Sketch Challenge - SC628

Once I find a layout I like, I do have a tendency to use it over and over and then I feel like all my cards look the same.  Sketch challenges force you out of the comfort zone which is sometimes a good thing and sometimes not so much, but when I saw this sketch on Splitcoast Stampers, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it.   It uses one of the sets I got in my Fun Stampers Journey starter kit called  "Hey Honey"  
FSJ has made me love stamping all over again and I truly don't understand why more people aren't talking about this company and their products.  Those Color Silks alone...
We have an amazing Journey Bucks promotion going on right now where you can use the promo code JMWJB50 to get $50 off the regular price of the Amaze or Platinum kits.  Join the journey and come bloom with me.

CAS(E) this Sketch #206

Here's the sketch:

And here's my take - and let there be no mention of the many versions that I went through before settling on this....  

Love You So Much

Friday was happy mail day :)  New stamping supplies and more Color Silks for my collection.  Why are more people not talking about this amazing product?  

I didn't really know what to expect when the first cute little bottle showed up - but that's why I ordered it.  Love at first splash!  Now only a month later the collection has quadrupled in size and I won't be completely happy until I own them all.  No card seems complete to me without those little splashes, but that's not the only way you can use it.  You can add it directly to your stamps, and you can use it with baby wipes to create a watercolor effect.  Looking forward to experimenting more as my collection grows!

And here's my card:

This uses the cute little raccoon from the FSJ Creature Comforts set and some cute polka dot card stock from A Muse Studio.   Life IS better with friends, wouldn't you agree?

CAS(E) This sketch #204

Joining Fun Stampers Journey has rebooted my love for stamping and I am so grateful for that.  Part of that love included playing along with challenges and I am delighted to find some of my favorite challenge blogs are still active.  This is my entry for CAS(E) This Sketch # 204 using the cake stamp which is part of the FSJ "To You" stamp set which was part of my starter kit.  Isn't it adorable?

Amazing Memories Amazing 30% off sale!

An interest in preserving memories was sort of a gateway drug into the world of papercrafting for me, but I got sidetracked along the way and never really got in to it as much as I thought I would,  Maybe this promotions  is a sign the time is right?  Check out this video to view some of the available items.  I've also loaded a shopping list. with the SKU #'s included on to the sidebar.  If you don't have a catalog, there is a copy of that on the sidebar also.  All the products can be purchased 24/7 from
my  Fun Stampers Journey website.

Thistle Do It!

This stamp is the reason I am a brand new Journey Coach.
I've been looking for a thistle stamp for the longest time.  Although I live (very happily) in Florida, I'm Scottish and the thistle is our national emblem.  Thistle stamps are surprisingly hard to find so when I saw this in the Fun Stampers Journey catalog, I knew it must be mine.  I was also in the market for a new red stamp pad for my Christmas card making and someone had recommended the FSJ Candy Apple red so I added that to the order too, along with a few other things and before I knew it I was right there at a $50 order.
Did you know that a $50 investment can allow you to join Fun Stampers Journey?  It's perfect for people like me who have been stamping for some time and have already gathered some of the things included in the other kits, plus one of the choices of included stamp sets was already on my wish list.  I didn't have to think about that for too long - it's called Crafters Math and I bet you know exactly what I mean!

And since this is such a VIP stamp, here's another version. That little bottle in front looks like it might be nail polish but it's not, it's FSJ silk.  We'll discuss the lusciousness which is FSJ silks on a different day because today is all about the thistle.

Bringing back the blog..

The beginning of a new year is the perfect time for new beginnings, new adventures and new journey's don't you agree?

After a long hiatus (the last post is from 2012!!) I've rediscovered my love of stamping and a new company to bring fresh inspiration so that seems reason enough to bring back the blog.

I thought of starting all over because what has gone before is such a mish mash of everything but one of the things I really like about Fun Stampers Journey is that they don't have such strict restrictions on what you can and can't do so that decision was mine to make and in the end I decided to keep what I had and add to it.

FSJ is new to me and maybe new to you too.  We'll take the journey together!

100 Cards In 100 Days Challenge - completed!


My 100 cards in 100 days challenge is completed!  I squeaked in by the skin of my teeth, with 6 hours to spare and some of the cards I made in that last mad dash were duplicates or just had very minor changes, but I did it.
To be honest, I found the pressure of HAVING to create 10 cards in one afternoon a little stressful !  Lots of time spent creating nothing much that I liked led me to a quick dash to my LSS, where I found some new Tim Holtz stamps, which found their way in to my basket.  They have been on my wish list for some time now so I rewarded myself for finishing my challenge in anticipation of doing so using my new stamps.  Follow the logic there?
Anyhow, here are the last 3 cards made for the challenge.  Thanks for hanging in with me until the very end.
