Hello crafty readers and happy April!   The Design Team at Joy Clair Designs is excited to share the mood board for this month.  Mood boards (also commonly called “inspiration” boards) are a combination of colors, images, textures and patterns that can offer guidance or direction.  If you feel like you don’t know where to begin a project, try looking at a mood board and let the creative juices flow.  You might just be surprised by the end result! Let’s take a look at the April 2022 Joy Clair Designs mood board: This month’s mood board is inspired by all things pink, fuchsia, rose, blush, purple and magenta!  It’s dreamy and magical.  It’s beautiful and elegant. Here is a card that Design Team member Crystal Komara created after being inspired by these colors: Card details:  The base of this A2 sized card is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock.  I cut a 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ piece of the same white cardstock for the first matted background.  I ran this cardstock through my Big Shot using a linen printed embossing folder to give the paper some added texture.  I printed out the Mandala Love digital stamp set on Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock.  I colored one of the mandala’s using Copic markers in the colors of this month’s mood board.  I fussy cut the entire mandala and then cut the mandala in half.  I placed one half of the mandala at the top left of the card and the other half at the bottom right.  Then I die cut a bunch of different sized stars from purple and pink cardstock and glitter paper.  I added the stars randomly over the card.  I added a sentiment strip on the lower right side of the card.  Lastly, I added a coat of Clear Wink of Stella to the mandala image for added sparkle. We would love to see YOU create using this mood board as inspiration too!  Feel free to use similar colors in whatever brand of cardstock you have readily available.  We’d love for you to use your Joy Clair Designs stamps if you have them!  And if you don’t have any yet CLICK HERE TO START SHOPPING TODAY!
