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:

Here is the video on how I created it:

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!

Until next time ~ Happy Crafting!

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:

How To Use a Cut File With a Scan N Cut

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.

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!
