Welcome by, everyone! Karen Letchworth today sharing a sweet card set to give you another look at the various stamp sets recently released here at Joy Clair. These 12 beautiful sets each contain sentiments and images that can be used independently or in combination with one another (and other Joy Clair Stamps). The card set that I'm sharing today does just that....it combines several (3 in fact) of the newest Joy Clair stamp sets.
I started with cream cardstock to make my base, and I attached a piece of inked patterned paper by machine stitching it. I topped that with a cream die-cut piece onto which I stamped in various colors with the Swirls (small swirly image) found in the Reckless Love Stamp Set and then in dark brown a sweet sentiment that's found in the God's Promises Stamp Set.
I also machine stitched on some small inked patterned paper strips, added some pink, white and green prills, and I some stamped leaves that were created using the adorable leaf stamp also found in the Reckless Love Stamp Set. It's always fun to use smaller stamps to create a background, and this card was a great combination of smaller stamps from one new set, and the sentiments from another. All the stamps found at Joy Clair are AMAZING, and work so well on their own and when combined with other Joy Clair Stamps. I had a lot of fun combining Joy Clair stamp sets on these projects.
For this card, I also created a matching bookmark (shown above) by attaching some patterned papers by doing a bit of machine stitching. I also stamped leaves and flowers found in the new Reckless Love Stamp Set, and a small sentiment (Good Luck!) found in the cute new Lucky Charm Stamp Set. SO many choices, and they're all SO sweet. Don't forget about the fun challenge, and all the inspiration every day here on the Joy Clair Blog. We always enjoy your visits. Happy shopping!
