FSJ Concept Designers Gel Press Print Swap

The FSJ Concept Designers have been having a little fun together (well, a LOT of fun) and today we want to show you what we’ve been working on! We had ourselves a little print swap. The six of us divided up into pairs. Three of the designers created an 8.5×11″ print on the Journey Gel Press. Then they cut their print in half and sent half to their partner. Each partner created a card using that print, and today we’re going to share what we’ve created! It was a really fun swap and I can’t wait to see all three of the prints, and how each designer used their print on a project!
I was one of the designers that made an 8.5×11″ print, and I created it by using warm acrylic paint tones  (I was thinking of the Fall season ), with a pop of white. I really liked how it turned out ! Besides the acrylic paints, I used stencils and modeling paste. This is my half:

 I mailed the other half of the print to my partner for the swap who is Michelle, and  I have created this card with my half:

Since the colors were warm, I thought about making a thank you card for for the Fall season. I used the Journey Gel Press print to make a background for the card, and I paired it with a thank you sentiment from a set called: Summer Garden.  I also used one Foiled Frame, some leaves and a zig-zag border.

To finish up my card I used some Gold Fashion dots and Gold ThreadSo now, if you haven’t visited Michelle yet, please click here to see what she has come up with her half! 
Then, hop around to the rest of the teams, and see the prints they created, plus how they each used those prints! 
 
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Enjoy the rest of the swap stops, and don’t forget to pin everyone’s projects for inspiration later on!”

FSJ • Happy Thanksgiving

Hello friends! Today I am sharing a card that I created to wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving. This card features wonderful products from the Fun Stampers Journey Holidays catalog. Take a look:

112317web_happythanksg

I used one of the paper prints from the Fall Fest Prints as the background. Then I stamped some of the leaves from the Hello Fall stamp set using different colors of ink. I die cut those images with their matching dies.

112317web_happythanksg2

I created the sentiment with the Happy Merry stamp set, and I want to point out that this is one of the sets you need to have for the holiday season. It has lots of sentiments that can be combined to make sentiments from Halloween to New Years. Anyway,  once I have stamped it, I cut it into a strip and I matted it with a strip of Kraft cardstock.  Then, I layered the leaves and sentiment over the card, and I used s few Rainbow Drops and Gold Thread to complete my card.

Well, that’s all from me for today.  I hope you enjoy this special day spending time with all your loved ones and eating lots of yummy food!

Thanks for stopping by:)  I’ll be back soon to share another project!

FSJ • Thanks Card + Video

Hello friends. Autumn is my favorite season of the year.  I like the colors of the surroundings,  and I even  like the type of weather, not so warm, not so cold, just perfect.  Anyways, today I am back to share a Fall themed card featuring lots of Fun Stamper Journey products along with a fun technique.

I am not going to describe how I created this card on this post, since I made a short video showing all the steps from start to finish,  as well as the fun stamping technique that I used. Check it out:

Here is another close up of my card, where you can see details of the technique 😀

I liked how this card turned out a lot. The leaves look really pretty in real life, and it is so easy to create!

FSJ • Have Courage Card

Hello friends, just a quick post to share another card that I made for the Fun Stampers Journey Be Brave Drive.   The goal of this drive is to collect cards that will be sent to patients and caregivers in need through a  Breast Cancer non-profit organization. I just found out that thanks to the help of many crafters around the country, Fun Stampers Journey reached their goal of getting over 500 cards, yay! I am so happy for that!

Anyway,  I recently sent this card that features a set called called Be  Brave and I combined it with a sentiment from another set named Take Action .

102317web_havecourage1

The design of this card is quite simple: a large panel and some fun layers. I created a stamped panel and then I adhered it over a base card. After that,  I made a few more elements that worked as the layers and focal point: a vellum pierced circle, the stamped ribbon image, and a sentiment that I enhanced with Journey Glaze (one of my favorite products).

102317web_havecourage2

Finally, I embellished my card with some decorative tape, staples, twine and silk. Easy, pretty and for a good cause.  I hope this card  brightens up  somebody’s day.

FSJ • Thank You Card

One of the Fun Stampers Journey Products that I can never get tired of using are the Liquid Colors. Liquid Colors are dye based and they are available in twelve different colors.

101317web_thankyoucard1

The colors are vibrant and can be used to create backgrounds, or to color images as well. For this card I payed with some of the colors,  and I used a stencil too.  I like to create several backgrounds at the time, since I know I can use them later for other projects.

101317web_thankyoucard2

The stamp set that I used is called Dahlia Burst  with its matching dies.  In the beginning I thought of leaving the flowers plain white, but in the end I added a hint of color using my Journey Color Burst color pencils to kind of integrate them more into the background.

101317web_thankyoucard3

I matted the background panel with white cardstock and stitches along the edge. I adhered the stitched panel to a base card. I layered the flowers and leaves, and adhered them with Journey squares and dots. I complemented the cluster with a white-embossed sentiment, sparkle cuts, silk and  a few sequins.  This card was so much fun to make!

World Cardmaking Day • Be Brave Challenge

Hello friends! Happy World Cardmaking Day!
Today I am sharing a card that I created to celebrate and it is also combined with one of the fun challenges that Fun Stampers Journey have put together specially for us. The purpose of today’s challenges is to create cards for the Be Brave Card Drive.    The goal of this drive is to collect cards that will be sent to patients and caregivers in need through a  Breast Cancer non-profit organization.

22221935_10156117075093455_4255466030998061827_n.jpg

I created a card for Challenge #2: Create a card for a caregiver.  I made a Thank You card using  a pretty stamp set called: Be  Brave. I used the ribbon to create a simple background and the little dove as an accent image.

100717web_thankyou

The Thank You sentiment is from another versatile set called: Must Have Sentiments.  I also  used a pierced rectangle, Journey tape, sequins and heart shaped paper clip  as embellishments.

100717web_thankyou2

So I hope you feel inspired to create some cards, participate in one or more of the challenges, send your cards to the Journey Station and be part of a good cause!

FSJ • All Hallows’ Eve Card

Hello friends, I am back today to share a card that I created using some Fun Stampers Journey products.  I want to point out that this time I  used a simple and fun  SplitcoastStamper sketch (SCS664) to create my card.

092917web_hallows2

The stamp set that I used is called Hallows’Eve and it is  included in the Journey Holiday Mini. I want to mention that this set is a Host Exclusive product. To learn more about how to host a Make-It Party, please click >HERE<  This set in particular is a large set with thirty one stamps. All the images included are very cute and they are perfect to use for Halloween themed projects.

I also used a background stamp called Widow’s Web, and I simply stamped it with Tangerine Fusion ink over Citrus Cooler cardstock. The little figures were stamped with  Black Licorice ink  onto Whip Cream cardstock.  I added some details with Journey Color Splash watercolor pencils and then cut trimmed the tiny images with scissors.

092917web_hallows1

To create an ombré effect for the the little spooky house image, I inked the stamp with three different tones of purple (Pretty Amethyst, Lavender Fusion and Grape Fusion). Then,  I stamped the sentiment over a pierced oval matted with a larger vellum oval.   I layered all the elements of the card and I added a few other things to complement the cute scene: Journey tape, sequins and Sparkle silk.

By the way, a new fun promotion has started at Fun Stampers Journey, check it out:
