Out of this World!

Hi again inky friends!  I'm back in a flash with another adoooorrrrable card featuring the new Out of This World stamp set from Joy Clair.  This was such a fun and easy card to create so get your Gelli Plate and your ink pads ready and let's have fun!  
To create the fun background, I swiped some ink (directly from the Memento dewdrop pad) to the Gelli Plate.  I laid my paper onto the inked plate and lifted up the impression.  I did this a few times with a couple different Memento colors and oh yeah...It ended up deeelish!  After that, I stamped a few stars and dots and added some sparkle washi for pizaaaaazzz...
I stamped the UFO with black Memento ink twice (once onto some leftover Gelli Printed paper and then once on white cardstock).  I paper pieced the green part of the paper onto the other UFO that I colored with colored pencils.  To finish the card off, I punched a few stars, added some twine and mounted the card onto some bright and alien-ish cardstock.  A little gold flicked here and there just made the card complete! 

Gettin' Ready for Spookfest!

Hello there inky friends!  I'm excited to share a fun little Halloween Card I created using the new October Fun stamp set from Joy Clair.  This is such an adorable set and I just love the little characters in this set.  It's perfect for those trick-or-treaters who love a fun costume!  
I decided to add a little scene and a few doodly embellishments to the TOO CUTE mummy in this set.  I created a boy and a girl mummy heading out for a night on the town!  Little Mr. Mummy has a spooky little mohawk and Little Miss Mummy is sportin' a big floppy ponytail!  Of course, they're leaving the cemetery so they have a few little tombstones to take care of before they head into town.  I think the bats also got the message there was something going on because they're ready and flappin! 
Not that spooky but oh so fun and playful!  Love this little scene!  :)

World Card Making Day with Joy Clair: Background Bonanza!

To get all the information about Joy Clair  WCMD 2017 CLICK HERE.
Hello there Joy Clair friends!  It's Kerry here!  How are you enjoying WCMD so far?  I am loving all the events, challenges and The Big Hop of the Design Team and Special Guest that we organized for you!  
When picking a challenge this year I went with an old favorite: background building.  I'm thrilled to share a fun project I created using the new Little Monster Set.  This is such a fun and POWERFUL stamp set and I wanted to incorporate as many sentiments as I could.  
I don't know about you, but I really have a problem cutting up my beautiful decorative printed paper.  I just can't seem to cut it up.  Sooo...because I'm a hoarder, I tend to resort to creating my own backgrounds instead.  That's just what I did with this stamp set!

I love the power of these sentiments in this set and thought it would be neat to create a wall...You know, the wall we sometimes build around ourselves that inevitably hinders our ability to be the best person HE created us to be?  You know, the person who needs that wall broken? 
I decided to focus on the sentiments by stacking them one by one (such a heavy load) on paper then did a bit of distressing.  The monsters arrived soon after to destroy everything.  The monsters...Yeah, they look cute but they're up to something more sinister!

I mean really, look at those innocent smiles and those sparkly eyes?  They'll get you if you're not careful!  So please, check yourself and be on guard!  They're always ready to pounce!

I hope something I made will inspire you to make some backgrounds of your own with stamps, stencils, dies, paint, or anything that makes you happy!  I can't wait to see your creative backgrounds take center stage on your lovely cards.  Make sure to add a link-up for your chance to win a stamp set from JC!!!  
Prize: One randomly chosen project that is linked up will win a stamp set from Joy Clair Store.
