Wonderful Day Stamp set focus

I love this stamp set.  So whimsical but you can dress it up to something really rich, or dress it down to something very simple.

This card was made by creating a card sleeve.  The paper starts with a 4 X 11 sheet of cardstock (Limeade in this case).  It is then scored at the 2 " and then turned and scored at the 4" mark on the wide side.  Then scored again at 2" on the long size.  This allows for a pocket to be made for the sentiment piece of the card.

The image was colored with Lyra Colored pencils and then using gamsol I smothed the lines and did my blending.  Once that dried out a bit I added journey glaze to the images.  I cut a small piece of watermelon card stock and Added the gingham Ribbon to the sleeve.

I hope you like this little card.

New Company, New techniques and Product

I recently changed companies to Fun Stampers Journey.  This is a relatively young stamp company.  The products are outstanding.  Believe me you will love them!

Tonight I want to show a card and explain a bit about what I did with it.


This card is a small card in that it is sized 3 X 4.  The card is layered with Black Licorice card stock as well as Limeade splash.  I also used a really cool product called Bubblegum silk to achieve the speckled background.  The sentiment was stamped in watermelon Fusion ink.


The Rose was colored with reinkers from the company.  And then I cut multiple layers and layered them on the rose.  This allows the image to be raised and provide dimension.  Due to the addition of the journey glaze, I also added a bit of glitter.


To complete the image, I tied Black twine around the limeade splash to give dimension.


Items used in making the card:

Whip Cream Cardstock
Black Licorice Cardstock
Limeade Splash Cardstock
Black Licorice Ink
Watermelon Fusion Ink
Wonderful Day stamp set
Tag Elements Stamp set
Black Licorice Journey Twine
Foam Pop dots
Journey Glaze
Journey Glitter

Simple Christmas Ornament Project



This Christmas I want to be able to give some handmade presents to my family and close friends.  While doing this I was looking for something simple but elegant all at the same time.  I think I found it with this ornament.  The plate is a piece or porcelain that is glazed.  I stamped my Naughty or nice (A Muse Studio) on the plate with Jet Black stazon and left it overnight.  I then colored the jacket with copic markers taking care not to leave streaks (that was the hard part).  and then colored the belt buckle with a yellow copic marker.  I then left it again for a few hours and came back and put white flock in the sleeves, collar and bottom of the coat. 


Hope you like the result.  If you would like a kit let me know or if you would like to purchase a completed one, I will be selling those for 7.00 each. 


Included in the kit is:

2 Porcelin plates with red velvet ribbon

Naughty or nice stamp set

Red Lipstick Copic (R29)

Golden Yellow Copic (Y17)

Full set of instructions with example

Add ons:

1. Sakura Quickie Glue (best thing for glitter and flock) $2.95 Each

2. Stazon Jet Black  $8.95 each
