I Joined Stampin Up!

Hi! It's been a very long time since I've posted. I had a devastating loss the day after my last post and, until recently, I haven't been able to do many of the things I used to do routinely. It was months before I even wanted to stamp or make a card.

I joined Stampin Up as an independent demonstrator just a few days ago and hope to be sharing cards using their products very soon.

In the meantime, the Holiday Catalog launched today and you can see it here on my website. I am in love with the whole catalog and want everything, of course!

Also, this month the Designer Series Paper from the annual catalog is on sale, Buy 3, Get 1 FREE!

You can see all of the beautiful papers here.

If you don't already have a Stampin Up demonstrator, I'd love to be yours! Just click on the link in this post or in the sidebar to go to my website.

Thanks so much and have a great week!

Happy Monday! Hope your week is off to a great start. Today I'm back with another clean & simple card for a challenge.

The star of my card is the Fun Stampers Journey Flower Power Stencil. The stencil is 8.5" x 11" broken into 4 distinct designs. Each design is 4.25"  x 5.5" - perfect for card fronts. I chose this design because it has a lot of white space, which is perfect for clean & simple cards.

I sponged Worn Lipstick Distress Ink onto my FSJ Whip Cream card base. The sentiment is also from FSJ, the Inside & Out Stamp Set and was inked with FSJ Black Licorice ink. This stamp set is a must have for card makers, because it contains several sentiments for the front and the inside of your cards. 

Talk about clean & simple - one layer and less than 5 minutes from start to finish. I actually stencilled a bunch of these to have on hand. They're perfect for adding a sentiment later for whatever occasion I need.

I'm adding this to the January CAS Stencil Challenge.

Thanks for stopping in to look at my card today. 

                                                          Enjoy!  Pam

Life is Better with Friends

Oh my goodness! I haven't posted on here in soooo long. I have been making cards & teaching classes, just haven't shared them. Life sure does get busy, doesn't it?

Today I made a card to add to the current challenge at Addicted to CAS #151 Friends

Isn't this the truth? Life is definitely better with friends! The image is from a retired Fun Stampers Journey stamp set from last Spring called Storybook Friends. I loved all the sweet little animal friends in that set and was sad when it was retired. I used my FSJ Color Burst colored pencils to color the adorable image. My sentiment is from the October 2018 Bloom Box, Beautiful Friendship, which is still available.

In case you haven't heard, Fun Stampers Journey combined with Spellbinders last fall and products from both companies are now found at the FSJ & Spellbinders site.

I hope you have a pleasant week. Thanks for stopping by!

For You!

Today I am sharing a card I made using my favorite die in our Fun Stampers Journey catalog.

It's the Rose Garden Die Set seen here. Isn't it gorgeous? I've die cut Whip Cream cardstock and added it to a cardbase made with one of our beautiful new colors, Rustic Rose, One of our new Circle Around dies cut in Whip Cream was adhered to a Journey Circles die cut in Rustic Rose. The  sentiment is from the Mini Greetings ATS stamp set.

To embellish the card, I added a double bow made with Special Day Organza Ribbon and topped with one of the new Cottage Flowers in Rustic Rose. Some scattered Rustic Rose Cottage Pearls finishes the card.

You can find all of these products and many more on my site at Fun Stampers Journey. Have fun taking a look around!

Have a great day and Happy Crafting! Enjoy!
