New FSJ Collection: Kindness Matters

I love when new products are about to be released and I have the chance to share a bit about them. At Fun Stampers Journey, coming on January 10th a new collection called Kindness Matters will be released. So today, I am sharing a card that features one of the new stamp sets and the stencil included in the collection.

The stamp set is called Kindness is Cool and it features a cute koala among other pretty images and sentiments. I loved coloring the koala with Color Burst Color Pencils and adding its cool shades. The background was created with the Cane Wave stencil and Liquid Colors (which are one of my favorite products to create backgrounds).

Last but not least, I complemented the card with a sentiment, some Rainbow Hearts, washi tape and a few Cut Rhinestones.

>>>Kindness Matters Project Kit<<<

All new single products will be available for puchase as of January the 20th but the GOOD NEWS is that you can get some of the new products earlier if you buy it the Kit, take a look:

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…

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!

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:


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.


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 • Planner Pages • Make Your Mark Promotion

Hello friends! The Fun Stampers Journey Make your Mark promotion just started last week and this is a great chance to get some of this fabulous products that were created specially for your planner.


Creating your planner pages can be a lot of fun. You can use as much product as you wish: simple or elaborated, it doesn’t really matter. The idea is that you make them fun! Plan ahead of time, make some notes here and there, and work around the events and  activities that you have already planned.


For my pages I knew we were going to have  my son’s birthday, so I prepared some of the elements of the pages ahead of time, and stamped and used the Journey tape here and there, and I also planned my days a little bit.


Of course I knew we were going to have some pictures that day, so I left a space for it. The planner products are very versatile and combining them with some of the regular stamps can be such a great opportunity to take advantage of the products that you already have.

Make Your Mark Social Share (3)

Anyway, please be sure to stop by the FSJ store and see more details about this promotion, make your wish list and contact your Journey coach.

FSJ • Happy Halloween Card

Hi there! The Fun Stampers Journey Holidays Mini was recently released, and let me tell you that there are a lot of new products that you are going to love.  The products are just perfect for the coming Fall and Winter celebrations, so even though those dates seems to be far away from now, we are still in time to make a wish list and order some of those fantastic products for our projects. This catalog is available through your FSJ Coach or you can take a peek online by clicking >>>HERE<<.

For today I made a Halloween card using the candy corn image from a fun set called: Halloween Silhouette as well as some other FSJ products. Yyou will find the supplies list at the end of this post 😀


To create the candy corn shapes, I stamped the image twice onto Whip Cream cardstock using Lemon Drop and Tangerine Fusion inks. I stamped a third image to make a template. I cut out the bottom part, middle part of the images  and template with scissors.


After that, I glued the yellow and orange parts over a piece of Whip Cream cardstock, and I traced the upper part of the candy corn using the template and a pencil. Then, I cut out the candy corn with scissors. I created three candy corn.


For the background I used the striped Wall stamp but instead of using it as vertical lines I used it as horizontal lines. The sentiment that I used is included in one of the Host Exclusives stamp sets included in the same catalog, and it is called: Hallows Eve.  I simply white embossed it onto a Black Licorice rectangle.


To finish off my card, I die cut some vellum circles, and used some sequins and Black Licorice as the final touches on it.

Please don’t forget that the Fun Stampers Ink Promotion is open until the end of the month, so this is a great opportunity to add some more colors to your stash 🙂

FSJ • December Planner Pages

I have been planning a little bit ahead for the coming Winter break just because we will spend some of those days visiting good friends in Florida, so I prepared a couple of pages for that specific week. I decorated these pages more than normal, thinking that maybe I can use some of the components  as part of a Christmas scrapbooking layout, that I will be making after the Holidays.


To begin, I partially covered the days of the week on the left with card stock, just to make them different, and I stamped a few images here and there. I also adhered a border over the rings side.  As you can see, I haven’t finished writing everything because I am still in the planning stage of the activities with our friends 🙂 The planner that I am using today is a size A5, which is bigger with lots of space for your notes.


Between the two pages of the week, I included and acetate page, which was layered with a Holiday prints panel and a Notebook page. I embellished that side with a stamped image, a paper clip and sequins.  If I need more space for a list or notes, I can always use the back of the printed paper to add another notebook page 🙂


The right side shows the Fun Sleeve shape.  I love this die template. You can embellish it as you wish and use it to keep important little things there. I am going to use it to hold the tickets of the places that we are going to visit.


Just by  adding small details like the paper clip and scalloped edge, you can enhance your projects, it is fun and sometimes paper scraps work perfectly for this purpose.


Behind the sleeve, I included another partial page that holds a photo frame. This is another of my favorites die templates!  I decorated it  with a few die cut elements, drops and sequins. Making you planner pages can be so much fun! 🙂


Currently  Fun Stampers Journey is having a promotion on planners and products now through December 31st.  The have put together bundles,  either size personal or the A5 planner (like the one I am showing today).  Please be sure to visit the FSJ store to see the amazing  bundles by clicking on the image below:
