No-Line Coloring Dog Gone Christmas Card

Hello everyone… I am back again today with a mixed media Christmas card. Today is No-Line Coloring Dog Gone Christmas Card. It is one of the new technique that I tried and need some more practice 🙂

No-Line Coloring Dog Gone Christmas Card With Joy Clair

I am sharing a full photo tutorial how to create the card on Joy Clair Blog today. I created using the new Dog Gone Christmas Stamp Set. This stamp is totally super adorable for creating Christmas cards and handmade gifts for dog-lovers.

I stamped the images with Desert Sand Mement Ink Pad on a piece of white cardstock. And then colored them with Prismacolor Pencils and used the Colorless Pencil to blend the colors.

You cannot see the lines of the stamped image becuase I stamped them in the lightest color ink so it is easy to color on top of it. This is the no-line coloring technique. It is fun coloring technique to try.

After I colored them all, I cut them one by one using micro tip scissors.

Thankful For You Mixed Media Card In Two Ways

Hello everyone… It’s the Thanksgiving week… We have so many things to be thankful for. One of them is YOU! My blog readers and crafty friends. THANK YOU for all your love and supports in this year…! You all have blessed me, encouraged me, and with your kind words you help me to grow and keep growing in many ways. And today I have these Thankful For You mixed media card in two ways… for you!

Thankful For You Mixed Media Card In Two Ways

First, I created the backgrounds using the Peony Number Two ARTplorations Stencil and Ken Oliver Color Bursts – Caribbean Set.

I put the stencil on a piece of watercolor paper, sprinkle the color burst powder on it, and sprayed with some water. Watching how the powder turn into watercolor is so fun 🙂

I lifted up the stencil of the paper, instead of wiped it of, I grabbed another watercolor paper, and put the wet stencil on the paper and I got another print watercolored background.

Thankful For You Mixed Media Card In Two Ways

I dried the papers with craft heater for speedy drying, you also can let it sit to dry. After they dried, I run them through my diecutting machine with the largest size of the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies.

I added both background panel on base cards with Tombow Xtreme Adhesive.

Then I randomly stamped some of the images from Mixed Media Grunge stamp set using Memento Dew Drop – Sorbet Scoops, to create more texture look on the backgrounds.

Thankful For You Mixed Media Card In Two Ways

I die cut the Thankful Word Die using creme and light grey cardstocks. Each color I die cut 5 times. And then I stacked them together using the liquid glue to create the chipboard sentiment.

Before I added the chipboard sentiment on the card, I stamped the sub-sentiment from Wonderfall Time Stamp Set. I finished the card with some gold assortment sequins.

My cards today are inspired by the photo inspiration from the CUTplorations November 2017 Challenge. I used the color combo and theme. The CUTplorations Challenge team share their projects on STAMPlorations Blog today to inspire you! And… you still have time to play along with this month challenge. Link up your project HERE.

3rd Annual STAMPlorations Giving Thanks Blog Hop and Wishlist Linky Party

Hello everyone… WELCOME to the 3rd Annual STAMPlorations Giving Thanks Blog Hop and Wishlist Linky Party. This is a special blog hop with 36 participating designers showcasing the 11 news stamp sets. And there are prizes to win! So let’s… get blog-hopping!

This blog hop starts at STAMPlorations Blog, where you can read the full details on the blog hop and wish list linky party. Many chances to win the prizes… The full list of participant blogs is at the end of my blog post.

For this blog hop, I created 2 projects showcasing the new stamp set, Wonderfall Time stamp set, designed by Sherry Russ. There are 18 pieces of Fall/Thanksgiving themed, clear stamps in this set.

The first project is a mixed media tag. I cut out the tag using the ATC Tag Builder Die Set and heavy weight white cardstock. I applied some of the clear gesso on the tag using old credit card. I dried it with my craft heater.

3rd Annual STAMPlorations Giving Thanks Blog Hop

Next step, I added some of the Distress Crayons on top of the tag, blended with my finger, and I sprayed with some water while holding it right side up on top of a paper towel. This way the ink run down the tag to create the background. Then, I added some of the Vintage Photo Distress Ink along the edge of the tag.

After the background dried, I stamped the leaves and pumpkin with Ranger Black Archival Ink Pad. And then I colored the pumpkin with Arteza Real Brush Pens and watercolor brush.

Last step, I stamped the sentiment with the same ink on the tag, and then I stamped the sentiment on a white paper strip, and added some Vintage Distress ink to colored it. I added the sentiment trip on the tag with strong liquid adhesive.

3rd Annual STAMPlorations Giving Thanks Blog Hop

For my second project, I created this card with the same stamp set. First I cut out the tag using the same die ATC Tag Die set, and then stamped the background with Memento Dew Drop – Desert Sand.

I scribble some Distress Crayons on a white card stock to create the Fall colors, I stamped the leaves and fussy cut them with micro-tip scissors. I added the leaves on the tag with mini stapler.

And then I stamped the sentiment on another white cardstock, cut them out into banner and paper strip. I added the banner on the tag with mini stapler, too.

To make the card, I cut out some of the Fall theme patterned paper from Close To My Heart (expired), added them on a kraft  card base with adhesive. And them I added the tag on the card with thin 3D foam tape and then I added the other sentiment paper strip with thick 3D foam tape. And I finished the card with wrapping some of the natural twine ribbon.

Those are my projects to share with you for this Giving Thanks Blog Hop! I hope they inspire you to create today!

A Bible Journaling Page And A Mixed Media Card With Joy Clair

Hello everyone… Today I have two projects to share with you. It is a Bible Journaling Page and a Mixed Media Card using new stamp sets from Joy Clair.

My first project is a Bible journaling page using Color By Faith collection – Jesus Is My Jam. I love David and his heart. How much he loved God and most of the time his talked to God in songs and psalms. Today’s verses are from 2 Samuel 22. It is about his song of thankful to God for delivering him from his enemies. This whole passage fill with praises to who God was and for what He had done to David’s life.

CAS Watercolored Poinsettia – Christmas Season

Hello everyone… I am back with Christmas card (again)…It is a CAS Watercolored Poinsettia Christmas Season card.

I have been making Christmas card using the Poinsettia Greetings stamp set from A Jillian Vance Design. I stamp and heat embossed the poinsettia with gold embossing powder. And then I colored them using watercolors brush pens and watercolor brush.

AJVD Christmas Season

After the watercolor paint dried, I fussy cut the flower. On my card today I only used the smaller size of poinsettia.

I die cut a one of side of the white card base using one of the Elegant Stitched Dot Edge Dies. I added a piece of clear acetate on the back of the die cut using strong double sided tape. And then I added the other piece of the edge die cut, aligned it a the bottom of the card and cut off the extra.

I added some gold metallic splatters on the card with flat watercolor brush and Finetec Gold watercolor paint.

I stamped the sentiment directly on the acetate window using StazOn Black ink pad. Then I added the flower with 3D foam tape and finished it with some of the Scralett Satin Sequins.

Today I am also sharing this card at A Jillian Vance Design Blog… I hope you find an inspiration to create your holiday project. THANK YOU so much for stopping by today. May you all have a fabulous blessed day!

Joy Clair November Challenge, Fall Leaves, Mixed Media Card, and More

Hello everyone… NOVEMBER is here! The cooler FALL weather is finally arrived here in Southern Ohio. It is time for the new challenge, Joy Clair November Challenge and a new release info.

For this month challenge, we have this beautiful photo inspiration for you and this month’s theme is Stencil It.

For this challenge, I created a mixed media card using the Joy Clair – Fall Leaves Stamp Set and TCW 6×6 Bricks Stencil.

Joy Clair November Challenge Fall Leaves Mixed Media Card

First, I stenciled the bricks on kraft cardstock with VersaMagic Cloud White Ink and make-up sponge. Then I die cut it with one of the ODBD Rectangles Dies. I set it aside to dry completely while I working on the leaves.

Joy Clair Nov Challenge

I stamped the leaves from the Fall Leaves stamp set with Hero Arts Autumn Ombre Ink Pad, and then I fussy cut them with micro-tip scissors. Then I added some glitter on each of the leaf with Spectrum Noir Sparkle Brush Pen.

Joy Clair Fall Leaves

I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment from the same stamp set on the stenciled panel. I wrapped some of the May Arts Ribbon Natural Twine on the panel and then I added it on the card base with some 3D foam tapes. I then added some white paint splatters from the mix I made of white acrylic paint and water.

I added those leaves on the card with liquid adhesive and 3D foam tape, too.
