FSJ Stamp of the Month: Natural Dreamer

The new Fun Stampers Journey Stamp of The Month is called Natural Dreamer and it showcases pretty whimsy images that are just perfect to create fabulous projects. So, today I am sharing a card that I created with this set:


I began by stamping a Lace background image over a Watermelon Fusion cardstock panel with Sweet Berry True Color Fusion ink. Then, I adhered the panel over a Sweet Berry folded card.

The focal point was created by Stamping the image over a Whip Cream circle with Sweet Berry True Color Fusion ink. Then, I white-embossed a second image over vellum. After that, I placed the embossed image onto the Sweet Berry image a bit off center to create a shadow effect. With the image on the right place, I made some pencil marks so I could die cut the vellum into a circle slightly bigger than the one below. I adhered the two circles together with a few glue dots (placing them where they were not going to be noticeable).

The rest of the card was simple: a white-embossed sentiment over a Black Licorice strip and matted with a gold strip, Gold Fashion pearls, a heart shaped clip and some silk.

FSJ Stamp of the Month: Fresh Start

April has just begun, so that means a brand new Fun Stampers Journey Stamp of the Month has just been released. This new stamp set is called Fresh Start. I love that this set features a bunch of flower images that are perfect to color using any of your favorite techniques. The sentiments included are also beautiful and just right for Spring.


For this card, I used Liquid Colors (Lemon Drop, Limeade Splash, Orange Creamsicle, and Sweet Pear) to create a fun background over a Whip Cream  Panel. I adhered this panel onto a Lemon Drop folded card. After that, I stamped the images with Black Licorice ink over Whip Cream  cardstock. I used a brush to color the images with Liquid Colors as well, and then I fussy cut the shapes with scissors.

Next, I adhered a piece of polka dot washi tape over a Whip Cream  long strip of cardstock , and I trimmed one of the ends to make it look like a long banner. I also die cut a hollow circle from Lemon Drop cardstock, and I used it as the frame for my bunch of flowers.

Last, I white-embossed a sentiment over Black Licorice cardstock, and I die cut it into a circle and I adhered it onto the card using foam squares. To finish up this card I added some sequins and glitter gems. I loved the color combination I used, so here you have it:

FSJ Stamp of the Month: Good Places

Good Places is the name of the current Stamp of the Month by Fun Stampers Journey. I have a card that I made with it and I want to share with you, take a look:

The set is so pretty and includes images like windmills, a tulip, wooden shoes and some sentiments. For this particular card I created a background made of different colors of cardstock: Pineapple Smoothie, Haystack, Rustic Rose and Peaches & Cream. I created different sizes of rectangles and arranged them over a Whip Cream folded card. Then I used the Green House die to cut a label from Whip Cream cardstock which I used to stamp the sentiment with Black Licorice ink.

After that, I stamped the windmill images over Whip Cream cardstock with Pomegranate Splash ink and I die cut it with its matching die (Matching dies are sold separately) . I also white-embossed the wooden shoes overPeaches & Cream cardstock and die cut it as well. I arranged them over the label and adhered them using foam squares. To finish up this card, I only used a few Sweet Candy Drops and presto!

If you like the color combo I used, here you have it:

Going Places Stamp SetBlack Licorice inkSweet Candy Drops

Sending You Sunshine Card

The Fun Stampers Journey Stamp of the Month of February was just released last week and this great set is called Orange Blossoms. So today I am sharing a card that I made with it along with a few other FSJ products.

The cluster of oranges is the main image and I have to say that it is a quite fun image, perfect for any coloring technique, although for this card I chose to keep the image black and white contrasting with background. The background was made with Liquid Colors, a brayer and the Gel Press. The FSJ Gel Press is a fun tool that allows you to create unique backgrounds using inks, acrylics, or liquid colors. This time I used Lemon Drop, Orange Creamsicle and Rich Coral to create a fun mix of colors.

I know it is difficult to see, since my pictures are a bit grainy due to the lack of light when I took them, but I used the Bloom Wall Stencil along with Journey Gel Medium to create a subtle glossy patterned layer over the background.

The sentiment was simply white-embossed over a piece of Black Licorice cardstock. Then I paired the strip with a piece of Pop of Color washi tape and Journey Twine Licorice Twist. As the final touches a few Rainbow Drops were just perfect to complete my card.

I would love to point out that the Stamp of the Month is a subscription and by joining this club you will have some great benefits, like special deals and savings at the Spellbinders/FSJ store. For more details please click >>>HERE<<<

FSJ • Love You Card + Sketch

As I said on my last post, I love challenges. Well, my Fun Stampers Journey partner and friend Laura Williams and I decided to challenge ourselves and have some fun creating. Lately, I have been struggling a bit with that mojo that sometimes needs a little push, so we came up with the idea of posting a sketch challenge. I created a fun sketch and we made a Valetines themed card from it. Take a look:

There is no technique or any other requirement but the sketch to create a card. In my case, I kept it simple. I used a Whip Cream panel over a River Stone folded card, and then I adhered a Follow Your Heard Print rectangle to cover the lower half part of the panel. Then, I die cut different sizes of Hearts using Whip Cream, Bubble Gum and Raspberry Berry cardstocks.

I layered the hearts and white-embossed a sentiment over a Black Licorice cardstcok strip. To finish up this card, I used a piece of Silver Sparkle tape, Sparkle silk and some silver sequins. Simple, fun and pretty!

So, you are welcome to grab this sketch and join us. So please don’t be shy, and leave your link in the comments area… we would love to see what you create!

Laura also created a lovely project using a fun technique, and you can see her project by clicking >>>HERE<<<
