Little Claire Class - Be the First


Today I'm sharing a couple of cards I designed for one of the Little Claire classes I taught recently.  The first one (above) was made using the very cute 'Yes Miss' stamp which you can find here on the Little Claire website.  I used Bazzill card to create a gatefold card, added patterned paper and finished with some Card Candi.


This second card was made using the 'Garden Shelves' stamp which you can find here on the website.  I've decoupaged some elements on the design and also scored the card at the left hand side to create a spine on the card.

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

Crafts 4 Eternity - 'cute as you like' (first card)
Happy Campers Challenge - add dimension (second card)

Aimi With Lantern

The backing paper I've used is from an old Kanban sheet and I've also added some self adhesive gems and some black Card Candi.

Easter Changing Tree


Today I'm sharing a card I made with one of the latest 'Changing Tree' stamp sets from Little Claire.  If you haven't come across them before, the sets are a great way to create unique cards - you make up your own 'tree' using lots of little stamps so no two designs will ever be the same!

To start with you will need a tree stamp - this comes as part of the original 'Changing Tree' set which you can find here on the website.  Once you have the tree stamp, that works with all the embellishment sets - there are sets to make baby cards, Christmas cards, girly cards and lots more.  To find out how the stamps work, have a look at the project tutorial I did here on the Little Claire blog.

For this card, I've used the 'Changing Tree Easter' set which you can find here with some pastel pink and blue papers and card.  The peel off greeting is also from Little Claire.

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

Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog - 'use an Easter sentiment'

Matchbox ATCs


Something a little bit different from me again today.  This is a set of matchbox ATCs which I made recently for a swap on one of the Yahoo groups I belong to.  It's a standard small matchbox and the idea is to decorate the box and then make miniature ATCs to put inside.

My theme was vintage and I used stamps, old book pages, some 7 Gypsies transfers, stickers and HOTP label words.  I decorated the box with part of a book page and then added a die cut butterfly (the small Memory Box butterfly die) and some pearls.

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