Playing with Clarity Stamps

Afternoon All

I hope you have all had a lovely day today.  Hubby went back to work today so I was determined to get some crafting done for me as well as DT work.  I have made 5 cards today and thought I would show this one to you as this I made because I wanted to have a play with some of my Clarity stamps.  I haven't used the flower stamp before so had a play.  I am quite pleased with how it turned out.


Recipe & Method

1.  Base card is pearlescent bronze card which I have scored and folded to make the base for an easel card.
2.  Using my Spellbinder scalloped rectangle die I have cut out the first layer in cream pearlescent and attached to the card.
3.  Using my Spellbinder scalloped rectangle die I have cut out in Neenah card.
4.  I stamped "Flower" and using scrap piece of paper stamped it again and cut out the "O" to use as a mask.  I then stamped some flowers and leaves inside the "O".  I then stamped the sentiment and using the large swirl stamp stamped part of this on the left hand side.  Then distressed around the card using Big & Juicy Foilage, the yellow ink.
5.  The inks I have used for this are, Big & Juicy Foilage to stamp all the images.  I have used Adirondak in Lettuce, Mountain Rose and Butterscotch.
6.  The stopper on the base of the card is a piece of textured card with a strip of pearlescent cream.  I have coloured the twine using Big & Juicy  and made a bow.  The 2 sunflowers are from my stash.
7.  To finish off I have added pearls and gems from my stash.

Thank you for stopping by Today
