FSJ • A Day in the City

The 12″ x 12″ scrapbook page size has always been my favorite to work with since the large size gives you plenty of room for pictures and many products like patterned papers and embellishments. However, I also have done some of my pages in 8″ x 8″ or 6″ x 8″ sizes. These last two, are fun since you can finish a page faster, but the size of the page kind of limits the amount of details and pictures you can use. Anyhow, I was curious about trying another size for a page: 8.5″ x 11″ or Letter size. I have seen many  scrapbookers creating using this size and they always seem to achieve beautiful pages where the amount of elements seems to be just right.

Well, today I am sharing a letter size page that I made using wonderful Fun Stampers Journey products to document a short visit to the city that my husband and I did last year. I won’t be describing each of the steps I followed to create this page but I will highlight a few of them.

I used the clouds paper that is included in the Spring Filled Prints pack, as the background for the double layer of buildings I made with the Hero City die. For the other part of the page, I used the dotted paper included in the Birthday Pop Prints pack. To disguise the joint in between, and to connect the upper and bottom parts of the page, I used two lines of Journey Tape. You can barely see them since the pictures and title are right on top of them.

020418web_adayinthecity5

For the word “city” I aligned the letters on an acrylic block leaving enough space in between them, so I could die cut them later. I inked the whole letters with Beach Ball ink and then, using a sponge dauber and Huckleberry Fusion Ink, I applied color over half of each letter to achieve an ombré effect. This part has to be done fast because you don’t want the ink to dry over the stamp. For this step be sure that both of your ink pads are quite juicy.

For the words “A Day in The”, I stamped each letter with Black Licorice Ink and I die cut each of them with their matching die. I used a circle as a base to adhere the letters. Using a circle was in part, because we rode the Ferris wheel 😉 and because I could put more letters along the circle than if I tried to put them all in a straight line over the word “city”. I think they fit and look better. Besides that, I punched a couple of hearts using Mirror Gold cardstock, just to embellish and link both lines of the title.

Besides the pictures, I also used the memorabilia from that day as part of my page. Since the page already had a lot of elements so far, I did not want to add that many embellishments, so I only used a bubble text, a piece of view film, and a camera clip. Overall I can say that I liked the letter size for a page, I made it quite fast, and I loved how my page turned out at the end.

FSJ • Bloom This Way • Love Bug Card

Fun Stampers Journey has recently released the new Bloom This Way mini catalog which includes lots of new products perfect for the upcoming important festivities on our calendars!

Today I am sharing a card that I created using a super cute Host Exclusive stamp set  called Bug Love and its matching die set. Take a look:

011018web_lovebug

To create my card, I stamped a Watermelon Fusion panel  using Black Licorice ink and a background stamp called Graduated Dots. I adhered this panel onto a Black Licorice card base.

I stamped the pretty lady bug image and sentiment over Whip Cream cardstock with Black Licorice Ink. I colored the bug with Candy Apple and River Stone Liquid Colors and I die cut both shapes with their matching dies. After that, I added Journey Glaze details and I let them dry.

011018web_lovebug2

I also die cut two hearts from Bubble Gum cardstock and a different heart from  Sweet Berry cardstock to create a base of layers underneath the sentiment and lady bug. I finished up m card with Journey tape, Sparkle silk and some yummy heart shaped dots.

One of the advantages of hosting a Fun Stampers party is, besides spending time with your friends creating,  you have the opportunity to purchase some exclusive items like the Bug Love 🙂 If you are curious about how to host a party and get to know more about the fabulous Fun Stampers products, please be sure to visit their website and search for a coach in your area.

FSJ • Bloom This Way Mini Catalog + Have A Magical Birthday Card

Happy New Year, friends! What a better way to start the year than with a fresh release by Fun Stampers Journey! The new Bloom This Way mini catalog is full of wonderful products and currently lots of inspirations are being shared on Facebook and the FSJ Blog.

unnamed

Today I am sharing a card that I created using a pretty stamp set named Magical Unicorn along with some of the papers from the Birthday Pop Prints pack.

010218web_magicalbday

I used one of the prints to create a panel that I adhered over a card base. Then, I used some other small prints rectangles, and a pierced oval to create some layers over the card.


The images and sentiment were stamped with Black Licorice ink over Whip Cream card stock. I colored some details of the unicorn and the tiny hearts with the Journey Burst Color Pencils and then, I die cut the stamped images with their matching dies. I applied Journey Glaze and Sparkle cuts over the images and sentiment, and I let them dry.

010218web_magicalbday2

To finish up this card, I simply layered the images over the card using foam squares to give the elements extra dimension.


Please be sure to visit the FSJ Blog as well as their FB page for more inspiration and ideas fro the Bloom This Way mini catalog!

FSJ • Happy New Year + 5 Faves Cards & Products

The year is almost over, and by now we all should have a list or at least, a tentative list of  resolutions for the upcoming year, right? Well, mine is a short list that of course, includes sharing projects more often here on my blog. 2017 was a busy year for our family, so between two jobs, having the task of selling our old house, finding a new one, and moving in, was challenging to me. On the good note, the 2017 resolutions “selling the house” and “buying a house”  have a  big check mark on the side! I can not complain, everything worked perfect for us.

Anyways,  today I am sharing a card that I made for New Years. I have to say that using patterned papers can always save you a lot of time, specially if you are short of time. I used one of the prints from the Through the Year prints pack, an with one of these 12 x 12 sheets you can make as eight backgrounds for a card like mine below:

122917web_happynewyear

The focal point was simply stamped with Black Licorice Ink over a Whip Cream small panel. I put some Journey Glaze over the words and glasses of Champagne. While the Journey glaze was still wet, I added some Silver Shavings over the glasses just to make them shine, and they actually look like tiny pretty bubbles 😉

122917web_happynewyear2

I complemented the background with strips of different kinds of Journey tape, some mirror gold stars, silk and some stars that I cut out from the Star Struck  strip. That was it!

To end this year and to share again with you, I chose five card that are my 2017 favorites. Please click on them if you want to see more details about them:

FSJ • Believe Card

The holidays are around the corner, and this is a great time to do a little bit of everything: planning, shopping, wrapping presents, cooking, baking, and why not?… create some cards 🙂 Today I am sharing a Christmas card, using some Fun Stampers Journey products, take a look:

120617web_Believe

I used two of my favorites stamp sets suited for this season: Poinsettia Burst and Holiday Script. These two sets have a matching die set, which makes crafting easier. I used one of the papers that belong to Christmas Cheer Prints pack as the background panel. That specific print was my starting point to select the cardstock and ink colors.

120617web_Believe2

I layered a piece of vellum, and a pierced rectangle on top of the background panel and then I simply layered two stamped poinsettias, a gold-embossed sentiment, and another pretty foliage element from the Timeless Foliage steel rule.  Last, I complemented the card with some loops of Gold thread, a few rainbow drops, Journey tape and staples.

Today I also want to share the new promotion that Fun Stampers Journey just launched:

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.

102817web_thanks1

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 😀

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!
