FSJ Catalog Launch Party

Hi everyone! We've been celebrating our new 2018-2018 Catalog with a fun Launch Party!! You can view the entire catalog online HERE.  All week there have been blog post inspiration and Instagram giveaways. Be sure to follow FSJ on Instagram for details on our new giveaway. You can win an FSJ gift card!

It was sooooo hard to chose what my very first card would be out of all the new amazing goodness! I ended up picking one of the new Blooms sets called Handpicked For You. I love everything about this set- the images, sentiments and the little tag! I colored it with the Color burst Pencils and framed it with a Kiwi Slice frame. To make the frame that thin, I die cut a rectangle and then used the outside/negative piece and trimmed a small frame from that (see below). Using this technique you can control the thickness of the frame.
The sentiments were heat embossed with white embossing powder. I love the way that makes it pop. The patterned paper is from the new RSVP Prints collection. Peeking out from underneath the paper panels is our new Rustic Rose satin ribbon. Oh yes, we launched NEW ribbons -5 of them!

Here's 2 easy steps how I made the frame using 1 rectangle die:
STEP 1: Die cut rectangle making sure to leave enough cardstock on all sides for your frame.
STEP 2: Make 4 cuts trimming the cardstock on all sides leaving your frame.

Thanks for stopping by! Here's a close up picture. I'm working on the pencil combinations for all 6 of our new colors. The combination I used to get the Rustic Rose color is: 29+5+9 in that order. Stay tuned for a blog post tutorial for all 6 and some tips.

All products used are Fun Stampers Journey. A reminder you need to order FSJ products through a Journey Coach. I am not a Coach. You can find a coach near you on the FSJ website in their Find A Coach tab.


  1. Beautiful card! Love your coloring. May I ask do you like coloring better with pencils or Copic markers?
    They both make such gorgeously colored images��
