I'll Take a Donut and Coffee (or Tea) Please

Fun Stampers Journey has some of the best stamps sets to mix and match!  A perfect example is the Donut Worry stamp set and the Coffee Helps set.  Here is a perfect example.  I actually created two projects with these sets. Who wouldn't like a gift card to their favorite coffee/tea shop or donut shop?


On the card, I started out with a Whip Cream base and added a mat of Bubble Gum card stock. With a piece of Oatmeal Cookie card stock, I stamped the three donut stamp using Hazelnut Blend ink to create a fun and funky background.  On top of that I placed a strip of Bubble Gum cardstock and wrapped Bubble Gum satin ribbon and Natural Twine around all the mats and attached to the base card.  I tied two small bows and added them with glue dots.  I then stamped the takeout cup and three donut stamp onto Whip Cream cardstock with Hazelnut Blend Ink.  They were colored using Color Burst colored pencils.  Jouney Glaze was added to the icing on the donuts and the heart on the take out cup.  The donuts were then covered with Sparkle Cuts to give the affect of sugar.  If you want to make your take out cup tea instead of coffee,  simply add the small die cut tea bag from the Coffee First die set and I added a small heart to the tag using the Heart Punch and Candy Apple cardstock.  The sentiment was  stamped on Whip Cream cardstock with Hazelnut Blend ink and added some Candy Minis in purple and pink and white dots from Party Burst Dots.


The gift card holder/tag was made in the same way.  I used the Scalloped Pocket die.  The white piece on the front was created by simply cutting just that section of the pocket die using whip cream.  The remainder was created the same as the card.  


Now there is some sad news!  The Donut Worry stamp and die sets are retiring!!!!!  That is true.  They will no longer be available after June 30, or while supplies last.  So if you like this bundle, order now, or, you can gamble and wait until May 1 when it along with all the other retiring items will be on sale.  But, these are on a while supply lasts basis.  Once they are gone, they are gone for good.  I will be blogging the complete retirement list soon, so stay tuned!

I hope you liked these two projects and will give them a try yourself.  Please leave me a comment below and let me know what you think!

Thinking of you in shades of brown

I love the warmth of the colors used on this particular card, they look so lovely together.  I knew I waned a floral theme, so chose the Peony Blooms stamp set for this particular card.


Starting with an oatmeal cookie base, I stamped one of the smaller floral stamps from the set all over the oatmeal cookie with hazelnut blend to create this pretty background design.  Using the fancy label die set, I cute a larger hazelnut blend piece and a smaller butter cream piece.  I then stamped the larges floral stamp onto the butter cream piece using hazelnut blend and the sentiment with the same ink on a scrap of buttercream.  For the embellishments I added oatmeal cookie ribbon and natural thread.  The floral piece was popped up using foam squares.  



This card was so quick and easy to create and makes a beautiful presentation.  What do you think?  Can you imagine it done in different colors?  Please leave me a comment below and let me know what you think!

Having Fun with Stay Sassy!

Fun Stampers Journey Stay Sassy stamp set is soon becoming one of my favorite new stamp sets from the Spring into Summer mini catalog.  The images are so fun to color and very versatile.  I had fun playing with pinks on today's sassy card.


I started with a whip cream card base and then added a mat of bubble gum pink.  (You know pink is my favorite color!)  I wanted a striped background, so I cut 1/4" strips of whip cream card stock and glued them onto the bubblegum card stock 1/2" apart.  I love the look!  I then used our square filmstrip die which I cut from black licorice card stock and used the square die which is included to cut a piece of whip cream for the center. I stamped on my image and colored it with my color burst colored pencils.  I think the black on the soft pink creates a very striking affect.  The final touch was the watermelon fusion and bubble gum  pink flower and leaves cut from kiwi slice card stock all using the blooming details die.  I then added a sparkle drop the the center of the flower and called it done!

Being a big fan of pink, this card really speaks to me!  I must say I love how it turned out.  If pink is not your color, well Fun Stampers Journey has lots of other colors to choose from!

Love to Travel? Well Pack your Bags Because Adventure Awaits

Fun Stampers Journey's new Spring into Summer Catalog has a complete section entitled Sweet Vagabond which is just loaded with stamps, dies, papers, and embellishments to create some of the most beautiful travel and adventure related paper crafts.  If you haven't seen these products, you just might want to check them out.  Today's card features  products from that section.



 I started out with an oatmeal cookie base card and added a mat of heart shaped maps  from our Sunday Adventure Printed Paper.  I just loved the suitcase stamp from the Good Karma stamp set, so I stamped them on whip cream card stock, colored them with  color burst pencils,  They were then cut out using Journey circle dies.  I cut a larger circle with the matching piercing die out of pool play card stock.  Then using foam squares, I popped it up for some dimension.





The adorable wooden vagabond chips (plane and suitcase) were colored using color splash pencils and then tied to a twine bow.  The sentiment was then added and I considered it done.


I have included a couple extra photos so that you can see the details on this card.  I really love how the pool play and oatmeal cookie card stock coordinates with the printed paper.  I hope you like it too!
