Did you get your Mystery Box yet??

mystery_box_600

There is still time to get in on the Mystery 2.0 Promotion.

1.31.18mystery_box_updated

Three reasons why I love the Mystery 2.0 Promotion:

  1. If you are new to stamping/paper crafting it is a great way to build up your stash for a reasonable price.
  2. If you never had tried FSJ products, it is a great way to try them out without making a big investment.
  3. Who doesn’t love Happy Mail when you don’t know what goodies will be in the box.

And if you order the Magical Mystery Box (MB-0002) you have a chance to find a Golden Unicorn!

May all your hand-made creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.

Uplift Die Set | Make A Wish

I love the Make A Wish Bundle (BD-0270) and the Gift Slider Die Set (DI-0384)!!!

Uplift Birthday

I cut a piece from the Birthday Pop Prints (PP-0052) and adhered it to a Black Licorice (CS-0003) card panel onto a Huckleberry Fusion (CS-0015) card base.  Using the Uplift Die Set (DI-0384), I die cut some pieces from Limeade Splash (CS-0020) and the Birthday Pop Prints (PP-0052).  I added some Black Licorice Twine (AC-0004) to the ends of the balloons before popping them up on the card front using Foam Squares (AD-0085).

The Make A Wish was stamped in Black Licorice Ink (IP-0041) onto a piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) card stock and cut out using the coordinating die.  I added some Turbo Teal (IP-0119) Silk to this piece before popping it up on the card with Foam Squares.

I needed to make this card into a gift card holder so I pulled out the Gift Slider Die Set.  However, I didn’t think the bow went with the balloon theme so I had to improvise.  [Have you ever had to do improvise on a card?  Drop me a comment and let me know.]

Uplift Birthday2

I decided to use the same paper and the Uplift Die set to cut out a balloon that would be big enough to cover the bow.  Added some Black Licorice Twine and using Foam Squares (AD-0084) popped the balloon on to the edges of the bow!!

Here’s to improvising!!!

Wedding Bliss | Gift Slider Die

The other day I posted a card using Cranberry Bliss (CS-0090) card stock and Turbo Teal ink (IP-0116) I had a piece left over and thought I would make a wedding card. Here is the link to the card from the other day that shows how I did the background.     To that base using Foam Squares (AD-0085) I popped up a heart using our Heart Felt Dies (DI-0033) and Heart Piercing Elements (DI-0096) from Mirror Silver (CS-0137).  On a piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040), I stamped Wedding Bliss (AT-0170) in Black Licorice ink (IP-0041) and cut it out.

Wedding Bliss

Using Sparkle Silk (IP) and a Small Blending Brush (TO-0097), I colored in the layers on the cake to give it some sparkle.  The Wedding Bliss image was popped up using Foam Squares and a piece of Black Licorice Twine (AC-0004) was added to the back.  I added some Special Celebrations Sequins (AC-0115) using Glue Dots (AD-0083).  I still thought it needed something so I added a Heart from the Fire and Ice (AC-0346) [these are part of our Bloom Benefits] [The Love Filled embellishments (AC-0345) would also look nice on this card – I will list them in the supply list below].

Wedding Bliss2

For the inside I used the Gift Slider Die Set (DI-0384) and cut that out of Mirror Silver (CS-0137) to keep with the wedding theme.

Dandelion Wishes – Birthday

I can’t get enough of the Dandelion Wishes (SS-0497) stamp set.  I don’t know about you but sometimes my craft space is not always organized and I will admit that I had lost this stamp set.  No, not just one stamp, the whole stamp set.  I shouldn’t say lost, I should say misplaced.  Well I found it (3 months later)!!!  I just had to make a card with it in case it went missing again.

Dandelion Wishes

Using Lovely Blue (IP-0075) and the Ink Splat (AT-0108) ATS, I randomly stamped a piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) card stock.  I wanted something in the background that did not over power the background.  Then using Pool Play (IP-0051) I stamped some of the images from the Dandelion Wishes stamp set.  I stamped a few more images and the sentiment in Denim Days (IP-0010).  I added some Silver Silk (IP-0090) and Sparkle Silk (IP-0126).

The Whip Cream (CS-0040) panel was adhered to a piece of Bush Silver (CS-0135) before adhering to the Denim Days (CS-0082) card base with Foam Squares (AD-0085).

For the inside I stamped it the same way as the front except I only added the Sparkle Silk and did not add the Silver Silk.

I love adding Sparkle Silk (IP-0126)

What?!?!? – Turbo Teal Ink and Cranberry Bliss Card Stock

Sometimes the creative mind takes over and you just have to go with it!!!

I wanted to make some birthday cards to have on hand and I know I wanted to use the Ink Splat (AT-0108) ATS.  I pulled out a piece of Cranberry Bliss (CS-0090) card stock and for whatever reason reached for my Turbo Teal Ink Pad (IP-0116).  Well I have to say I love how it turned out!

I adhered the Cranberry Bliss piece to a piece of Black Licorice (CS-0003) and then adhered it to a Whip Cream (CS-0040) card base.

Make a Wish

Using Silver Embossing Powder (IP-0100) I heat embossed the Make-A-Wish ATS (AT-0246) onto Black Licorice (CS-0003) and cut it out with the coordinating die (DI-0355) or you can buy it as a bundle (BD-0270).  I then popped it up using Foam Squares (AD-0085).  I added some Special Celebrations Sequins (AC-0115) using Glue Dots (AC-0083)Journey Glaze (AD-0003) was applied to the cup of the sequin.  I wanted to try it.  It doesn’t change the look but it changed the texture when you touch them.  Makes them rounded.

Make a Wish2 copy

For the inside I stamped it the same way as the card front but used the Gift Slider Die Set (DI-0384) so that you can add a gift card.  I will be posting a couple other cards that I made using this die set throughout the week.  I wasn’t sure if I really needed this die in my stash or not but I have to say that I am so glad that I purchased it.  It comes in handy for gift card giving and I love the uniqueness of it.

May all your hand-made creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.

Happy gift card giving!
