Decorative Doily Greeting Card – Fun Stampers Journey

Be Amazing Collection by Fun Stampers Journey with Alex Gomez

This month’s stamp of the month out of the Bloom Box is proving to be one of my favorites.  If you’ve followed my blog lately, you’ll see I was able to use it in my planner and for a Mother’s Day card.  Now I’ve created another card featuring our Be Amazing collection colors. I love the bright and fun colors from the Be Amazing collection available in our Inspiration Book & Catalog, please email me to request a copy of visit my online store to purchase one.

Card swap – Fun Stampers Journey – Alex Gomez

Using the re-inkers from the Be Amazing collection, I was able to create this vibrant background for today’s card.  I started out by applying a few drops of re-inker and used our fusion blender as well onto a piece of plastic.  I then dipped my stamps onto this plastic color palette.  I really liked the way the background turned out and hope to use this technique for my upcoming swaps at the Annual Fun Stampers Journey convention in June.

3 Ways to use Decorative Doilies Stamp Set – May 2017 Bloom Box – Fun Stampers Journey

May Bloom Box – Fun Stampers Journey

If you’ve been following my blog, you’ll remember that I shared the May 2017 Bloom Box exclusive card kits and stamp set on May 1st here.  The Bloom Box is just a fun piece of happy mail to look forward to every month.  You can create 4 beautiful cards and learn some techniques and tips that can be used again and again. I love the sentiments and doilies of this gorgeous Decorative Doily stamp set, best of all we were able to order a coordinating die set.

If you want a closer look at the May 2017 Bloom Box, be sure to check out my Crafty Lounge YouTube channel for the YouTube Unboxing video I filmed here.  I walk you through the box the Fun Stampers Journey Bloom Box comes in and show you all the contents.

Well, if you follow me over on Instagram at @alex_stamps, you’ll probably notice that I’m a bit of a #PlannerAddict.  Yep, I said it. I am Planner Obsessed!  I loved the exclusive stamp set in the May kit of the month so much that I had to use it in my latest planner layout.  I used my A5 Webster’s Pages exclusive Fun Stampers Journey planner to do a little bit of memory keeping here.

The third way I’ve already used this awesome stamp set is by making quick Mother’s Day note cards for my co-workers and family.  If you were here on the blog yesterday, you saw my quick project share featuring the Annual Celebration stamp set paired with this gorgeous Decorative Doily stamp set.  I hope you enjoyed some of the ideas I shared today and you’re inspired to create.
