Feathers and Thank you cards

Today I want to share 2 cards we will be making in Tuesday. The first card is us by one of our steel rule dies to cut out the feathers. I then added texture to them with the Journey Glaze and sparkle cuts glitter.

I added some twine and sequin ribbon to the top. I then added a few splatters of silk to fill in a little of the background. 
The second card is using one of our bloom benefit stamps. I love the sets that have a solid image to add color spots on your background. With this set I used 2 colors and gave it a watercolor look without the mess. I then stamped the thank you in black on top.

I tied the sweet berry ribbon around the top layer for an additional pop of color and then added silks again. To get a little bit more texture on the card I scribble with the Journey glaze and added sparkle dust for some shine. I hope you can join us on Tuesday to make these plus a couple other cards at This N That in Chino Hills.

Distress inks class

Today I want to share the cards we will be making tomorrow night at This N That in Chino Hills.  We are going to be watercoloring 3 images from the Crazy Dogs stamp set. All 3 cards are Thank You cards but I will also bring some funny sayings that can be switched out and used on these cards.
 Each card we will use our distress ink markers or ink pads to make a color pallet and then use our watercolor brushes to paint each one.
 These are such fun stamps to use and can be made into anything you want them to.  For these cards I just used the dogs alone but you could use the accessory stamp set to dress any of these up.
 I hope you will be able to join me for this class.  Call the store to sign up.  You will need to bring a basic supply kit (adhesives, pop dots, watercolor brush and optional is your distress inks).  I will have the inks you can use but are welcome to bring your own if you don't want to share.
The class is $25.00 and you can sign up by calling (909) 464-1108 and add your name to the Distress inks class on Tuesday December 13th at 6:00 pm. I hope to see you there.
Happy Stamping
Nikki

December planner pages

Today I wanted to share my December pages for my planner.  I have really enjoyed decorating my planner this year and it has really helped keep me organized.  For December I went with a snowflake theme and used purple and blues.
As you can see I stamped some purple snowflakes on the background and then cut out a large snowflake using our steel rule die.  I added some candy dots around the snowflake and also some sequins.  I added some spatters of Cool Pool and silver along with some of the wood snowflakes.

How are you decorating your final month of the year.  I hope you having fun with your planners.  Don't forget we still have the planner buffet you can take advantage of to get a new planner for 2017.  Its a fun way to pick the different pieces and parts you want as well as a stamp set to use in your planner next year. You can find out all your options at funstampersjourney.com/Nikki

November planner

Happy Monday,
I hope you all have a very Happy Thanksgiving and we're able to spend some time with friends and family. I got a lot of crafting done over the long holiday weekend. I realized I never shared my November planner pages so I wanted to do that now.  I always love fall colors so I had fun mixing my pan pastels for a bright background and then stamped some leaves.

I cut a couple of feathers and took my stamp pads directly to the paper to add the texture to them. I then sponges the edges to help them pop off the page. For my calendar pages I lightly stamped leaves on then to help give the fall feeling to the pages. I hope your enjoying your planners.

 Have you started getting your new planners ready?  I have been working on them and can't wait to share. If you are looking for a new planner for 2017 we still have our planner buffet going. You can pic up a new planner inserts and fun stuff to go along with it on my website at funstampersjoureny.com/Nikki.  I will share my December pages next
