Welcome to another blog post featuring some of the amazing Christmas themed goodies available now. I love the Mini Stamps from the Naughty or Nice Collection – simple to use and easy to make a statement with on your next project. This stamp is the one I might just chose to use for all my Christmas Cards this year – gorgeous and elegant.

How gorgeous is the new stamp set from Little Birdie? I simply had to colour the images as soon as I got hold of it. It calls for creating a stained-glass window card, but in the meantime, a good colouring session with some of my favourite watercolour markers did the trick.
Today I am participating in the AAA Card Challenge with Joy Clair Stamps.
Join us in the challenge in creating a Clean and Simple card with The theme Up To One Third and the optional twist of bright colours.
Come and play along and join in the fun.
I used this gorgeous Wellie stamp from the Spring Stroll stamp set.
I stamped the image onto white cardstock, added colour with markers and then punched it into a circle.
The sentiment was stamped onto the same cardstock and cut into a rectangle, that I raised using foam tape on top of some thread.
A few embellishments finished off this clean and simple card beautifully. Keeping it all neutral.
I like how the shade of white turned out to be different than my base cardstock – adding some interest but still keeping it clean.
I hope you are inspired by this card challenge and will play along with us. Head on over to the blog to see what the other designers created that are playing along.
Until next time x
And what’s a morning without coffee and God? Pretty dull right? I tapped into my rich brown ink colours to show the richness of Life in Christ.
I used my paper crimper to add some detail to my inked card – the texture makes the card look like a real coffee cup which I love.
The lid was simply inked and a layer of dimensional glaze added and left to dry. I then cracked it lightly so it really looked like plastic. Such fun creating all those little details.
I love how easy it is to make these cards with the cut file. Everything fits perfectly and once cut with my Silhouette machine it took mere minutes to assemble the card.
And inside a little coffee voucher card for a special friend.
And as always I made this card my own, just using the cut file as a guideline for having fun – and what will a card be without some stamping?
Until next time – enjoy your morning coffee and chat with God as you prepare for your day! Blessings Jowilna.
Today on the Joy Clair blog I am sharing 2 cards using 1 stamp set, but changing things up by adding sentiments from another set.
The Joy Clair stamps are so versatile that combining them is effortless.
For my first card I randomly stamped the umbrellas over a piece of white cardstock. I added coloured using watercolour paint and added a layer of shimmer using a glimmer pen.
I chose the colours for the umbrellas from the washi tapes that I used.
For my second card I stamped the umbrellas down the side of a white panel, adding colour in the same way.
Combining different sentiments from different stamps sets is so easy working within the Joy Clair family.
Until next time – I hope you are inspired to pull out those stamps and get creative!
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.
I used the following stamp sets to create these cards.
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.
The sentiment was stamped onto a round piece of cardstock, and then the flowers arranged around the circle to create a wreath.
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.
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.
Take a look at the NEW arrivals from Joy Clair stamps this month that I used.
Until next time – happy stamping!

Today on the Joy Clair blog I am sharing this Bible Journaling page using the stunning new Blossom stamp set.
Surviving when everything feels like a wilderness is not easy – but rest assured God won’t forsake you, nor will He desert you. He will lift you up from this dessert and land of drought into His luscious presence.
Keep going no matter what! Stand fast in your wilderness in His presence.
I started off my page by adding some colour to the background using Memento dewdrop inks and a blending tool. I then stamped the large cactus image directly onto the green area, added some shimmer paint and white gel pen details.
The other images were stamped onto white cardstock, painted with watercolour paint in shades of green and blue, cut out and adhered to the page.
To highlight the text and make it stand out more, I stamped the sentiment in black VersaFine Clair ink, then stamp it again in green VersaFine Clair ink and cut out the relevant word and adhered it over the black word.
Such a simple way off adding colour and importance to a word.
A few ink splats finished off the background page. I love the versatility of this set and am going to use it a bunch of times in my crafting.
Hope you are feeling inspired by the message – and even though life may seem like a bit of a wilderness or dessert – God won’t forsake you. You have come this far keep going.
