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!
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.

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 :)
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 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.
