For You Die Set Used For Birthday Card - Fun Stampers Journey Sneak Peek

Yesterday was Hal's birthday.  Of course, I needed to make him a card to help celebrate his special day.  This is the card I made for him.  

Fun Stampers Journey Products Used:

For You Die Set DI-0252 Set of 5 dies (Available August 1, 2017)
Pool Play Sparkle Tape AC-0260
Embroidered Greetings Stamp Set SS-0507
Mirror Gold Card Stock CS-0136  Pack of 5 sheets  ... 8 1/2" x 11"
Sparkle Silk IP-0126
Whip Cream Card Stock CS-0040
Huckleberry Fusion Ink Pad   IP-0035
Huckleberry Fusion Card Stock CS-0015
Journey Gel Press JM-0107
Brayer TO-0087
White Liner Double Sided Adhesive Tape AD-0001
Journey Foam Squares AD-0084 (small) and AD-9985 (medium)


Did you notice the unique background behind the sentiment and the gift packages?   It was created using our Gel Press, Huckleberry Ink Pad, and Sparkle Silk.   Here's a close-up of it before I made it into the card:

It really reminded me of peacock feathers.   I inked the Gel Press with Huckleberry Fusion Ink Pad then flicked on Sparkle Silk.  The Sparkle Silk causes a separation of color when applied.   It is so unique and so beautiful.

Richard Garay (President and Co-Founder of Fun Stampers Journey) did a live feed on Facebook the other day showing how to do this technique.   Here's the link:
https://www.facebook.com/rgsignature/videos/295328050930368/

I am having so much fun with the Gel Press.   Learning more and more as time goes on.   It is wonderful that we can use our inks, our liquid colors, our silks, our acrylic paints and so much more to add depth and dimension to our projects.   Truly a MUST HAVE item for your craft supplies.

Step by Step Video Tutorial on Creating a Coils & Curls Card Coloring With Dauber Dowels - Fun Stampers Journey Products


Learn today how to create this beautiful butterfly card by viewing my step by step video tutorial.  Coloring has been done using Dauber Dowels and True Color Fusion Ink.

If you are reading this via e-mail, the direct link to this video is:
https://youtu.be/TI0gHXmEXek






When you are stamping and using the daubers to color in, it is much better to color the area first and then stamp the image over the top.   If you stamp, then use the dauber you do take the risk of the stamped image bleeding a bit into the color.   So for this card I did the dauber coloring first, then stamped, than fussy cut out.   I did fussy cutting because colors outside of the line ... but this would of happened whichever way I used the dauber.

Card base can be color of your choice.  Same with background and camera colors.   Isn't it great fun to have choices!

We do carry replacement caps for the Journey Glaze if you need them:
AD-0112  package of 3 tips that will fit both the 2 oz and the 4 oz Journey Glaze.
