OH WHAT FUN... welcome to the Celebration Collaboration of Joy Clair, Die-Versions and DL.ART. This project was so fun, and I am so excited to share it with you...

The stamp set used is Joy Clair "OH BABY", the Hot Air Balloon die is from Die-Versions and the ribbon used as clouds is from DL.ART's Baby Bundle. So, I made this card, and was so happy with it, then remembered... I wanted to make it a shaker card. So after a little cardmaking surgery...

We now have a shaker card. I really hope you all enjoy my card.
After sitting here looking at things I decided I wanted to add another project, and I worked on this cute (in my opinion) little note card.
Using the flowers from a Joy Clair set released this month called Prayer Words, the sentiment from Joy Clair's April Showers set. The white ribbon from DL.ART and cutting the sentiment with the Nesting Frame 1 Whispers set from Die-Versions this all came together.
First I used my Stampoholic Nano to position the images and stamp with VersaMark ink. I used Whispers White embossing powder and heat set it. I then used my Gansai Tambi watercolors to take care of the coloring of the flowers and Tim Holtz Distress Inks on the background. Added this panel to a card base and the project was complete.

I am the end of the blog this time around. 

If you became lost along the way please go back to the Die-Versions Blog and the whole list for each day will be listed there.

Now here is the list of today's blogs with their links!!
Looks like I am the end of the hop. I hope you have enjoyed the Celebration Blog Hop!! Be sure to leave comments on on all the blogs for a chance at winning one of the many prizes!

Thanks for stopping by!!

Joy Clair May Stamp Release Blog Hop

I have to admit this is probably the most favorite set we have this month for me. Maybe because my daughter and son in law announced to the world yesterday that they are expecting their second child in November. While I have known about this for almost 2 months now it has been hard not to blog and brag, especially because my whole cardmaking hobby started in 2014 when grandchild number 1 was on the way. One of the first cards I made was a Mommy-to-be card for my daughter. SO... needless to say I am excited. NOW, on what what I am supposed to be talking about. This adorable little stamp set from Joy Clair called "OH BABY"...
I am going to share two projects with you, because one just isn't enough. The first one I used the cute little baby in the umbrella along with the It's a Boy! The last 6 children born in our family have been boys, so this is only fitting. I colored the umbrella and baby with watercolor pencils and then covered the front with a sheet of velum. I really like this look on some cards, and for this one it seemed to fit.
 This one is just a cutie, little pea in the pod in my favorite color of green. Figuring since it is a gender neutral color this one is perfect when you do not know what gender the child is going to be. Hard to believe some do not want to know ahead of time, but it does happen. This little cutie pea was colored with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.

Please hop along and visit the rest of the design team members blogs, leave a comment on them all in order to enter to win one of the three $25 gift cards to the Joy Clair Shop.
