Celebrate Mardi Gras With Joy Clair

Welcome by my blog today, friends!  I'm celebrating Mardi Gras with my friends at Joy Clair Stamps featuring a darling new stamp set called Be Unashamed.  This fun new set contains two different Mardi Gras masks, several decorative stamps, and sentiments as well.  You will see SO much wonderful inspiration from the talented Joy Clair Design Team by following the links.  Let's get started.

For this special event, I decided to celebrate Mardi Gras by making a smaller version of a traditional Mardi Gras mask.  I painted a cardboard scrap with a light silver acrylic paint and let it dry.  Next, I stamped the masks and banners from the Unashamed Stamp Set in deep blue ink, cut them out, and added lots of beautiful chunky glitter.   I put one of the masks onto a silver paper straw using hot glue and attached the decorative banners to the mask.  I added some sequins and sprinkles to give it some extra pizzazz.  It's a fun little Mardi Gras decoration.
The other mask was decorated much the same; but I created a gift tag that I inked and stamped with the sentiment God Will Reveal which is also found in the Unashamed Stamp Set.  I just love all the possibilities that exist with this stamp set.  You'll see what I mean when you visit each team members' blog.
Such fun stamps!  Joy Clair is filled with exciting stamps to help you run wild with your creative imagination.  We sure hope that YOU will pick up this fabulous new Be Unashamed Stamp Set and celebrate Mardi Gras with us at Joy Clair Stamps.  One lucky person who finishes this fun Mardis Gras Blog Hop will win a $20 Joy Clair Gift Certificate.  Happy hopping!
