Claritystamp Challenge - Build a Scene

Wow what amazing entries in the last Challenge.  Well done to the winner and the Top 5 - so difficult to choose with all the talent out there.

This months Challenge is Build a Scene and you will notice fabulous inspiration from the Design Team.

My project needs little explanation other than to say I used Theuva card, Vintage Photo Distress Ink and an abundance of Clarity stamps.

Take the opportunity to sit down and enjoy a bit of "me" time before the xmas madness begins and work on a scene to enter into the Challenge - £50 voucher up for grabs.

Merry Xmas all and thanks for popping in, I appreciate all your lovely comments.

Fussy and Fancy

Morning folks - gorgeous morning who would think it's almost December?

I have a couple of friends (lovely ladies!) on this Design Team albeit on the opposite team.

I follow their projects closely each month and find myself drawn more and more to this Challenge.

I've decided to enter my "Shop Window" for this Challenge which is made using Creative Expressions stamps and embossing powder - some of it glittery!

The flower in the corner was made using the corner stamp which I embossed and cut out and then built up into a flower.  The background I made using ribbon.

I'm very keen on the finish of my projects so therefore have also attached photos of the back of the project and the central bit where I covered the acetate with ribbon.

Claritystamp Challenge 9 - Christmas

Thanks to everyone who entered our Challenge last month for the Winter theme.  So many fabulous entries which makes it extremely difficult to choose a top 5.  Congratulations to the lucky winners, very well deserved.

Not a lot of blogging or crafting for me over the last 2-3 weeks as we moved house last week.  My Craft Room is still in boxes but I was able to make my sample for the Clarity "Winter" Challenge before we moved.

My little bit of inspiration is a card and bauble to send to someone special.  A Xmas card and gift in one.

I so enjoyed making the bauble as it was something a little different for me.  Painted with Grandma's Teacup paint (I love that name) then gold embossing and lots of masking to make the little picture in the O of joy.  For the bauble on the card I drew around the MDF bauble onto blue card and cut it out.

There's such a lot of inspiration on the blog this month and I hope you have time to enter for the chance to win the Claritystamp Voucher of £50.

I'm off to the NEC next week to catch up with lots of Crafty friends and the Clarity Team.
