FSJ • Bloom This Way • Love Bug Card

Fun Stampers Journey has recently released the new Bloom This Way mini catalog which includes lots of new products perfect for the upcoming important festivities on our calendars!

Today I am sharing a card that I created using a super cute Host Exclusive stamp set  called Bug Love and its matching die set. Take a look:

To create my card, I stamped a Watermelon Fusion panel  using Black Licorice ink and a background stamp called Graduated Dots. I adhered this panel onto a Black Licorice card base.

I stamped the pretty lady bug image and sentiment over Whip Cream cardstock with Black Licorice Ink. I colored the bug with Candy Apple and River Stone Liquid Colors and I die cut both shapes with their matching dies. After that, I added Journey Glaze details and I let them dry.

I also die cut two hearts from Bubble Gum cardstock and a different heart from  Sweet Berry cardstock to create a base of layers underneath the sentiment and lady bug. I finished up m card with Journey tape, Sparkle silk and some yummy heart shaped dots.

One of the advantages of hosting a Fun Stampers party is, besides spending time with your friends creating,  you have the opportunity to purchase some exclusive items like the Bug Love 🙂 If you are curious about how to host a party and get to know more about the fabulous Fun Stampers products, please be sure to visit their website and search for a coach in your area.

The promotion this month at Fun Stampers Journey is called: Spruce your Space, and it is all about getting organized!

Happy New Year, friends! What a better way to start the year than with a fresh release by Fun Stampers Journey! The new Bloom This Way mini catalog is full of wonderful products and currently lots of inspirations are being shared on Facebook and the FSJ Blog.

Today I am sharing a card that I created using a pretty stamp set named Magical Unicorn along with some of the papers from the Birthday Pop Prints pack.

I used one of the prints to create a panel that I adhered over a card base. Then, I used some other small prints rectangles, and a pierced oval to create some layers over the card.


The images and sentiment were stamped with Black Licorice ink over Whip Cream card stock. I colored some details of the unicorn and the tiny hearts with the Journey Burst Color Pencils and then, I die cut the stamped images with their matching dies. I applied Journey Glaze and Sparkle cuts over the images and sentiment, and I let them dry.

To finish up this card, I simply layered the images over the card using foam squares to give the elements extra dimension.

FSJ • Happy New Year + 5 Faves Cards & Products

The year is almost over, and by now we all should have a list or at least, a tentative list of  resolutions for the upcoming year, right? Well, mine is a short list that of course, includes sharing projects more often here on my blog. 2017 was a busy year for our family, so between two jobs, having the task of selling our old house, finding a new one, and moving in, was challenging to me. On the good note, the 2017 resolutions “selling the house” and “buying a house”  have a  big check mark on the side! I can not complain, everything worked perfect for us.

Anyways,  today I am sharing a card that I made for New Years. I have to say that using patterned papers can always save you a lot of time, specially if you are short of time. I used one of the prints from the Through the Year prints pack, an with one of these 12 x 12 sheets you can make as eight backgrounds for a card like mine below:

122917web_happynewyear

The focal point was simply stamped with Black Licorice Ink over a Whip Cream small panel. I put some Journey Glaze over the words and glasses of Champagne. While the Journey glaze was still wet, I added some Silver Shavings over the glasses just to make them shine, and they actually look like tiny pretty bubbles 😉

122917web_happynewyear2

I complemented the background with strips of different kinds of Journey tape, some mirror gold stars, silk and some stars that I cut out from the Star Struck  strip. That was it!

To end this year and to share again with you, I chose five card that are my 2017 favorites. Please click on them if you want to see more details about them:

FSJ • Believe Card

The holidays are around the corner, and this is a great time to do a little bit of everything: planning, shopping, wrapping presents, cooking, baking, and why not?… create some cards 🙂 Today I am sharing a Christmas card, using some Fun Stampers Journey products, take a look:

120617web_Believe

I used two of my favorites stamp sets suited for this season: Poinsettia Burst and Holiday Script. These two sets have a matching die set, which makes crafting easier. I used one of the papers that belong to Christmas Cheer Prints pack as the background panel. That specific print was my starting point to select the cardstock and ink colors.

120617web_Believe2

I layered a piece of vellum, and a pierced rectangle on top of the background panel and then I simply layered two stamped poinsettias, a gold-embossed sentiment, and another pretty foliage element from the Timeless Foliage steel rule.  Last, I complemented the card with some loops of Gold thread, a few rainbow drops, Journey tape and staples.

Today I also want to share the new promotion that Fun Stampers Journey just launched:

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:
112317web_thankscard
 
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!”
