World Card Making Day with Joy Clair Stamps


Hi there friends and fellow crafters, Happy World Card Making Day 2017!!! Today I am here with a fun project the team worked on together.

The idea behind the project was each member decorated a 3" x 3" square and then cut it into 1" x 1" squares and mailed one to each member of the team and kept 1 for themselves. Once the "inchies" were received we made a card using them in one way or another. This was quite a fun project to work on with the team, and really goes to show how we work well together given the fact most had the same idea for which set to use.

Unfortunately I am traveling and 2 of the "inchies" did not arrive for me to use in my project.

These are the inchies received:


My completed project:



In order to create this project I personally used 3 of the Joy Clair stamp sets. I used the tree from Happy Halloween, the grass sprouts from If You Dare, and the mummy from October Fun.

I used Memento Dew Drops for all my inking with this project, I used Rich Cocoa for the Tree base, Espresso Truffle for the Tree Trunk, Cottage Ivy for the Grass base, j
Bamboo Leaves for the Grass Sprouts and Summer Sky for the sky background.

I then used Tear Tape to adhere the inchies to the base, some to simulate the tree leaves, and one to act as the Halloween bag for the little mummy child. The mummy is attached using foam squares as is one of the inchies for added dimension.

I do hope you enjoyed this project today as much as I had fun making it. Inchies not received by the time this project was created will be used in a future project.

As mentioned, we have a fantastic line-up and three Special Guest Designers joining us today, all of them had been winners of our Challenges!!!. Check out the Hop order below:
