FSJ Espresso Swirls with Glenda Calkins

Saturday, January 13, 2018

This was one of my cards I was thinking of doing for the swap. It didn’t make the cut. It was Okay and all I just liked yesterday’s Stay Wild card much better.

Isn’t it funny how you may LOVE a card and not so much another card; but someone else may love the card you didn’t like. I love how we are all different and have different taste and different styles.

I have learned a lot at this leadership conference, not only about how to run my stamping business but how to approach people differently. We are not all the same and we go about things differently. We all have to learn our strengths and weaknesses and learn how to appreciate them and grow and change some things.

One of the things I always tell people when I’m teaching a class is you may not like my style or my way of stamping; but I’m not here to teach you that. I’m here to teach you how to stamp and use the products. Once you know how to use the products and stamps take it and make it your own style.


This ATS stamp is one of the $75.00 Bloom Benefit stamps; meaning it is FREE with a min. $75.00 order.


I used the Bubble Wrap embossing folder on the Oatmeal Cookie background and then rubbed the Oatmeal Cookie ink pad over the top to give it some dimension and make it pop.

The Coffee Cup with colored using the Color Burst Pencils and then blending them with the Color Burst Blenders and Baby Oil.

If you haven’t seen the new Bloom This Way Mini yet check it HERE.


If you would like this month’s featured fun fold cards PDF file/video place a min. $25.00 Online Order with me and I’ll send you the Unlock Code to the Video and PDF file. PLUS your very own copy of the Bloom This Way Mini!

This is the FREE Love Letter Embossing Folder $100 level Bloom Benefit.

Here is the chart for the different tiers of Bloom Benefits:

On today’s card I opened the Embossing Folder up and applied the Sweet Berry ink pad directly to the embossing folder on the Raised Side. I then inserted a piece of Whip Cream card stock and ran it through the Journey Platinum.

I did get a little double image effect at the bottom but tied a piece of Black Satin ribbon around and added my sentiment. 🙂

The sentiment is from the Dear Rose Bundle.

I added a few of the New Fashion Silver drops to finish it off.

Here is your shopping list:

Click on the products you need and add them to your cart; when you reach $100.00 (before shipping and tax) you have earned the Love Letter Embossing Folder for FREE!

This embossing folder is so pretty that you can literally just use the embossed piece as your focal point on your card and just add a sentiment.

Oops Fish and the Fun Stampers Journey Color Splash technique!

Share Button

Friday, October 7, 2016

Since I’m giving away this super cute Oops Fish and coordinating Die I decided to make some more samples to share.

What giving away? You missed my blog candy post? Yes, for the last few days if you left me a comment or placed an online order you were entered into the drawing for the super cute Oops Fish and coordinating Die Bloom Benefit.

No worries, the winner will be announced on Sunday, October 9. Leave me a comment and you’ll be entered once; place an Online Order with me and you’ll be entered twice.

As I was looking at this little cutie fish I decided my Fun Stampers Journey Color Splash and clear block technique would be perfect for this little fish.

Here is the technique if you missed that video:

In the video I used the Bloom Flower but it also works with any other stamp set as well.

The colors I used on my fish sample was the Summer Days ink IP-0042 $7.95 on the block and then I used the Cool Pool Color Splash on top.

Instead of reinking the block with the Summer Days the second time I just sprayed my block with the Cool Pool Color Splash IP-0076 $7.95 and this was my results:
oops-cool-pool-copy
Not much of the yellow came through the second time; but still a pretty cute card.

I love to use the little wiggle eyes AC-0173 $2.95 on my fish.

The background cool pool card stock was run through the Journey Platinum inside the Ink Slash embossing folder EF-0008 $4.95.

The Oops fish and coordinating die are FREE Bloom Benefits.
Keep in mind with every $50.00 spent you will receive a Bloom Benefit for FREE!
