Hello crafty readers!  My name is Crystal Komara and I am one of the new DT members.  I couldn’t be more excited to join Martha’s amazing team of talented crafters as we share and inspire you with the beautiful stamps and products from Joy Clair Designs.  Floral images are among my favorites when it comes to stamping and today I’m sharing my first design using the Spring Rose digital stamp set from the most recent Ray of Sunshine release.

This A2 sized card is made from a base of 80 lb. Neenah Solar White smooth cardstock.  Using the Lawn Fawn quilted die, I die cut the background also from Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock.  I printed one of the roses from the Spring Rose stamp set using an inkjet printer onto Neenah white cardstock.  I colored the image with Copic markers using Y04, Y06 and Y08 for the flower bloom and YG11 and YG 13 for the stem and leaves.

I fussy cut the flower and then adhered it to the white quilted background using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension.  I printed the sentiment “today is your day” from the same Spring Rose digital stamp set.  I notched the left edge of the sentiment before adhering the sentiment strip over the rose.  I always add a little extra dimension with small white dots from a Uniball White Gel pen.  Lastly, I added a coat of clear Wink of Stella to the flower for added sparkle.

I hope you have enjoyed my first card for the Joy Clair Design Team!  You can always find me on my website, Facebook or Instagram!  Thank you for visiting and happy crafting!

XO, Crystal
