Coffee loving with Joy Clair...

Woo Hoo!!!  The hop is HERE!  I'm excited to be hopping along again and have so much to share this week.  My first share is this fun card created using a fun little sentiment from Joy Clair.  The sentiment comes from the Coffee Quotes stamp set.  It's a great collection of quotes that work perfectly as stand-alone sentiments or as embellishing elements on any crafty project.  

I created this card by first applying some watercolor splats using a sheet of acetate.  I just applied some watercolor on the acetate and then laid my paper onto that.  After that, I splattered some watercolor using my brush and my finger.  I stamped the sentiment then watercolored with some watercolor pencils.  
Did you know that Joy Clair is a Super Sponsor of the hop?  Yes, and as a Joy Clair DT member, I get to share in the excitement by hopping along and featuring some amazing stamp sets this week. Throughout the week, I'll be sharing several Joy Clair creations and I hope you enjoy.  Joy Clair will be awarding one lucky HOP participant a $25 gift certificate to their online shop!  Make sure to hop along and comment away for your chance to win!

I like to add some machine stitching to my cards so I just did a meandering stitch over and over using some white thread.  I think it gives the card a bit more to talk about...Helps it along a bit.  The little piece of Rinea Foil added a bit of whimsy and allowed me to apply some star punches for embellishments.  I added a little bronze ink splatter too.

Mounting the stamped panel onto some coordinating cardstock was the finishing touch before attaching it to a white (topfold) card base.   I had such a fun time creating this card!  I hope you like it!
