Fun Christmas


Hello everyone this months Clarity stamp and stencil challenge is CHRISTMAS my thought to this was lets do something other than a card so I got my die machine out lets make a wall plaque I will put list of stuff I used to make this
Grand calibre die cutting machine
Spell binders largest circle dies
Ribbon /distress ink pads antique linen
Adirondack ink pads Pitch black / Denim blue
Clarity stencil brushes /Clarity hill masks
Clarity Jaynes Christmas stamps
Glue pen / Glamour dust /promarkers
Clarity A4 theother card
Dish to draw around
Pinflair glue gel/ poky tool

Lets get started

 

I used the two largets circle dies one in side the other put the other card through the machine
 


Now with stencil brush and antique ink brushed over to give a vintage look
With a bowl I drew around on another piece of A5 the other card as did not have a die that was big enough to fit between
I did my first stamp using the black ink Added the child and masked her


Put my snow man in so looked behind child

Stamped two of the back ground on scrap the other card and the child and snowman I put this a side

with blue ink and stencil brush  I added the sky brushed over parts where felt needed highlights then with hill mask put it in areas around snow man and child just to give very faint mounds of snow more blue towards the bottom even as I'm putting the ring around parts
With promarkers colour your stamped areas and the pieces you put to the side

I cut out different sections of the  extra stamped pieces so the top one would have les to it than the one below snow man I did the hat scarf face snow man put all theses together with pinflair glue gel leaving to dry once dry I added glue pen to the areas I wanted the dust give good shake after. with a pokey tool I put a whole in the top of this but making sure would not be shown once put ring on


To add ring I used big blobs of Pinflair glue gel but if you have foam tape will work mounted this put a side to dry when I was happy completely dry add your ribbon well I hope you enjoyed this Thank you for visiting my blog


We Three Kings


Hello everyone this months Clarity groovi  challenge is CHRISTMAS my idea was  these stamps I bought to make cards for a friend so thought would stamp them on to the Indian summer, but I do have to confess that I stamped this with permanent ink, left all day; thought lets get going - got quite a bit of the work done but, whats all this black - it had smudged and completely ruined  it all. So I started again; we are only human, mistakes do happen, I say. Hopefully we learn by them so wanted to do exactly the same but messed up so instead of starting g again I did it different, You will notice the corners are different but with the stamping I used embossing powders instead; I was so cross with myself that forgot to take another lot of photos  so I will put a list of what I used below
Clarity starter groovi kit
Groovi A5 circles
Landscape plate
Nested scallop circle plate
Tina Henna corners 2 plate
A4 Nested circles frilly frame plate
Indian summer parchment
Clarity stamps we three kings and verse
Northern lights papers
Tolls perforating / ball tools / snips
Clear embossing powder /heat gun
Versafine onyx black ink pad /talcum powder
Tumble dryer sheet
Clarity light box
Soft mat or pergamano purple mat


Lets get started


With the brightest shiniest side of your parchment rub your tumble dryer sheet and the filly circle plate put your ring in place

 


Now with your parchment on the front sprinkle bit of talc and with clean brush take the talc off. with Versamark ink pad stamp your images heat emboss but do be careful not to hold the gun to close


Now back to the reverse side of parchment  and the nested scalloped circles add your 4 circles
Add another lot of circles inside the other add scallops to the inside of them then two opposite corners add the scallops edge the other two I took the design off the Henna plate do the edging around the other two circles  with the big circle floral on henna plate add part of it between your circles Now with starter kit and landscape add your sand dunes

 
on the reverse of parchment and your soft side of mat do your white work but be very patient it will become white do some let it rest come back just keep resting between whitening it be worth it in the end

With perforating tools and mat perforate your holes all around the outside of image then inside your circles With my snips I did my picot edge around the out side first then I did the inner circles now I mounted it onto northern lights paper  hope you enjoyed this thank you for visiting my blog

Christmas

Hello everyone this months Clarity Groovi Challenge is WINTER FLORALS I thought I would get Jaynes lovely poinsettia  plate out for this so nice to build them up which I have done here I will put list below of what I used to make this project

Clarity starter groovi kit
Groovi Border frame plate /boarder nested tags plate
Boarder perforating plate
Jaynes poinsettia plate
A4 Nested circles and frilly frame plate
Clarity A6 frame plate
Clarity light box
Double side fine tape / Clear foam tape
Perforating tools /snips /  embossing tools /Black board
Clarity Summer parchment / Normal parchment
Faber castell polychromo colour pencil /Tumble drier sheet

Before I start if you are new to parchment just few tips use a tumble drier sheet on the side of the parchment that you will be doing your scoring this will help your tools glide use this side for  white work use the soft side of the board for white work and a soft mat for your perforating which is done on the front of your work snipping on the front as well. when using the coloured parchment  your white work and scoring on the brightest shine side



With the A4 circle score your circles


On normal parchment do two full images of the poinsettias . I used scrap parchment to make the levels of the flowers I made four
to your frame add your ferns every other one
make your tag with the centre of the parchment this is where I changed thing did not think the merry Christmas showed enough so I did another centre piece of the tag and added the letters from the A6 plate frame. With the perforating plate and no 1 tool I added dots to the boarder of my tag
With perforating mat and two pin tool went around my frame and tag


Add coulr to the poinsettias and the frame now perforate the flowers

With the parchment scissors or snips that I use picot all your pieces I added my frame with the double sided tape on the berries to the base card then poinsettias  now build up your flowers using the transparent foam tape hope you enjoyed this thank you for visiting my blog

Winter Pancy Box


Hello everyone this months Clarity stamp and stencil challenge is WINTER FLORALS my idea for this was last Christmas was given this box with truffles in thought keep that for my stash might come in handy which now has give you a list below what I used to make this lets get started

Box to decorate
white tissue paper /Clarity the other card
Distress ink pad wild honey / sage green
Adirondak pitch black ink pad
Pinflair glue gel / MOD PODGE matte glue
Glamour dust crystal / old course nail file
Anitas 3D clear gloss finish /Promarkers
Clarity Pansy stamp from the set of multi flower stamps
Clarity leaf stamp from Jaynes rose set  
old paint brushes for glue and varnish



  Shown pictures of this from top and side so you can see what I have done
 
With the base of the box ruff it up with the old file wipe off the dust rub the Green ink pad over it leave to dry
white tissue paper scrunch few layers brush the lid with the Mod glue add the tissue then go over with the glue again put a side to dry

Now stamp multiple pansy's and Leaves

Box is dry so distress it with the  honey ink pad add straight to the tissue paper
 

Colour your flowers and leafs with promarkers colour just past the flower and leafs so when you cut out if you miss a bit not got white card left behind

With pin flair glue and cocktail stick add blobs of the it on the bottom of the flowers mount them up till your are happy don't press them down as you want some height then again with one layer of the leaves around the pansy's wait till dry need to put work on old paper so don't splash any think that don't want to ruin
With an old plate brush mix water with the 3d gloss just to thin it slightly brush all over the flowers leaves and tissue paper then very lightly while still wet sprinkle the glamour dust over the flowers hope you enjoyed what I have made Thank you for visiting my blog xx

Roses


Hello everyone this month Clarity Groovi challenge is ALL THINGS JAYNE NESTORENKO so I chose Jaynes lovely rose for this wanted to show a bit more of the parts I have struggled with the picot and cutting as I am still learning myself hope you enjoy this will put list of the stuff I have used

Clarity parchment
Clarity Groovi Jaynes roses plate
Clarity groovi Jayne frame plate
 Groovi Tina A4 square Flowers and butterfly plate
Groovi starter kit
Groovi border perforating plate
 Clarity groovi boarder plate Henna / banner boarder plate
Grovi boarder plate holder
Black groovi board /
 tools snips two pin perforating tool / single perforating tool
Thin double side tape / faber castell poyochromo colour pencils
New England fall papers /Tumble drier sheet


Before we start use tumble drier sheet on the side you do all your white work and scoring as this will help your tools glide so this is the reverse side of parchment  you use the front side of your work for perforating and snipping out  soft side of board for perforating and white work hard side scoring and colouring hope this helps



 
Lets get started just score the out sides of the frame of the plate

Add your rose to the centre of the frame

 
Add Happy birthday from the frame plate
 
Back using the rose plate again I added roses and leaves around the inside of the plate But not around the Happy birthday





Using boarder holder  plate I added the shape from Henna boader plate to the out side of the frame
Now with the banner border plate I put part of it to fit in around the roses

Now  your white work a little at a time be patient don't do to  much  at a time other wise will  buckle the parchment Then add colour on the reverse but on a hard side of the board. Now with the no 1 tool  and perforating  Boarder plate add dots to the corner I'm afraid I made mistake so got Tina plate out of flowers and made a moth to put over this part we learn by our mistakes



Now to the part I find hard with the two pin perforating tool and your parchment facing the front go around your flowers and leaves and around the outside of the banner and in between the shapes on the outside of frame you can also do around the  very edge I use the snips I find this easier than the scissors but what you get on with is the best I did my picot cutting around the flower first then using fine double sided strong tape added to my papers hope you enjoyed this thank you for visiting my blog
