Claritystamp Challenge Blog - Mr & Mrs

I started this Anniversary card with a square of pale blue Bazzill basics card and then stamped the large flourish stamp with black Adirondack in the centre.   
I felt there were too many gaps so stamped the small flourish stamp in between with the same ink.  Finished them off with a few dots and lines of a white gel pen.

I love using Panpastels so stamped the musical notes with Versamark and used blue Panpastel over the top.  The same Panpastel was used to shade the edges of the card after using the corner rounder.

I then cut 4 hearts with my Cricut machine, 2 slighter larger in black card, to layer the white hearts on to.  One of the white hearts was stamped with the Clarity Birdsong stamps again with black Adirondack ink.  Clouds were then added to the hearts with the same Panpastel used on the backing card.  The Birdhouse and sun were also coloured using Panpastels.

I recently bought the Happy Words set of Clarity stamps which I find so useful - these we're used to stamp the sentiment in the other heart.

Stamps used:
Large leafy swirl
Small leafy swirl
Birdsong set
Happy words

Another Twinchie

Here's my second Twinchie of the day - very simple compared to my earlier post.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog I really appreciate it xxx

Twinchie - for the brand new Challenge

Here's one of my entries for the brand new Twinchie Challenge.  Thanks to Bev for setting it up and thanks also to the Team of the original Twinchie Challenge and good luck with your individual ventures.

This Twinchie started life as a 2" square white piece of card.  I stamped and embossed the sentiment then added blue ink to my brayer and used the crumpled paper technique for the background.

The embellishments were made from shrink plastic - most definitely a labour of love!!!

On to my next one.

Thanks so much for looking and for leaving your comments.

I made this card using my Sheena Douglass Magnolia stamp and one of my favourite mediums Panpastels.
I made the card for a very special friends birthday. Really hope she likes it.

The theme on the Fussy and Fancy Challenge is "Anything Goes" - I thought this would make a good entry.

Pop over and have a look at their website on the link below.
