Card Swap Card

As part of The Little Claire Stamp Club I made this card using the stamps and card I was sent.

I did not make it 100% as instructed, by adding real buttons and bows.
For the Joanna Sheen Card Swap for May - I have repeated this card and updated by making it a 7 x 7 card and changing the colour scheme, making the colours used on the stamped images to those on the background paper.

Julia Watts - Homework

I was fortunate to win through Julia's website all the bits an pieces from a Craft Clinic she did on Create and Craft.  This is the first homecard I created.

The car was stamped and the aperture cut out - when I received it.  I coloured the car and added the map (from Aspects of Design - The Stampman) and added the pricked edge and pearls corners (from Creative Expressions).

Female 21st Birthday

This was the project card from Nina Craft's last year.

Card adapted for Female footballer.
I lengtened the hair on the footballer stamp, to turn it from male to female.

Comissioned Card for same birthday.  Birds and letters - Clarity Stamp - flowers Little Claire.

Triple Stamping - Male Card

Sue Wilson card pack, Inky Doodles stamps, Phill Martin's Vintage Oak Spritzer and Little Claire Greeting used in this triple stamp card.

April Card Swaps

The themes for the two card swaps I am taking part in this month are "Watch the Birdie" and "Smile".  Both made me think of taking pictures of birds.  I came up with the following design which was to include a camera embellishment, but it made the card look unbalanced, so I added the word smile instead.  I made one card for each swap and one to keep - tough decision - as each one was layered up differently.

April 17th - Maria Simms Workshop

Here are my finished cards and wall hanging from the workshop that Maria ran.

First Project - Had to add a greeting of my choice when I returned home. 
Second Project - Played with grunge paste and gold leaf.
Made the topper and choice was ours to make a walling hanging or a card.
Project 3 - This was Maria's card (lilac) that she allowed people to take a picture of so they could finish their cards when they got home - mine in the orange one.

Project 4 - stamping and embossing in black and colouring in with spectrum noir pencils.  I don't have these pencils, however I have some metallic pencils so used  those instead.  Again, first card is hers, which we were allowed to take a picture of, so we had something to work towards when we got home.  Fortunately, I had the same stamp at home.
