Hello to all our creative friends, and welcome by today as I share a fun project created for Joy Clair Stamps along with our friends, and partners this month, the Cutting Cafe. During the Month of April, you will be seeing many of the amazing files from The Cutting Cafe showcased with Joy Clair Stamps as we cross-promote and showcase both company's fabulous products. I had a lot of fun making my projects, and I hope you will be inspired as well. I'm sharing my take on a Cutting Cafe cutting file called Pie Slice Template and it is almost as delicious as an actual piece of pie. Now, I'll be honest here...there's no pie inside this box; but instead, it's filled it with candy. Once I had the file printed, cut, scored, folded and taped together, I used some Crate Paper patterned papers and chipboard (Journey collection) to adorn the sweet pie box. I stamped it with several of the arrows from the Inspirational Arrows Stamp Set from Joy Clair Stamps. I added some chipboard arrows as well as the stamped arrows, and I wrapped some natural burlap string around the chipboard arrow on top. I stamped the feather (twice on the side of the pie box) using the feather found in the Unashamed Stamp Set. There are LOTS of great cutting files at The Cutting Cafe, and lots of great stamps to decorate everything at Joy Clair Stamps.
I also stamped the top of the box (the smaller triangle on the Pie Slice Template) using a sentiment (You're On Your Way) from the Going Places Stamp Set, and the cactus found in the Blossom Stamp Set. You can see how everything works together so well, and how the different cutting files and stamp sets compliment one another.
Be sure to stop by both Joy Clair Stamps as well as The Cutting Cafe through the Month of April to see all the fabulous projects being shared each day by all the talented Design Team Members from both teams. That's LOTS of great inspiration, and you can read all the details on the Cutting Cafe Blog as well as the Joy Clair Blog. You'll be sure to find something that excites you and gives you some great new ideas.
I hope you'll visit again soon.
