FSJ • Thanks Card

Hello, Hello! This has been a busy month for me… Among other things,  I have been making some projects for my blog, taking pictures, editing them, etc. So hopefully I will be posting those projects soon.  The card that I am sharing today features an AT set called Zen Leaves… and I just love the graphic pattern of those leaves. Don’t you think they are pretty?

102218web_thanks

I began by creating the background using the Polka Dot Wall stencil, along with a small sponge dauber and Haystack ink. Then, I simply stamped the leaves using Citrus Cooler, Pumpkin bread and Pomegranate Splash inks.  Next, I die cut the leaves with its matching dies.

The sentiment is from a set called Harvest Wreath and it was directly stamped over the background with Black Licorice ink. I arranged the leaves and adhered them with foam squares. After that, I embellished the card with some Gold sequins, some Sea Stones, Dark Roast Silk, and Gift Twine.

I only used two of layers of one of the blooms, so the first layer was stamped with Pineapple Smoothie and Bubblegum inks over a Whip Cream  panel, and then the second layer was stamped with Black Licorice ink.  After that, I simply adhered this panel over a Fresh Sage card base.

090818web_thankyou6

For the flower I used a Host Exclusive die set called Bold Bloom. Before I die cut the layers of the flower I created the lines of the petals on a piece of Whip Cream cardstock by using the the Bubblegum ink pad edge to make some clockwise marks.  After that, I die cut the bloom layers.

Additionally, I inked the edges of the blooms using a sponge dauber. After that, I layered the flower.  I added a Bubblegum cardstock banner and a sentiment from a set called Everyday Script to complement the card.

FSJ • Oh So Happy

The mixed media concept itself can be a little bit intimidating if you are not familiar with the mediums or  simply because you don’t like to get your working area messy (let’s be real: more than normal). Well, maybe it can get a bit messier, but that doesn’t take the fun part away. Once you start, it is hard to stop creating. I have to say that what I really like is that even though you are working on an specific project and you have something in mind, in the process you end up creating more pretty stuff and at the end, nothing is wasted. Since you can create many backgrounds, and even though you don’t use them right away, it will save you time to create another project another day. Anyhow, today I am sharing a card that I created using one of those extra backgrounds that I created a couple weeks ago using some  mixed media products…

080118web_ohsohappy1

The background was created using the Circle Bliss stencil along with Citrus Cooler and Sweet Berry acrylic paints.  I also used Modeling paste, Oatmeal Cookie acrylic paint and the Flower Power stencil, just to add an extra detail over the already pretty background.

080118web_ohsohappy2

To create the flowers, I die cut the Colorful Bloom dies from Oatmeal Cookie cardstock and I stamped the Grid Paper and Lace Background stamps on them with Outrageous Pink ink.  I added a pierced detail, a stitched circle,  a sentiment, cut rhinestones, natural twine and a couple of brush silver staples.

The current promotion at Fun Stampers Journey is  called Prepped to Play and the products on sale are some of the ones that belong to the Mixed Media category. So if you already have some of those products on your wishlist, this  is a good chance to get them 🙂 Please be sure to click on the image below to see the complete list of mixed media products that are for sale this month:

FSJ • Happy Birthday Card

Since the Bloom This Way mini catalog was released, I have been having a a lot of fun creating with some of the great products included in it. If you are curious about this fabulous catalog, please click >>>HERE<<< so you can see it!

Today I am sharing a fun card using one of my favorites sets from this catalog: Story Book Occasions.  So, I chose the little lamb image and I stamped it three times with Black Licorice Ink over a Whip Cream cardstock  panel. To achieve the overlapped images I made a mask with a sticky note.

011018web_lHappyBday

Then, I die cut the panel into a pierced rectangle. I also gave the images a hint of color  with my Color Burst pencils and using a craft knife I cut out the balloons centers to create three mini shaker windows.  I used a little bit of Clear Sparkle Confetti to fill in the tiny windows. I matted the panel with Cool Pool cardstock.

011018web_lHappyBday2

After that, I layered a Spring Filled Print rectangle over a Bubble Gum card base, and adhered the shaker panel on top of it.  Last, I finished up the card with a sentiment, Sparkle silk, Bubble Gum Thread and a Fun Day Elements paper clip.

Please don’t forget that this month’s promotion is still going on:

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:

011018web_lovebug

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.

011018web_lovebug2

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.

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 • October Planner Pages

Hello friends! The Fun Stampers Journey Make your Mark promotion will end very soon.   You still have a few days to get some of these fabulous products that were created specially for your planners.  Be sure to contact one of the Journey Coaches to take advantage of this great promotion.

102517web_planneroctober

So today I am sharing some Halloween planner pages that I created for next week. My two sons are older now, so we don’t  celebrate Halloween at home as we did before, but we still like to decorate and have candy ready for the spooky visitors.

102517web_planneroctober5

For these planner pages I used several stamp sets from the Journey Days Collection as well as some other stamps from the Holidays Mini Catalog. It is fun to mix and match your stamps and use them on other projects besides your cards, and even create some other elements like paper clips.

102517web_planneroctober2

I also created a pouch using the Fun Sleeve die along with Fall Fest Prints, thinking that I can use it to hold some of the pictures I take that day.

102517web_planneroctober4

In addition, I used one photo sleeve to hold a recipe that I love to make every year on this special occasion. I like the idea of maybe using the same sleeve next year 🙂

102517web_planneroctober3

On the following page, since November the 2nd. is the day when “El Día de los Muertos” is celebrated in Mexico, and this is an important tradition, I included a picture of the “altar” that my sister sets in honor of my mom and dad each year.  It is a little reminder for me to light up a candle for them that day.

Make Your Mark Social Share (3)

Anyways, I hope you feel inspired to decorate your planners and if you haven’t tried it before, give it try. It is a fun thing to do! 🙂

Please be sure to stop by the FSJ blog for more inspiration and ideas on using your planner products.
