Joy Clair 5th Anniversary and New Release Blog Hop

Welcome to the Joy Clair 5th Anniversary and New Release Blog Hop! We are so thankful you are here to join us celebrating this special birthday.

This blog hop, is not only Joy Clair design teams but also there are amazing guest designers sharing their projects showcasing Joy Clair clear stamps. You should arrive from Cornelia’s blog.

On my first project I use the new Everyday Collection: Crystal Background Stamp and You’re A Gem stamp set to create these CAS cards.

For extra blings to the gems and crystal, I used glitter cardstock for the background and I use glitter embossing powder to heat embossed the images.

I use resist-watercolor technique to create that crystal frame after that, I fussy cut them with scissors.

I stamped the sentiments in the middle of the crystal frames with VersaFine Clair ink pad.

These cards are super easy to make yet glittery and shiny.

For the second project, I created an art journal on my Traveler’s Notebook using the new Color By Faith collection: Shadow of The Almighty.

I started with creating the beach scene with white gesso and Gelatos.

I did not use any special technique. It is simply cover the pages with white gesso using flat brush and dry it.

After that, I scribble the Gelatos on the page and blended them with my finger. I used baby wipes to remove some of the blue color and the patterned left on the page turned into clouds.

I sprayed the page with Workable Fixative spray so the Gelatos won’t smeared or change.

After the background was done, I started to stamp the images on the page using VersaFine Clair ink pads. I dried it with craft heater. Colored the chair and umbrella with Dina Wakley Media Scribble Sticks.

I stamped the word “Psalms” with Lindsey Script Alpha stamp set and wrote the verse number with Tombow PITT Artist Pen.

Bible Journaling | Galatia 4:1-7

Hello everyone… Today, I have a Bible journaling page to share with you all.

My Bible journaling is from Galatia 4:1-7. Apostle Paul reminds us that we were slaves and by God’s grace he adopted us to be His own children through Jesus Christ. We are no longer slaves to the world and laws, we are now His children and God gives us the Holy Spirit. Through this adoption, we become His heirs! YES… We are the heirs of the King of kings!!! This is an amazing news! 

I am sharing the full details and steps to create this page at Joy Clair Blog today. And the stamp set I use on this Bible Journaling Page is the newly released Color By Faith Collection called Heir of God. This stamp set is just perfect for this verses.

I started by adding heavy body acrylic paints directly on my ESV journaling page. I learned from an online class that acrylic paint will not bleed through and can be a great first layer to prep the thin page. I used small flat brush to blend the blue, teal, and green color.

And then, I used the metallic gold acrylic paint to highlight the verses. I used very thin layer so I still can read the rest of the words on the same page.

I used craft heater to dry this page quickly to avoid wrinkling.

I have a piece of fun foam that I trimmed to fit under my journaling Bible page and use it all the time for stamping. It helps to get nice and crisp result, I rarely had to double stamp my images. If I got not clear image, I always trace it or connect the line with Micron Pen 1. It is my go-to Permanent Pen with India Ink and no bleed-through the paper.

For stamping, I use VersaFine Clair ink pad this time becuase it is a permanent pigment ink that works well on acrylic paints.

I hope you all will enjoy the simple steps I share at Joy Clair Blog today. Thanks a lot for stopping by today. Have a wonderful, blessed day!

Color By Faith Blog Hop | Holy Week Bible Journaling and Easter Card

Hello everyone… April is finally arrive. Spring has sprung here and Easter is 3 weeks away… I am so thankful for this season and for new things that God is preparing for us.

Today, I am joining the Joy Clair team for the Color By Faith Blog Hop. We are preparing for the Holy Week and we hope that through this blog hop, you all find some inspirations for Holy Week and Easter using the Color by Faith Collection.

My first project is a Bible Journaling from the Luke 23 and Luke 24 where we all can read when the Holy week started, the Crucifixion, the Death, the Burial, and the Resurrection of Jesus.

I use the Color by Faith Collection: Hossana, My Redeemer, and He Has Risen on this page. It is very simple to do this journaling page. I always like to still be able reading the Words on the page instead of covering them.

I covered the journaling space, top and bottom of the page with thin layer of white gesso.

I use VersaMagic Dew Drops for stamping all the images and sentiments. And I put a fun foam and thicker cardboard under the page to get good result of stamping because my Bible is bumpy with stickers and thickers already.

And my second project is an Easter card using My Redeemer, and He Has Risen from theColor by Faith Collection.

I created couple watercolored background using Catherine Pooler Ink Pads and water with smooshing technique. Then, I sprayed some water and dabbed it off with paper towel for distressed look on them.

I stamped the cross with Memento Rich Cocoa ink pad on a brown cardstock and then I colored it with Prismacolors Pencil and colorless blender pencil. Then I fussy cut it with scissors.

I stamped the cross image again on a purple cardstock with Grape Jelly Memento Dew Drop, then I colored the clothe with Prismacolors Pencil and colorless blender pencil. I fussy cut just the clothe and then glued it on the cross image.

For the sentiment, I stamped the “hallelujah” word with Memento Rich Cocoa ink pad on one of the watercolored background panel and trimmed to fit across the card. I stamped the “he has risen” phrase on a white cardstock using Tangelo Dew Drop ink pad, trimmed it into sentiment banner, and then I added it on the cross with permanent adhesive glue.

I used Double Stitched Rectangles Dies and Double Stitched Oval Dies from Divinity Designs for the mat and frame.

Psalms 63 Bible Journaling

Hello everyone… Today, I have a Bible journaling page to share with you all from the book of Psalms 63.

This psalm was written by David when he was in the wilderness of Judah and when he was on a run. He was waiting for God’s helps to deliver him from his enemies, hungry and thirsty. David was not only thirsty and hungry physically, but also his soul hungry and thirsty for God’s presence in his life. He remembered how God had helped him in the past and had faith that He would help him again.

We often feel in that we are in the middle of the “desert” of our lives, feeling alone, and forgotten. But my friends… have faith and trust in His promises that He won’t leave you alone nor forget you. God will not desert His children! When you come to Jesus and drink from His well, you won’t be thirsty again and you will be satisfied (John 4:13-15).

For my journaling, I use the ESV Psalter Journaling Bible, Blossom – Bible Journaling Stamp Set, one of the Color by Faith Collection, pigment ink pads, heat embossing powder, and watercolor paints. Head over to Joy Clair Blog for full details and tutorial.

Journaling God’s Words In Two Ways

Hello hello hello everyone… I hope you all are doing amazing! There are many ways you can journal God’s word and today, I would like to share two ways of journaling God’s words.

I love using stamps, inks, and various coloring mediums on my Journaling Bible and Art Journal Book. Sometimes, I write and doodle on the pages. On both on my Journaling Bible and Traveler Notebook today, I use the newest Joy Clair Color By Faith stamp sets.

The first way is using a Journaling Bible. You can find many versions of this Journaling Bible. I use my ESV Journaling Bible for this project and use the Rise and Shine Stamp Set and Light Bulb Moment Stamp Set. I used Memento DewDrops and VersaFine Clair Inks for coloring, and for coloring I used Arteza Real Brush Pens and water brush.

My second project is journaling the with Traveler Notebook. I made this traveler journal out of cardstocks, mixed media papers, watercolor papers, and printing papers for the purpose that I can use various kind of mediums for mixed media projects, too. You can find the tutorial how I made this traveler notebook here.

On this page, I use new Reckless Love Stamp SetNew Year New Me Stamp Set, and Light Bulb Moment Stamp Set. I use Sakura Koi Water Colors, Sharpie Fine Makers, VersaFine Clair ink pads, Fireworks! Spray, White acrylic paint, and Gelatos on this page.

Joy Clair has a new Bible Journaling Kit with this new Reckless Love Stamp Set!

You can read the full details and tutorials at Joy Clair Blog today. I hope these two ways of journaling give you some ideas how to journal God’s living word in creative ways.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today. May you all have a blessed and wonderful day!

Joy Clair New Release Day 1 | Psalms 118 Bible Journaling

Hello…hello…hello…everyone! Today, starting this new week, I have a Bible journaling to share with you all. It is my first journaling page in 2019 from the book of Psalms 118:26-27.

And… it is an exciting day becuase it is a new release day at Joy Clair family! They have lots of new Everyday Stamp Sets and new Color By Faith Bible Journaling Stamp Sets. They will be showcased by 2019 Design Team Members. Head over to Joy Clair Blog for details of the new release and to see more inspirations. Read all the way to find out how you can enter for the giveaway!

On my Bible journaling page today, I use the new Hosanna Color By Faith Stamp Set. This stamp set is beautiful and great for Bible journaling, making cards, and even for planner. It is also great for the Easter themed projects.

I started with creating the background by adding the acrylic paints directly on the ESV Journaling Psalter Bible page with the brayer. It is no need to use any clear gesso when using acrylic paint on the page, they won’t bleed through.

The acrylic paints dried quickly also but can always use craft heater to dry the paint if you need to. On my page, I let it air dry and the advantage of it is the page won’t be wrinkle.

Once the background dried well, I stamped the sentiment in the middle of the VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink Pad and acrylic block.

I stamped the leaves on the page using VersaFine Clair Verdant Ink Pad and Green Oasis Ink Pad.

I wrote on the page using the green metallic Arteza Gel Pen.

I added some thin layer of white gesso around the page using my finger to create the white frame.

And then using the same gel pen, I doodled the frame on the verses I focus on which is Psalms 118:26-27.

I added some paint splatters on the both pages using white acrylic paint and Marabu Spray Paints using my fan brush.

I hope that this project inspired you today to create projects and art journaling.
