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:
I have always loved participating in card challenges and I think they are a great way to keep those creative juices flowing! Well, today I am sharing a card that I made to participate in the current CASE this Sketch challenge.
One of the things I like about this challenge is the simplicity of their sketches. You can either build your card with layers and details or create a clean and simple card, it is up to you! So I thought this sketch was just right to showcase a pretty patterned paper that belongs to the Playful Printscollection by Fun Stampers Journey. I used both sides of the paper to create the diagonal sections of the card and I adhered them onto a Fresh Sage folded card.
Hello, hello! I am back today just to share another card that I made using the pretty Stamp of the Month by Fun Stampers Journey, and to announce the name of the winner of this wonderful stamp set.
I made a simple background by stamping a lock image over a Cool Pool panel with Limeade Splash ink. I adhered the panel onto a Limeade Splash folded card. The wings were white embossed on Watermelon Fusion cardstock and then, die cut with its matching die.
I stamped the sentiment over a Whip Cream circle with Black Licorice ink. The key wast stamped with Black Licorice ink and die cut with its matching die. I arranged the elements over the card, and added some final touches: a heart shaped gem, Journey tape and Journey Glaze details.

This card features a background created with strokes of Liquid Colors, and a stamped keys pattern using Black Licorice ink.

Christmas always bring memories to my mind of my mom, my dad, my siblings and my childhood dreams back then.

Well, that’s all from me today. I´ll be back soon to share another project. Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful crafty week
Don’t you like it when you can create a card that is easy to duplicate? I love when I can have my little assembly line and save some time when making several cards at a time. Today I am sharing a card that might work that way. I made it using a few Fun Stamper Journey products, so I hope you get some inspiration from me. Take a look:
Here you have the sketch for this card.Remember that sketches are versatile and you can always give them your personal spin!

It’s that time of the year when days start being shorter and seems the hours are not enough because, there is a lot of things to do and accomplish before the end of the year. Well, besides other things I have been trying to do, I have been working hard to share a bit more cards this month. So today I have another wintery card! This one showcases a pretty Fun Stampers Journey stamp set called Stay Cozy.
I used an embossing folder called Cozy Knit to emboss a Cool Pool cardstock panel and then, I adhered it over a Cranberry Bliss cardstock folded card. After that I die cut two circles. One using the Circles Around die set and a b/w plaid print from the Cozy Prints paper pack. The other pierced circle was die cut using the Journey Circles die set and Whip Cream cardstock. I want to point out that the circles from both of these sets are different so you can have more circle size options. I also used a strip of red plaid print and a piece of Silver Sparkle Washi Tape to create a few layers over the card, alternating the elements: tape, plaid circle, paper strip, pierced circle.
It’s cold outside, indeed! Low temperatures make me want to stay home all day wearing my pjs and just play in my craft room! Well, since I have been doing some extra holidays cards here and there, today I want to share another one, featuring a cute stamp set by Fun Stampers Journey called It’s Cold Outside.
The card itself is quite simple. The background was made using the Tiny Dots embossing folder over a Whip Cream cardstock panel. Then, I rounded the four corners and adhered it over a Tin Pail folded card.
Sometimes when creating, and you are not pretty sure how to tackle a project, simplicity can make wonders. So, inspired by my talented friend Kim Kesti and this amazing card of hers, I created a card, using the same Fun Stampers Journey stamp set and the same design concept, take a look:
Rather than using very bright colors like Kim’s card, I went for the route of more traditional colors. The pretty set that we used is called Deck the Halls and the images included in it are perfect to create a fireplace Christmas scene. I began my card by stamping the fireplace, wreath and sentiment with Black Licorice ink over a Whip Cream panel. I matted the panel with one Cozy Prints Printed Paper rectangle, and I adhered the panel over a Kiwi Slice folded card.
The concept design of pop of color is simply genius. I stamped the bow, stocking and presents with Black Licorice ink over different colors of cardstock (Chambray Shirt, Candy Apple, Limeade Splash. Then, I fussy cut those images and adhered them onto the card front. I used foam tape to add dimension to some of those elements. To finish up this card, I added a Journey Glaze to the sentiment and I put a few Party Burst dots over the wreath. Easy, pretty and fun.
