Hello crafty readers and happy 1st of December!  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 December 2021 Joy Clair Designs mood board:

This month’s mood board was inspired by the magic, warmth and wonder of the holiday season with pops of colors in turquoise, purple, magenta and white.  It’s cheerful, whimsical and magical!  Maybe this will inspire you to create for Christmas, Hannukah, winter or simply let these colors inspire you to create for any occasion.

Here is a card that Design Team member Crystal Komara created inspired by this month’s colors:

Card details: 

The base of this A2 size card was made using 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock.  The first base was created using a Gina Marie Designs Scalloped Rectangle die and cut from white cardstock.  In the bottom lower right corner of the card, Crystal stamped the sentiment “warmest wishes” in blue ink.  Crystal created a background from Faded Denim and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide inks.  She printed the images from the Christmas Cocoa digital stamp set and colored in the two mugs using Copic markers.  She added the mugs to the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension.  She also added the white foam cream and marshmallows to the card using 3M foam adhesive.  Lastly, she added a coat of clear Wink of Stella to all the images 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!
