My First Creative Plaque

Hi Bloggers!

Well, today I wanted to share something a bit different with you all. Hope you like it :)

For a swap on an online stamping group I belong to, we had to decorate a plaque for a swap. I chose the theme  'Sewing Room'. It involved stamping of tissue paper and using Modge Podge! I loved it - was real messy. 

Please see the YouTube link that shows you the technique.

The stamping group can be found at :

Then, using inks and other types of glues and embellishments I started to put it all together. The colour theme was black and white with a hint of red. I wanted a verse in the centre, so selected one and stamped that onto card and used red ink around the edge to make it stand out. I love the baby cotton reels as well. I used cotton ribbon printed up as a tape measure to hang it up by :)

Here is the photo of the completed project. Hope you like it. I don't think it is bad for a first attempt and I hope that Pauline, my partner in the swap likes it.

So what crafting are you all up to? Please leave me a comment and let me know.

Catch you all soon :)

Sharing some more cards - Little Claire's - Part 2

Well, it is such a beautiful day - but what am I doing? I am indoors CREATING! LOL
I am making something a bit different which I will share in a few days time.

I thought I would share some more of my cards made with the Little Claire's stamps.

I just love the little owl stamps - must use them more!

This was one of their club stamps and it wasn't really a favourite of mine, until I made the card. Took a bit of colouring and some nice glittery patterns finished it off nicely.

Another club stamp in my favourite colours - purple!

The last share for today is this smashing card that was a stamp for the queens diamond Jubilee in 2012. I just love it. I sent it to a friend in America and made another for a UK swap. Not sure what I will use it for in the future - any ideas?

Anyway Bloggers. Hope you all have a great day.
