Up on the Clarity roof.

Good morning!
I have to apologise for being a bad blogger again recently, it's been a bit manic with shows etc, Scotland was fantastic as was Donny and Harrogate- especially the karaoke crafting, you can't say the Claritystamp team don't know how to have a giggle!
Speaking of Clarity...
This is using the Rooftop stamp from the Twas the Night series. 
The poinsettia die is from Tim Holtz, the big pearly brads are from The Hobby House, the background shape is half a card blank from Craftwork Cards.

Hope you like it!

Clarity clean & simple

Good morning, hope you are keeping warm and well.

Today's card is another using the Clarity Maple leaf set.
I wanted to do a clean & simple card with this set, so here it is.
I used my GENUINE Splodge Away mat as a stamp pad pallet so I could mix the colours without contaminating my inks.
Hope you like!

And if your wondering about the Splodge Away remark...
Yes as expected, a couple of companies who are seriously lacking their own original ideas (and integrity)have decided to jump on the band wagon by attempting their own inadequate version.  I feel quite sorry for the poor people who have mistaken it for Splodge Away.

Autumn and leafy

Good morning!
Hope you had a good weekend.

My card today is using the new Maple Leaf set from Claritystamp.

I stamped the background with versamark and then added the autumnal colour inks randomly-you know how I like random!
The scroll is from the Artist remountable set also from Clarity.

Clarity Vintage Boy Racer.

Good Morning!
I have been waiting absolutely ages to share today's classroom kit from Claritystamp....
My workshop gang know how much I loved the old alphabet set, but the new Letterbox set is totally fabuuuuuulous! Everybody should have it, if you want to see what Barbara will do with it then tune in to create & craft at 11am today (Saturday). 

I used the solid square and the single box together to make the Chequered flag panel and then the letters for the banners, I couldn't find a modern sporty car die/stamp only classics so I took advantage of the versatility of the stamps and changed the plan from boy racer to vintage boy racer, thought it might be nice for a bloke of a certain age, what do you think?

Hobby House Christmas

What a busy couple of weeks it has been, no time to blog unfortunately.
But Im back now...
This is a card I made for Creative Cardmaking for my Diary page.
 The goodies are all from The Hobby House, all the new Christmas releases are now available.
I trimmed around the holly wings and pulled them out a little for extra dimension.
Hope you like it!
