This is from the Grown Up Stuff stamp set. It is part of the Graduation section in the new Spring Into Summer Mini.

I really didn’t look at this stamp set as a Graduation set as it has other meanings to me.

This set is an ATS (Artisan Trading Stamp)stamp set. It has 2 sentiments. “Look at you doin’ grown-up things & Stuff and “You’re Kind of a Big Deal”.

Both these sentiments has different meanings to me.

The one on today’s card is for a friend of ours. Whenever we go away with them he mentions to us how He’s kind of a Big Deal. It’s an inside joke and we always laugh about it and make jokes about it. When I saw this sentiment in this new Spring Into Summer mini I knew I was going to be making him a card with it!

I quickly whipped out this card using the Mystic Romance “masculine” looking prints.

I mailed it out right away with a little note inside saying; When I saw this stamp set I knew I had to make you a card with it; because Ya Know, “You’re Kind of a Big Deal!”

He texted me when he got the card and we laughed about it.

It’s fun to see how a fun simple card can brighten someone’s day; give it a try!

The other sentiment in the set reminds me of my friends daughter; she always says I don’t want to adult; hahaha perfect!

Fun Stampers Journey Hit the Road with Glenda Calkins

Share Button

Wednesday, September 6, 2017

This is another sample technique that we’ll be doing in my Techniques Class. It is a Polish Stone technique using the Liquid Color and Silver Silk.

You can create a lot of fun different backgrounds just by changing up the Colors you use. All so pretty and full of Sparkle and a marble effect.

The Catalina Splash mixed with the Silver Silk I thought made a nice background for the Hit The Road stamp set.

I have a new Online Techniques Class beginning next Tuesday!

Fun Stampers Journey has so many different mixed media products to work with that I have a whole list of techniques that you can do with these products. This fun class will teach you how to use all the different Fun Stampers Journey Media Products like: Modeling Paste, Gel Press, Watercolor Pencils, Colored Pencils, PanPastels, Silks, Color Splashes, Embossing Folders, True Color Fusion Ink Pads, etc.

When you have completed the class you will have 50 different techniques in your technique book.

The instructions are written at the top of the page and at the bottom you will attach your finished sample.

If you would like to sign up for this class email me and I’ll send you the PayPal invoice for $32.00.

I will send you the Unlock Code for the PDF file of techniques along with instructions on how the class will be done.

The Videos will begin Tuesday, September 12 and I’ll post 2 videos a week via YouTube every Tuesday and Thursday. If you subscribe to my YouTube Channel you will get an email each time I upload a new technique video. You can do the techniques as I do them of do them at your own pace.

This is an awesome tool to keep in your stamp room. Each section in the notebook will feature a particular Fun Stampers Journey Product.

So if you are looking for different ways to use say the Silks when you flip to the Silks tab you will find different ways to use the silks right at your fingertips with written instructions for each technique and your sample you created using that technique below the instructions.

Isn’t that Awesome? Love it!

Another Mystic Romance & Dude Ranch Card with Glenda Calkins

Share Button

Saturday, July 22, 2017

This is another Mystic Romance Print. When I saw the stars on this print I knew I wanted to use my New Dude Ranch Bundle.

I stamped the saddle image on Oatmeal Cookie and then colored it with the Journey Color Burst Pencils. I then used the Color Burst Blenders and Baby Oil to smooth out the colors.

I also used the Gold Silk by splattering it on but also to Paint in center areas on the saddle. I put some Silk on a clear block and then used a paint brush to paint the areas I wanted and used the end of the brush to create my little circles of gold on the saddle.

I did the same technique on the star image.

The New Gold Fashion Gold dots went perfect for the star center and at the rope knot.

I matted my stamped image onto Brushed Gold card stock.

Here is your shopping list:

Click on the supplies you need and add them to your cart.
