Thanksgiving is over, and I’m on track this week to posting some card challenges. The first one of the week is Freshly Made Sketches #264.

I have the perfect stamp to make a super cute and simple card. It is Fun Stampers Journey (FSJ) ATS (Artist Trading Stamp) Frosty Fun and its coordinating die.  I stamped Frosty in FSJ Black Licorice ink onto Whipped Cream cardstock. I colored him with FSJ Color Burst pencils. Once I finished coloring him, I cut him out with his coordinating die. The circle is cut out with the FSJ pierced Circle Dies using FSJ cardstocks Pool Play and Whipped Cream. Frosty is attached using FSJ Foam Squares (medium). I accented the background with FSJ Silver Splash and added a sentiment in FSJ Candy Apple ink using the word “Joy” from the Holiday Script stamp set. Here is the main attraction:

 

All supplies used are from Fun Stampers Journey. If you would like to create this card for yourself, please feel free to check-out my FSJ website to place an on-line order (click here).

This past weekend my friends Cheyenne, Mary, Karen, and I attending the Stamp Scrap Art Tour Show’s Make-n-Take at the Gwinnett Infinite Energy Center. It’s like Scrapbook Expo, but different, and we had a great time. Every one of us won a door prize during the make-n-take. I can’t remember what Mary and Karen won, but Cheyenne won a stamp set from Darcie and I won something from the Fun Stampers Journey make-n-take table! I was thrilled. I chose a retired ATS (Artist Trading Stamp) called Feed Me. Here it is:

It reminded me of my friend, Kevin’s, cat named Catalina. Catalina can be quite the diva.

Saturday and Sunday were shopping days at the show. They had quite a few door prizes. Cheyenne was one of the first to win a door prize and she got $100.00 to spend in “show bucks.” Of course, her dear friend, that would be me, was right there with her helping to spend every last dollar of her prize. LOL  Here we are right after she got her show bucks:

I, also, helped her select various items from the Heartfelt Creations booth. I will be posting our creations we make sometime in the future from those purchases. The best part is she let me pick out a die that went with one of the free stamp sets I received this past July at the Scrapbook Expo. Yay, me! The Darcie booth had the most incredible stamps and shrinky dink supplies. That’s where the show bucks went. You will be seeing those creations soon.

Once we got home, I said let’s make something really quick and use my new Fun Stampers Journey Color Burst pencils. We decided on the cat, and we pulled together a card in about 40 minutes (that’s pretty quick for us). It turned out to be so cute! I can just see Catalina thinking/saying this to Kevin.

You do not need any gamsol or other medium to create a blended image with FSJ Color Burst Pencils. You only need blending stumps. I added a few rhinestones I purchased from Cre8tiveArtz at the Scrapbook Expo. I used a die we purchased from Pink and Main for the stamped image and the DSP mat.  Because we attended the make-n-take, we could purchase the die set (stitched rectangles with rounded corners) for $10; regular price during the show was $20. The die was a GREAT deal! Cheyenne purchased a scarecrow stamp set with coordinating die the next day. It is soooo cute. I will post our creation when we have time to make it.

Stamp – FSJ retired ATS Feed Me
