About Me

My photo
Hi I'm Clare, and as you can probably tell by my blog name I love to craft. It is a hobby of mine which I fit in my hectic life whilst working as a teaching assistant in a primary school, looking after my son, daughter and hubby Gary. Not forgetting our two mad springer spaniels, Suzi and Jess.

Dotty

Hi folks, yes dotty by name and dotty by nature! This is weekly my blog post for Bee Crafty. If you have not been fortunate enough to drop by at their stand at Ally Pally this weekend then head over to their online shop by clicking on the above link. This week sees the release of Bee Crafty's new Yuletide collection so if you are being exceedingly organised you will be able to get cracking with your christmas creations.

 

My post this week is not Christmassy at all although I think the same technique could be adapted to give a christmas bauble effect.

For this card I have used:

I made my own mask for this using a piece of chipboard and cutting out a small circle. I then sponged on my dots using spun sugar, seedless preserves and bundled sage distress inks. With the image stamped three times in three different inks I added liquid pearls, a smidge of glitter and garnished with a sentiment and ribbon.

 

If you are at Ally Pally don't forget to stop by at the Bee Crafty stand and give Bev and her team a hello. There are so many fabulous stamp images and sentiments. I bet you can't walk away without a handful!

Happy crafting!

 

Crafty hugs,

Clare x x x
