Joy Clair New Release Blog Hop | Drink Tea, Read Books, Be Happy

Hello everyone… Today is an exciting day at Joy Clair… It is the New Release Day!!! Let’s grab your favorite drink and hop along to see the inspiration projects from the team featuring the new stamp sets.

Today, you all can check and grab the October New Release Stamp Sets at Joy Clair store. And I am sharing this card featuring the new Tea Time stamp set!

I created the background using the Broken Brick Background Stamp and using my Gelli Arts Plate with acrylic paint. After I printed the brick background, I added some Distress Ink Vintage Photo and Spiced Marmalade Ink using the make up sponge and splatter some water. It make the background looked aged. I added some white splatters using brush and white acrylic paint. I dried the whole panel with craft heater and I added it on the card with adhesive glue.

I stamped the stacked books and tea cup on a watercolor paper with VersaFine Onyx Black using Mini MISTI. And then I colored them using Leisure Arts Watercolored Pencils. I used small round waterbrush to pull the colors. I dried the images with craft heater and fussy cut them with micro-tip scissors. I added the books on the card with adhesive glue and I added the cup on top of the book with 3D Foam Tape.

I stamped the sentiment with VersaFine Clair Pinecone Ink Pad with Mini MSITI, trimmed it into banner, and I added it on the top left corner card with 3D Foam Tape.
