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 an outreach support worker, looking after my son, daughter, foster son and hubby. Not forgetting our gorgeous springer spaniel, Suzi.

Seasons greetings!

Hi it's Clare here again with a little bit of Bee Crafty inspiration and like it says on the tin, I've gone a a little seasonal with some of The Yueltide collection stamps. You will will see this greeting pop up quite a bit over the coming weeks. I absolutely love it. It is such a good size and stamps fantastically.


For this card I used:

Seasons greetings stamp

Fir tree stamp

Beautanicals ferns stamps

Distress inks

Embossing powder


To make this card I masked with a circle aperture and a moon so that I could ink in my scene using festive berries distress ink. After that, with my circle mask remaining, I stamped on the ferns using black ink and heat embossed with clear powder. I removed the mask and stamped on the sentiment and the fir tree and once again heat embossed.


That's me for this week. I expect all of you are busy getting ready for that special day so thank you for taking the time to look at my blog. I look forward to hearing your comments.

Crafty Christmassy hugs,
