Wavy Hedghogs Stamp Set from Little Claire Designs.

Am busy scheduling my posts amongst a thunder storm - gosh it has gone so dark at 2pm in the afternoon - normal Bank Holiday weather obviously :)
Out of the latest trio of Wavy Stamp Sets - Wavy Hedgehogs released from Little Claire - these guys are my favourites:

Both have been created by masking off a central panel - adding inks with my blending tool.  Faux border created using my Micron pen, Glamour Dust Glitter, Glossy Accents and Promarkers for shading.
They really do make me smile.  Again an additional 3 very versatile sentiments in this set. xxGaynor

Wavy Stamp Sets fromLittle Claire Designs - Wavy Doggies


Hope everyone is enjoying the long Easter Weekend.......4 day working week for me this week.................then two weeks off.  Yes getting excited :)
Time to be able to share my makes using the latest trio of Wavy Stamp Sets from Little Claire Designs.
Here I have used the Wavy Doggies Set.

Same stamp used in very different ways.  The first I have repeatedly stamped the design to create a banding over three layers.
The second has been stamped in an inked zone.  Faux border to both added using a micron pen.  Both are shaded with promarkers.  Have Wink of Stella and Glamour Dust Glitter plus Glossy Accents.  I also added a faux flight trial for some of the tiny gorgeous butterflies.
The set comes with a choice of three sentiments.
Currently Little Claire have a Multiple purchase offer.  Check out the details here.

Last of the Dinkie shares - Rain Hogs from LCD


Wishing everyone a lovely Easter...

Last of the four new Dinkie Designs from Little Claire Designs to share today.  The fabulous happy "Rain Hogs" - very apt as will soon be approaching April.

I have paper pieced the umbrella canopy using the matching backing paper from Little Claire Designs - I was very thrifty - the paper piece is cut from the base layer :)

Matted and layered onto sunshine yellow.  Shaded using promarkers, glossy accents of course added to the rain drops and puddles and a little raffia ribbon to add interest from the stash.  Faux border using a fine micron pen and ruler.

Additional reminder of their current offer:

Fingers crossed I will soon be able to share additional makes using more incredible wavy stamp designs - just need the okay from Gill and Steve :)  xxGaynor

Dinkie - Chimney Sweep Stamp from Little Claire Designs


Knee more flexible - getting there......

Today I would like to share a card created with my very favourite, favourite stamp design from Little Claire - Dinkie Chimney Sweep So pleased this "Little Boy" is back with Little Claire - he had a girl companion too, so hope that she will be released also as a Dinkie at some point. Pretty please Steve and Gill :)

I think the stamp is so, so lovely.  Simple matting and layering using Little Claire Designs backing paper and base card.  Faux border, embellishments from the stash.  I have also added "Wink of Stella" to the bristle brush for added shimmer.

New Dinkie Stamps from Little Claire

Hi all,

Drum roll ... 4 new dinkie designs released by Little Claire Designs today and all four can be purchased for the price of 3.

Tis a little unusual day today - I was on the annual year 6 trip overnight visit to London last week and managed to twist my knee on the coach on the journey down.  After a very tricky two days in London - yes I did manage to keep up with my group - just, and a ticking off from the medic at my local hospital on Friday am...I am now at home being good, resting and exercising as instructed :) The exercising bit really hurts - when you are told to take enough medication to be able to do the exercises but insufficient to function normally you think okay best do as I am told.  I need to be fit for our escape to Cornwall in a couple of weeks......Target set!

So on with a couple of shares:

I have created the two cards using Dinkies 3 Owls For both I have used backing papers from Little Claire, shaded using promarkers.  Faux border created using a ruler and fine micron pen.  Embellishments added from the stash.  The latter card has a border created using a Martha Stewart Border Punch - Zigzag.

Here's the flyer advertising Little Claire Designs offer:

Oh well - best begin another round of exercises - I may be gone a little time :)  Cheerio from me for today. xxGaynor

#67 - Anything Goes from Little Claire Designs.

I feel so happy and chirpy - I love the lighter nights, nature awakening, all is good :)
Little Claire Designs latest Blog Challenge is "Anything Goes" - sheer delight especially when I have recently been working with new designs - they are gorgeous, every Little Claire Designs fan will be "buzzing" with the new creations - I certainly am.
My share for this challenge is using one of the new stamp sets - to be released at the end of this month.  Gill kindly gave me permission to share as a sneak peek - thank you Gill, time and tide and all that just ran away with me.
Steve will be sharing some sneak peeks of the new designs at the Craftwork Card Show this Friday and Saturday at the new venue in York - if you are able check them out.
So here is my make: I have created an inked background and stamped the Wavy Dogs Stamp image using black ink.  I masked off an area for the moon and used Wink of Stella.  The central dog has been glossy accented and of course a little fine glitter added to the faux butterfly trails.  The set comes with 3 different sentiments.  Trusty promarkers used to shade in the image.  Sentiment added top and bottom and a faux border created with a black micron pen.

Little Claire Designs have a fabulous prize for grabs.  Why not join in the excitement and give it a go?
Off now to check out my Design Teamies makes.  xxGaynor
