Welcome to my crafty blog. It’s time for a new sketch challenge over at CAS Colours & Sketches, and I’m sharing my final contribution as a guest designer for the challenge. This month has gone so fast and it’s been such a great opportunity to be part of the CCAS team – huge thanks to… Read More fruit salad!
Welcome to my crafty blog. Just a quick share today as I’ve got a busy diary – I’ve gone back to one of my all-time favourite stamps from Clarity, ‘Tina’s floral spray’. I decided to go for a different look, keeping the flowers in relief and making the background the key focus for this one… Read More sunset flowers
Welcome to my crafty blog. This week’s foray into my Clarity new design club back catalogue took me to the daisies from January 2015 and my third year of club membership. I think these were probably the first set of outline and infill stamps I had encountered – but certainly not the last!! I was… Read More Claritystamp new design club lookback – daisies #99
Welcome to my crafty blog. I’m back with a second card today, inspired by Claritystamp’s very own Barbara Gray who hosted a ‘pyjama party’ yesterday evening as part of Clarity’s Open Day Festival (as we can’t all get together in person this year). Barbara did a fabulous card using the ‘butterfly wreath’ stamp set, and… Read More live life in colour
Welcome to my crafty blog. Under normal circumstances I’d have been down in Kent today at the Claritystamp Open Day, but our persistent friend Covid and it’s restrictions has put paid to that, so Clarity are having an online festival this weekend instead. I decided to have another play with the ‘riverside landscape reflection’ masks… Read More one day at a time
Welcome to my crafty blog and our new theme at the Alphabet Challenge. This time it’s the letter F, and Lynda has opted for ‘furry friends’ as the subject. This ‘birdhouse garden’ set from Claritystamp is one of my all-time favourites and I thought it was about time I got it out again. I’ve actually… Read More furry friends…?
Welcome to my crafty blog. I’ve got something a bit different to share with you today – I don’t normally leave my stamped images in black and white but I’ve used the challenge over at Global Design Project where this week’s project is to CASE (copy and selectively edit) the card designed by Emma. Part… Read More sending birthday wishes
Welcome to my crafty blog. I’m firmly back in my comfort zone with this CAS (clean and simple) card today, using the ‘oriental vine’ stencil from Claritystamp and the colours from Less is More. There is a bit of a twist to this card, though, that has stretched me as this week’s challenge from Just… Read More many happy returns
Welcome to my crafty blog. It’s time for a new challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches and we have a colour scheme this week, with some gorgeous summer shades. I’ve just acquired some brand new stamps designed by Marion Emberson for Julie Hickey Designs, that were only launched last week. I don’t know about you… Read More smile often
Welcome to my crafty blog. I’ve gone back to Stampin’ Up!’s ‘friends are like seashells’ set for today’s card, but this time made the starfish the star of the show (!) rather than the seashells. That might seem a bit odd, given that I’ve used the sketch and inspiration photo from Fusion Card Challenge where… Read More you’ve got a friend
