Hello friends, and thanks for stopping by the Joy Clair Blog! It's Karen Letchworth today sharing two cards with you. My first card showcases you the AWESOME new I Hope Stamp Set from Joy Clair Stamps. And because we are partnering this month with Rinea Foils, all our projects this month have included some of their wonderful products. I hope you've been enjoying the New Release at Joy Clair Stamps. We've all been having SO much fun using these amazing new stamp sets, and we know that you will LOVE them as much as we do. As I said, I'm featuring the new I Hope Stamp Stamp on my first card today; and let me just say that this is an awesome set to own. We all know those who have fought (or are fighting) cancer, and those who need this type of encouragement. This set will help you to create some really gorgeous cards. I stamped the boxing gloves and sentiments onto white watercolor paper using the I Hope Stamp Set. The word HUGS was stamped in red, hand-cut, and placed on 3-D tape to give it some dimension. I placed a little gem at the top of the gloves, and I also added some cream, black, and red seam binding to my card.
At the bottom of my card, I used a Sunny Studios die to create the scalloped layers. I created one border in red gingham patterned paper, one layer in the Red Foil, and one layer in the Black Foil. These colors can be found in the beautiful Magical Foil Variety Pack. Rinea Foils carries lots of fabulous colors and styles of foil. And...Joy Clair Stamps always has the perfect stamp set. What a great combination!
My second card today was created using another new set from Joy Clair Stamps called Shadow of The Almighty. I used this lovely new set for the sentiment (Relax), the sun, chair and umbrella. I colored all the images using the fabulous 60-Pack Double Ended Markers from our friends over at Leisure Arts. This is a really fun little marker set to have on hand. We're all SO grateful for all the wonderful partners of Joy Clair Stamps.
I used some cardstocks from Bazzill Basics for my base, and I used a piece of basic white cardstock to create the final platform for my card. I sprayed this white paper with Tattered Angels Wheatfields Ink, and also gave it a few drops of Tim Holtz Mustard Oxide Ink to give the background some sparkle and color. A few sequins were the finishing touch, and Joy Clair Stamps are the real star of this card.You're always going to find amazing stamps at Joy Clair, and lots of great inspiration on the Joy Clair Blog.
