New from Little Claire - 'Girly Changing Tree'


Another great new addition to the 'Changing Tree' stamp sets has just been added to the Little Claire blog and this time it's a set of gorgeous girly embellishments!  You can find the embellishments here on the website.  The ideal is that you stamp just the tree itself (available here with the original embellishments) and then build up the rest of the design yourself using the little embellishment stamps so you always get your own unique design!  As well as these embellishments and the ones in the original pack, you can also buy a set for Christmas and a Baby set.

For my first card (above) I used paper from the Back to Basics III pack plus some dark brown paper and some pink Bazzill card.  The sentiment I've used is from the 'Dictionary Definitions' set and I finished the card with some little paper flowers, coloured with a Promarker plus some Glamour Dust.


For my next card I used one of the Fanciful Card blanks and some paper from Papermania.  I've applied some of the Glitter Sparkle Sheet over the main image and then edged it with brown ink.  The sentiment is from the 'Dictionary Definitions' set again and I finished the card with some little self adhesive pearls.

I'd like to enter my cards in the following challenges:

Totally Stampalicious - 'anything goes'
Love to Create - 'lots of layers' (first card)
Dream Valley - 'glitter and bling'
Card Crafter's Circle - 'a day at the races (glitz and glamour)
Paper Pretties Monday Challenge - 'bling'

Create and Craft Four Day Deal - Part 1



The new four day deal on Create and Craft is a Card Creations Plus CD rom called 'Brushstrokes in the Wild' - once again, I was part of the Design Team making sample cards for the TV shows and I'll be sharing my cards over the next two days.

There are some amazing paintings on the CD rom and they're perfect for making cards for all occasions including cards for men.  For each of the paintings there are a series of toppers and verses plus different backing papers and borders.  The great thing about the toppers is that they look like they have been layered up (as you can see in the photo above) but print out flat - they give you dimension on your cards without the extra layers adding to postage charges.  I also love the tartan papers on the CD rom - you can see one of them in the photo of the card above.

Here's my next card using a zebra topper:


And the next using a giraffe image:


and finally a card using a leopard image:


I'll have some more cards to share tomorrow.

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:

Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge - 'male card' (last card)
SJ Crafts Shop Blog - 'birthdays' (third card)
Southern Girls Challenge - 'animals'
Bearly Mine Challenges - 'easel cards' (third card)
Here Come the Boys - 'die cuts or punches' (last card)
Tammy's Scrapin' Corner - 'anything goes'
Craft Your Passion - 'inspiration photo' (last card)

It was a fabulous day and I really enjoyed the projects we made.  I'll be sharing my projects from the classes with Ali and Neet in the near future but today I wanted to show the card I made with Clare - changed the layout a bit.  The main image stamp we used is from Hampton Art and is called 'Butterflies Are Free' and we also used three different butterfly stamps.  The background was done with Distress Inks and we layered and raised the circle which is part of the main image and then the butterflies.  The bodies of the butterflies are highlighted with Glossy Accents.
