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!

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Dynamic Duos combined with CAS Colours and Sketches

I am getting the hang of combining challenges....not sure if that's good or bad... In the past I would just put all my "creative energy" into one challenge and then just link up with others, if the card just happened to fit...but now I do that on purpose. Well, I'll see how it goes....                           Anyhow here is the card that came out of this: I did not want to add a sentiment - I 'll add it later, when I know who will get it. And here is a close -up: Challenges: Dynamic Duos CAS Colours and Sketches Addicted to Stamps and More Amusing Challenges Materials: Papertrey Background Basics: Super Stripes, Memory Box Chloe Stem die. --X-- Card for Maddy: You may know already about  Maddy ,  who  was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and went through chemotherapy treatment followed by a stem cell transplant from her (then) fifteen year old sister Melanie.  She now has a relapse and this car

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
