Cottage Bloom

Hi Friends...
Happy Sunday, even though the day is rainy and dreary here, it's the perfect day to craft, stamp and create.  So today I thought I would share a card made with the new Cottage Bloom Die Set just released in the new 2018/19 Catalog and Inspiration book, which you view in my side bar. The die set reminds me of daisy's and with a little flower shaping they take on a 3 dimensional look...
I used a cushioned mat and my journey bloom tool with the stylus attachment. Flip the blooms over to the backside and with the stylus pull from the tip of each petal to the end of each petal, once completed the flower will look like a cup, flip over to the front side and in the center with your stylus go in a circular motion and your done. Do this for each die cut flower. Stack off setting each flower and glue together. I layered 3 for the first flower using, the largest, medium and next size down, and for the second flower I used the second largest and next size glued together and put aside, than made a second one using the two smallest and glued together off-setting each layer, than glued the two sets together making a 4 layer flower. I used Pomegranate Splash and our newest color Haystack Cardstock for each flower and Haystack for card base, Whip Cream for layering mat, strip of licorice and strip of printed paper from the Cozy Prints paper stack. The sentiment is from Spread Love stamped in Pomegranate Splash.

Step it up by adding some foliage behind the flowers, I used licorice and mirrored c/s and bloom benefit die (poppy bud die set) that you can get FREE with a $50 order...Shop here

I used the colors above because I wanted to get a start on some fall cards...I kept it simple using the flowers as a focal point...love to hear what you think!

Be creative today,

Make A Wish

Hi Friends,
Today has been a busy day, when the weather cools down it seems I have bounds of energy and from what I understand we will have a couple more days like this until it goes back in the 90's next week.
So I thought I would pop in here to share this card with you today...

I used making tape and a dauber to create the blue strip...when I removed the tape I had clean lines, oh so pretty. I than stamped the dandelions and sentiment in black ink and the rest is all layering.
Fast, Easy, and Clean...The stamp set is from Fun Stampers Journey.

I hope you liked today's card and you get crafty this weekend!

Hi Friends,
I started this blog a year ago with the intention of sharing my paper craft projects with all of you. For several reasons I've neglected my blog and really haven't shared much of anything and for that I'm truly sorry. With that being said I hope to start sharing my love for paper, inks and stamps. Of course with Summer being right around the corner, everyone is busy enjoying the outdoors and getting our yards spruced up, planting our flower beds and planning outdoor activities including myself. So my plan is to at least post something twice a week. I promise to at least try to be consistent.

To kick off the warmer weather and Spring I thought I would share this card with you...
I used a punch to create the flowers and a die for the leaves. I embossed the background using a stencil


and running it through the big shot like an embossing folder. I added some pearls  and stamped the sentiment.

Important Anouncement

Hi Friends...







The above announcement was posted by Fun Stampers Journey on their Facebook page yesterday.   I am passing it on to all of you so that you are aware of the changes within the company. Richard Garay has been a major inspiration for me during my time as a Journey Coach.    He will be greatly missed.   He has inspired so many of us.   Keeping Richard and his family in our thoughts and prayers.   Thank you, Richard, for all that you did for us as Coaches.

I love FSJ's Products they are top notch in my opinion but as a paper crafter, I love many products. Though I have a couple of people in my group, we all do this as a hobby. In the past I have refrained from posting projects using other products however, I love to make pretty things and I love to use all kinds of products from many companies. Today is a new day with all kinds of possibilities...I will be sharing my projects and starting up card classes using the products that I love and I will follow my heart. Life is too short...be happy and enjoy whatever path you take!

Have a beautiful creative day,
Sandy
