Today’s technique is the Umbrae Stamping with the PanPastels. This technique is quick and fun to do. You will get different results every time!

You will need PanPastels, a background stamp, clear pigment ink, and clear embossing powder.

This technique can be done with 2 colors or 3 colors of PanPastels.

I used the Pool Play from the Confectionary Days set and Beach Ball from the Party Pop set of PanPastels.

I also used the New Super Party ATS stamp to add a bit more of a sentiment to my card. I colored the word “Super” using the Beach Ball PanPastel and the little footie sponge.

I decided to add a little something so ran a strip of the Silver Sparkle Tape and then added the Silver Fashion Drops as well.

I just returned home late last night. After the conference I went to Livingston Texas to visit my friend France AKA Frenchie and her husband Brett. My husband and I were hoping to spend some time in a warmer climate but no such luck. I can’t believe how cold it was. My husband ended up getting sick and then I got sick. It was so cold that France’s water pipe broke and not just her’s but the whole town; so they didn’t have any water the last day and when I got back to Michigan at 11:30PM they still hadn’t gotten water. I feel bad we brought cold weather, got a bad cold, and they had broken water pipes. Hmmm seems we brought the Michigan cold weather with us; they’ll probably never invite us back!

BDay Wall, PanPastels, glendasblog, Fun Stampers Journey

Today’s technique in my Online Techniques Class is the Poppin’ Pastels technique.

This is an old technique but so fun to watch the magic appear.

You will need a Clear Pigment ink pad to do this technique.

You also need the PanPastels to do this technique. You can purchase the PanPastels in 4 different color families: Party Pop, Confectionary Days, Mother Nature, Rich Sorbet. Each color family comes with the sponges needed to do the different techniques.

We also sell 4 different colors individually to add to your collections.

This technique can be done with a solid image stamp or like I used today a Background stamp. The background stamp I used on today’s card is the BDay Wall stamp.

Blooming Details Die

This is the second card everyone will create in the Library class I’m teaching at the end of this month. This is another quick and easy card. You may notice it is the same as the Swap card I created for the Managers Swap. The only difference is I changed up the colors.

The die used for this card is the Blooming Details die.

You can easily use any sentiment stamp set to create this card. This card can be used for multiple occasions. It makes a great Birthday Card, Wedding Card, Thinking of You card, Sympathy, Get Well. So nice just change your sentiment for what you need.

FSJ PanPastels & Stencils with Glenda Calkins

Storybook Occasions, PanPastels, Fun Stampers Journey, glendasblog

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

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.
