Another prior card

This card I think is my prettiest.  Let me know what you think, please.

I used Copics on the flower but put them away before I realized that I would be recreating the card on my blog.  I will be more careful with cards that I design going forward from today.  Once again, this is all Fun Stampers Journey Company items.  The background is called Script and in my opinion, very elegant.  The flower is from Summer Garden and the wording is from Greet and Shout.

AS I promised

 Here is a card that I did using the Pocket Card Die.  It is a delight to use.  I actually used it twice for this card. Once with the Whip Cream card stock then again with the Lavender Fusion card stock. Both the die and the card stock are from Fun Stampers Journey.

The final product will have a candy bar in the back pocket!  The stamp set shown is "Summer Garden".  The wording is from Greet & Shout stamp set - great sayings and I love the font!   I used Copics to color then I painted the leaves with Journey glaze and did some of the flower petals.  In the center petals, after applying the glaze, I added Journey Sparkle Dust.  I do have to note here that the quality of these products are by far top quality.  The ink is a hybrid ink which is a cross between dye and pigment ink. It is very juicy and dries as fast as dye ink.  All inks match the card stock and is bright and vibrant!

I'm Back

After a very long time, I am back stamping and going strong, I might add.  I see you are scratching your head wondering what happened.

When The Angel Company (TAC) folded I was crushed. It was another relationship that I lost and I just froze. My muze disappeared and I eventually gave the majority of my stamps and accessories away.  That was three years ago. 

Well, I am back and I think I am a new and approved version of my former self.  What happened?  Fun Stampers Journey happened.  It is a brand new company started by a man named Richard Garay.  Richard has had over 20 years experience in the stampinng world and has come out with a direct sales company that is making a darned good attempt fixing all that is wrong with these types of companies.  His demoers are called Journey Coaches. I am one.  The first 500 coaches who sign up will be considered founding coaches and will be offered exclusive items from time to time. As we speak, I believe we are up to 158.  Please check out the site at The 100 is my personal number.

The Company began officially on June 3, 2014.  Products are being introduced approximately every two weeks until the full rollout in September.  I am pretty sure I am going to the event that will introduce all of the products that will currently be available. In the meantime, we are selling a very limited amount of product.  I intend to post samples of what is available.  I am sure you will be as excited as I when you see what we have to offer.
