More Little Claire Christmas stamps


I had a bit of a re-organisation yesterday and then did lots of crafting, and didn't get chance to blog, so I'm showing 2 of the new Little Claire stamps today.  It finally dawned on me that if I moved all my colouring stuff into the kitchen, I could get lots of colouring done while still being there for the kids, then make the cards up later.  Until now, everything was upstairs in the craft room, so I could only 'work' when they were in bed or out with hubby.  Hopefully I'll be able to get a lot more done now, without ignoring my boys :o)  Not sure why I didn't think of it before!

I've made my first card using the cute 'we three cats' stamp from Little Claire (available in the store soon), coloured with promarkers, with lots of glamour dust on the hat trims.  The papers are Dovecraft 'christmas fancy' (there's a pack of these papers & glamour dust in my blog candy...link in the top right of my blog), with coredinations cardstock.  I used an inverted corner punch around the image, and then used the punched out bits for a bit of extra detail, with some little green pearls from my stash.  The sentiment is computer generated - I've printed off a full sheet of different Christmas sentiments so I can just cut them out when I need one.


For my second card I've used this sweet polar bear stamp, again from Little Claire, coloured with promarkers, with glamour dust again (I like my sparkle, especially on Christmas cards!).  Paper is DCWV, red cardstock from my stash.  Added some ribbon tabs and the sentiment is a Pink Petticoat download.

I'm entering my cards for the following challenges:

  9. Loving these images, such pretty cards. That reveal makes me want to win the candy even more, looks fab. I often do some colouring in the lounge whilst hubby is watching TV so we can spend more time together. It is great to have some coloured images ready too. Marianne x

    Wow these are far too gorgeous! I love these images they are so cute. I envy you being able to have your stuff in the kitchen, I have just been kicked upstairs so i'm not getting half as much done as i did. I used to do a little bit every time i boiled the kettle or managed to escape for 5! Have fun!
    PS I did get your email :-(
    i've been away so i wasn't ignoring you!!!
