Welcome by today, friends! We're SO grateful for your visit to the Joy Clair Blog today as I, Karen Letchworth, share a sweet card I made for Joy Clair Stamps as we continue to showcase the newest release of stamps. We've been partnering with our friends over at Leisure Arts both last month and this month. Our Design Team Members were privileged to get to work with their gorgeous 60-pack Double-Ended Markers. I've been using them like crazy and having so much fun with them. They work well with Joy Clair Stamps (or any stamps for that matter). But, of course, I still highly recommend checking out all the AMAZING stamps at Joy Clair Stamps. You're sure to find several stamp sets that will "tickle your fancy" so to speak. All their stamps are amazing! So.....for today's project I made this sweet card to inspire you today. My husband told me it looks "Christmasy". That wasn't my intention, but I guess it took a turn in that direction with all the red and green. The border leaves and berries are found in the lovely new Fall Greetings Stamp Set. The sentiment, however, is from a completely different set. This demonstrates for you how easily all of the stamps at Joy Clair can be combined and used with one another. It's awesome, and helps you make the most of your money. The sentiment (You're A Real Gem) along with the speckles and sparkles you see here and there are from the fun new You're A Gem Stamp Set. I love the little speckles and sparkles in this set (like so many of the stamp sets at Joy Clair Stamps) because they're just these adorable little accent stamps you'll find in (most) all stamp sets at Joy Clair, and they help to make your cards EXTRA special. You know....where they just need a little "somethin' somethin' " extra on them, and these extra little accent stamps really help you take your cards and projects to the next level. They're SO much fun, they fill in the small spaces, and can also be used for cool backgrounds and so many other things. I'm tellin' ya, friends..you're gonna LOVE your Joy Clair Stamps.
I fussy cut the borders, colored in the images with my 60-pack Double-Ended Markers, and added some little gems (because of the sentiment, of course) and a length of Natural Burlap String. It's fairly simple, but those Joy Clair Stamps make it easy to quickly create something lovely. We all thank you for stopping by today, and we all hope that you'll visit the Joy Clair Blog often. We love to inspire you!
