December Clarity Calendar

Morning, Just a quick post this morning. I decided to enter the Clarity Calendar Challenge this month so I am sharing my entry today. I have to say it has definitely been the hardest crafting I have ever tried. I find it near impossible to replicate someone else's work anyway but even harder when it's Barbara Gray, especially when the project is going to be judged as well.

I have had this stamp set for a while now, I have always loved it, the Santa is so different from any other I have seen, I just love the style.

Well I shall say goodbye for now. I am really going to try to get another post in before Christmas, but if I dont or you miss it. I hope you all have a marvellous Christmas. Take care and Happy Crafting.xx

Bee Crafty Launch Samples

Great News, Bev from Bee Crafty is on Hochanda today for 3 shows. Today I am sharing some of the samples I made for the shows. Please dont miss them, they are always great to watch and full of techniques, demos and super products. The show times are 11 am, 3 pm and the last one at 6 pm.

There's a wonderful new word set and a couple of set of border stamps, they have been great to use and still have plenty on ideas and projects to share with you.

As always, the stamps are incredibly versatile and will suit everyone, whatever your style of crafting or whoever the finished project is for.

There's a brilliant grungy border, I have used it as a whole piece, but also individual elements from it.

Thank you ever so much for stopping by today, I hope you will join me again very soon. Take care and Happy Crafting.xx

Morning. I hope you are all well. I am sure everyone is frantically getting ready for Christmas. Bev will be back on Hochanda tomorrow with some more wonderful stamps, so make sure you tune in at 11 am, 3 pm and 6 pm. Today I am sharing a card I made for the Bee Crafty show on Hochanda, using the Dream stamp. I wanted a very simple card and decided on Black and white, although any colour would look great or even multi coloured. It would be a nice idea to maybe stick with black and then pick out a specific word with a bright colour.

Stupidly, I forgot to take photos as I was making up the design. It's such a simple card so it will be easy to explain step by step.

I started off with my white 8'' square card blank and stamped separate letters all across the card, using black Archival ink. Be careful to clean after each letter to avoid any unwanted marks on your card.

On another piece of white card, I stamped the main word 'Dream' and then positioned my 'Any Road' sentiment beneath. Finally using one of the 'Style Wire' border stamps, I created a box for it.

I then backed it onto black card giving a strong edge to separate it from the background. Then I attached it to my base card using foam tape.

A very strong look, but very clean and simple at the same time.

Thank you for taking a look today, I hope you like the finished card. I will be sharing some launch designs tomorrow on my blog, so I hope you will take a look and please dont miss the shows. Take care and Happy Crafting.

I wont be doing regular Daily posts now until the 'New Year' However I will still be posting weekly. Hope you all have a great Christmas and Here's to a wonderful 2017.
