October Inspiration with Joy Clair Stamps 2nd Edition

Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here today with my second set of projects for the Joy Clair team. Have you ever had a stamp set just scream at you with how it wants to be used, and so you get started and while not knowing how it is going to turn out, you just let loose? Let me say that happened with this adorable set called Out of This World.

 From the beginning I knew the finished project was going to be a slider card with the rocket going from the Earth to the Moon, it can also spin around and come back.
 To make this project I used multiple colors of distress inks including Black Soot, Seedless Preserves, Wild Honey, Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers, layers upon layers. Once dry I splattered with a mixture of white acrylic ink and water.
The images were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.
I stamped the sentiment with Versamark and used Recollections Silver Embossing powder and my heat tool to finish it off.
I used a Lawn Fawn slider die to cut the track, and foam dots and a penny to complete the mechanism. I will make another soon, and video the process, I am sorry I did not think to film or photograph it this time.
I used double stick tape to adhere the elements, and with that this project was complete.

My next project today is using Christmas Coffee. This set is a favorite, as it can be used along with our Ugly Sweater background set to design the mug, as well as the image with this set.

I had fun with this image, first I stamped several impressions of the coffee mug with Memento Tuxedo Black in case of error while designing. 
After using the Scan n Cut to cut it out, I put figured out which of the two mug designs I wanted to use. After going through my background paper I found this paper pack from Recollections I purchased in 2015 and had not used yet, and the decision was made for the design.
Using an MFT die and my Big Shot I cut a 3" by 4" rectangle from the background paper, then using a Spellbinders die I cut the 4" by 5.25" rectangle from cardstock. I then used two cross stitched dome dies and cut out of green and white cardstock and mounted them together with double stick tape. I did have to trim the bottom of the green layer in order for proper fitting. 
For the coffee mug design I alternated Cottage Ivy and Lady Bug dew drop Inks from Memento in order to get a true pattern. Let me just say I used 4 of my cup cuts to finally get one I was really happy to use. 
I adhered everything down the way I wanted it on the A2 base and then positioned the Merry Christmas sentiment stamps (I really do love that they are separate stamps in this set) and then stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black. With that this project was complete. 

I I hope today's projects has given you some fun inspiration!!!
