Lovely Laurel

Good evening to you all!  It has been another lovely day here today!  I have finished my Clarity DT cards and will post them off in the morning.  Obviously I can't post them on here yet, but I thought I would share the card that Maria Simms showed on the Take 2 Clarity show today.  What a fab couple of shows and some brilliant demos.

This card was made with one of the new Clarity ladies - Laurel and the lovely Laurel Hedge stamps

Stamp Laurel into place first and mask her
Brayer some blue for the sky
And some green for the ground
Punch out a circle and sponge through the hole in yellow for the sun
Stamp the Laurel Hedge round the edges and colour in the leaves
Remove Laurel's mask and colour her legs, arms, face and hat 
For her outfit, I used fusible film for the dress and fusible film and fibre for the coat
Mat onto black then gold card
Die cut leaves from another bit of the gold card


  1. Lovely card as always, Janet. Must admit i am enjoying seeing Maria revisiting some of the older stamps again, it's so easy to forget the lovely oldies and their techniques with all the new stamp releases xxx look forward to seeing what you and the other DTs have been making :) Annie

    1. Thanks Annie. I agree, it is nice to see another way of using the stamps too. I am looking forward to seeing what everyone has done...some great new stamps this time!
