Tree O of birds from Little Claire


Have had a lovely day crafting today - have been catching up on my makes for Little Claire.  Tree O Little Birds Dinkies were released last week - time for me to post my couple of makes:

Here I have used all three dinkies which can be purchased individually from Little Claire.  The greeting is from their Dinkie range of sentiments.

Backing papers are also from Little Claire.  Hope you like my makes.  xxGaynor

Three Sparkly Snowmen from Little Claire - Friday Blog Project

Hello and good morning - well I've made it an eight week half term - Halloween Disco later today for the "little ones" then half terms beckons for me...and chill.

I am hoping to have loads of crafting time over the week, after all that school planning is out of the way first of course- have some newbies to play with from Little Claire - ssh unable to share as yet but they are as lovely and gorgeous as ever and not Christmas...

On with today's make - Three Sparkly Snowmen - yes they are bright and cheery - not quite ready to think cold and dark....they really are a happy and vibrant trio.  So on with today's recipe:


148mm x 148mm white base card LC
Dark metallic grey card for matting and layering
Mementos black ink pad
Tag punch
Pro Markers:  moss green, lime green, poppy, cool grey 1 and 4 and pastel blue
Red 10mm satin edge organza ribbon
Black adhesive pearls, fine white glitter and lime brad.


Stamp image as shown onto white stamping card and trim to 10cm x 10cm. Stamp Happy Christmas onto small individual punched tags. Outline all with lime green promarker.
Matt red snowfall paper 138mm x 138mm and stamped image onto grey metallic card 142mm x 142mm and 105mm x 105mm

Create a triple bow using organza ribbon and fasten around the matted backing papers.
Adhere stamped matted image as shown using 3D foam pads to add dimension.  Fix tag sentiments using small brad.
Colour image using promarkers.
Carefully shade round stamped images with blue pastel promarker – this adds dimension.

Add tiny black crystals and fine glitter to accent.

Fix card topper to base card using double sided tape.

Hope you have enjoyed by cheerful make.  Cheerio from me for today xxGaynor

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
