Little Claire Friday 1st of 2015 Blog Project

Good morning.

Wishing everyone a happy and healthy 2015.

I have created a quickie card to start off the New Year.  I say a quick card - it always takes me ages of playing, tweaking and of course thinking before a card is created.  But once the idea is there and the room covered in craftiness - it comes together!  Doesn't take me as long to put everything away!

Here is my design for today using the beautiful Silhouette Owl Tree and a Little Tag stamp from Little Claire.  I used coodinating papers - this is the bit where the room gets "busy". A pigment ink pad to coordinate - another few trays out, a little twine, pretty charm, diamond glaze and of course a crystal or two.

I am quite pleased with the design - I enjoy paper tearing, I think it adds an element to the dimension and of course doesn't create too much depth to be posted.

Here's my make in piccies:







Hope you likey and perhaps feel a little inspired to be creative.  All the very best to you and yours.  Gaynor xx

Special card - special daughter.

Hi all,

Sharing the 8" x 8" card I created for our daughter's 21st last weekend.  My initial inspiration was taken from Pinterest: craftingcottage.wordpress.com - thank you.


I embossed the background with assorted embossing folders. Martha Stewart punch and paper from Craftwork Cards. Stamped butterflies created with matching dies.  Diamond Glaze added to the coordinating card candy and a few selected butterflies on the backing paper.  As always glitter glue and crystals.  All in all the card took me 3 hours of playing.........sure if I made one similar it might not take quite so long.....ha ha.  
Have had a lovely weekend experimenting with different crafts....had loads of fun yesterday afternoon - brusho and silhouette stamps......will share another day... xxGaynor
