™‚ )

Next, I created the Whip Cream panel using the Gilded Nested Rectangle die sThen, I created the Whip Cream panel using the Gilded Nested Rectangle die set, which basically are rectangles with beveled corners… they look really really nice! So, I simply stamped the route map image with River Stone ink over the rectangle. After that, I adhered the panel and truck over a Rock Candy folded card, and I included a strip of Black Licorice Sparkle washi tape that I affixed with a few staples. I finished up this card with some sequins and a white-embossed sentiment over a Black Licorice strip.

Hello Friend Card

Happy Tuesday, everyone. Now that I have been enjoying some of my “stay at home time” doing some crafts, I got to play with a Spellbinders die set that I like a lot and it is called Botanical House, so I created this card:

Be aware that my post includes affiliate links, which means that if you click on and shop through them, I will receive a tiny commission. Thanks!

It seems like it was a lot of work but it really wasn’t at all. It was like playing with a little puzzle.

I began by die cutting the house using four different colors of cardstock and Whip Cream. I used a piece of a dryer sheet under the cardtstock to help keep all the pieces in their place after die cutting them. It also helps to obtain a clean cut.

Then, I adhered the Whip Cream house over a piece of a FSJ White Liner Sheet. I trimmed around the house and then I adhered all the pieces to fill in the house. No particular order for the colors or pattern, I just had fun mixing the colors.

After that, I placed the card over a Whip Cream panel. Next, I used a a die and stamp set called Hello Expressions to make the sentiment.

I complemented with a couple of leaves, a tiny flower and a white gem. Finally, I adhered the panel over a folded card with foam squares. This card was fun to make, but I couldn’t expect less since this Botanical House is so pretty and fun to play with!

I saw it on Spellbinders / FSJ

You Got This

Hello friends! It has been a long quarantine here in Illinois but my crafts and my coffee keep me strong πŸ™‚ So, today I have a quick post just to share a card that I made using Fun Stampers Journey products. The set that my card showcases is called Coffee Helps (and sure it does), take a look:

Be aware that my post includes affiliate links, which means that if you click on and shop through them, I will receive a tiny commission. Thanks!

I began by creating the background of the card which is a fun easy way to use Liquid Colors and I made a quick video of how to do it, check it out:

Then, adhered the background over a folded card. I stamped the coffee cups onto different colors of cardstock and die cut them with their matching dies. Notice that I stamped the heart of the light blue cup on the other two colors too. I adhered the cups over the card with foam squares, and I also stamped the sentiment. I fussy cut the two extra hearts and adhered them over the other two cups, then I colored them with Candy Apple Liquid Color. Finally, I simply added Journey Glaze details, which always make your cards stand out πŸ˜‰ .

Hello Card

Hey there! Days are flying by, but one of the things that I like to do everyday, no matter what, is to dedicate an hour or so to do my crafts. I have been organizing, doing scrapbooking, and of course my cards. Another thing that I have been trying to do is to order some craft supplies from some of my favorite stores including local stores. I really wouldn’t like to see any craft store closing their doors forever, so I am trying to help a little bit.

Anyway, here I am sharing a card that I create with some cool products from Hero Arts. I am including a quick recipe and a list of supplies too. Check it out:

My card showcases a pretty set called Hello Toucan. This set includes cute toucan images that are perfect to color. Coloring can be a good stress reliever. So nowadays it has been good for me to keep my color pencils and markers handy all the time πŸ˜‰ This time, I chose my color pencils to color the cool toucan, flowers and leaves. The rest, two green tones of cardstock, a sentiment, enamel dot and glaze details.

Be aware that my post includes affiliate links, which means that if you click on and shop through them, I will receive a tiny commission. Thanks!

Quick Card Recipe:

  1. Create a folded card from Pesto color cardstock.
  2. Use the Leaves & Vines Fancy Die and a Palm color cardstock rectangle (3″ x 5.5) to create a partial background. Adhere to card with craft glue.
  3. Die cut a rectangle from Dove White cardstock. Stamp sentiment with black ink. Adhere over card front with foam tape.
  4. Stamp images with black ink over Dove White cardstock. Color with color pencils. Die cut with their matching dies. Arrange and adhere over card.
  5. Apply glaze details, enamel dots and a wiggle eye.
