Joyous Bird - FSJ Stamp of the Month kit


Greetings friends!  Today I made my first cards for the upcoming Christmas holiday.  I know it seems like Summer just ended but I need to get a head start on the cards and tags and all the holiday making because it will be here soon!

This month's "Joyous Bird" creates gorgeous floral cards, scrapbook pages, and more.  You can see the stamp set HERE.

The set this month really lends itself to being heat embossed.  Its a beautiful, delicate dove....so elegant and sends the perfect message of Peace and Joy.


For this card I embossed the bird and the branches in gold.  I colored the florals with markers, and then I fussy cut everything out.

Then I took a piece of blue card stock, and ink blended Chipped Sapphire Distress ink.  I used a white pigment ink to stamp the stars and snowflakes.  I assembled the cut out pieces as shown and added a few sequins for some extra sparkle.


My second card used much of the same techniques except I layered some gold card stock as a frame around the edge.  Again, I used my favorite must have Spellbinders Hemstitch rectangles.  (you really need these!)

Friendship Blessing - Fun Stampers Journey Stamp of the Month kit

Good morning friends!  I'm here to share the latest, (and possibly my favorite) Fun Stampers Journey stamp kit of the month.
It's called Friendship Blessing, and its a beautiful floral set!  I can never resist a good floral set.


This set is perfect to practice your coloring with.  Its got shading lines, and wide open spaces to work on getting the pretty blends.


I attempted the no line coloring with Copic markers.  I am pleased with how it came out :)  I stamped the image using a Copic safe ink that is really light.  I used the shading lines to help me figure out where to color.  


I totally love how my pear turned out. :)


Thats all for today.  If you are interested in purchasing this kit, please check out the link here.

I often create a simple background with images stamped in a light color such as this soft stone color.



I added some enamel dots for a fun embellishment.

Spellbinders Glimmer Foil kit - July 2019

Hi there friends!  Hope you're all having a great summer with friends and family!

Today I'm showing off my favorite (to date) Hot Glimmer kit from Spellbinders.  Nothing inspires me more than a fantastic sentiment set, be it stamps, dies or hot glimmer plates!  They are just so useful!  And this kit goes onto my "must have" list.    I quickly made four cards with this set, and the uses are basically unlimited!



 First things...what is the kit?  It's a monthly subscription that enables you to get exclusive glimmer plates each month for your hot foil machine.  The machine is fantastic, and the selection of foils is amazing.  I use mine so much, its a permanent fixture on my craft table now.

On to the kit.  It's a fantastic set of sentiments with coordinating dies, and it comes with pewter foil!  You can see the entire kit at this link: KIT (affiliate linking may be used at no cost to you.)


And now on to the cards!


This card combines some ink blending and a stencil and a really fun set from Fun Stampers Journey.  I stamped all the pieces, die cut them and arranged them on a rectangle I cut out using the  Spellbinders Hemstitch rectangles.  (Another must have for me!).  I added my Foiled sentiment from the Kit, and I love it!


This card literally came together seconds after the last one...this ink blending is just the edge piece from the last stencil....it was too pretty to throw out, so I reached for some die cuts I had, and mounted them on the card panel and added another one of the fantastic Hot glimmer Foil sentiment pieces...and called it done.


This card has a Spellbinders Cut and Emboss folder, a little bling, and that super cute Birthday sentiment from the kit.


I was in the mood to do some more foiling, so I used the Spellbinders Circle pattern glimmer plates on this one, added a little ink blending, and some leftover die cuts and topped it off with the Foiled greeting from the kit.

That's it for today!  Thank you so much for stopping by!

Fun stampers Journey Stamp of the month club -July 2019

Hi there friends! I hope you are having an enjoyable summer and staying cool!   I’m playing around with the super cute Fun Stampers Journey stamp of the month kit for July,

This month it’s a cute stamp set called Age of Aquarium (love that play on words).


This set was so fun, I was quickly inspired to make several cards!


For the first card, I used my ink blending brushes and some distress ink to make an under the sea background.  I stamped the fish, and plants and castle in some bright colored inks and fussy cut them out.  I arranged them for a sweet under the sea scene.



This card was super fast.  I used the negative space from an oval die cut using my favorite Spellbinders Hemstitch oval set as a stencil.


My last project features an Aquarium Box companion die (sold separately) that makes a 3D card and I used it as a gift card holder.

The Fun Stampers Journey (FSJ) Stamp of the Month sets are made in the USA of high quality deeply etched red rubber with cling mount. Our stamps create one of the best impressions on the market giving you a perfect stamped image every time.
This month's "Age of Aquarium" creates gorgeous floral cards, scrapbook pages, and more. You can also purchase the coordinating Aquarium Box Die Set (DI-0539) - Sold Separately.

  • A Monthly Red Rubber Stamp Set: The full size stamp sets are approximately 5.75 x 4.5 in size. (Will vary each month.) $25 Value!

Spellbinders is continually adding great glimmer plates to their collection.  You can see all the latest ones HERE.



This card features the new Flower Pattern Glimmer Hot Foil plate.  This plate is so versatile as it's an A2 card sized plate.  I foiled this one in black glimmer foil and colored with Copic markers.  I also used one of my foiled sentiment strips as the greeting.


For the final touch, I added a jewel heart to the card.


This card features two different glimmer plates from the new collections.  I first used the Circle Pattern Glimmer plates and some pink foil.  I die cut around it using the hemstitch circle dies.  I then foiled the greeting with the Hello foil plate with gold foil.  I die cut the word and mounted it over the circles.

New Spellbinders Cut & Emboss Folders

Hi there crafty peeps!  Hope you are enjoying your summer!   I find I am super busy in the summer, yet I still have cards I need to create and send.  Right now, I need a bunch of Thank you cards.

Have you tried the Spellbinder's cut and emboss folders?  Today was my first time playing with them, and they make creating a pretty card so quick and easy!  The cut and embossing folder does double duty by embossing and cutting a gorgeous design into your cardstock.

Spellbinders released several new designs recently, and I played with a few of them.  You can view them HERE.



This card came together so quickly!  I ran a piece of white cardstock and the new Moroccan View cut and emboss folder through my Spellbinders Platinum 6.  Then I added color with the Jane Davenport pastels palette and a cosmetic sponge.  It's so gorgeous and shimmery!


I have a bunch of sentiment strips made up with my Hot Foil Glimmer machine, and I added one and voila...super quick card!



Here is a second card I made using the same process and a different cut and emboss folder.  Now that I've played with these...I need more!  So fun and pretty!

Thanks for stopping by today!  I've provided links throughout my post for all the things I used.  (Affiliate links may be used at no cost to you....thank you for your continued support!)

Have a great day and see you soon!

Peace,

Fun Stampers Journey - Stamp of the Month Kit June 2019

Good morning crafty friends!  Hope everyone is enjoying the beginning of summer!  Today, I'm sharing a card using the June Fun Stampers Journey stamp of the month kit.  I loved the theme for this month...DONUTS!  I immediately thought of my Dad, he loves donuts and the newspaper on Sunday mornings.  So...I am going to give him this card on Sunday for Father's Day. 








This card was a lot of fun to make.  I stamped a half dozen donuts on some smooth white cardstock, and then colored them with easy Copic coloring.  I used a white pen to add some icing to the chocolate ones. :)








I used the coordinating dies to cut out my donuts  and my sentiment "Sprinkled with Love"






I wanted to make the card look like a box of donuts, so I took a piece of kraft colored cardstock, and made it into a card.  I used the rectangle from my favorite must have set Hemstitch rectangles from Spellbinders, and cut a window in the card.  Then I cut out a rectangle of tissue paper to put my donuts on.  (just like they do at the bakery!) I adhered the tissue paper, and then popped the donuts on using some foam tape to give them dimension.  I closed my "donut box" with a little adhesive, put the sentiment on and then mounted the whole thing onto another A2 sized card. 


Instant, calorie free, fun donuts!  I love it!

Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil Kit for June 2019

This month the Hot foil kit is FLOWERS!  There’s are so many possibilities with this kit...and it includes the matching outline dies.



For this Birthday card, I used three colors of foil.  The pink foil is included with the kit, and I used gold and green foil from my stash.

I also colored my flowers with something new to me.  I recently got the Jane Davenport pastels...they are so easy to blend.  I love the softness of the only card, and they are a nice change from blending inks.
