Trees with Clarity

I'm entering this card in the Clarity Stamp Challenge which this month is Trees.

I used my gelli plate, a stencil and moon mask to create the background and used the boy stamp and one of the word chains. I used the round blending tool to add a bit more depth to the edges and a white pencil to highlight the tree branches. I then just mounted it onto black card and then onto a white 8 x 8 card blank.

Winter Walks

I think I will be needing a few Winter Walks to blow the cobwebs away and get over all the food over Christmas.

Here is my card for our Winter Walks theme at CD Sunday this time. Carol has chosen this time around and what a lovely theme for this time of year.

I've used the following two CDs.

A Touch of Elegance by Creative Crafting World (main image)
Beatrix Potter A Winter's Tale by Crafter's Companion (backing paper)
with a die cut from Memory Box and a few gems.

Just a little early but I would like to wish everyone a very Happy New Year and lots of crafting in 2015.

Stamp, Stamp, Stamp!

I can't believe it's two weeks since our last CD Sunday Challenge but it is time for me to pick my top three and get on with my post for the new challenge.

Here is my card for Sue's choice of Stamp it.

I used Cute Companions Winter Tales for my background scene and then stamped lots of characters from the matching stamp sets and coloured them in. The greeting is also from the same stamp sets. It was a great excuse to add lots of glitter too.

I do hope you will find time to join in this challenge with Christmas getting ever closer and so much still to do. I had foolishly thought I was all organised and ready but looking around here at all I still have to do it would appear not.

Congratulations to Shaz for winning our spot prize and I will be back next time with my top three, don't forget to check on the CD Sunday blog to see if you are the lucky one as I have a little something to send to the winner of my top three.

You will find the latest challenge along with inspiration from my fellow teamies here.

Merry Christmas everyone:
