Little Claire Monthly Challenge #62

Good Morning everyone,

I can't quite believe how fast these challenges keep arriving... fingers crossed for a lovely weekend.  I so love warm autumnal days and cosy evenings.  The colours this year are already looking amazing.

Well today marks a new blog challenge at Little Claire - your favourite stamp.  Was so tricky to decide so I worked with an autumnal colour theme and used the delicious flowerhead.

Little Claire have a £10 voucher up for grabs to spend on anything from their website.......decisions, decisions.  Why not join in and share.  xxGaynor

Autumn Blog Challange with Little Claire #61


My mum's birthday this week links timely with Little Claire's new Blog Challenge #61 - Autumn

So here is my card created for the challenge which yes is my mum's card - her birthday is on the 17th September - she doesn't use the internet so am okay to post :)

I have used the Pom Pom Dahlia stamp from Little Claire alongside sentiment circle and text, backed onto a Little Claire mono print.  The ribbon was acquired whilst on holiday in Cornwall - see I knew I just had to purchase - now safely stashed away.

Please join ourselves in the latest blog challenge, we really do appreciate each and every entry.

Hope you like my little make, off to check out my teamies designs.  xxGaynor

Friday Blog Project with Little Claire

Good Morning,

My turn today to share the Friday Project at Little Claire.  I used one of their new Christmas Stamps - "We 6 Cats" with text from their Little Dinkie range.

Piccies to show how my card came together:

I have used a 15 x 15cm card base and matted and layered 13 x 13cm, 12.5 x 12.5cm and 12 x 12cm.

I die cut the card prior to stamping the "We 6 Cats" using Memento Black ink as I used promarkers to colour the stamped image.

Matts and layers as shown.  The white backing card has been embossed using a bauble design to mirror the "cat bauble."

I die cut a "bauble" hanger and created a bow.

I matted and layered using double sided tape.  The stamped image is fixed using 3D foam pads.  I glued the star behind the matted bauble as I felt it detracted from the stamped design.

I have added white glitter to highlight the design and faux crystals to the embossed bauble background.

Lastly I stamped the Happy Christmas Sentiment.  I hope perhaps I may have given you a little inspiration today.  I am so looking forward to seeing the new Little Claire Project Club Magazine - hope you are too.

Thank you as always for all your support Gaynor and everyone at Little Claire. xx

Christmas Scotties from Little Claire.

Another quickie post using the July Club set from Little Claire:

Aren't they cute - loving these little fella's!

I'm on the count down to breaking up for the summer - the finishing line still seems a long way off - going to need lots of hankies saying goodbye to the year 6's many of whom I have been teaching for 6 years...and how they have grown.  xxGaynor
