Little Claire - September club stamp set

Here's a couple of cards made with the September club stamp set from Little Claire Designs - this is a huge set and fantastic value.  There are main images, sentiment stamps and lots of little accent stamps, it's a lovely set. I've made my first card using the little Christmas pudding, Merry Christmas sentiment and the 3 snowflake stamps from the set, all stamped in white ink (from Elzybells) onto Kraft paper that I bought AGES ago from Craftwork Cards and then never used (because I couldn't decide what to do with it!).  The red shape is a nestie, but I forgot to check which one, sorry.  I've edged everything with the white ink, and then used my promarkers and a touch of stickles for the little berries.

For my second card I used the cute penguin from the set, coloured with promarkers, with lots of glamour dust for some sparkle.  I've used some frame dies from Little Claire to cut out and mount the image.  Papers are MME, and the shimmery blue cardstock is from my stash.  I really should have done more with this card, it needs some snowflakes or something, but I was having a blank moment when I made it and nothing seemed to work!

My house is soooo lovely and peaceful today, as it's my eldest son's first day back at school.  I still have my younger son at home - and will have until next Easter when he starts nursery - but it's so much easier and quieter with just Dex :o)  I'm hoping to get a lot more done now that I have a bit of peace!
