FSJ• Love is All You Need

Last year when I went to Mexico to my mom’s house, I found a bunch of slides that my dad took of the family.  I found one of myself with a cat when I was maybe three or four years old. This is one of those pictures that can demonstrate that cats have always been a part of my life 🙂 Anyway, I scanned the slide and printed it out to make a page  with it. The resolution of the picture is not good at all, but I think it is ok for my project. So today I am sharing an 8 x 8 page that I created using several products by Fun Stampers Journey. Check it:

To create this page I began by creating the background. I used the Heart Wall stencil along with PanPastels to create a subtle backgrounds that blends with the white card stock base. After that, I stamped the cute cat images randomly with River Stone ink. I also flicked some Bubble Gum and Silver Silks over it.

I added a  couple of layers of card stock, a border and washi tape, that work as the base of the picture. I adhered this to the page with adhesive and I secure it with a couple of staples on both sides.  I die cut a pierced heart, and I stamped a sentiment with Black Licorice ink.

I want to point out that this sentiment is included in a set called Amazing Day that belongs to the Bloom This Way Mini Catalog (recently released). I added color to the word love with Journey Color Splash Watercolor Pencils . I also applied Journey Glaze over it. I added this heart onto the page with foam squares.

At this point I thought my page was still missing a few more details. So, I added  some punched hearts, a partial stamped border on the top of the page and a complementary sentiment. To finish it off, I embellished it with some dots and rhinestones.

I love creating pages for my albums. This particular one was fun, not just because that page was about my childhood, but because I was able to include many Fun Stampers Journey products that I really like!

The New 2017 Bloom This Way Mini-Catalog is here!

bloomthisway.jpg

Hi there!  I’m happy to be sharing with you another card that I made using products from new Bloom This Way Mini Catalog by Fun Stampers Journey. This catalog is full of cute products perfect for the upcoming  monthly themes: Valentine’s, Easter and Spring.  You can take a look inside the catalog by clicking >>>HERE<<<

My card features the Fry Friends Bundle which is super fun and cute! I stamped the taco and cup images with Black Licorice Ink and then I colored them with Journey Color Splash Watercolor pencils. Then, I die cut them with their matching dies. I applied Journey Gaze onto the colored images and I let them dry.

I used a Candy Apple card base and on top of it, I layered a Rich Sorbets Prints rectangle, a Citrus Cooler paper strip, and a Whip Cream pierced square. Then, I adhered the two colored images with Journey foam squares.

Finally, I added some punched hearts, sequins, staples and silk for the final touches.  Simple yet fun!

MH104-Web-Image

Additionally, there are three ads-on items (you can click on them to see a larger image)…

So today as part of this fabulous release,  I created a card featuring one of the images from the add-on stamp set Marianne’s Flowers…

030516web_hellobeautifulok

I created the background using Dusty Concord Distress ink and a sponge. Then, I splatter water with a small brush, and after it was dried  I adhered the panel over a card base. To create the focal point, I stamped the flower over white card stock with Intense Black Ink (one of my current favorite products) and I colored the image using my Chameleon markers. I love the effect that you can achieve with these markers. You can always use your favorite markers or technique to color these wonderful images 🙂

030516web_hellobeautiful3

After that, I fussy-cut the image with scissors. Then, I white-embossed a sentiment (For You Flowers stamp set) on a black paper strip and I adhered the piece along with some decorative tape over the main panel.  I adhered the flower with foam tape and I embellished the card with some black pearls and gemstones.

030516web_hellobeautiful2

Today’s Card: Have a Beautiful Day

Happy Friday everyone!  One of my favorite stamp sets from the Hero Arts 2016 Catalog is the one that I am featuring today. This pretty set is called You’re So Lovely

022416web_haveabeautiful

What I like the most about this set is that the designs of the flowers and leaves are clean and graphic, which made me feel inspired to create with them.   I chose a two color combination to create a partial background.

022416web_haveabeautiful3

I started by stamping the three flowers over a white panel with Bubble Gum Mid Tone Shadow Ink. Then, I stamped the leaves images several times in between and over the floral images with Soft Olive Shadow Ink. I did not worry about overlapping the images because I knew since the beginning that I was going to create dimensional elements that would cover the overlapped images 😉  To create the dimensional flowers,  I stamped the flowers again on a piece of white card stock, and I die cut them using its matching dies. I also die cut a piece of foam, which  I used to add dimension.

022416web_haveabeautiful2

I adhered the two pieces and I placed them over the panel, covering the previously stamped flower images. To finish this card,  the sentiment was stamped with the new Intense Black ink , the panel adhered over a green card base, and embellished with some yummy sequins that coordinate with the color combo.

Another reason for creating this card using floral motifs was to remind you that there is still time to  participate  in the current Hero Arts challenge 🙂 Please click on the image below to see the details…

RG Make Amazing Happen Card

Hey there! I am back just to share another card that I created with the new Make Amazing Happen Collection by Richard Garay.

012816web_makeamazingB

For this card, I used watercolor paper to create the background. I clear-embossed flowers and leaves images several times over the panel (Amazing Blooms and Make Amazing stamp sets). Then, using  a couple of colors of Gelatos (Faber Castell), water and a brush, I covered the whole panel. At the end I splattered a little bit of Silver Shimmer. I adhered the panel over a card base, and I added stitches along the edge.

012816web_makeamazing3

The sentiment was stamped on white card stock with black ink, and die cut with its matching die.  I adhered it over the front panel with foam squares along with silver thread. I stamped the flower with pink ink, then I added Journey Glaze and Journey Sparkle Cuts over it. Once was dried, I fussy cut the shape and I adhered it with a foam square. I embellish the card with some clear gemstones.

If you haven’t seen all the new Richard Gary Collections, you can take a look in the link below. The new collections will be released in the next few months, so stay tuned 😉

Well, that’s all from me for today, I will be back soon to share another card.
