On both cards I have stamped out additional butterflies to create additional dimension.  I have also used the stamp to create the backing design.  On both I have used nesabilites dies plus sentiment tags from Little Claire, promarkers and glitter glue.

Hearts and Flowers

A share of a couple of cards made using Little Claire's latest project stamp set for February.  A great little set, quick and easy if you wish as the tree and embellishments are all in one.  Simple to colour in and flexible through different colour tones and embellishments.  Also included are a lavender planter,  a hedgehog whose obviously been rolling in the flowers and a pretty floral border stamp.

Backing papers are from Craftwork cards as is the card candy.  Martha Stewart border punch and ribbons from Little Claire. Brads, pearls and spun thread from "the" stash.  All coloured with promarkers.

Just back in from the Stitch and Hobbycraft Show at Event City in Manchester...............a fabulous show, resisted buying any stamps but have come home with some lovely Memory Box Dies, some Zentangle to get my head round and more adhesive embellishments from Mie mono cat fabric to make some more Cat Nip Sachets for my local Cats Protection a little snooze or craft...............????

Getting ahead!

Inspired by Julie Hickey - I have spent today using the Garden paper pack from Docrafts - also available from Little Claire, using delicious papers and a selection of punches.
The first is one of two Mother's Day cards - getting ahead. I have added gold mirri candy to the flowers and a large glitter embellishment to the smaller flower.  The butterflies are layered together which adds more dimension.  I have outlined the card with a fineliner and added little dots to suggest movement of the butterflies.

The second card using a very large flower punch layered with 2 additional flower shapes.  I also punched out the leaves and the little tag.  Another glitter embellishment for the centre of the flower.
I have edged both the cards with a promarker - antique rose which softens the edges and tones with the paper pad.

Hope you likey......................

I was going to be very brave and cut into new papers which arrived from both Craftwork Cards and Lily of the Valley - yes been treating myself - but just couldn't do it......need to look and admire them a little longer I I'm not the only crafty horder :)  xxGaynor

Friday Project at Little Claire

Morning all, 1st February and it is my turn for the Friday Project from Little Claire.

I needed to make a “special” birthday card for a friend, she is a massive cat lover celebrating a birthday ending in a zero. So I just had to choose the special square stamp from Little Claire featuring mischievous moggies – Cat in a Box and embellished using the special sentiment set. I stamped an additional cat to layer up and create dimension.

I have used backing papers from Little Claire their “Blank Canvas” pad which is available online – delicious pad, some embellished, very lovely……………….used Nestabilities Scalloped Square and Circle dies.Black mementos ink pad, Martha Stewart Border Punch, and a little cutie cat punch, makes a change from card candi.  As it is me…..yes there are adhesive clear tiny crystals added, always need a little sparkle!

Promarkers as pictured.

I hope you like my quickie make……………..hope “Birthday Girl”manages to smile……..I was a little worried whether to include her special 0 in the card! Am sure I’ll be finding out shortly!

Whatever you are doing, keep safe and warm…… month heralds spring……..and new beginnings.xxGaynor
