Inspired By…episode 1 – Fun Stampers Journey

I fell in love with the charming Thank You card on page 12 of the 2018 Spring into Summer mini catalog.   Contact me to learn how to receive a catalog or simply click on the image below to view an online version.

There   are just so many features of this card that I absolutely LOVE!   One of them is the gorgeous Charming Thank You die!  It is a $150 Host Exclusive item that you can purchase with Journey Rewards at an awesome deal of only $4.95!  You can reach that $150 level (and earn Bloom Benefits) by placing a single order or hosting a party!  Send me a message to learn more.

My creation is fairly different and I am thinking of creating another card that is more similar to the one that FSJ created.

I love how the Sunday Adventure Prints offers so many color combinations and how just changing the color of the butterfly can give the card a slightly different look or feel.

I spent a little time experimenting with some different color combinations and used both types of awesome pencils that Fun Stampers Journey offers.  The Color Burst pencils were used for the top strip and I just used the pencils to blend by overlapping the colors slightly.  I have not had these precious pencils for long and I need to learn/explore the different ways to blend but I think they blended very nicely on their own.  I used the Color Splash pencils on the bottom strip and explored how adding a little water really brightens the color – it really just makes the color more vibrant.  The Color Splash pencils look marvelous when used without water, too.

The Small Things Stamp Set has gorgeous butterflies and sentiments that just make a person smile.  I added the “I Totally Love You” sentiment to the envelope and “You’re every nice work I can think of” to the inside of the card along with a matching butterfly.

Fun Stampers Journey not only offered me the inspiration for this card, but also made it so easy to create by offering such awesome products like the white liner sheets that make adhering the Thank You so easy and quick!
