Hobby Art - Create & Craft Samples

Good morning,
I hope you caught Jenny from Hobby Art on Create & Craft this morning.  She is showcasing some lovely new stamp sets today.
Firstly, a card using the fabulously funny 'Baa-Humbug'
and the inside

Next a contempory card using the new 'Baubles' set.  I have stamped the larger bauble onto lilac card and covered over with acetate.

And lastly a little card using the 'Christmas Mice' set, which was the monthly special set for July.

Jenny will be on again later today, at 6pm so do tune in to see more of the Design Team's samples or you can treat yourself to any of these sets HERE from their own website.
I will be staying in crafting today as the weather here is awful! High winds, heavy rain and freezing!
Have a great day,

Little Claire Monthly Challenge # 60 - Christmas in August!

Hello bloggers,
Am sharing my Little Claire Design Team card with you today.  A new stamp challenge started yesterday and our theme is 'Christmas'.
Here is my card using the gorgeous 'Christmas Westie Postbox', 'Dinky Poinsettia' and some lush papers from the Little Claire 'Dotty' paper pack.
The sentiment is one of the new 'Dinky Sentiments'.  All of the products can be found on the website HERE and all of the DT cards can be seen on the Little Claire BLOG.
Our family are still celebrating this weekend, as my lovely Jess got three A*'s and a B in her A Levels and has got a place at the University of Surrey, to take Psychology. Am so, so proud of her, she has worked so hard and deserves her place.
Have a lovely Sunday afternoon.  I am off to my craft room as have samples to get made.
Take care,

Little Claire Workshop Cards # 1

Hello, here as promised are a couple of my cards from Little Claire workshops that were held last weekend.
We had a lovely fun time with the ladies.  Lots of regulars and some new ladies came along to make mine and Helen Nile's cards.  Steve had a wonderful shop on site, selling everything needed to make great cards.
Firstly, here is my flowerpot card using the gorgeous 'March Flowers' stamp set.  I made the card by stamping up four of the flowers, colouring them and cutting out.  The fourth was cut from the centre of the flowers and decoupaged onto the third image,
and here is the inside

The set has lots of lovely sentiments included, this 'sending smiles' one fitted neatly onto my card insert.  Finished off with some 'Mercury Glass' Stickles Glitter Glue, my favourite glitter glue.
I used the 'Bird & Pincushion' dinky stamp on this card, along with some of the wonderful
'Little Claire' - 'Quirky Quilts' papers.  I finished off my little care by using glossy accents over the main images.

I will share the other cards tomorrow.
Have a lovely afternoon, thanks for stopping by.

Bad blogger here again! Yes sorry for not blogging for over a week now, if you have missed my posts.
I have been reminded by some lovely crafty ladies that I taught at the two Little Claire workshops over the weekend, that my blog posts are very absent, so I will try to share more of my makes in the future.  I got lots of lovely comments about my cards, it really made my weekend.
The lovely Jenny Mayes of Hobby Art will be showing off these gorgeous new stamps today on Create and Craft at 1pm and 6mp. They are just wonderful to stamp up and colour in!
The first is :
'Peter the Polar Bear ' combined with 'Winter Snowflakes' (CS105D)
 Secondly, I have altered a Tando frame using :
'Christmas Friends' (CS106D)
and inside

I have also used a sentiment from the 'Winter Snowflakes' (CS105D) set.
Next, a blue snowflake card again using 'Winter Snowflakes' and one of the sentiments that comes in the set.

 and then a pastel Christmas card using :
Rufus the Reindeer (CS104D)
I do hope you can join her today, the DT's samples are so festive and wonderful!
