Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope you all enjoy this day with your family and friends! I have a quick post today just to share a clean and simple Valentines card using a pretty Fun Stampers Journey AT set called Love Arrow, take a look:
I stamped the heart over a Whip Cream panel using Watermelon Fusion and Sweet Berry inks to create a subtle ombré effect. Additionally, before stamping the image over the panel, I inked the Grid Paper stamp with Sweet Berry ink and I transferred the image onto the solid heart (Kissing techinique). I honestly wanted the grid to be a bit more noticeable but it ended up being a bit too soft in my opinion.
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!
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?
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.
Coffee and tea are always part of my creative process, specially on cold days and when I am making my cards late at night! So today I want to share a card that I created using the stamp set included in the Fun Stampers Journey November Bloom Box Kit which is called Cup of Tea.
This set includes a couple of cute tea pots and cups, as well as some sentiments and other pretty images. So, using one of the tiny images, I created a simple background with Sweet Berry ink over a Watermelon Fusion cardstock panel. I die cut a circle window on that panel and I also used a larger pierced circle around the window. I matted the panel with a Whip Cream panel, and I adhered the panel over a Blue Lagoon folded card.
So, since the Fall|Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is going on right now, I am linking this card to join the fun there.

Well, that’s all from me today. I´ll be back soon to share another project. Thanks for stopping by Have a wonderful crafty weekend!
It’s hard to believe that the month of December is about to begin, so I think today is a good idea to start sharing with you one of the Christmas cards that I have made so far using Fun Stampers Journey products. This card was made using a nice stamp set called Holiday Joy along with the Branch & Cone die set.
I began this card by making the background. I know is a bit hard to see but I used a Fresh Sage cardstock panel, and using a small dauber dowel and Whip Cream ink, I created a bokeh effect. It is actually a ver subtle effect that lightens the color underneath and makes it softer and uneven. It is really pretty in real life! Once the background panel was completly dried, I Gold-embossed the sentiment. I adhered the panel over a Oatmeal Cookie cardstock panel and then, onto a Fresh Forest folded card.
Hello, hello! Today I just wanted to wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving with your family and friends. We will be celebrating this day with some good friends at their house, so I am very excited to spend time with them, eat some delicious food and since we don’t see them very often, catch up with them. Anyway, I also have a card that I made using a fabulous Fun Stampers Journey stamp set called All Year Long. This also has a matching die set which makes cutting those cute stamps so easy!
