Media Mix Sale

Hello Crafters, I'm back now from our family vacation to Alaska. Our daughter and son in law took us with their family to celebrate our 50th anniversary and we had a blast but now I'm back home.

 Tomorrow, September 1-30,2017 we are having a mixed media sale on Fun Stampers Journey web site. You may find all of the products listed on my site. Our brand new gel press is there also for 20% off and if you want to have fun with something you will want to get one of these. I have already done 4 videos on it and will do more next week. I'm have a ball  using mine. You can use our acrylic paint, liquid colors, ink pads, and re-inkers on it. So do go and have a look at it.

Enjoy! Let me know what your favorite color combinations to work with happen to be in paper crafting.
Have a great day!

Marbling Leaf Card

A fun card to make using the marbling technique which I showed a couple of weeks ago. Today I am taking the marbling technique background and using it for my background along with a new stamp and die set that may now be found in our Journey Holiday Mini catalog on my web site. It is "Hello Fall"Stamp Set SS-0450, Die DI-0311, or save and get the bundle BD-0299 which includes both the die and stamp set. I then took our new create a pad ink pad and made my own color combination using our reinkers. I used Pumpkin Bread RI-0056, Cranberry Bliss RI-0048, Tangerine Fusion RI-0038, Summer Days RI-0042, and Kiwi Slice RI-0020 putting each color on one of the pads and leaving it set over night to soak in well. Then taking my stamp on my clear block I inked it up moving it very slowly just a little so as not have a line in between each color except for the vein lines. Die cutting them out and popping them up where I wanted them on my background and then adding a little Pumpkin Patch Bow AC-0332 along with sparkle silk to my leaves IP-0126 our sparkle silk is a must have for your projects.I have put the picture besides the video on how I made this card.  Any questions just email me and I will get with you but please tell me that you have a question so I open the email as I will be away from home the next couple of weeks.
