4th Day of Clarity Christmas!

Good morning all!

Bright (ish!) and early today - I am off to work soon, but thought I would post this quickly before I go.

Today is day 4 of the Clarity Christmas card week, so I thought I would combine a blog post with my fb post.  This is my card for today, It is another of the samples for TV last Saturday - using one of the fab new Clarity Christmas Rounds sets a lovely combination of stamp and stencil...

I used the Fairy Lights Wreath stencil and rather than ink through it, I drew all round it with a black fineline pen.  I removed the stencil and coloured in with red promarker, then added crystal lacquer, sprinkled a bit of fine glitter over and left to dry overnight (it doesn't take that long, but I find it is the best way for me to not keep poking it to see if it's dry yet!!)
The next day, I just added the Christmas stocking stamp in the centre and coloured in with promarkers and added some glitter to the stocking tops and candle flames.
et voila!
One more day of Christmas to go - then back to normal (which in my case is making more Christmas cards!!)

Thanks for visiting, don't forget to comment, I always enjoy reading them.  Have a great day,

  1. I can't resist poking stuff to see if it is dry either - and it never is! Being me, would have done it the other way around to make sure I got the bauble in the centre.............yes, I know they are clear stamps, but I swear the card moves just as I plonk the stamp down!

    1. I had a plan B, Veronica - just in case...

  2. Another pretty Christmas card Janet! See you soon!! xxx

  3. A lovely crisp card Janet. This is a stencil you could have lots of fun with.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment - I appreciate and enjoy reading them all xxx
