Lil Monster

Hi! I have another card to share today. Before we know it Halloween will be here, and I have lots of little ones (and not so little ones) that love their treats.


Isn't this little monster adorable? So cute! The stamp is from Fun Stampers Journey, as are all the products I've used on this card. You can find them all on my website www.funstampersjourney.com/pamnutting.

The stamp is an ATS called Lil Monster and can be purchased with a matching die. I used our fabulous Black Licorice True Color Fusion ink to add my monster to Whip Cream cardstock. The piece was die cut with Journey Rectangles dies, which can be used alone or combined with the piercing die. 

To color my lil monster I used Deep Lilac True Color Fusion Re-Inker added with our Fusion Blender. I matted the whip cream panel with Black Licorice cardstock and then added some pieces of our fun black Deco Strips to the top and side for additional interest. The panel was popped up with  Journey Foam Squares onto Deep Lilac cardstock and then adhered to a whip cream card base. 

I covered a small piece of black licorice cardstock with Licorice Sparkle Tape and die cut a bat from the Journey Blooms Holiday Die Set. I love that sparkly bat! Of course, no monster is complete without a googly eye! 

I'm adding this card to the current Color Throwdown challenge. This week's colors are black, white and purple - such fun Halloween colors! Please go check out the other entries. There are some great cards there!


I hope you liked my lil monster card as much as I liked making it. Thanks for visiting and have a great week! Enjoy!

Rock On!

Hello. Hope everyone is doing well. I'm certainly enjoying the warmer than normal  temperatures here in Central New York. I hope we don't pay for it this winter, though.

Once again, I find myself needing a bunch of birthday cards. Today's card was a quick one that can be easily mass-produced and is great for a teenager or anyone young at heart.



All of the products I used are available on my website at www.funstampersjourney.com/pamnutting. Go take a look around!  

First I used Beach Ball ink to stamp parts of the Ink Splat ATS onto Whip Cream cardstock. I love that Ink Splat ATS! It makes great backgrounds.  Then I stamped the Rock On ATS with Black Licorice ink over my ink splat background piece. 

The Rock On sentiment is included in the ATS. After stamping it on a scrap of the ink splattered paper, it was die cut with a Journey Circles die  and popped up with Journey Foam Squares. The happy birthday sentiment I used is from the Cake Time stamp set.

I matted the stamped panel onto a piece of Beach Ball cardstock  and then adhered it to a whip cream card base. 

I'm adding this card to the current challenge at Seize the Birthday where this time around the challenge is Anything Goes!


Wishing you all a wonderful weekend! Enjoy!

Happy October!

Can you believe it's October already? Time is whisking by. I finally have a minute to post a card I made yesterday with some of the background papers I made for our card class last month. Everyone had a blast using the new Fun Stampers Journey gel press and some of our acrylic paints to make beautiful backgrounds.



To make my  lovely background I chose to add 3 acrylic paints; Lemon Drop, Citrus Cooler and Candy Apple Red to my Whip Cream card stock. Using my brayer, I blended the 3 colors together to get the lovely background. I then stamped a leaf background stamp in Pomegranate Splash on the background. Love at first sight!

My smaller leaves were stamped on another background and fussy cut. The bloom cluster was die cut from gold mirror paper. To assemble the pieces, I first added a triple bow made from black twine and then used foam squares to arrange the other elements. I layered the background onto Black Licorice card stock and then adhered that to a Pomegranate Splash card base.

I love my gel press! It is so addicting and fun to play with. There is no end to what you can use to create beautiful papers with it.

These are the products I used in today's card:
   Tools - Journey Gel Press & brayer
   Ink - Pomegranate Red
   Die - Bloom Cluster
   Accesories - Black Licorice Journey Twine

You can find all of these supplies on my website at www.funstampersjourney.com/pamnutting.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed seeing today's card and are having a beautiful fall day. Enjoy!

Happy Anniversary

Hello, everyone! Today I'm sharing an anniversary card that I made with one of my favorite Fun Stampers Journey layering stamp sets, Summer Rose. I love layering stamps and this one is so easy!


There are 3 layers for the roses in this set. I used Bubble Gum True Color Fusion ink for the bottom layer and Candy Apple True Color Fusion ink for the detail layers on my Whip Cream cardstock base. I love the depth that these colors create!

For the leaves, I used Limeade Splash True Color Fusion ink for the lighter bottom layer and Fresh Forest True Color Fusion ink for the detail stamps. I splattered Bubble Gum Silk onto the panel for some added interest and shine.

The card base was adhered to a layer of Black Licorice cardstock. I wrapped some Black Licorice Journey Twine tied into a bow around the base. Finally, the panel was adhered to a Candy Apple cardstock base. The sentiment is from the Bird Melody stamp set. The fonts used for the sentiments in this stamp set are beautiful!

I hope you've enjoyed seeing my card for today. Remember you can purchase any of these supplies from my online store at www.funstampersjourney.com/pamnutting.

Party Animals Birthday

Hi! I can't believe that it's September already and that I haven't shared a card in so long. What a busy summer I've had and I hope things slow down once the school year starts. Especially since it's my second year of not having to go back myself!

My great nephew turned 2 over the weekend and I used the fun Party Animals stamp set from Fun Stampers Journey to make his card.


This set has such adorable animals and cute sentiments. I kept the card simple by adding leftover strips of  Hazelnut Blend and Tangerine Fusion card stock to a Whip Cream card base. The sentiments were added with Hazelnut Blend True Color Fusion Ink. My cute  lion was stamped, colored with Journey Color Burst pencils, fussy cut and popped up onto the card base. Fast, easy and a great way to use up scraps!

I'm playing at the current challenge at Pixie's Snippets Playground. Love how many snippets I was able to use to make this cute card.


I hope everyone has an amazing week! Enjoy!

LIM & AAA Collaboration!

Hello! How cool is this? Less is More and AAA Cards are having a collaboration challenge! This 2 week challenge is to make a CAS 1 layer card. The catch - use a colored card base! Here's what I came up with.


I chose  Fun Stampers Journey River Stone cardstock for my card. The World Map background stamp was inked in Lovely Blue True Color Fusion Ink to add the lightest hint of color to my background. I then added the Begin Adventure ATS in Black Licorice True Color Fusion ink. The sentiment is from the same ATS. What could be more appropriate than an airplane and that sentiment on that card?

All of the supplies I've used can be found on my website www.funstampersjourney.com/pamnutting. I so hope you'll go look around and see all of the fabulous products Fun Stampers Journey has to offer. You'll love them!

I'm adding my card to both of the challenges. Hopefully, my card base is still considered CAS white space, even with the hint of color I've added.


Thanks for visiting and have a lovely day! Enjoy!

Grab Your Sunglasses!

Quick! You may want to grab your sunglasses before you look at my card today!




Pretty bright, don't you think? These fabulous colors are included in the Be Amazing Collection at Fun Stampers Journey. I love these bright, neon colors!

To begin my card a die cut Black Licorice cardstock with the the stunning Geo Burst die set. I love how easily this intricate die cuts in my Amaze die cutting machine. If any of the pieces don't pop out, you can grab the must have Bloom Tool to help pop them out. 

I then added the  1 1/2" Circle Punch Cartridge to the Punch Handle and used it to punch 5 of the colors. The colored circles were adhered to the back of the black licorice die cut panel with Journey Craft Glue. Once the glue was dry, I trimmed the overhanging circles with the fabulous Grand Pro 9" Shears. Next I added the panel to my card base made from the 6th color in the collection, Outrageous Pink. Isn't it fun?

To embellish my card I used Turbo Teal Silk to color my Pearls, and adhered one to the center of each burst, Finally I added Amazing Stripes ribbon tied into a bow at the top of my card.

Aren't those bold, beautiful colors stunning with that black panel? I'm adding this card over at Pixie's Snippets Playground as I used scraps to punch all the circles. You should head over and see who else is playing in the Playground this week. Such beautiful entries!


I hope you enjoyed my card as much as I enjoyed making it. You can find all the supplies by clicking the links that will take you to my online store at www.funstampersjourney.com/pamnutting.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I always love hearing from you. Have a great weekend! Enjoy!
