FSJ • New Mystic Romance Collection {Miss You}

Hello friends! Lately, I have been having a lot of fun playing with all the New Mystic Romance Collection by Fun Stampers Journey. This collection is one of my favorites from the New FSJ 2017-2018 Inspiration Book & Catalog, specially because it showcases beautiful stamps that have a stitched or embroidery look.  Richard Garay and my team pals have been posting projects using this collection, so  please be sure to see all of them: >Richard 1< >Laura< >Michelle< >Patricia 1< >Patricia 2< and >Richard 2<  All of these projects are simply amazing!

Today I am sharing a card that I created using a stamp set called Stitched Dreams. This set features a swan image along with a pretty bee and some beautiful flowers.


I begun by arranging the different flower stamps over an acrylic block. Then,  I put Banana Cream and Bubble Gum Liquid colors over the Gel press (I will explain a little bit more about this Gel Press in my next post). After that, I rolled the Brayer a few times over the Gel Press to pick up the colors. I transferred the ink from the Brayer directly over the stamps by rolling it.  Next, I simply stamped the flowers over a Whip Cream rectangle. I picked up more color from the Gel press with the brayer, and  I stamped the images again. I repeated this a few times to create the background.  Besides that,  I rolled the brayer over the edges  to distressed them. I added some stitches marks with a die that belongs to a set called Pocket Cuts. I sprinkle a little bit of Limeade Splash Liquid color over the background with a brush, just to complement my combo and then, I adhered the panel onto a Bubble Gum cardstock card.


I stamped the swan over Whip Cream cardstock with Black Licorice ink.  I die cut one swan with its matching die, I colored its beak with a Burst Color pencil, and I applied Journey Glaze and Sparkle cuts over the swan’s tail.  I stamped another swan on another piece of Whip Cream cardstock, and I apply Journey Glaze and Sparkle cuts over the wing. I trimmed the wing with my scissors and I adhered it over the other whole swan. I used a glue dot and two small foam squares to give a little bit of dimension to the wing… so pretty!


To finish this card I added some Lemon Grass thread, a sentiment that I white embossed over a Black Licorice cardstock strip, Whip Cream Sparkle Tape, and I added some sequins. I really liked how this card turned out!

FSJ • Good Luck

Happy Friday everyone! Fun Stampers Journey is starting this month with the release of its new Catalog that you can see by clicking >>>HERE<<<I am very excited about it, since there is a lot of work behind this release, and honestly… The big catalog is amazing. There is a fun video that you can see >>>here<<< where you can see all the process of it.

So today, I am very happy to share a card that I made using one of the NEW stamp sets that belongs to the Mystic Romance Collection. This collections is quite unique since the images and sentiments look like embroidery, and I love that! You can either use simple stamping techniques or unleash your creativity and explore other techinque with them. The set that I used is called Tiger Bonsai and it features a Tiger, along with other images (a coordinating  die set is also available).


For my card I simply stamped the tiger image over Citrus Cooler cardstock with Black Licorice Ink. I added some white details over the tiger with my Color Burst color Pencils, and I die cut the shape with its coordinating die.


For the background, I stamped the different leaves included in the set over Green Olive cardstock with Kiwi Slice ink. I also added a few details here and there with my Color Burst  white color pencil,  just to make it a bit more interesting. The sentiment was stamped over a Whip Cream pierced rectangle and I matted it with an Oatmeal Cookie cardstock rectangle.


I used the Fun Triangles die to create a strip from Oatmeal Cookie cardstock  and I added  a strip of  Cranberry Bliss cardstock underneath.  Finally, I layered all the different elements over my card, and I added some final touches: Journey Glaze, Silk, sequins and black thread.

Please be sure to visit the Richard Garay Signature Page on Facebook (Richard has been sharing videos creating amazing projects using this collection) and of course, the Fun Stampers Journey Blog.   My talented team pals   Michelle WoernerLaura Williams, and Patricia Roebuck have also being busy sharing fabulous projects using Mystic Romance as well.
