Joy Clair December Blog Hop

Hello Blogging Friends,

Today is the start of the Joy Clair December Blog Hop.

You should have arrived here from Martha's Blog.

If you should get lost along the way you can always go to the Joy Clair December Blog Hop and start over.

Here is the card I made:


Black ink
Copic markers
Crystal Stickles
Red, White & Green Bakers Twine
Jingle Bell Charm
Assorted paper from my stash
Gold pen

For this A2 card I started with red card stock for the base of the card.  I stamped the coffee cup from the Joy Clair Coffee Lovers stamp set onto white paper with black ink, colored the cup with Copic markers and then I stamped the JOY stamp from the Joy Clair Cozy Snowman Wishes stamp set, colored the O in red and then put some Crystal Stickles on it, when it was dry I fussy cut it out and put it on the side.  I took some white paper and stamped the Holly border from the Joy Clair Christmas Borders stamp set with black ink across the bottom of the paper, colored the holly and berries with Copic markers. I stamped another one of the border stamps across the top of the card and colored the stars in with a gold pen.  Next I attached the coffee cup to the bottom of the card.  I stamped the coffee word from the Joy Clair Coffee Lovers stamp set on the card with black ink several times. I cut out the Die-Versions Snow Flurries dies with some white glitter paper and added them to the top of the card. I took some Red, White & Green Bakers Twine and wrapped it around the card several times and I finished it by tying a Silver Jingle Bell charm to the twine.

Please be sure to check out all the wonderful creations the Joy Clair Design Team have made.
