Challenges |Sharing the Journey

I love to challenge myself. Whether it is trying a new craft technique or food recipe or a house project that I have never tried. This month I am challenging myself to build my FSJ Team.

Do you love crafting?

Do you enjoy getting a discount on your craft supplies?

Do you enjoy spending time with other crafters and sharing projects and ideas?

Do you give a lot of homemade gifts?

If you answered yes or even maybe to anyone of these, you may want to consider becoming a Fun Stampers Journey Coach. Even if you just want to be a coach to get the discount for yourself that is perfectly fine. I would love to have you as part of my team Bloomin’ Sensation.

FSJ has two great options available.  And whichever option you choose, you will be getting great products.

Together we can bring paper to life!

P.S.  Check out this stamp set that Fun Stampers Journey sent me as I work toward the incentive trip.  I still have a ways to go but it is so nice to be rewarded for my hard work as I work toward this goal.  Who doesn’t love to be rewarded for their hard work – I know I do.  You could to.

Kids Dream | Big Things…Small Beginnings |Never Give Up

I am huge on inspirational cards, especially for kids. I think it helps kids to be self-confident by reminding them how very special they are and to never give up on their dreams.  Kids Dream, Starry Night and Text Happy stamp sets really take this card to another galaxy.

Never Give Up Kids Dream

On a piece of Denim Days card stock, I stamped the Starry Night stamp with Whip Cream ink.   I added Sparkle Silk and Silver Silk to this panel. I attached this panel to a piece of Mirror Silver before popping it up using Foam Squares onto a Black Licorice panel and then finally onto a Whip Cream card base.  [lot of layers but I liked the look it gives this card].

Using Denim Days ink, I stamped the kid image from the Kids Dream Bundle on Whip Cream card stock and colored it in using our Color Burst Pencils.  The image was cut out with the coordinating die.

Using the Garden Fence Die, I cut out a piece of Whip Cream card stock.  To give the fence more detail, I ran it through the Barn Wall Embossing Folder and then taking the Tin Pail ink pad ran it over the embossed part to give the fence more dimension.  Using the Border Details dies, I ran the grass die through my Platinum with a piece of Kiwi Slice card stock.

Never Give Up Kids Dream2

To finish assembling this card – I adhered the grass to the back of the fence using Craft Glue before adhering it to the card front.  On a scrap piece of Whip Cream card stock, I stamped the Big things…sentiment in Black Licorice ink.  This comes from Text Happy. [This is a great set to have on hand especially to add little words/detail to your projects].

Never Give Up Kids Dream3

The sentiment strip was adhered to a piece of Mirror Silver and then popped up on the card front using Foam Squares.  The kid image was popped up on the card front using Foam Squares as well.

Taking a Closer Look at the Journey Holidays 2018 Trends Mini

I am one of those people that need to be able to really look at products up close.  And I am no different when it comes to my craft supplies.  So while Fun Stampers Journey does an awesome job of showing you the products in the Journey Holidays Trends Mini – I wanted to do a video showing these products in more detail.

 

Keep in mind that I don’t have all of them but I think this will give you a nice variety of what is available for you to create with this holiday season.  And remember to try to think outside the box so you can maximize your craft purchases as you start to get ready for the holidays.

May all your handmade creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.

Thank You |Best Wishes| In The Tropics

The In the Tropics stamp set reminds me of sun and relaxation. Blooms that should be stamped with very bright colors.  Our Be Amazing color collection was perfect for this!

I used the Journey Rectangles the Fancy Label Dies to cut out a piece of Whip Cream  card stock. [Be sure to save the Fancy Label piece that you cut out, you will need that later.]

The tropical blooms were randomly stamped in the following ink:  Cosmic Grape, Turbo Teal, Outrageous Pink, Orange Rave and Limeade Splash.

Thank You In the Tropics

This panel was popped up onto an Electric Lime card base using Foam Squares.

On the insert piece, I stamped the Best Wishes sentiment that comes from the Everyday Script [this set also comes as a bundle with coordinating dies] in Black Licorice Ink. It was adhered using Craft Glue and inset onto the card base.  I added Sparkle Silk to finish off the card.Thank You In the Tropics2

Here is a video for you!

I love that there is really no paper waste on this card because you are reusing the insert.

May all your handmade creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.

Wildflowers with PanPastels

The minute I saw the Wildflowers stamp I knew that it was meant to be used with our PanPastels. There are so many color combinations that would work well with this stamp.  I wanted a more of a sun setting/nighttime look so I used the Rich Sorbet PanPastels color palette.

Wildflower PanPastels7

Check out this video on how quick and easy you can make this card.

What I love most about using PanPastels is that since we have several color palettes to choose from and you really can make multiple cards with several different looks.

Don’t you just love the Wildflower stamp set!?!?
