Die:   All Aflutter DI-0223
Stamp:  Beautiful Happiness Stamp Set  SS-0374
Use Journey Craft Glue to adhere to card:  AD-0111

Journey Glaze AD-0002 and AD-0003 was used on part
of the butterflies to add shine & dimension.

These wonderful A2 card front size dies come in two pieces.  One is for a frame, one is for the design itself.   Cut the same way the Geo Burst Die is.   More information on the Geo Burst Die HERE.

Guest Designer: Joan Hardy


I'm so excited to share a card made by my friend, Joan Hardy.   She and I have known each other for over 12 years now.   She came over yesterday, and we spent the day being creative and chatting.   What an amazing day. 


UPDATE:   Artful Owl Stamp Set AT-004 (RETIRED)
       When this was originally posted I gave the wrong stamp set.

Joan used the owl from the Artful Owl Stamp Set and then colored it in with color pencils.   I really like the color combinations both for card stock and the owl itself.   Did you notice how the eyes of the owl just pop out!

She and her husband drove to Sedona last week.  She picked up some twigs and one of the twigs is glued to the card front for the owl to sit on.   The stamp branch image just blends right in.   Then to add a bit of embellishment she tied a bow with twine at the end of the twig.

Great card Joan!!!   Thank you for letting me share it on my blog.

Love the Fun Stampers Journey Silks

I took some photos of the Journey Silks to show you the type of bottles they come in and also created some color sheets to give you an idea of the look of the silk on Whip Cream Card Stock.   The Silks really have a shine to them.

  Metallic:




 Misc Colors:








Be Amazing: 






The Silks are what I used on the Splatter Technique that I showed samples of this and last week.   They do NOT have an odor, come in a finger nail polish size bottle, and each lid has its own brush attached.

NOTE:   The Silks are the same size bottles ... however the lids are different in heights and brush length.   The taller ones are ones that I purchased with I first started.   The Be Amazing Collection is the newest.   No matter the size of the cap/brush, you are still getting the same quality product.

Silks may be tapped or painted onto a project.  They can be used on a stamp (clean right afterwards).   They are fun to do drops of color on acrylic sheets, spritz water and then place your card stock on it (Splatter technique) to create beautiful backgrounds.   So many options.   I love the shine to them.

My Review:
I highly recommend this product.   I like it so much that this last month I bought all the colors I was missing, so currently have all colors offered (shown above).

Definitely wear an apron or craft clothes because there can be some splatters if you are tapping the brush.   I tend to hold the cap lid too tight when I tap the brush, so it doesn't always splatter the first time for me.   As soon as I relax my grip, that really seems to help.   I like to that I can just dab with the brush instead if I want or can use the brush to fill in an area that I feel needs a bit more of that color.

Updated Note: (8/26/2016) ... Before using, make sure lid is on tight then gently shake the bottle of Silk.   While it has been sitting, it will separate and will need to be mixed up (by shaking) before using.   You will probably hear a small ball in the bottle.   This helps in getting the separated solution off the base of the bottle.

Splatter Technique Background Using Fun Stampers Journey Silks - Day 3 of 3


It's been great sharing these Splatter Technique cards with you the last 3 days.  I hope that you will try this technique too.   Remember the directions are on my blog post August 22, 2016.

I honestly don't remember which Silks I used in this card.   I have them all and just starting putting drops of color down, then spritzing with water.   It just shows that having fun with color does usually give good results.

Did you notice the star like dots in a few spots?  That was where a bit of the silk was thicker, and while it was still wet I took a toothpick through it to create the look of a star.   If I had let it dry instead, it would of been a larger dot of color.   Was fun experimenting with it.

Our new Journey Brush Silver Card Stock CS-0135 is really nice.   I'm amazed at the shine to it.   Would be perfect for holiday cards.   It comes in packs of 10 sheets  8 1/2 x 11" for $12.95.  I used in it today's card for the sentiment.

Splatter Technique Background Using Fun Stampers Journey Silks - Day 1 of 3


A splatter technique background can be created using Fun Stampers Journey Silks, Re-Inkers, or Splashes.   It is so easy to do and really creates some interesting and unique backgrounds.   Fun Stampers Journey has 53 colors of re-inkers, 14 colors of Silks, and 17 colors of Splashes.   So many options, PLUS you can mix and match them too. 

1.  Put drops or splashes of color on an acetate clear sheet (like the stamp sets are attached to when you receive them). 
2.  Mist with water (our Media Mister TO-0121 is "PERFECT" for this step)
3.  Place card stock or Color Splash Sheet (JM-0076) over the top of the misted area.
     Now gently press down and smooth around the paper you are using.
4.  Gently lift up.  
5.  Want more color?   Just repeat the steps above with the same sheet of paper.
6.  Allow the paper to dry completely before using for your project.
NOTE:   Regular card stock will warp/curl more than the Color Splash Sheet will.  Color Splash Sheets are sheets made specifically for watercoloring.   After they are dry, I place them in between two of my large work pads I have and then add weigh to the top.   Works pretty well at flattening them out.   I have also found that using a bit more adhesive or White Liner Double Sided Tape helps in keeping the layer more flat too.

Make Lemonade Stamp Set from Fun Stampers Journey


Thought of my sister when I made this card.   Her favorite dessert was lemon meringue pie.

So many creative steps went into the making of this card.

First, I decided that I wanted to make my own background paper.   I took the lemon stamp from the Make Lemonade Stamp Set and randomly stamped the image on the Whip Cream Card Stock.

Next, I got out my Journey Color Splash Pencils and colored them in.   After coloring, I used a wet small tip brush (there is one included with the pencils) to blend and smooth out the coloring.

After allowing the background design to dry I attached the layers together using our Easy Glide Permanent Adhesive Runner.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set as the lemon design.   I stamped it on a piece of card stock that I had cut and used the "elements" to create a paper pierced look to it.    Dies:  Journey Rectangles.  It is a set of 12 ... 6 cutting die and 6 element dies.

The sentiment piece was "popped up" using Journey Foam Squares.   This adds depth and dimension to the card design.

I absolutely love the Slice-Fetti with its tiny pieces of fruit.   I used tweezers and Craft Glue to adhere them tot he card.    After gluing allow a few minutes to dry.

Winter Hills Die is Perfect for an Outdoor Camping Scene - Fun Stampers Journey

 I am having so much fun with the Winter Hills die.   Here is another example of a layered card.



The top card would be great with just a sentiment added in.  On the second card, I stamped the tent and the log fire from the Happy Camper Stamp Set.  The log fire was colored in with Journey Color Splash Watercolor pencils.

Technique:

Did you notice the shadow of a larger tree in the background?   That was created using the negative of the die cut.  I laid the negative image on my card base (Whip Cream Card Stock) and then I sponged (narrow Sofft Tool) the tree image in with Black Licorice PanPastels.  It is in the Party Pop PanPastel collection.  The sunset background was then created using PanPastels and the Sofft Tools.

Halloween Look For the Winter Hills Die by Fun Stampers Journey

I really like the versatility of the Winter Hills Die by Fun Stampers Journey.  It can be used for layering or for a tri-fold card.    Today I want to share with you two versions of the same card to create a ghostly Halloween themed card.  This card is layered.








I liked both versions, but I really think adding in the log fire (Happy Camper Stamp Set) added to the look of this card.

I used PanPastels for the moon, background, and even for the ghostly characters.   The ghostly characters were created by stamping the images with Clear Pigment Ink, and then using the Brushed Silver PanPastels over the top.   Really makes the stamped image stand out.

The log fires were stamped, then colored in using Journey Splash Pencils. 

Journey Foam Squares used on the different layers for dimension.

Reminder if you do this on a black card base to line the inside with a lighter color so you can write a note to the recipient of your card.

Fun Stampers Journey Bloom Box - August 2016

Receiving my Fun Stampers Journey Bloom Box each month is something that I really look forward to.   It is a great product and not only guarantees me four (4) fun projects to work on but also give me a brand new stamp set each month too.  

Item #: KO-0001      Your Price: $24.95  (plus tax & shipping)
This is a six (6) month subscription which automatically renews until you cancel.   Your very first Bloom Box will the the kit featured that month.   So if you sign up now, you will receive the August 2016 kit as your first kit.  Kit includes everything you need EXCEPT for inks and adhesives.

Here's a video I did last week when I received my August Bloom Box:
If you are reading this via e-mail please go to YouTube to watch my video. 
Here's the link:  https://youtu.be/Vt0hC9WBNLY




Richard Garay, President & Co-Founder of Fun Stampers Journey also does a video each month that gives us some tips for creating our cards.   Here's the link for his video if you would like to watch it too:   https://youtu.be/rKG4i_MaBMg

As I state in my video, even though I am a Coach, I don't have all the products.  So when my kits arrives I may or may not follow the directions that are given.   Also I like to step outside the box and make the cards my own too by putting my own spin on them.

Here's the examples they give us for this month's Bloom Box:


The following 4 cards are the cards that I made from this kit:

I used my Color Burst Pencils to color in the moose. 
Journey Color Burst JM-0077

I switched out the layout and stamps on this one.
 I added in a log fire from the Happy Camper SS-0133
Set of 15 stamps.
Colored fire in with Color Splash JM-0078

 I used the Color Splash Watercolor Pencils to color elk in.
Journey Color Splash Pencils JM-0078

This one I made quite a few changes on.
It was a square card, so I trimmed it down to fit an A2
envelope in height.  
Since the sentiment was "Heads you Win", I added in 
a quarter with the heads side up.
Used silks to add accent to the card too.
Dark Roast Silks IP-0095
Cranberry Bliss Silks IP-0094

Fun Stampers Journey Geo Burst Die - Day 3 of 3

Today, let's think outside the box.   The Geo Burst die is gorgeous as a decorative panel or card front.   The more I looked at it, the more I realized it could be cut apart too and made into other designs:   flowers and borders or ???

Here's a couple of designs I made by cutting the Geo Burst design apart:

Just a reminder what the full panel looks like.
I was able to cut two full flowers and a border out of
each panel.   I'm sure there are more
combinations too. 
This sample is from yesterday's blog post.   This 
card stock was not used in the cards below.

Love the look of the lacy flowers and border.
The Rainbow Drops adds a sparkle to the card too.  

Fun to take some our Fun Stampers Journey
Printed Paper to add an accent border to the card.
Rainbow Drops added (upper left of card)
and for the center of each flower.


The rainbow drops come in their own hard plastic container that has 
sliding locks on the front.
768 pieces, 6 colors, 3 sizes of each color.


My Review of Rainbow Drops:

The Rainbow Drops were  in a previous mini catalog from Fun Stampers Journey.   They were so popular that they were brought back as a item in our new catalog last month.   I really like them.   They are easy to use.  Just add a drop of craft ink, glue dot, or Journey Glaze on the back to adhere them.   They have such sparkle to them.   The container of them costs $24.95.   Remember, it contains 768 pieces, 6 colors, and 3 sizes of each color.   So really a good price for this box of embellishments.
