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.

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!

Fabulous Unicorn

Hello. I hope you had a lovely weekend. It's winter break here in Central New York. No school for the kids, so I get to spend a couple days this week with my granddaughter. Love spending time with her!

The card I'm sharing today uses a new stamp in the Bloom This Way Mini Trends Catalog from Fun Stampers Journey. The second I saw this set I knew I had to have it. It's called Magical Unicorn and you can order the dies for it with the bundle. There are 2 fabulous unicorn images, some great sentiments and a plethora of other fun images.

I so love unicorns, don't you?  Mine was stamped with Black Licorice ink onto Whip Cream cardstock and then die cut. I used our fabulous Color Burst Pencils to color my unicorn and some gems. Next I added Journey Glaze and Sparkle Cuts to make them sparkle. I hope you can see some of that sparkly goodness in the picture.

The whip cream die cut panel was created with a Journey Rectangle die and a Journey Circles die. Behind the aperture I added a paper from the Birthday Pop Printed Paper collection. Isn't it fun? The panel was then adhered to a whip cream card base. The sentiment is from the stamp set. Lastly I popped up my colored images onto the card. I love it! Can you guess who is getting a birthday card made with this set next week?

I'm entering this into Inspirational: Challenge 154 - Aperture.

Thanks for stopping in so I could share my fab unicorn card with you. Have a wonderful week! Enjoy!

Love Ya

Hi! Today I'm playing with more flowers. They always make me happy!

I used the Spring Botanicals stamps to create this card. The blooms and leaves were inked with Candy AppleBubble Gum, and River Stone inks onto Whip Cream cardstock. The cardstock had been die cut with  the largest of the Journey Rectangles dies, adhered to River Stone cardstock and then to my card base. The sentiment is from the Everyday Script Bundle and was popped up onto the card.

I'm entering this into the challenge at Color Throwdown where the colors are red, pink & gray, as well as the challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More for Holiday. Also entering CAS on Friday #126 - Dies. 

Who doesn't love flowers for Valentine's Day? Enjoy!
