Gerbera and Journalling

Good evening ,
A bit of a late one, but I am winding down after a lovely crafty weekend with the Claritystampers Easr ladies at Bawburgh on Saturday and Great Blakenham on Sunday.  It is always great to catch up with everyone and as always we had some laughs and plenty of cake as well as making some fab cards.  We used some new stamps I spotted at the Clarity Retreat as well as one of my all time favourite sets of stamps; the Journalling set.



Both of these cards are done the same way, just that one is portrait and the other is landscape
 Start by blending some yellow inks on the card, then stamp the Gerber twice in diagonal corners.
Stamp again on copy paper to make masks.
Cover the stamped images, the use the stamps from the Journalling set to do the background.
Add a little shadow round the flowers
Remove the masks and colour the flowers with the same yellow ink and maybe a shade darker too.
Ink round the edges and mat onto black.
The little black dots are done by dipping an embossing tool in black paint, then dotting it onto the card (Apparently this is known as 'dip-dotting, which I think is a fabulous name!!)

I am rubbish at remembering to take photos, but rest assured, the ladies all made wonderful cards!

Stamp sets used:
Journalling set

I can't find the Gerbara and Butterfly set on the Clarity website at the moment, but I am sure they will be there soon....

Thanks very much for visiting,

Morrocan lady

Good morning all!

Up bright and early today - it is the Claritystampers East workshop at Bawburgh today and tomorrow is the workshop in Great Blakenham, I am looking forward to seeing everyone again.  I will blog the cards from the workshop on Sunday evening.  Today's card is one we did at Diva Red a couple of weeks ago.  Definitely a clean and simple one.


 I started by die cutting a white circle and stamped the lady and her hat.  Colour her hair and add some lipstick.  Stamp the lady again onto some beautiful designer paper and cut out the hat.  Attach to the stamped image on the card and mount onto a die cut circle of matching card.
I then used the fab Morrocan Tile die twice to cut the same colour card and paper.
Attach the outer part of the card die straight on to the base card
The trickiest part of this is to inlay the inner parts of the paper cut outs inside the outer part of the card.
Once that is done, attach the lady and add some gems.
Really nice and easy
Hope you all have a great day... I'm off to get inky

Dare to be Different!

Good evening,

I enjoyed watching Maria's 'Get in Shape' show today - thankfully not about keeping fit, but about simples shapes for Groovi plates and stencils.  Such a good idea, and so very useful!
I was lucky enough to get the stencils to make samples with:
Framework Circles stencil
Leafy Swirl and Dotty Wave petite syencil


I started by attaching the stencil to a piece of stencil card
Blend black ink though all the circles, apart from one - use pink ink for that one
Keep the stencil in place, and place the circle inners over the circles you don't want to ink, then place the Swirl stencil over one circle at a time and sponge some white paint over the stencil
Repeat for all but the pink circle, add black ink over the stencil for that circle.
Remove all the stencils.
Using a fine black pen, scribble round all the circles
Add a few dots by blending some black ink through the dotty wave stencil
Print the words Dare to be Different on a PC then cut out and mount onto black and add to the crd.
Mount onto black card and then the base card.

Hope you like it,
Janet xxx

Controlled Random..

Hello at last,
I have just realised that it has been ages since I blogged, so I have three cards to show you today.  I am having a wonderful day to myself, I got up early, did the housework and have got the rest of the day to make cards.... prepping for workshops and making samples.  It is going well so far...!

I am sure you will know by now that I like doing inky backgrounds, but the results can be quite random sometimes.  I have just discovered a way of getting some control, this is not my idea, I saw it on an online course I have subscribed to. I am sure many of you will already know about this, but it was new to me.  All the cards below are made using this technique.



 At Christmas, I was having lunch with my Aunt and she had some lovely serviettes, with a wonderful colour combination, so I nicked one to keep for inspiration.
The colours of ink I've used here are Iced Spruce and Dusty Concord, both Distress Inks.  The stamps are from the Snowglobe Outline set
So on with the card..
Start by stamping the snowglobe with a black archival or some sort of permanent ink.
Mask to cover the snowglobe
squish the Iced Spruce ink on a piece of acetate, spritz  lightly with water, then you can pick up the acetate and place the ink where you want it to go.  It still gives a random effect, but you have much more control over where it goes.  Good eh!!  You can add as much or little as you like.
Once you have enough Iced Spruce, repeat the process with Dusty Concord.
Allow to dry, then do some stamping, I added a few little snowflakes from  the set of stamps which comes with the snowglobe , I also added a few circles, by inking the base of a lid and applying to the card.  When you are happy, remove the mask and replace with the opposite mask, so now you have covered the background and exposed the snowglobe.
I used the same colours to make my little scene and black archival to stamp the images.
Paint the base with Dusty Concord.
The Christmas words come from Jayne's Postcard Framer set
 

This card was done in the same way, using the same colour inks
Stamps used:
Journalling set
Gerbera and Butterfly set










...and again, this time with the Chrysanthemum and Butterfly set and the Journalling set
.

Thanks for visiting, I won't leave it so long before I blog again..

A week of Clarity

Good morning,
I have had a week off work and have been thoroughly enjoying myself!  It was the Claritystampers East workshop in Bawburgh on Saturday, then off to Kent to stay with my friend and catch up with all the news, we also went to the Clarity Retreat on Wednesday and Thursday, another chance to meet some lovely crafters and catch up with Barbara and Paul, who both worked hard to make it a lovely couple of days, we did some fab projects over the two days.
It was a bit of a long journey home, travelling on the first Friday of the school holidays is not the best idea!
Then it was the Claritystampers East workshop in Great Blakenham on Sunday, which was lots of fun and lovely Lynne Hammond joined us which was brilliant!  Nice to catch up with her too.

These are the cards we did at the Clarity stampers workshops:

This is a brusho background and the lady is also painted with brusho mixed with a little water.

This lady had a fusible film and fibre hat and die cut flowers

Spread grunge paste through the stencil, allow to dry then paint through the stencil, sand a bit and add some black ink

These are the stamps and stencil used, all from Claritystamp:

Hats 1
Journaling set
Flower Power stencil


I have one more day before I return to work tomorrow, so I am off to make the most of it!  IThanks very much for visiting,

Elements - Fire

Good evening,
I am posting a card tonight made with the 'Fire' elements stamp - but I really think the 'Water' one may have been more appropriate with all the rain we've had recently!



For the main image, I stamped the image with versa mark and heat embossed with gold powder.  I coloured with water based markers, scribbling them on a mat and picking up the colour with a water brush.  I die cut it to a scalloped oval.
For the background, I cut a piece of the Northern Lights designer paper into strips, then cut them in half to make a long triangle.  Find your centre point on the card, then stick all the strips round.

Thanks for popping in, hope to see you again soon.  (I will try and remember to blog a bit more regularly!)

Elements - Water

Hello,

I thought it was about time I blogged again, I have been a bit remiss recently!  I am busy doing samples for the July shows - it's Christmas!!  I always find it a bit difficult to do Christmas cards so early in the year, but I know we have to get ahead if we are going to make enough cards to send out to everyone!  They are fab new stamps coming up, so don't forget to tune in!

Today's card, however is more appropriate for the weather - Water!.  I am a Pisces girl, so water is dear to my heart!  I love 'watery' colours.

Stamp : Water Element
Stencil: Jo's Bubbles
Perga-Glitter


For the background, I found a brusho background I had in my stash, then added more colour using the Jo's Bubbles stencil, inking through in random areas.  I let the ink dry, then drew round the circles with a glue pen and added some glitter.  I used the new Perga Glitters - yes, of course you need them! Layer onto matching card.
On a separate piece of card, I stamped the water element image with black ink and coloured with pencils, then cut it out and layered onto a die cut circle. Attach to the background a finish off with a few gems

Thanks very much for visiting, I hope you enjoy the rest of your day!

Good morning!
I'm up early this morning, the trouble with having cats is that they expect breakfast soon after dawn, which is pretty early this time of year!  It is a lovely morning though, so I don't mind too much.  It is nice and cool, so there is chance to get a few jobs done before the heat starts taking its toll.

I thought I would show you a few tags I've made with one of the latest sets from Clarity, but first a card sample using the same tags set and the gardening set

I stamped the tags out, starting with the biggest in the centre and working down in size towards the edges.
I just stamped and coloured a little scene in each tag.  Just make sure to mask off the one next to the one you're working on.





Here are the other tags...



Thanks very much for visiting, I hope you have a fabulous day!

New Baby Cards

Good evening,

~It has been a busy couple of weekends, with several workshops, all of which have been fun to do.
The cards today are all made from the two new baby sets and the heart stencils (links at the end of the post)

I started by taping the heart aperture to a piece of stencil card, then blended a pink ink through the aperture.
I put the hearts stencil from the basic backgrounds set over the top of the paerture stencil and blended with the same colour ink, then moved the stencil and blended a different colour pink, repeat this with different colours, so have hearts within hearts.  Finally, blend a white pigment ink through the hearts, to soften it all down.
Remove all the stencils, then stamp the washing line across the heart, also stamp it on some separate white card.
Cut the card to size (6x6")
Colour and cut out the clothes on the white card and layer on top of the base
Stamp, colour and cut the little bows and add to the base at the ends of the washing line
Stamp the 'Baby Girl', cut out and add.in place..  Layer on to a pink card then onto the card base.

 
Same again but in green 

and in blue for a boy
 Stamps used:

Adorable baby

New Arrival

Stencils used:

Basic Backgrounds

Heart shape aperture


























and finally one I did for the TV which uses the same idea, but with an all over background, rather than in the heart aperture.

Thanks for visiting, hope to see you again soon! Janet xxx

DT Anniversary

Good morning,
Isn't it a lovely day?  I hope it is as lovely where you are as it is here.  I think spring has to be my favourite season, especially as the sun starts to shine!  I love all the new life and renewal after the winter.
I have just found out on fb that it is 5 years ago today that my first card appeared on TV as part of the Clarity design team - where has that time gone??  It is definitely true that time goes faster as you get older!  I was so excited to be asked to join the Clarity DT, It is such a privilege to be part of the wonderful team at Clarity, in the company of so many lovely talented people.  The team is so much bigger now, since the launch of Groovi - exciting times...

This is one of  the latest card I've done for the DT (later, I will show you the first one...)


I started by using my gel press petite square plate to do the pink square in the middle.  Load up the plate with ink, the dab a bit of damp paper towel over to give it some texture and 'stamp' on to the card.
Using black archival, stamp the pram and the words around the edge
Colour in the pram with pencils
Stamp the bows on a separate piece of card, colour and cut out, then attach to the card.
Mount on to pink card and then onto the base card.

I had never heard of a Gel Press Plate 5 years ago - it is amazing how things move on isn't it?  We have so many more lovely things to fuel our addiction!


This is the first card that was shown
This is the first card which was shown when Barbara first mentioned me as part of the DT

I made this one for the same show, but it didn't get shown
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             The other card was made for the same show, but didn't get shown, I think it has been on the display boards at the shows though.

Thanks very much for visiting
Hope you enjoy your day

Floral Spring and Brusho

Hello everyone,
I hope you are enjoying the bank holiday weekend.  It has been hot and sunny here in Norfolk, I hope it has for you too.  It is good to get out in the garden, the down side is that my eyelids have swollen and I look terrible, I think I have reacted to something!
Anyway, I have also been preparing some cards for upcoming Clarity workshops, so I won't show you those just yet, but I will share some I made for Rossella's shows a couple of weeks ago.


I was a bit short on time (again!) for these, so I had a rummage through my prepared backgrounds and found this brusho one - I am pretty sure this was just the black sprinkled and spritzed, then dabbed.  One half was lighter than the other, so I made that the ground and stamped the Floral Hare in place.  I masked off the bottom with torn copy paper and stamped the little Floral Grass along the paper, avoiding the hare.
I added a bit of shadow under the hare, and a black line along the bottom edge of the grasses, then sat and coloured in all the tiny flowers, this is lovely to do - very relaxing!  I inked round the edges and mounted on black.



The second card is a bit brighter and more spring-like.  I simply stamped and coloured...

The main stamps all come from the Floral Figures set

The word 'Spring' is  an NDC stamp from a while ago

and the birds come from the tiny wee folk sets that were with the outline stamps.

Thanks for visiting and I hope you have sunshine where you are today

F I T Colours!

Good evening,
Thank you for dropping by, I am showing some pages from the delightful little Rhyme-Time Nursery Rhyme Alphabet book from Claritystamp.  This book has a large letter to colour in and a little verse to go with it, along with a small image which has already been coloured, so you have some inspiration if you need it.  I had such a lovely time just colouring these in.  I have a lovely set of Prismacolor pencils which is what I used, along with a blending stump and Sansodor, to colour all the images.  The sansodor doesn't come through the card, so if you wanted to keep all the images in the book and colour, it would be fine.

I love this image, I just added some stamps in the background and inked round the edge with a matching colour ink.















I decided to keep this fairly monotone, I used an oval aperture stencil to frame the lad and his lovely pony, then added some dots round the edges using a dotty stencil



I used the old 'torn copy paper' trick to add the background for this one and added a couple of birds and the grasses at the front.  The words come from the title of the verse in the book, I just cut them out and edged them in black.

I was lucky enough to receive two books, one to cut up and use and the other to keep - I am going to enjoy sitting and colouring the other one, it is sooo relaxing!

Enjoy your evening!

Handbags

Good afternoon,
Very grey and dismal this afternoon here in darkest Norfolk and so cold!!  I thought I would share the handbag card I made for Rossella's show last week, using the Handbags and Purses set of stamps with masks.


I stamped all the bags and purses first, then masked them all.  It is worth taking time to make sure the masks are perfectly in place, otherwise you end up with white bits where you don't want them.
I covered a square round the main bag, then used Distress Oxides to colour the outside frame.  I used blues and yellows. I just sponged the colours over.  I removed the centre mask and just sponged the yellows over the centre area.
I took away all the handbag masks and coloured everything in with pencils.
I decided to give the main bag some texture, so I carefully added PVA glue and sprinkled gold microbeads over the wet glue, then left to dry.
To finish off, I used a fine black pen to outline the centre square and added a bit of gold glitter pen to the bags.  I printed out 'A Girl Cannot Have Too Many Handbags' on my PC, then cut out each word to add to the card.
Thanks very much for visiting, I hope you are having a good day!

Ladies with Hats

Goo evening to you,
I am avoiding a certain song contest at the moment, so thought I would take the opportunity to write a blog post.  The clarity stamp shows are coming thick and fast now, ans I am getting a bit behind with my blogging... This card was one I did for Rossella's show last time, using the Hats 2 set and a piece of designer paper from the New England Fall paper pack

This is a simple card to do.  I used a DL card, then cut the paper a cm smaller, I chose my backing card, then cut a strip of the paper and matted it onto a slightly wider strip of the card and glued that across the larger piece of paper, cut the ends to fit, then mat onto a bigger piece of the backing card and attach to the main card.
I stamped the ladies on small squares of white card, coloured their hair and lips and very lightly coloured their skin.
I stamped them again on different sections of the same designer paper, I added a bit of colour to the hat bands, then just cut out the hats and glued onto the appropriate head.

Thanks very much for stopping by,
Janet xx

Lovely lady

Good morning.

I am off to work soon, but I have time to do a quick post before I go.  This card i one I did using a stencil called Amaryllis  Clarity do a range of lovely ladies, this is one of my favourites.




I started with black card and taped the stencil in place.  Using a stencil brush (a flat ended one, not the normal Clarity brushes) I picked up small amount of Chalk acrylic paint and dabbed lightly where I wanted each colour.
I masked off areas, so the colour was in the right place and used the opaque colours, so it shows up on the black card.
I removed the stencil and allowed it all to dry, then added bits of gold pen to highlight the hair.
I edged with a gold pen and added some gold sequins to finish then mounted on more black card.

Thanks for visiting, Hope you have a good day,

Just Leaves

Good morning!
I hope you are well.  It is still cold here, I have seen some of my posts on fb from a year ago and I was saying how hot and sunny it was.....
I am still catching up with cards from Rosie's show a while back when she was showcasing Tina's lovely flowers and leaves.
One of my favourite things to do is just use one stamp to make the whole design.  I have done that on this card using one of the leaves from the Tina's Butterflies and Dragonflies set


I used the solid square from Sam's Shapes to stamp three squares in different colours (I used my new Distress Oxides for this).  It took a bit of experimenting to get the right level of colour for this, I didn't want it too dark as I wanted to stamp over it.
I stamped the leaf over the top in black, then coloured in some of the little sections, using the same three colours

Fot the background, I blended the same colour inks, then spritzed and blotted, then stamped the leaf, again in the same colours.  I edged both pieces of work with black, then mounted up.

Hope you have a lovely day

Groovi in Lowestoft

Hello folks,
My week off seems to have vanished , why is it that  time off work seems to pass so much quicker than time at work????
I had a lovely day yesterday meeting a new group of ladies in Lowestoft.  We did a Groovi workshop and I really enjoyed it.  The hall was good, the lunch was very nice and apart from a bit of a blip at the beginning, it all went well.

These are the projects we did, no-one finished properly because it is always best to leave parchment to settle overnight, then do a bit more embossing, but there were some beautiful projects well on the way......
My picot cutting still needs more practice, but apart from the I am happy with this one


Thanks very much ladies, hope we can do it again soon.....

Tina's Flowers

Good evening,
I have had a nice day at home today, I have taken the week off work so have been doing lots of pottering and getting jobs done - very satisfying.  I am also prepping for my upcoming workshops and doing a bit of colouring (see Barbara Gray's blog to find out why!)

Today's card is one I did using one of the new flowers sets from Tina Cox.  These are lovely sets, with three sets of flowers in each set and three sizes of each flower.  I used Tina's Flowers 1 for this card


I made the background card first, the grid is embossed using a Hougie board, then I dragged ink pads up and down.

The diagonal piece is a paper from the New England Fall Designer paper pack I added some circles by dipping a lid into some ink and stamping on the paper.

I stamped and embossed the flowers on to paper from the same pack then cut out and stuck together.
The centres have sequins added
The butterfly is also stamped and embossed on the same paper, then glittered
I dotted a few more sequins around to finish.

Thanks for visiting,

Claritystampers East April 2017



Good afternoon,
How is your Bank Holiday going?  It started a bit rainy and dreary here, but it is quite nice now.  I started the morning by going to visit the new village hall in the village where we do our Diva Red workshops to have brunch - very nice it was too - both the hall and the brunch and the company.

Home again now to prepare for a Groovi workshop in Lowestoft - a first for me but I am looking forward to it.  It will be lovely to meet a new group of crafty ladies.

It was the Claritystampers East workshops over the last two weekends, Bawburgh last week and Great Blakenham yesterday...I even took some photos of the cards the ladies made at Bawburgh .  I am not good at remembering to take photos, so it took a bit of nagging, but I am pleased I did, so I will try to remember for the next ones too.

I love the variety - everyone does something a bit different (some always do things alot different - they know who they are!!)

My original, so you can see the detail

Not everyone liked the trees through the stag, so did a solid one instead

My original

I love the different colour schemes..

Snowdrop

Good morning,
An early morning blog from me today!  (Definitely don't get used to that!!) I thought I would share the card I made with the Snowdrop stamp which is the accompaniment to the Cornflower from the previous post...

I am quite a fan of single colour cards, for this I chose green because I was going to colour the leaves green, so I stamped in a green archival ink and cut the card to a slim rectangle.  I coloured the leaves and the very tips of the petals, but left the rest alone.  I think simple white flowers are amongst the most stunning things to look at.
I did edge the card with green, then matted on to dark green card.
For the background, I stamped the wording across the centre, did a bit of splattering and edged with green.

Thanks very much for visiting, I hope you all have a good day - I am off to work now.  Another two of my colleagues are retiring - must be my turn soon!!

Cornflower

Good evening all,
I love flowers but I like wildflowers, simple and beautiful, rather than all the fancy double blooms.  Cornflowers are one of my favourites, I love the colour and the lovely shape of them, so I was delighted to see that this stamp has been revived.  This is an old design from Clarity, now in a different size.

 I decided to have a rifle through the Clarity paper pads to see whether there was one to suit the cornflower and of course, there is.
The back of one of the papers is quite pale, but has all sorts of bits going on in the background.  I stamped the cornflower in blue archival then masked it while I stamped the words in the background.  I tore the bottom edge at an angle, inked round the edges in blue and curled over diagonal corners, then attached it to the front of the same paper.
I did colour the flower slightly, but didn't want it to bet lost, so left it fairly light.

Stamps used:
Wildflowers

Sweet Dreams designer paper pack

You may notice the beautiful snowdrop in the same set - tune in tomorrow for that one

Black Magic Flowers

Good morning!

I am back again after only a day, I have lots of cards to blog, so get used to it (but  only for a little while!)
I saw the 'black magic' technique many years ago and it has been something I keep meaning to do, then we had this lovely set of stamps to use which is ideal for the technique.
You need a fairly solid stamp...
I used  Floribundance from the Special day sentiments set.  This is an old stamp and one of my favourites, I am very happy to see some of the older Clarity stamps making a comeback!


Stamp your image onto black card using a white pigment ink, Leave to dry then colour over the top of the pigment with pencils
 I also stamped the greeting in white ink and matted it over the top.
Easy eh!
I think I intended to add a few doodly dots around, but didn't get round to it!  Maybe on the next one.....

Thanks for visiting,

A Little Grid


Good afternoon!

It's been a good Clarity weekend, yesterday I did the Claritystampers East workshop with the lovely Bawburgh ladies - I will post pics next week, once the Great Blakenham ladies have done the cards.  I even managed to take some photos on the day - quite a palava!
Also it has been lovely to watch Rossella on Hochanda, demoing with Clarity stamps in a completely different way, I will post my samples for that in due course, but thought I had better finish the last lot of samples first!.



I enjoy working with little stamps and the teeny stamps that came with the outline stamps are wonderful, they are still very detailed even though they are so small.
I did a grid card with the stamps from the Stag set.
Basically, I masked off small areas and filled them with little scenes, it is surprising how much stamping you can get into a small area!

Stamp used:
Outline Stag

Thanks very much for visiting, hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend!

Fox

Good evening,

I am a bit late blogging tonight, but just wanted to share my fox with you before I go to bed.
I used another of the lovely aperture stamps, this time the leaf.  Along with the leaf, comes a set of teeny stamps to use to make up a little scene in the aperture.  I stamped the leaf then masked around it and did the scene in using mostly brown inks.
Once done, I removed the mask and stamped around the outside with one of the leaves from the set of teeny stamps.
As is my way, I shaded around the edge with more ink, then matted onto brown card.

Paper and Lace

Good morning to you!
I hope you are enjoying the long weekend break - bit chilly here, but nice to have the extra time off work.
I went to a workshop yesterday, it was lovely to sit and make cards and a canvas someone else had designed, and not to have to think about it too much!  I also realised just how hard it is for small independent retailers to make ends meet, so, if you are lucky enough to have a craft shop in your area, do support them, or they will disappear and that would be very sad!  (I did my bit to help and stocked up.....)

The cards today are the ones we made at Claritystampers East, I may well have blogged similar cards in the past, so will just show the pics today.                                                                                              
The first one is done by sticking strips of patterned paper to a square of card, then stamping and cutting out the vase and flowers

 The same, but in different colours...

The background is done by emdossing the lines, then stamping and dragging ink pads over the debossed side.
Stamp and colour the bouquet














Finally, this one is very much based on one Barbara Gray showed on TV - using a gel press to squish through some lovely lace,

Stamps used:
Bouquets
Urn

Elegant ladies stencil

Hope you all enjoy the rest of the weekend
