No Prob-Llama With a Twist!

The No Prob-llama stamp set is so fun! It is a perfect excuse to use bright colors. I created two projects with it this month. The first is a twist on a traditional Birthday card. Instead of using paper I used a Birch Clear Scrap mini album. The added Color Burst was just right for the background. The glittered cupcake gave it just enough sparkle to complete the front.

For the inside of the card I added a fun fringe using Rinea Foiled Paper .

Here is a video on how to create the card:



One thing that I am trying to do with each stamp set I get is create an ATC. By working on such a small substrate it is fast and really stretches my creativity! I also tend to remember the stamp set down the road. Usually if I get a new stamp and stash it I forget about it and it never gets played with. By playing with it right away it is like it is etched in my brain that I have it and am more likely to use it again! Hopefully several times. 

Here is the fun ATC  I created with this stamp set:

This stamp set was a lot of fun to create with! I encourage you to create an ATC with a new stamp set and share it in the Joy Clair group on Facebook. Please tag me in it! I would love to see!

They are truly out of this world!

Kid You’ll Move Mountains!

My sweet little nephew has his third birthday coming up. I want to get him my favorite children’s book “Oh The Places You Will Go!” for his birthday. Joy Clair has a stamp set that matches perfectly and I knew I needed to create a card for him using it. To make it personal I added a few baby pictures I took of him.

The scan in cut trimmed out the images after I colored them in with copic markers. Here are two videos on how this card came together. The first is on how I created the paper.

The next video is how to create this card using the handmade paper created in the last video.

This is going to be a great gift because of how perfectly coordinated it is! I have a feeling the card and book are going to be treasured.

Until next time ~ Happy Crafting!

You are Mermazing!

Temperatures should be warming up soon and I am dreaming of summer! In anticipation of warmer months I created a sweet little Mermaid card to give away to one of you 🙂

This card was a lot of fun to make! I used the fin background stamp from Joy Clair and embossed it with Rita Barakat Mermaid Fin Powder. I added colorburst to the fins. For the image I used a sentiment from a Pink and Main set and stamped it with this Rita Barakat stamp. Here is the video:

I want to give this card away to one of you! All you need to do is tell me in the comments what your favorite part of summer is! I will randomly pick a winner and announce on April 1st.

Until next time ~ Happy Crafting!

You Make me Horn-y

Joy Clair has amazing stamps that are being released. The “I Think You’re S’Whale” has snarky and silly sentiments as well as cute images. For this card I chose to use the Narwhal because I really wanted an excuse to stamp “You Make me Horn-y”.

To create this card I laid out a few different shade of blue Colorburst. I misted watercolor paper first with water. By misting it before sprinkling the color it allows the powder to stay on the paper. After the Colorburst was sprinkled I sprayed it with water again until the color and consistency was satisfactory.

I stamped the narwhal on a white piece of card-stock and colored him in with alcohol markers, He was trimmed out and paced on the cards with pop dots. a few dots of clear Nuvo dots completed him.

The stamp set includes bubbles and I stamped those in white. I added a little clear Nuvo Glaze on them and finished the card off with random placement of Nuvo drops.

This is a great card to give a loved one to make them smile. What do you like better a narwhal or whale? Answer in the comments!

And here are the other fabulous designers showcasing a few more releases!
