Journey Holidays Blog Hop

Welcome to the Journey Holidays Blog Hop! I’m so happy to have you hopping
Along! If you have arrived from Ruth's blog, you’re on the right track! If Not, that’s ok too! Just continue the hop and you will come full circle!

Hey, everyone! So I am in the middle of moving, basically I have been living out of boxes for the past month since we are in the process of buying and selling a home. So I have very basic supplies available to me and my projects are created with the very basics.

Using the Printed Paper Christmas Cheer and the Memory Pocket Page I created this layout and added the Poinsettia Burst. Now all I need are my Christmas photos and I have the spot for journaling as well.

This card I kept it really simple, again with the move I have just the basics. 
Black Licorice Card Base, Whip Cream Cardstock, Vellum I embossed with the Fa La La embossing folder, sparkle silk, I stamped the image and sentiment from Noel wreath in Black Licorice.

The above jewelry is from our Bloom Collection Line. This is the Journey Sparkle Tower Locket with the Balck Licorice and Candy Apple Tower Plates as well as the Joy and Boo Tower Plates. Fun Stampers Journey has several mix and match options int he Bloom Collection line for Holiday Wear to Everyday Wear.

Thank you for stopping by today, be sure to head to Carol’s blog next.

Flash Back Friday: Pan Pastels

Today I am focusing on the versatility of Pan Pastels. We are the first Direct Sales crafting company to offer a crafting collaboration such as this. PanPastels are an artist quality soft pastel that comes in a uniquely designed pan tray. PanPastelsare a dry color application that applies like a fluid paint. Each color pan offers a concentrated pigment color that stays true to color even when exposed to light and are fully erasable. These unique qualities offer countless color palette combinations when mixed together. The Fun Stampers Journey PanPastels are individually packaged in four color family combinations.Each color combination comes ready to use with its own Sofft Tools. We offer 4 color pallets in addition to 3 individual add-ons of gold, silver and the colorless blender.

Simply Amazing Pan Pastel Card Tutorial | Isha Gupta
Here’s step by step how I made it!

Friday, December 30th, 2016
Hello Everyone!
It’s Isha and today I am sharing a card using the “Make Amazing Happen” collection. I love these flowers because they are wonderful to do various techniques with. As you know, the new FSJ catalog has some yummy Pan Pastels and I just simply had to use them!

∴ Apply a little light blue pan pastel to the whip cream mat layer.

∴ Stamp the big flower using watermark ink and apply pan pastel to it, using the small tool.
∴ Stamp the flower onto a post-it paper and fussy cut. We will use this as mask.
∴ Mask the flower and stamp it twice using the watermark ink. Apply pastel.

∴ Stamp the leaves and apply silver pan pastel.
∴ Stamp the smaller flowers and apply yellow and orange pastel.
∴ Flick some black ink onto it. Let dry.

∴ Die-cut the mat layer using the pierced rectangle dies.
∴ Stamp the sentiment onto a strip of vellum. Adhere to the mat layer.
∴ Adhere the mat layer to the card.

When creating with this Stamp set, I couldn't decide initially how I wanted the card to look.
Using Black Licorice Cardstock as the base,  a strip of River Stone, some Vellum, Bubblegum Satin Ribbon and this beautiful images stamped on Whip Cream Cardstock in Black licorice just is so beautiful.

Liquid Color Meetup

Orange Park Crafts & Card Meet Up

My Meetup Group created these cards using liquid color (3-5 drops)
Water spritzed onto the block
and  a Baby wipe to color in the background of their paper.

 First the ladies chose their stamp set they wanted to work with
then created a random stamped background

to fill that lovely white space they used the method described above with the liquid colors

Each person had their own technique to color in and their own take on  my sample.
Love it! Be creative! Get Crafty!
