Card Ideas For Her

Hello crafty friends… Hope you all are well! Today I have couple more card ideas for her that you can make and send out to your friends to cheer them up and to lift them up.

October is Cancer Awareness Month. Joy Clair released a new stamp set, Hope. This stamp set is dedicated for those who are fighting the cancer. I love this stamp set. The sentiments are very uplifting and encouraging, especially the Bible Verses. The ribbon and gloves are just perfect!

I used the Broken Brick Background Stamp for the background.

My second card is created using one of the newest stamp set also called Mermaid At Heart. I paired it up with the Mermaid Tail Background Stamp.

I used Leisure Arts Double Ended Markers and water with smooshing technique to create the watercolored, ocean background. I scribbled the markers on a craft mat and sprayed some water that turn the marker color into watercolor paint. I added the watercolor paper in it and smooshed around. I dried it with craft heater and then did it the same step to build up the colors.

For stamping on both cards, I used VersaFine Clair ink pads and Hero Arts Unicorn White Pigment Ink Pad.

I hope you visit Joy Clair Blog to read full detail how I created these cards.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today. Have a fabulous day!

For this Challenge #2, you can link ALL the CARD projects that you create using your favorite stamp sets from Joy Clair Stamps. Show us different ways to use our stamps or just stretch it on your creation. Here’s my card for this challenge #2 with this Fall themed card:

I am using one of my favorite Joy Clair stamps, Tea Time Stamp Set. I stamped the images on watercolor paper with VersaFine Onyx Black ink pad with MISTI, and then I colored them with Leisure Arts Double Ended Markers and water brush.

I dried the watercolored images with craft heater and then I fussy cut them with micro-tip scissors.

On the background, I use the Deco Foil Clear Toner Sheet – Endless Leaves and Gina K Design Fancy Foil – Dazzling Orange.

I simply added the foil on top of the pre-printed clear toner sheet and run it through my laminating machine. After that, I trimmed, and then I added on the kraft card with dries-clear adhesive glue.

I added the watercolored images on top of the card with 3D foam tape.

This is a fun way creating a Clear-and-Simple card, yet still have colors and dimensions.

I hope this card inspires you to make a card today to celebrating this Card Making Day. I cannot wait to see what you will make and share with us at today’s challenge.

I cut out the gree and white monoprints using the ATC Tag Builder CUTplorations Die to create the ATC base cards and then I cut the other monoprints with the Coffee Cup Silhouette CUTplorations Die.

I used both positive and negative die cuts on these ATC cards. I added white and black cardstocks as base mats. I added them on the base cards with 3D foam tape and dries-clear adhesive glue.

For the sentiments, I added couple sentiments from the Just Caffeinate Clear Stickers on white cardstock and then I cut it around the stickers with scissors. This way, the sticker will have sturdy, white background. I added it on the card with dries-clear adhesive glue.
