Get the Scoop -- Fun Stampers Journey!

I have gotten a few questions about Fun Stampers Journey so I thought I'd share a few little things with you about this company.

First of all Fun Stampers Journey is founded by Richard Garay and his wife Gabby. I met them a few years ago at one of my Copic Classes at This n That Scrapbooking in Chino, California. The company was much smaller with just a handful of coaches at this time. A year ago I had seen my friend Cindy's post about the company and joining Fun Stampers Journey and becoming a Journey Coach. I called her right away to get a few more details. She said big things are going to happen with this company I can feel it! Sooo I thought about and then I signed up and I am Coach #227! I signed up right after their first Grand Event that was actually here in California and I MISSED IT!

So it's been 9 months and this company has just about trippled in coaches! We have already had our first convention and there is an incentive trip you can earn!

Lately the new trend has been a little more simple! I've really gone from frilly nilly to plain jane! Let me tell you why.

I was tired of all my cards looking the same. same types of papers, flowers, etc. That's why I fell in love with mixed media! So I started doing some of that. I just couldn't find my niche! I was burnt out from teaching Copic Classes for 3+ years. I was unmotivated! I love being on design teams and that was my main focus for a long time. Since having to work for the last 2 years it was so hard to keep my commitments on all my design teams...

 .. then I discovered something amazing that I've been working on for months... still working on and not ready to fully share yet! -- Such a tease.. right?

Ok, Let's talk Fun Stampers Journey Products!

We now have more stamps you can color in! YES!!!! I love to color! Take a look at this darling new image from a stamp set called Paris Girl. The card I created with this image will be up on my blog later this week!

Creating a 3D effect on your cards!

Hello there crafty peeps!

Today I have a little tutorial to share with you for my Richard Garay 'Make Amazing Girl' DT project! I made this 'Fun' little card to share with you. Aren't those balloons adorable! Well I'm going to show you how I made those by combining a couple of products, you might not otherwise combine. I always try to think outside the box a little and come up with something a little unique or at least use the products in a little bit of a different way.

Here we go.. Let's make some 3D looking
bubbly balloons!

So I used the little Celebra'tions Tag That (thought bubble die) for my balloons. 
Now, you see the coffee stamp set, 'Cup for two' off to the right.. I stamped the cup first, 2 times in the Captivating Coral Ink and then cut out the die. 

I then trimmed the points off of the bottom of the thought bubbles. Now they look like balloons!!!

Next, I used my Fun Stampers Journey Bloom Tool and got out the stylus piece and went over the entire backside of the 'Balloon' in a circular motion. You will start to see the balloon curl on the edges.

You can see the difference in the one I haven't done yet...

Doesn't that look darling! You have some bubbly little balloons for your card! 

Oh and take a look at those green splatters! I used the Lucous Green Liqid Silk. I just LOVE this stuff. It's like a  bottle of nail polish so when you tap on the lid you really get a great splatter effect!!

Well I hope you enjoyed my little tutorial. Until next time my freinds!

I love these colors together. Eveything but the Butterfly and Pink Sequins are in this kit. I did add that extra layer of pink to the my card stock matting just to tie in the pink sequins. I love the way the Cool Pool looks with the Pink Bubble Gum! 

Don't you just love this butterfly! The stamp set is called Enjoy the Journey. Not only is this set gorgeous! It has a coordinating die set.. so no fussy cutting here! I just LOVE that about
 Fun Stampers Journey. There are so many stamps and dies that coordinate!

Ice Cream is Happiness!

It's been a while since I've sat and created. I have had my last few projects made way in advance. I've have a really bad carpal tunnel flare up and it's making it hard to grip objects for long periods of time. So I had put crafting aside for a few weeks. Yesterday I finally was able to site and create. Boy, do I miss my crafts! 

Over this last weekend Fun Stampers Journey has released their 2015-2016 Catalog! Oh my!!
There are some fabulous new collections in there, Paris Vintage, Journey Girl.. a full line of Journey Mixed Media! Jewlery! If you haven't been over you should check it out!!! If you are interested in signing up as a coach I'd love to have you sign up under me! Contact me!! 

Here's my project for this week's Make Amazing Girl DT project!I made this adorable little table setting with an ice cream theme using the Fun Stampers Journey Yummy and Delicious collection. The stamp set I used is called 'Hello Scoop'. IT's adorable! and I just adore that saying!! The splatters being the quote is an ATC stamp called 'Ink Splat'. I used my Bubble Gum Ink. The darker splats are splatters of Bubble Gum Liquid Silk. I just love this stuff it comes in a 'nail polish' like bottle and has a little brush and it is so easy to get those splatter effects.

Fun Stampers Journey Yummy and Delicious

Ism't this such a cute little set up for ice cream if you had an ice cream party. I just love the way it came out. Those little ice cream cones are so cute.

Enjoy the Journey Card.

Well, if you are unaware The Fun Stampers Journey Convention is going on now and throughout the weekend! I'm SO BUMMED I'm missing it! I couldn't get the time off of work though. They are going to be having so much fun, getting lots of prizes, seeing all the new products in the new catalog and so much more. I will be stalking all of the journey coaches on Faceook!

Here's a simple card I have made using the SS-0035 Enjoy the Journey Stamp Set. I have used my Copics to color the butterfly. This paper is now retired from Fun Stampers Journey, it is called 
PP-0002 Black and White.  I used the edge of the AT-0090 Honeycomb to create some sporadic spots using IP-0041 Black Licorice Ink. It almost looks like it's blending in from the paper. 

Then I finished off by embellishing with the AC-0101 Fun Day Elegant Paperclips and AC-0112 Journey Sequins Blue Skies. Finally added just a little bit of Journey Dust AC-0013.

I hope you enjoy my card and remember to follow all the Coaches attending Convention to see all the new Goodies coming !!!
