New from Little Claire - Silhouette Cat Birdhouse Tree Outline Stickers


Brand new from Little Claire are four sheets of outline stickers based on the recent silhouette stamp releases.  Over the next few days I'll be sharing some cards I've using the stickers.

Today's card was made using the 'Silhouette Cat Birdhouse Tree' outline sticker sheet which you can find here on the Little Claire website.  There are three separate images on the sheet plus some beautiful border stickers - I've used one of the left hand side of my card.

The sentiment I've used is from the 'March Flowers' stamp set which is here.

The background to my design is a piece of the beautiful paper from the Ombre Paper Stack which is here on the website.

New Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge - World Wildlife


We've got a new challenge today on the Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge and this week our theme is 'world wildlife' - for all the details about the challenge, have a look here on the challenge blog.

My card was made for a demo I did yesterday at the stamping club I belong to.  I was asked to demonstrate masking and I decided to include reverse masking together with the more traditional type of masking.

I die cut an oval from a piece of card, placed this over a square and white card and then applied three shades of Distress Inks through the aperture.  I used a circle die cut from a post-it note for the sun.

Finally I stamped 'Silhouette Elephants' from Little Claire over the inked oval, keeping the mask in place.  The stamp can be found here on the Little Claire website.
