Joy Clair September Blog Hop

Hi Everyone,

Its blog hop time at Joy Clair!
You probably arrived from the talented  Steph Ackerman


You are going to love this month sets! I have the pleasure to introduce the set Give Thanks.


For my first card I choose to make a shaker card - used some acetate, which had a tree printed on it and some patterned paper for the background. Added sequins and micro beads as fillers. I used a stitched die (SSS) to cut my window.


This is the give Thanks set - I love the different fonts and all the wonderful sentiments.



My second card is simple - used a flower die (Memory Box) and die cut it in two shades of yellowy orange - it looks like one in the picture but its actually different shades. The white one I cut from water color paper. Used a light grey card stock as my card base and a strip of Kraft paper. Added black splatters and some sequins.


Love how this came out!

Aaaack! A delightful, autumnal twofer. Stunning cards...that shaker is simply gorgeous. All the details, printed acetate, beautifully chosen patterned paper and those pretty shaker contents. Just GORGEOUS. But then you regale us with this fabulous thank you card (you're right about the fonts on these sentiments...awesome). All the texture you've created on this seemingly simple (but NOT) card. Wow!

Mirror Image Stamping with So Suzy and the MISTI

Hi Everyone, I am so happy to be part of this wonderful event - the collaboration between So Suzy and the MISTI from My Sweet Petunia doing mirror image stamping.  This event is going on for the ENTIRE  MONTH! We are demonstrating the  Mirror Image Stamp    which coordinates with the Misti Stamping Tool! All month long, different bloggers will post a card using the  Mirror Image Stamp .  In my tutorial today, I will show you how use the  Mirror Image Stamp  on your cards. You can basically double your stamp supplies that way! The  mirror image stamp  is  a 4.25" x 5.5" piece of red rubber with no foam backing. So much larger than the other mirror image stamps out there and therefore much more useful!
