Double Whammy

Hi all,

I have a rather long picture heavy post for you today, its the second day of the release of the new Little Claire Christmas stamps and we have decided to show you not one but two stamps today!!.

So first up is Christmas Silhouette, a very traditional image and as its a silhouette it means no colouring at all!!!. Now I have to admit I was a bit stumped when I first saw this stamp, but once I got going I couldn't stop.

 So for the first sample, I took a wooden frame I picked up from the £1 shop covered it with white acrylic paint, sanded it down and added some gorgeous dotty organza ribbon and Kraft flower. The image was also stamped on Kraft card to give it a more vintage feel, the Poinsettia Die is a Marianne Design. The little sentiment comes with the image.

For the second sample, I stamped the image onto tissue paper which I then burnished onto a candle and added punched borders and ribbon for decoration.

Finally I made a little faux tealight holder, again make a Kraft Poinsettia flower and added a punched border and dotty organza ribbon for decoration

All three items together, they make a fabby little gift set don't you think?.


The second release for today is called Christmas Joy, this stamp has a bit of a folksy feel to it. Now I have to admit I love this stamp and really enjoyed colouring it and making samples with this.

The papers on this card are last years papermania Noel range and I think they just looked fab teamed with the red cardstock. The flower is from a large bag of mixed white flowers from QVC shop (thanks Jan) and some gorgeous dotty organza ribbon (thanks Hazel) to finish.

The papers on this card are from the Papermana Mistletoe Kisses range and again I teamed them with some fab red cardstock. The Die Cut is a Marianne Design and the ribbon was a gift as above.

Well I hope you made it to the end of the post, please pop back tomorrow to see another release, and dont forget to pop over to the Little Claire Blog and see what my team mates have been up to using these stamps.
