Swirly Birds

Did you all have a fab weekend ??

We enjoyed a sunny Saturday and a dull and cold Sunday here in Bucks,  but I had a great crafting weekend !!  Made a scrapbook page on Saturday and decorated a photo frame on Sunday !!

I see I have a few new fab followers !!  Whoohoo !! Thanks so much for joining me !!

Anyway I have two more cards to show you using this months Little Claire club stamp set called 

I decided to make a get well card using the single heart stamp. The heart makes a fab background  which is what I have done on the base card.  Lots of matts and layers and four super huge pearls to finish off.

In contrast, the bird cage and birds stamp make a lovely Birthday card

A punched border and liquid pearls really finish this one  off nicely.

I have to say again I am sorry about the poor photo's, BUT my lovely brother bought me a new camera for christmas and Royal Mail have LOST IT !!  We have had soooo much trouble over this and its still not sorted, so I'm having to still use my poor old camera !!

Henny Penny

 Morning peeps, 

  Here's a cute Little Claire friday project for you using "Henny Penny"

 Corner bookmarks are quick and easy to make and a fab way of using up scraps of patterened paper !!

You will need:
Henny Penny stamp
white card
patterened paper
border punch
3 1/2" circle die/punch
1 pearl gem
wet glue
double sided tape

  1. Cut a piece of white card 4"x 4"  and mark the centre point on 3 sides, Score and fold back.

 2. With a border punch, punch bottom edge and then cover front with strips of patterened paper and add some faux stitching.

 3.  Now stamp Henny Penny onto a piece of white card and cut out. Also die cut a white 3 1/2"circle and a white square 2 3/4" cut in half. (you will only need one half)

 4. Paper piece Henny Penny with patterened paper, I have used Papermania's "Burleigh Blue" . Add faux stitching round white circle and cover triangle with paptterned paper.

4. Wrap a piece of ribbon round front and tape down on back of bookmark. Also stick triangle onto back at top to close bookmark top. Then cover ribbon and back with strips of patteren paper.

 5. Now glue white circle onto front and then Henny Penny on top of that. Finish by knotting a small piece of ribbon to left side and adding a small pearl gem to Henny Penny's bow front.

And here's another one using a different combination of the same paper.

 Why not brighten someones day by making and giving one as a surprise gift !!
