Joy Clair Promotion Day 4 with Alicia and Kathi!

 


Good morning, I hope you are enjoying the Joy Clair and Quick Quotes Promotion and Giveaway this week! 

Alicia with you today. I very much enjoying working with the Joy Clair stamps I received.  I had a blast coloring this image with a water brush and PowderPuff Chalking Inks so much so, I made two cards! 

Actually I used the negative to create the second card.  You can just let the scraps go to waste, can you?

 To create this vibrant card I used the following steps:
  • Stamp image twice on white card stock
  • Die cut shapes in the desired areas
  • Color only the die cut pieces using a water brush and PowderPuff Chalk Inks
  • Cut a piece of coordinating Serenade paper to make very thin mat for your die cut pieces
  • Ink all edges with PowderPuff Chalk Inks
  • Layer all the pieces and use pop dots to adhere directly over the same area on second stamped image
  • Stamp your sentiment on top of image in a bold color to coordinate
  • Use the same Serenade paper (black) to create a layer to back the entire stamped portion 
  • Mount this on more coordinating Serenade paper and adhere to card stock

I mounted the stamped image at an angle to make the card more striking.

My second card uses the negative because I just could toss the beautiful image.  It did require one more stamped image on white.  Here are the steps I took to create the second card:
  • Begin with negative die cut and one more stamped image on white card stock
  • Place the negative on top of the full image and determine the area you need to color, you could use a pencil but I just approximated
  • Color your selected area with a water brush and Powderpuff Chalking Ink
  • Stamp sentiment in a bold coordinating color on image
  • Ink the edges with Powderpuff chalking inks
  • Cut the images down to desired size, here I left it 5.5" long but trimmed the sides 
  • Pop dot the negative piece and layer on top of the colored piece
  • Layer on top of coordinating Serenade paper (green)

Close up of the peek-a-boo coloring. Since I used a double stitched circle die, the negative has the same wonderful stitching as a frame for the colored areas.

I used ribbon and made flowers from the paper line as well as adding buttons or flat back pearls for the centers. On one card I used purchased roses for embellishments. Other cards I created borders with punches by Martha Stewart and layered them under the sentiment.

Each sentiment was layered on the same shape paper just the next size larger using coordinating paper.

Such a wonderful group of creative cards. Love how each one is so unique.

Mary Holshouser said...

Coloring the circles was a fantastic
idea. They really pop off the
uncolored paper. Lining them with
the black also helps.
Kathi's cards are wonderful. Love
the sentiments. they will go in
my bible journaling.
thanks to both of you for sharing.
