Way to Go Celebration card with Joy Clair and Thermoweb

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Today on the Joy Clair Blog I am sharing a celebration card made using a previous release stamp set and some Thermoweb foiled elements.

I struggled using this stamp set when it first release – I think personally I had been in a bad space for a while and just didn’t ‘see’ the potential. But once I got over the pressure of being creative and just went for it, things fell into place.
First I started with a background I had created using the Gelli Plate and acrylic paints. I then added some foiled elements from Thermoweb/ Brutus Monroe punched into circles. The circles formed a base for my stamped mask to sit on but also used as an element at the bottom of the card as decoration.
A few diamante adds to the theme and a little bit of glamour.
Stamped diamonds colored with markers grouped together with the sentiment at the bottom of the card.
Using foam tape to raise the mask at the top of the card adds some dimension and just makes it stand out against the foiled circle. And now this stamp set is quickly becoming one of my favorites to use . And the moral of the story is simply that once the ice is broken, and you just go for it – things often fall into place. So for today – go out and be brave – just do it!
Until next time Love Jowilna x

Fintastic Birthday Cards with Joy Clair

I am still loving the NEW Joya Clair stamp releases and this one is becoming a sure favourite. Does it feel like that with every stamp set? Yip pretty much. I often think what on earth will I use that set for – and then once I actually do, start colouring and stamping and creating it turns out that I am really loving it. This little shark right here is one of those…

The backgrounds used for these cards were created as samples in a Gelli Printing class. How amazing are they? What did I used you ask, well I used my pigment powders to create these magical effects in my Gelli Plate.
The stamped images were stamped onto my white technique cardstock in VersaFine Clair Nocturne and coloured using alcohol based markers.
The sentiment was stamped onto scrap white off-cuts and raised using foam tape for dimension.
And those magical white spots, well those are stamped bubbles, then coloured in with bleach/jik. The bleach reacts with the colour underneath and whitens out the ink colours to reveal perfect white spots. And then I also splatted onto the background with the bleach for a gorgeous effect. The happiest little sharks wishing someone a fantastic day!
For my second card I used the same coloured backgrounds with my Gelli plate but this background has more white space visible.
If you look carefully you can actually see some yellow sun rays peeking through. This was done on scrap papers where I misted yellow Mr Huey ink through a stencil for a background. And now this background to found a new lease on life with this stunning background.
My stamped sentiment was done directly onto my coloured background also using VersaFine Clair.
The apple was glazed using dimensional glaze for a bit of shine.
And here are my two stamp sets used for creating these stunning quick and easy cards.

I received this stunning little mini-album from Clear Scraps to decorate. I am not a fan of mini albums but had so much fun decorating this little treasure, and had a few surprise end results too.

For the inside of my album I cut white cardstock pages and stamped some images onto them. I used some markers and even a gold Sharpie to add colour to the images.

For the cover I used my Americana acrylic paints and my Gelli plate to create the fun and colorful effect.

My stamped Castle image is from the Heir of God | Bible Journaling stamp

The Castle image was also coloured using markers, cut out and adhered to the cover and then a layer of dimensional glaze added for a nice finish.

But, the inside of the cover reveals a surprise – a gorgeous cupcake cut out. I wasn’t feeling the cupcake image on the outside so I covered it up using my stamped Castle image< but when you open the cover you can still see it.
A fun surprise indeed. Now all I need to do is dress it up with some glitter inside the cut out for a sparkly King and Queen-like cupcake – a perfect match for this album.

I love how the colours and the paint effects all came together so beautifully in a bright and happy project.
The products are of the highest standards and so amazing. And I loved working with them.
