Stay Wild - The Peace of Christmas ~ A Fun Stampers Journey Card

I have another card for this week's sketch challenge over at Try Stampin' or Not on Tuesday.  Now this was a fun sketch to work with, but I went a little crazy again and turned that sketch upside down!  



Here's the sketch we had to work with and all I could see was a big ol' moon popping out from behind the mountain even though I was looking at it upside down! lol

Make sure you stop over at Try Stampin' on Tuesday Here and check out all the other cards made by the design team.  So fun to see what everyone else created with the sketch.  If you get a chance make sure you play along.  We'd love to see what you create!


To create this scene I started by stamping a background stamp called Vintage Notes onto Buttercream card stock using the Journey Gold ink pad (I wanted the moon to have something inside of it, so I had to start with what is the farthest in the background and move my way forward...if that makes any sense!).  Then a ripped a piece of scrap paper so I had a mountain shape ripped out.  I sponged the whole mountain with Pretty Amethyst, then added Deep Lilac and sponged from the top of the mountain down, but didn't do about the bottom 1/4 of it.  Last I sponged using the color Pretty Pansy and once again started at the top and sponged down about half way.  Next I cut out a circle for the moon and used the inside of the scrap that I had ripped out of the mountain to cover the mountain up and and the moon so I could sponge over the rest of the card without ruining the mountain that I had already sponged and to make the moon stand out.  I once again started with Pretty Amethyst and sponged over the whole card (except the mountain and moon because they are covered), then added Deep Lilac, but stuck closer to the edges. The last color once again was Pretty Pansy and I just barely touched on the left and right edges, but did the top and corners down a little farther.  I added "peace" over the moon using Deep Lilac and stamped the trees using one of my favorite stamps "Stay Wild".  I stamped that with Deep Lilac as well.  I added three pearls to finish off the card.


Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Flock Together ~ A Fun Stampers Journey Card

Do you remember the Autumn Days Birthday card I posted a little while ago with leaves and gold silk?  Well today's card was made using all the leftovers I had of that card from my open house.  For some reason I had a lot more extras of that card than the rest of what I created!  Guess I didn't count very well when I was prepping that card. lol


As you can tell I didn't use any of the same stamps.  I needed an anniversary card and also wanted to use a set I hadn't used before even though I've had it pretty much since I started Fun Stampers Journey at the end of August.



All I did was stamp four feathers, emboss two of them with black and two with gold...and fussy cut them!  Then of course I put them on the card and popped a couple of them up, added some gold and dark roast silks, used some leftover twine I had and stamped "celebrate" on the bottom of the card.  Nice and easy! :)


Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Greeting Bouquet ~ A Fun Stampers Journey Card

Today's card is the card I made for all of my ladies who ordered from me in October and November.  I love how this card turned out, so I hope they all liked their cards too. :)



Just a quick picture of a stash of them. :)





This card wasn't too hard to make at all...except fussy cutting the embossed flowers out.  That wasn't hard to do it just took a little bit of time, but it was worth it! :)


Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Deer Pose ~ A Fun Stampers Journey Card

Today I have a quick post for you (and hopefully I will be posting more a little more regularly again!).  Anyway I needed a masculine card for my brother-in-law's birthday last week and since he's a hunter I figured the stamp Deer Pose would be the one to use.  


Since I love trying my hand at watercolor and haven't done it in a while I figured it was time to get busy again.  I didn't actually watercolor this though.  I used Fun Stampers Journey reinkers and mixed them with something called Fusion Blender to get this look.  It was very quick and easy to do!  I didn't need to wait for anything to dry, no bleeding where I didn't want it too and my stamped images didn't fade.  :)


If you have FSJ reinkers and fusion blender you should give it a try!


Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Summer Rose ~ A Fun Stampers Journey Card

I finally have another card to share with you all today and it's inspired by this week's sketch challenge #298 over at Try Stampin' or Not on Tuesday.  Boy was this sketch a challenge for me!  I really like the sketch, but my creativity was just off or something.  I ended up creating a card, didn't really like it and started another one instead.



Usually the first picture showing my card is on an angle and the picture looking directly at the card is in the middle.  I switched things up a bit today because only one angle of my card showed the Gold Shimmer Color Splash.  That's one of the things I love about the card...the shimmer on the leaves and Roses, so I had to show it first. :)


Make sure you check out all the cards the other designers made HERE...they are great this week!!


I used the sketch, but definitely took things to a different level. lol  I used a background stamp for the middle rectangle, a small rose for the smallest rectangle and turned my card 90 degrees!  


Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Autumn Days Birthday ~ A Fun Stampers Journey Card

Do you ever feel like you're in a slump with your creativity?  I'm sure most of us have!  Let me tell you I sure have felt that way this week and haven't created much at all. :(  Maybe I just needed a break.  Today's card is one that I created earlier this month for my open house.  I wouldn't call it a fall card even though it has leaves on it.  Guess I was looking for  more of a masculine card since my other card was a feminine one.


I started by stamping a background stamp with Oatmeal Cookie.  I didn't try to get the whole stamp inked up.  I just wanted color here and there.  After that I stamped all the leaves.  To get the various colors I started by stamping the whole stamp using the Oatmeal Cookie ink pad, then I tipped the stamp so I was just getting the edges in the ink, using both Dark Roast and Black Licorice.  After I had all three colors on  it then I would stamp it.  Not sure if that makes sense, but that's how I got the different colors. :)


After stamping everything I put a bit of Gold Silk on it and finished assembling the card.


Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Autumn Days - Again! ~ A Fun Stampers Journey Card

I have a feeling these are the last fall cards I'll be posting in a while.  Yuppers, the color here in my part of Michigan is pretty much gone.  There's an occasional tree here and there that are a little behind with some bright red, yellow or rust color still around, but they'll be gone soon enough...I sure did enjoy the show while it lasted though!  I had to create a couple more cards to extend fall just a little longer...and because I had a lot of left over leaves I needed to use!


So the top card shows a little Gold Shimmer Color Splash, but the bottom shows a ton.  It's just the way the light is hitting it because it's not as shiny as what you see below!


I added Gold and Bronze Silks to each of my cards too.  I had just bought them and couldn't resist trying them out!


This is the second card I made...


I like the layout of my first card better, but I think I like the colors on this card more. 


I definitely didn't use as much of the silks on this card.  I was new at using them on the first card, so I wasn't quite as heavy-handed on the second card. lol  I do have a few pictures from an earlier post HERE that show how I created the leaves if you're interested in checking it out.  I just made these colors a little darker and more intense than on the cards in that post.


Thanks for looking and have a great day!
