Fun Watercoloring On Cards and Bible Journaling Page

Hello crafty friends… Today with couple ideas how to create fun watercolored backgrounds on cards and Bible Journaling page.

First project, I used the Wish Big stamp se for these clean-and-simple cards. The background embossing resist with smooshing technique. It very simple and quick way to create watercolored background  with these markers.

And the second project is this Psalms 122 Bible Journaling. This time I used the plastic bag for creating the watercolored background.

I stamped the church image from the Gather Together stamp set on a watercolor cardstock with VersaFine Pinecone, dried it with craft heater, and then I colored it with the Leisure Arts Double Ended Markers and waterbrush. And then I wrote my journaling using the fine pen from the Leisure Arts Hand Letter Set. This pen won’t bleed through the page and writes smoothly on watercolored background.

I am sharing full details and steps how to create these projects at Joy Clair Blog.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today!

Happy 7th Birthday To My Sweet Little Girl

Today is a special day for our family. We are celebrating our little girl’s birthday. She turns 7! I cannot believe it. Time flies fast but we treasure every moment we spend with her and her big sister.

It was exactly 7 years ago around the same time, I delivered a sweet, adorable little girl. She is our second daugther, Emma. She is growing so fast, and she is also literally a fast little girl. It is hard to keep up with her when she moves…

This clean-and-simple, shaker card, I created for her. It is glittery and sequin-ny… totally all describe who she is.

I used the Celebration Clear Stamp, Large Numbers Dies, and Double Stitched Squares Dies. They are all from Divinity Designs. For stamping, I used the VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink pad.

I hope you all enjoy this card today… Have a fabulous day!

Paw Prints and Furry Hugs

Hey all… Happy Saturday!!! Hope you all have had a good week and ready for this weekend. Today, I have this quick, CAS card to share with you all.

I know that many of you, my friends, are puppy lovers and this card is for you all….

I created this CAS, dog loving card using the Fur Baby Love Mega Digital Stamp Set that I paired it up with the Heart Cards SVG Files from Graciellie Design. This digital stamp set is super adorable and packed with sweet sentiments.

I used my Silhouette Cameo 3 for cutting the background panel and also for print and cut the digital image. I colored the image with Leisure Arts Premium Colored Pencils.

And for the sentiment, I printed some of them on a white cardstock, and I cut one of them with the Divinity Designs Large Banner Dies.

Thanks a bunch for stopping by today! Have a fabulous day.

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.

2019 Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day 1 | Bloomdala Coffee Cup To Go

Hello again everyone… Today is the day all the coffee/tea/cocoa lovers has been waiting for. The 2019 Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop has begun!

This blog hop is hosted by the Coffee Loving Cardmakers! It starts from Friday, May 3, 2019 until Friday, May 10, 2019. You all are invited to create any coffee/tea/cocoa projects with Spring or Summer theme and link up your projects with us HERE until Friday, May 10th at 11:55 pm pacific. You also can find the full list of the amazing, generous Super Sponsors there.

Here’s my card today with stamps, dies, stencils, and digital stamps from our Super Sponsor STAMPlorations, together with Hero Arts Ink Pad, and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, who are also Super Sponsors.

On both of my cards, I use the gorgeous Bloomdala Coffee Cup To Go digital stamp. Yup… STAMPlorations now has digital stamps. Check all the digital designs here.

On my first card, I printed the cup on a glossy photo paper. I added some of the alcohol inks drops, added some alcohol blending solution on it, and I use straw to blend them together. It is a fun simple way of adding colors on this cup. Once the inks dried, I fussy cup the cup with scissors.

On a black cardstock, I used Make Marks 6 ARTplorations Stencil,  Unicorn Pigment Ink Pad, and Blending Brush to add the faux stitching on the background.

I cut that black cardstock with Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies. I added both the background panel and cup on a white card with E-Z Runner® Grand Adhesive.

I cut out a white cardstock using the Coffee Fix Phrase Die and I added it on the card with permanent glue pen adhesive.

This second card is a coffee cup to go shaped card. I created it using the Silhouette Studio software. I open the cup file on the software, resized it to 5.5″ tall, and then I trace the shape to create the cutting line.

I create the card base on the software, and then I use the Weld feature to combine 2 shapes. Then, I use the Print-and-Cut feature to print the cup, then cut it my Silhouette Cameo 3. Then I cut the cup shaped card.

I colored the front cup image with Prismacolors Colored Pencils. And I added it on the card base with E-Z Runner® Grand Adhesive.

I stamped the sentiment from What’s Brewing Stamp Set on a white cardstock with VersaFine Clair Pinecone ink pad, then I cut it with Bracket Labels/Tags Nesting Dies. I also stamped the inside of the card with the same ink and other sentiment that from the same stamp set.

I added the sentiment tag on the top of the card with 3D circle foam tape and tied it up with natural burlap twine.
