Today’s technique in my Online Techniques class is the PanPastels and Stencils.

If you have never tried the PanPastels I encourage you to give them a try. They are so fun to work with and make coloring in your images quick and easy.

PanPastels are so creamy and a little goes a long way. These are very different than the chalks we had back in the day; you will LOVE these!

I chose the Storybook Occasions stamp set for today’s card. This is my featured stamp set for January and has four different occasions in the set so you will have your holiday’s covered. This adorable bunny is sweet for your Valentine cards and treat holders. You also have St. Patrick’s Day, Easter and Birthday all in the same stamp set.

The Stencil I used is the Heart Wall and the PanPastel is the Candy Apple from the Party Pop PanPastels. The Heart Wall stencil is an 8 1/2″ X 11″ stencil so a bigger stencil to do larger cards or scrapbook pages with.

FSJ Lovely Day with Glenda Calkins

Share Button

Monday, January 15, 2018

I was asked to teach a class out my local library the end of this month. They will be making 2 cards and this is one of the cards they will be making.

I’m trying to keep the cards simple because I’m not sure how many are first time stampers.

I love the Lovely Day ATS stamp and it makes some beautiful cards.

I used the PanPastels to accent the center of the flowers.

The background was embossed using the Love Stripes embossing folder.

The finishing touch was the Pearls.

FSJ Stay Wild Masculine Card with Glenda Calkins

Share Button

Friday, January 12, 2018

This was my swap for the Amazing Bloomers group last night. What or Who are the Amazing Bloomers? This is the team name for Deb Valder’s group. I signed up with Fun Stampers Journey under Deb so I’m an Amazing Bloomer.

If you sign on with Fun Stampers Journey under me you are a Red Hot Stamper. I always wanted to be a part of a Red Hat Group so the Red Hot Stampers is as close as I get. haha

Masculine cards are always hard to come up with so I decided to do that for my swap. The other challenge was to use an ATS stamp for our swap. So I went with the Stay Wild ATS stamp.

The Love Stripes embossing folder also gives it a masculine feel; don’t you think?

The Ovals Dies were used to create the Black licorice oval and to die cut out my stamped image.

Black Licorice and Buttercream are great together.

The Happy Birthday Sentiment is from the Sentimental Prints stamp set.

Fun Stampers Journey Manager Swap!

Share Button

Wednesday January 10, 2018
Well I made it to Georgetown Texas last night! Bill and I are here for the Fun Stampers Journey Leadership Conference. It was so nice to escape the SNOW in Michigan and land in beautiful Texas. When we went out to eat at night it was so nice to walk into the restaurant without a coat!

Today is our Managers Escape; so looking forward to this event and find out where they are taking us! With any event we have swaps! At tonight’s swap we are having a business card swap and Thank You card.


This is my swap. The little diaper fold Spring Filled Prints holds a business card and a Ghirardelli Chocolate. The Thank You card is made using the Blooming Details Dies.


This card was inspired by a card from my upline Deb Valder. I love how simple it is yet so elegant.


The Diaper Fold technique is a great way to hold a business card, gift card and treat!

FSJ Coloring Stamped Images using PanPastels with Glenda Calkins

Share Button

Tuesday, January 9, 2018

Today’s technique in my Online Techniques Class is the Coloring Stamped Images with PanPastels.

This is a simple technique which is done just like it says; coloring in images using the PanPastels.

PanPastels are a very creamy chalk and a little goes a long way!
Fun Stampers Journey has 4 different color families of PanPastels:
Party Pop
– Mother Nature
– Rich Sorbet
– Confectionary Days

These 4 color families all come with the Journey Soft Tools

We also have the Brush Gold, Brush Silver and the Colorless Blender PanPastels.

The Colorless Blender PanPastel will act like an embossing buddy and remove that static so the embossing powder will only stick to the ink.

Plus we now have 4 NEW individual Colors as well:
Limeade Splash
– Raspberry Berry
– Lemongrass
– Hazelnut Blend

I chose my featured stamp set “Storybook Occasions” for today’s card. This is the perfect stamp set for this technique.

I paired my featured stamp set with the Spring Filled Prints found in the New Bloom This Way Mini as well.

Here’s your shopping list:

Ordering is easy just click on the products you wish to purchase and add them to your shopping cart. I appreciate you ordering with me!

Here is the video on this fun technique:
