Simply Gold Birthday Card

Oh my gosh.  When I saw this quick video on the Fun Stampers Journey Blog I had to make this card.  Let me tell you super, super quick and easy.  Only 1 stamp and as I was making it I thought this is a great way to use up those pieces of craft tape that might not be big enough for a full project.

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.
