Joy's Life Design Team Thursday - Mr & Mrs

Joy's Life Design Team Thursday featuring Joy's Life Everyday Occasions Clear Stamp Set.

I am so in love with Joy's new stamp sets!!  These are a must have in your "go-to" stamp collection.  I don't know about you, but I have a few stamp sets that I always leave out that have basic sentiments so I can crank out a card a the last minute.  I really love how these new stamps mix font styles and the greetings are larger.  This allows you to make a statement with the sentiment.  That is what I did with the "congratulations" sentiment on this card.  I stamped it multiple times in VersaMark and set it with clear embossing powder to create a subtle background for the MR & MRS die cut letters.  I apologize that the photo is not that great as I was trying to get the light to catch the embossed areas.  I think you get the idea though!!

Joy's Life Design Team Thursday - Pirate Greetings

Joy's Life Design Team Thursday featuring Joy's Life You're So Punny Clear Stamp Set.

Today's card was inspired by this new cartoon on the Disney channel called Jake and the Neverland Pirates.  Wow...how an adult's TV watching habits change after having kids!! Anyway...there is this cute little skull & crossbones icon on the boat flag and gold coins that I just had to make and pair with Joy's "Ahoy Matey" stamp.  I actually found a skull that looked like the one from the show in the new Lettering Delights Rockstar SVG Set.  I modified it slightly in MTC by removing the nose and making one eye socket larger than the other.  I also created a drop shadow layer for the cut in MTC and used by Cougar to cut out each layer.  I created the red and white background paper by using VersaMark to stamp the Hero Arts Stripes Pattern background image on red paper and embossed with white embossing powder.  I layered everything together on the card base using pop dots.  This card was created in under 10 minutes and I was able to use up some more of my scrap paper!


I hope you enjoyed this card.  Be sure to check out the other design team creations by visiting Joy's Life.

Every 2nd Counts - Congratulations!

This is my 2nd card for this week's color challenge for the Summer Card Camp hosted by Jennifer McGuire and Kristina Werner!


Here is a reminder of the colors we are challenged to create with:


Looking at these bright colors remind me of all my 9 month old daughter's toys.  So pulling from that inspiration, I made this E2C card that can be used for a gender neutral baby card or adoption card.  The diecut image is from Lettering Delights Let's Play SVG Set.  I cut each section out in the colors based on the challenge and assembled the xylophone image.  I also added a touch of  Ranger's Glossy Accents to the bolts and mallet ends to make them shine.



Supplies:
Card Base - Blue Dot Paper Shop White | Card measures 4.25" x 5.5"
Sentiment - Cloud 9 Design Baby Clear Stamp Set
Diecut Image - Lettering Delights Let's Play SVG Set
