Little Claire Be the First Class - Part 1


Today I'm sharing one of the cards I designed for the Little Claire 'Be the First' class which took place last Saturday.  I had two classes that day and another two today so it's been a busy couple of weeks!  We had some new faces at the classes plus lots of people who had been before - here's a photo of everyone hard at work last Saturday:


On the 'Be the First' class we used some of the latest stamp designs from Little Claire - for this first card we used the very cute 'Let's Do Lunch' which you can find here on the Little Claire website.  The three little stamps (the bird, cat and tulips) are all separate so you can create your own scene - I also used the tulips to make the border on the front panel of the card.  It's a little folded card which I created by scoring and folding a piece of white card.

New from Little Claire - Hot Air Balloons


Another two brand new stamps have been launched this week by Little Claire and today I'm sharing a card made with one of them 'Hot Air Balloons'.  You can find the stamp here on the Little Claire website.


The great thing about the stamp is that it comes in four separate pieces - the three balloons and the grass at the bottom so it can be stamped in lots of different combinations.  Plus it's perfect for a bit of masking which is what I've done with my card - I've masked the two largest balloons and then stamped one of the medium sized ones and two of the smallest.  I've also used the sentiment from one of the other new stamps, the very cute 'Up, Up and Away' which is here.

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

Sister Act Card Challenge - 'anything goes'
Red Rubber Inspirationals - 'make a scene'
