New stamps from Little Claire

Here's a card made with this month's Little Claire club stamp set, which is a great little set called 'dog in window' with main stamps, sentiments and little extras.  There are a few changes happening at Little Claire over the next month or so... my role is changing slightly, and there'll be less sample cards from me for a while, as I'll be setting up and running the new challenges that will be starting next month... all very exciting if a little daunting :o)  So keep an eye on the Little Claire blog as there'll be some blog candy there in the run up to the challenges starting.

Sooo... onto my card!  I had intended to use the window stamp that comes with the set, stamped on acetate... but I'm afraid I failed completely and just couldn't stamp properly on the acetate at all.... and believe me I tried... and went through a few sheets of acetate in the process.  Some of the other DT members are obviously far better stampers than I am though, because they've managed it just fine!  So mine is just the room scene with no window over the top, coloured with promarkers.  The papers are MME, with dark brown Papermill cardstock, flowers cut with an x-cut punch, with card candy centres.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
Apologies for being so hopeless at returning your comments over the last couple of days - I'm still suffering with a big lack of mojo and motivation, and it was my youngest son's 3rd birthday yesterday, so it's been a bit busy.  Going to try and visit as many of you as I can now, before I march myself up to the craft room and try and get something done!


  1. Hi, lovely card, very cute image. I have never been able to stamp on card so acetate would have scared me into silence, hubby would have thought that was a good thing. Your stamping always looks amazing.

  10. Hi Lisa

    A lovely card. Acetate can be a bit of a pain at the best of times .. .. someone told me you can clean wrongly stamped images off and start again .. .. but I have never tried.

    Your colour choices are lovely here as is your layout.

    Best of luck in setting up the challenge. I am sure you will do just fine.

    Hope the birthday celebrations went well.

    Love Jules xx

  13. Great card Lisa, what a cute stamp! I can really sympathise with the lack of crafty mojo...I haven't done anything for 3 weeks now due to illness, Xmas etc...and it took me hours to come up with a card for my DT challenge!!! Hope it comes more easily next time :(
