Yummy and Delicious Place Settings!

It's time for another Fun Stampers Journey project to share with you all!
This little card set is so cute. The stamps and papers are from the Yummy and Delicious Collection. Fun Stampers Journey is currently travelig all over the USA promorting this amazing collection. YOu can view their tour schedule HERE to join the fun!

I made a matching Cupcake Treat Holder with the Cupcake Liner Die! This is seriously so cute! and you can easily make matching place settings for a baby shower, birthday, Thanksgiving ANY get together. This little set would make darling place settings. 

This Pineapple Smoothie Crimpped Ribbon is stunning. I love the texture on it. 
Of course I added lots of dimension by using my foam dots on the suckers and onmy pierced rectangle layer. Remember you don't need to hand stich or line up those rolling stitching tools. Fun Stampers Journey has these amazing dies that you can add the piercing template inside the die. It matches and lines up beautifully!

Isn't that rainbow chevron paper delish! 
It's one of my favorite paterns in this collection. 

Well, I hope you enjoy'ed my project. Have a wonderful and amazing day!

A Fun Stampers Journey Gift Set

Hello there crafty friends.

Today I'm sharing with you a little gift set I made with my daughters girls scout troop for Mothers Day. I had made all the girls pre-cut kits. I did let them stampthe flowers and used the Journey Grand to die cut the flowers. I thought they would get a kick out of that instead of using scissors. The class was a hit. The Bow die is probably one of the coolest dies I've ever seen. We used the little box die and filled it with Hershey kisses. 

I had the girls stamp the flower on the white card stock and then take the die cut one and add a foam dot adding height and dimension. Which is the same thing I did for the flower on the box. These papers are from the Yummy and Delicious Collection. You can check out the dates of the Yummy and Delicious Tour HERE!

Here is my creation for the hop and a little tutorial on how I created it!

 On this card I‘m using SS-0094 With Love and SS-0136 Love You Stamp Sets. Once I decide what I’m going to use I then choose a paper and color scheme. I chose the PP-0004 New DayPaper Collection. Here’s another way to get a layered look by cutting out a shape on your first layer revealing the paper underneath. I stamped my hearts in Pool Play ink and stamped the heart 2 times making one a lighter shade, then cut them out with my DI-0033 Heart Felt Dies.

Then I chose other elements from the stamp sets that I wanted on my card and stamped them and cut them out. I stamped the rose 3 times so I can make a 3d rose in 3 different tiers. Now I will layer my card using AC-0084 and 0085 foam dots in between each new layer.

You can see the shadows of each layer giving your card dimension and height.
I also have added some hearts on my white layer under the Patterned Paper. See those lovely little silver sparkle splatters around the hearts.. that’s Fun Stampers Journey’s fabulous AC-0019 Silver Silk.

One of my favorite parts of creating a card is adding all of those small little details that really give your projects that extra pop! I have used AC-0027 Hearts and StarsWooden Buttons, AC-0102 Paper Clip Elements, AC-0113 Journey Sequins Blue Sky and AC-0005 Natural Journey Twine.

The PP-0004 NewDay Paper Collection and 2 Stamp Sets, SS-0094 With Love and SS-0136 Love YouStamp are currently on the retirement list and will soon no longer be available. You can find these sets and lots of others on the retirement list. Great deals for you or gifts for friends!

Thank you for visiting my  blog today and joining us on the hop. Be sure to visit everyone!
Have a wonderful day!
