I believe in.. OAK TREE STAMPS DT POST


I created this card using 3 Oak Tree Stamps sets. I used Layered Lilacs for the background. I used the sentiments and a couple icons from Believe.  Chibi Girl & Accessories set was used for the head and face. I just used scraps from a previous card and just stamped a fun background, then splatted some FSJ silkes over top.  Used a leftover butterfly and cut it in half to give my fairy wings. The wings started out red, I e-brushed them with a metallic gold sharpie. I also e-brushed the flowers after I created them using random Prima flowers I was given.   I added everything using various adhesives to ensure everything stayed in place. I pulled out my white gel pen and jsut added a lot of fun white highlights to finish the card. I thought it came out fun and whimsical. I hope you like it!!!

Different But Best Friends Cards


Last night I stayed up late playing with my FSJ goodies. I have a few FSJ things but, I like to use what I already have to show that you can use the FSJ products with what you already have. I used all FSJ inks to stamp on scraps of various cardstocks I had(mostly recollections). The neutral toned card is all FSJ except the sequins and the background brown cardstock.  Most crafts think they have to use all the same product line and that is just not true. I am not very brand loyal but, I DO LOVE Fun Stampers Journey. I can't wait to create more cards with the Creature Comforts Bundle BD-0124


This set is on my FSJ website and includes:
DI-0191 Creature Comforts Die Set 
SS-0308 Creature Comforts Stamp Set 
For just $32.50

I created these super cute party items for a co-worker who loves cats. I cut everything out with my Cricut. I used the Country Life cartridge to make the banner and the Happy Purr-Day is an SVG I created. The papers are from an old DCWV paper pad called The Pets Stack.  The cat is from a Fun Stampers Journey set called FEED ME. The set is earned for FREE when you place a $50 order.  I really hope she loves the surprise on her locker!!!

Thank You Fairy Much Tag - Oak Tree Stamps DT



I created a fun tag using the Fairy Wishes stamp set. I loved playing with my distress inks, they have been neglected lately. I used 2 kraft circle tags and inked them up up with sponge daubers.  After I had all the colors blended I then splattered water on them. it give a fun splatter to the background. I then too some Silks and dripped a few drops on as well. Using a Vintage Photo distress ink I used some of the smaller stamps in the set to add some more interest to the background. I made sure everything was dry and stamped my sentiment and fairy over top in black ink.  Used a white gel pen to add a few pops of high light here and there! I attached a bow with a brad, so the tags will slide easily. 

Here Is What I Used: 

OAK Tree Stamps- Fairy Wishes 
2- 3 1/2 in. Kraft Circle Tags 
Distress Inks: 
Faded Jeans 
Abandoned Coral 
Fossilized Amber 
& Vintage Photo 
Sponge Daubers  
FSJ Silks in Silver Silk 
Momento- Tuxedo Black Ink 
Gelly Roll- White Gel Pen 
FSJ Journey Twine in Neutral
Brown brad (from my stash)
