Joy Clair - Lion & Lamb

Tuesday, March 21, 2017

Hello everyone!

It's Donna here, and today I am featuring the Joy Clair Color by Faith Bible Journaling stamp set Lion and Lamb set.  This set was released last March 2016.  Calling all the Bible Journaling folks out there, this is a wonderful set to have to use in your bible!  I decided to make a card with this set, because I am not a journaler (is that a word)!  If you would like to see what I designed last year with this set, you can click here.  Here is an image of the stamp set, lots of sentiments and images for your jounaling needs.

Here is how I put my card together:
  1. My card is an A2 card (4 1/4 x 5 1/2),
  2.  The top design paper measures 4 1/4 x 5 12,
  3. I used the SVG file that you get free when you purchase any of the Joy Clair stamps,
  4. I stamped the image with memento ink and colored him with copics - using the colors C1, 3, 5 and R81
  5. I stamped the sentiment with black memento,
  6. I die cut the two layering oval stitched shapes,
  7. I then sponged Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass distress in on the top oval layer,
  8. I then used foam dots to pop the lamb up to give the card some dimension.

A Blog Named Hero - Let's Party!

Monday, March 20, 2017

Hello everyone,

I am here again with A Blog Named Hero featuring Hero Arts products and Studio Katia.  Studio Katia is collaborating with A Blog Named Hero this month and she has sent some wonderful sequins which I have used on my project.  If you have not had a chance to join the challenge over at A Blog Named Hero, please come play along!  It's all about "blinging it up"....details are over at A Blog Named Hero and you can link your project here.

I am featuring the Birthday Lions by Studio Katia and the Purr Clear Stamp by Hero Arts.  I have a shaker card to share with you today.  My card is an A2 card, I created the shaker part of my card by cutting out the Studio Katia Stitched Creative Window, I then cut it out again with some fuseable clear sheet.  I then used my fuse tool and closed the sheet all the way around leaving the longer side open.  I then used the blue piece to close the center piece to make three pockets.  I then added the Studio Katia Crystal Rainbow Fusion sequins and Confetti Bundle Special.  I closed the side I left open with my fuse tool.  I then popped the Katia Stitched Creative Window on the card.

Next I stamped the lion from the Studio Katia Lion and the cute kitty from the Hero Arts Purr set and colored them with copics.  I die cut the party hats and balloons and added everything to my card.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts Birthday Animal Silhouette set.

Closer look at the cute little critters!

A View on the side to see how I added all the elements to my card.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my card. Thank you Studio Katia for collaborating with A Blog Named Hero!  I really enjoyed working with your products!  If you have not stopped over at A Blog Named Hero to see what the other Design Team members have created, please stop by.

Hello everyone,

I am here with Prickley Pear showcasing the newest release Irish Blessing 2 verse and the Shamrocks rubber stamp.  I used several different papers and then stamped off with the Shamrock stamp and then stamped the Irish Blessing on top.  I thought these stamps went perfect together.  Please stop by the blog and see what other projects that have been created.

Joy Clair - My Redeemer

Thursday, March 16, 2017

Hello everyone!

I am here with Joy Clair with the newly  released stamp set  Color By Faith line called "My Reedeemer".  For all you bible journaler's out there, this is a great set to have!  With Easter coming up this would also be a perfect set to make some Easter cards.  Please make sure you read this whole post there is a giveaway for this new release.

Here is my project today featuring the "My Reedeemer" stamp set. 

Here is how I put it together:

I cut my piece of canvas to size, I then took some Archival Ink (Cactus Flower) and rubbed it into the craft mat and added some alcohol and rubbed the canvas in the solution until I got the color I wanted.

I let my canvas dry, I cut a piece of heavy chipboard to size, after the canvas dried, I laid the chipboard on top of the canvas and wrapped it around.

Here is the what it looks like after I wrapped the canvas around the chipboard. I pivoted the corners so I would not be bulky.

I used my Misti to stamp my sentiments so that I could have a clean and crisp look.  I used Black Archival ink to do this.  I heat set the sentiment to make sure it was dry.

I used the SVGs for the redeemer set, I then stamped the images on chipboard and fuzzy cut them out, I glued the cut out pieces to the chipboard and added the images to my canvas piece.
