I'm just loving this new set from Little Claire. It includes 7 stamps and 2 sentiments for just £8.99. Here are a few cards I made with it:
I used Botanics paper and Card Candy from Craftwork Cards, ribbon from stash and added sparkle with Crafters Companion Irridescent Spray.
I inked and stamped the background card with Distress Ink, then stamped the butterflies in an oval shape. For the topper, I stamped and embossed the butterflies with white embossing powder and coloured the background with Brilliance ink. I added Glamour Dust for extra sparkle.
Again, I used Botanics paper, coloured the image with a Promarker and atyou Spica pens and added a sentiment from Cuddly Buddly.
Here is the new club set from Little Claire's. It includes 3 images and a circular sentiment.
For my first card, I used all of the stamps to create a garden scene ...
... and cut a slot to make a penny slider card.
This stamp set is so versatile. It can be used for many different card styles.
For my second card, I stamped the image with Distress inks and also made a backing paper by stamping the flowers all over with Versafine, heat embossing with clear embossing powder and colouring the background with the Distress ink.
I distressed watercolour card for the background with Distress inks and water, stamped a swirl (Little Claire) in Distress ink and Versamark and embossed it with Sheena Douglass Wow powder.
Finally, I embossed the edges with Sheea Douglass Wow powder. I love the sparkly look this powder adds :)
