May's Card

A special card for a friend at work - pram and bottle from Dimension Stamps and Letters from the Clarity Letter box set. I even used some peel-offs which I have not done for a while. Pink buttons also worked well. Coloured in the bottle and pram with paper piecing and promarkers.

Liked the effect of the card I did last month for a swap - regretted giving it away. So I had a go at a different image. Could not get the card right for the tile topper, so I framed it instead. Stamps are all from Clarity. Painted the frame of a boot sale photo frame.

Card inspired by an idea I saw demonstrated by Lynell Harlow in her recent appearance on Create and Craft. Involved the use of the Dreamweaver square grid stencil.

Background stencil/mask is from Crafter's Workshop and has been overpainted with white gesso. The fauna stamp is from Inkylicious.

Daisy Stamp from Hobby Art Ltd

Inspired by this card that I saw on the Hobby Art stand at Harrogate - I later found out it was made by Georgina Sweetenham.

I made this card.

I cut out and embossed my spellbinder shapes before inking them, to produce the white line borders. I must have used a smaller card blank than the original card, as I have less of the daisies showing in my apeture.

Little Claire Designs

I belong to the Little Claire Project Club and am enjoying it. Here are some cards made with the stamps received through the Project club, that I liked the most in 2012.
This was an alternative design suggested in the project club leaflet - adapted of course.
I found it very difficult to send this card after I had made it.
This male card was made several times for different male birthdays. You could add the age of the recipient to the front of the radio.
