Hello, friends! It is Jessi from the Joy Clair design team. I have been enjoying making a variety of projects lately! I actually had to challenge myself yesterday to sit down and make a card! I actually finished my projects for today's post last week. It has been super hard to keep one of these projects under wraps! I stepped out of my comfort zone and so glad that I did!
My first project for today highlights the new Bee Kind stamp set. This stamp set is part of the Color by Faith stamp series.
When I first saw the octagon stamps in this set, I thought that they would be perfect for a background scene and a cross-stitch. It has been years since I did cross-stitch and decided to give it a go. (Even though I did straight stitched, not cross-stitches.) To start off, I stamped the images onto the fabric using a light color. I used two different yellows to outline the octagons. I used black on the outline of the bee's flight path. At the last minute, I decided to try to stitch the bee, so I stamped that image and stitiched away. I could not get the body to work, so I decided to use paper for the body. I stamped the hive on scrapbook paper. The hive is cut out and attached with glue. I was not brave enough to stitch the phrase, so I stamped it with black ink and left it as is.
My second project for the day is a Bible page using the new My Cup Runneth Over stamp set.
I love paper-piecing! So I decided to use that technique on this Bible page. I used a variety of prints for each cup. I used marker to color in the spilled coffee parts of the image. I added a woodgrain paper on the bottom of the page to resemble a table. This was a very simple page to create, only time consuming to cut out the different prints.
Thank you for stopping by!
