Retirement List Announced - Fun Stampers Journey Products


While supplies last - some are limited quantities.

Fun Stampers Journey has just announced their retirement list of products.   Sales pricing starts on May 1 and goes through June 30, 2018 while supplies last.   If there is an item you absolutely have to have, you can order it now (at full price).   They have had some items that have already sold out within hours of the announcement.
To view the full list (pdf file), you can CLICK HERE.
It shows the items listed by catalog and then page number.   

It is sad to see some of our favorite items retire, but the good side to this is that means new products will be coming our way as of July 1.

The full jewelry line is retiring!!!  That is one of the reasons our retirement list is longer than normal.  Some amazing deals on all of the retirement items.

Inside & Out Stamp Set - Hats Off Die Set - Star-Dom Die Set AND FSJ Silks are on Sale

Yesterday I was inspired to create a graduation card.   Seems impossible that June is just around the corner and that means graduation for many is just around the corner too.   You still have time to order supplies needed for graduation cards especially our wonderful new Hats Off Die DI-0441 that creates the graduation cap and tassel shown in the card below. 


I wanted a card that was unique and had the feeling of celebration.   I chose a bright card base color (Beach Breeze) then accented with Brushed Silver, Black Licorice, and Lemon Drop.    The background of the card base was splattered with SEVEN (7) different colors of our Silks.  I love the look of sparkle to it and the look of confetti falling. 

Don't forget that our Silks and Splashes are 20% off through the end of April.   Great time to stock up.

The small faux leather stars are a Bloom Benefit called Bloom Stars.  It is in our main catalog and is one of the free option for a $50 order.    The stars were a perfect fit for the stars I die cut and used the piercing element die on.   The Bloom Stars have a large glue dot on the back of them so adhere securely to the other stars.    Here's a close-up of the star:



Depth and dimension were added by applying foam squares underneath each item.

Thinking Outside the Box - Using the Vagabond Chips Container - Fun Stampers Journey Products


One of our brand new products this quarter is the Vagabond Chips AC-0354.   It contains 45 pieces.  There are 9 designs with 5 of each design included.

When I first got the chips (they are chipboard), I was trying to think of ways to use them on cards.   Then I started to about the box itself and what I could use it for.   It's a little larger than 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 overall in dimension.   Each box is about 1 1/4 x 1 1/4.   What could I make with it.   I knew I wanted to paint it. So I got out my Whip Cream Acrylic Paint and set to work.


If I do it again and plan to let the paint show, I will sand the edges of the container first to give it a smoother appearance.   The sponge brush was OK, but I found that I liked using a regular paint brush better for this.  It allowed me to get into the corners much easier.


Idea #1:  I glued in punched out squares (1 1/4 x 1 1/4 ... that had to be slightly trimmed to fit) of Black Licorice Card Stock.   Used our Journey Craft Glue for that.  Thought the buttons looked cute.    Felt I could add in flowers or others things into the little box areas.



Idea #2:  The kid in me came out with this idea.   Why not make it a Tic-Tac-Toe Board using our Vagabuttons.  Ten buttons would be needed.   The Vagabuttons I believe are wood.  One side is plain, the other side printed.   Makes for a compact playing board, just add some type of drawstring bag for it to be kept in.


Idea #3:  Created a travel theme shadow box using one of each design of the chips.   I left them plain, but they could be easily colored in with Silks, Splashed, Acrylic Paint, Re-Inkers, or even our Ink Pads.   The sky is the limit.


Idea #4 and the design I made permanent (I only had one box to work with):  I wanted a cute shadow box that was cheerful, bright, and unique.   I think I hit the nail on the head with this one.   The Vagabond Chips were colored in with Silks.   The flowers were cut out from the Blue Skies Stamp Set and colored in with our Color Burst Pencils.   I also coated them with Journey Glaze and Sparkle Cuts.   Each one of the Vagabuttons was coated with Sparkle Silk.  Then when dried, I added in the twine and/or thread bows.

The Vagabond Chips and Flowers were raised up using Journey Foam Squares.   I also used Journey Craft Glue to adhere the buttons in place.

The box was a bit too plain for me, so I added in Gingham Lavender Fusion Ribbon (using White Liner Tape to adhere to the box).   Accented the box with ribbons I made and also Rainbow Drops.   Ribbons and Rainbow Drops were attached with Glue Dots.   Since I had carried the ribbon to the back of the box, I decided to cover it with a square of card stock to give it a finished look.  A small hook could be added to it.  I had a small wooden easel that I set my shadow box on.

What would you do with the Vagabond Chips container?   Wouldn't it make a great gift for someone!

Hero City Die - Follow Your Dreams Hot Air Balloons - Fun Stampers Journey Products



I have to be honest, I never wanted the Hero City UNTIL I saw the Follow Your Dream (hot air balloon embellishments).   When I saw them I could envision the card in my mind.   I had to have both items!!!!

The card went together easily.   I used retired printed paper that I had for the background, but you could easily used Splashes, PanPastels, Fusion Inks to create the background yourself. 

Card base is Lemon Drop.
City is Black Licorice.
Ink for Sentiment is Black Licorice.

I adhered the background to the card base with our Journey Craft Glue.   Then cut out the City Die and placed it on the background with the Craft Glue also.    The hot air balloon is already layered and has a large foam square on the back.   Also used the foam squares on the sentiment when I placed it on the card.

The inside of the card could be left black for a handwritten note or stamped inside too.
