Fun Stampers Journey Punch System

I love this punch!  Its super sleek, lightweight and very easy to use.  The Punch handle and punches form part of the over 100 new products listed in Fun Stampers Journey's brand new Catalog!  I did this quick video tutorial on how to assemble your punches with your punch handle





Besides the darling punches, there are so many more reasons to love this tool.   At the top of my list is definitely ease of use!  For those folks that have problems gripping or squeezing I do believe you will find this tool very comfortable.  Another attractive feature is the compact design which allows for great storage options!   I love the different designs - top of my list was to get the Tag Time punch but others are so adorable too - the arrows, hearts, etc  Watch for projects featuring those soon. This card features the Tag Time Punch


All products are viewable on my Fun Stampers Journey Page.  There is a wonderful downloadable catalog too!  Here are the details for the Punch Handle and Punches

Punch Handle  (TO-0031)

Featuring Kazan's FSJ Stamp of the Week with a FREE card kit

I have an exciting opportunity for stampers!  Starting this week and every week that follows I am going to introduce to you my very own Fun Stampers Journey Stamp of the Week.  Each week I will showcase a stamp set from the Fun Stampers Journey Catalog and here's the fun part...If you purchase the stamp set I will send you a FREE card kit to make the featured card!!!!   That means that once you receive your stamp set you will have the supplies to make your first card.  So without further ado (insert Drum Roll) I present to you the first card for Kazan's FSJ Stamp of the Week


I simply LOVE this set called Nautical View!  It's a perfect combination of all things seaside and fits well for cards that require a masculine theme.  ( I don't know about you all but I sometimes struggle with those).  I created this card with Father's Day in mind which is coming up in June.  The sentiment for the card is Thank You so this would serve as a great card to give to ANY one in your life who loves the ocean.  You can use any sentiment to fit the recipient of your card - others in the set include: Happy Birthday and Happy Retirement.  I particularly like the Light House as a symbol for Father's Day because both my Dad and Husband serve as beacons of strength to our families.


Nautical View is available for purchase from Fun Stampers Journey.  It is on the Retirement list which means once it's gone -its gone!  The good news is that it is on SALE for $12.50 and only while supplies last.  You will also received a FREE pack of Up and Away Elements when you purchase ANY retirement product.  Oh my goodness how exciting is all of this!

Fun Stampers Journey May KOTM

I absolutely love receiving Fun Stampers Journey Kit of the Month.  Not only do I get a full stamp set, but all the paper and embellishments to make 4 beautiful cards.  Each kit comes with beautiful color photographs and step by step directions.  Every month I eagerly stalk the FSJ website to see the new KOTM image - and every single month I am even more excited to actually have the kit in my hands.  There is something magical about receiving something that is somewhat a surprise and then creating a card or crafty project to make it my own!



The beautiful Lily stamps are from the May Kit of the Month Set.   The mason jar is from a previous KOTM set.  I will create a page listing all the stamps sets from previous KOTM that are now available for sale.  

Following is an image of the 4 projects that the MAY kit includes


{What You Receive}

4 Precut Projects to assemble yourself
Embellishments
Exclusive Stamp Set (released to the public 3 months after)
Full Color Detailed Directions

You can order the May KOTM up until the very last day of May.  There is only a 6 month renewable commitment which I love because it gives me options without tying me down for an entire year!

The cost of each kit is $24.95 plus tax and shipping



Thank you so much for stopping by today.  If you have any questions about the products used today or about Fun Stampers Journey please email me at  clarksindenver@q.com. Have a wonderful Mother's Day weekend

Fun Stampers Journey Mother's Day Card

This is my latest Fun Stampers Journey Project.  I am usually not a "yellow" person - in fact I don't think I own one single yellow item in my closet but lately I have been drawn to this cheery color in my cards.  There is something quite uplifting about the color yellow right?  So here's my uplifting card to celebrate all Moms.  Cheers to all the joy and happiness that comes with this day and every other day that follows!


I used all Fun Stampers Journey products to put this baby together and the flowers I colored with Copic markers.  Here is a list of supplies.  If you would like to order any Fun Stampers Journey products simply select Catalog from the Link below

Enjoy the Journey

Being a Fun Stampers Journey coach is so much more than just creating and promoting their amazing  products.  I have had the opportunity to meet so many beautiful stampers along the way - sharing not only my journey but learning about theirs too.  This year the Fun Stampers Journey Convention is being held in Phoenix, Arizona.  I made this card for a special lady who is participating in a Secret Friend swap with me and a few others.  


According to a questionnaire that we all filled out, My Secret friends finds the Earth Element of Fire most comforting.  That was the basis for my color palette.  Since we are all in this journey together I chose this fitting sentiment for her too.  Details of the products I used can be found below.  If you would like order any products please click on the link below and click catalog.
