Here are my projects for this blog hop:






Here is a Birthday Card I made:



Ingredients:

Joy Clair Paisley Bouquet stamp set
Imagine Crafts Fireworks Summer Sky
Imagine Crafts Fireworks Paris Dusk
Imagine Crafts Bahama Blue
Imagine Crafts Encore Ultimate Metallic Teal ink
Imagine VersaFine Onyx Black ink
Water color pencils
White card stock
Watercolor paper
Navy blue paper

For this card I started by taking a piece of watercolor paper and sprayed the Paris Dusk, Bahama Blue and the Summer Sky Fireworks Spray onto the paper and let it dry, the shimmer and shine doesn't show up real good in the photos, but let me tell you it is gorgeous!  I took a piece of Navy Blue paper and sprayed the Paris Dusk, Bahama Blue and Summer Sky Fireworks Spray onto the paper and let it dry, the nice thing about these Fireworks Sprays are they dry really quick!  Next I stamped the Joy Clair Paisley Bouquet stamp with Imagine Crafts VersaFine Onyx Black ink onto another piece of watercolor paper, then I colored the image in with water color pencils, I cut it down and mounted it on the Navy blue paper that I sprayed with the Fireworks.  I trimmed that done and attached that to the white watercolor paper that I had sprayed with the Fireworks.  Then I stamped the Happy Birthday stamp from the same Joy Clair stamp set with the Imagine Crafts Encore Ultimate Metallic Teal ink and then I mounted all of this onto a white card base.  You really have to try the Fireworks Sprays to see how much fun they are to work with!

Here is my first tag:



Ingredients:

Joy Clair Be Brave stamp set
Imagine Crafts Encore Ultimate Metallic Teal ink
Imagine Crafts VersaFine Deep Lagoon ink
Imagine Crafts VersaFine Onyx Black ink
Imagine Crafts Fireworks Spray Paris Dusk
Imagine Crafts Fireworks Spray Bahama Blue
Imagine Crafts Fireworks Spray Summer Sky
DL. ART Mermaids Tale Second Edition Blue Hue crinkle ribbon
Prima Marketing Julie Nutting Mixed Media Tag

For this tag I sprayed the tag with the Paris Dusk, Bahama Blue and Summer Sky Fireworks Spray and let it dry.  Once it was all dry I took the sentiment from the Joy Clair Be Brave stamp set and stamped that with the Imagine Crafts VersaFine Onyx Black ink.  I stamped the feathers from the Joy Clair Be Brave stamp set with the Metallic Teal and the Deep Lagoon ink.  Then I took the Deep Lagoon ink and inked the edges of the tag.  I took the DL.ART Mermaids Tale Second Edition Blue Hue crinkle ribbon and tied a bow around the tag.


Here is another tag that I made:


Ingredients:

Joy Clair Paper Tattoos stamp set
Joy Clair Anchor of Hope stamp set
Imagine Crafts Encore Ultimate Metallic Teal ink
Imagine Crafts VersaFine Onyx Black ink
Imagine Crafts Fireworks Spray Bahama Blue
Imagine Crafts Fireworks Spray Paris Dusk
Imagine Crafts Fireworks Spray Summer Sky
White pen
Anchor charm
Blue & White Bakers Twine
Tim Holtz Etcetra Tags

For this tag I sprayed the Bahama Blue, Paris Dusk and Summer Sky Fireworks sprays onto the tag.  When the tag was dry I stamped the Joy Clair Paper Tattoos anchor stamp with the Versafine Onyx Black ink onto to the tag.  I used the alphabet letters from the stamp set to stamp HOPE inside the ribbon around the anchor with the Ultimate Metallic Teal ink.  I colored in the rope on the anchor with a white pen.  I stamped the sentiment from the Joy Clair Anchor of Hope stamp set with the VersaFine Onyx Black ink onto the tag.  I stamped the bubble from the Joy Clair Anchor of Hope stamp set with the Imagine Crafts Encore Ultimate Metallic Teal ink.  I used the same Teal ink to ink the edges of this tag.  I took some Blue & White Bakers Twine and threaded the Anchor charm through the hole in the top of the tag.
