What TIME is it?  It's time for a Holiday Card Buffet!

Making Halloween cards just brings out the kid in me!!  I love the Jack O Lanterns staring so eerily and the Ghosts just DYING to scare the breath out of you!

I reminisce about the good clean fun we had as kids; contemplating our costumes which of course were designed ourselves out of whatever we could put together which was half the fun!
The scary shows during October which were scary-friendly, not the unbearable fright in shows today!  Yes I'm a sissy, Casper and The Great Pumpkin were the bomb!!

Here's a picture of some of the cards we will be making Saturday at Bob's Big Boy in Calimesa.  My sister and I will be bringing 12 cards to chose from.  Guests will be making 6 cards and enjoying a Soup and Salad Buffet along with the Holiday Card Buffet!!
Halloween, Fall & Christmas themed cards that will make this Holiday Season start of with a touch of homemade.

I just LOVE the Ghostly Treats Bundle from Fun Stampers Journey.
The matching die cuts make this card a HOWLING easy to make.  I've layered some acetate sheets to give dimension.  I cased this from another Journey Coach (thank you again) on Facebook.  You can't tell from the photo but when you turn it back and forth it gives is a SPOOKY movement. 

And nothing is 'SCARIER" than this Scary Tags Set!  I had fun using the Holiday Box Window Plates Spider Web die along with the Palace Trim 3-D embossing folder to make this fun Halloween card just SCREAM creepy Halloween wishes!!  

I hope this has started your Halloween season off with some great ideas.  To see more of what Fun Stampers Journey has to make your Holiday Season filled with creativity, check out my website:

What TIME is it?  It's JOURNEY time!

I'm so EXCITED about my new Fun Stampers Journey Halloween stamps.  I have been having a WICKED time making some SPOOKY cards!!

I'm planning a Holiday Card Buffet featuring Halloween and Christmas cards.
Here is one using the Ghostly Treats Bundle out of the Journey Holidays mini catalog!!
Guests will get to choose six cards out of twelve to Make and Take home!

On this card I've stamped and layered two FSJ Clearview Sheets.  It gives my little friend some SPOOKY movement!

Think this is FUN?  Wait until you see the rest!!

What TIME is IT?  It's Halloween Time!!

I don't know why Halloween is SO much FUN!!  Second to Christmas it's my favorite time to PLAY!!  Maybe it's the bewitching colors, maybe its the SCARY TAGS! 

I had an AMAZING time creating this Halloween card to submit for the
Can You Case It Challenge #132 for the week of August 7th!

I received my Fun Stampers Journey order and can't stop playing with all my Halloween Stamps and Dies!!  What an assortment!!

This card uses the SCARY TAGS stamp set, along with the HOLIDAY BOX WINDOW PLATES, the PALACE TRIM - 3D Embossing Folder, some PINK WORLD Journey Sequins and of course a YUMMY Rainbow Drop!!

The sentiment is from the ALL too FUN Jack O Lanterns Bundle!!  How FUN!!

 Runs With Scissor Ink

I colored my tag using a FSJ Blender Pen and Limeade Splash and Grape Fusion reinkers!!  I cut out the oval center and the DEADLY Nightshade sentiment, (stamped in Pomegranate Splash) sponged them with Black Licorice ink and popped them up with some FSJ Journey Foam Squares!!

I threaded some Black Journey Twine through a small hole I made with my Bloom Tool, simply thread the twine through with a Floss Threader!  (An AMAZING tool you can find in your Toiletry Departments next to the floss!)

What TIME is it??  It's Mermaid Wishes TIME!!

What a JOURNEY it would be, to be a MERMAID under the SEA!!

I know I posted her below, but this is just a quick MERMAID update!!

I couldn't be more excited!!  Fun Stampers Journey now has COLOR SPLASH watercolor pencils and if you're in the mood for a BLAST of color, check out our COLOR BURST Pencils!! You can find them on page 278 of our AMAZING new catalog!!

I personally find watercolor pencils SO much more forgiving and easier to use than markers!

Haven't seen the new 317 page Fun Stampers Journey Inspiration Catalog??

What TIME is it???  
It's Mermaid Wishes Time!!

Back in the 70's (I was VERY, VERY young) I remember the lady across the street cutting out several different layers of the same picture of a little girl with a bonnet and stacking them on top of each other on top of a framed picture.  It was quite remarkable, enough that I remembered it the minute I saw some cards at the Expo using the same technique... only now we get to color our own images!

It's my first attempt, not perfect but you will get the idea.  Basically you pop up each layer with FSJ Foam squares making different parts of the image lower than others.  Once I master this technique I will post a video.
The AT Stamp Set is a FREE Bloom Benefit.  For every $50 in merchandise you purchase from my site, you get to pick a FREE Bloom Benefit!!

Visit my site to see what else Fun Stampers Journey has to offer!!  
It's Blooming Amazing!!

I put a SPLASH of FUN with FSJ's Limeade Splash!!  You simply spray on the fun!

Available in several FUN colors!
And who could resist the YUMMY Rainbow Drops!

I've posted these before, but I just LOVE these brilliant FUN embellishments!!

Hope you enjoyed this Journey!!  Please visit my site at www.funstampersjourney/JourneyTime

What TIME is it???  It's JOURNEY Time!!

Had a WONDERFUL time with my Journey Time Club this weekend!

Each time I open my Fun Stampers Journey catalog, I just WANT IT ALL!!  But I did start with some FUN items and my group had an AMAZING time!

I couldn't WAIT to get the Pocket Envelope Die!  Had no idea it would be 20% off this month so I couldn't have planned it BETTER, my scrap buddies were thrilled!

And WHO could resist this chocolate bunny?  I just love the cute ATS stamps Fun Stampers Journey offers!  
There WAS a Ghirardelli Chocolate Caramel Square in the front
pocket, but it looks like someone ran off with it!!

And do you SEE what I see?  I just LOVE those Rainbow Drops!!  Everyone just LOVED these BRIGHT beautiful embellishments!!

I hope your JOURNEY is everything you want it to be!!  

Thanks for being a part of mine!

What TIME is IT??  It's JOURNEY Time!!

I just had an AMAZING time at Fun Stampers Journey's 

I met SO many wonderful people, ate SO much delicious food, snacks and MORE!  
Including an Ice Cream Social!!

Not to mention the GIVEAWAY's, product demo's and make and takes!!   
Look for a Be Amazing Tour coming to your area!!

I created this card below using an exclusive Commemorative Stamp from the Be Amazing Tour! Combined with the 'FREE with any $50 purchase on my site' - Star Marque ATS stamp, 
this is SURE to be an ENCOURAGEMENT to someone special!! 
Add a little Journey Glaze and some Sparkle Dust
and this card just screams AMAZING!

WAIT till you see what FSJ has coming in the near future!!  

I used the Journey Blooms tape for the first time and I can tell you I was extremely impressed!
It's like everything Richard Garay introduces is the BEST of the BEST!!

I'm SO glad I'm on this Journey!!

FSJ Birthday Sketches!

Well it was another BEAUTIFUL day here in Cherry Valley, California!!

I thought'd I'd venture out to my Scrap Shack and play awhile.  Although I have been stamping and creating for more than 10 years and my Shack is filled to the brim with FUN things to do, I just started with Fun Stampers Journey so I only have a few things.  SO FAR!!

I decided to see what I could do with the Birthday Sketches set.  It's SO cute!!

So although I used a 'few' outside FSJ parts, I hope you enjoy this Birthday card.  Itt was sunny and bright outside, however the Journey Glaze on some of the balloons and the popped up cherry doesn't show very well.  It really added depth and shine to my project!!

Next stop Photo-Taking 101!

I hope this inspires you, and feel free to take a look at my Fun Stampers Journey website to see what else FSJ has to offer!

What TIME is it???  It's JOURNEY TIME!!

What a beautiful day out here in Cherry Valley, California!!   How relaxing to watch our animals... Lolly and Cookie our Nigerian Dwarf Goats and their man of the house Carlito.... as well as our pot bellied pigs, Fran being the mother of the pen... she's just SO comical.  I often wonder how can an animal so really not pretty be SO adorable!

And a handful of roosters and seven chickens... giving us FRESH eggs every morning... what could be more comforting???  Playing with ink and paper!!  That's WHAT!!  It takes me to a place even MORE beautiful!

Today I created my first card using only what came in my Fun Stampers Journey coaches kit!!  I did add some ribbon I had on hand, but then added to the bow by sponging my FSJ Twine across the Pomegranate Splash True Fusion Ink Pad!! Look how beautiful it came out!

I was also able to permanently change the color of my Rhinestones by using the back of a pencil and sponging the Pomegranate Splash onto my blind!!  I let it dry a few moments, then I adhered the now Pomegranate Rhinestones onto my ribbon using our FSJ Journey Glaze!

See the difference below!

It was quite fun spending the morning creating with basically just my kit!!  I can't imagine how much fun I will have when I begin to build my Fun Stampers Journey business!!

I hope you have a WONDERFUL long weekend, and remember to ALWAYS... 
Enjoy the Journey!!

And JOURNEY over to my website to see all the Fun Stampers Journey 
has to offer:
