Claritystampers East weekend

Hello everyone,

Thanks for visiting!  I hope you are doing okay.

I am busy with cards as always these days.  Last weekend I did the Claritystampers East workshops in Bawburgh (Saturday) and Great Blakenham (Sunday).  As always, we had a good time, thanks to all the ladies who come to these workshops, you all help make it a good time.  It never ceases to amaze me how you can give the same example card and set of instructions to a group of people and get such different results.  That is the joy of creativity!

These are the cards we did (well, my version of them!)  All Christmas cards using the small and large Christmas Bauble sets, the large and small Holly and Ivy stamps and the Holly Wreath stencil from Claritystamp

Simply stamped and coloured in (it all goes VERY quiet when there is lots of colouring!!)
The Deer and Fawn round was stamped on a separate piece of card, cut out and mounted on a die cut circle of black, then gold

The Holly Wreath stencil was attached to a piece of card and run through my Grand Calibur, then, with the stencil still attached, squish some versa mark ink through the stencil, remove the stencil then brush with Perfect Pearls

Stamp the Merry Christmas with versa mark, then brush with Perfect Pearls too

Stamp a little bit of the Holly and Ivy stamp in the corners with Distress Ink, then watercolour,

Add a bit more ink round the edge of the square card, then mat and layer

The last card uses the stencil again, but this time in a more random fashion to create the strip along the card.  I used green ink, then added glitter to make the berries red
The large round is stamped and coloured then glittered and mounted on a gold die cut
The Holly and Ivy is stamped along the edges of the base card.

Hope you like them!  Have a wonderful day
