Joy Clair January Release Blog Hop

Welcome to the Joy Clair January Release Blog Hop! The design team has been working hard creating a variety of projects that are sure to spark your creativity juices! You should be arriving from the talented Martha’s blog. If you happened to join the hop in the middle, please start at the Joy Clair blog!

Joy Clair’s January release contains four everyday stamp sets and four stamp sets from their new bible journaling line, Color by Faith! All stamp sets will be on sale 25% off starting at 10:00am EST on January 19th. The entire bundle will be available for $80.00!
I am excited to be sharing my projects from the new sets:
Hedge Hogtastic
I chose to use markers that matched the patterned paper to color in the adorable hedgehog! A few enamel dots are attached to add some pretty shine to the card!
John 3:16
I am still trying to get comfortable with actually creating in my bible, hoping I will get over it and actually do bible journaling next month! But for now, I am creating in a notebook journal. For this page, I inked hearts in a variety of colors to make it look like God is pouring his love on everyone on Earth!
Love Tree
This is an adorable stamp set! Perfect for Valentine's Day cards! This CAS card is created with the stamps and a few crayons!
God’s Love
The image is stamped in brown to allow the words to really pop! The sun rays are colored in with crayons! Hint: Twistable crayons are easy to work with while during bible journaling!
Love Quotes
The galaxy background is created with a variety of watercolors. Once the paint dried, I splattered white paint onto the 'galaxy' background. The sentiment is embossed on the card with white powder. The moon is paper-pieced.
You & Me
I simply adorable my relationship with books! They bring me some much need relaxation! So in my weird mind, for some reason I thought about making a bookmark using this stamp set! I am thankful for the quiet time books provide me!
Designer Labels
I paper-pieced the tags and dress onto the notebook page. I added a strip of vellum with washi tape. On top of the vellum, I stamped the fun sentiment in white ink.
Now let’s talk about prizes! There will be THREE winners from the blog hop. Each winner will receive a stamp set of their choice from the new release!
