Bible Journaling: Make A Joyful Noise – Psalm 98

Hello everyone, today I am sharing a Bible Journaling on Make A Joy Full Noise To The LORD from the book of Psalms 98.

Make a joyful noise to the LORD for He has done amazing things!

Make a joyful noise to the LORD for He is good!

Make a joyful noise to the LORD for He is my Salvation!

Make a joyful noise to the LORD for He is God!


On this Bible Journaling page, I use the Joyful Noise stamp set, one of the new release Bible Journaling – Color by Faith stamp sets with Illustrated Faith acrylic paints, embossing powder, Faber-Castell Pen and Big Stamper Brush Pens.

Come visit me at Joy Clair blog, where I show how to heat-emboss on journaling Bible page.

I hope this will inspire your to spend your time with God and His word, worship God and write journal creatively.

THANK YOU so much for visiting me today! Have a wonderful and blessed day!

Hero Arts Digital Kit: Clean-and-Simple Thank You Cards

Hello everyone… this is my second post today 🙂 Please scroll down to see the Special Pre-Order New Release from Our Daily Bread Designs 0r you can click it here to read it.

Beside Birthday Cards, Thank You cards are the most needed to be in my stash. There is always a need for thank you card. So creating a batch of cards, the Clean-and-Simple is my to-go style 🙂 And today I am sharing how to make these cards at a2z Scrapbooking blog using Hero Arts Bright Blossoms Printable Digital Kit (PT003):





To create this card is very simple. Here are the steps that I did:

  1. Open the digital images on any software you have that can upen JPEG format.
  2. Resize the images to what you like. I did the images in between 3.5″ – 4″ wide.
  3. Print the images on White Cardstock. I arranged them to be fit in A2 size cards.
  4. Then Cut them out as you desire.
  5. Color them with any coloring medium. You need to let them dry completely if you want to use Watercolor paint, or any Alcohol Markers.

I printed the pictures a day before and let them dried over night. And I colored my cards with Watercolor paints, Spectrum Noir Blendable Pencils, and ShinHan Alcohol Markers.

I added some splatters on the card with some Black Pearlescents paint.

For the sentiment, I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiments from Hero Arts Thanks – Stamp & Cuts set on the vellum paper strips and added them on the card by wrapping it around the white panel. Then I added the white panel on the black card base.

That’s my CAS cards today. I hope you all are inspired to create more handmade cards and send them out to spread the love and joy!

Then I added a strips of black glitter ribbon on the side. I die cut the Tulip Heart Die and Layering Hearts Dies to decorate my card. And I added the hearts on the card with some 3D foam tape for some dimensions.

Mixed Media Card: God Bless You

Hello Everyone… I hope you all have a great week so far… From snowy and cold days, this week we have rainy, windy and warmer days. The girls would want to have more extra snow days, but this Mama loves Spring to get here soon… LOL!

I created a mixed media card and on this card today has that splash of Spring on it… the colors and the flowers, too 🙂

I added the one of the new ODBD – Plum Pizzaz Paper Pad, on the base card with permanent adhesive runner. Then using the Shutter stencil and metal spatula, I added the Ranger Texture Paste on the background. And I set aside to dry.

Then using MISTI, I stamped the flower from A Happy Hello Stamp Set from Our Daily Bread Designs with Moss Green, Yellow, and Purple Spectrum Aqua Markers on Canson Watercolor Paper. Then using the small watercolor brush, I traced the flower to give some watercolor look. Then I stamped it again with Versafine Onyx Black ink pad and added some clear embossing powder, then heat-set it with my craft heater. Then I added some glitter with Spectrum Noir Sparkle Brush. I fussy-cut it with my non-stick micro-tip scissors.

I die cut the ODBD – Stitched Ovals Dies to create the frame. I die-cut the banner from ODBD – Pennant Flags Dies and the matching stitched banner  from ODBD – Double Stitched Pennant Flags Dies, too. After I die cut them, I run it through the machine again to embossed them with the same dies to give them extra texture on it. Then I stamped the sentiment on the banner die cut with Versafine Onyx Black ink pad. Papers I used for these die cuts are from ODBD – Plum Pizzaz Paper Pad.

I put all the pieces together using Glue Dots small, medium and thick. I used glue dots becuase I want to have some dimensions to the layers and they will be added right on top of the texture paste. And glue dots will hold them strongly on the texture paste 🙂

And I finished my CAS – Mixed Media Card with some purple sparkly dots using the Ranger Purple Stickles.

  • A Happy Hello Stamp Set
  • Plum Pizzaz Paper Pad
  • Stitched Ovals Dies

Joy Clair January New Release Blog Hop & Giveaway

Hello everyone! Today is a start for a new week and I hope you all ready for to fill each day with joy, love, laughters, and creativity. School is back and still cold here in Southern Ohio. I try to keep myself and my youngest one busy doing some activities and crafts.

I have a news to share with you today… I am joining Joy Clair 2017 Design Team! So excited and thankful to be part of this new company and amazing team. You can read the team announcement here and see who is in the team, too.

Today also is the Joy Clair New Release Day! Joy Clair releases 4 awesome and beautiful stamp sets for Bible Journaling and Valentine’s Day:

On this blog hop, I would love to share with you a Bible Journaling Page and a card using Treasure – Bible Journaling Stamp Set, one of the new release stamp sets from Joy Clair:

Joy Clair - Treasure Bible Journaling

On my Journaling Bible, I created a long bookmark to put inside the page. First, I cut out Canson watercolor paper with the same width and length with the side journal space. Then I created the background with Smooshing technique using Tombow Dual Brush Pens, acetate plastic and water.

Once the background dried well, I heat-embossed the images with Versamark Ink Pad and Gold embossing powder. Then I stamped the sentiment and other images with Versafine Onyx Black Ink Pad with second generation stamping technique.

I added the ribbon and brad using my WRMK Crop-a-dile. And it is done 🙂

Joy Clair - Treasure Card

For my card I did the same technique to create the background, but this time I added some Pearl spray mix on it to give it some shine and sparkle. And then I stamped and heat-embossed the gems all around the panel with white embossing powder. Once they all cool done, I die cut the panel with the WRMK Scallop Rectangle nesting dies.

I added them on the card base, first with regular adhesive runner, then the second one with 1 layer of 3D foam tape, and the third one in the middle I added 2 layers of 3D foam tape so they will pop up like steps.

Last step, I heat-embossed the sentiment on a piece of vellum mix of black and glitter embossing powder, then I die cut it with the rectangle die and added it in the middle of the card with vellum adhesive.

And my watercolored, clean and simple card is done. Sorry in the picture it does not look like it shiny. I tried to capture the pearl shine but did not show up really well, but it is really sparkly in real life 😀
