I Saw 3 Ships

I decided to make one last Christmas card before the end of the year and here is it. I have made it using Clarity goodies.

I have used the 3 ships and Christmas greetings stamps. Plus the new Artisan inks on the inside. 

Inside the card I have used the inks to create a bit of an ethereal scene of the 3 ships inside. Then die cut the bauble dies so that thre ships can be seen through them. The front is then decorated very simply with ribbon bows and faux stitching round the edge of the die to highlight them. Just a nice clean and simple design, I hope you agree.

I wish all my visitors a Happy New Year and hope you visit my blog sometime,

Paper Piecing

     Gone Fishing

Spot of Golf

I made these a couple of days ago when I went and had a crafty evening with a friend. Playing with her stamps from Woodware. 

 Very simply done using the paper piecing technique. 

By stamping the image again on the patterned paper and cutting it out.

 And adding a few die cuts that match the theme.

I have used just a bit of copic colouring to the image.

I love the words that come in the stamp sets too.

They were so quick to do and perfect mans cards too.

Framed and Old

It's time for a new challenge at Creative Artiste.

My make this month is something I actually made a while back and have decided it's about time I put it to good use.

This is a canvas frame decorated using my melt pot and utee. I love playing with my melt pot. The flowers are die cut paper and then dipped in utee. The body form die die cut then the front piece is a clarity stamp stamped into poured utee. Finally the ticket is high lighted with poured and stamped utee.

The background of the frame is book pages which have then been stamped over and the edge of the frame has had utee dripped round it for for a textured effect.

Please pop over to the blog and see what ideas my team mates have designed for you.

Time to say goodbye to summer with my project for this months challenge at

Our sponsor this month is
Dusty Attic.

The fishing net piece is some thing I have had for a few years and decided it needed a bit of updating, so I have taken a piece of canvas board and used some serviette decoupage and modge podge to make the background. The of have attached the fishing net to the board. The 2 Seahorses are real, I have had them for years too, And so are the sea shells and seaweed, can't go to a beach without bringing home some shells.

Just a few words added to complete my project. Please pop over to the challenge blog to see lots more creative ideas and to say hello to our new DT members.
