FSJ• Be Mine Mini Cards

Hi! I am back today to share a mini card with envelope that I made featuring a few products by Fun Stampers Journey perfect for Valentines.

One of the things I love to do when I have time to play a little bit is to make my own backgrounds. So for this card, I began by creating the main panel. I used a craft sheet to spray a little bit of Cosmic Grape and Watermelon Splashes. Then, I picked up the color by placing a Whip Cream Panel over it, I flipped it over, and I let it dry. Next, I used Heart Stencil Wall to apply Journey Gesso with a sponge, and I let it dry as well.

After that, I die cut the panel into a pierced square, and then, I stamped a sentiment with Black Licorice Ink. I added Journey Glaze over each of the words. Next, I adhered the square panel onto a 3″ x 3″ Cosmic Grape card base.  To create the glittered heart, I adhered a piece of White Liner sheet over Whip Cream card stock. Then, I die cut a heart shape from it. I removed the paper liner to expose the sticky side and I applied glitter over it.  I adhered the heart onto the card with a foam square.  I embellished the card with a piece of Whip Cream Sparkle tape and a few silver sequins.

I made a coordinated envelope using a fun die called Note-Envelope. This envelope fits perfectly my mini card 😉 I love this die because it has scored folds and it closes with no need of adhesive.

To match it with the card,  I stamped the Ink Splatter stamp over the envelope with Cosmic Grape Ink, and I also stamped a mini heart with Black Licorice Ink. I added Journey Glaze over the little heart.

Finally, I adhered a heart shape on the back of the envelope just as an extra detail.

FSJ• Love is All You Need

Last year when I went to Mexico to my mom’s house, I found a bunch of slides that my dad took of the family.  I found one of myself with a cat when I was maybe three or four years old. This is one of those pictures that can demonstrate that cats have always been a part of my life 🙂 Anyway, I scanned the slide and printed it out to make a page  with it. The resolution of the picture is not good at all, but I think it is ok for my project. So today I am sharing an 8 x 8 page that I created using several products by Fun Stampers Journey. Check it:

011817web_allyouneedislove

To create this page I began by creating the background. I used the Heart Wall stencil along with PanPastels to create a subtle backgrounds that blends with the white card stock base. After that, I stamped the cute cat images randomly with River Stone ink. I also flicked some Bubble Gum and Silver Silks over it.

011817web_allyouneedislove4

I added a  couple of layers of card stock, a border and washi tape, that work as the base of the picture. I adhered this to the page with adhesive and I secure it with a couple of staples on both sides.  I die cut a pierced heart, and I stamped a sentiment with Black Licorice ink.

011817web_allyouneedislove3

I want to point out that this sentiment is included in a set called Amazing Day that belongs to the Bloom This Way Mini Catalog (recently released). I added color to the word love with Journey Color Splash Watercolor Pencils . I also applied Journey Glaze over it. I added this heart onto the page with foam squares.

011817web_allyouneedislove5

At this point I thought my page was still missing a few more details. So, I added  some punched hearts, a partial stamped border on the top of the page and a complementary sentiment. To finish it off, I embellished it with some dots and rhinestones.

011817web_allyouneedislove2

I love creating pages for my albums. This particular one was fun, not just because that page was about my childhood, but because I was able to include many Fun Stampers Journey products that I really like!

Today’s Card: Christmas Wishes

This is the time of the year that I start  gathering the Christmas cards that I have made so far, in order so send them to my friends. In past years, I have selected a card design that I really like and I have mass-produced it. Well,  for the last couple of years I have been busier than normal,  so I have opted for sending only  the cards that I have. I like selecting the cards I believe my friends would like, and then I write a few lines for each of them. Anyway, today I am sharing a simple card that I made using some Hero Arts products.

113016web_christmaswishes

To create the background I used the Calendar Bold Prints stamp using Unicorn Pigment Ink over a Blush Mix Layering paper panel. I adhered this panel over a card base.

113016web_christmaswishes2

To create the main panel, I used a very pretty  stamp set  called Vintage Christmas Wishes. I simply stamped the images using different colors of ink over a Snow Layering paper panel (Moss Hybrid Ink, Caramel Hybrid Ink, Soft Granite Shadow Ink, and Intense Black ink). Then, I tied a Bakers twine bow, and I matted the panel with Kraft card stock. I adhered the panel over the card base, and after that,  I simply embellished the card with gemstones, sequins and  Glossy Accents.

Hopefully this year I can send my cards by the end of the second week of December. How about you? Do you like to make different designs  or only one? Are you still in the process of making your Holiday cards?

FSJ • Season’s Greetings Card

Hello everyone! I am back today just to share a card that features a stamp set bundle called Robin Holiday, and I paired it with some other fabulous products by Fun Stampers Journey.

112216web_seasonsgreetings5

The stamp  set includes two pretty Robin images as well as some matching sentiments. These are the perfect images to color using your favorite coloring technique. In this case I used the Journey Color Splash Watercolor Pencils, which are super fun to use.

Anyway, I began by creating a card base, and a stamped background panel. The background stamp that I used is called  Striped Love Stamp . This large background was stamped over Cool Pool card stock with Cool Pool ink. Then I layered it over the card base. I created a pierced panel using the Pocket Cuts die set and Whip Cream card stock. I adhered this panel over the background.

112216web_seasonsgreetings6

I stamped the pretty bird over Whip Cream card stock with Black Licorice Ink. These images are quite detailed, so this makes the coloring part even easier. After the coloring part was done, I die cut the image with its matching die.  I also stamped a sentiment over Whip Cream card stock and I die cut it into an oval.

112216web_seasonsgreetings4

Using Journey Thread Gold I created a couple loops onto the card, and then I adhered the bird image and sentiment using some Journey Foam Squares.  To finish off this card,  I flicked Gold silk over it,  I added some Journey Glaze and Sparkle cuts details, as well as some  Holiday Sequins.

Please be sure to visit the Fun Stampers Blog for inspiration, tips and ideas. They are  currently  having a promotion on planners and products now through December 31st.  The have put together bundles,  either size personal or the A5 planner (like the one I am showing today).  Please be sure to visit the FSJ store to see the amazing  bundles by clicking on the image below:

FSJ • Give Thanks Card

The Journey Holidays Inspiration and Trends Mini Catalog is amazing. This catalog features stamps perfect to create any kind of projects for the current festivities. I created a card showcasing some of the Thanksgiving products.  You can find the complete list of supplies at the end of this post.

111416web_givethanks

I used a turkey and sentiment images included in a set called Thanksgiving Traditions. I thought that turkey is super cute, just because it reminds me of the wild turkeys that you can see around this area 🙂 Anyhow,   I used the Autumn Prints to cover the panel. This is a quick and easy way to speed your card projects 🙂 Then, I added the stitches details along the sides with a die included in a set called Pocket Cuts Die Set . With the same set I created the square panel that I used to stamp the sentiment. I tilted it to look like a rhombus 😉

111416web_givethanks2

The Turkey was simply stamped over Oatmeal Cookie Cardstock and die cut with its matching die. I created a cluster of elements along with the turkey with some leaves that I die cut using a small leaf die that belongs to a die set called Snapshot Frames  (I love this die set!) Additionally, I included ribbon, some gold elements, Journey Glaze  and Gold silk details here and there.

If you haven’t seen  The Journey Holidays Inspiration and Trends Mini Catalog, be sure to take a look of the fabulous products included in it. All the products are available through a Coach. There is a link over the Fun Stampers Journey site where you can find one in your area.

FSJ • Make Amazing Happen

Hi! I am back today to share a card that I created with  FSJ and RG products. I have to confess that this card was made from elements that I prepared for other cards but I did not use.  I always have a bunch of different elements piling up on my desk for a few days, before they can be re-purposed or discarded. It is funny how sometimes you can use those pieces for something else.

103016web_makeamazing

Anyways, to create the background I used a Sweet Berry Panel, and I flicked Silver Silk all over.  The Tag was made from Lemon Drop card stock and a  die set called Build a Tag Two from the Celebra’tions Collection by RG.   The sentiment is from a FSJ stamp set called Greeting Trends and it was simply stamped over a Whip Cream card stock  strip with Black Licorice Ink, and the left side was trimmed with scissors.

103016web_makeamazing2

The little heart shape is from a Celebra’tions Die Set called Pierced Hearts. I die cut the piece from Lemon Drop cardstock, I added Journey Glaze and Journey Sparkle Dust over to make it shine.  The loops were created with LumberJack Jean Cord. I layered all the elements of this card onto a River Stone card stock card base and at the end, I simply embellished it with some Silver sequins. You can find the complete list of supplies at the end of this post.

As you can see, I do not always plan my projects. Some of them just happen to be already on my desk, waiting to be put together 🙂
