Hello Everyone! I am so excited to be here on the blog with you today sharing two new projects and two new video tutorials!! I will be using two of the newer stamp sets from Joy Clair – Born is the King & Jesus is My Jam – on my projects today. They are both from the Color by Faith Line, however, I always like to share how you can use your Bible Journaling stamp sets not only for your journaling, but in cardmaking as well! You can watch the video tutorial below to see how I used the Born is the King Stamp Set to create a quite & simple, but elegant Christmas card! Also, I wanted to do a little journaling with the Jesus is My Jam Stamp Set, which you can also watch below, but be on the look out, because I have some plans for cardmaking with this set as well!
The card I made today with the new Born is the King Stamp Set was so quick and easy, but I love the simple elegance. It would be super easy to make multiples of this card for a gift set this Holiday season or even to give away yourself! I started with two A2 sized panels made from white & kraft card stocks. Using a fun border die, I cut the bottom edge to create a nice sloped border. In order to make the kraft fit the white panel as a mat, I pushed the kraft mat slightly up before I cut- be sure and watch the video tutorial to see exactly how I did this, as it’s much easier to show this process! Onto the white panel I stamped the ” Glory to the Highest” sentiment and heat embossed in Gold Twinkle embossing powder. I did this twice with the help of my MISTI to make the sentiment nice and bold! Any of the scripty sentiments in this set would be perfect for this design, so you could easily switch it out to your favorite or switch it up every time for a great gift set! Underneath the sentiment I added the two open leaf vines included in the set and heat embossed with clear embossing powder over green dye ink. Be sure to watch the video to see this super simple technique in action!!
For the background of this card I worked and stamped straight onto the A2 top folding white card base. I first stamped the solid leaf stamps included in this set in green dye ink all over the card base. Then, with a red alcohol marker I added different sizes of red dots to create the look of berries. I finished off the berries with a layer of red Nuvo Crystal Drops for some nice dimension, but be sure to wait until the very end to do this! To finish this card was very simple. I adhered the raft mat to the white sentiment panel and popped both up onto the card base with dimensional adhesive. I finally added the little dove, which I stamped and fussy cut, to the left side of the sentiment with more dimensional adhesive for the finishing touch!
The card was so simple and easy to make , but this next journaling page is also VERY simple!! I have sooo many ideas for this stamp set, but I wanted to journal with it first, so I turned to Psalm 95: 1-7. I started with the little sound bars, and using black dye ink, stamped them repeatedly down the left side of the verses until they reached from the top to the bottom. Then, on the bottom of the page I stamped the “Jesus is my Rock how I Roll” sentiment on it’s side. Each of these elements I colored in with my colored pencils in colors that matched the inks I chose. I also stamped the little music note above the sound bars and colored those in as well.
With such a simple layout, I wanted to add a little bit of a more busy and bright border. To do so I used the record in the stamp set and stamping only half of it onto the sides of the page created a super fun border! For my inks I chose very bright bold colors in purple, pink & orange, but you can get really creative here and use what speaks to you!
I hope you all enjoyed today’s projects & video tutorials! If you are interested in the Joy Clair Sets I used today, I have linked them down below!! Until next time, Happy Crafting Everyone!!
