FSJ • Trick or Treat Layout

Sometimes I wish I would have had my I-phone when my sons were growing up and have taken lots and lots of pictures of them back then. Even though I am grateful that I had a camera at least to capture some of those moments, specially those experiencing new things for the very first time. Today I am sharing s letter size scrapbook page that I created of my oldest son when he went trick or treating for the first time. This page shows one of the few pictures I took that day. I know, he looks quite serious, but I bet the one that was smiling was me behind the camera! 🙂  Anyhow, I won’t explain the steps of this page, but I will mention the great Fun Stampers Journey products that I  used to create it.

The Fall-O-Ween prints were obviously my choice for this page. I love that this collection includes papers perfect for the autumn celebrations. I used a Black Licorice cardstock panel matted with one of the prints. I stamped the Widows’s Web background stamp twice with Whip Cream True Color Fusion ink to cover part of the background.  I cut a few rectangles of different sizes to layer them above the stamped area and underneath the photo.

I created a couple of clusters of elements. For the one on the upper right,  I used the skeleton from the B&W Halloween stickers and the skull clip from the All Hallows Eve Clips.  I also used a tag with my favorite twine, the Gift Twine. I also included some Journey tape pieces and some gems from the Spooky Eve Stickers. I complemented them with a few Toil and Trouble buttons and staples.

For the cluster on the left, I used one of the sentiments included in Strange Beauty stamp set as the title on my page. I was afraid that the sentiment was going to look small, but I think that with all the elements surrounding it looks just fine.

The pumpkin underneath the mushroom bunch is form a Fall set called Happy Harvest. As the final touches for this page I included some lines of journaling, Sparkle silk, and stitches.

FSJ • Happy Halloween Card

Halloween is around the corner, and there is still plenty of time to begin creating your Halloween projects. There is a particular stamp set Journey Holiday Mini Trends Catalog that I really like and it is called Skeletons Dance. The images are quite fun and they can be used to create cards, scrapbook pages or many tags for goodie bags.  So, I created a card using two of the cute skeletons.  Take a look:

I started this project by creating a card base from Black Licorice cardstock. Then I adhered a Whip Cream cardstock panel over the card.  This panel measures 5.5″ x 3.75″, so that way I left a bit of black color showing on top and a bit more on the bottom. After that, I die cut a stitched circle from Electric Lime cardstock, and the tree silhouette from the Spooksville die set using Black Licorice cardstock. I layered both and put them over my card base.

The sentiment that I used is from another pretty set called Eyes on You. I placed the sentiment over my acrylic block slightly bending the stamp as I placed it over trying to mimic the curve of the stitched circle (It helps if you first put your acrylic block over the green circle, and since the acrylic block is clear, you can see the circle underneath).

Next, I  simply stamped two cute skeletons with Black Licorice Ink over Whip Cream cardstock and then, I die cut them with their matching dies. It is so nice to have matching dies! I adhered them using Journey Foam squares and I added some Spooky Eve Stickers to complement the scene along with silk splatters and a tiny paper clip.

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.

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.

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:

FSJ • Happy Halloween Card

Hi there! The Fun Stampers Journey Holidays Mini was recently released, and let me tell you that there are a lot of new products that you are going to love.  The products are just perfect for the coming Fall and Winter celebrations, so even though those dates seems to be far away from now, we are still in time to make a wish list and order some of those fantastic products for our projects. This catalog is available through your FSJ Coach or you can take a peek online by clicking >>>HERE<<.

For today I made a Halloween card using the candy corn image from a fun set called: Halloween Silhouette as well as some other FSJ products. Yyou will find the supplies list at the end of this post 😀

To create the candy corn shapes, I stamped the image twice onto Whip Cream cardstock using Lemon Drop and Tangerine Fusion inks. I stamped a third image to make a template. I cut out the bottom part, middle part of the images  and template with scissors.

After that, I glued the yellow and orange parts over a piece of Whip Cream cardstock, and I traced the upper part of the candy corn using the template and a pencil. Then, I cut out the candy corn with scissors. I created three candy corn.

For the background I used the striped Wall stamp but instead of using it as vertical lines I used it as horizontal lines. The sentiment that I used is included in one of the Host Exclusives stamp sets included in the same catalog, and it is called: Hallows Eve.  I simply white embossed it onto a Black Licorice rectangle.

To finish off my card, I die cut some vellum circles, and used some sequins and Black Licorice as the final touches on it.

Please don’t forget that the Fun Stampers Ink Promotion is open until the end of the month, so this is a great opportunity to add some more colors to your stash 🙂
