FSJ Concept Designers Gel Press Print Swap

The FSJ Concept Designers have been having a little fun together (well, a LOT of fun) and today we want to show you what we’ve been working on! We had ourselves a little print swap. The six of us divided up into pairs. Three of the designers created an 8.5×11″ print on the Journey Gel Press. Then they cut their print in half and sent half to their partner. Each partner created a card using that print, and today we’re going to share what we’ve created! It was a really fun swap and I can’t wait to see all three of the prints, and how each designer used their print on a project!
I was one of the designers that made an 8.5×11″ print, and I created it by using warm acrylic paint tones  (I was thinking of the Fall season ), with a pop of white. I really liked how it turned out ! Besides the acrylic paints, I used stencils and modeling paste. This is my half:

 I mailed the other half of the print to my partner for the swap who is Michelle, and  I have created this card with my half:

Since the colors were warm, I thought about making a thank you card for the Fall season. I used the Journey Gel Press print to make a background for the card, and I paired it with a thank you sentiment from a set called: Summer Garden.  I also used one Foiled Frame, some leaves and a zig-zag border.

To finish up my card I used some Gold Fashion dots and Gold ThreadSo now, if you haven’t visited Michelle yet, please click here to see what she has come up with her half! 
Then, hop around to the rest of the teams, and see the prints they created, plus how they each used those prints! 
 
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Enjoy the rest of the swap stops, and don’t forget to pin everyone’s projects for inspiration later on!”

FSJ • Happy Thanksgiving

Hello friends! Today I am sharing a card that I created to wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving. This card features wonderful products from the Fun Stampers Journey Holidays catalog. Take a look:

112317web_happythanksg

I used one of the paper prints from the Fall Fest Prints as the background. Then I stamped some of the leaves from the Hello Fall stamp set using different colors of ink. I die cut those images with their matching dies.

112317web_happythanksg2

I created the sentiment with the Happy Merry stamp set, and I want to point out that this is one of the sets you need to have for the holiday season. It has lots of sentiments that can be combined to make sentiments from Halloween to New Years. Anyway,  once I have stamped it, I cut it into a strip and I matted it with a strip of Kraft cardstock.  Then, I layered the leaves and sentiment over the card, and I used s few Rainbow Drops and Gold Thread to complete my card.

Well, that’s all from me for today.  I hope you enjoy this special day spending time with all your loved ones and eating lots of yummy food!

Thanks for stopping by:)  I’ll be back soon to share another project!

FSJ • Thanks Card + Video

Hello friends. Autumn is my favorite season of the year.  I like the colors of the surroundings,  and I even  like the type of weather, not so warm, not so cold, just perfect.  Anyways, today I am back to share a Fall themed card featuring lots of Fun Stamper Journey products along with a fun technique.

I am not going to describe how I created this card on this post, since I made a short video showing all the steps from start to finish,  as well as the fun stamping technique that I used. Check it out:

Here is another close up of my card, where you can see details of the technique 😀

I liked how this card turned out a lot. The leaves look really pretty in real life, and it is so easy to create!

FSJ • October Planner Pages

Hello friends! The Fun Stampers Journey Make your Mark promotion will end very soon.   You still have a few days to get some of these fabulous products that were created specially for your planners.  Be sure to contact one of the Journey Coaches to take advantage of this great promotion.

102517web_planneroctober

So today I am sharing some Halloween planner pages that I created for next week. My two sons are older now, so we don’t  celebrate Halloween at home as we did before, but we still like to decorate and have candy ready for the spooky visitors.

102517web_planneroctober5

For these planner pages I used several stamp sets from the Journey Days Collection as well as some other stamps from the Holidays Mini Catalog. It is fun to mix and match your stamps and use them on other projects besides your cards, and even create some other elements like paper clips.

102517web_planneroctober2

I also created a pouch using the Fun Sleeve die along with Fall Fest Prints, thinking that I can use it to hold some of the pictures I take that day.

102517web_planneroctober4

In addition, I used one photo sleeve to hold a recipe that I love to make every year on this special occasion. I like the idea of maybe using the same sleeve next year 🙂

102517web_planneroctober3

On the following page, since November the 2nd. is the day when “El Día de los Muertos” is celebrated in Mexico, and this is an important tradition, I included a picture of the “altar” that my sister sets in honor of my mom and dad each year.  It is a little reminder for me to light up a candle for them that day.

Anyways, I hope you feel inspired to decorate your planners and if you haven’t tried it before, give it try. It is a fun thing to do! 🙂

Please be sure to stop by the FSJ blog for more inspiration and ideas on using your planner products.

FSJ • All Hallows’ Eve Card

Hello friends, I am back today to share a card that I created using some Fun Stampers Journey products.  I want to point out that this time I  used a simple and fun  SplitcoastStamper sketch (SCS664) to create my card.

092917web_hallows2

The stamp set that I used is called Hallows’Eve and it is  included in the Journey Holiday Mini. I want to mention that this set is a Host Exclusive product. To learn more about how to host a Make-It Party, please click >HERE<  This set in particular is a large set with thirty one stamps. All the images included are very cute and they are perfect to use for Halloween themed projects.

I also used a background stamp called Widow’s Web, and I simply stamped it with Tangerine Fusion ink over Citrus Cooler cardstock. The little figures were stamped with  Black Licorice ink  onto Whip Cream cardstock.  I added some details with Journey Color Splash watercolor pencils and then cut trimmed the tiny images with scissors.

092917web_hallows1

To create an ombré effect for the the little spooky house image, I inked the stamp with three different tones of purple (Pretty Amethyst, Lavender Fusion and Grape Fusion). Then,  I stamped the sentiment over a pierced oval matted with a larger vellum oval.   I layered all the elements of the card and I added a few other things to complement the cute scene: Journey tape, sequins and Sparkle silk.

By the way, a new fun promotion has started at Fun Stampers Journey, check it out:

FSJ • Trick or Treat Card

Hi there! I am back today to share a card that I made using some Halloween theme products by Fun Stampers Journey. I like when I make cards that can be easily mass produced for friends and family. The stamp set that I used is from the new Journey Holidays Mini that was released last month. Its name is Holidays Celebrations and is one of my favorites because it includes stamps for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years.

081217web_trickortreat

I also used a background stamp called WIdow’s Web, and I simply stamped it onto a Tangerine Fusion cardstock panel with Black Licorice Ink. Then, I adhered this panel a little bit tilted over a Black Licorice base card . I created the focal point by stamping the Trick or Treat stamp over Whip Cream cardstock with Black Licorice Ink, and then I fussy cut the image with scissors.

081217web_trickortreat2

I adhered this piece onto an pierced oval with foam squares, and I adhered the piece over the card. Finally, I embellished the card with Black Licorice Twine Twist, staples, sequins, and Sparkle silk. Quite easy and fun to make.

Please don’t forget that the Fun Stampers Ink Promotion is still  open until the end of the month, so this is a great opportunity to add some more colors to your stash 🙂

FSJ • Happy Halloween Card

Hi there! The Fun Stampers Journey Holidays Mini was recently released, and let me tell you that there are a lot of new products that you are going to love.  The products are just perfect for the coming Fall and Winter celebrations, so even though those dates seems to be far away from now, we are still in time to make a wish list and order some of those fantastic products for our projects. This catalog is available through your FSJ Coach or you can take a peek online by clicking >>>HERE<<.

For today I made a Halloween card using the candy corn image from a fun set called: Halloween Silhouette as well as some other FSJ products. Yyou will find the supplies list at the end of this post 😀

081217web_candycorn

To create the candy corn shapes, I stamped the image twice onto Whip Cream cardstock using Lemon Drop and Tangerine Fusion inks. I stamped a third image to make a template. I cut out the bottom part, middle part of the images  and template with scissors.

mg_DSC_0092

After that, I glued the yellow and orange parts over a piece of Whip Cream cardstock, and I traced the upper part of the candy corn using the template and a pencil. Then, I cut out the candy corn with scissors. I created three candy corn.

mg_DSC_0093

For the background I used the striped Wall stamp but instead of using it as vertical lines I used it as horizontal lines. The sentiment that I used is included in one of the Host Exclusives stamp sets included in the same catalog, and it is called: Hallows Eve.  I simply white embossed it onto a Black Licorice rectangle.

081217web_candycorn2

To finish off my card, I die cut some vellum circles, and used some sequins and Black Licorice as the final touches on it.

Please don’t forget that the Fun Stampers Ink Promotion is open until the end of the month, so this is a great opportunity to add some more colors to your stash 🙂
