Little Claires Monthly Challenge

I finally have time to show you some of my recent makes! But first it's time for the Little Claire Monthly Challenge.

Our theme is

A Special Card

I have used two of the stamps from the Christmas Snowmen stamp set. Snowflakes are a little stamp which I used to make a background. All the stamping and edging has been done with the stamps, a mixed media glue and Wow metallic gold sparkling embossing powder. Really easy but very effective and it really sparkles! I couldn't get the sparkle to show up in the pic.

Here's the fab prize 

2 x 'Snowflakes on Pale Blue' Papers (12 x 12)
1 x pack 10 Cards & Envelopes (6 x 6)
1 x pack Red Bling Stones
1 x Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Ripe Persimmon)
1 x metre Red Tartan Ribbon
1 x Little Claire Santa’s Hat stamp
3 x Asstorted Die Cut Sheets (18 colour images)

My other teamies have done some beautiful projects and we'd love you to join in all details are over on the Little Claire blog here.


Monday 1 December 2014

Today it's my turn to post on the Snapdragon Snippets blog: 3 and 3 Under. I've used a fab little file called Mini Fairy Light Houses by Crafty SVG Designs.

These are so easy to make but so effective. Here they are lit up with little electric tea lights.

All the card I've used is from Papermill. I've used some heated snow puff to layer onto the windows and roof. For the main part of the roof I embossed them with an embossign folder and I have used some white frantage to make it look like a light layer of snow. The little snowflakes in the window have been cut on my Explore using some white vinyl. They will look really pretty lit up on my window sill in the house.

They are really easy to make but when you buy the file from the Snapdragon Snippets store you also get a tutorial included with your cut file.

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.

Little Claire November Stamp Set

Today is the release of the Little Claire stamp club set and what a cute set!!

Elephants stamp set

All these for only £8.99. All of the details on how to buy this set is on the link above.

I've made two cards to show off the set

Sentiments are included.


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.

Snapdragon Snippets - Witch Fancy Shoe

And it's also my turn for a project on the Snapdragon Snippets blog.

It's a Halloween card or invitation.

I've used a Snapdragon Snippets file from the SIL store #67670 Witch Fancy Shoe Shaped Large Card.
I've used  Papermill black card as the base and some bright Halloween colours and some mauve Wow glitter embossing powder for this one.


Papermill Project - Natural Autumn Wreath

It's my turn to for the inspire blog post over on the Papermill blog.

I've made a natural wreath card.

Hi Shary here and today I'd like to show you a great Autumnal project. My kids are off for half term next week so this would be a great project to get them involved in and bonus! it's cheap!

Materials needed:

  • Papermill Cream Hammered Card
  • Embossing folder
  • Distress Inks
  • Twine
  • Lots of leaves and a few berries! (Obviously please omit the berries if you're crafting with a small child).
Firstly go out in the woods for a lovely Autumnal walk with your kids and pick up your leaves and berries. You could also use the little pine cones etc. Anything you fancy.
1. Make a blank 5x5 card from the cream hammered card. I've used the hammered as it has a lovely texture and also it is a good heavy weight to hold the wreath. Emboss with an embossing folder.
2. Cut out a ring with the hammered card. I have used two spellbinder dies but you can use anything circular. As long as it fits on your card!
3. Choose your leaves, ideally a lovely assortment of colours. I went a bit overboard here.
4. Carefully punch out your leaves. I only have one leaf punch but I think it would look lovely using several different leaf punches.
5. Gradually build up your leaves onto the ring. I did darker at the bottom. Also in different directions.
6. When you're happy add your berries, cones etc.
7. Distress the edges of your card with distress inks, add twine and gems. Adhere the wreath with 3D pads. A lovely seasonal card.
