Hello Everyone!! Today I am sharing how to use MISTI’s Creative Corners with your Joy Clair Stamps. It’s no secret I love my MISTIs, both the mini and the original sizes, and I didn’t think it could get much better. That was before I introduced the Creative Corners into my crafty arsenal. One of my favorite techniques is to create my own backgrounds and patterned paper. With this simple tool, that became 100 times easier, especially adding angles to the stamping! So for my cards, I do have three, I wanted to share with you just a few ways this tool, along with your Joy Clair Stamps, can be used to create some awesome backgrounds and patterned papers for your cards and projects! Be sure and watch the full video tutorial below for all the details.
The first card I kept really simple, but I have been wanting to make this card ever since receiving the Refuel My Soul stamp set. My FIL bought an old bug JUST like this and has since fixed it up. He often takes my kiddos on rides and I just couldn’t wait to make a birthday card for him with it. His birthday isn’t for awhile, but again, I just HAD to make this card! It’s super simple and masculine, and I absolutely love using stamp sets in unexpected ways! And of course I couldn’t leave the inside blank, so I finished it off as well!
My second card was a little more in depth, with die cutting and some alcohol marker coloring, but with the help of my MISTI and Creative Corners, the background and stamping all of my images in just the right position was a snap! The Best Buds stamp set is so incredibly cute and you can customize any friendship card with all the critters included in this set! I also decorated the inside of this card as well!
My third and final card(s) are exactly the same, just different color combos to go with the gender of new babies. The onesie in this set is the perfect image to make the focal point of your card, but I used it, stamped in different colors of dye ink to make a fun background. After creating a quick frame and attaching a Congratulations banner, these quick and easy cards were done!
