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.

Clare DT - Maple Leaves

Good morning to you all and what a lovely sunny one it is too! After the weather this week has been very dull and gloomy the sun is a welcome sight. Well it's my turn at Bee Crafty today to share my blog. Remember to get youself over to the website with a super 20% this weekend it certainly is worth a visit.

My card seems to reflect the rather autumnal feel of the weather this week.



For this card I used:

Beautanicals - Maple outline

Beautanical - Maple solid

Wordage - Family Masterpiece

Distress inks

Embossing powders


I started by stamping my Maple outline and heat embossing, some with white embossing powder some with clear embossing powder. With stormy sky and tumbled glass I blended on to the corner of the card. With the same distress inks I stamped using the solid Maple stamp.




Don't forget to head over to Bee Crafty and bag yourselves a bargain. Thank you for visiting me today. Wishing you all a fantastic weekend whatever you may be up to x x x


Happy crafting,
