Wish Big with Joy Clair

Hello friends!


I have a quick new card to share with you for Joy Clair stamps! I am using the beautiful NEW ARRIVAL stamp set called "Wish Big" on this card.  Aren't the images and sentiments just so darn pretty?

Wish Big | Clear Stamps

I was inspired to use a black & pink palette for this card, and here is what I created:


 


It's hard to see, but I sprayed the final card front with some really pretty shimmer spray to make it sparkly! It's a really iridescent shine - I love it!  I embossed the flower images too.

I really love how pretty this card turned out! I hope you like it too. Thank you for supporting small businesses like Joy Clair Stamps!!

See you again next time!

Creative Knockouts Challenge #319

Hello crafty friends!

It's time for a new challenge over at Creative Knockouts Challenge #319! 

Our theme this week is "Fall" and our sponsor is the super cute "Sweet'N Sassy Stamps". 

I chose to work with a stamp set called "Fall Arrangement".




Here is what I created:



I colored the image using a combo of Nuvo Marker Pens and ShinHan TwinTouch Markers.  A quick wrap of twin and a simple sentiment was all this image needed. I hope you like it!



I hope to see you at the challenge! Good luck!

Until next time,

Jess

World Cardmaking Day with Joy Clair - Outside the Box

Hello friends!  I'm back with CHALLENGE #3!



Click HERE to find all the information about Challenge #3. For this challenge, we are thinking OUTSIDE the box with our stamps!  That's right - open your window wide and create! SOOO - I set about create a vinyl covered altered notebook using the Mermaid at Heart stamp set!

I started by watercoloring the vinyl after it was adhered to my notebook and lightly sealed with a spray sealant. I added some super thick emobssing powders for dimention and texture.





There mermaid tail was stamped twice - once with ink and once with Versamark so I could emboss with a glitter embossing powder.  I stamped the sentiment onto the vinyl with Versamark and embossed with Gold Detail EP.  I repeated the same process on a piece of paper and fussy cut to fit on the original stamped image.





  

On the inside, I just added some simple stamping and started writing!  Both inside covers were covered with some mermaid patterned paper as well.

Celebrating World Cardmaking Day - MY SPACE

Hello friends!


Click HERE to find all the information about Challenge #1


I'm here with the rest of the gang of the Joy Clair team to share a bit about our workspaces and a tip!

SOOO....here it goes!  I finally found my desk (hahaha) and was able to take a few quick pics of it before it was completely covered again.  Take a peek:





You can see a few sneak peek projects in the making - can you spot them?

My tip is actually both papercraft AND non-papercraft related (SHOCKING!). I'm also a sewist - so I need to organize all my fabric!  Originally, I had it in totes, but it wasn't getting used that way. I decided to group it all by type - and LOOK how much I ended up with! WOW!  Better get to the sewing.  This brings me to my next tip - organizing your papercraft supplies!  Those black bins above the fabric are sorted between different types of supplies - in this case, my Rinea Foiled Paper, Adhesives, Tonic/Nuvo Products and Chipboard/Wood Accents. The rest of my office (while not this neat right now!) are also sorted this way - bins and photo boxes! It makes grabbing what I need quick and easy.
