Welcome to the JoyClair Around the World Bloghop
We have an amazing line-up of creative partners sharing their ideas, craft spaces and challenges with you today.
Beginning at 7:00 a.m. (Easter Time) we will be posting FIVE (5) different challenges throughout the day. And at 1:00 p.m. we will have a very special
Blog Hop around the world with Joy Clair & Friends, featuring a dazzling array of very special friends and guests designers!!
For right now let’s get some of the most important information out of the way so we can have fun, fun, fun all day (and night) long!
We want everyone to be able to play so there is *no* requirement to use Joy Clair Stamps although we would be thrilled if you did. Please make a new card though!
We will have all challenges open until next Sunday, October 14th, 2018 at 11:55 p.m. EST to let you create a little more, because celebrations should never be limited to a single day, right?
If you are unable to participate in the challenges, simply comment on the posts. We will be giving one prize to a randomly drawn commenter compiled from all WCMD 2018 posts.
Add your link to the appropriate Inlinkz Link-up tool for that post. You may enter as many times as you wish while the challenges are open. There will a prize posted on each challenge and one card will be randomly chosen as a winner of that prize from those that Link-up.
Have tons of fun!

We really want to reward those who enter multiple challenges. The crafters who enter a different card for at least FOUR (4) of the challenges (hopefully all of them!) AND add JCGP to the name of their link (for example “Lisa Lane JCGP”) will be entered into a special pool to receive the Grand Prize. Entering to the WCMD -18 My Space Challenge below will qualify as 1 of those 4 challenges.
What is the Grand Prize you ask? We are giving away 6 Stamps Sets from Joy Clair Store (just in time for our upcoming next Release)!
I am co-partnering the Letters challenge with the amazing Nicole Winslow
For my card I used a combination of a sentiment and a stencilled background using letters.
step 1 – Stamp your sentiment onto smooth white cardstock using Warm Breeze VersaFine Clair ink. Punch the sentiment into a cricle.
step 2 – Stamp coffee beans onto the circle using Pinecone VersaFine Clair ink.
step 3 – Stamp the Doodle Flower Background onto a card panel using Warm Breeze VersaFine Clair ink.
step 4 – Use VersaFine Clair and blend 2 colours over the stamped image to add colour.
step 5 – Use Alpha stencil and glitter paste to stencil letters onto the background and leave to dry. Once dry, trim into a small strip.
Stamp more coffee beans onto the front of your card panel. Combine the sentiment circle with the stenciled strip onto the card. Use foam tape to raise the circle sentiment for dimension and interest.
We hope you enjoyed the World Card Making Day with us featuring the stunning Joy Clair stamps.
