Clarity Stamps

Variation on a theme, everytime I do this card, I do something slightly different.

The tree stamp from Clarity Stamp is becoming a firm favourite. The verse stamp for once is not from Clarity but from Inkylicious. Coloured the image and background using brayer techniques, so that they would co-ordinate.

This collage stamp is from Clarity stamp, also available as individaul stamps are some of the elements of the collage stamp. These individual stamps were used to create the background for the card. The only stamp not from Clarity is the grid lines, which is from Elusive Images. The silver metal butterfly has been tinted with alcohol inks, to make it blend in.

This card was inspired by a project from Barbara Gray's Project club and a demonstration she did on Create and Craft.

Joanna Sheen Stamps

The lady on the beach is from Joanna's Diva Stamp range. The background stamp is from Clarity Stamps.

The Giraffes are from Joanna's Jayne Netley Mayhew stamp range. The background stamps are from the same stamp sheet - this is one thing I like about sheets of stamps - that the main image often coming with co-ordinating smaller stamps that are great for creating co-ordinating backgrounds.

Stamp Stamps

Two cards I have created using the Stamps stamps from Clarity Stamps. I have used my scanner to create these images.

Lindsay Mason

I just love Lindsay's cat images. The backgrounds have all been coloured/created using different techniques but using the same ink pad - giving three tonal co-ordinating background layers/mats.

This card used elements from two sets of frog stamps from Personal Impressions.

Here is another one.

This card was created by using elements from three Lindsay Mason clear stamps released through Personal Impressions. Inks used were Tim Holtz Distress inks - Barn Door and Worn Lipstick.

Penny Black Stamps

The stamp used on this card is from Penny Black and is called Flying Stars. I have used Tim Holtz Distress Inks - Worn Lipstick and Barn Door. The silver mat was created from Silver Guilding Flakes.

This card was produced for a challenge on Docrafts forum - a photo inspired challenge.

Barbara produces a number of different verse stamps. These are cards I have created around these verses.

Artist Trading Cards (ATCs)

These were my first brayer ATCs. I have used an elastic band round the brayer to create the ant tunnels. I have used brayering on screwed up paper and thin strips of masking tape to create the water effect on the whale ATC.

These ATCS were created using the Hobby Art Winter Scene It stamps. Inspired by seeing Jenny do a demonstration of a much larger scene.

This owl ATC was inspired by something I saw Lyndsay Mason do on her blog.

I just love these Papermania Owls.

This group of five ATCs were created using either Clarity Stamps or a technique demonstrated by Barbara. The lambs were stamped on self adhesive "fuzzy felt".
