Little Claire Designs - New Stamps Samples

I forgot to show all my samples for the brand new stamps at Little Claire Designs.


For this card I have stamped the image onto white linen card and coloured the poppies with Chameleon pens.













I have used one of the mini kraft cards and stamped and embossed the image. I again coloured them with Chameleon pens. I added some white / gold embossing enamel.

















This one has an inked background and I've stamped and coloured the image. I've also added some washi butterfly tape.













Stamped onto patterned paper and layered up.



















I've coloured the image and layered it up with a Sil frame cut on my Cameo. He's been coloured with Chameleon pens  and also highlighted with a white pen.













Plain white card been embossed with an embossing file. I made the wreath with patterned paper and cut out with my Cameo. Same way of colouring again.

















This is a beautiful stamp and sentiment set. I've used Nitwit LOTV papers to paper piece.














Lots of pretty patterned papers and layers for this one and I've stitched around the images. Coloured with Chameleon pens.
















All these and more can be found on the Little Claire website store.

Crafty SVG Designs 3D layered christmas card - Snapdragon Snippets

Today's project is a beautiful 3D card.



The svg file is from one of our new designers on Snapdragon Snippets - Crafty SVG Designs. I tried to cut it on my Cameo but it didn't cut it well enough so I tried to cut it on my Explore and it worked perfectly. And... this is the reason why I bought an Explore it cuts intricate cuts so much better.
I've used Papermill white linen card for all of it. I added glitter acetate to the very back of the card and also some fine glitter accents to the other layers. Which you can't see very well!!

Snowy Village Card - Chaska Card Company

Today I'd like to show you a beautiful Christmas card file from Chaska Card Company which is available on the brand new Snapdragon Snippets website store. You'll find your favourite designers and plenty of new designers too.




I cut out the file and then added a sheet of adhesive clear glittle sparkle acetate from Little Claire Designs. I cut around the images. I then laid it onto some lovely aqua paper to make the windows stand out.
The file cuts out little snowballs in the background paper so I filled them with some fine glitter and then the cut stars were given the same glitter and I used 3D pads to adhere them. 
This is such a simple but effective file and you can bling it up as much as you want!!

I hope I've inspired you to buy this file and we at Snapdragon Snippets would love to see how you dress yours up too.
