Friday, August 30, 2019

Hello everyone!

I am here with Joy Clair Stamps and we are celebrating their 5th Anniversary and NEW release.  You should be coming from Josefine Fouarge blog and your next stop will be the talented Tenia Nelson. There are lots of inspiration for the new release over on Joy Clair's blog, be sure to stop over there.  To celebrate Joy Clair's 5th Anniversary there will be a chance to win one of TWO $25.00 gift cards to spend at the Joy Clair online store.  All you have to do is comment on each blog that is listed below.  If you get lost, click here to the Joy Clair's blog to get the complete list for the blog hop.

My first card, I am using the NEWLY released "Shadow of the Mighty", which is part of the Color by Faith line of stamps.  If you love to bible journal this set would look beautiful on a bible page.  I love how this set is perfect for those who love to make cards.  The technique I used for the chair is mirror stamping, below is how I mirrored the beach chair.  The background I created using distress inks, the sun I used a sunburst stencil using distressed inks.

Closer look at my card.

To create the mirrored beach chairs, I began using a media mat with the Misti.  I layed the beach chair on the media mat.  To get a clear image I used Onyx Black Versafine ink, I stamped it twice.

I then laid a piece of white cardstock on the media mat, pressed softly to get a clear image.

The image  on the right is the mirrored image and I stamped the image again on the left.  I then used my scan and cut to cut the beach chairs and the umbrella. I colored them using the Leisure Arts double ended water-based markers.  I like these markers because they have brilliant colors.  I have the pack on 60.

Here is how I added the sun to my card base.

This is how I created the sand and water to the card base.

My last card I am using the Everyday Stamp set "Wish Big".  I die cut my top panel with a stitched die cut.  Before I took the panel out of the die, I used distress ink to create the background.  I then stamped the floral image and colored the flowers and butterfly with my Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend markers.  I then added the sentiment and finished the card off by adding some sequins.

Here is a closer look of the card.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have been inspired.  Please stop over to Joy Clair's blog to wish then a Happy Anniversary and see what the design team and guest designers have created.  Don't forget there are  TWO $25.00 gift cards to spend at the Joy Clair online store up for grabs.  All you have to do is comment on each blog post.
