Rainbow Bubbles Birthday Bunch ~ A Group of Fun Stampers Journey Cards!

A couple of days ago I said I'd  have a few more cards to show you that talked about a technique I used on each card.  Notice the hearts, triangles, stripes and honeycombs?  Those were all created using Modeling Paste from fun Stampers Journey and four different dies that they offer.  An easy technique to add just a little pizzazz or fun background to any of your cards.



As you look at each of the cards a little closer you'll see that I didn't try to make the modeling paste perfectly smooth or only have the shapes on my card.  I wanted them a bit rough and even let the paste go over the edges of the die-cut paper so there were edges here and there.  The first one I made was the honeycomb card and it isn't quite as thick as the rest, but that was my first try at it.  I know I will be using this technique in the future for sure! :)

This is the card I posted a couple of days ago...





I made a fish just like this one a week or so ago and loved the color of it, so I made this one the same color.






I did a bit of a watercolor wash on this card.  Since the background was a little darker than the other cards I kept my fish white and covered them with Journey Glaze and Sparkle Dust.



I didn't add any glaze or sparkles to this card because I'm sure I'll give it to a boy and I'm positive most of them aren't into that as much as girls are.  I did make the fish a couple of different colors to make him pop out a bit more from the card.


Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Rainbow Bubbles Birthday ~ A Fun Stampers Journey Card

Today's card is inspired by Try  Stampin' on Tuesday's sketch challenge #313.  It's also inspired by a technique, but I'll be posting more about that later this week with a few more cards.  As usual I tend to stretch the sketch a little bit, but I just wasn't liking any of the flowers I made to put on my cards...beautiful flowers is the optional theme for today's card and mine just weren't beautiful, so I had to go with some rainbow fish instead. lol


This is the sketch and you can see why I say I stretched it a bit! lol  Make sure you head over to Try Stampin' on Tuesday HERE to check out all the other great cards using this sketch.  If you get a chance to play along we'd love to see what you create! :)


Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Nautical Sketch Birthday Card and VIDEO ~ A Fun Stampers Journey Card

Just a quick reminder that today is the last day to sign up for RG Presents... which is on Saturday, March 25.  If you'd like to sign up just let me know or go to my website here...www.funstampersjourney.com/sarahoogendoorn and use the code BD-0235.

Do you ever have a card that inspires you to create?  Sometimes I Google certain words to see what comes up to inspire me.  I needed a little inspiration when I wanted to use the lighthouse stamp from the FSJ stamp set Nautical Sketch.  I think I Googled something like "hand stamped cards with lighthouses".  While I was scrolling I saw a card by Deb S. that eventually led me to her blog HERE.  I love how she used dark colors on the card and the oval to frame her light house.  I decided to use pan pastels to create the background and color in my light house.  I created a video for you to see how easy it is to do!








Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Tiger Blooms ~ A Fun Stampers Journey Card

Before I get into today's card I want to remind you that this is the last day to sign up with Fun Stampers Journey as a coach and save $50 on one of two kits (you need to use the code JMWJB50 when you check out).  In addition to saving on one of two kits you will receive a stamp set that I showed you HERE last week.  Richard created the card below with the stamp set. I'd love to have you join my team! Just click "Join My Team" above to check it out. If you have any questions please contact me!


Boy do I have a CAS card for you today that was inspired by Try Stampin' or Not on Tuesday's sketch challenge #311.  Yes, I'm saying it again...I stretched the sketch!  When don't I do that? lol  Since the optional theme is checkerboard or plaid I had to opt for something a little different which is CAS since I don't have either of those right now.


I used my ATS stamp Tiger Blooms, stamped it with clear pigment ink, poured my gold embossing powder on it, used my heat gun to melt it and there you have it.  Since the stamp has three flowers I figured the top and bottom flower represented the blue on the sketch and the middle one that juts to the right is the white square. :)  

Make sure you head over to TSOT Here to check out what the other designers created.  Lot's of great cards using this sketch.  If you get a chance to play we'd love to check out how this sketch inspired you. :)


I can't tell you how difficult it was to get a good picture of the gold on this card.  It was either to shiny, dull or a mixture of both.  The top flower in the picture above is the closest I could get to how it actually looks.



Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Hit the Road Birthday Card and Video ~ A Fun Stampers Journey Card

Hey Everyone...I have a couple of fun masculine cards to show you today.  
My nephews have their birthdays a few weeks apart, so they have a birthday party sometime in between.  I usually make them the same card, but sometimes change the colors up a bit.  That's what I did on their cards this time around.  The first card I made was the Candy Apple truck and the second one is Huckleberry Fusion truck.  
I thought I would love the red and think the blue was just ok.  I honestly don't know which one I like better!  Both are fun and pretty quick to create.  Notice I didn't stamp my trucks onto Candy Apple and Huckleberry Fusion card stock.  Instead I stamped them both onto Whip Cream card stock, did some masking and sponged the trucks.  I use my sponges in a different way depending on what I'm sponging.  I've made a video to show you how I used my sponges on the trucks...Enjoy!




Black Licorice
Whip Cream
Rock Candy
Huckleberry Fusion
Candy Apple


You only have two days left to sign on as a FSJ Coach and save $50, plus get an extra stamp set beyond what's included in your kit!  Let me know if you're interested or go to www.funstampersjourney.com/sarahoogendoorn to check it out!

Bird Melody Stamp Set Promotion with Fun Stampers Journey

Isn't this card gorgeous!  


It was created by Richard Garay the President and Co-Founder of Fun Stampers Journey.  And that's not all...he asked the coaches to help him design the set below that was used on this card.  
He went live with his coaches and asked our opinions about the stamp set.  He did all kinds of tweaking and chatted with us while we were typing our thoughts to him.  Who does this kind of thing with direct sales companies???  Richard does!!! And he's offered this set FREE to anyone who signs up with Fun Stampers Journey in the month of February.


So...you get this set for free, a 3-pack of Journey Label Charms, and a great deal on the Platinum or Amaze kits with an additional $50 off either of these kits in the month of February (you need to use the code JMWJB50 when you check out).  On top of that the quarterly minimum is only $150!  That's half of what other stamping companies offer.  If you just want to be a hobbyist you can do it with FSJ! 


I do want to say you will not get this set as soon as you become a coach.  You will have to wait until July when the new Inspiration Book and Catalog go live, but it will be worth it! :)





Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Rainbow Bubbles Card and Video ~ A Fun Stampers Journey Card

I have a cute card to share with you today that was inspired by Try Stampin' on Tuesday's sketch challenge #309.  Once again I stretched the sketch a bit because I didn't make three symmetrical  things, but a fish and two sets of bubbles instead.  I made a video that's posted below on how I made this card and also to promote this stamp set...

This set is due out in the Spring into Summer catalog beginning in April, however it is being released for one week (February 13- February 19) for anyone who purchases $50 of product.  If you would like this set go to my website www.funstampersjourney.com/sarahoogendoorn, order $50 worth of product and you will get a notification that you can purchase this set (SS-0418).  It's as easy as that!  Make sure you watch my video below to check out the stamp set!



This was another fun sketch to work with!  Make sure you check out all the fantastic cards made by the design team HERE.  We'd love to see what you can create with this design too. 




Thanks for looking and have a great day!
