STAMPlorations 4th Birthday Blog Hop Day 1 and Giveaway

Hello everyone… Happy Monday! This week I am joining the STAMPlorations team as guest designer to celebrate their 4th Birthday! And this birthday celebration last for the whole week with blog hops, link ups, and lots of prizes to win.

This blog hop today starts from STAMPlorations blog where you can see the full inspirations and informations on the Birthday Celebrations Hop and Wishlist Linky Party. To enter the giveaway, please continue reading…

Today I have you cards that I created using the new STAMPlorations stamp sets and CUTplorations. My first card I created with a shadow-die cutting technique using the Blossom Sprays #1 – Dee’s Artsy Impressions and Cheers Word Stamp & Die.

I stamped the blossom image with archival permanent ink on a watercolor paper, and before I colored them, I die-cut the word cheers and put the pieces a side.

I colored them with watercolor paint and die cut it again with a stitched rectangle die from my stash.

After the panel dried well, I added it on the black card base with adhesive runner, and then I added the cheers die-cut word with 3D foam tape for extra dimension on it.

And for my second, I created it using the new stamp sets: Bold Sentiments – Beautiful and Blossom Sprays #1 – Dee’s Artsy Impressions.

I also stamped the image on a watercolor paper with black archival ink pad, then I watercolored it with some watercolor paint. And I die-cut it with a pierced rectangle die from my stash. I added the panel on a white card base.

For the sentiment, I stamped it on a piece of vellum paper that I already cut it down to with just on top of the image. I used archival ink pad also. It took a while to let the ink dry, but if you are in hurry, after you stamp the image with archival ink, add some clear embossing powder on it and heat set it. Or you also can just dry it with craft heater, but need to be very careful to not heat it too long, the vellum paper can curl.

I added the vellum paper on the card with some vellum adhesive that dries clear. And I finished this card with some white pearl gems.

And now to the Birthday Celebration…

Joy Clair: Let’s Celebrate Tutorial and A Tip

Hello from Indonesia! Summer is here for sure! I hope you all have been having fun doing outdoor activities with your family and friends. We are now in Indonesia and enjoying the time with our family and friends. More pictures later 🙂

This month at Joy Clair blog, the Design Team members are show-casing tips and tutorial how to embellish your projects with anything that bling 🙂 Birthday cards with blings are more fun!

I have like a birthday card to share with you that I created using Let’s Celebrate Clear Stamps and to how I embellished it with some gems for extra bling on the cake and the girl. I also have so much fun creating the background and watercoloring them. Visit Joy Clair Blog for full tutorial post and more pictures!

Before I go, I have a tip how to clean your stamps after stamping.

Before I removed them from the Mini MISTI lid, I sprayed them with Joy Clair Stamp Cleaner, and wiped them of with baby wipes (a cloth or paper towel work, too!). I love this stamp cleaner! It cleans all kind of dye inks of clear stamps. You should check it out 🙂

Joy Clair: Flawless For Summer

Hello everyone… I hope you all are having fun in this Summer season! We are spending our Summer in Indonesia this year and so far we are have a blast!

Today, I have a clean-and-simple plus layering card that I wanna share with you all featuring Flawless Stamp Set, a Bible Journaling Clear Stamps from Joy Clair.

I stamped the images and sentiment on a white cardstock with Memento Black Tuxedo ink pad and then I colored each of them with ShinHan Touch Twin Markers. And then I fussy cut them with scissors, but you also can cut them out with the SVG cutting files with electronic machine. Each stamp set you purchase from Joy Clair will come with free SVG cutting files.

I added some glitter with Spectrum Noir Sparkle Glitter Brush on each images.

All pieces are ready to be put together. First, I added the sentiment with 3D foam tape, and then I added the others, one by one, overlapping some of them under the sentiment with some adhesive and glue dots.

For extra bling, I added some clear gems assotment on it. That finished my card today. Come over to Joy Clair blog to see more inspirations from the Design Team!

THANK YOU so much for stopping by my blog today. I hope you all can enjoy it and always feel BE-YOU-TIFUL every day!
