FSJ Stamp of the Month: Natural Dreamer

The new Fun Stampers Journey Stamp of The Month is called Natural Dreamer and it showcases pretty whimsy images that are just perfect to create fabulous projects. So, today I am sharing a card that I created with this set:


I began by stamping a Lace background image over a Watermelon Fusion cardstock panel with Sweet Berry True Color Fusion ink. Then, I adhered the panel over a Sweet Berry folded card.

The focal point was created by Stamping the image over a Whip Cream circle with Sweet Berry True Color Fusion ink. Then, I white-embossed a second image over vellum. After that, I placed the embossed image onto the Sweet Berry image a bit off center to create a shadow effect. With the image on the right place, I made some pencil marks so I could die cut the vellum into a circle slightly bigger than the one below. I adhered the two circles together with a few glue dots (placing them where they were not going to be noticeable).

The rest of the card was simple: a white-embossed sentiment over a Black Licorice strip and matted with a gold strip, Gold Fashion pearls, a heart shaped clip and some silk.

FSJ Stamp of the Month: Fresh Start

April has just begun, so that means a brand new Fun Stampers Journey Stamp of the Month has just been released. This new stamp set is called Fresh Start. I love that this set features a bunch of flower images that are perfect to color using any of your favorite techniques. The sentiments included are also beautiful and just right for Spring.


For this card, I used Liquid Colors (Lemon Drop, Limeade Splash, Orange Creamsicle, and Sweet Pear) to create a fun background over a Whip Cream  Panel. I adhered this panel onto a Lemon Drop folded card. After that, I stamped the images with Black Licorice ink over Whip Cream  cardstock. I used a brush to color the images with Liquid Colors as well, and then I fussy cut the shapes with scissors.

Next, I adhered a piece of polka dot washi tape over a Whip Cream  long strip of cardstock , and I trimmed one of the ends to make it look like a long banner. I also die cut a hollow circle from Lemon Drop cardstock, and I used it as the frame for my bunch of flowers.

Last, I white-embossed a sentiment over Black Licorice cardstock, and I die cut it into a circle and I adhered it onto the card using foam squares. To finish up this card I added some sequins and glitter gems. I loved the color combination I used, so here you have it:

FSJ SOTM • Some Hearts Understand…

Hey friends, months are flying and before March ends, I want to share another card that I made using the FSJ Stamp of the Month of March: Good Places.

This is a layered card using a River Stone folded card, a Tin Pail cardstcok panel, a Pool Play rectangle and a strip of Whip Cream Sparkle washi tape as the base for the main components of the card. The focal point of this card wast the pretty windmill that I stamped with Rustic Rose ink over Whip Cream cardstcok. Then I die cut it with its matching die.

I also used the Bunch of Hearts die to create a Fresh Sage rectangle and then, I adhered it over a Whip Creamrectangle. I stamped the sentiment with Black Licorice Ink over a piece of Whip Cream cardstcok and then I die cut it into a heart shape. I arranged and I adhered the pieces over the card front using glue dots and foam squares. Last, but not least, I included a Heart paper clip and Fresh Sage tiny bow and some Sweet Candy Drops. Quick and easy as you can see 🙂

Next week we are starting a new month, so that means a new SOTM will be released!!! Please stay tuned for that, a beautiful set and lots of inspiration will be shared though out the month.

FSJ SOTM • We Rise Up By Lifting Others

Hello, hello! I have a quick post today just to share another idea of a card using the Fun Stampers Journey Stamp of the Month: Good Places.

For this card, I chose to make a mixed background using some paper scraps and a soft tones color combo. I used a piece of gingham printed paper from the Good Life Prints collection along with a couple of Banana Cream and Tin Pail rectangles. I embossed the Tin Pail rectangle with the Tiny Dots embossing folder just to add a bit of texture. I adhered those pieces over a Whip Cream folded card, and I also added a border detail (Tin Pail cardstock + Pocket Trims Die Set).

Using Black Licorice ink, I stamped the sentiment over a tag shape (Whip Cream cardstock + Special Day Tags die set) . Then, I stamped the windmill on Tin Pail Cardstock with Chambray Shirt ink, and die cut it with its matching die. Next, I white embossed the heart image and die cut it as well. After that, I arranged the tag, windmill and heart over the card, and I adhered them using glue dots and foam squares. Last but not least, I embellished the card with some pearls and some rhinestones.

FSJ Stamp of the Month: Good Places

Good Places is the name of the current Stamp of the Month by Fun Stampers Journey. I have a card that I made with it and I want to share with you, take a look:

The set is so pretty and includes images like windmills, a tulip, wooden shoes and some sentiments. For this particular card I created a background made of different colors of cardstock: Pineapple Smoothie, Haystack, Rustic Rose and Peaches & Cream. I created different sizes of rectangles and arranged them over a Whip Cream folded card. Then I used the Green House die to cut a label from Whip Cream cardstock which I used to stamp the sentiment with Black Licorice ink.

After that, I stamped the windmill images over Whip Cream cardstock with Pomegranate Splash ink and I die cut it with its matching die (Matching dies are sold separately) . I also white-embossed the wooden shoes overPeaches & Cream cardstock and die cut it as well. I arranged them over the label and adhered them using foam squares. To finish up this card, I only used a few Sweet Candy Drops and presto!

If you like the color combo I used, here you have it:

Going Places Stamp SetBlack Licorice inkSweet Candy Drops

Sending You Sunshine Card

The Fun Stampers Journey Stamp of the Month of February was just released last week and this great set is called Orange Blossoms. So today I am sharing a card that I made with it along with a few other FSJ products.

The cluster of oranges is the main image and I have to say that it is a quite fun image, perfect for any coloring technique, although for this card I chose to keep the image black and white contrasting with background. The background was made with Liquid Colors, a brayer and the Gel Press. The FSJ Gel Press is a fun tool that allows you to create unique backgrounds using inks, acrylics, or liquid colors. This time I used Lemon Drop, Orange Creamsicle and Rich Coral to create a fun mix of colors.

I know it is difficult to see, since my pictures are a bit grainy due to the lack of light when I took them, but I used the Bloom Wall Stencil along with Journey Gel Medium to create a subtle glossy patterned layer over the background.

The sentiment was simply white-embossed over a piece of Black Licorice cardstock. Then I paired the strip with a piece of Pop of Color washi tape and Journey Twine Licorice Twist. As the final touches a few Rainbow Drops were just perfect to complete my card.

I would love to point out that the Stamp of the Month is a subscription and by joining this club you will have some great benefits, like special deals and savings at the Spellbinders/FSJ store. For more details please click >>>HERE<<<
