Birthday cards

Tonight I want to share 2 of the birthday cards we will be making on Tuesday. The first one is having fun with the balloon die bloom benefit. We're also using our magical journey paper which is retiring at the end of this month.
I added our pretty silver sparkle tape and sparkle silk. The second card is using the multi step rose stamp. It's so pretty and allows you to build beautiful flowers. 
It's so fun to combine these stamps with the inks and build beautiful flowers. Hope you can join me. You can find these stamps on my website 
Happy Stampin

Create a dot background stamp

Today I want to share a card I made with our new background stamp Create-A-Dot. It's a fun stamp set that lets you fill in the dots you choose with 7 various designs from solid, dots, lines, and squiggles. You can use the individual stamps and any of your inks to create an endless combinations of background images. The card I made for today is a celebration card using purples, yellows, pinks and even a very light cool pool ink.
As you can see I even added some of our Candy dots to fill in a few spots. Finish the card off with some ribbon and cool pool silk and your ready to share. We will be making this card on Tuesday at Creative Haven in Chino. Signup for class can be found on Meetup under Nikki's Creative Nook. I hope to see you there. You can also find any of the supplies for this card on my website at

New website and Breakup Sale

Hi Everyone,
It's been a few days but I wanted to share that we have a new website.  You will see it has a new clean sleek look and feel.  There is a new Fun Stampers Journey Blog you can follow as well.  To view the new site go to

With the new website came our Break Up sale.  
Check out the complete list here  My suggestion is to go through your list and mark your catalog with an R next to all the items retiring.  Then you can prioritize your shopping.  If you want to just jump in you can go right to the website and click shop once you get into the shopping section select breakup sale.  The retiring items are 30% off but are only available why supplies last so shop away.  You will also find some clearance items on sale of past retired items that will be 50% off these are also while supplies last.

If you would like to book a retirement party let me know.  We can create some great things with these sets before they are gone forever.

RG Presents recap

Saturday we had our 2nd RG Presents this one shared the new Project Me collection coming out in our new main catalog July 1st.  All my guests this weekend were able to get a sneak peak at the new collection coming out and a chance to purchase the items over a month early.  I started with making some fun goody boxes for all my guests.
These are our advent boxes.  I stamped on them with our picture perfect stamp set in Lemon Drop, Cool Pool, Sweet Berry, and Black Licorice inks.  I then added a strip of our new Project Me paper pack.

One of the papers has these Girls I cut out and popped up on the front of the box.  

After I filled it up with candy I then stamped and die cut out one of the camera's and stapled a flag onto the back.  I then used a jumbo clothespin to hold the box closed and to hold the camera and flag onto the box.

 We had a group of 8 people crafting and having a good time watching wonderful demos and learning new techniques with the new product coming.  We also had the opportunity to get to purchase some of the wonderful new products that were demonstrated during the event.  Here is a picture of some of the great things we received in our package.  

 Along with the wonderful demos we also got to do 4 projects with all the goodies that came in our kit. The first card we we got to use one of the new clips and some of our Confectionary Blooms.  We stamped the camera from the ATS Share Stories and the the little girl and the Love from the new stamp set Too Cute! I colored her with our Color Burst pencils and blended them with our blenders and baby oil.
The second card we used a die cut from the Film Capture Die and then stamped the girls and placed then into each section of the die

The third card we made we die cut with the Film Frame that came with our Project me kit.  I just love this die because it is 2 pieces so it can be cut as shown below with the center left solid or you have a rectangle piece that you can also die cut out to make just a film strip edged frame. We also added a little of our new black deco strips

The last card was created with a new background die with these fun classic camera images.  I just love this new stamp and can't wait for it to get here.  We then used our ink pads direct to paper to make the colorful background.  The mini polaroid is a piece of the new 12 x 12 Project me paper pack. We layered that on our circle film die and stamped the saying on the bottom.  I also colored this one with the color burst pencils and a blender with baby oil.  

We had so much fun.  We gathered at my friends art studio Creative Haven in Chino.  We then had the show on the big screen and were able to craft at our tables.  We each had our own devices so we could engage in the chat during the show.  I provided lunch and snacks for everyone and we had fun during the make n take sessions making our projects together.  I would love to have you join me for the next one.  It will be on July 15th and we will be kicking off the new Journey Holiday mini catalog.  Early Bird Registration is $75.00 and will start May 22, 2017 and will go to June 19th. You won't want to miss this fun Christmas in July event.  More information will be coming soon. Let me know if you would like to join us for a fun day filled with crafting and be the first to get the new Holiday products.
