Super excited to receive the notice from Pam Staples with Paper Craft Crew I had made the Top Picks for Challenge #230!!!

The card that made the top picks is the adorable Penguin card letting someone special know, “i love you”. Here is the card:

Click here for the post detailing how the card was created and what products were used. All the products used on this card are Fun Stampers Journey products. If you are interested in learning more about Fun Stampers Journey or purchasing products, please go to my website www.funstampersjourney.com/martymcgee (my Coach number is 818561).

I can’t say this enough, but I really, really love Fun Stampers Journey Bloom Box monthly card kit. I have made a variety of beautiful cards with the December kit. Of course, my group of Bloom Box Girls take the step-by-step instructions and make our own version of the card designs provided in the kit. The official promotion picture of the assembled cards from the December kit is below:

Each kit provides a unique technique, which is a great way to expand your creativity and apply this knowledge to other amazing creations you make.

Here is our first card we made with our December kit:

We decided to add another two branches to the bough, and a small pinecone to the this card. We used the Just Because ATS to add a sentiment.

Card #2:

We used our FSJ Color Burst Pencils to color the stamped wreath image. The only change is the sentiment of “Hello” from the FSJ Be Amazing stamp set.

Card #3:

Using vellum over the stamped card images adds a touch of elegance to an already beautiful card. We changed the sentiment and used the “So Cute” from the ATS So Cute stamp.

Card #4:

This is such a cute card. We stamped our wreath onto the base and stamped another image onto some FSJ Whip Cream cardstock. We fussy cut it out (the center and the outside), added some Journey Glaze to the berries and made a double bow. Oh yes, by the way, I love the wow factor a double bow gives a card creation.

Here are two more cards I made using this set. The wreath on the Oatmeal Cookie and Cranberry Bliss background was a Top 3 pick at Paper Craft Crew website. The other card I made using a SU! woodgrain background stamp and the Christmas sentiment from the FSJ Holiday Script. I did have to use my MISTI to stamp the sentiment about 5 to 6 times to get a good enough impression on the busy background.

         

It is not too late to sign-up for the December Bloom Box and  5 more months of Bloom Box card making kits.  You can go to my website and order the kit here.

Whoo hoo, I made top three on Paper Craft Crew Challenge #222. I am super excited about this pick because I used my Fun Stampers Journey, December Bloom Box stamp set Welcome Wreaths to make this card. I absolutely love this stamp set and the kit as well. Here is the winning card.

I wanted to keep everything about this card FSJ, and I did except for the sequins. I just haven’t acquired enough FSJ bling, . . . . . yet.  If you click the picture, you will be redirected to the original post.

I love everything about Fun Stampers Journey and I can’t wait to make more amazing cards using their products.
