INTRODUCTION TO JOY CLAIR CLEAR STAMPS

 i am delighted and honored to have been chosen to join their design team and to work with their beautiful stamps.
their stamps are made here in the usa (georgia).
they are made of a high quality photopolymer, nice and thick, non yellowing, strong deep edges, they adhere so nice to the clear blocks and they take ink very well. 
their designs are unique and so very pretty and the fonts and sentiments are gorgeous.

joy clair has many plans for all of you to enjoy: challenges, videos, discounts and more. sign up to their newsletter and you won't miss any of it.

below is my first project to show off some of their great designs.
hope you enjoy it!

-A Halloween Frame-
by flowerdisco
hehe, let's start with a nice sneak peek.

i used my die cutter machine for the card base, layers and banner and worked
with 3 different stamp sets on this project:



i started stamping each "halloween" letter on a 1" piece of punched paper using different colors of pigment inks and then outlined each letter with a black permanent ink fine tip marker.

as you can see i distressed most of my cardstock too and later on you will see i "dry embossed" the black base.

as i mentioned before the polka dots banner was cut using my die cutter.
 i wrapped a fuzzy and thin green jute around it for an added detail.

the pumpkin and the boo word were stamped with a dye ink. i stamped the pumpkin first, did some fussy cutting around it and then stamped the boo word. i adhered it to the banner with some foam tape for dimension.

the skulls border to the right was stamped before i adhered the halloween letters keeping in mind their placement.


 the border has 4 joined skulls but i just had room for three of them.

 see the dry embossing on the black layer? it is a chevron shape but hard to see, sorry. i used a core-dination cardstock and after sanding it a nice orange color came through.

here is the finished halloween frame.
(i used a steel die to make a chipboard easel for the back to prop it up).

so what do you think of the stamps? really nice, huh?

you can click on the joy clair logo and it will take you the store where you can take a look at the rest of them.

see you next time and as always
