Back with Joy Clair

Friday, October 20, 2017

Hello everyone!

I am back again with Joy Clair!  I am showcasing today the Color by Faith - Bible Journaling collection "Faith Quotes".  This set has some amazing quotes that are perfect for bible journaling, but also for making a quick card.  My card is an A2 card, I die cut the top layer with a Rectangle Stitched die, I then used a few Circle Stitched die and cut them out randomly.  I then die cut some stitched circles from the Rinea paper foil and added them to the die cut circles on the card.  I stamped the sentiment from the Joy Clair Faith Quotes stamp set and die cut it out with a stitched circle and used foam tape to pop it up on my card.

My next card, I had so much fun creating!  The stamp set is another release from last month from Joy Clair called  "Out of this World".  It is a box card die that I used from Lawn Fawn.  I die cut three of the pieces and put the box together.  I used a sheet of paper measuring 5x8 and distressed the paper using Tim Holtz distressing inks.  I splattered some water, white and black distress paint and Sheer Shimmer Sparkle onto the distressed piece of paper so that it could look like the galaxy.  I then used the dies from the box card and die cut the sides out of the paper I distressed and adhered them to the box.  The top of the box where the scallops are, I made a interactive piece so Saturn can move around the card.  I colored all the elements using copics from the Joy Clair "Out of this World".  I used clear acetate to place the elements in the box card.

I am using the Hero Arts Winter Scene stamp and die set.  I stamped the jar then stamped the images inside the jar from the same set.  I then stamped the jar again on some silver card stock and fuzzy cut the lid and used foam tap to add it to the jar to give it dimension.  The background I used a Tim Holtz embossing folder Snowflake Speckles, then used foam tape to add the jar in the center of the card.  I then stamped the sentiment from the stamp set Snowflakes by Lia.  I finished the card off by adding some Hero Arts Champagne sequin Mix.

A Blog Named Hero and Lawn Fawn Critters

Monday, October 16, 2017



Hello everyone!

I am back again with A Blog Named Hero and Lawn Fawn!  I love making Halloween and Fall cards, so I am sharing a Halloween card with you today.  If you have not had a chance to join in on the challenge this month, please do....it's all about Critters.

I am using the Lawn Fawn dies and stamps trick or treat border, happy howloween, Spooktacuar, stitched hillside backdrop: portrait, and perfectly plaid chill petite paper pack.  The sentiment at the bottom is  Hero Arts Celebrate Everyday.

My card is an A2 card, I die cut the hillside backdrop with black card stock, I die cut the fence with white card stock and added it to the background and used the perfectly plaid paper pad paper for the background.  I colored all the images with copics and die cut them and added them to the card.  I finished the card off by adding the trick or treat border.


Closer look at the card:

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you have enjoyed seeing my card. Thank you  Lawn Fawn for collaborating with A Blog Named Hero! I really enjoyed working with your products!
