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 addedJourney Glazeover 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!
This sale includes lots and lots of products that you can get for $1, $2, $3, $5or$10 …. Papers, inks, dies, embellishments…. and much more! Believe me, these are HUGE savings so please jump over to the shop and start filling up your cart!

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 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?
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 new stamp set is amazing, and the images are just perfect to create beautiful cards. I have to point out that this amazing set has a coordinating die set which is an add-on product, and honestly it is worth having!
This card features a background created with strokes of Liquid Colors, and a stamped keys pattern using Black Licorice ink. The wings were stamped over Bubble Gum cardstock and die cut with its matching die. The sentiment was white-embossed over a Black Licorice cardstock strip and adhered over the card with foam squares. Last but not least were silver sequins along with some heart shapes covered with Journey Glaze and Journey Sparkle cuts. Simple yet pretty!

Christmas always bring memories to my mind of my mom, my dad, my siblings and my childhood dreams back then. The nostalgic feeling brings me a chance to create my own happy memories with my family, hoping that when my sons have their own families, they will also make moments that they can treasure in the future, like I do now.
Anyhow, this quick post is also to wish you wonderful time with your loved ones…
I hope this day is blessed with happiness, joy, lots of love and yummy food!
