New Challenge at Little Claires

The new challenge over at Little Claires is 'Shaped Cards'.  Here are my DT cards:

 Using elements of Blossom Fairy

Using Shep

This month's prize is fabulous:
I have both of these stamp sets and they are so versatile.

Enjoy what's left of your weekend!

My new Crafty Individuals stamps

Here are a couple of cards I made recently, using my new stamps from Crafty Individuals:

Both images were stamped onto smooth white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured with Promarkers.  Then I cut them out and before mounting, I sprayed them with Spray and Shine to give a glossy finish.  It makes them look like photographs!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend x

Workshop Cards

Just a quick post to share some lovely cards I made at Amy Shaw's workshop last Sunday. We used a Snowflake stamp set by Stampendous that was ours to keep - how cool is that?

The aim of the workshop was 'one stamp ... six ways' (yes, we made SIX cards in 2.5 hours!!!)

 Plain and simple stamping with a touch of Stickles.

 Stamping, a touch of Stickles and velum.

 Embossing with Kaleidascope embossing powder.

 Using Gilding Flakes.

 Triple embossing.

Alcohol ink background.

It was a fab workshop, made even more fabulous by a plentiful suppy of choccies and coffee ... cant wait for the next one!

Hope you've all had a lovely weekend xx

The First Little Claire Blog Hop!

Welcome to my Blog and welcome to Little Claire's first blog hop - let's hope we have many more :)

Here is a card I've made using one of the brand new Red Gingham stamps, Little Tammy:

The detail on the stamp is exquisite and it looks gorgeous when embossed.  The sentiment is also by Red Gingham and you can find it here.

My fellow DTs have more gorgeous cards to share with you, so make sure you visit them all and the lucky winner of the Blog Hop will receive a full set of the new designs!

This is what you need to do to take part in the blog hop:

Pink Petticoat does it again!

Here are some cards I made using a GORGEOUS new digi from Pink Petticoat:

The sentiment reads "Celebrate the season ... in style!"

I coloured the images with watercolour pencils, added sparkle with a Sakura pen and cut them out with my Nesties.  I stamped a gorgeous Inkadinkado flourish on the card base and used coordinating ribbon.  I didn't have any copper ribbon, so I coloured some white/black dotty ribbon.  Finally, I inked the edges of the die-cuts ... et voila ... a batch of beautiful girlie cards for my friends :)

Have a nice weekend x

New Tag cards at Little Claires

These new Tag Cards from Little Claires make a great alternative to a card.  They can be used whole - four panels - or cut in half - two panels - to make a smaller card, or even cut into individual tags.

Tag card 1

Tag Card 2

Tag Card 3

To decorate the cards, I used the First Edition Isabelle paper pack and Little Claire's beautiful new Little Beauties Tag Stamps.  I added pearls, gems and ribbon from my stash and used punches to make coordinating borders and embellishments.

Have a nice weekend folks xx
