FSJ’s Kindness Matters Collection is Here!

Kindness Matters is the name of the new collection that Fun Stampers Journey has just released and today, I am delighted to share two cards created with one of my favorite stamp sets from this release: Baby Farm Animals and its coordinating dies.

For my first card, I took advantage of the cute outlined darling images, and I grabbed my Journey Splash Watercolor Pencils to color them. Once the color dried, I die cut them with their matching dies.

I thought a red barn would be a perfect match for these cute creatures, so I die cut a Candy Apple Reversed Banner shape and I cut off two of its corners to create the shape of a traditional barn.

After that, I created the lines with a ruler and a thin marker. Then, to create the barn doors, I simply made two small rectangles and I dragged criss cross lines with my white Journey Burst Color Pencil. I glued those two pieces over a Whip Cream rectangle and adhered the piece over the barn.

I created the little window over the door the same way. I finished up the barn with a piece of Hazelnut Blend cardstock to create the roof over the barn. Quite simple if you ask me, but fun to create.

My second card is a bit simpler than the one above. In this case, I simply stamped the baby animals with Black Licorice True Color Fusion Ink over different colors of cardstock.

I used the grass and cloud die cuts from the Sweet Home Accent die set to create a simple, yet pretty scene for the cute baby animals.

I arranged them over a rectangle cut out of Pool Play cardstock and of course I also included a sentiment. I finished up the card with wiggle eyes for the cute animals and some white pearls here and there.

Anyway, please be sure to visit the FSJ shop and see the whole collection; you can either buy the products individually or you can also buy a Project Kit, which means a great deal!

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.

FSJ • Spread Christmas Cheer

Eventhough we are fast approaching the Holidays celebrations, I think there is still time to create a few more last minute cards. So today I am sharing a card that I created using one FSJ stamp set called Whimsy Trees.

One of the things that I love is creating my own card backgrounds. This time I simply used the three layers of pine tree images along with four different colors of ink: Cool Pool, Limeade Splash, Blue Lagoon and Rich Coral. To obtain crisp images, I re-inked the pads before I started stamping just to be sure my images were going to have a bright even color. After that, I adhered the panel over a Rich Coral folded card.

Then, I stamped the pine tree three times (using different colors) over a Hemstitch Rectangle (Whip Cream cardstock) and of course, I also stamped a sentiment. I adhered the rectangle over a vellum mat and I adhered the panel over the card using foam squares. Finally, I added some enamel stars and Journey Glaze over the sentiment. Super quick and easy last minute card!

FSJ • Stamp of the Month: Penguin Waddle

Hey there! I am beginning this month with a card featuring the Stamp of the Month by Fun Stampers Journey: Penguin Waddle. This cute set includes a bunch of adorable penguins and various sentiments which are great to create winter cards 😉 Take a look:

I began by creating the background using a Catalina Splash Cardstock panel, and I simply rubbed Whip Cream PanPastel over the panel in a circular motion from the center towards the edges to create an ombré effect. Then, I simply matted the panel with Watermelon Fusion Cardstock and adhered the panel over a Pool Play Cardstock folded card. I flicked some Sparkle Silk over the background too.

I die cut the hill from Whip Cream cardstock and adhered it onto the card. Then, I stamped the penguins with Black Licorice True Color Fusion Ink, I colored their feet and beaks with a color pencil, and stamped those cute hats. This set doesn’t have a matching die set, but they are super easy to fussy-cut with your detail scissors. Finally, I white embossed a sentiment and die cut it into a heart shape. I adhered penguins and heart with foam squares and embellish with Fashion Silver pearls, a piece of Silver Sparkle Washi Tape and a Petal Clip.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Quick post today just to wish, that you all have a great time with your loved ones celebrating and creating new memories together on Thanksgiving.

I also want to share a card featuring some of my favorites stamps from the FSJ Holiday collection: Fall Thanks and Happy Harvest. For this card I selected a non-traditional colors combo, take a look…

I used Journey Color Burst color pencils to color the pretty scarecrow and the small images, I added Journey Glaze + Sparkle Cuts details over them to make them shine. Then, I simply fussy-cut the images with scissors.

I also created a pallete of Liquid Colors using a Create-a-Palette pad and then, I stamped the sentiment over Whip Cream cardstock. I die cut the sentiment with its matching die, and after that I arranged all the images over a Whip Cream panel. I embellished the card with a few All the Things Embellishments and adhered the panel over a Sweet Pear folded card.

On another note, Spellbinders + FSJ are currently having their Black Friday Sale, so this is the perfect time for you to get some fabulous products at an amazing price! Please click on the image below to hop over directly to the store…

FSJ • Stamp of the Month: Joyous Bird

Hello, hello ! I am back today to share a project that I created with the brand new Fun Stampers Journey Stamp of the Month! The name of this pretty set is Joyous Bird and it features images perfect to create Christmas cards, tags, etc.

So, using the main image I created this card:

The background was simply created with Lovely Blue Pearl Splash. I applied the color over a large acrylic block and I picked up the color with a Whip Cream cardstock panel, and then I also splashed a bit more to add tiny color dots of. Once the panel was dried, I stamped the sentiment with Black Licorice ink. I also stamped the branch and the dove over Whip Cream cardstock. To color the image I used my Journey Color Burst color pencils. I was actually coloring the tiny details inside and outside of the lines, just to make the colors pop a bit more.

I matted the background panel with Limeade Splash cardstock and then I adhered it over a Candy Apple folded card. After that I adhered the dove and branch with foam squares. Finally, I embellished it with Fashion Silver pearls and of course I applied Journey Glaze details!

FSJ • Stamp of the Month: Friendship Blessing

Hello friends! As you all know, at Fun Stampers Journey we begin the month with a new Stamp of the Month. The name of this new set is  Friendship Blessing and it features wonderful floral images along with some nice sentiments. This is one of those sets that you can use all year round using any of your favorite stamping and coloring techniques.

Here is the card that I created for this release:

I began this card by adhering a plaid paper print rectangle (Good Life Prints) over a Rustic Rose cardstock folded card. I stamped the flower with Rustic Rose ink and the leaves with Green Olive ink. Then, I die cut the images with their matching die cuts. I also die cut a large circle and I stamped the berries image and the sentiment on it. After that, I arranged the stamped images on the left side and adhered them with foam squares.

I adhered the circle over the folded card with foam squares, and then I flicked Sparkle Silk and added some sequins. The stamps are so pretty that even with just using different colors of ink can make your cards look very nice.

Anyway, you will find a lot of wonderful inspiration and more details about the August SOTM over the Spellbinders-FSJ blog, and a great video for you to WATCH.

SB + FSJ • Stay Sassy Card

Hello friends! Quick post today just to share a simple card that I created using a pretty stamp from the Jane Davenport collection by Spellbinders. This clear stamp is called Girl Group and it is perfect to color using your favorite coloring technique, take a look:

I began by stamping the image with Black Licorice True Color Fusion Ink over Whip Cream Cardstock, and then I colored the faces using the Silky SkinColor Stick Gel Crayons, which I love because once you apply them over your cardstock, you can spread them out using a slightly wet foam applicator or brush. I also used the Make a Splash Shimmer Pastel Set to add just a bit of color over the eyelids of the pretty girls 😉 These products are so much fun…

After I colored the faces, I was not quite sure what to do with their hair, but since I just got the new JD Wonderland Storytime Paint Pens I just added some different patterns over their hair.

I loved the pens, they cover nicely the surface and I also used the JD Finishing Line Expressive Pens to go over some of the lines that got covered by the pens paint.

At the end, I only added a sentiment from the FSJ Stay Sassy stamp set, and I added a piece of Journey Twine Licorice Twist.

Please be sure to visit the Spellbinders shop and see the amazing line of products from the Jane Davenport collection!

The New FSJ Holiday Cheer Collection is here!

Oh, Yes! Fun Stampers Journey has just released their new Holiday Cheer Collection, and it it amazing!

The Holidays Season is not far from now, and obviously we all like having new products to begin creating for those important months to come. So today I am sharing two products that I created using two of my favorite stamp sets from the Holiday Cheer release.

My first card features a very cute set called Yeti Confetti. This is a fun set that includes images that you can use all along the Winter season. So, here you have it:

To create the background I used Lovely Blue Liquid Color along with shaving cream. I made a mix with those and transferred a bit of the the mix over an acrylic block, just enough to make a rectangular mark. Then I placed the block over a Whip Cream panel, removed the excess and let it dry.

To complement the background, I white-embossed some snowflakes, as well as a sentiment over a Black Licorice cardstock strip. The cute Yeti images were colored with Liquid Colors and I added some Journey Glaze details to them. Last but not least, I embellished the card with Fashion Silver pearls, Gift twine and a button (Holiday Mix and Match Embellishment pack).

The second card features one ATS stamp called Fall Thanks and it includes a big solid sentiment along with some small Fall related images. Take a look:

To create the background I used the same technique as the one from my first card, but this time using two different liquid colors. Quick and easy. So, for the beautiful sentiment I used one of the Create-a-Palette pads to create my own combo of Liquid Colors, and I used it to ink the large sentiment.

I really like these pads and the beautiful ombré effects that you can achieve with your own color combinations, so much fun!. So, I die cut the sentiment with its matching die, I added Journey Glaze and Sparkle Cuts and I let the piece dry. Meanwhile I die cut a rectangular frame from Whip Cream cardstock using the Fancy Edged Rectangles die set by Spellbinders.

I adhered this frame over the background panel, and then I adhered the sentiment with Journey squares. I finished up this card with some Sparkle Silk (a must have FSJ product!) and some Fashion Silver pearls.

I highly recommend you to to see the >>>new Holiday Cheer catalog <<< There are a lot of new stamps and lots of inspiration for you. If you missed the launch show, you can watch it by clicking >>> HERE <<< there were Guest designers, amazing card designs and a lot of fun.
