Before getting into the details of the card I wanted to take a minute to share some facts about Eating disorders, as that’s the point of this hop.
Eating Disorders are complex mental illnesses with physical manifestations. The myths and misconceptions surrounding these illnesses often serve to perpetuate the stigma that prevents so many folks from receiving life-saving support and treatment, so today we’re hopping along to raise awareness and hope for these very underserved (but prevalent) disorders.
Did you know? Many people with eating disorders don’t lose weight, and may actually gain weight as a result of their disorder.
To make this card, I started by stamping and coloring the largest image from Newtons Nook DesignsPeony Blooms stamp set. I used copics in the follow combination : V12-15-17 and YG 01-03-06. Then I fussy cut it or you can use the coordinating die.
Happy Saturday! Welcome to the Heffy Doodle and Honey Bee Stamps Collaboration Blog Hop! Make sure to scroll to the end to see all the other participants! For my card, I decided to step out of my comfort zone with some space themed stamps! I used some slimline dies from Honeybee stamps and paired it with space stamps from Heffy Doodle.
I stamped and colored all the images from Spaced Out Clear Stamps and colored them with copic markers, and die cut them using the coordinating dies. I layered the cloud border onto the slimline card base using foam tape for added dimension, and then scattered all the colored images around to create the scene. I adhered them with both liquid and foam tape to add more some dimension.

Hey y’all! Welcome back to the recently neglected blog! I’ve still been posting over at Joy Clair Designs and on my Instagram account, just haven’t had the time to blog each card I made! But I’m super excited to be back today to share a coffee (well tea!) themed card as part of National Coffee Day!
If you didn’t already come here from Joy Clair Designs blog, make sure to head over there, as they are giving away one gift card of $15 dollars of Joy Clair Designs Store (valid for stamps only) to a randomly chosen comment on the blog post.
Here’s the card I made for the hop! I used the Cup of Joy digital stamp set, and attempted a pastel look because I’m trying to hold on to summer!
I started by printing and coloring one of the images from the Cup of Joy digital stamp set using copic makers (colors listed below). Since I can’t figure out how to use my cricut, I just fussy cut the images, but I did die cut the sentiment with a banner die cause I cannot for the life in me draw a straight line!
To finish off the card, I used a piece of pattern paper die cut with a cover die, and adhered the tea cup image and sentiment using some foam tape.

Im so excited to share with y’all that I’m on the Joy Clair Designs 2020-2021 design team! Thank you Martha for this lovely opportunity, and for believing in my talent. That being said, it’s time to share the August 2020 digital stamps release with y’all! Let’s start with a sneak peak at some of the cards you will see when you hop along, stay tuned for more details on that!
If you follow me on Instagram then you probably know that I am huge on making layered cards, the more the merrier! But I am not a fan of fussy cutting intricate images, and since I was working with digital stamps, and haven’t learnt how to use my cricut to cut them, I decided to try and create a one layer card, which is quite a challenge for me!
For the first card, I took one of the floral images from the Floral Friends stamp set and created a card front on picmonkey, printing it out in an A2 size (on A4 paper, trimming it down after printing). I colored the images using my copic markers and foiled the sentiment. That’s it! I was tempted to add embellishments, as I usually do.
For the second card, I used the same images from the Floral Friends stamp set, this time fussy cutting after coloring. To assemble the card, I ink blended the front of a A2 card with some yellow ink, then added a lattice cover die for some depth. Finally I added the sentiment and floral images using foam tape for added dimension.
What’s your card making style? Layered or CAS?
