Hello Friend

As a crafter I have a ton of ideas always floating around in my head for card designs, color combos or new ways to use products.  From time to time I get crafters block.  Does this ever happen to you?  Fun Stampers Journey always comes to the rescue.  As a coach we have access to monthly projects with a supply list and instructions.   So when I was preparing for an upcoming class and I needed one more card design and the creative juices weren’t flowing, I did not fret!  I went to my Coach Dashboard and pulled up this gorgeous creation!

Hello Friend3

On a panel of Pomegranate Splash (CS-0027) card stock the Create A Dot (SS-0438) stamp was stamped at an angle using Whip Cream (IP-0009) ink.  Electric Lime (IP-0108) and Citrus Cooler (IP-0093) Silks were added to the panel before it was adhered to a Sweet Pear (CS-0095) card base.

Hello Friend2

On a piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) card stock, Hello Friend from the  Greeting Trends (SS-0166) stamp set was stamped in Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink and then cut out using the Journey Circles (DI-0039).  Using a piece of Orange Creamsicle (CS-0024) card stock and the Everyday Tags (DI-0255), a tag was cut out and popped up on an angle on the Pomegranate Splash card front.  A piece of Journey Girl Stripes Ribbon (AC-0158) was adhered to the tag using Easy Glide (AD-0081) .  [I have to be honest here, in the catalog I didn’t really care for the Journey Girl Stripes.  When I got it in my order, boy did my view change.  I love it and I think I might start hoarding it.]

The Hello Friend was adhered to the card front using Foam Squares (AD-0085).  Then using the Small Dauber Dowel (TO-0137) and Orange Creamsicle Ink (IP-0015), color was added to the edge of the petals of the Spring Kisses (AC-0303).  These were then adhered to the card front using Glue Dots (AD-0083). 

Hello Friend

To finish off the card Special Celebration Sequins (AC-0115) were added to the center of the flowers and card front  using Glue Dots.  Licorice Twist Twine (AC-0267) was added around the front of the card and tied in a bow.

Hello Friend3

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.

We Have Great Chemistry

I finally got the chance to play around and experiment with our Liquid Color.  I was totally in the crafting zone making this card!

Chemistry

I pulled out the following colors [we have many more] from our Liquid Color Collection:  Cool Pool (IP-0140), Riverstone (IP-0138), Watermelon Fusion (IP-0142), Lemon Drop (IP-0132) and a Media Mister (TO-0121).  I put a couple of drops of each color onto a craft mat [I would have used our Gel Press (JM-0107) but I am in the middle of re-organizing my craft space and I wasn’t sure what box I put it in].  The I sprayed a couple of spritzes of water.  I took a piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) card stock and picked up the different colors randomly.  [This technique would be great to do with our Color Splash Sheets (JM-0076)].

Chemistry2

Before you start stamping , you want to make sure your card stock is dry.  To speed up this process I used my Heat Tool (TO-0083).  I stamped some of the images from the Perfect Atoms Bundle (BD-0285) randomly in Watermelon Fusion (IP-0027), Turbo Teal (IP-0116) and Black Licorice (IP-0041) onto the card panel.

On a piece of Whip Cream card stock, I stamped the beaker images using Black Licorice ink and cut them out using the coordinating dies.  Using a Small Blending Brush (TO-0097) and the Liquid Color, I colored in  some of the beakers.  For the large beaker, I used a Small Blending Brush and our Sparkle Silk (IP-0126) to color in the liquid in that image.

Chemistry4

On a piece of Black Licorice card stock, I used White Embossing Powder (IP-0098) to emboss the sentiment.

Then it was time to assemble the card.  Using Easy Glide (AD-0081), I adhered the stamped panel to a piece of Candy Apple card stock (CS-0007) and adhered that to a Whip Cream card base.  Using Foam Squares (AD-0084 and AD-0085)  I popped up the beakers and the sentiment.  As a final touch I added some hearts from Fire & Ice (AC-0346) [these are one of the Bloom Benefits that we offer and you can get them Free with an order of $50 or more – for a complete list of Bloom Benefits  – check out the annual and trends mini catalog (s) – they are shown in the beginning of those catalogs – to view the catalogs you can click on the tabs above].

I had such a blast experimenting with our Liquid Color.  So much fun!!
