Joy Clair Stamps Inspirational Blog Hop Day 1

I am soo excited to be here on the Joy Clair Stamps first day of Blog Hopping with the brand new release! This release is HUGE!!!!! Today we will be focusing on the Everyday Collection of stamps, and I get to use the brand new “Christmas Coffee” stamp set!!! This set is filled with a stamp layering mug, holly leaves, coffee beans, and a ton of awesome words, which can be used individually or built up to create your own custom sentiments!! Be sure and watch the video tutorial to see how I created two different, but similar, cards with this brand new set!!

ENJOY!!



I also have another video for your today, sharing a closer look at the new sets and a few ideas for them! I hope you enjoy it!!



 The two cards I created are very similar, but there are a few differences. I wanted to try stamping the cup and layering the pattern in two different ways. The first I stamped the outline in black and the pattern in red, on the second cup I stamped both the outine and pattern in green ink for a different look! I also stamped the little steam swirl in gray ink at the top of each cup, both sizes of holly leaves in black Memento, and both coffee beans in brown Memento. After fussy cutting all of the images I started putting both cards together.

For the first card, I started with an A2 top folding white card base. After popping up an inside scalloped rectangle die, for a frame, I popped up the green cup in the center with more fun foam and double sided adhesive. On the top of the frame, I layered up the biggest holly leaves and coffee beans for a bit of embellishment. To finish this card off I stamped “Sending” on the bottom in bold black ink and “Hugs” on the inside of the card along with a few more coffee beans.

The second card I put together a bit differently. First, I adhered the frame, this time cut from kraft card stock, directly onto the A2 top folding white card base. After adding a halo of green ink into the center of the card base, I adhered the red cup with fun foam and double sided adhesive. As for the holly leaves, this time I used the smallest and adhered them to the top right corner of the cup. Finally, I stamped “thanks” in black bold ink on the bottom of the card. All of the sentiments I used were from the “Hello Sentiments” stamp set.

  1. Your cards are so fun and caffeinated-yay! I really like the monochromatic green on white card-so elegant. But I also like how bright and cheerful the red cup on the green background is!
    My favorite sets are the Coffee Christmas and Coffee Quotes.
