Happy St Pat Birthday with Joy Clair

No photo description available.
It's another blog hop day! Today I'm using Lucky Charm! I adore this set and so does my youngest who's birthday is St. Patrick's Day.



I started by stamping the clovers in green ink to create a background. I then stamped the leprechaun and sentiment on a pre cut layer, then colored him with copics. Once the coloring was done I layered the panel on a piece of gold foil paper from my stash and then popped the layers on the card base with foam tape.






I then stamped the inside of the card and added my lucky charm to the inside since it's for my little guys birthday! I think he'll love it!

We are picking one winner for each day of the release – a total of four lucky commenters! 
Happy stamping!


Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the HOP!

Rejoice and Blossom with Joy Clair- Art Journal page

No photo description available.

Here is my first project ( an art journal page) with Joy Clair's first release of 2019! I'm so excited to be a part of the team for another term and I just love this set, Blossom! The sentiments are great and I was probably just a little too excited about finally having a set with Cacti in my stash... finally! ;-) You can see all the stamps here.


I started by added color to the page to create my scene. 


I then stamped the cacti on a peice of green cork paper I've had in my stash.


I then also stamped my sentiments and cacti on the background where they would go. So I didn't have to worry about the trying to not cut the needles off, when I fussy cut them. 


I decided I didn't like how flat the cacti looked, so I used some copics to add a little shading to them (as you can see the in the picture with and without shading).


To finish the project I just added my page to my little journal and dated the bottom corner!

ATSM #323- Holiday


Here is a holiday themed card Addicted to Stamps holiday Challenge! I'm sure some people don't want to see Christmas anything for awhile, but it's always nice to have head start for this Christmas! I kept the card pretty simple keeping my image and coloring in the center and only doing a few colors. I stamped the gingerbread house, stamped the decorations and then colored everything. 


I did add some stickles to the candies for some sparkle! 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Supplies:
Lawn Fawn- Sweet Christmas
Copics

Merry Little Christmas January Challenge


Hello all it's a new year and time for a new challenge month at Merry Little Christmas Challenge blog. The theme as always is Anything Goes and this month I decided do a little something different. 

This may not be exactly Christmas but for me snowflakes are always a part of my Christmas decor! I recently started Chalk Couture and couldn't wait to make this snowflake shadow box to decorate my craft room with. 


To create it I took out the inside glass and chalked a teal snowflake. Once it was dry I put it back in the frame and chalked a smaller white snowflake on the outside! 

Thanks for stopping by and Have a Happy New Year!

ATSM #321- Anything Goes


It's time for anything goes with Addicted to stamps and more! Here is my card for the challenge.


I saw sketch online and used that as my starting point for my card. I found some pattern paper that I thought would work well with Tea Time stamp set from Joy Clair I wanted to use. I started to leave the background plain, but felt that it needed a little something. So I used an embossing folder that reminded me of steam from a hot cup of tea or coffee. 

Thanks for stopping by hope you have a great day!
