Joy Clair - Mardi Gras

Wednesday, February 15, 2017

Hello everyone!
I am here with Joy Clair and we are celebrating Mardi Gras!  To see what the design team has created please be sure to stop over at Joy Clair to see their creations!  I am using the stamp set called Mardi Gras.  This stamp set is a great set to have. I love all the mask that are in the set. There are three mask and a lot of other sentiments and elements you could use.  I choose to use two of the mask in the set for my card.  The sentiment is from the Joy Clair Everyday Sentiments.

Here is how I put my card together:

1.  I used my embossing buddy so when I stamped and embossed my background I would get a clean look. 

2.  I used my Silhouette to cut the SVG file for my masks that I wanted to use on my card.  Did you know with every stamp set you purchase from Joy Clair you get the SVG file free?  I then used my Misti and trimmed down the piece of paper that was cut with my Silhouette, I took a piece of post-it note and laid the cut file on top.  I centered the stamp over the negative cut and stamped it.  If the stamp was not centered you can always move the paper around. 

Once I got the stamp where I wanted it, I stamped the image. 

I placed the positive cut into the negative template, and re-stamped the stamped image.  Whalla, I have a perfect stamped image!  You can repeat stamping as many of these images as you want.  I like to have a few on hand just incase I wanted to use them on another project.  You can also keep the negative piece of paper if you want.

    1. Thank you Claire! I don't always think my embossing is the best, but I do use the embossing buddy.
