FSJ Concept Designers Gel Press Print Swap

The FSJ Concept Designers have been having a little fun together (well, a LOT of fun) and today we want to show you what we’ve been working on! We had ourselves a little print swap. The six of us divided up into pairs. Three of the designers created an 8.5×11″ print on the Journey Gel Press. Then they cut their print in half and sent half to their partner. Each partner created a card using that print, and today we’re going to share what we’ve created! It was a really fun swap and I can’t wait to see all three of the prints, and how each designer used their print on a project!
I was one of the designers that made an 8.5×11″ print, and I created it by using warm acrylic paint tones  (I was thinking of the Fall season ), with a pop of white. I really liked how it turned out ! Besides the acrylic paints, I used stencils and modeling paste. This is my half:

 I mailed the other half of the print to my partner for the swap who is Michelle, and  I have created this card with my half:
112317web_thankscard
 
Since the colors were warm, I thought about making a thank you card for for the Fall season. I used the Journey Gel Press print to make a background for the card, and I paired it with a thank you sentiment from a set called: Summer Garden.  I also used one Foiled Frame, some leaves and a zig-zag border.

To finish up my card I used some Gold Fashion dots and Gold ThreadSo now, if you haven’t visited Michelle yet, please click here to see what she has come up with her half! 
Then, hop around to the rest of the teams, and see the prints they created, plus how they each used those prints! 
 
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Enjoy the rest of the swap stops, and don’t forget to pin everyone’s projects for inspiration later on!”

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.

092917web_hallows2

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.

092917web_hallows1

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 • Praying for You

Hi there! I have always liked to create my own backgrounds. Sometimes when I am just playing with some fun products like the Fun Stampers Liquid Colors and the Journey Gel Press, it is hard to stop… I usually end up making many backgrounds! Today I am sharing a card that I made using one of those backgrounds along with some other products by Fun Stampers Journey

081217web_prayingforyou

To create the background I simply put Lemon Drop and Fresh Forest Liquid color drops over the Journey Gel Press. Then, I sprayed a little bit of water with a mister  and  I spread the color with a brayer. I waited a few seconds until dots of color were formed over the Journey Gel Press and then I placed a Whip Cream panel over to pick up the color.  The beautiful flowers image is from a set called Beauty Blooms. To give the stamped image an ombré effect, I applied different colors of ink over the stamp with sponge daubers. To complement the focal point, I stamped a sentiment with Black Licorice ink over a strip of Whip Cream cardstock. Then, I fussy-cut the images with my favorite scissors, the Details Pro Shears!

081217web_prayingforyou2

I also die cut a tag from Fresh Forest cardtsock and then, I  layered all the card components using foam squares. I added some details like Journey tape, rainbow drops, Natural Thread, and a vellum strip behind the sentiment.  I was very happy with the results.

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 😀

081217web_candycorn

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.

mg_DSC_0092

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.

mg_DSC_0093

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.

081217web_candycorn2

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 🙂

FSJ • Journey Gel Press Fun Projects

Hey there! I am back to share a couple of cards that I created using the new Journey Gel Press  and Fluttering Hearts Gel Impressions Plate.  Last June, I had the chance to be in one of the Gel Press workshops that took place at the FSJ Convention as an spectator. One of the things that I liked the most about it, was the versatility. There is no wrong way whatsoever while using the press.  The paper literally gets transformed into beautiful unique backgrounds that you can use for your cards, scrapbooking, etc. It is so much fun!

Last week, Richard did some videos featuring the regular flat press and the heart one as well. You can see some of these videos by clicking >>>HERE<<<

For my first card I created a multi layer background using the Journey Gel Press  and the Fluttering Hearts Gel Impressions Plate . Check it out:

071717web_youareamazing

I used the regular Gel Press to create a  background over a Whip Cream panel inking the surface directly with my ink pad. Then, I placed the panel over it to pick up the ink.  The result was an uneven subtle background. Quick and easy.

After that, I inked the Hearts Gel Press with a darker color and I placed the Whip Cream Panel on top of the Gel Press.

Next, and just to give the hearts a different look I randomly inked the hearts only using the side of the ink pad. Then, I place the cardstock panel over my table, and flipped over the Heart Gel Press  and carefully placed it onto the panel trying to match the hearts below. I repeated this twice.

67

Since I was experimenting with this background, I also stamped the Vintage Notes background on top of my Gel Press impressions.   I stamped a sentiment and I finished my card with Journey Glaze, Journey tape and sequins.

071717web_youareamazing2

For my  second card, I used the the Journey Gel Press  and the Fluttering Hearts Gel Impressions Plate  as well, but this time I did not create that many layers of ink, but at the end I was very pleased with the results. Take a look…

071717web_hellolove

If you like to experiment and play with different mediums, I highly recommend you to try the Journey Gel Press. It is so much fun to create with it.

FSJ• Way To Go!

Hi there! It has been a while since the last time I posted a project here on my blog, sorry about that. I have to say that it feels good to be able to share again. For the last few months I have been really busy creating like never before! On the good note, the new FSJ big catalog was revealed last week during the 2017 Fun Stampers Journey Convention in Phoenix, but it won’t  be until next month when everybody can see it 😉 I will share when that day comes! It is amazing!

Today I am sharing a masculine card that I created using some stamps that I like a lot.  I used Rock Candy cardstock to create the card base, and then I stamped the Ink Splat stamp over with Whip Cream Ink. I also stamped the sentiment with this ink, to create a white shadow.

060517web_waytogo

I stamped the sentiment again with Black Licorice Ink over the white one. Since you want the white image to be a shadow, unprecision is your friend, right? 😉 After that, I applied Journey Glaze over the words and Iet it dry. Meanwhile, I stamped the vintage truck onto Candy Apple cardstock with Black Licorice Ink.

060517web_waytogo2

I added som white details with a white Color Burst color pencil. I fussy cut the truck with my scissors and I adhered the piece with Journey squares. Finally, I embellished the card with Silver Silk and rhinestones. Easy peasy, don’t you think? At the end of this post you will find the complete list of supplies.

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.

020917web_bemine

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.

020917web_bemine5

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.

020917web_bemine4

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.

020917web_bemine2

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.

020917web_bemine3

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

———- ♥ ———-

Well, that’s all from me for today, I hope you have a wonderful Valentines Day celebrating with family and friends. I’ll be back soon to share another project.

Thanks for stopping by:) Have a wonderful crafty weekend!
