Happy Anniversary Joy Clair Blog Hop

Hi everyone, I am participating in the Joy Clair blog hop today to celebrate their Anniversary.  Joy Clair is now 4 years old and I was privileged to be on their inaugural design team.  Watching this company grow these last few years has been amazing.

I created two different cards for this hop. 

My first card is a fall card using a combination of both old and new stamps.

Using a masking technique, I stamped 3 pumpkins from the Fall Time Planner stamp set and the Harvest Blessings stamp set on a white panel.

I masked the pumpkins again and stamped the Broken Brick Background stamp on top.  Masking the pumpkins ensured they would remain in the front of the brick wall.

After coloring the pumpkins, I lightly inked the brick background.  Next I die cut the panel with a large Spellbinders die and matted it with a larger panel of cardstock.

I created a 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" square card, added a panel of green and placed the image on the card with foam adhesives.  Then I stamped and die cut a phrase from the Harvest Blessings stamp set, adding it to the left corner.  Does it feel like fall yet?

My next card using the Born to Sparkle stamp set.  Going for a totally different look, I stamped a panel of  Rinea Silver/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper with the included small stamps.  As I wanted the small stamps to sparkle, I used Rinea's Ghost Ink.

The panel was matted with black and white cardstock, then wrapped with silver glittery ribbon before adding the panel to a glittery card.

The sentiment was stamped on Rinea Gold/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper with black ink then die cut and added to the card with foam adhesives.

Please visit the Joy Clair store to see all their amazing stamps and stop by the Joy Clair blog to see lots of inspiration.
