Meet Frank

Happy Monday crafters! I have a super fun treat bag for you today, in honor of Halloween.

Isn’t he just adorable. His head is a spring treat bag. His hair is 3 layers of Black Licorice card stock that has been embossed with the Beach Towel folder and highlighted with a white gel pen. The layers of hair are glued together and then glued to the very top edge of the bag and folded over. Eyes are punched and highlighted. His mouth is thin scraps in the shape of your choice. His scars are hand drawn and his eyes even have a little bloodshot in them.  This is filled with a treat for the host of the party my kids’ are attending on Tuesday.

November Coach Collective is coming! Be sure to come back on Nov. 1st to get your copy!

Introducing Fun Stampers Journey coach #7519!

In case you missed my Facebook announcement last night I have taken the next step in my creative journey and am now a Fun Stampers Journey Coach!

I am very excited to partner with FSJ and to share their amazing products with you all! There are so things to share with you that we have never played with before!

Let me tell you about my favorites!

True Color Fusion Ink Pads

Yes, I really am excited about an ink pad!  Not all ink pads are created equal.  If you are a stamper you know that there are dye based pads and pigment based pads.  Well, these True Color Fusion pads are a Hybrid pad, a blend of both dye and pigment!  You get the crisp rich color of pigment ink but it dries with the speed of dye ink!  No bleeding, waterproof, great on all surfaces and every color has matching card stock.  AND, there are 50 colors to choose from. I cannot wait to get them!

PanPastels

Fun Stampers Journey is excited to partner with PanPastels. We are the first Direct Sales crafting company to offer a crafting collaboration such as this. PanPastels are an artist quality soft pastel that comes in a uniquely designed pan tray. PanPastels
are a dry color application that applies like a fluid paint. Each color pan offers a concentrated pigment color that stays true to color even when exposed to light and are fully erasable. These unique qualities offer countless color palette combinations when mixed together. The Fun Stampers Journey PanPastels are individually packaged in four color family combinations.
Each color combination comes ready to use with its own Sofft Tools. We offer 4 color pallets in addition to 3 individual add-ons of gold, silver and the colorless blender.

Color Splash Watercolor pencils

• Uses Journey Blending Brushes and our
paint brushes (round, angled and
square)
• Water based
• 48 colors to mix and match to our
Journey Color families (color
chart included)
• Easy to use and add WOW factor
• Use clear acrylic block as a palette
• Works best with Color Splash Sheets
• Saturate paper for a more watercolor look
before adding color

Color Burst Color Pencils

• Oil base artist quality pencils
• High quality pigments
• 48 colors to mix and match
to our Journey Color families

Of course, I cannot tell you about every product I love in just one post so I hope you will join me again to learn more about the stamps, dies and other tools I am excited about. I will also have projects to share with you very soon.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to subscribe so that you never miss another post!

Review – Fun Stampers Journey

Hello everyone! Today I want to share with you my thoughts and a few projects I have made with products from Fun Stampers Journey.

This company is very new to me, but not new to the paper crafting world. They began almost 4 years ago and are based out of Phoenix Arizona. Started by Richard and Gabby Garay, FSJ has a complete line of products for your paper crafting needs.

I ordered a few products to try out and see what I thought.

Stamps are made in the USA of high quality red rubber, deeply etched to stamp a clear image every time. Each is mounted on cling foam that has the image laser printed and they stick to the clear blocks all the time! No sticker means no stamps falling off! I did a test and tried to shake the stamp off as hard as I possibly could and it never came off. Impressive!

 FSJ offers an ink that is amazing. It is called True Color Fusion Ink. True Color Fusion pads are a Hybrid pad, a blend of both dye and pigment!  You get the crisp rich color of pigment ink but it dries with the speed of dye ink!  No bleeding, waterproof, great on all surfaces and every color has matching card stock.  AND, there are 50 colors to choose from, so you have a huge selection to choose from. Another fun ink product that I loved right away are the Silks. Journey Silks provide a metallic shimmer effect in a concentrated form. Use to dab, flick, and drop color directly onto your projects, or apply with one of our artist brushes for more control.

Now for a few of the projects I have made. These photos are raw and some projects are incomplete since I just wanted to get a feel for what I had ordered.

This card was made using the Sweet You stamp set. I stamped the image in some black Momento ink that I had on hand and colored using my new Ohuhu alcohol markers.

This was another image from the Sweet You set, this time stamped on Daffodil Delight card stock using FSJ’s Whip Cream Ink. I am very impressed with how crisp the lines are even with a craft ink pad. It took only seconds to dry and did not smear at all when I was coloring with watercolor pencils.

Lastly I painted the Gold Silk onto the flower from the ATS set Lovely Day and then stamped onto my card stock. My coloring job wasn’t the greatest but I love the effect of using the silks as the ink to stamp with.

Over all I am very impressed with the quality of the products that FSJ offers. Their catalog is extensive at 318 pages as well as offering seasonal catalogs, a monthly subscription card kit and 3 starter kits options to choose from! These are all amazing deals and I will be sharing more about those later this week.

I would love to hear your thoughts and I am here to answer any questions you have. It’s been a journey already since I decided to make a change of direction with my crafting and I am excited to have you along!
