You Make my Heart Smile Card

Lately, I have been using some amazing products by Jane Davenport that have really made me get into the creative mode and get a bit messy too. There is something about the beautiful packaging and the GREAT quality of these products that make me want to stop doing whatever I am doing and start using them! Really!

One of my favorite products are called Inkredible Inks ArtEssentials. These are twelve beautiful colors and each of them come in a bottle that can be used to create wonderful backgrounds or used as paints to color stamped images too. But we all know that when we get into the artsy mode, there are no rules to create and let your creativity flow!

So today I am sharing a simple card, that features a quick and easy background made with Inkredible Inks. I am attaching a quick video at the end of this post so you can see how easily you can create it. Here is my finished card:

I love how easy you can layer the Inkredible Ink colors and if you paired them with a Color Splash Watercolor Sheets, you can achieve beautiful results!

To avoid my watercolor panel from curving, I put it underneath something heavy to dry, and I also put a piece of scrap paper over the panel to absorb some of the moisture. While waiting for the background to dry, I used a wonderful FSJ stamp set called Cottage Bouquet to stamp the images with Black Licorice Ink. After that, I die cut it with its matching dies.

After that background panel was dried, I stamped a sentiment and I adhered it over a folded card. As always, I embellished the card with some pearls plus some gemstones and I added some Journey Glaze details. Journey Glaze is a must have product, it dries faster than other similar products on the market and it gives your cards a beautiful finishing look.

So, let me tell you that lots of Jane Davenport products are currently on sale, so this is a great opportunity to put some wonderful products in your shopping cart 😉

Live Every Week Like it’s Shark Week Card

Hey there! Since this week is Shark Week… I have a fun card that I want to share showcasing a FSJ Set called Shark Attack and its matching die set:

I began by stamping the two cute sharks with Black Licorice Ink and I colored them with different color of Mermaid Markers… which I love, because of their bright colors! After that I die cut them with their matching dies. I also used a fun die called Pool with a View, to make a swimming pool for those sharks with their floaties.

Be aware that my post includes affiliate links, which means that if you click on and shop through them, I will receive a tiny commission. Thanks!

Then, I created the background. To do that I used a plain Beach Breeze Cardstock panel, and a Snow Queen Story Time Paint Pen to create a polka dot pattern. Next, I adhered the panel over a Rock Candy folded card. Additionally, I white-embossed a sentiment over a Black Licorice rectangle and I adhered with foam squares. I finished off the card with some wiggle eyes for the sharks and some silver sequins.

By the way, there is a fantastic deal at the Spellbinders Shop right now, so please be sure to visit them…

I chose one of the sets included in this kit create two different cards. This stamp set is called Arctic Wonder and I also used its matching die set. So the first card features three of the bear images over a striped background made of cardstock strips.

This is an easy way to create a colorful background for your cards that will make your stamped images stand out. The sentiment was simply white-embossed over a Black Licorice stitched circle, and of course some sequins made the trick to embellish this cute card.

The second card showcases the other three bear images included in the set. With that many bear images you have a lot of choices to create the perfect arctic scene, don’t you think? I stamped the images over Whip Cream cardstock with Black Licorice ink, and I arranged them over a Whip Cream panel. After that, using my Misti I stamped the sentiment and I enhanced it with Journey Glaze.

This time, I used a Holiday Cheer Prints rectangle as the background/mat for my card. I used front and back of the same sheet. The snowflakes pattern for the largest panel and I used the other side of the paper to create a strip, which also serves as the base for my bears, so they don’t look like they are floating 😉

I finished off this card with a silver snow flake, some silver-embossed tiny snowflakes and some silver sequins.

You Make My Heart Smile Card

Making handmade cards is always fun, specially when you are creating a card for somebody in particular. I think that when those cards arrive to their final destination and make the recipient smile is when you know that all that work and creativity accomplished their goal.

Today, I am sharing a card that I made for a friend, and I had a lot of fun creating it. This time, I used the Spellbinders Small Die of the Month (June 2020), check it out:

This exclusive designed die set is called Handing You a Smile and it belongs to one of the clubs that month after month Spellbinders offers you as a Membership. Other clubs also available include stamps, hot foil kits, or card kits that you can use to create whatever your heart desires. Please be sure to check out all those fabulous clubs that SB brings to you >>> HERE<<<

Be aware that my post includes affiliate links, which means that if you click on and shop through them, I will receive a tiny commission. Thanks!

For this card I created a subtle background using Banana Cream Liquid Color and a Dowel Dauber. You can see this fun and easy technique >>>here<<<

Then, using different colors of FSJ cardstock I die-cut the different flower parts to create a bouquet and the pretty hand. It seems like a lot of work, but believe me, it is really fun to put all the pieces together. First, I assembled the flowers, then I flipped them over and I affixed their stems in place with a square foam. After that, I played a bit placing the flowers in the right place, and once they looked perfect to me, I used a piece of Glad Press’n Seal to hold the bouquet in place. I carefully adhered one flower at a time, and once everything was glued to the card, I adhered the leaves. At the very end, I stamped a sentiment over Whip Cream cardstock with Black Licorice Ink, I trimmed around it with my detail shears and adhered it with a foam square. I finished it up with some Fashion Gold embellishments and some Gold Friendship Sequins.

FSJ • Life is Short Make it Sweet Card

Summer is just perfect to do many things outdoors, like walks, gardening, or simply sitting outside to enjoy the warm weather. Lately, since we have been spending more time at home, we have been enjoying a scoop of frozen yogurt sometimes after dinner. So, thinking about those yummy summer moments, I created this card:

My card showcases a FSJ stamp set called Sweet Life and its matching die set. I chose a color combo that reminds me of the sweetness of ice cream, so to create the duo-tone background I applied Lovely Blue and Banana Cream liquid colors over my Whip Cream cardstock panel with a dauber dowel. I let it dry and after that I matted the panel, and adhered over a Bubblegum folded card.

I stamped the images with Black Licorice ink over Whip Cream cardstock, I colored them using my Journey Splash Watercolor Pencils and I die-cut them with their matching dies . I added some Journey Glaze and Sparkle Cuts details too. The sentiment was simply stamped over a stitched circle and enhanced with Journey Glaze as well. I finished up this card by adding some Sweet Candy Drops and some Sparkle Silk.

FSJ • Stamp of the Month: Penguin Waddle

Hey there! I am beginning this month with a card featuring the Stamp of the Month by Fun Stampers Journey: Penguin Waddle. This cute set includes a bunch of adorable penguins and various sentiments which are great to create winter cards 😉 Take a look:

I began by creating the background using a Catalina Splash Cardstock panel, and I simply rubbed Whip Cream PanPastel over the panel in a circular motion from the center towards the edges to create an ombré effect. Then, I simply matted the panel with Watermelon Fusion Cardstock and adhered the panel over a Pool Play Cardstock folded card. I flicked some Sparkle Silk over the background too.

I die cut the hill from Whip Cream cardstock and adhered it onto the card. Then, I stamped the penguins with Black Licorice True Color Fusion Ink, I colored their feet and beaks with a color pencil, and stamped those cute hats. This set doesn’t have a matching die set, but they are super easy to fussy-cut with your detail scissors. Finally, I white embossed a sentiment and die cut it into a heart shape. I adhered penguins and heart with foam squares and embellish with Fashion Silver pearls, a piece of Silver Sparkle Washi Tape and a Petal Clip.

Be sure to find a lot more wonderful inspiration and details about the November SOTM over the Spellbinders-FSJ blog, and a great video for you to WATCH.

FSJ Easy Breezy Spring + Sneak Peek

Easy Breezy Spring is the name of the new wonderful collection that Fun Stampers Journey will be releasing today April 26th and of course you are invited to join us for a LIVE Launch Party, from 3 to 5pm Pacific Time.

If you are not familiar with the FSJ Parties, I have to say that they are a lot of fun. FSJ will be presenting the whole new collection and along the show they will have project demos, bundles for sale and GIVEAWAYS! You will find the Launch Party on the FSJ YouTube channel, on the FSJ Facebook page , or on the FSJ store.

So, as part of this event, I am sharing a project that I created with one of the sets included in the collection: Cute Boots, take a look…


For my project, I created a simple but fun background using Lovely Blue Liquid Color and Sparkle Silk. I put a some drops of liquid color over the Gel Press and I spread it with a brush, then I picked up the color with a Whip Cream panel. Additionally, I sprinkled some Sparkle Silk over the blue background. Once the panel was completely dried, I adhered it over a Tin Pail folded card. I want to point out that the Sparkle Silk is one of my favorites products because it gives just the perfect sparkle touch that projects need to make them stand out!

Next, I stamped a base image over Whip Cream  cardstock, and I fussy cut it with scissors. After that, I stamped the image again over different colors of cardstock, and using my scissors I cut details of each color, and then I glued them over the base image. The piecing technique is one of my favorites because it will never disappoint you!


To finish up this card, I stamped the sentiment over Whip Creamcardstock and then I die cut it using a cloud shaped die. I adhered the cloud and main image onto the card using foam square. Simple, simple yet very pretty!

Thinking of You Card

Happy Friday, friends! Here is a card that I created featuring a pretty stamp set called: Strength and Hope along with some others fabulous Fun Stampers Journey products.

I used the Diamond Netting Embossing Folder and Sweet Pear cardstock to make a background panel. I adhered the panel over a folded card of the same color. This is one of my favorites embossing folders, the diamonds pattern is clean and simple, so pretty! I also used the Ornate Blooms ATS stamp and Liquid Colors (Cool Pool, Peaches & Cream, Lemon Grass) to create a stamped panel. This time, it did not really matter if the image was perfect, I knew that just a bit of it was going to be shown so, I think it looks imperfectly perfect for my card. I trimmed the image into a rectangle and I adhered it onto a Cool Pool cardstock mat.

I stamped the butterfly, flower and sentiment using Black Licorice ink over Whip Cream cardstock. I only added Journey Glaze and Sparkle Cuts to them. Next, I die cut the butterfly and flower with their matching die, and I trimmed the sentiment with scissors. After that, I adhered them over a Whip Cream tag that belongs to the Special Day Tags die set. No need for embellishments this time, the card looks so pretty as it is!

I also want to share that currently Fun Stampers Journey has a sale called: Encore-Returning Favorites promoting some fabulous stamp sets, dies and printed papers that were previously retired but now are back at the store. Be aware that these products will be available while supplies last. Please be sure to click >>>HERE<<< to see the complete list of products, you might want to get some of them!
