Christmas In White

which would be lovely if we didn't have to go anywhere...

Soooooo "Christmas In White" is our next Little Claire Stamp challenge for you !!

  I've used LC "Swirly Whirlies Cats" on my Christmas in White take.

 Stamped the cats, then coloured and fussy cut them out and mounted onto the card using 3D foam tape. Die cut some trees and embossed them with christmas greeting and glittered using stickles. Added some torn strips of card to create snow drifts and again glittered edges with stickles. Die cut the sentiment and some frantage for snow, finished off with ribbon bow, a few gems and die cut snowflakes.

Just look at this fab bundle prize up for grabs....

A selection of snowy papers
Little Claire Robin & Snowdrop stamp

The Bees Knees stamp set

Loads of fun to be had with creating scenes and backgrounds with the smaller stamps too like I have with the next card !!  Mounted the main image panel using 3d foam tape and decoupaged the three main butterflies.

Use Plaid

Oh my word what a wet weekend we have why not cheer yourself up and join in the mousey fun at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge !! This fortnights theme was chosen by Beth which is

"Use Plaid"

For my take I've used green plaid and " Sing A Song " mousey fun stamp.

 Used quiet a few dies to cut flowers,  corners,  leafy bits and words.  Coloured with my usual Spectrum Noirs pens.  Also inked and drew my usual wobbly lines round the edges.

Amanda and her birdy friend which I tried to make look like a thrush (not sure if I succeeded) really are singing out their hearts to welcome in the sunshine which of course we didn't see.......just adore purples and green together !!

Wednesday 4 November 2015


Didn't know what I was going to do for Jo's Halloween theme atc swap....but them I came up with these" Mummy" ones !!   I tore up strips of white card and inked the edges,   coloured a small area on my white atc black and stuck two googly eyes then wrapped the strips of white card around the whole of the atc for the bandages.   Finished off by drawing a spider with a fine line black pen.

 If you fancy having a play then why not join in with us at Jo's HERE

Now some of you may have seen this Phantom on my face book page 

It was my brov off to his Halloween pub do.  I did suggest he shaved off his beard and tash on the side only under the mask,   for some reason he didn't !!.  Anyhow he still won third prize !!

New Dinkies !!

More new very cute Dinkie stamps out by Little Claire !!

We start off with the newly named "Goosey and Lucy" and have you checked out all the fab ribbon Little Claire have ?? On this dinkie card I have used the ribbon to make my background, frantage for the snow and spectrum noir pens to colour with and a bit of silver stickes on the star !!

Next we have the two "We 6 Dogs" and "Hello Cats" which now also come in Dinkies !!

On my dogs dinkie card I have actually used the cover sheet of paper from the Dinkies - Mini Fruit Pastels" paper pack for my background. Again coloured with spectrum noir pens.

 And for "Hello Cats" the papers are from "Mini Dotty" and "Mini Gingham" Dinkie paper pads.

Dinkie cards are fun and quick to make so pop over and have a look at all the fun Dinkie stamps and paper pads and cards and have a play !!
