Joy Clair's Flamingo Bible Page

Hello, Joy Clair friends!!! Today I am super excited to share one of the latest Bible pages. I could not wait to get to work with the Color by Faith's Be a Flamingo stamp set! I did have a hard time deciding which one to work with first...flamingos or the pineapple. Flamingos it was!

Here is my page using the Color by Faith's Be a Flamingo set:


To start this page, I stamped the flamingos at the bottom of the page. I did use the masking technique on the two flamingos on the right side of the page. In doing this technique, it gives the illusion that one flamingo is standing behind another one. 

I used Prima Watercolors to color in that scene. I used a pink for the flamingos. A tan for the beach. A dark blue for the ocean water and a lighter blue for the sky.  Once the watercolor was dry, I stamped a variety of the word stamps from the Flamingo stamp set.

No Line It's Your Birthday

Happy Friday, MarkerPOP friends! Who is ready for the weekend? I know that I am! It is the last weekend before the kiddos go back to school! And this mama is ready to get back to a regular schedule!!!

Today, I am sharing a birthday card I created using the No-Line Coloring technique:


To start this card, I stamped the large birthday sentiment from the Waffle Flower's Eat Cake stamp set. The stamp is done with a light colored ink onto watercolor cardstock.  I really wanted the sentiment to pop, so I used a variety of neon Zig Clean Color markers to color in the image. I completed the image with the rainbow effect.


This is simply technique to do. All you need to do is take you time and follow the lines!!!

The following ZIG Clean Colors were used on today's card:
001, 002, 003, 004

Here is my latest Bible Journaling Page:


When I first saw this stamp set and some of the fonts used, I was reminded of a chalkboard. I decided to create the chalkboard look using black cardstock and white ink. I cut down a piece of cardstock to fit the margins of the Bible. Each stamped image is done with white ink. Once the images are stamped I lightly smudged each one to spread the ink. The last step is to run the white ink pad around the edges. 

Remember that we always have prizes for our readers and visitors that comment HERE in our corporate blog and in ALL designers blog.

Happy Trails

Hello, MarkerPOP friends! The summer is coming to an end! School has either begun or about to begin. Why not try to fit in one last vacation or getaway? My family keeps hinting that they want to go camping. Now only if I had a camper to make that night stay easier!!!

Today I am showcasing the SugarPea Designs RV There Yet stamp set and Chameleons:


For this card, I used a variety of prints from the paper pad to paper-piece the camper. There were a few different pieces that were colored in with a few Chameleon markers. After adding a couple of the different word stamps from the set, there was some white space in one corner. I decided to cut out one of the teepee and fire and attach to the card.


The following Chameleon markers were used on today's card: 

YL2, OR4, RD2

Sending Birthday Wishes

Hello, MarkerPOP. What is on your bucket list? I have been thinking about mine lately and keep adding to it! One thing is to take a hot air balloon ride. Have you ever been on one? I would love to...I think...not a fan of heights!

With hot air balloons on the mind, I figure I needed to create a card using the Waffle Flower's Across the Miles and Chameleon markers:


To begin this card, I stamped the balloon image onto white cardstock and colored in with a variety of Chameleon markers. The image is cut out and set aside. I wanted to add blue to the background of the card. I recently received the NUVO Embellishment Mousse and wanted to find a way to use it. I applied the cream to the card and blended it around using a baby wipe.


Once the background dried, I stamped the cloud images in grey ink. The hot air balloon is attached using foam tape. The sentiment banner is stamped at the bottom of the card with grey ink. The sentiment is stamped in black ink.



The following Chameleon markers were used on today's card:
BG4, PR4, PK3, YO3, OR4, BR2, BR4

Joy Clair - Embossing and Bible Journaling

Hello, Joy Clair friends! Today I am excited to share my latest Bible page with you. I have tried to using embossing powder on a page before. My gun ended up getting too hot and turning the page brown. So I spent some time trying to figure out how to work my gun with the thin pages in the Bible. I believe that I finally figured it out and love how this page turned out!

Today I am showcasing the adorable Color by Faith's Be Brave stamp set:


When I start a page, I like to begin with positioning the stamps to get an idea of what I want the page to look like. Once this is done, it allows me a better idea of where to put my paint. The larger painted areas and for the different phrases. The paint lines are were the different arrows will be stamped.


Now it is time to stamp and emboss! One by one, I stamp the images on top of the painted area. Right away, I add the embossing powder and heat with the heat gun. (I let my gun heat up before I aim it towards the page. Once I move to the page, I move the gun in a circle motion to hit the entire embossed area.) I repeat this process until all the images are complete.


To finish the page, I added some paint swatches of gold.

Howdy, Howdy, Howdy

Hello, MarkerPOP friends! Cactus are very popular right now. I don't know about you, but I cannot get enough of them. I have plenty stamps and papers covered with them! Why not add more to?!?

Today I am pairing up the Stamping Bella's SG Cactus and Echo Park's Just Be You paper pad:


I stamped the cactus onto light green paper from the 6x6 paper pad. I used a few different shades of green Chameleon markers to color in the image. The cactus are cut out and set aside. I used a few different prints, layered on the card base to start this card. To make the cactus pop, I added a circle die cut from the starry print from the paper pad.


To finish the card, I used the stamp 'Howdy' from the SG Cactus stamp set and repeatedly stamped across a printed strip of paper. This strip is then attached to the card using my Scotch glue tape.

The following Chameleon markers were used on today's card: GR2, GR4, CB

Joy Clair August Challenge

Happy August, everyone! It is the first...which means that it is the beginning of a new challenge on the Joy Clair blog! We had so many people join in last month and are looking forward to see who all joins in this month!

This month's challenge is:

Agosto Challenge - Layers

I used the Sunflower stamp set for my challenge card.


I stamped the images onto kraft cardstock. The images are colored in using colored pencils. I love the look of color popping of the kraft cardstock. (I just need to work on my coloring skills.)
