Well Christmas Eve and all is ready here...well it will be when Amy arrives. We are going out with Amy and her young man, Matthew tonight to the pub and I am really looking forward to a lively evening!
I thought I would blog the three remaining cards from the last clarity show at the beginning of December.
The first used the cicle aperture and the chrysanthemum stamps.
I managed to bend the sentiment so it fit round the shape of the circle too.
I was glad I had spent a bit of time cutting out the masks for the chrsanths and leaves for the other card and that I kept them!!!
The circle aperture is lovely and with the insert makes it a bit different
The next card I did used the stencil of the flowers which I ran though the grand calibur onto a piece of pearlescent card. Then whilst the stencil was still in place I brushed over the surface with different coolours of distress inks to give it that floral feel.
I then removed the stencil and wanted a piece of card to mount this onto. The card out of the packet of the stencil was there....perfect! and I didn't even need to cut it!
I stamped the Congratulations in Cobalt blue archival and added a gem in each corner to finish it off.
For my final card I cheated a bit and decided to repeat a card I had made before for the Clarity Challenge Blog. It was the one I did using Kasha.
I did update it a bit and used the corner stamp instead of peel offs and used the arch aperture stencil to stamp her into. I also used the clarity wall stencil which I didn't have to my disposal when I last made this card. I also added a sentiment.
I was pleased with how it had turned out and think that it is better second time around!
Anyway I must away as I have my girlie about to arrive.
Have a great Christmas and I will look forward to you leaving me a comment if you get to visit me over the Christmas period.
Happy Christmas Crafting.
