Back to Basics: How to Create A Card
To create this card I went back to the basics with embossing and layering. The floral pattern on the coffee cub is just perfect for spring! I wanted to showcase it and used color pencils to make it pop. To see how I created this card please check out my video:
Yesterday I was on the Joy Clair website sharing how to use a cut file with a Scan N Cut. I know there is a way to directly link the file into my machine, but I am techno challenge and don’t have the patience or desire to figure it out. This is for all of you that, like me, want to stay in our comfort zone while crafting!
Betz Golden is going to show us how we can use Cut Files with a Scan N Cut using a file from the Cutting Cafe! With the end of the school year fast approaching, this is a great project for a teacher.
For each of these cards I used scraps from my stash and buttons I had purchased on sale at Joann’s that I forgot I had. To create the cards, I downloaded the cut fie from The Cutting Cafe and printed it. I scanned the printed copy into my Scan-n Cut and saved it. I used the saved file to cut the elements of each of the cards and assembled. Here is the tutorial:
I also included the list of supplies in the video description for your convenience as well as here:
These cards were a lot of fun! Adding the glaze to each coffee cup really set it off.
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.
I am participating in another exciting blog hop with Joy Clair! This hop is all about the Color By Faith stamp line. I must confess that I am still new to Bible art. These stamps are fabulous and have really helped me learn this new form of art. Over the last few months I have created several pages.
To celebrate the Color by Faith Blog Hop, Joy Clair Stamps is giving away a $25 Gift Card to One lucky winner. Winner will be chosen at random from the comments left on participating blogs, so make sure to visit each stop and leave a comment. Leave comments by 11:59 pm ET 04-05-2019 on all participating blogs. Winner will be announced on the Joy Clair Blog on 04-30-2019
The first page I created with the Color by Faith line was this one:
I shared this a couple of months ago for another hop.

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.
