The background paper is from American Crafts "Hot Cocoa" collection. I stamped the Kettle from the Mother's Day set, the Coffee Cup from the My Cup Runneth Over set and the sentiment came from the Everyday Sentiments set. A little bit of coloring and a few sequins and my project was complete.

Joy Clair Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here bringing you todays installment of Joy Clair Stamps and the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. 
In an effort to keep myself straight this week, I decided to bring you a planner spread I worked on. Hope you enjoy.

I used 3 Joy Clair sets for this project My Cup Runneth OverInk Splatters and Wonderland Letters

You can see off to the left I am not infallible. I originally stamped the sentiment from the My Cup Runneth over set, with an acrylic block, yes that did not work out so well and did not stamp all the way, since I did not take the page out of my planner first. When I went to restamp (not learning my lesson the first time) it was off, so I used a piece of white card stock, stamped my stampoholic and it was perfect.

I then decided to make a shaker card bookmark using the My Cup Runneth Over set. I stamped the image with Versafine Black, and once dry colored with my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers. Added the Gold Rush sequin mix from my friend Kat's shop and used my Fuse Tool to seal it up. Added a ribbon and a planner add on and I was finished with that.

I then went to my stamp table and used the Wonderland Letter set and my Stampoholic to line up the letters and times for when my assignments are due this week. I used Brilliance coffee bean ink on this portion.

Finishing this off, I used the Ink Splatter set and "spilled" coffee on my planner. Let me say, this is something that will never happen as my cup and my stamp table do not know each other, they have not and will NEVER meet. Using Frayed Burlap distress ink I made the "coffee" splotches. I then remembered my coffee ring stencil by Tim Holtz, grabbed it, added that touch and I was finished.

Or so I thought. Taco Tuesday just really needed to be represented, I have a little place not far from the house that has $1 taco's on Tuesday and most weeks I do go have a couple. And this little guy wanted to be stamped, so why not.

Yes I typed a lot, hope you have stuck with me this far. If you have, do me a favor and leave a comment and let me know... beef or chicken, what is your favorite taco type?

Moon Flower Designs and Challenge Yourself 86










Greeting crafty friends. I am here today with a project using an image from our friends at Moon Flower Designs. This shop has some great digital images and I hope you find as many fun ones to work with as I have.



With Halloween coming up next month, I decided to use this cute Steampunk girl and turn her into a Halloween card. 



 Steampunk Girl

First thing I did was print the image with my laser printer, and then used my scan n cut to make a perfect cut. I went through my stash and picked out the background paper I wanted to use,  and I then went to work using Spectrum Noir markers. My girl really needed to not clash with the paper.  I used foam tape to add some dimension for the image, a few Jolee stickers and my project was complete. 


I hope you have enjoyed my project and participate in our challenge. Please head over to Martha's blog to see how to enter :)

Joy Clair September Blog Hop




Greetings Crafty Friends. Time for another great installment of the Joy Clair Monthly Blog Hop. 
Today I am going to highlight two sets from this months release. 
Fall Time was made using the new Fall Planner set. I used Recollections Ombre Ink to stamp the leaves, and Versamark to stamp Fall Time, I then used Whispers brand opaque Orange embossing powder and my heat gun. The card stock is from DCWV Mixed Media mini stock. I grabbed some burlap from my stash, and a few sequins to finish off the look. 

As soon as I saw this God's Time stamp set I knew what I was going to do. Using a embossed page from a Tim Holtz embossing folder as the background I built the card up from there. After stamping the image and using my Scan N Cut to carefully cut it out, I used Versamark to restamp it, and used Copper embossing powder. I then sprayed the time piece with Tattered Angels Sea Glass for shimmer. Using GinaK Dark Chocolate dye ink I stamped the sentiment. Finishing it off  I used pop dots on the time piece to add some dimension.
