Minnie Mouse Punch Art & Brayer Embossed Technique with Glenda Calkins

Share Button

Wednesday, September 27, 2017

I love how Sophia’s Birthday Card turned out so much I decided to make another Minnie Mouse Punch Art card and this time I added the technique from yesterday the Brayer Embossed Technique on my background.

I used the I Heart embossing folder and brayered it with Candy Apple ink.

I also did the same technique to her little Bow but it’s hard to see that in the picture.

The bow is from the Create a Bow Mini.

The sentiment is from the Cake Time stamp set.

If you missed yesterday’s video on this technique you can view HERE.

Fun Stampers Journey Bloom Box for September Hello Sunflower with Glenda Calkins

Share Button

Sunday, September 24, 2017

Long Post Lot’s to Tell You About!

I normally don’t post on Sunday; that’s my 1 day of the week I do not post otherwise I post everyday.

But I decided to post today because of 2 reasons:

– If you noticed today’s card is the Lovely Hello Sunflower stamp set which is the Bloom Box for September. I heard there might be a few extra left; so place your order for it TODAY! I’ll send you this gorgeous card if you do. 🙂

It is my Birthday today!
I treated myself to a little vacation with a bunch of my friends from Stampin’ Up! Yes, we are all friends. Like I’ve told you before I just changed who I purchase my supplies from I’m still a rubber stamper, scrapbooker, card maker just like I’ve always been. It’s no different than shopping at different grocery stores, department stores or craft stores. We all love to shop around; it helps everyone to stay in business. I love to spend time with my Stamping Friends both old and new friends.

There are 2 ways you can enjoy the Bloom Boxes:
– Become a Subscriber
When you are a Bloom Box subscriber each and every month you will receive a full size stamp set, all the consumables to create 4 gorgeous fun cards, an instruction booklet with color printed instructions plus a video from Richard with tips and tricks to assemble your cards. All this for only $24.95 plus shipping and tax Order #KO-0002! To ensure your delivery make sure to subscribe before the 15th of the month.

– Purchase by the Month
If a subscription isn’t your thing than you can pick and choose which months you would like to get the kit and place your order for the Bloom Box kit month by month KO-0003 $29.95 plus shipping and Tax. The only stipulation is if you like the kit for the month you better order it fast because when the kits are gone they are gone! So the only way to insure that you will receive the kit is to be a subscriber and it’s cheaper too!

To subscribe to the Bloom Box go to my website: www.funstampersjourney.com/glendacalkins and click on Bloom Box KO-0002 $24.95 plus shipping and tax. This is a 6 month commitment and each month you will receive a FULL size stamp set and consumables to create 4 cards using different techniques.

FSJ Punch Art Minnie Mouse with Glenda Calkins

Share Button

Monday, September 18, 2017

So my little granddaughter Sophia turned 1 on Saturday and when I found out the Theme was Minnie Mouse I had to change my card plans and create a little Punch Art Minnie Mouse card.

Too cute; it’s hard to see in the picture but I used the Embossed Embedding Techniques coming up in my techniques class. To do this technique I used the I Heart Embossing Folder.

I created the Minnie with the Circle Dies and Circle Punches.

The little Pink Bow is from the Create a Mini Bow die set.

The Happy Birthday is from the Cake Time stamp set.

We all had a lot of fun at Sophia’s party she is one spoiled little girl.

Pretty casual driver; hahaha

Sneak Peek to Tomorrow’s Technique Class!

Share Button

Wednesday, September 13, 2017

This is a sneak peek for tomorrow’s technique. I used the Color Splash Background technique.

I die cut the Presents out of the Color Splash Background Technique using the “For You” die found in the Holiday mini. I’m using the presents as Birthday Presents not Christmas Presents. It’s a die so make it for whatever occasion you need some presents for. They could be Wedding Presents; Anniversary Presents; Engagement Presents; etc. I have you thinking now don’t I? No one said they could only be Christmas Presents. 🙂

I love the Tie Dyed look I got from this background.

The Happy Birthday Sentiment is from the Sentimental Prints stamp set. I embossed it using White Embossing powder on the Dark Roast card stock.

This cute card is for my granddaughter Sophia who turns One on Saturday.

Stay tuned tomorrow for the video on this fun technique!

Trio of Beauty Blooms with Glenda Calkins

Share Button

Wednesday, August 23, 2017

Okay are you sick of this stamp set yet? I know I’m not! This is day 3 of my Beauty Blooms stamp set.

I actually have limited supplies at the cottage so this has been a little bit of a challenge for me to come up with different looking cards using the stamp set and minimal inks and supplies but I like them all!

Here’s my trio if you have missed my blog post lately:

Today’s card I used the new Corrugated Embossing Folder and rubbed over the top of it using Oatmeal Cookie ink. This brings out the corrugated texture and adds a little distressed look and feel to the card.

I added a little Citrus Cooler Silk to the corrugated background.

I tied the Citrus Cooler Ribbon in the front.

The flowers were stamped on Summer Days card stock and then centers were daubered with a little Citrus Cooler ink. I hand cut them out and popped them up on a the Whip Cream card stock that was stamped using Fresh Forest ink.

To finish it off I added a little pearl to the flower centers.

Here’s your shopping list for today’s card:
