The theme for the challenge over at Clarity Stamp Challenge blog this month is Winter so I decided to create this snowglobe card, I made my own stencil for the snowglobe from a file cover.
I wrote instructions in order to put it on a site I belong to called Instructables, you can see them here.I would love it if you went and voted for me in the competition over there (you have to become a member to vote but that is free) There are all sorts of instructables on that site, just check it out – not only crafty stuff but pretty much anything you can imagine!
I used the Re mountable Winter Wonderland clear stamp set and the 21 Remountable Winter Trees Clear Stamp Set along with Chipped Sapphire and Vintage Photo Distress ink
It my Hubbies birthday today and I made him a card with my new Clarity stamp shape set, its the first time I tried making the clouds in the sky so it took me 3 attempts to get it how I wanted it but I am very pleased with the results.
This week on the blog over at SplodgeAway every one has been showing off a project of their choice with no particular theme in mind so here is the card that I made using the Celtic framer mask, I sponged glue through the mask and applied silky glitter to it (from creative expressions but I can’t remember the correct name)
I am really excited as I have received my DT package to prepare for the next Create and Craft show on August 27th. While I obviously can’t show you what is in it I can tell you that I am pretty sure you are going to LOVE the products I know I do
Hi everyone, I hope we are all enjoying the sunshine, I know we are here. This week over on the SplodgeAway blog the theme is Summer Loving, I knew exactly what I was going to create as soon as I knew this. I have been to a demo at the Papeterie in Aberdeen by the brilliant Sue Wilson and she created a card similar to this so that is where my inspiration came from.
I had a couple of pieces of card left over from another project but not enough to create a complete background so I cut triangular strips and created the rays. I used the Psychedelic mask set and some wild honey distress ink on the Easy Ink card to create the paper originally.
Hop on over to the blog to see what the rest of the crew have in store for you this week.
This week over on the SplodgeAway blog is SplodgeAway mat week and my fellow DT members are showcasing their use of the mat. I have my mat out pretty much all the time as there aren’t many things that I don’t use it for, it is just so versatile and helps you blend in so well. Here is a card I have made for my Sister in Law’s birthday (its ok, she doesnt read my blog – well not that I know of anyway!) I used my mat to brayer the background and then I used the blending tool and the mat to blend the inks on the topper. All the stamps except for the greeting are from Clarity Stamp Company.
Here are the other 2 things I made using the decorative diamond stamp from Oak House Studios for the One Stamp Project. For these two projects I used shrink plastic.
I used the stamp to make the kite for the wee boy to fly
I have saved the best until last in my opinion, I really love how this jewelry set came out and plan to run a class on how to make it at Cullen Crafts.
I was asked by Lynnda at Oak House Studio to take part in their One Stamp Project, and here are a couple of the things I came up with using the one stamp – Decorative Diamond Stamp
A Pentagon shaped box made by creating a star with the stamp
A Frame made with the stamp embossed with WOW gold embossing powder
Tune in for more tomorrow 🙂
Its time for another sketch over at Friday Sketch Challenge blog:
This fortnight we are sponsored by Noor design, so pop over and have a go.
I have been having yet another play with February’s Clarity Design Club stamp. This one was stamped with Versamark and then had Mica powder applied. I then cut up the squares and cut out the circle part and assembled them back together to give the 2 toned look to each corner.
