Joy Clair New Releases are Live!

I am super excited to share with you two of the new Joy Clair releases! I created a Bible art piece with one and a card wit the other. I also made two ATC with them as well!

Hope

Instead of using the new Hope Stamp Set as a way to express hope, I used it as a way to show strength and take on a warrior attitude. I have Celiac Disease. For years I prayed that God would heal me even though I did not know what I had. Once I got the diagnosis and avoided gluten the symptoms pretty much disappeared. Though my body did grow weary my soul did not – hence the saying and verse!

For the ATC I portrayed a warrior and thought of all of my fellow sisters who struggle with cancer and other diseases.

I found the “We Can Do It” card set in Washington DC last simmer. I gessoed the base and went over it with a wet paint brush and wiped the face clean. Once it was dry I stamped my image and words.

Mermaid at Heart

This might be my favorite new release set! The tail is a perfect sassy flirt and the sayings coordinate beautifully. For the card, I picked up some specialty paper at my local craft store and embossed it. I simply stamped the sentiment on another sheet and layered it. For the tail, I embossed it in black and used watercolor markers to shade it in. I made it shiny with Glossy accents!

I mimicked the process on the ATC, just working on a smaller scale.

Make sure you check out the shop for all the new releases and hop and check out what the other designers did with different stamp sets!

Rinea Foiled Paper

A new player in the craft industry is Rinea Foiled Paper. I discovered this small business about three years ago and have been hooked ever sense! As a design team member I have played with this paper a lot. This year I have done videos for their channel and wanted to share a few with you.

Distress It with Alcohol Ink

This is my favorite substrate to use alcohol ink on. It creates the most amazing distressed look.

Frogs, Flamingos and a Pineapple!

For this month’s Joy Clair design team assignments I made five cards (2 sets). The first set is in celebration of Joy Clair’s 5th Birthday.

I made the pattern paper on each of these cards with my gel press. The video on how to make your own is here:

The second set is a Bible art stamp set, but I thought it would be perfect for summer. I made cards with bright yellow and pink.

To see more on how to make any of these cards please visit the Joy Clair blog! I share all the details there 🙂

Boss Babe Card Set

Joy Clair Stamps and Thermoweb have come together for a wonderful blog hop! I created a set of striking cards using my favorite products from Thermoweb — foil, transfer gel, Glitz Glitter gel, a deco circle stencil, white card stock and a nifty new tool to help apply the gel. I decided on the Boss Babe stamp set as the sentiments of this set.

Get It Girl

To create this card I used the Glitz Glitter Gel and the stencil on black cardstock. I stamped the sentement and embossed it in silver along with all the edges. I used black glitter cardstock as a mat on each card in the set.

She Believed She Could So She Did

I repeated the same process as I did on the black card on this one. I used white cardstock instead to see how the Glitz Glitter Gel looked on a lighter surface.

Out Dream Yourself

Transfer gel and foil are my favorite products Thermoweb makes! I used them to create this card by applying the gel through the stencil, letting it dry and applied foil. I used a little Nuvo Shimmer Powder on it to make it pop.

You’re A Diamond They Can’t Break You

This is one of my favorite techniques o use with the scrap foil created by transferring an image! Simple cover a substrate with transfer gel, let it dry and adhere the scrap to it. This not only make it so nothing is wasted, it creates a gorgeous card base!

As A Set

This set took 40 minutes to create once the Transfer Gel was dry and the results are stunning! The Stencil Pal Tool is probably my favorite new tool of 2019! It may look simple, but the weight, size and flexibility of it make it easy to use and a must have for spreading any medium over a stencil.

10 ATCs!

I set a goal to create one ATC with each new stamp set I got. A lot of times when I get a stamp set it immediately is put away and eventually forgotten. An ATC is an easy way to use a stamp set that takes relatively little time.

What is an ATC?

An ATC stands for Artistic Trading Card. It is basically the equivalent of a baseball card to sprots fans only to artists! 2.5 by 3.5 is the size, so it is a much smaller substrate than most people are comfortable working on — this stretching one’s creativity.

The Joy Clair Spring 2019 Collection

As a designer for Joy Clair, I am blessed to receive all the new releases. I used them to create these ATCs.
