Summer Rose Swap with Fun Stampers Journey

*Update*
I'm excited to say I have a feature back that can link you directly to my website if you click on any of the products I have listed below. I will also have the colors I use on my project showing in one place...A color builder. Yes, I'm SO excited to have these features again!!!

Yesterday was quite the day for me and so much fun!  I'm in Vegas for Fun Stampers Journey LEAD WITH HEART Leadership Conference. I have to say I NEVER thought I'd be in Vegas!  I guess having a conference was the way to get me here! lol 
Wednesday evening after registration and make and take prep we started with some swaps with the Amazing Bloomers group that is under Deb Valder.  Lots of great cards and 3-D swaps for sure!  I'll be posting some of them in the next week or so.  Right now I'd like to share my swap card with you.  I love how it turned out!  I'm always a little nervous about a swap, but then I get something done and it's either right or I'm starting over...and this one was right.



I took a couple pics of a bunch of the cards.  Not really sure how many I made, but I think it was around 44.



Just a straight shot of the card.  The silver ink is hard to get a good picture of let me tell you!



Whip Cream
Sweet Berry
And silver! :)

Just another pics of some of the cards.  They weren't too difficult to make, just time consuming because there were so many.  I pretty much made them the same way I explained in my previous post.  Yes, there's a bit of fussy cutting, but when you're making one or two cards it doesn't take much time at all!


Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Summer Rose Birthday ~ A Fun Stampers Journey Card

Hi Everyone!  I have a pretty clean and simple card to share with  you again today that is inspired by Try Stampin' or Not on Tuesday's sketch challenge #304.  I already had this stamp set and the two inks that I used on this card sitting on the table since I've been working on swaps for Leadership with Fun Stampers Journey!  Yes, that's a bit of a hint as to what my swap card will look like.  It's definitely not this one, but it shares the same sets and colors. And now I can't wait to learn what Fun Stampers Journey has to share with all of us at Leadership which is literally right around the corner!


This is today's sketch and the optional theme is "Old and New".  Almost everything on my card is new since I just made the switch to Fun Stampers Journey not too long ago! :)  The one thing that is old is the vellum paper that I used as the banner.  I have just a few sheets of it left and wanted to keep the look light so that's why I added it as the banner.


Make sure you check out all of the other fun cards HERE made using this sketch and play along if you get the chance.  We'd love to see what you create. :)


To create this card I used Journey Silver ink pad to stamp the background with the ATS stamp Postage Stamps.  I cut out a strip of  vellum paper and snipped the bottom to make a banner.  Then I stamped the rose base from the set Summer Rose using Sweet Berry.  I stamped it once on scrap paper, then onto my Whip Cream card stock to lighten the color.  Then I stamped the two other pieces I needed to complete the rose on top of the base I just stamped.  I did the same with the leaves and then fussy cut them all out.  I sponged around the edges of the flower lightly too.  It just finishes the rose off.  I popped the rose  with Journey Foam Squares and tucked the leaves underneath and attached them with glue dots.  To finish the card off I stamped Happy Birthday using the set Sentimental Prints and added three pearls.  Nice and easy! :)


Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Begin Adventure ~ A Fun Stampers Journey Card

Today I have another masculine card to share and boy was it easy to create!  Wish I could make all of my cards this fast! lol  



I needed a basic CAS (clean and simple) masculine card for my January stamp a stack and this one just works.  It's not fancy and doesn't have any embellishments, but that's ok some times!


I stamped World Map with Oatmeal Cookie on Butter Cream card stock.  Then stamped the airplane called Begin Adventure right over the map using Hazelnut Blend.  The last stamp from the set Cake Time was also stamped using Hazelnut Blend.  I also sponged all around the edges of the Butter Cream card Stock using Oatmeal Cookie.


The very last thing I stamped was the airplane again on the inside of the card (if you stamp it a second time right away without re-inking it again you'll get a very light image).  You could just re-ink it with Oatmeal Cookie and stamp it with that also.  Then I stamped Happy Birthday from the set Cake Time over the airplane using Hazelnut Blend again.  That's pretty much it other than cutting out your card stock and putting the card together...simple! :)


Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Let's Ride ~ A Fun Stampers Journey Card

I have a masculine card to share with you today.  With all the Christmas cards and thank you notes I've made lately it was nice to pull out some stamps and create a little something else!  Plus I've had a scene like this in the back of my mind for a while to use with this stamp.


This card almost...almost, but not quite...makes me want to go out and take a ride on a motorcycle.  Notice I said ride and not drive! lol  I've been on one twice in my life.  Once around a parking lot and another time with my son on his dirt bike.  That was good enough! lol  Anyway I created this card for my cousin's birthday, but he doesn't have a motorcycle (at least not that I'm aware of).  I know he's not a chicken like me at all and would have way too much fun riding one (and his mom too!)


This card was pretty easy to create and was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #268.  



I stamped the motorcycle on watercolor paper and added the sky, mountains and green valley using watercolor pencils.  No I didn't use the pencils directly on the paper, but rather got the color off the tips of the pencils and put them on a painter's palette that has a lid so I can reuse the paint I didn't use on this card.  Someday...yes, someday I NEED to start making videos.  If I did that you would see how simple it is to create the background for this card!


Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Merry Christmas! A Fun Stampers Journey Card

Merry Christmas!  I hope you have all had a great day spending time with family and friends.  I know that I have.  As Christmas day 2016 is about to close for me I have one final Christmas card to share with you.  This is always a special card for me to make because my dad asks me to make a card for my mom that he can give her on Christmas day.  Since her favorite color is blue I always make that the dominant color.


This was another card that was hard to get a good picture of!  The watercolor is a bit more vibrant and the embossed notes aren't gray or super shiny like the pictures show.   My dad and mom both liked it so that's all that matters. :)  


I started by stamping Vintage Notes on watercolor paper using Clear Pigment Ink and embossing it with Journey Silver Embossing Powder.  However before I used my heat gun I used a kleenex to randomly wipe off some of the embossing powder.  I wanted the background to be there, but not be the dominant focal point.  Next I used my Color Splash watercolor pencils to create a colorful background.  After that I stamped two trees from the set Winter Holiday using a Journey Silver ink pad.  Have you seen all the snowflakes I've been putting on my Christmas cards lately?  I'm now down to just a few left.  A couple of these are a lot smaller than the snowflakes I earned for free as a Bloom Benefit.  That's because I broke a few of them when I was a little heavy handed and in a hurry putting them on other cards.  Did I throw them away?  NO WAY! lol  I broke the other parts of the snowflake off and made mini snowflakes! :D  


Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Tag Elements ~ A Fun Stampers Journey Christmas Card

Oops!!  I forgot to post today's card for Try Stampin' or Not on Tuesday's sketch challenge.  I loved the sketch we had to work with and used some supplies that I've used on a few other cards I've made lately.


This was a hard card to get a good picture of since the snowflakes have sparkles, the white paper is shimmery and so is the silver paper!


Make sure you check out all the other great cards made with this week's sketch HERE .  So fun to see how everyone else thinks and creates. :)  If you get a chance make sure you play along too.  We'd love to see what you create!


See the difference in these two pics?  Now use your imagination and pretend it's not quite as shimmery and shiny as the top, but not as dull as the bottom. :)


Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Sentimental Prints Christmas Thank You ~ A Fun Stampers Journey Card

It's that time of year...time to write some thank yous!  My hubby works for the USPS as a rural mail carrier.  Let's just say that he is BUSY (has been since September) and when people take the time to give him a gift on his mail route he really appreciates it!  And the ever loving wife that I am (who also happens to makes cards) has to help him out with that right?  Plus I get the benefit of all of his goodies too so I suppose I can sacrifice a little! ;)  Every year I whip up a handful of cards and for the past few years I've been making 3x3 cards.  


I just can't resist the Bloom Benefits called Pretty Flakes Accents!  I LOVE these snowflakes, so it's a good thing I earned a LOT of them!  I actually had enough to put them on my hot chocolate project from my November open house, on two sets of stamp a stack cards for December and all of these 3x3 cards.  Love that I get Bloom Benefits for every $50 that I spend with Fun Stampers Journey! :)



I think I made about 47 of these small cards.  Usually I have a LOT of gifts on hand before I get them done, but this year I've been ahead of the game...yea me! :)  

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
