Thanks for stopping by today! It's Karen Letchworth here today sharing two simple cards I created using some of the New Release along with some of my older favorites. I always have so much fun playing/creating with my Joy Clair Stamps. They're such high-quality, clear acrylic stamps that always give me crisp, clear images. I'm never disappointed with the quality of my Joy Clair Stamps. For my first card, I used a piece of simple white cardstock, a stencil, and some acrylic paints to create my background. Next, I stamped the image of the girl as well as the sentiments using the new Proverbs 31 Woman stamp set. I just LOVE this set, and my teammates have made some of the coolest cards with it. I do hope that you stop by the Joy Clair Blog often for inspiration...I'm surrounded by SO much talent on this team. I love seeing their creative ideas. Anyway, I finished up this card with some washi tape, a couple of sequins, and a tiny little rusty paperclip. My second card has a story to it (you can read that here, on my personal Blog Post). Long story short, the vintage truck from our AWESOME new Friends & Flowers stamp set was "repurposed" from another project. It was colored using my Copics. I stamped and embossed the sentiment using the Reckless Love stamp set. I love how you can mix and match all of Joy Clair's wonderful stamps and use them on their own, or together if desired.
The word BLOOM that I stamped on the license plate of the car is also found (along with lots of other fun words and sentiments) in the Friends & Flowers stamp set. All of Joy Clair's wonderful stamps work together and compliment one another. I've been working on my embossing skills (I really struggle with it) so I took a close-up photo of my handiwork. It's definitely improving, but still has a long way to go. I'm trying!!
I do hope you'll take a moment to check out Joy Clair Stamps...whether it's their Custom Stamps, the stamps I've used today, or any of their oodles of awesome stamps...you won't be disappointed with what you find here at Joy Clair; and there's always LOTS of fabulous inspiration. Hope you'll visit again soon!
