Small Things | Thanks

I love Butterflies as much as I love Sunflowers.  The images in the Small Things Bundle (BD-0373) are just gorgeous.  I love the different sizes and designs of the Butterfly images you can almost see them fluttering by.

Small Things Thanks

For this card I stamped a Whip Cream (CS-0040) panel with the images from the Small Things Bundle (BD-0373) in the following inks:  Cool Pool (IP-0074), Pretty Amethyst (IP-0018), and Watermelon Fusion (IP-0027).  On a scrap piece of Whip Cream card stock, I stamped one of the images in Black Licorice (IP-0041) and cut it out with the coordinating die.

Using the Journey Circles (DI-0039), I cut out a piece of Vellum (PP-0044) [we also have our Vellum Designer Prints (PP-0008)] and popped it up on the card front before popping up the Black Licorice Butterfly on top of that using Foam Squares (AD-0085).  Then adhered the Whip Cream panel to a piece of Sweet Berry (CS-0034) and then onto a Turbo Teal (CS-0127) card base.

Small Things Thanks2

Added some of the Classic Elegance Tape (AC-0291) and Sweet Romance (AC-0290) [Sweet Romance is a Bloom Benefit – you can get it for free with an order of $100 or more].  On another piece of Whip Cream, I stamped the Thanks from the Inside &  Out (SS-0576) stamp set and the cut it out using our Detail Shears (TO-0063) and popped it up onto the card front using Foam Squares (AD-0084).

For the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Inside & Out (SS-0576) stamp set in Black Licorice ink on a piece of Whip Cream card stock.

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

Just Because

There are many reasons why I love Fun Stampers Journey (FSJ).  The biggest for me is the quality/selection of projects available.  The second biggest is the training.  They are always teaching new techniques.

During FSJ Presents in December, we made 4 projects, got to play with some of the new products that are in the Bloom This Way Trends Mini for 2018, got a sneak peak at the Trends Mini and was offered bundles that previewed some of the products that we got to order and play with before the Bloom This Way Trends Mini went live.  And do you know what the best part of this is…..FSJ Presents is not only for FSJ coaches but also FSJ customers!!!  Be sure to subscribe to my blog so you can be the first to know about the next FSJ Presents.  You can experience FSJ Presents from the comfort of your home or get a group of crafty friends together and make it a crafting with friends event.

Now onto the project.

Just Because FSJ Presents

A piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) card stock was cut out using the Journey Rectangles (DI-0041).  Using the Spring Bontanicals (SS-0544) stamp set the Lemon Drop (IP-0043) floral image was stamped onto the card stock and using a sticky note a mask was created before stamping the other floral images from this set in Watermelon Fusion (IP-0027), and Kiwi Slice (IP-0024).  The sentiment came from the Everyday Script (SS-0543) and was stamped in Black Licorice (IP-0041).    To add more depth to the floral images, the Rich Sorbets PanPastels (JM-0082) and the Journey Sofft Tools (JM-0098) were used to build up the color in the darker areas of the images.

Using Mirror Gold (CS-0136) some of the elements were cut out from the Romantic Blooms Die (DI-0345).  On a scrap piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) card stock, the feather was stamped in Black Licorice (IP-0041) and the flower was stamped using Tangerine Fusion (IP-0005).  These pieces were cut out using the coordinating dies.

The Mirror Gold elements, Feather and Tangerine Fusion flower were popped up using Foam Squares (AD-0084).

Before adhering the Whip Cream panel to the Watermelon Fusion (CS-0039) card base, Classic Elegance Journey Tape (AC-0291), Simply Gold Journey Tape (AC-0294), I Heart Clip (AC-0261) and Journey Twine Licorice Twist (AC-0267) were added to the card panel.  Finally Fashion Gold (AC-0292) and Black Licorice Silk (IP-0143) were added to finish of the card.
