Vintage Pearl now available from Hunkydory!

I loved playing with the New Vintage Pearl collection from Hunkydory on Saturday, its now availabe from Inspirations and Cardcraft Plus, yay!

Here is a new card from Saturday using a folding technique.
I used some Mother of Pearl card, double sided paper, rainbow shimmer mirri, a bit of lace, and the decoupage for a topper (saved the topper for another project!)

Apologies for the photo quality!

Those cute kids again, AND A CANDY REMINDER!

I really need to use up some of the images i have coloured in, so i made a start today.  This is using the cute kids stamp from Lili of the Valley.

I coloured with Promarkers, the punch is a Martha Stewart, Die cut is a Nestability label.

I made the rose using 4 punched flowers. I outlined the image with clear glitter but its not shown up in pics very well.
Thanks for looking.

So who has got my cards, Postman Pat or his black & white cat?

Yep im still sulking with the postie! I didnt manage a full batch of Clarity cards for this months TV show anyway because i didnt organise myself effectively, so it was so much more important that the ones i did get done arrived on time.

So, here are the lessons learned this week

1. Manage my time better next month, use your diary - dipstick!!
2. Dont trust Postman Pat and his guaranteed delivery service, Jess the cat could do better!!!

All stamps are available here at the Clarity shop.

This is done using a variation on the Black Magic technique. The subtle background is done by stamping with versamark and just drying with a heatgun.

White card is pearlised.
Acetate has been stamped with versamark and clear embossed.
Looks nicer in the flesh, the sun kept shining/glaring when i tried to photograph.
Thanks for looking!

Royal Mail have got my TV Clarity cards!!!!

I am soooooooooo annoyed!!!!! I posted some Clarity samples direct to Create & Craft so they would be there on time for Barbara because everything has been crazy this month with kids being off school, work, pick of the week & my tv debut, tons of bank holidays etc. Anyway, i paid a shedload of money for guaranteed Saturday delivery and guess what- according to the track an item page on royal mails website my package is being held for delivery on Monday!!!!!

So i better show some on here instead.

Will show you some more later, i may or may not be calmer by then! Deep breaths Maria.
