Joy Clair September Challenge

Hi Everyone,

its September and therefore a new challenge at Joy Clair!

We have a wonderful inspiration picture for you. Our theme is Anything Goes and/or use at least 3 colors:

You see I closely stuck with the inspiration picture, using the umbrella from the set April Showers. I did a little "stamp surgery" on that stamp. I stamped the umbrella with Versafine ink and masked it for repeated stamping. Colored it with water colors. The sentiment is from the set Hugs and Smile. I heat embossed it and mounted it with foam tape. Added a strip of envelope liner paper and splatters for more interest.


Hop on over to see all the inspiration from your talented DT! Hope to see you at the challenge! You have until September 30st to link up and as always the winner gets a $25 gift card for the Joy Clair store - what are you waiting for?

But - please follow the rules, or you won't be eligible to win.....

Glad to see the surgery was successful...more glad to see these fun and beautifully colored umbrellas. It appears you used all the colors and to such excellent effect. Beautifully done.

Das ist mal wieder eine geniale Idee.
Mit solchen Regenschirmen, macht einem der Regen überhaupt nichts mehr aus, oder???

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
