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

Swirlball Flowers - Friday Blog Project

Hi from everyone at Little Claire,

Friday Blog Project from myself (Gaynor) today...I am scheduling this post as currently watching the tennis on a Saturday evening ...and enjoying all the action.

Today's card has been created using a shadow box of pigment inks - a backdrop for a beautiful stamped image from the Little Claire Swirlball Flower Set

Here is my tutorial in piccies:

I added glitter just to the flowerheads that were stamped into the ink shadow. Before adding the glitter allow the pigment ink to dry.

My project links in with this month's current Blog Challenge - July in Bloom.  There is a fabulous prize on offer.  Hoping I may have provided a little inspiration.  xxGaynor

Backing papers are from Little Claire, an element of paper piecing, adhesive crystals and of course glitter glue.  xxGaynor

July in Bloom - Little Claire Challenge No 59

Wow, can't quite believe that we are in the middle of July already!  The weather has been glorious over the last few weeks...I have my fingers and toes crossed that some of the fabulous weather lasts into August - yes I will be celebrating schools out for summer very shortly!!!

Here is my make for the July Challenge over at Little Claire - requiring lots of blooms.

I have used the Little Claire Dinkie Flowerhead and the sentiment from a Beach Hut Set that I have had for ages and love so.  There is of course plenty of gold glitter sparkle in the centre of the blooms - I would consider it quite rude not to.

Have a look at the new challenge launching today and join in the fun - it doesn't need to be created with a Little Claire Stamp but if it is the larger the smiles.  There is always a fabbie prize on offer.  I'm off now to check out my design teamie makes....over to you xxGaynor

Twinkle butterfly!


Another share this time using the very pretty and quite large butterfly twinkle stamp from Little Claire.

I have created again similarly to my silhouette Christmas cards - this time using warm background colours.

Plenty of twinkle and sparkle added also.

The beautiful sentiment is included with the stamp design.  Very lovely me thinks.  Hope you like too. xxGaynor

Yeh newbies from Little Claire!


Friday evening - the weekend is here...yeh, yeh and double yeh!

I'm still enjoying playing with inks and less is more at the moment with my card designs.

So here is a share of some of my latest makes using 3 new silhouette Christmas stamps from Little Claire.  I masked off an area with masking tape and coloured direct from the die ink pads.

Allowing the ink to dry before pigment ink stamping in black and embossing with clear fine detail embossing powder.

Adhesive crystals added plus a little glitter here and there, fake snow too in places...

Sorry can't not embelish!!!

The Christmas sentiments are also from Little Claire - stamps from my stash.

Hope you likey.  xxGaynor
