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.

Happy New Year Bloggers

Happy new year to you all, I hope you have had an amazing christmas and enjoyed the New Years celebrations. I for one have enjoyed the rest and feel recharged from being off work. I could come close to say that I could quite get used to hibernation and happily shut myself away for another couple of weeks. Alas this is not to be as it is back to work for me on Monday. Boo!


Well on my return to blog land I bring with me my latest DT make for Bee Crafty.


For this card I used:

Inspired by davinci - science of beauty stamp

Inspired by davinci - Script stamp

Inkables mask - damask

Wordage stamp - joy is a flower

Distress inks




I stamped the image first and did a second stamp on a post-it to make a mask. For the background I used bundled sage, through the Inkables mask I sponged iced spruce. The script stamp was stamped with antique photo. I then smugged antique photo around the outside of the card before matting and layering. I used some flowers from my stash but Bee Crafty have a great selection of flowers to choose from.


That's my first blog of 2015 with many more to come. Wishing you all an amazing crafty year!


Crafty hugs,

Clare x x xx
