I am back to cold and snowy Ohio.....as soon as I got home from the airport I warmed up with a yummy cup of hot coca! One of the many things I love about Fun Stampers Journey is the generosity they show. This card was done with all sorts of FREE items!!! All year, FSJ offers a FREE Bloom Benefit for every $50 spent. There are choices in our annual catalog as well as choices in each mini catalog that comes out. The cup of hot cocoa stamp, die to cut it out and wooden snowflake embellishment were all free Bloom Benefits! This card uses one of my favorite color combinations - cool pool, whip cream and dark roast. The base of the card is cool pool card stock layered with dark roast card stock. I stamped a piece of whip cream card stock with the Striped Love background stamp with whip cream ink - I love the white on white effect it gives. I used the border basics die and my Journey Platinum machine to cut the scalloped border out of cool pool card stock. I stamped my Christmas Mug stamp in dark roast ink on a piece of whip cream card stock and colored it using my Journey Color Splash pencils and my blending brush. Then, I cut the mug out using my Christmas Mug die and Journey Platinum machine. I adhered the wooden snowflake to embellish my mug and popped the whole thing up using a journey foam square.
Until the end of the year FSJ is offering 15% off on planner bundles. You can use planners in a variety of ways - to organize yourself, scrapbook a year in your life or your child's life or just use it as a creative outlet to decorate with stamps, clips and embellishments.
I have been stamping for 14 years and am thrilled to be one of the first Fun Stampers Journey Coaches in Ohio. It was my honor to serve on the 2016-2017 Leadership Team for Fun Stamper's Journey.
