Fall Friends

Hello stamping friends! I am back. September was a total rush of family stuff, back to school, trips and more. Sadly,  it didn’t leave much room for stamping. I am happy to report that I am getting back to my craft table and begun creating again.

Today I would like to share with you the first card using a background made with my Journey Gel Press. This media product is a HUGE new favorite of mine. You can expect to see a lot of it in the coming months.

Other products used were the Color Burst Pencils and of course our Journey Platinum Machine. I love the different textures that the Gel Press Produced and how easy it was to use.

All about Fusion Inks!

Fun Stampers Journey Ink Pads 20% off this Month!

Many of you have asked, what is fusion ink?
It is a fusion between pigment and dye ink and creates the most amazing impression with your stamps.  It looks like a regular stamp pad, but the product is quite different.
Let’s talk ink in general…
Dye Inks are permanent and translucent and have a thin consistency like water so they tend to dry quickly. You can’t color in dye based stamped images with paint, markers, pens or other water-based mediums because the ink will run together. You can, however, use colored pencils. Many dye-based inks are acid-free, however the color fades over time, especially in sunlight. Dye inks have a felt-based stamp pad. Ink pads should be stored upside-down to keep the ink on the surface of the pad.
Pigment Inks are opaque and have a thicker, richer consistency than dye-based ink and take longer to dry. Pigment inks are usually brighter and more vibrant and are fade-resistant. They are perfect to use with heat embossing powders to create a glossy effect. Pigment inks have a foam-based stamp pad. Ink pads are usually very juicy so should be stored right side up so you don’t get an inky mess.
 With our True Color Fusion Inks you have the best of the two worlds. Our ink pads have the vibrant ink and archival features of pigment and the ease of use and fast drying characteristics of dye inks. True Color Fusion Inks are fade resistant and acid-free. This combination makes our ink pads the best on the market today. True Fusion Color Inks will become permanent when stamped on glass, fabric, wood, plastic, metal and clay when heat set.
Introducing True Color Fusion Ink
Care and Use of Fusion Ink
I’ve been using fusion ink pads on all projects posted to this blog since the end of May.  I could not be happier!  No sagging in the middle with larger stamps, no lines or inconsistencies with reinking, you do not have to store them upside down, they are really quite perfect and I know you will love them!

Adventure Awaits

Hello crafty friends. I am so excited to share a card with you today! It has been way too long since I’ve blogged. To be honest, I have been enjoying this summer with my family and both crafting and blogging have taken a bit of a back seat. As summer begins to wind down, I am ready to get back to crafting, creating and bringing paper to life.

Stunning background using Pan Pastels by Fun Stampers Journey. For more inkspiration visit www.jenguarino.com

The showcase of this card is the background, which was created using the Pan Pastels in the Party Pop palette. These pastels are unlike anything I’ve used before. Soft and creamy, bright and bold but easily blendable & have the ability to create custom colors. These are such an amazing product and will be featured as one of the techniques this month, at Technique Class. I would love to have you join me! The airplane is from the Begin Adventure stamp set and is finished off with some Journey Glaze. I think the glaze is my new favorite product. I am adding it to EH-vry-thing!!

In case you haven’t heard yet – Fusion Stamp Pad’s are on sale this month, so it’s the perfect time to stock up! What makes Fun Stampers Journey ink different? It’s a hybrid of pigment AND dye ink that produces crisp, clear images and works on a HUGE variety of surfaces and with many types of mixed media products. There is nothing else on the market like our exclusive Fusion Inks!

Thanks for stopping by today!
