About Me

My photo
Hi I'm Clare, I live in the South West of England in the seaside town of Torquay. I adore playing with inks, paints and generally getting messy. It is the calm place which fits in between my hectic life whilst working as a teaching assistant, looking after my son, daughter and hubby Gary. Not forgetting our two mad springer spaniels, Suzi and Jess.

Back to the land of blog


Well here I am back in the land of blog.  Thought I would just share with you some simple cards that I have made (you know the ones when you think oh heck it's so and so's birthday and need to rustle one up pronto). Well have done a job lot to save those emergency moments.  All the cards shown here are made using card-io stamps with a variety of mediums.  I am sure there are a few other ways to go with these stamps but here are a few.





I inked a background onto this card and also used a clarity stencil before stamping on the flowers and used glossy accents to lift up some of the flowers.


This is one of my new favourites.  I stamped these using versa magic chalk inks onto black card, again I used some glossy accents and sprinkled some translucent glitter to add a bit of bling.



Another very simple card.



More versamagic I have only just got these but already feel the need to acquire more colours :-)


I hope you have enjoyed looking at my cards? I am hoping that I can get on a bit more regularly I have lots of new craft stash to try out. Watch this space.


Big hugs to my blog friends.
