Joy Clair Meets Imagine Crafts: Blog Hop and Giveaway

Welcome to Joy Clair and Imagine Crafts Collaboration Blog Hop! We are so glad you joined us for this fun blog hop. We have two different design teams, full of talented ladies that will surely inspire you along the way for these 2 days: May 17th and May 18th! And of course amazing prizes to share with you!!!

I have 2 projects to share with you today. First is mixed media card using the Dream Big clear stamps, Hello Sentiments clear stamps, Kaleidacolor Bouquet, Memento Tuxedo Black, GooseBumps Texture Spray, and Fireworks! Girls’ Night Out Pack.

I used a brayer to add the Kaleidacolor Bouquet on a piece of white cardstock. I just love how the colors blend so well! Rainbow makes me happy Next step, I sprayed the GooseBumps Texture Spray on it and let it dried aside. Once the panel dried well, I run it through my diecutting machine with Double Stitched Rectangle Dies.

On another piece of white cardstock, I sprayed the Fireworks! Sprays and then stamped the Dream Catcher image from Dream Big clear stamps with Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad and fussy cut it out. And I also stamped the sentiment with the same ink and cut out a banner.

Check out the shimmer from the Fireworks! Sprays… don’t you love it? I know I do and I cannot stop using these sprays.

On my second card, I also use the same Fireworks! Girls’ Night Out Sprays to create the background and as watercolor paint. Oh yes… I love watercoloring with these sprays

For the background shaker window, I sprayed the inks on a piece of watercolor paper, and then using my Mini MISTI I stamped on of the borders from the Aztec Background clear stamps with Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad. Then I run it through my diecutting machine with 2 sizes of Rectangle dies to create the shaker window.

I stamped the warrior image from Prayer Warrior – Bible Journaling clear stamps with Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad and watercolored it with the Fireworks! Girls’ Night Out Sprays. Then I fussy cut it with scissors.

For the sentiment, I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set with Memento Dew Drop – Sorbet Scoops (Rose Bud and Angel Pink) and Mini MISTI to create the ombre color. Then I cut it out as banner.

I added the acetate on the shaker window with On Point Glue. Next, I added the sequins on the cardbase, and then added the shaker window with thick 3D foam tape, and added the girl warriow and sentiment banner with On Point Glue on top of it.

That’s my cards today to share with you all. I hope they inspire you to create your own handmade cards to share the joy with others!
