FSJ • 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 🙂 )

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 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 😉 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.

Hang In There + Spring Cleaning Warehouse Sale

Hello there! I know these past last weeks have been hard for everyone because, spending a lot of time at home can be challenging. In my case, besides doing some organizing and cleaning in home I have also been taking advantage of the extra time making some cards. So, today I am sharing a simple card that I created using one super cute stamp set called: Don’t Hurry, take a look:

I began by creating the subtle background using a Dauber Dowel Small and Lovely Blue Liquid Color. I wet the dauber with the liquid color and applied it from center towards the edges in a circular motion. I achieved a pretty ombré effect. Then, while the panel was drying, I colored the sloth and branch using my Color Burst Pure Color Pencils. One of the things that I like to do when I am using my color pencils, is to moisten the tip of a Color Burst Blender stick with a product called Gamsol. This product helps to get rid off a little bit of the texture that color pencils leave on paper and it also helps to blend the different tones of colors that you are using.

For the sentiment I used a set called Solid-Bet Stamp Set and its Matching Die Set (Outline Bet Die Set). These two products are currently ON SALE at a great price. For this card I stamped the word “hang” and I used part of a sentiment included in the stamp set. I arranged all the elements over the background and I adhered the panel over a folded card. To finish up this card I adhered some small heart stickers.

Please feel free to click on any of the links below to see more details about the products that I used to create my card:

Additionally, I want to share that at Spellbinders and Fun Stampers Journey currently are having a fabulous sale:

The deals are awesome with lots of fantastic products that you might want to have in your stash, like dies, stamp sets, embellishments and tools. So today I am also sharing some cards that I created in the past with a few of the stamp sets and products on sale:

The set includes a couple of flower bouquets and some sentiments. I stamped one of the flowers stamps over white cardstock, and I added some color details with markers. This stamp is so pretty that it doesn’t really need much color to look lovely! I complemented the image with a sentiment that I white-embossed over a black cardstock strip. I placed both of them over a double layer of rectangles.

Then, I created the background using a stencil called Leaf Pattern (this stencil came along with the June MMH kit). I used it to embossed a dark pink cardstock panel, and after that I adhered it over a black folded card. I adhered the focal point layers over the card, and I embellished it with yellow enamel dots.

My second card shows a cute and fun set called Kittens in Kimonos.

I began by creating the stamped background. Using the Parasol Bold Prints stamp with red ink over a red cardstock panel, I created a subtle image. I added the panel over a black folded card.

After that, I stamped two of the kittens over white cardstock and colored them with markers. I die cut them with their matching frame cuts. Then, I white-embossed a sentiment over a black cardstock strip. To finish up the card I arranged the stamped element over the card and I complement them with a white circle shape, decorative tape and some enamel dots. Simple yet fun!

You Are One in a Chameleon Card

Happy Friday! I have a Hero Arts card today that features a pretty Stamp & Cut set called Chameleon. This type of sets are fabulous because they make things easier for you. You get the stamps and matching dies in the same package at a great price. So, take a look of the card I created:

For this card, the images were simply colored with Chameleon Markers (how clever, right?) and then they were die cut with their matching dies. I arranged them over a circle shape and I of course I also white-embossed sentiment onto a black small circle to complement the focal point.

To make the background I used a a green panel that I previously created with FSJ liquid colors. Then, I stamped the Jungle Bold Prints background over it with Lime to Forever Green Ombré Ink Pad. This kind of pads are one of my favorite products from Hero Arts, just because they make your stamping more interesting and fun! I matted the panel with a darker green panel and adhered it over a folded card. After that, I placed the main elements over the card, I embellished it with some Sunset Hero Hues Enamel Dots, Journey Glaze and Journey Sparkle Cuts details.

Toucan Do It Card


Hello, hello! Quick post today just to share a shaker card that I created using a fun and pretty Spellbinders die set called Shapeabilities Botanical House Etched Dies, take a look:

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 020720web_toucandoit-1.jpg

I don’t often create shaker cards, but I have to say that they are fun to make. In this case the house frame and the leaves were placed above the acetate. I affixed them between the frame and the acetate and then, the confetti was placed underneath the acetate so it could move freely.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 020720web_toucandoit2-1.jpg

I thought that pretty house was missing some visitors, so I used a couple of toucan and flower stickers to create a fun scene. I also stamped a sentiment from a FSJ stamp set called Toucan Do It. If you like this set, please be sure to visit the SB store and see all the new stuff that they have i

HA• Thank You Card

Hello there! Quick post today, just to share a thank you card that I created using a cute stamp set by Hero Arts: Teacup Flowers. I love the flower images that remind me about how fun and pretty Spring is!

Well, one thing that I liked a lot about this particular set is that it includes a variety of different blooms, leaves, and other floral details that are perfect to create bouquets. For my card, I stamped the images with Intense Black ink and then, I colored them with markers, with very little details… They are just very pretty by themselves! Then, I die cut them with their matching frame cuts.

I arranged them over a white panel using glue dots and foam tape to add dimension. After that, I white embossed a simple sentiment over a strip of black cardstock. Finally, I adhered the panel over a folded card, and I added some clear dots as the final touches. Simple, colorful and fun.

FSJ Stamp of the Month: Spring in The Desert

Hello friends! February has just started so it is time to share a card featuring the Fun Stampers Journey Stamp of the Month: Spring in the Desert. This stamp set is full of beautiful flowers and succulents, perfect to to create pretty bouquets and backgrounds too. So, for today I created this card:

I began by adhering a patterned paper rectangle over a Hazelnut Blend folded card. Then I die cut a Fancy Edged Rectangle from Whip Cream cardstock and I stamped a sentiment. I adhered the rectangle over the card.

The images were also stamped with Black Licorice ink over Peaches and Cream cardstock, and then I added details with liquid colors. I fussy cut the images and I arranged them over the rectangle giving them dimension with foam squares. Last but not least, I embellished the cards with sequins, pearls and thread.

Be sure to find a lot more wonderful inspiration and details about the November SOTM over the Spellbinders-FSJ blog, and a great video for you to WATCH.

FSJ’s Kindness Matters Collection is Here!

Kindness Matters is the name of the new collection that Fun Stampers Journey has just released and today, I am delighted to share two cards created with one of my favorite stamp sets from this release: Baby Farm Animals and its coordinating dies.

For my first card, I took advantage of the cute outlined darling images, and I grabbed my Journey Splash Watercolor Pencils to color them. Once the color dried, I die cut them with their matching dies.

I thought a red barn would be a perfect match for these cute creatures, so I die cut a Candy Apple Reversed Banner shape and I cut off two of its corners to create the shape of a traditional barn.

After that, I created the lines with a ruler and a thin marker. Then, to create the barn doors, I simply made two small rectangles and I dragged criss cross lines with my white Journey Burst Color Pencil. I glued those two pieces over a Whip Cream rectangle and adhered the piece over the barn.

I created the little window over the door the same way. I finished up the barn with a piece of Hazelnut Blend cardstock to create the roof over the barn. Quite simple if you ask me, but fun to create.

My second card is a bit simpler than the one above. In this case, I simply stamped the baby animals with Black Licorice True Color Fusion Ink over different colors of cardstock.

I used the grass and cloud die cuts from the Sweet Home Accent die set to create a simple, yet pretty scene for the cute baby animals.

I arranged them over a rectangle cut out of Pool Play cardstock and of course I also included a sentiment. I finished up the card with wiggle eyes for the cute animals and some white pearls here and there.

Anyway, please be sure to visit the FSJ shop and see the whole collection; you can either buy the products individually or you can also buy a Project Kit, which means a great deal!

FSJ • Stamp of the Month: Penguin Waddle

Hey there! I am beginning this month with a card featuring the Stamp of the Month by Fun Stampers Journey: Penguin Waddle. This cute set includes a bunch of adorable penguins and various sentiments which are great to create winter cards 😉 Take a look:

I began by creating the background using a Catalina Splash Cardstock panel, and I simply rubbed Whip Cream PanPastel over the panel in a circular motion from the center towards the edges to create an ombré effect. Then, I simply matted the panel with Watermelon Fusion Cardstock and adhered the panel over a Pool Play Cardstock folded card. I flicked some Sparkle Silk over the background too.

I die cut the hill from Whip Cream cardstock and adhered it onto the card. Then, I stamped the penguins with Black Licorice True Color Fusion Ink, I colored their feet and beaks with a color pencil, and stamped those cute hats. This set doesn’t have a matching die set, but they are super easy to fussy-cut with your detail scissors. Finally, I white embossed a sentiment and die cut it into a heart shape. I adhered penguins and heart with foam squares and embellish with Fashion Silver pearls, a piece of Silver Sparkle Washi Tape and a Petal Clip.
