About Me

Nottinghamshire, United Kingdom
My name is Clare I live in Nottinghamshire and work in education supporting students as my full time job but like to make cards, craft and plan as a hobby. I have recently taken up arigurumi crochet, the perfect autumn/winter hobby. I have also decided after a number of years off to pick up my guitar and learn to play again so due to metal strings and crochet hooks the ends of my fingers are slowly toughening up.

Smiley Miley Giraffe

Created this cutesy little chap for a friend who is due her baby in a few weeks. She told me the theme for the nursery was jungly/safari animals. So here he goes xx

I decided to make it approx. 6" square using a box frame.  I layered a piece of white card onto a really dark chocolate brown card for the base and then used another die to layer up three other "giraffe" shades in card from my stash.

I printed the giraffe onto card and die-cut him using one of my favourite dies. I printed him out again just so I could 3D his face.

I die cut using a la la land banner die in two of the coordinating cards and stuck them to the inside of the frame to give depth to the image. I stuck some of the hearts that were a bi-product of the die onto the image just for fun.

I've been doing a lot of colouring lately, which I love but it made a nice change to use printed images.

I love it, she loved it, hope you love it too.

Thanx Sis

Another little card for my friend but this time for her sister.

From back to front the background is a print from a crafters companion cd, as is the little hidden tag and envelope. There's also a heart doily layered in. 

The image is a Saturated Canary called Secrets and I love it x it was coloured using Graph It pens for the skin in 4115 & 4145 and Spectrum Noir pens in PP2 & TB1for the clothing and bunting. I coloured it to represent the two sisters. The hair on the red head was Graph It 3125, 3170 & 3190 and the one with pigtails was Spectrum Noir EB1, EB2 & EB7. I fussy cut the image and stuck it using mini foam pads to give the card some dimension. 

It's very girly but I love it.

Of all the walks

This CAS card was been made for a friend to give to her dad before he walks her down the aisle. 

She'd seen a quote she liked so we tweaked it slightly. 
I layered black card and some patterned toning blue papers. Then printed two footprints one for her and one for Dad and die cut a simple scallop circle around them. I think it looks really simple but effective. 

and here's is the verse... 

Dad loved it, I love it, hope you do too
