Joy Clair My Redeemer


 Hello Blogging Friends,


Today is the start of the Joy Clair My Redeemer Blog Hop


  PLUS we have a fun game for you to play for a chance at winning a $25 Gift Card to the Joy Clair Store!


Here is how you can play along with us!!


Each of the stops on the Joy Clair My Redeemer Blog Hop will have a key word in their post.  You will get the key word from each post and put it together into a sentence.  Then you will e-mail the sentence to me at ~ mulchlady@aol.com with the subject title My Redeemer in the e-mail subject line by March 19th ~ then a random winner will be picked from the correct  answers and the winner will be announced on the last day of the month on the Joy Clair Blog.


So why not play along with us!


For my project I used these Joy Clair stamp sets:



In God's Time, John 3:16  and the newly released My Redeemer.




Here is my creation for this blog hop:



Ingredients:

Quickutz Cloud border die
Black ink
 Spun Sugar distress ink
Evergreen Bough distress ink
Stormy Sky distress ink
Milled Lavender distress ink
Tumbled Glass distress ink
Squeezed Lemonade distress ink
Mustard Seed distress ink
Copic markers

For my project I decided to make a scrapbook page and journal about a difficult time that I went through where I almost lost my husband.  To me, it was a miracle that he lived through this and a hallelujah moment for me!

For my page I started by stamping hallelujah and the sun at the top of my page with black ink.  I took some Squeezed Lemonade and Mustard Seed distress inks and my blending tool and made the sun. Then I started making a rainbow across the top of my page (because a rainbow is a promise from God) by using my blending tool and some distress inks. I used a curved template to create each of the different colors of the rainbow.  Next I took the Quickutz Cloud border die and some white paper and I cut out the clouds and added that to the page.  Then I took the Joy Clair In God's Time stamp set and some black ink and I stamped the hour glass, time heals sentiment and the Saved by Love sentiment onto the page.  I colored in the hour glass and the sand with Copic markers.  Then, to get all that I wanted to say on my page, I did my journaling on the computer and printed it out onto some paper and added that to the page.

I think it is important to document our thankful moments so that we realize what we have and don't take the important loved ones in our lives for granted!


Here is the list of the stops on the Joy Clair My Redeemer Blog Hop:


Joy Clair
Martha Lucia Gomez Hernandez
Donna Green Idlet
Kerry Urbatch
Steph Ackerman
Lori Kobular ~ You are here!!
Lindsay Adreon
Helen Gullett
LeeAnn McKinney
Jessica Pascarella 

Please be sure to go to each blog post and collect the word from each post to put together your sentence!  You have until March 19th to make the sentence!!  You could be the lucky winner of the hop!


I hope you have had some fun hopping with us today!


Thanks for stopping by!

Scrapy Land Challenge #62



Hello Blogging Friends,


Today is the start of the Scrapy Land Challenge #62


The theme for this challenge is


Favorite Holiday ~

  Plus use any brand of low profile or steel ruled die Scrapy Land sells. 

(It can be any holiday that is celebrated throughout the year.)


My favorite holiday is Easter!  It is the rebirth of everything!  I love to see all the flowers and grass coming up and the birds coming back to our yard.  So I made an Easter card:



Ingredients:

Egg punch
CM Grass Border punch
Assorted papers from my stash

For this A2 Easter card I started with white card stock for the base of the card.  I cut a piece of the blue marble paper and attached that to the card.  Next I took some green paper and cut out the grass using my CM Grass border punch and then I attached the grass to the card. I cut out the Die-Versions Straw Basket twice, once with green paper and once with pink paper.  I inlaid the green pieces in the basket.  I cut out some eggs with my egg punch and different color papers and put them inside the basket and attached that to the card. I cut out the Impressions Obsessions Bunny dies and added them to the card.  Next I cut out the Lawn Fawn Spring Showers cloud dies and added them to the card.  I took the Avery Elle Party Bunny stamp set and stamped Hoppy Easter with black ink onto the card.

Be sure to stop by the Scrapy Land Blog to see all the awesome creations the Design Team have created.


Now it is your turn to make something for this Scrapy Land Challenge #62 

Please remember to:


~ include one or more die brands that Scrapy Land sells

This challenge closes on April 2 and the winner will receive a $15 Gift Card to the Scrapy Land Store.

Joy Clair Grow in Faith

Hello Blogging Friends,


This is my second post of the day.  I want to share a Tag that I made with the Joy Clair Grow in Faith stamp set and I am entering in the:


Tuesday Throwdown #334 Tags/Bookmarks Challenge


Here is my tag:



Ingredients:

Prima Tag
Black ink
Copic markers
Tumbled Glass distress ink
Stormy Skies distress ink
Mowed Lawn distress ink 
Dragonfly charm
Biscotti Perfect Pearls Spray
Glossy Accents

I started by stamping the Joy Clair Grow in Faith stamps with black ink onto the Prima Tag.  I colored everything with Copic markers.  I took the distress ink and rubbed it onto the tag with my blending tool and then I lightly sprayed the whole tag with Biscotti Perfect Pearls Spray.  When that dried I took some Glossy Accents and made it look like water coming out of the watering can.  When that was all dry.  I took the Dragonfly charm and the DL.ART Blue Hue Tail crinkle ribbon and tied a the charm on to the tag and made a bow.

Please be sure to check out all the great inspiration that the Tuesday Throwdown Design Team have created! 


I hope I have inspired you to create something fun today!


Thanks for stopping by!

Joy Clair Bandana Bits


Hello Blogging Friends,


Today I would like to share with you a card I made with the Joy Clair Bandana Bits stamp set.



I had so much fun coloring these stamps and thinking of all the ways I could used this fun stamp set.


Here is my card:



Ingredients:

Watercolor paper
Black ink 
Copic markers
Spun Sugar distress ink
Blue card stock

For this A2 card I started by taking a piece of watercolor paper and stamping the stamps from the Joy Clair Bandana Bits stamp set with black ink.  Then I colored in the images with Copic markers.  I took some Spun Sugar distress ink and inked the edges of the paper and also rubbed some of the ink around on the white paper so it wasn't completely a white background.  Then I glued that on to the blue card stock card base.  So what do you think?  Do you like my card?




Thanks for stopping by!
