And have you seen the fabulous news? IndigoBlu are starting a series of workshops and are having another Open Day!! Similar to the one last year, on Sunday 31st August. You will have 4, get it 4 demonstrators which are Kay, Nikki, Jenny and myself. It is 10am till 4pm and I hope to see you all their!


Onto my post for the day! Over on the Challenge blog we have a brand new challenge: Christmas in July.
It is too hot for Christmas you say…. well its actually not that far away which is the scary part of summer! For my inspiration piece I used the most gorgeous new Christmas stamps Snowflake Lace and Merry Christmas Circle.


christmas in july challenge 1


I inked all around the edge of a piece of IndigoBlu stamping card with Iced Spruce Distress Ink. Stamped the sentiment in Versafine Black, hand cut out and inked around the edge of that with the same ink. I stamped the Snowflake Lace in flitter and flaked with Winter Dawn Mega Flake. I edged the whole piece with the Winter Dawn flake also. Matted it all onto black and added a piece of sheer silver ribbon from my stash and done. Really fast, really simple yet really effective. The sentiment has been raised off the card with some 3D foam.

I really love how this one came out and will have it with me at my demonstrations if you want to see it in person.


Thanks for visiting and I do hope to see you soon!

  3. Thanks Clare for giving a fab demonstration, and lots of tips. Hope to see you in September if not before. Had a lovely play with my purchases when I got home using some of the techniques you showed me.
    Kind regards
