Hexi Strip Die| Small Things

Have you ever thought to die cut both sides of your card base?  I didn’t.  But at a retreat I went to last month, we made this card.  I love the look of it and can’t wait to try it with the other dies that Fun Stampers Journey has.

Hexi Small Things

Using a Whip Cream (CS-0040) card base, you will run the Hexi Strip (DI-0265) die through your die cut machine.  You will need to run it through several times.  [Be sure to keep the Hexagon pieces that come out from the die – you can use them on another craft project].  Using Easy Glide (AD-0081) adhere a piece of Pumpkin Bread (CS-0098) to the panel that is not cut out.

Hexi Small Things2

Using the Timeless Folilage (SR-0036) Steel Rule Die, cut out a piece of Fresh Forest (CS-0011).  On a piece of Whip Cream cardstock, stamp the Butterfly image from the Small Things Bundle (BD-0373) in Black Licorice ink (IP-0041) and cut it out using the coordinating die.  You can color in your butterfly image using any method, I used Liquid Color.  Attached the butterfly using Foam Squares (AD-0084 or AD-0085).

Hexi Small Things4

Emboss the sentiment from the Small Things Bundle using Gold Embossing Powder (IP-010) on a piece of Vellum (PP-0044).   Adhere this to the card front using Glue Dots (AD-0083).

Have fun creating your own version!

Buttons, Buttons, Buttons

Fun Stampers Journey has a lot of different buttons to choose from for your paper crafting projects.  I am in the process of switching my craft space to a different room and while I was in the process of moving things from one room to the other {and to my surprise}, I came across these fun B&W Buttons (AC-0225).

I wish I would have come across them before Father’s Day.  I think they would have been great on a Father’s Day card.  But I always try to look at the bright side, I can make it now and be ahead of the game for next year!!

Be sure to check out the other buttons we offer.  Some are retiring so you can get them at a great price.

Denim Prints Tape | Happy Birthday

In this post I really want to focus on the Denim Prints Tape (AC-0313) by Fun Stampers Journey.  In this set you get 3 coordinating tapes. What is so great about them are not only the patterns but how much you get.

Denim Prints Tape Happy Birthday4

I made 76, yes 76 cards using one of the rolls from the Denim Prints Tape (AC-0313).  I still have 2 rolls left.  How awesome is that!!! [I am sure the outcome may differ based on card design, etc.].

Denim Prints Tape Happy Birthday

On a piece of Whip Cream cardstock (CS-0040) I stamped the sentiment Happy Birthday To You in Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink.  This sentiment comes from the Celebration Script (SS-0540).  [There are also coordinating dies available and you can buy it in a bundle to save some money.]

Denim Prints Tape Happy Birthday1A

I added a piece from the Through the Year Prints (PP-0050) to the bottom of this panel and then added the Denim Prints Tape (AC-0313).

Denim Prints Tape Happy Birthday2

This panel was then adhered to a Whip Cream card base using Easy Glide (AD-0081).

Very simple and quick card to put together.  I love the images from the Through the Year Prints paper and really thought they deserved to be center stage on this card along with the Denim Prints Tape.

You Inspire Me | Blue Skies | Eclipse Card

I have never made an eclipse card.  I got to make one at the craft retreat I was at a bit ago and fell in love with the design.  It is so crisp and clean looking but yet has depth/dimension.

Eclipse You Inspire Me

On a Whip Cream (CS-0040) card base, a piece of Denim Days (CS-0082) was adhered using Easy Glide (AD-0081) to the card base.

Eclipse You Inspire Me2

On a piece of Whip Cream the imaged from the Blue Skies stamp set (SS-0574) was stamped in Denim Days ink (IP-0010) as well as the sentiment.  Then using the Hexagons Dies (DI-0290) you center them on the image and then cut them out.  The main layer is adhered using Easy Glide (AD-0081), the first die cut piece is popped up using Foam Squares (AD-0084), the second piece is adhered using Easy Glide and the last piece is adhered using Foam Squares (AD-0085).

Eclipse You Inspire Me4

Fashion Silver (AC-0293) was added to finish off the card.

Eclipse You Inspire Me3

I really enjoyed learning how to make the eclipse card. If you haven’t tried it, I hope you give it a try.

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

Please leave me a comment if you would like me to do a video showing you how to do an eclipse card.

Happy crafting!!
