CLC Thursday Coffee Break: Monochromatic Shadowbox Card

Hello everyone…Happy Thursday! I hope you all have a wonderful week so far 🙂 My youngest daughter started her Kindergarten Camp this week and she was super excited. I, on the other hand, had mixed-feeling…happy and sad at the same time. My baby is not a baby anymore, she is growing up so fast. Well…let’s take a coffee break with me… Grab your favorite drink and let’s get crafting.

Today, I have a monochromatic shadow box card that I created for the first time. My card is called Shadowbox card. I used the new coffee stamp collection from Joy Clair, called Christmas Coffee Clear Stamps, Memento Rich Cocoa Ink, Watercolor Pencils, Spectrum Sparkle Brush, and Circle Die set.

For me layers and 3D look cards is intimidating, but I challenge myself to try more 3D look cards instead of flat, one layer, or CAS cards after I saw some of the Fancy Folds and Moving Card tutorials at The Stamp Nation. And also, I have a Pinterest board where I pin lots of cards techniques, tutorials and tips. If you like to check them out, you can go here. Many tutorials also you can find on YouTube for sure.

Come over at Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog to read full details about it. Thanks a latte for stopping by today. Have a fabulous day!

Joy Clair August Inspiration Blog Hop Day 2 And Giveaway

Hello everyone… Welcome back to Joy Clair August Inspiration Blog Hop. Today is our second day to share projects with you using the new collection from Joy Clair. If you have not yet seen the Day 1 project, you can go here to check it out and join the blog hop, too.

Joy Clair Noah's Ark

On my today’s card, I use the new Noah’s Ark, Bible Journaling Clear Stamp Set. It is one of the Color By Faith Series that you can use for your Bible journaling projects and other Faith-base projects. Every stamp set that you get from Joy Clair, you will get free SVG cutting files that you can use to cut out the shaped with any electronic die cutting machines.

Joy Clair Noah's Ark

I used Distress Inks to create the sky background, I blended each ink with make up sponge and sprayed with some water. I let the water soaked in for about 30 seconds and then I dabbed it with paper towel. That creates the distress look on the background. I stamped the sentiment couple times with Versafine Onyx Black Ink using Mini MISTI to get bold result.

I stamped the boat, animal, clouds and birds on a white cardstock using Mini MISTI also. I arranged them all on the cardstock, picked them up with the lid and stamped using Versafine Onyx Black ink. Then I fussy cut them with scissors.

I colored the boat with Distress Ink Vintage Photo and watercolor brush. I added the ink on the craft mat and picked it up with my damp watercolor brush.

I added finished pieces on the card with some glue adhesive, then I decided to create a frame for this card. I die cut the frame using 2 sizes of rectangle dies and added it on the card. Then I added the extra clouds on in with 3D foam.

Now come and join us the last day of the blog hop and remember that we always have prizes for our readers and visitors that comment HERE in our corporate blog and in ALL designers blog.

Joy Clair August Inspiration Blog Hop Day 1 and Giveaway

Good morning everyone… Christmas is 131 days from today. That special day is getting closer! And I officially have started my Christmas card project this Summer 🙂 I would love to send out more handmade cards this year.

Today, I have several cards to share with you showcasing the new Christmas stamp collection from Joy Clair.

Joy Clair Ugly Sweater Background

Stamping with Ugly Sweater Background Stamp is easy using stamping tool like, MISTI. I used my regular size MISTI to create the backgrounds on above and below cards. I stamped them with Cloud White VersaMagic Ink on red and green cardstocks. I heat set the ink with craft heater, then I sprayed them with mixture of Perfect Pearl spray. I dried them with craft heater again, then once they are dry well I distress each edge of the cardstock with distresser tool.

Joy Clair Ugly Sweater Background

For the tags, I die cut the tags with one of tag die set and stamped the sentiment from Christmas Coffee Clear Stamp Set with Versafine Onyx Black ink pad. I arranged the sentiment words on MISTI and stamped the tags multiple time without removing the stamps.

I wrapped some twine around the background panel, and tied up the tag. Then I added the finished background panel on black cards with lots of adhesive. I also secure the tag with some glue dots. I finished each card with the candy cane felt stickers that I found in my Christmas stash 🙂

Joy Clair Ugly Sweater Background

On this sweater card, I was inspired by some projects I saw on Pinterest 🙂 It is actually super easy to make. First, I arranged the border stamps from the Ugly Sweater Background Stamp on the piece of 4.25″ x 5.5″ white cardstock that I put on MISTI. Then I picked up the MISTI lid, and added the ink one by one. I used the colors from Sorbet Scoops Memento Dew Drop Set of 12.

To create the collar for the sweater, I die cut it with 2 sizes of circle dies. I also die cut the neck shape with the circle die.

I added the sweater background on the card base with adhesive runner, and then I added the collar with On Point Glue, it is a perfect glue for thin and small things. I added some extra dots on the sweater with irRESISTible Pico Embellisher – Bronze.

JC Ugly Sweater Background

And here is another take on the sweater. I added felt holly leaves and berries on the collar. I think it turned out cute 🙂 What do you think?

Let’s start the fun with the creativity and remember that we always have prizes for our readers and visitors that comment HERE in our corporate blog and in ALL designers blog.

Bible Journaling: Gracious Word Will Sweeten Your Soul

Hello everyone…Today I have a Bible journaling page to share with you all. I am inspired by the truth in the book of Proverbs 16:23-24.

When we fill hearts with God’s words and truth that have set us free and gaining wisdom, we will speak out gracious words that will sweeten every soul. They are like a honeycomb. That is the truth. We can bless and uplift others with your words that come out of our mouth, or otherwise.

On my page today, I am using the Bee Kind – Color by Faith Stamp Set with Gelatos, Stamper’s Big Brush Pens and Sparkle Glitter Pen. Please visit Joy Clair Blog to see the full process tutorial how I created this page.

My bible is so bulky and pretty bumpy with all the embellishments that I used on pages, so I added a piece acetate and fun foam that I cut out to use as mat and stamping mat to put under that Bible page. I also added a piece of craft mat that I cut out to fit for Bible journaling. You don’t have to do this step if you have a flat enough surface for stamping. I skip this mats when I work on my new journaling Bible.

When I was done, I cleaned all my stamps using Joy Clair Stamp Cleaner and wiped them off with baby wipes.

I hope this page will encourage our to continue bless others with sweet words and for you to continue to spend your time with the LORD through Bible journaling. You also can find more details inspirations from the Design team at:

Watercolor Block Stamping: Be-Leaf In Yourself

Hello everyone… We are almost in the middle of August. Lots of Fall/Autumn theme stuff are out already. Can’t you believe that? So…let’s enjoy the rest of the Summer no matter what!

Today I have couple of Fall/Autumn themed cards that I created using a fun techniques called Watercolor Block Stamping and Inlaid Diecutting. I tried the stamping with block before and love the texture and effect on the results. But on these cards, I tried the technique from Jennifer McGuire that I watched on YouTube.

I added the Distress Inks directly on the stamping block and spray with some water. Then stamped it on a piece of watercolor paper.

On the video she also showed how to get extra splatter by tapping the block while the watercolor paint still wet. I did that and love the distressed/splatter look on the edges of the rectangle. I also added some splatters on the panel.

When the panel was dry, I run it through my die cutting machine to cut out the leaves using A Jillian Vance Designs – Grand Leaf Trio Die Set. And I also cut out the panels with Rectangles Die Set.

I stamped the sentiment from A Jillian Vance Design – Be Leaf In Yourself stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black and Mini MISTI.

To put the card together, I added them on the card with some adhesive runner. For the leaves, I used the inlaid diecutting technique using 3D foam tape for extra dimension.

Here’s another one I made with the same technique.

May these cards inspire you to jump into Fall/Autumn themed projects. And… I also sharing these cards at A Jillian Vance Designs blog today, hope you all can visit me there 🙂

Thank You so much for stopping by here today. Hope you all have a fabulous blessed day!
