FSJ • Autumn Colors Layout

Hello there! Today I am sharing a page that I made to document a late Autumn day that my husband and I spent together at the botanic garden. I always have loved the colors of this season, so I made a 8.5 x 11 page  to showcase one of my favorites pictures of that day using several wonderful  Fun Stampers Journey products.

I used a sheet of  Oatmeal Cookie cardstock  as the page base.  I used the Tag Set to die cut some shapes  from Rock CandyPumpkin Bread and Pomegranate Splash cardstock colors which were also stamped with different backgrounds (Playful LeavesGrid PaperColor Me Fall). Additionally, I die cut a couple of tags from a sheet of patterned paper that belongs to the Through The Year prints collection. All those tags were arranged around the picture to create a kind of frame/background.

I complemented the page with the Pretty Leaves Die Set. These leaves are beautiful and you can use them as the perfect embellishments for any of your Fall projects. The word Autumn belong to a stamp set called Harvest Wreath, and the word “colors” were die cut using the Journey Serifs steel rule die. I used small pieces of foam squares to add dimension to each of the letters. 

I added some final details like a wood leaf, Gold Friendship Sequins, Journey tape, a partial Border Essential at the very top, and a strip of embossed Pumpkin Bread cardstock. 

Please remember that for more ideas and inspiration,  be sure to visit the Fun Stampers Journey Blog,  Facebook page,  Instagram and Pinterest.

Well, that’s all from me today. I´ll be back soon to share another project. Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful crafty week!

FSJ • Happy Harvest 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!

I used the Chasing Seasons embossing folder, a Pineapple Smoothie cardstock panel,  and Whip Cream ink to create the background.  The squirrel image was stamped with Pumpkin Bread and Hazelnut Blend ink over Whip Cream cardstock and then die cut with its matching die. I made a small rectangle and matted with Vellum paper as the base for the main image. I added some details to it: Gift twine and Pop of Color tape.  I also added a Green Olive border underneath the rectangle affixed with Gold staples. 

The sentiment was simply white embossed over a Pumpkin Bread 1.25″ circle and to finish up this card, I splattered some Dark Roast and Gold silks and I adhered some sequins.

FSJ • Merry Christmas Card

Hello there! Time is flying and honestly I am a bit behind doing my Christmas projects so today I am going to start sharing one card that I created using a fun Fun Stampers Journey set called Nutcracker Suite. Well, before I continue, I want to point out that recently Fun Stampers Journey and Spellbinder have joined forces and now all their amazing products can be purchased through their >>>store <<< So please be sure to visit it! 😉

I started my card by creating a simple background using a large dowel dauber and Rustic Rose Ink. I loaded the dauber with ink directly from the pad, and tapped it over the Whip Cream cardstock panel to create a pattern.  After that, I trimmed a bit the panel and adhered it over a Watermelon Fusion cardstock folded card.

After that,  I stamped the nutcracker ballerina and  die cut it with its matching die.  Then, I colored the image with Color Burst color Pencils.  I also die cut the stitched rectangle from Whip Cream cardstock and a couple of Branches from Silver Mirror cardstock.

I layered the branches, the stitched rectangle, plus the ballerina over the base card  and then, I complemented the card with a sentiment, some stickers and rhinestones.

FSJ • Choose to Be Grateful + 10K Celebration Challenge

Hi there! Today I am sharing a card that I created using a cute stamp set from the Journey Holidays mini catalog by FSJ. This set is called Thankful Friends and I really like the little fox included in it.

102218web_chooseto

I began by creating the main image and sentiment. To achieve the subtle ombré effect of the image, I inked it with three colors: Citrus Cooler, Tangerine Fusion and a bit of Pumpkin Bread, and then,  I die cut it with its matching die. Next, I stamped the hat and scarf with Blue Lagoon True Color Fusion Ink over a piece of  Cool Pool cardstock; I fussy cut the stamped images with scissors, and adhered them over the fox.

102218web_choosetobe2

I also stamped the sentiment with Hazelnut Blend True Color Fusion ink and die cut with its matching die as well. After that, I  adhered them over a Whip Cream hexagon shape with foam squares.

For this card, I used a Blue Lagoon base card, and a Pineapple Smoothie rectangle. This rectangle was embossed with the Tiny Dots embossing folder and then I rubbed the Whip Cream pigment ink pad over, to enhanced the dots. Additionally, I used a Pool Play Sparkle tape and Gift Twine.

I adhered the hexagon onto the card with foam squares and I adhered a few Fashion Silver pearls here and there. Here you have the color combo I used for this card:

FSJ • Have a Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween! Just really quick today to share a Halloween card using a Fun Stampers Journey AT stamp set called Happy Pumpkin. Take a look:

102918web_HappyHalloweenok

The layout for this card is simple. I used a Black Licorice base card, and a Cool Pool Tag. I added Journey tape and I pierced a Zig Zag using the new Basics Piercing template.  The pumpkin was simply stamped with Black Licorice ink and colored with Liquid Colors.

102918web_HappyHalloween2

The sentiment was white-embossed over a piece of Black Licorice cardstock and then, I die cut it with its matching die. Sentiment and image were adhered onto the card with foam squares.

As the final touches I used a couple of Spooky Eve Stickers, sequins, a mini paper clip and of course some Silk splatters.

FSJ • Thankful for You

A couple weeks ago I started my Fall crafting,  so today I am sharing one of those projects.  I used one pretty stamp set called: Thankful Friends among other great Fun Stampers Journey products:

102218web_thankful2

This set includes two solid critter stamps (a squirrel and a fox) that I love because you can create an ombré effect over the image. I used two colors to do so, Pumpkin Bread and Hazelnut Blend. This is quite an easy technique that with a bit of practice can be mastered.  I also stamped a scarf for the cute squirrel, using Green Olive ink over Whip Cream cardstock. Additionally, I stamped  the hot cocoa cup with Candy Apple ink and a sentiment over a circle shape.

102218web_thankful1

I die cut a couple of  Pretty Leaves from Tangerine Fusion and Green Olive cardstock. I paired them with Simply Gold tape over a strip of Haystack cardstock. Then I added Gift twine, silk splatters, gold sequins and Gold Fashion pearls.

The Block Party promotion at Fun Stampers Journey is about to come to an end. Right now, all the acrylic blocks have a 20% discount. So hurry, you still have a couple of days to get them!

FSJ • Monsters Layout

Happy Friday, friends! I am back to share a page that I created of my little furry Shelby.  Shelby loves new toys, and  I loved the little stuffed purple monster we got for her.  She plays gently with them in the beginning until she ends up making a hole and taking out the white stuffing, little by little. We always find white balls all over the house… so before that happened to this cute monster, I had to take a picture of my Shelby with it.

102218web_monsters

I made the background of this page the same way I made the background of the card I recently posted. I placed the Polka Dot Stencil over a 12 x 12 Whip Cream cardstock. Then, I inked the small dauber directly onto the ink pad, and I tapped it over the stencil in two or three of the stencil  holes. That is why the circle marks look uneven… I love how they look. I used the Chevron and Heart Wall stencils over two different colors of cardstock to create  a couple of rectangles that were used behind the picture.

102218web_monsters2

The long Cocoa Powder cardstock banner was made with the Tiny Dots embossing folder and inked with Whip Cream pigment ink.  I added some border details using the new Border Essentials and Pocket Trims die sets. I thought the image included in the Eyes On You stamp set was just perfect to include it in this page. So I stamped the image with Black Licorice ink and then, I colored it with Journey Burst Color Pencils using colors similar to Shelby’s monster.

102218web_monsters3

For the title I used the Marquee type and its matching die set.    I added a few buttons and some of the Monster Eyes stickers. Of course I had to include some sequins, a tiny wooden heart, a heart shaped clip,  and at the end I decided to add some sticthes. I still have to include the journaling, but that one it will be done later with my computer and printer.
