Little Claire Blog Challenge 55 - Springtime

Good afternoon Bloggers,

I've had a delightful indulgent weekend crafting!  Coffee and cupcake waiting so a quickie post to share my latest make for the new blog challenge over at Little Claire's - Springtime with a £20 web voucher as the prize.  Fabbie prize so much choice.

I have used the latest Club set from Little Claire - Springtime.

The set comprises of 3 square stamp designs plus sentiments - beautiful.  I chose yellow as a base colour linking with Mothering Sunday - but the choice is yours!  A little checked ribbon, brad and promarkers - job done!

Now off to enjoy my treat...  xxGaynor

Little Claire - March Club Set


As promised here are a few of my cards created using the March Club Set - proper job, so love being able to work with nature inspired designs.

All the cards were stamped with pigment ink and embossing powders added.  Embossing was so trendy a few years back I think it is time for a revival.  Crafting is becoming quite like fashion everything comes around once again with small changes.

I have accented all the images with a specialised glitter - has large and very tiny elements purchased at a craft show a few years ago - I love the reflection quality is gives to the work.

I am also enjoying adding ribbon to the majority of my designs at present - American Crafts have a fabulous range that coordinate so well with Bazzil Card and Promarkers.  The brads are from the stash!

Any further queries please just ask - very happy to oblige.  xxGaynor

Little Claire - Dinkies


1st March began here as a beautiful morning - tis rainy and not so nice now.  Perfect reason to chill and upload to my blog.

I so love it when packages arrive from Little Claire, always a surprise - recently the envelope contained 9 dinkie stamps.  Mmh thinking hat on and away I went.  I do enjoy the challenge at times - being part of the Little Claire Design Team does mean that I receive stamps that at times I may not initially choose to purchase.  But a play down the line and I am very quickly converted.

The opportunity to work with excellent designs combined with beautiful papers, dies and embellishments makes a very enjoyable craft escape.  I am so fast at tidying up after "playing" these days I even impress myself!

So on with the shares:

Backing papers in all the cards from Little Claire - coloured using promarkers.  Ribbon from American Crafts.

All the stamps are available from Little Claire - Members please hold back on purchasing until you receive your Club Pack for this month.  March Club Stamp Set is one of the very best yet.  I believe the package contains brilliant offers!

I will post piccies of my March makes later this month.

That's it from me for to check out my teamie makes,  xxGaynor
