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.....

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

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!
