FMS197 Bloom with heart!

Good morning,

I whipped up an another super cute card using a sketch from:  “Freshly Made Sketches,” FMS197 .

I liked their sketch so much, that I made another card using it.

Here is the sketch:

FMS197

Quote from FMS: “Each week, one member of our design team creates a sketch for you to try, the twist is to keep your project clean-lined and fresh!”

Challenging myself again with keeping it simply fresh, here is my card:

create-with-heart-fms197

The name of this stamp set is “Bloom with Heart,” it is a free stamp set from “Fun Stampers Journey.”

The heart stamp was stamped with Fun Stampers Journey’s True Color Fusion ink called “Strawberry Cream.” The sentiment was stamped using “Candy Apple” item# IP-0017.

The heart cut-out was made by using Fun Stampers Journey’s Heart Dies called “Heart-Felt” item# DI-0033

I used a different a design from the same fun paper pack “Journey Basics Brights” 12×12 Paper Pack item # PP-0014.

Bloom-with-Heart-both

I got this stamp set for free at the Scrapbook EXPO, from the Fun Stampers Journey’s booth. They are doing free make and takes at all of the EXPOs. I had the privilege of working the show when they came to Orlando Florida in March 2015.

FMS197 Fresh Sketched card! Fun Stampers Journey!

Good morning,

I whipped up an uber cute card using a Freshly Made Sketches,” sketch. FMS197 

Quote from FMS: “Each week, one member of our design team creates a sketch for you to try, the twist is to keep your project clean-lined and fresh!”

So the key word her is clean-lined, your card is to look fresh and simple but with pizzazz. I will tell you that is sorta hard for me. I am not into several layers of lace and flowers, even though I love looking at those types of cards. But to create a simple but not simple card is a challenge indeed. So I challenged myself and here is what I came up with.

The sketch:

FMS197

My card:

bloom-heart-2nd

I just love this sentiment!

The name of this stamp set is “Bloom with Heart.” I got this stamp set for free at the Scrapbook EXPO, from the Fun Stampers Journey’s booth. They currently doing free make and takes at all of the EXPOs. I had the privilege of working the show when they came to Orlando Florida in March 2015.

I stamped the back ground flower stamp using Fun Stampers Journey’s True Color Fusion ink called “Banana Cream” item # IP-0046. On top of that I stamped the sentiment with “Tangerine Fusion.” item # IP-0005.

The card base is “Tangerine Fusion” item #CS-0036 cardstock. The printed paper is called “Journey Basics Brights” 12×12 Paper Pack item # PP-0014. The banner is the back side of the flower print.

For the square I used the die from Fun Stampers Journey that comes with piercing dies called “Journey Squares” item# DI-0038.

And if your going to mail a card this type is the best, there isn’t anything to get caught on the Post Office’s machine.

Thank you for stopping by and Thank you for your comments. Stay Crafty my Friends!

KOTM time! Selfie time! Mom and Richard Selfie!

Good morning Friends,

I am back from the Fun Stampers Journey convention, and to get in the mood for some crafting I pulled out my June Kit of the Month. I am really eager to share this with you all, I had a really fun time creating this card!

Here is a photo of the entire KOTM:

June-kotm

I have created one so far, here is my KOTM card:

June-2-of-1

Richard Garay (co-owner of FSJ) came to my area, Orlando for the Scrapbook EXPO. I had the uber pleasure of working with him and his crew that day. My mom came out to support us and of course she had to do a “Selfie” with Richard! With the help of my mom we were able to make a photo similar to the photo in the instruction sheet.

selfie card

Now, of course you do not have to do this when you get your Kit of the Month in the mail. I did it for fun! Yes, that is my mom with Richard Garay.

Here is a closer look at the stamps and embllies that come with the kit:

June-1-of-1

The instruction sheet does call for the use of some Journey Glaze, I just added the Journey Sparkle Dust because it was sitting there 🙂 “Journey Glaze is a fusion between a glaze and a resin, combining the benefits of both. Use to add dimension to your projects or use as an adhesive to adhere glitter or other embellishments.

Thank you for your visit and for your comments. If you would like to order you can go to:

Or leave me a message with your email so I can contact you.

May’s Kit Cards!

Good afternoon Friends,

I would like to share with you some cards I created using Fun Stampers Journey’s Kit of the Month.

Below is the flyer from FSJ:

May-2015-KOTM

This is what you get in your Kit of the Month:

May3

Pre-cut 80 lb. card stock, embellishments, and instruction sheets on how to create four beautiful cards. Not to mention a complete red rubber stamp set.

Here are the cards that I made:

May-card-1-p3

This one they had us using the sentiment stamp on the “Banana Cream” CS Item #: CS-0087, with “Pineapple Smoothie” ink Item #: IP-0014. I think is a really neat idea!!

I added “Journey Glaze” Item #: AD-0002, and “Journey Sparkle Dust” Item #: AC-0013, to the flowers. (These does not come in the KOTM.)

May-card-2

In the instructions, they said to use “Gold Silk” Item #: AC-0018, well I could not find my Gold, so I used “Bronze Silk” Item #: AC-0020. The Journey Silks add a shimmery color splash to your projects.

I also used “Journey Glaze” Item #: AD-0002, and “Journey Sparkle Dust” Item #: AC-0013, to the flowers.

May-card-3rd-2015

I also used “Journey Glaze” Item #: AD-0002, and “Journey Sparkle Dust” Item #: AC-0013, to the flowers.

When I did this card, it too asked for the “Gold Silk” Item #: AC-0018, however I used a Dyulsion spry ink in “Sunflower.” The instructions called for “River Stone” ink, but I used “Green Olive” ink for the sentiment. I personally liked it better for this. I really like how they showed us to stamp the double flower stamp with “Citrus Cooler” ink Item #: RI-0047, then pop up the single flower stamp.

mothersday-card-for-donna-2

Here is the last KOTM card. I followed the instructions all the way, until the center sentiment. However, I did use the 2 pieces of card stock that was provided for the center. Instead of stamping the “Live in full bloom,” I used an old Mother’s Day stamp I have. (Company’s name is no longer visible to give credit.) I used “Bronze Silk” Item #: AC-0020, instead of the gold.

So there you have it, as you can see you can follow the instruction sheets or do your own twist. I always keep my sheets, they have provided me with inspiration for other cards.

Here is the flyer for the colors used in these cards:

May-KOTM-FYI

Like the needed Mother’s Day card above, (I gave to my step-mom) I need to make another Mother’s Day card for my mom:

moms-mothersday-card-2015

With my own supplies I created this card. And you can see I drew inspiration from  May’s Kit of the Month set.

I have colored all of my flowers with Copics, you can use any type of medium you wish. You can even use our ink pads to color with.

Mothers-day-by-Leia-2015

This card here was created by my granddaughter with the help of my mom. They used a blue’ish heat embossing powder, then my granddaughter colored in the flowers with watercolors. (Great Grandma fussy cut the flowers out.) They added chunky glitter to the center. This really is a stunning card from a 3 1/2 year old.

If you would like to order this set then go to www.FunStampersJourney.com/96  Look up top for a button called “Kit of Month” it’s in between the button “Create” and “Catalog.”

FSJSC#4, Rosie’s Bliss, Get well soon!

Good morning Friends,

I have a Fun Stampers Journey card to share, I have created it for a friend that fell back into his boat while trying to exit it, and got his foot caught and broke both right ankle bones. He has surgery yesterday, they put pins, screws, plates and what ever they do?

I make the card following the Sketch from the challenge blog called “http://creativebloomsjourney.blogspot.com/”   Here is the sketch:

FSJSC4 May 2015

And I made this card for Rose’s Facebook group challenge called “One Journey Coach’s Challenge.” the theme this week is to use “Circles,” and of course to use only Fun Stampers Journey products.  (Follow the link above, to Rose’s FB group.)

Here is my “Get well card.”

dots-challenge

The printed paper was a freebie in February for a qualifying order.  It is for order. It’s called “Black and White” Item# PP-0002. In this paper pack you get 24 sheets double sided: 6 designs, 4 of each, acid-free, lignin-free and archival.

I also used scraps from the printed paper pack called “New Day,” Item #: PP-0004.

I used “Journey Rectangles” Item #: DI-0041 die cut on my “Black and White” paper with out the piercing die, then on the “Green Olive” card stock Item #: CS-0113. I used both the cutting and piercing die from the “Journey Rectangles” Item #: DI-0041.

journey Rectangles DI-0041As you can see they nest, and have piercing dies for each size.

I cut the sentiment out with the “Journey Ovals die,” Item #: DI-0042, then Stipled,Green Olive” true fusion ink Item #: IP-0072, on the “Whip Cream” card stock Item #: CS-0040, then stamped my stamp from the set “Wonderful Day” Item: SS-0126.

Journey Ovals DI_0042These also nest, and have piercing dies for each size.

I used the matching “Green Olive Satin Ribbon” Item #: AC-0107, to fish through the holes of my cut out circles, that I created using my Fun Stampers Journey “Journey Circle dies Item #: DI-0039.”

Journey Circles DI-0039These also nest, and have piercing dies for each size.

I also used:

“Sparkle Drops Item #: AC-0022”

Beach Breeze card stock: Item #: CS-0001 (That was embossed w/ a Folder.)

Pool Play card stock: Item #: CS-0092

Cool Pool card stock: Item #: CS-0118
