SB • Love You Card

Hello friends! Today I want to share a card that I created using a fun die set by Spellbinders. This is the small die of the month (January), and it is called First Crush. I really enjoyed putting this card together.. it kind of reminded me about my childhood paper dolls… I loved to use my scissors to cut out all the clothes and accessories for my dolls, so much fun back then….(sigh) Anyway, here is the card I made:

The die set includes twenty one pieces that can be use to create a boy or a girl, and it is up to you to choose the color of their hair and clothes. I used Fun Stampers Journey cardstock colors for mine. You can find the complete list of cardstock colors that I used for this card at the end of this post.

The boy’s hair was die cut from Hazelnut Blend cardstock and I enhanced the ridges by rubbing Cocoa Powder ink pad over it. For the girl, I used Tangerine Fusion cardstock and I enhanced it with the same color of ink.

I added a star and a heart stickers over their clothes, just as an extra detail. I also used the Heart balloon shape (included in the set) but I trimmed out the bottom part with scissors to make it into a plain heart tag. Then, I stamped a sentiment over it. I layered the dolls and tag onto a SB Fancy Edged Oval, and then onto card base. I won’t say it was a quick card, since there are lots of little pieces to put together, but I will say that it was a lot of fun to do it!

FSJ Stamp of the Month: Natural Dreamer

The new Fun Stampers Journey Stamp of The Month is called Natural Dreamer and it showcases pretty whimsy images that are just perfect to create fabulous projects. So, today I am sharing a card that I created with this set:


I began by stamping a Lace background image over a Watermelon Fusion cardstock panel with Sweet Berry True Color Fusion ink. Then, I adhered the panel over a Sweet Berry folded card.

The focal point was created by Stamping the image over a Whip Cream circle with Sweet Berry True Color Fusion ink. Then, I white-embossed a second image over vellum. After that, I placed the embossed image onto the Sweet Berry image a bit off center to create a shadow effect. With the image on the right place, I made some pencil marks so I could die cut the vellum into a circle slightly bigger than the one below. I adhered the two circles together with a few glue dots (placing them where they were not going to be noticeable).

The rest of the card was simple: a white-embossed sentiment over a Black Licorice strip and matted with a gold strip, Gold Fashion pearls, a heart shaped clip and some silk.

SB Sunshiny Day Card Kit

A few months back, I received the Sunshiny Day Card Kit to complete a couple of projects for Spellbinders, and let me tell you that I was very pleased with what I could accomplish with it. It doesn’t really matter if you are a beginner or an avid card maker, the SB card kits are super fun to play with, and they will keep you busy creating for hours. The box that I received was full of products that I could use to create at least ten cards. Take a look:

This particular kit includes: 10 Cards & 10 Envelopes, 7 Sheets of 8.5 x 11” Paper/Cardstock, Set of 14 Dies, 6 x 6” Paper Pad, Pack of Die Cut Shapes, Epoxy and Foil Stickers, Clear Stamps, Sequins & Flowers, a Roll of Adhesive & Foam Dots.

So after I finished a couple of projects for SB, I ended up with a barely used card kit. Therefore, a couple weeks ago I went to a scrapbooking crop, and I brought the card kit with me . I planned to use only the products included in the kit and complete as many cards as I could. These are the projects I created:

The patterned papers are beautiful, the colors coordinate perfectly with the cardstock and die cut shapes included in the kit. As you can see, in the die cut shape package you get more than one of each shape, which in my opinion it is great, because you can duplicate your project or use the same shape in different projects!

The kit includes a stamp set and a die set too. I used a sentiment from the stamp set and I also die cut a cute starfish from the yellow cardstock provided. I also made the base cards from the purple and black cardstock included.

I was impressed with the amount of die cut shapes included in the kit, because after I finished all my cards, I still have many left over that I can use on more projects! On the second card, the Birthday sentiment (underneath the happy die cut sentiment) is not included in the kit.

For these two cards, I used two cute cars which are my favorite die cut shapes, and I included a few Epoxy stickers which are such a great detail for any card.

Another great product included are the Puffy Foil Stickers…. they are just great and they look amazing! I really had a fun time at the scrapbooking crop creating with this card kit.

Well, these are all the projects I created and the left overs from my kit…. pretty good, Don’t you think? I can still take advantage of my stamp set and my die set that I barely used…. I might do a few more projects with them soon!

I would like to point out that currently there are many beautiful card kits available to chose from, but you also have the option to sign up for the Card Kit Club, which is a monthly subscription, and that means that each month you will get a brand new kit at an incredible price.

FSJ Stamp of the Month: Fresh Start

April has just begun, so that means a brand new Fun Stampers Journey Stamp of the Month has just been released. This new stamp set is called Fresh Start. I love that this set features a bunch of flower images that are perfect to color using any of your favorite techniques. The sentiments included are also beautiful and just right for Spring.


For this card, I used Liquid Colors (Lemon Drop, Limeade Splash, Orange Creamsicle, and Sweet Pear) to create a fun background over a Whip Cream  Panel. I adhered this panel onto a Lemon Drop folded card. After that, I stamped the images with Black Licorice ink over Whip Cream  cardstock. I used a brush to color the images with Liquid Colors as well, and then I fussy cut the shapes with scissors.

Next, I adhered a piece of polka dot washi tape over a Whip Cream  long strip of cardstock , and I trimmed one of the ends to make it look like a long banner. I also die cut a hollow circle from Lemon Drop cardstock, and I used it as the frame for my bunch of flowers.

Last, I white-embossed a sentiment over Black Licorice cardstock, and I die cut it into a circle and I adhered it onto the card using foam squares. To finish up this card I added some sequins and glitter gems. I loved the color combination I used, so here you have it:

I stamped the sentiment with Black Licorice Ink over a piece of Whip Cream cardstcok and then I die cut it into a heart shape. I arranged and I adhered the pieces over the card front using glue dots and foam squares. Last, but not least, I included a Heart paper clip and Fresh Sage tiny bow and some Sweet Candy Drops.

FSJ SOTM • We Rise Up By Lifting Others

Hello, hello! I have a quick post today just to share another idea of a card using the Fun Stampers Journey Stamp of the Month: Good Places.

For this card, I chose to make a mixed background using some paper scraps and a soft tones color combo. I used a piece of gingham printed paper from the Good Life Prints collection along with a couple of Banana Cream and Tin Pail rectangles. I embossed the Tin Pail rectangle with the Tiny Dots embossing folder just to add a bit of texture. I adhered those pieces over a Whip Cream folded card, and I also added a border detail (Tin Pail cardstock + Pocket Trims Die Set).

Using Black Licorice ink, I stamped the sentiment over a tag shape (Whip Cream cardstock + Special Day Tags die set) . Then, I stamped the windmill on Tin Pail Cardstock with Chambray Shirt ink, and die cut it with its matching die. Next, I white embossed the heart image and die cut it as well. After that, I arranged the tag, windmill and heart over the card, and I adhered them using glue dots and foam squares. Last but not least, I embellished the card with some pearls and some rhinestones.

Good Luck Cards + FSJ & SB Online Warehouse Sale

Hello friends! I have a couple of projects to share today. The month of March is literally flying by and I  can’t believe we will be celebrating St. Patricks Day this weekend! Do you celebrate it? Well, we are not Irish, but I think it is fun to pretend we are and wear something green that day, or have the excuse to make a card to give it to a friend or family member, don’t you think?

Anyhow, as I said in the beginning, I created two cards for this Irish day featuring an ATS stamp set called ExtraLucky and the Lucky Clovers Die Set. 
If you have seen some of my projecst before, you should know that I love creating backgrounds with Liquid Colors, so I created one using my JourneyGel Press, Limeade Splash and Sweet Pear Liquid Colors, a brayer along with a Whip Cream cardstock panel. The steps are simple: 1)  Apply liquid colors over the gel press, 2) Spray a bit of water, 3) Spread the colors with the brayer, 4) Pick up the color with the cardstock panel, and 5) Let it dry.

Once the panel was dried,  I adhered it over a Limeade Splash folded card. Next, I stamped the sentiment over it with Black Licorice Ink and I added Journey Glaze over the words (I always love using it to make the sentiments stand out).  I have to say that this product doesn’t take too long to dry, so that is why I like it a lot!

Next, I die cut a clover from Kiwi Slice cardstock. I continued my project by adhering the clover over the card front with foam squares. To finish up this card I used Black Licorice Silk, some green sequins and Lemon Grass thread.

For my second project, I used the Note Pocket Die to create a Sweet Pear cardstock pocket for a small card. After I assembled the pocket, I adorned it with a couple strips of Journey tape and a clover that I die cut from Limeade Splash cardstock. Quick and easy!

Then, I created a folded card from Whip Cream cardstock, and I stamped some Sweet Pear clovers over the card front and a sentiment with Black Licorice ink. As always, I also added Journey Glaze over the words to make the sentiment shine! 



 I flicked some Gold Silk onto the card and I embellished it with some gold sequins. Finally, I tucked the card into the pocket and I added a clip and Lemon Grass thread bow to finish up this card.

Well, today I also want to share that currently Spellbinders and Fun Stamper Journey are having an…

FSJ Stamp of the Month: Good Places

Good Places is the name of the current Stamp of the Month by Fun Stampers Journey. I have a card that I made with it and I want to share with you, take a look:

The set is so pretty and includes images like windmills, a tulip, wooden shoes and some sentiments. For this particular card I created a background made of different colors of cardstock: Pineapple Smoothie, Haystack, Rustic Rose and Peaches & Cream. I created different sizes of rectangles and arranged them over a Whip Cream folded card. Then I used the Green House die to cut a label from Whip Cream cardstock which I used to stamp the sentiment with Black Licorice ink.

After that, I stamped the windmill images over Whip Cream cardstock with Pomegranate Splash ink and I die cut it with its matching die (Matching dies are sold separately) . I also white-embossed the wooden shoes overPeaches & Cream cardstock and die cut it as well. I arranged them over the label and adhered them using foam squares. To finish up this card, I only used a few Sweet Candy Drops and presto!

If you like the color combo I used, here you have it:

Going Places Stamp SetBlack Licorice inkSweet Candy Drops

Thinking of You Card

Happy Friday, friends! Here is a card that I created featuring a pretty stamp set called: Strength and Hope along with some others fabulous Fun Stampers Journey products.

I used the Diamond Netting Embossing Folder and Sweet Pear cardstock to make a background panel. I adhered the panel over a folded card of the same color. This is one of my favorites embossing folders, the diamonds pattern is clean and simple, so pretty! I also used the Ornate Blooms ATS stamp and Liquid Colors (Cool Pool, Peaches & Cream, Lemon Grass) to create a stamped panel. This time, it did not really matter if the image was perfect, I knew that just a bit of it was going to be shown so, I think it looks imperfectly perfect for my card. I trimmed the image into a rectangle and I adhered it onto a Cool Pool cardstock mat.

I stamped the butterfly, flower and sentiment using Black Licorice ink over Whip Cream cardstock. I only added Journey Glaze and Sparkle Cuts to them. Next, I die cut the butterfly and flower with their matching die, and I trimmed the sentiment with scissors. After that, I adhered them over a Whip Cream tag that belongs to the Special Day Tags die set. No need for embellishments this time, the card looks so pretty as it is!

I also want to share that currently Fun Stampers Journey has a sale called: Encore-Returning Favorites promoting some fabulous stamp sets, dies and printed papers that were previously retired but now are back at the store. Be aware that these products will be available while supplies last. Please be sure to click >>>HERE<<< to see the complete list of products, you might want to get some of them!

Enjoy Life & Have Fun Card

Winter weather can get you thinking about warmer days and make you want to fast-forward until Spring! I know, I know, we are getting there. Having Spring weather in mind, I created a fun card using a couple of die sets from the Spellbinders Indie Line along with some Fun Stampers Journey products. The cool sun and cloud set is called Happy Weather and the stamp and die sentiments set is called Enjoy Expressions. I have to point out that this collection is only sold by independent shops, so you can search for the name directly on your browser.

Every time I create backgrounds using Liquid Colors, I always end up with extra backgrounds. So I used one of those extra panels as the background of my card. I matted it with a Whip Cream panel over a Turbo Teal folded card. Then, I used a piece of Lemon Drop cardstock to die cut the sun and Whip Cream cardstock to create the cloud. Additionally, I used a fine tip black pen to carefully draw the eyes and mouth of the shapes. I colored their cheeks with a Journey Color Burst Pure Color Pencils as well. I have to say that the cute shapes of this set can make any background shine!

The sentiment was die cut from Orange Creamsicle and Whip Cream cardstock and before I adhered it over the card front, I stamped one of the matching sentiments that comes along with the dies with Black Licorice Ink. Carefully and patiently I adhered the raindrops onto the card, and I only used a Petal Clip to complement this cute card!

I also want to share that currently Fun Stampers Journey has a sale called: Encore-Returning Favorites promoting some fabulous stamp sets, dies and printed papers that were previously retired but now are back at the store. Be aware that these products will be available while supplies last. Please be sure to click >>>HERE<<< to see the complete list of products, you might want to get some of them!
