Getting Creative With Joy Clair Stamps

Thank you all for stopping by today.  I'm excited to share this fun project with you that I created for Joy Clair Stamps  to showcase some of new Joy Clair Stamp Sets...and some of the old favorites.  I really enjoyed making the Pie Box Project I posted on April 2 as Joy Clair Stamps celebrates the Month of April with The Cutting Cafe and all their amazing cutting files.
I had originally planned on making one of the adorable boxes found in the Lip Balm/Chapstick Holder Set from The Cutting Cafe; but because I had some computer/printer problems this month (as I've been whining about lately...LOL) I decided on the Pie Box Project that I already had put together.  Subsequently, I ended up "piecing together" my own Chapstick holder with some of their cuts; but it's not 100% the Cutting Cafe version because I couldn't print all the pieces I needed.  Please...don't get me started on that awful printer again.  Anyway, here's a look at what I put together to share with you today using my fabulous Joy Clair Stamps.
The patterned papers and border stickers are from the Crate Paper Farmhouse line.  I did some machine stitching, added a tiny rusty paper clip, and some natural burlap string.  The words/sentiments on my card (Hosanna and the longer sentiment) are found in the new Hosanna Stamp Set, and the longer sentiment was stamped onto a piece of vellum and laid over the calico patterned paper.  I stamped the feathers in Marmalade, Broken Glass, Brick Red, and Green Grass Tim Holtz Distress Inks.
The word (Hello) that I hung on a tag from my Chapstick holder is from the Easter Greetings Stamp Set.  I just adore all the little sentiments in each set, and I use them often.  Then, I made a matching card using two sentiments and the large feather from the gorgeous new Hosanna Stamp Set; as well as a smaller feather found in the new Unashamed Stamp Set.  All of the stamps found at Joy Clair work together to compliment one another so well; and this helps you to make the very most of your stamp purchases.
How much do you LOVE these gorgeous Joy Clair Stamps?  I hope you enjoy them as much as I (and all my teammates) do, and that you will treat yourself to something new.  We're always here to help if you have any questions.

Thanks for stopping by!
