Springtime Happiness with Unity Stamps!



Hi there everyone. I can't believe it's already April! It feels like I just put my Christmas Tree away! 
This month I've been asked to Guest Design for Unity Stamps. 
This is a Stamp from the January Kit of the Month. These Kits are so much fun and they have a TON of stamps and we are not talking about a little stamp set. Nope! These stamps are a all a good size stamp for card-making, mixed media and even for scrap-booking!

I really LOVE the simple look lately with cards. I still love layers but I think I'm going through a non-flower phase. :) 

I hope you will follow me throughout the month and see my Unity Projects!

Only one week left to order the March Kit!!


Hello Stampin' buddies!

There's only a week left to order your Fun Stampers Journey March Kit of the Month
This kit was so much fun to work with. This kit can be used for just about anything, Birthday for an adult, kid's pirate party, love, sympathy.. you name it. It's extremely versatile! 

Like all of the Fun Stampers Journey Kits you will receive an exclusive Stamp Kit, pre-cut and scored card kits with embellishments! Plus, you'll get instruction sheets which are printed on a glossy card stock. You could keep these in page protectors in an inspirational album for years to come!

Here's my take on creating cards using the March Kit. You know me, I always have to build those layers.. and challenging myself to create something using my own style. 




On this next card I frayed the ribbon a little and had placed it peeking out from behind some of the layers giving this card pops of orange. I also put Journey Glaze over the entire bottle.





I just LOVE all of the circle elements on this last card. It really came came together nicely. The stitching effect really is an eye catcher. Even though these kits already have the die cut outs and stitched markings on them these really are a must have for your wishlist! These circles have a die and a separate piercing die so you can do either cut or pierce or BOTH! 
I LOVE these Journey Circle Dies item #DI-0039. There's also Squares, Rectangles, Long Rectangles and Oval Dies with matching Piercing Dies!




Here's the 4 premade cards all completed that you could make with your kit, or you can re-create what I made or come up with something else that tickles your fancy!


You can subscribe to the Kit HERE!


Oh, and check out my video below on creating my FIRST card in this post.. I didn't pre-design before I recorded so you can see all of my ..how about here.. or here, or here... hmm here.. no never-mind not that. LOL! 
It's kind of entertaining! :)

Keep the Stars in your eyes..

Happy Monday All!

A couple weeks ago I shared some very exciting news with you all. There's a fantastic post up on Richard Garay's Blog so you can hear a little more about all of the designers. 

Today I have a fun card to show you. I used Fun Stampers Journey last month's Kit of the Month. I just love this little ballerina. The stamp set is called 'Twinkle Toes'. 


The stamped collage under the star is from 2 different Stamp sets, The dots, stripes, stars and spots are from the SS-0009 Banner Party Stamp Set. Then I used the ATC Stamp Set AT-0090 Honeycomb. I love the Honeycomb stamp!! I used My Fun Stampers Ink Pad IP-0029 Sweet Berry,



I added AC-0013 Journey Glaze  all over the entire star. 
I also added spots here and there on the collage. 
Then I sprinkled the Journey Dust over that. It gives such a beautiful, shiny, sparkle look.


I popped up my images and elements with some AC-0098 Journey Foam Squares.


 I colored the ballerina using my Copics.
Skin - E000, E00, E11, E13
Hair - N9, N7, N5, N3
Outfit - N0, N1. N3, tiny bit of N5


You know me, always looking for those extra little embellishments for different textures. I added some AC-0113 Journey Sequins Blue Skies and that darling little paperclip from
 the AC-0101 Fun Day Elements assorted Clips.


Well, I hope you enjoyed my card.
Please pop on over and see the Design Team Post over on Richard Garay's Blog. We are all just thrilled to the moon and back about this fantastic experience and we want to share it with you all!

Limor Webber Mixed Media Card!

Hello Everyone, Today I have a pretty simple card to show you. It's a mixed media type card. I really love the way it turned out. It was simple and yet so many different textures and elements. Really a fun card!


I love all of the height and dimension from the stickers and the flowers.. leaving a small shadow on the colorful splatter under them. 

If you ever want to add a little height and weight to your card all you need to do is glue a square of cardstock under the first layer. It adds dimension and gives your card sturdiness.  



Enjoy the video!

Fun Stampers Journey Make Amazing Design Team!




Hello Everyone! Today I'm sharing some wonderful news. If you haven't already seen on Facebook, anyways. I'm a Design Team Member for Richard Garay and Fun Stampers Journey.

Last week I was at the Journey Station doing some fun behind the scene stuff. It was so great to see where it all happens. I met Rhea Weigand she is so sweet and talented! Her and I went to eat with Richard and Gabby one day for lunch and after that I was so motivated to really give my 110% with this company! 

Not only am I a designer for this amazing company I'm also a Journey Coach. I seriously cannot believe how much this company has grown over the last 6 months. We have finally hit 500 coaches so the started kit has gone up to $199. Which is still an amazing deal considering all you get! 

Here's one of the cards I made when applying for the Design Team. I colored Twinkle Toes with my Copics. This adorable set was February's Kit of the Month. 

If you are interested in ordering or becoming a coach you can contact 
me at StampinMindy AT Yahoo.com I can have a catalog shipped out to you if you'd like to host a catalog party, too!

Have a great day everyone. Thank you for sharing this fun journey I'm on!

Valentine's Mixed Media Rose Card.


Hello there friends out in blogging land. Today I have a quick little mixed media card to show you. I had a lot of fun making this card. I love the bold colors and splatters and then all the surrounding white. I've really been obsessed with these clean and simple cards lately. Too bad I have bins and bins of flowers. Our styles changes so much over time, isn't that funny? 

I have used my Fun Stampers Journey ATC Rose stamp. You can watch me create and assemble this card over on my YouTube Channel or scroll down to watch it here on my blog.

Clean and Simple Cards -- Fun Stampers Journey!

I have made a few quick Fun Stampers Journey cards here and there over the last few months. I thought I'd just share a few of them in one post. I have really enjoyed coloring other things besides people when creating these cards. It really reminds me I don't have to spend hours and hours on a card. Even though I really love doing that, too. Sometimes, I just don't have that kind of time, you know? Plus, I've really been drawn to Clean and Simple Cards lately. 


This first one I made using the Gifted Wings Set, Item# SS-0040. I colored the image with my Copic Markers and then took my Journey Glaze item AD-0003 and covered the entire glass area of the jar with the glaze giving the jar a glossy "glass" look.

Here's another project I made I used my ATC Stamp Rose Garden AT-0025. I used the banner from my Pennant Banner Die Set DI-0004 for the scalloped border along the top of me mini bag. 
Again, I used my Copics to color the image. R32, R35, R37, R39 and N5. The backckground is BG10, BG0000, N0, N1, N3. The Grass and leaves are my favorite YG91, YG93, YG95, YG97 and some N5 for shadows. The ground is E30, E31, E33 and E0000.

Here's a fun little card I created using my Daisy Blooms DI-0010. I love the 3d look of this card. I also used my  Journey Glaze item AD-0003, Journey Sparkle Dust AC-0013 and the fabulous Bloom Tool AC- 0073.

There's a video below on this card, too.
