Filigraphy Framer

Welcome to Sunday crafters and I'm having a really lazy one today as I'm still in my onesie!

I thought I'd better blog another one of my projects from the last Clarity show before the next Clarity weekend is upon us.  The design team have already got their goodie packs to create artwork to inspire you so don't forget to tune in on Saturday 30th November for In The Classroom show and Sunday 1st December for the Stamping with Clarity shows.

Here's my artwork:

Materials used:
Coloured with promarkers

The shapes all fit into the centre of the framer so you can choose which one you use and as you can see the framer fits nicely around itself creating an eye catching and interesting picture to colour.

Thanks for popping by today and hope you liked my project.  See you next time!

What can you see in the stencil?

Good morning crafters and welcome to a new day.  Will it be a crafty one for you?

My card today was created using the lone tree stencil from lesson 22 which we saw in this weekends "In the Classroom" show.

(click on the picture to take you to the Clarity website)

I wanted to try something different with the stencil and found that if you turned it on it's side that there were two yacht sails and the water.  It did take a bit of masking to get the different colours on the sails and also to get the hull and mast of the yacht in the correct place, but thanks to the wonder of post it notes it didn't hold me back!

Materials used:

Stencil - lone tree (7"x7")
Adirondack inks - red pepper, sunshine yellow,
sunset orange, pool, citrus & stonewashed
Glamour dust - crystal

I hope you have fun playing with your stencil, I wonder how many other things can be seen and created using it?  Please post your pictures on the Clarity fan page as we'd love to see them!

Christmas Bauble

It's all go for me this weekend, starting with the new Clarity Stamp challenge today, then we have Barbara Gray "In the Classroom" tomorrow and again with the Clarity shows on Sunday.  Whilst all of this is going on I will be with my bezzie Hazel at a workshop in Coventry all weekend with the lovely Clare Charvill making something wonderful with Graphic 45 papers and products.

Who said craft was meant to be a hobby, it's more like a full time job these days!!!

Back to the challenge and I think this one is going to be a popular one with you all.  Remember only Clarity stamps and products can be used though.

I decided to create a Christmas bauble, but the other design teams members have loads more inspiration on the challenge blog.

Materials used:

Nestability - scalloped square
Stamps - Twas the night
Coloured with promarkers
Gilding flakes - pirate treasure
Distress ink - antique linen

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you've enjoyed my project for today.
