Last week I received my Fun Stampers Journey order and in that order was my new 8 1/2 x 11 FSJ Gel Press. Yes, Fun Stampers Journey has joined up with Gel Press to offer an exclusive to FSJ 8 1/2 x 11 Gel Press. It is so much fun! I love it!

This past Saturday I was demonstrating to a couple of my class attendees how you can create awesomely unique paper for card making. I played around with FSJ Limeade Splash and Pineapple Smoothie Acrylic paints along with the Starburst Lines stencil on the Gel Press. I made quite a few different designs with acrylic paint, splashes, and the Fusion ink pads. Once I had finished, I set them aside to use later.

That being said, I looked at the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge 301 and decided one of those designs would make a clean card. Here is the sketch:

For the designed piece on my card, I took the design I created with the FSJ Limeade Splash (JM-0101) and Pineapple Smoothie (JM-0023) acrylic paints. To create this design, I placed several small dots of each color onto the Gel Press (JM-0107) and using my brayer (TO-0087), I tapped across them lighting to create a solid layer, BUT not blended enough to loose each separate color. I placed my FSJ Starburst Stencil (JM-0007) onto the paint then placed a piece of 5 1/4″ x 4″ FSJ Whip Cream card stock (CS-0040) and rubbed my hand across the back making sure to press firmly down so the card stock would pick up the paint between the plastic of the stencil. I pulled it off and there you go. It was just that easy. You can then pull the stencil up and get another impression off of the Gel Press. I made some flowers from the FSJ Summer Pretties punch (TO-0007) using left over impressions of this design. To accent the flowers I placed FSJ Fashion Gold (AC-0292) embellishments in their centers. The sentiment is from FSJ Punny Punny stamp set (SS-0421). A thin strip of FSJ Whip Cream card stock is showing below the designed paper. All of this is adhered to FSJ Electric Lime card stock (CS-0123).

It seems like a long time since I have posted. I have been sick plus super busy. The last make-n-take we had at my house featured the card below.  It is using the new SU! Woodland Textured embossing folder. Here is the card:

SUO #130

This is a super simple card to make. I used a brayer to roll Crumb Cake onto the inside flaps of the Woodlands embossing folder. I then placed a piece of Very Vanilla card stock into the folder and ran it through my Big Shot. I cut a wreath out of SU! Color Me Autumn DSP. I cut out the leaves with a retired BigZ die (can’t remember the name) and ran them through various SU! embossing dies (it doesn’t matter which dies you use, just something to give the leaves texture). I printed out “hello” in a color close to Elegant Eggplant, which is the color of the card stock used to mat the embossed Very Vanilla.

Supplies: **Note: I added the current Leaflets Framelits and Acorn Builder below, which can be used to substitute for retired product I used on my card.
