Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day, friends! Today I am happy to share a card that I created using some Fun Stampers Journey products. The stamp set that my card is showcasing is called Sending My Love Stamp Set, take a look:

For this card I made a rectangle from the Follow Your Heart Printed Paper as the background. I don’t know about you but I like to always have printed paper handy, it is such a time saver, specially when you have to make more than one card!

Moving on, I matted the printed paper rectangle with Lavender Fusion cardstock and I adhered the panel over a Sweet Cherry folded card. I also created a Whip Cream frame using a Fancy Edged Rectangle die. Underneath it I placed a double layer of vellum and printed paper. I adhered the rectangle over the card with foam squares and I also placed a strip of Mirror Gold Cardstock in between.

After that, I proceeded to stamp the focal point images using one of the Create a Palette Refillable Ink Pads. I used the following Liquid Colors to create my combo: Bubble Gum, Rustic Rose, Watermelon Fusion, Lavender Fusion and Pretty Amethyst.

I like the stamping results a lot by using these type of pads and as you can see the images look really pretty! To finish up my card I adhered some Gold Sequins, Journey Glaze details and a heart shaped paper clip.

The New FSJ Ready, Set, Spring Collection is Here!

Hello friends! Today I am happy to share that the new Fun Stampers Journey Ready, Set, Spring Collection in now live in the Spellbinders shop! This new collection brings cute critters, sentiments and the whole feeling that Spring is around the corner! Take a look at the card that I created with one of my favorites stamp sets from this collection:

This set is called Joyful Greetings and I used its matching Die Set too. The stamp images of this set are very pretty with lots of floral details and solid areas, which I thought were just perfect to give them a pretty ombré effect. So, using Create-A-Palette Refilable Ink pads I stamped the cute fox, the heart and the darling bird.

Not sure if you have seen these before, but when you buy the ink pads, they come with no colors…

So you can create your own color combinations using re-inkers or like I did, Liquid Colors ! This is quite an easy way to give your stamp images a fun look!

Additionally, I would like to mention that a Project Kit is also available for purchase, which includes the following: AT-0359 Happy Spring Mini Stamp Set, SS-0689 Joyful Greetings Stamp Set, DI-0547 Joyful Greetings Die Set, DI-0545 Bunny Trio Die Set, Kit Materials to Assemble FOUR Cards.

FSJ Stamp of the Month: Spring in The Desert

Hello friends! February has just started so it is time to share a card featuring the Fun Stampers Journey Stamp of the Month: Spring in the Desert. This stamp set is full of beautiful flowers and succulents, perfect to to create pretty bouquets and backgrounds too. So, for today I created this card:

I began by adhering a patterned paper rectangle over a Hazelnut Blend folded card. Then I die cut a Fancy Edged Rectangle from Whip Cream cardstock and I stamped a sentiment. I adhered the rectangle over the card.

The images were also stamped with Black Licorice ink over Peaches and Cream cardstock, and then I added details with liquid colors. I fussy cut the images and I arranged them over the rectangle giving them dimension with foam squares. Last but not least, I embellished the cards with sequins, pearls and thread.

FSJ’s Kindness Matters Collection is Here!

Kindness Matters is the name of the new collection that Fun Stampers Journey has just released and today, I am delighted to share two cards created with one of my favorite stamp sets from this release: Baby Farm Animals and its coordinating dies.

For my first card, I took advantage of the cute outlined darling images, and I grabbed my Journey Splash Watercolor Pencils to color them. Once the color dried, I die cut them with their matching dies.

I thought a red barn would be a perfect match for these cute creatures, so I die cut a Candy Apple Reversed Banner shape and I cut off two of its corners to create the shape of a traditional barn.

After that, I created the lines with a ruler and a thin marker. Then, to create the barn doors, I simply made two small rectangles and I dragged criss cross lines with my white Journey Burst Color Pencil. I glued those two pieces over a Whip Cream rectangle and adhered the piece over the barn.

I created the little window over the door the same way. I finished up the barn with a piece of Hazelnut Blend cardstock to create the roof over the barn. Quite simple if you ask me, but fun to create.

My second card is a bit simpler than the one above. In this case, I simply stamped the baby animals with Black Licorice True Color Fusion Ink over different colors of cardstock.

I used the grass and cloud die cuts from the Sweet Home Accent die set to create a simple, yet pretty scene for the cute baby animals.

I arranged them over a rectangle cut out of Pool Play cardstock and of course I also included a sentiment. I finished up the card with wiggle eyes for the cute animals and some white pearls here and there.

Anyway, please be sure to visit the FSJ shop and see the whole collection; you can either buy the products individually or you can also buy a Project Kit, which means a great deal!

Hard to believe that we are already in November and of course, this means that a new Fun Stampers Journey Stamp of the Month has just been released. So, this month’s wonderful set is called  Mistletoe & Holly, and it features a couple of adorable fawn images along with some other complementary images and sentiments.

I began by creating the background using a sponge dauber and Limeade Splash Liquid Color. Then, I stamped the fawn and the leaf images with Black Licorice True Color Fusion Ink over Whip Cream cardstock. I colored them with Journey Color Burst color pencils and I added some Journey Glaze details.

I fussy-cut the images with detail shears and arranged them over a Nestabilities Hemstitch Circle . I complemented with a sentiment, and a long vertical banner. I finished up this card with a silver Tag Clip w/ a Journey Twine Candy Apple bow, a few Holiday Elements sequins and some tiny Fashion Silver pearls.

FSJ • USA Land That I love!

This is just a quick post to wish everyone a Happy Memorial day and to share a card that I created using a fabulous Fun Stampers Journey stamp set called Old Glory, which is perfect to create project for important days like today or the 4th of July:

The color combo that I used for today’s card is Pool Play, Catalina Splash, Candy Apple and Whip Cream. I created a simple background with the word “Liberty” and I placed it diagonally over a folded card. I also stamped the stars and stripes strips and placed them over the background. I die cut a couple of circles from Whip Cream cardstock, and I stamped the sentiment over one of them.

I stamped the different elements over Whip Cream cardstock and I die cut them with their matching die. I arranged them over the card and I finished it up with Sparkle Silk, silver pearls and a red star dot.

Well, I hope you all have the opportunity to spend time with family and friends, and maybe can attend to a parade or event to honor the brave men and women who have died serving our country.

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<<<
