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.

This was one of my cards I was thinking of doing for the swap. It didn’t make the cut. It was Okay and all I just liked yesterday’s Stay Wild card much better.

Isn’t it funny how you may LOVE a card and not so much another card; but someone else may love the card you didn’t like. I love how we are all different and have different taste and different styles.

I have learned a lot at this leadership conference, not only about how to run my stamping business but how to approach people differently. We are not all the same and we go about things differently. We all have to learn our strengths and weaknesses and learn how to appreciate them and grow and change some things.

One of the things I always tell people when I’m teaching a class is you may not like my style or my way of stamping; but I’m not here to teach you that. I’m here to teach you how to stamp and use the products. Once you know how to use the products and stamps take it and make it your own style.


This ATS stamp is one of the $75.00 Bloom Benefit stamps; meaning it is FREE with a min. $75.00 order.


I used the Bubble Wrap embossing folder on the Oatmeal Cookie background and then rubbed the Oatmeal Cookie ink pad over the top to give it some dimension and make it pop.

The Coffee Cup with colored using the Color Burst Pencils and then blending them with the Color Burst Blenders and Baby Oil.

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.

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.
