Celebrating Mother’s Day – Mother’s Day Flower Petal Card – Fun Stampers Journey

Fun Stampers Journey Mother’s Day Card

Today I wanted to share a quick and easy card I made using a few of my favorite Fun Stampers Journey’s stamps and dies.  The May 2017 Bloom Box has quickly become one of my favorites.  As you can see on my latest YouTube video, I have used the stamp set in my planner layouts and also in my latest project for friends and family.

In today’s project share, I made a quick treat holder and card for my sister and my co-workers.

I cut a 3 by 3 square out of whip cream cardstock and used the new Decorative Doily stamp set to decorate the quick and easy Mother’s Day card.  I love the Annual Celebration Stamp set. It is definitely one of my favorite stamp sets.  I can use it all year long and it is a must have for your collection.

IMG_4161I added a bit of the new Sparkle Silk, I absolutely LOVE IT! My photograph really doesn’t do this silk any justice. It is an amazing product to add to your crafty closet.  I mounted the card onto my petal note envelope using white liner tape and voila! A quick and easy card to hand out to family and co-workers.  I even included a little ghirardehli treat and picture in each note I gave out.  I hope you’ll try this out as well, let me know if you do.  Share a project link below.

FSDivas Blog Hop – Christmas in July!

Christmas in July – Fun Stampers Journey by Alex Gomez

Hi Stampers, i’m back with a cute gift giving idea for the Holidays.  I know it’s only July, but the holidays will be here before you know it.  July is a perfect time to get started.

So I want to share a really quick an easy project I created for a crop/class event I am a part of called “Coffee and Crafts”.  Since theme was Christmas in July, I knew the perfect stamp set to use.  Our new bloom benefit stamp called “Christmas Mug” out of our Holiday Mini catalog.  It’s a set of 2 stamps, a “Merry Christmas” sentiment and a coffee mug that has a coordinating die set.  This stamp set along with the die cut can be earned for FREE by purchasing $50 of Fun Stampers Journey products out of our Annual Inspiration and Catalog book or our Holiday Mini Catalog.  Isn’t it adorable and perfect for the Holidays? You can create a little gift pack with hot cocoa, marshmallows and a gift card to your favorite coffee shop.  I just love it!

Below are some photos from the event.  I was able to craft and meet new friends. I also was joined by some of my team of Fun Stamping Divas.  It’s always great when I get to share the journey with some friends.

Dia De Los Muertos ATC

I was tIMG_7582.JPGhrilled when the new Day Of The Dead stamp set was introduced at The Grand Event in Pomona last weekend. Here’s a photo of the actual set and as you can see we now offer indexed stamps. This stamp set is perfect for my upcoming ATC trades and cards in a Halloween or Spooky theme.

Sugar Skulls, Journey Glaze and Journey Glitter

I am part of a group where we pick a new ATC every 15 days and the latest theme was Red, Orange and Yellow. So I decided I would use the sugar skulls in my new stamp set to fit the theme. I got to stamping and this is what I came up with. First I stamped out the sugar skulls on various cardstock. Second I fussy cut out the skulls so that I could have various layers. Once I layered appropriately I used Journey Glaze and Glitter to finish them off.

I decided to cut out a background layered shape using my Spellbinders dies. I also used a Spellbinders Embossabilities folder to get dimension in the black mat layer. Here is the final product. Hope you all like them and if you have any questions, feel free to comment below.

Here’s a list of the products I used.  Paper trimmer by Fun Stampers Journey. Ink in Whip Cream and Black Licorice by Fun Stampers Journey. Cardstock in Candy Apple, Tangerine Fusion, Black Licorice and Banana Cream.  To order any of the these products, visit my replicated site at Fun Stampers Journey using my Coach #39.  http://www.funstampersjourney.com/39

Thanksgiving pocket card trade

http://www.funstampersjourney.com/alexThis past weekend I made 16 Thanksgiving pocket cards to trade with my fellow Journey Coaches.

In making my card I wanted to stay away from orange and browns since I figured others would choose those colors. It was a challenge to stay away from those colors. I decided to pick something that reminded me of fall, cinnamon and cranberry sauce.

Products used: Candy Apple cardstock and ink, Oatmeal Cookie cardstock and ink, Autumn Days stamp set, Give Thanks stamp set, Thxgiving die, Journey Glaze and glitter.
