Easy and Beautiful Card for any Occasion!

This is a beautiful and easy card that can be created for any occasion. The Artful Butterfly dies and Sentimental Prints stamp set along with the Spring Filled prints help make this card design perfect for any occasion or person and offers so much variety in the final card.

Have you noticed that changing the colors on a card can change the feel of the card.  The Spring Filled Prints has a wonderful variety of colors that offer the creator an opportunity to create a card perfect for any person or any event.

The first card has Watermelon Fusion for the butterfly and the second card  Summer Days for the butterfly.

I love how just changing the color of the butterfly helps to bring out different colors and gives the card a slightly different feel.   Changing the color of the card base and/or the printed paper would also change the feel of the card and gives you the opportunity to really personalize the card for that special person.  There are so many colors to choose from in Spring Filled Prints that you can probably create a card using their favorite color.

Here are the paper dimensions for this card:

Denim Days – 4 1/4 by 11 folded to create a 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 card,  2 1/4 by 3 1/2 and a small scrap about 1/2 by 1 1/4 to die cut the butterfly body

Whip Cream – 4 1/8 by 5 3/8 and 2 1/8 by 3 3/8

Coordinating cardstock of choice for butterfly body – 2 1/2 by 2 1/2

Vellum – 2 1/2 by 2 1/2

Spring Filled Prints – 1/4 by 3 3/8, 3/4 by 5 3/8, 4 1/8 by 5 3/8

Here is a video tutorial showing the creation of this card and the items used.

Black and White Anniversary card with Fun Stampers Journey products!

This black and white anniversary card is elegant and has a vintage feel.

I used a Black Licorice Card base that measures 4 1/4 by 11 and was folded in half to form a standard 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 size card.  The front and inside panel are Whip Cream Card stock that measures 4 by 5 1/4.  The front panel was random stamped with images from the Spring Botanicals set in the Bloom This Way Mini (you can save 10% when you purchase the bundle that includes the stamp set and coordinating dies).  I used the largest Oval die on a piece of Black Licorice that measured 4 1/4 by 3 1/4 and the second largest oval die after I stamped the couple on the bike onto a piece of Whip Cream Card stock that measured 2 3/4 by 3 1/2.  To add a pop of color, I die cut the heart banner from the Occasions Mini die set (Host Exclusive item) out of a piece of Pomegranate Splash that measured 3 1/2 by 1 1/4.

You can view a video of the creation of this card below.  If you enjoy this video, and would like to see more – please subscribe to my channel on YouTube.

Heart Shaped Valentine Card with FSJ!

Fun Stampers Journey offers so many awesome products to create stunning projects!  I was having so much fun with this heart shaped card that I couldn’t stop creating it with some slight variations!  This card is easy and quick but is stunning!!  It is also easy to mass produce!  The pictures below are of the shaped card on top of an A2 whip cream envelope.

The Everyday Script Stamp Set is full of sentiments in a gorgeous font and there is a coordinating die that allows for so many crafting options!  Purchasing those two items as a bundle also saves you 10%!

The Fun Stampers Journey Dies make creating a shaped card fun and easy!  I used the second largest heart die from the Heart-Felt Die set.  There is a coordinating Piercing set that you can purchase separately or you can save 10% and purchase it as a bundle!

In the card above, I used the Heart-Felt piercing die to add an unique feature along the edge of the heart.  The piercing does not go all the way through because there are two layers of paper but it still adds a nice decorative element to the card.

The sparkle tape really adds a wow factor to these cards!  I am absolutely amazed and in love with the whip cream sparkle tape!  I love how you get a different look just by adhering it to different colors of cardstock!  Check out the differences in the cards below:

Fun Stampers Journey also has sparkle tape in a variety of other colors.  One of the colors that coordinate with the Spring Filled Prints is Pool Play!  The Pool Play Sparkle Tape added so much to this card design!

Have you noticed the shimmer and shine on the sentiment?  Sparkle Silk can be used in a variety of ways!  To add that shimmer and shine, I just added a small amount to a clear block, then with a wet small blending brush, I simply painted that shimmer onto the sentiment.  The Black Licorice True Color Fusion Ink is perfect for this because it doesn’t smudge or smear!  It is a blend of dye and pigment – so water has no negative impact!

Creating this card is a great way to use of scraps of paper – strips of any size.  You may have noticed that the cards in this post are created using a variety of size strips.  On a couple of the cards, I used 3/4 inch wide strips, on one I used 1/2 inch wide strips and on another I used a variety of sizes and paper patterns.   There are endless creative possibilities with this card!

I created a video to share how to create this card and tips on how to mass produce it easily and quickly.  You can view the edited version here or head over to my Facebook page and watch a replay of the Facebook live creation of this card.  They are a little different – and you may learn something by watching both.  I invite you to like/subscribe to me on youtube and Facebook!
