Color Crush with Fun Stampers Journey

Hi everyone!

Today I played with some of the great colors from Fun Stampers Journey.  They have 44 great colors that have inks, splashes, card stock all to match.  I used the Color Splashes today to create a great watercolor look.  I started with FSJ (Fun Stampers Journey) card stock instead of watercolor paper.
I put different color combinations together.  I love how they all turned out.
These are the color combinations I made.  I used Lavender, Lemon Grass and Blue Lagoon on 2 papers,  Lavender, Pineapple Smoothie, and Watermelon on 2, Sweet Berry, Pineapple Smoothie, and Blue Lagoon on 2.  The last combination I put together is Citrus Cooler, Pineapple Smoothie, and Sweet Berry. 

 This is a card I made using the Sweet Berry, Citrus Cooler, and Pineapple Smoothie combination.  Stamps and dies used are also from Fun Stampers Journey.

For this card, I used the combination of Lavender, Pineapple Smoothie, and Watermelon.  Stamps and dies used are from Fun Stampers Journey.  I love the circle stitch dies.

This is one of the Color Splashes.  They come in a spray bottle and are great fun to use.  It is almost like a thin spray ink.  I used a small box to spray my card stock in-it could get messy.  After spraying, it tried quickly and I was able to continue to make cards. 
I had a good time experimenting with the different color combinations.  I love trying all colors together.  If you are interested in checking out the splashes or other great colors we have, please go to or contact me by email, lindahpd@aol.(com)    Have a great weekend coming up and get crafty!!!!!

Craft Haul from the South of France

Hi, Everyone!

I have been to France and back already and I had an amazing time.  My youngest son was married in a little village in the south of France called Eze.  We stayed in a charming city called Mandelieu and that is where I found a great craft store and bought lots of treasures!!!  Here are some pictures:

The store in Mandelieu.

A book to teach cursive to my grand daughter.

These looked interesting so I thought I would try.  They are liquid pigment inks.

Five packs of decorative papers. They have a lot of sparkles on them.

Striped sequins, who knew?


Inside of an adult coloring book.

Cover of the coloring book. 

This last find is from the grocery store.  I love the small pack of BIC Watercolor Pencils!

I had a great time looking through the store!  I only had about an hour but I could have stayed all afternoon.  It was hard deciding what to buy but I only had one bag to bring them home in and that was a carry-on, so I could not make it too heavy.  I am very excited to try some of my new finds out in the next couple of weeks.  I will make sure I post some of my new projects.

I thought I would include a few pictures of the wedding since it was the reason I found myself in France.

 The church in Eze.

The happy married couple.

Thanks for checking out my blog!  I will be posting lots more projects and I also have some great new projects from Fun Stampers Journey.  Have a great day!!!  HAPPY FALL!!!
