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.

FSJ Easy Breezy Spring + Sneak Peek

Easy Breezy Spring is the name of the new wonderful collection that Fun Stampers Journey will be releasing today April 26th and of course you are invited to join us for a LIVE Launch Party, from 3 to 5pm Pacific Time.

If you are not familiar with the FSJ Parties, I have to say that they are a lot of fun. FSJ will be presenting the whole new collection and along the show they will have project demos, bundles for sale and GIVEAWAYS! You will find the Launch Party on the FSJ YouTube channel, on the FSJ Facebook page , or on the FSJ store.

So, as part of this event, I am sharing a project that I created with one of the sets included in the collection: Cute Boots, take a look…


For my project, I created a simple but fun background using Lovely Blue Liquid Color and Sparkle Silk. I put a some drops of liquid color over the Gel Press and I spread it with a brush, then I picked up the color with a Whip Cream panel. Additionally, I sprinkled some Sparkle Silk over the blue background. Once the panel was completely dried, I adhered it over a Tin Pail folded card. I want to point out that the Sparkle Silk is one of my favorites products because it gives just the perfect sparkle touch that projects need to make them stand out!

Next, I stamped a base image over Whip Cream  cardstock, and I fussy cut it with scissors. After that, I stamped the image again over different colors of cardstock, and using my scissors I cut details of each color, and then I glued them over the base image. The piecing technique is one of my favorites because it will never disappoint you!


To finish up this card, I stamped the sentiment over Whip Creamcardstock and then I die cut it using a cloud shaped die. I adhered the cloud and main image onto the card using foam square. Simple, simple yet very pretty!

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:

Going Places SSBunch of Hearts Sparkle WT Fun Day PC

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!

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!

You Stole My Heart Card

I can’t believe January is gone and Valentines Day is around the corner. I am not a big celebrator of that day, but I do like to cook or bake something yummy for my husband and sons… Sometimes I give a little something or a card to some of my friends, just a little reminder that they are important to me. How about you? Do you celebrate it?

Well, today I am sharing a card that I create using a cute set by Fun Stampers Journey called: Love Bandit along with some other fun products.

I used Journey Color Burst Pure Color pencils to color this cute image, along with its matching die. I also created a patterned background with the sentiment, using Fresh Sage ink over a Cool Pool cardstock panel.

I adhered the background over a Rock Candy folded card, and then I placed a large Whip Cream stitched circle. I used the circle as the base for the cute bandit. I added a strip of Black Licorice cardstock and a strip of polka dot tape. Above all of that I added the sentiment which was white embossed over a Candy Apple heart shape. To finish up my card I adhered some silver sequins here and there.

FSJ • Love You Card + Sketch

As I said on my last post, I love challenges. Well, my Fun Stampers Journey partner and friend Laura Williams and I decided to challenge ourselves and have some fun creating. Lately, I have been struggling a bit with that mojo that sometimes needs a little push, so we came up with the idea of posting a sketch challenge. I created a fun sketch and we made a Valetines themed card from it. Take a look:

There is no technique or any other requirement but the sketch to create a card. In my case, I kept it simple. I used a Whip Cream panel over a River Stone folded card, and then I adhered a Follow Your Heard Print rectangle to cover the lower half part of the panel. Then, I die cut different sizes of Hearts using Whip Cream, Bubble Gum and Raspberry Berry cardstocks.

I layered the hearts and white-embossed a sentiment over a Black Licorice cardstcok strip. To finish up this card, I used a piece of Silver Sparkle tape, Sparkle silk and some silver sequins. Simple, fun and pretty!

So, you are welcome to grab this sketch and join us. So please don’t be shy, and leave your link in the comments area… we would love to see what you create!

Laura also created a lovely project using a fun technique, and you can see her project by clicking >>>HERE<<<
