All about the Ink

I’ve been getting a lot of questions lately about Fun Stampers Journey and their products.  So let me tell you about their Ink…  It’s AWESOME!

Fun Stampers Journey offers True Color Fusion ink pads created by fusing both pigment and dye.  No more confusion over which ink to use for which project because they are non-solvent and  work on everything! Yep, you heard that right… EVERYTHING… paper, fabric. wood, and acrylic. Just heat set to make them permanent on non-paper materials.

The dye gives you fast drying and the pigment – deep true color. They don’t fade and there’s no chalky residue.

Simply Genius!

And Colors – oh, Yeah!  My favorites this week are :

Pretty Pansy

Pretty Pansy

Pineapple Smoothie

With 48 colors to choose from, I bet you find more than one favorite!

Sea Side Treasures

So here it is, a card from the stamp set that got me hooked on Fun Stamper’s  Journey!  Sea Side Treasures!  I love, love, love the crisp clear images that their stamps produce. Top quality and at a great price, too!Sea Side Treasures

For this card I layered my base cardstock and then stamped the images on a white  cut it in half and then thirds. To make that part easy, I just folded it in half along the long edge and the cut each strip into 3 pieces (1.5″ each), put it together like a puzzle and just spread it out a bit so there’s a little less than 1/4″ in between the pieces. The I used adhesive foam squares to attach the “thank you” and the shells. Super quick, easy and fun.

Exciting News!

Journey Coach #813624

I have some super exciting news to share! 

I’m now a Journey Coach for Fun Stampers Journey !

Every once in a while life just clicks and you know it is the right opportunity. And so it was as I made the decision to leave Stampin’ Up!  and join Fun Stampers Journey. While I love the high quality products from both companies, FSJ products blew me away. The stamps are very high quality, produce clean crisp images and the price point is great. Their fusion inks – incredible! They are created by fusing both pigment and dye so you get the fast drying qualities of a dye base and the true deep color of pigment. Genius!  And the card stock – yep you guessed it – I love that too! With a wide variety of awesome colors ( and purple – not just one but several shades!) It’s 80#, fade resistant, archival quality – acid free & lignin free.

And the business model –  yep love that too. Quarterly minimums are only $150 and there’s no monthly fee for their website. So,  it makes it easy to get my business going and share the great opportunities.   I’m spoiled already!

 So pop on over and check out Fun Stampers Journey!   And keep a watch here  –  I can’t wait to share my kit with you -it arrives tomorrow and then  I’m madly creating new cards and samples to share with you here! Cupcake
