Welcome to the Color by Faith Holy Week blog hop with Joy Clair
This Holy Week we are celebrating with the stunning range of Color by Faith Stamps available from Joy Clair creating beautiful art work.
I created this Bible Journaling spread with the Reckless Love stamp set and Hosanna stamp set.JNHosannaPge

At first I messed up this page so badly, but I took a couple of days to reflect and just pray and rested in the Lord and it came together in the end.
Funny how we try and impress God with perfection when He is just happy with our hearts – after all He knows us much better than the perfection we strive for.

JNdetail3

What does the Bible say about Hosanna? Hosanna is a word from Hebrew that is commonly used as an exclamation of adoration, praise or joy. In the Old Testament, it is applied only in scripture as “help” or “save, I pray.”
In the New Testament, the word Hosanna appears to be a “special kind of respect” referred to the one who saves.
Much like The Lord came and saved this journal page, He saves us daily from sin and imperfection – if only we call on Him.

JNdetail4

I think the title on this page speaks to me the most. I stamped “Hosanna” in Black Versafine Onyx, then added some inking using Oxide inks. The oxide ink lightened the black ink a lot,
and offered me the perfect opportunity to add a shadow of white StazOn Pigment over it slightly off-set for a stunning end result.

page2

I started off with layered of inking and paint on my background.
Stamped leaves and flowers onto cardstock and cut them out. A light inking on the leaves in green adds colour, but it is the white flowers that really pops against the colourful background that I love.

JNdetail2

A few white paint pen dots and graphite scribbles finishes off this page.

Until next time – Hosanna to the King!
Wishing you a blessed Easter, peace and love.

How to use 2 stamp sets to create 2 Floral cards – Joy Clair.

Welcome to today’s blog post filled with inspiration using 2 stamp sets from Joy Clair to create 2 different cards perfect for Spring and Summer flowers.

card2

I used the following stamp sets to create these cards.

card_main3

I used the small flower cluster from the Martha’s Flowers stamp set and stamped it repeatedly on white cardstock and used Tombow markers to add colour to the flowers.
The leaves are from The Reckless Love stamp set.

detail2JN

The sentiment was stamped onto a round piece of cardstock, and then the flowers arranged around the circle to create a wreath.

detail3JN

detail4JN

For my second card I created a background using some stencils. On top of the card I added stamped and coloured flowers, that sit on top of a stem that was stamped repeatedly using a sentiment from the Whale Hello stamp set.
The one flowers was adhered flat and the top one was raised using foam tape for dimension.

card1

The smaller flowers were cut from the center of the bigger flowers and arrange across the background.
At the bottom of the card a stamped sentiment raise on foam tape adds more dimension.

How to use hotfoil stamps with spray inks for stamping.

Hi! It’s time to create a colourful background with stamping and hot foil stamps.
Hello and welcome to another blog post with me Jowilna. Today I am sharing a single page layout where I created my own stamped background patterned paper with a hot foil stamp. I love how this turned out and its so fun and easy to create.
LePetitJardin_stampedlayout

 detail9

step 1 – Place your hot foil stamp onto your craft sheet or scrap paper face up. Use spray ink and mist your hot foil stamp liberally.
step1

step 2 – Flip a sheet of white cardstock over onto the stamp and lightly press down onto the paper where the stamp is underneath it. This pressure will transfer the colour onto the paper. Repeat several times using a single colour.
step2

step 3 – Repeat step 1 and 2 with 2 more colours of spray inks. Keep stamping the image onto the background until you are happy with the look. Leave the ink to dry.
step3

step 4 – Stamp some more flowers, but this time I used an ink pad to stamp the flowers and cut them out.
step4
step 5 – Cut out some extra flowers. I also trimmed the white edges off of the elements form the die-cut ephemera packet.
step5
Assemble your layout by adding a 3″ (7.5cm) wide strip of patetrned paper on the left edge of your background. Add your photo using foam tape. Then add your stamped flowers and cut out elements.
detail6
Add some embellishments and diamante. To add interest to the large flowers, add some gel medium and then sprinkle with gold glitter and leave to dry.
detail4
These colourful flowers are the perfect element for any project and by changing up the way you use your hot foil stamps, you can change the look and effect.

Until next time – I hope you experiment with all those gorgeous hot foil stamps you have.

Sangria Inspired Christmas Tag.

Every year I make loads of Christmas cards, but this year I am creating tags for friends and family. A quick alternative to attach to a gift and even packets of freshly baked biscuits.
The tag is often underestimated but this will become my go to way of adding a quick thank you to gifts – quick and easy to make with loads of impact.

3D Dream Big Frame Decor by Jowilna Nolte

On the Kaisercraft blog today with a home decor frame using the Hide and seek range.
I created this fun dimensional frame using this gorgeous range – Hide and Seek. Perfect for little girls and boys to insert treasures into the frame
adding to the dimensional look.JN_roomdecor_main

The little fox head stamp was coloured using Metallic Gel Pens and a layer of dimensional glaze added as a finishing touch.

Stamping directly onto the background below and above a vinyl sentiment cut on my Silhouette machine.

The leaves arrange on top of each other using a 3D silicone adhesive to keep the dimension.

I love how this frame turned out – perfect to make any room a magical place.

I used my Fireworks sprays from Imagine mixed into texture paste and stenciled through a dot stencil to achieve the coloured dots.
This is part of solving the case and also using some of my favorite products and techniques.
Will you play along this month?
