We Six Cat's Card

Good morning,
Am not feeling too well today, have caught a little bug and am staying close to home.
Here is my card for the Little Claire Friday project today.  I have used a gorgeous new stamp set called 'We Six Cat's, its just adorable!  My tutorial can be found HERE on the blog.
I have used the lovely new 'Christmas Quilt's' papers and scalloped kraft card blanks from their website.
Am off back to bed to get better, lots of box sets to catch up on.
Have a lovely weekend,

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.

Hobby Art on Create & Craft Card Samples

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!
Have a wonderful day, I will be back tomorrow to share my Little Claire workshop makes with you.
