FSJ Birthday Melody Pennant Easel Card

Hello crafty friends,
I hope you are having a wonderful day!  Today I am sharing this super pretty card I created with some Fun Stampers Journey Products!


Here’s a look at my completed card. It is in the shape of a banner and I made it into an Easel Card.

SUPPLIES FOR BANNER EASEL Card

I started by cutting out the base with my largest banner die from the Oatmeal Cardstock Then I cut the same size out in my Whip Cream Cardstock. I trimmed off a quarter of an inch from each side. This way the white mat would be the same size in height.

I then used my cloud die and the cool pool ink and very lightly dabbed some ink around the edge of the cloud die. This gives the background that very soft sky look. Here is a picture of the background. Not very good as I didn’t think to take a photo of the background until afterward Sad smile

Next I used the Birthday Melody Stamp Set set and my Black Licorice Ink Pad. I stamped out several of the tree branches. I used the second generation stamping technique as I didn’t want the branches to be too dark. I then softly colored and shaded them with Colored Pencils I cut the branches into several shapes and pieces so that I could have a nice spray move across the front of the card.

I then stamped several of the flowers with my Watermelon Fusion Ink Pad. I lightly colored them in with my Colored Pencils and then fussy cut several of them out and scattered them along the branches.

Next, I went to work on my little birdy. I stamped him with some Black Licorice Ink and then I colored him in with some Watercolor Pencils. I fussy cut him out and then fussy cut his wing and his tail a second time. I wanted to layer them to give him a little more dimension. In this photo you can also see that I used my Journey Craft Glue and dotted the middle of my flowers with some FSJ Sparkle Dust.

Next I created this fun “banner” by die cutting a Banner Parade Die shape out. I “rolled” it onto a tooth pick and then used my Journey Twine Natural to add a couple of bows on each end. I also “shaped” it by gently curving it to give it a little dimension. I used my Black Licorice Ink  to stamp the sentiment and the sweet little line of musical notes.

I then added a set of banners from the banner die set to the top corner. I then used a Confectionery Blooms Embellishment to top of the Journey Twine Natural Bow.

For the bottom of the card, I layered two banner shapes on top of each other. One in Whip Cream Cardstock and on in Oatmeal Cardstock. I trimmed off the sides of the oatmeal one. I then adhered some of the pretty little stamped flowers onto each one. I used some Foam Squares to give it all some lift so that it would help the top of the card sit erect.  I then cut one last panel in Whip Cream Cardstock and used it as the mat for the inside so I can write a message to the recipient on it.

Paper House & MSE Quick & Easy Cards


Hello crafty friends, Thank you for joining me today! I am sharing a couple of super quick and easy cards I created using the ever fabulous Paper House Papers and Stickers. Plus we were given the opportunity to work with the a set of stamps from My Sentiments Exactly.


Supplies Used Birthday Card



Supplies Used Love Card


Paper House Productions MSE Stamp Card
For my first card I used the sweet and fun papers from the Hello Baby Girl Paper Crafting Kit. I just love all the prints in this kit. So pretty! I used the prints for the main focus of the card. I then had fun adding layers of circles in various colors.

Here is a closer look at the stamped sentiment. I love the mix of fonts. Both playful and elegant. This sentiment is perfect for some many types of birthday wishes!

Take a closer look at the adorable puffy hot air balloon sticker! I just LOVE these stickers. I can’t resist touching them.

Now for my second card. The white cardstock base is 5.5 x 5.5. I then turned to my Sliced Love Paper Pad and cut out the patterned paper mats. I then used the coloring frame included in the stamp set to stamp out the beautiful floral frame and sentiment in a coordinating ink. I have to say I thought these stamps stamped beautifully. The quality of their images is fantastic!

I then colored it in with my Spectrum Noir Clear Glitter Brush Pen. I couldn’t capture the sparkle on camera but it is there! It adds such a soft and elegant shimmer.

Look at the pretty banner sticker that is also included in the paper pad!

FSJ Fun Stampers Journey Flower Rose Stamp Card Idea
This fun card is a standard A2 size. I started with a base of black licorice cardstock. I then created a plain white mat from some whip cream cardstock. The bold and pretty patterned paper is from the project me prints paper pack. I then created the fun scalloped border and cut it out of some whip cream cardstock. I then cut a couple of thin strips of black licorice cardstock.

Supplies Used
SVG File For Scalloped Border
Cricut Explore

FSJ Fun Stampers Journey Flower Rose Stamp Card Idea
The focal point of the card features the beautiful stamped image from the Sentimental Prints Stamp Set. I stamped the rose image with my Watermelon Fusion Ink. I then used some pearl embellishments to dress it up. You can get some like these by purchasing the pearl adhesive backed stickers. They come in 3 sizes!  Finally, I stamped the sentiment with my black licorice ink on some whip cream cardstock. I used my corner rounder to round the edges and some foam squares to give it a little lift. That’s it! Easy Peasy, Lemon Squeezy!! I PROMISE…. I will get my act together and share the little scalloped border cut file with you very soon! Until then, you have to TAKE A LOOK at the FANTASTIC NEW CATALOG from Fun Stampers Journey!
