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.

Merry christmas everyone!

Hi blog land here I am with my rather Christmassy Bee Crafty blog. I didn't post anything last week as I had a rather crazy brainstorm to decorate my daughters bedroom. She is now settled into her new room for christmas, I have finished work and can now relax a little before the big day.

I have posted 2 cards this week to make up for not posting last week. Bee Crafty have a fantastic range of Yuletide stamps so why not take this opportunity to get ready for next years celebrations. There is 20% off Bee Crafty Stamps until Monday 22nd December so why not take the opportunity to set yourself up for some new year projects.

To make this card I have used:

Yuletide fir tree stamp

Yuletide snowflakes

Yueltide seasons greetings

Backdrop borders grasses

Embossing powder

Salty ocean distress ink



For this card I used:

Yuletide holly swirl stamp

Seasons greetings stamp

Can I take this opportunity to wish you all a very merry christmas! I hope you've all been good and Santa brings you lots of crafty goodies. I'll be back in the new year with some more Bee Crafty inspiration.


Christmas Crafty Hugs,

Oh Christmas Tree!

It's Clare here once again for Bee Crafty and I have another christmas themed card for you. I thought that I would try something on craft card this week.


For this card I used:

Yueltide christmas tree stamp

Yueltide seasons greetings stamp

Inkables off set dots mask

Dylusions White linen ink

Distress ink

Liquid pearls

Embossing powder



I started off with my craft card and the Inkables template and dabbed through some white linen dylusions ink with a sponge. After that I stamped the tree and sentiment with watermark ink and heat set with a pearly embossing powder. With festive Berries distress ink I brushed around the edge of the card. After matting and layering I added my favourite little liquid pearls to the tree in red and green to the tree and some random opal white to the outer edge. Finally I added some gems from my stash for a bit of bling.



Thank you for having a look at my post today.


Crafty christmas hugs,
