In the Garden

For this card I've used the Little Claire 'In the Garden' stamp - stamped once and coloured and then the birdhouse was stamped again and decoupaged.  The sentiment I've used is from the 'A Little Bird Told Me' set.  The paper is from Trimcraft Hideaway pad - it's actually one sheet which is double sided so I cut my piece to size first, then in half and covered the join with some ribbon.  I've added some Card Candy and the card blank is from Craftwork Cards.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Creative Craft Challenges - 'pretty blossoms'
Charisma Cardz - 'it's all about flowers'
The Poodles Parlour - 'bird's eye view'


  1. A lovely card Helen. Can I ask you a question about the Gardening Stamp for July for Little Claires? The greeting, does it fit any size of circle punch? I can't get it to fit mine so ended up cutting it out by hand. I think it would have been better to do it with a circle punch. Your thoughts?

  2. Hi Colette I've used the circular sentiments (the others are a similar size to the July club stamp) with my circular Nestalibities and have sometimes cut them out too. Because I stamp and emboss all my images, I have a raised edge which makes the cutting easier. If you look on the LC website, it does actually say that the Claire's Sentiments were designed to work with Nestabilities. Hope that helps!
