FSJ Creating Backdrops with PanPastels and Glenda Calkins

Share Button

Thursday, January 11, 2018

Today’s technique in my Online Techniques Class is Creating Backdrops with PanPastels.

I love this technique and the results are just gorgeous! You can do this technique with any of our intricate dies.

Today I used the Decorative Hearts Dies. I’m thinking Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. You could easily use this card for a Wedding card as well.

The PanPastels I used were: Bubble Gum, Candy Apple and Sweet Berry.

You could easily add a sentiment to this card but by leaving it off I can use it for multiple occasions.

To finish it off I added the ribbon and the Silver Fashion drops.

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!

Bokeh Technique with Glenda Calkins

Share Button

Thursday, January 4, 2018

Today’s technique in my Online Techniques class is the Bokeh Technique. This technique is done with the PanPastels.

This is a fun technique that will give different results each and every time depending on how you use your stencil you create.

You will create a stencil using the Clear View sheets and the Journey Circles Dies. I do not recommend trying to punch holes in the Clear View sheet using the punches; trust me!

When I thought about doing the greens for my bokeh technique I was thinking the Turtley Awesome stamp set which would be a great stamp set to use with this background; but when I was done I immediately thought of my son who’s in the military and thought of Our Hero stamp set. A perfect match!

The PanPastel colors I used were the Whip Cream, Kiwi Slice and Limeade Splash. The Limeade Splash PanPastel is sold separately.

Liquid Color Watercolor Backgrounds with Glenda Calkins

Share Button

Wednesday, December 3, 2018

Well don’t I feel silly! I got my dates mixed up and thought today was Tuesday and it’s Wednesday and I’m a day late with my technique for my Techniques Class.

So today’s technique is the Liquid Color Watercolor Background technique; which should have been yesterday’s post but it’s today’s.

Maybe I was super excited to show you this month’s featured stamp set Storybook Occasions and the 4 fun fold cards (See grouping at the bottom of post).

On today’s card I used the Rich Coral, Limeade Splash, Fresh Forest and Bubble Gum Liquid Colors.

The Stamp Set is the Dear Rose Bundle.

The Embossing Folder I used is the FREE Brocade Imprints Embossing Folder (This is a Bloom Benefit option with a min. $100.00 order).

On my card sample I stamped the flower and leaves using Black Licorice ink and then quickly embossed with Black Embossing Powder on a Color Splash Sheet. I did this before doing the Liquid Color Watercolor Background.

On my sample in my technique book I did the technique first and stamped after and didn’t emboss. Either way works so the choice is yours.
