Having fun with hand made cards

I've been having fun making cards again.  With so many beautiful papers to choose from in the Twelve Days of Christmas collection it was really hard to decide which ones to use for this festive and traditional hand made card.  Eventually I went for a subtle background and then did a bit of fussy cutting :-) and added 3 dimensional poinsettias for a real Christmas feel.  I used the Spellbinder Labels 28 die set for the centre mount, the 12 Days Of Christmas cling stamps for the sentiment. and a little bit of gold glitter for a touch of Christmas Sparkle.
G45 are sharing more ideas for hand made cards on their blog today.  Click the link here to go over and see Annes Mother goose card and follow the tutorial for mine above. 

I'm on Create and Craft TV again at 9am on Thursday morning with Stephanie.  We'll be sharing some  more G45 inspiration, their new collections and a few card making ideas, so if you're able to join us just follow the link below and then click on the watch live button. 
Thanks for calling by and catch up again soon :-) 


  1. Good evening Clare,

    Am just loving your Christmas card and will shortly be taking a look at your tutorial. So pleased to read that you will be on C&C on Thursday and am eagerly looking forward to what you have in store for us G45 fans. I've made a note and have a reminder set on the TV so I'll have no excuse for missing it. Thanks for sharing this with us and hope you enjoy the rest of your evening.

What a week!

IndigoBlu Tags  Happy Friday everyone If your a follower of mine you 'll know that I've been off work for a while following an op, but my life as a lady of leisure came to an end this week when I returned to the world of totally british beautiful fast fast cars and ones that go anywhere!!  I had a wonderful welcome back from my colleagues so thanks to everyone for making my first day as good as it was.  I thought I'd feel like the new girl, not able to remember anything, but just like riding a bike it all came flooding back :-) Now I feel like I've not been away lol!!!    I cant deny I'm not pleased its the weekend and I've got time to re charge my batteries before attempting another 5 days on the trot :-)  As I've just joined the IndigoBlu team official this week I thought I'd share a couple of tags with you made with stamps from the  Pomp and Pageantry and Grand Tour 1 plates and the ledger background which I really love.  Tag 1 IndigoBlu

Launching the File Folder......

Hi everyone, it's Friday and launch day for our latest project - the File Folder.  I had loads of fun making the samples altered here in two gorgeous paper collections to give two totally different looks to the same File Folder Cover Set.  .   Measuring 10" x 7 1/4 x 2" the sturdy File Folder Cover set is laser cut from 3mm MDF, has a magnetic closure inset into the covers, opens top reveal the option to add a noticeboard section on the inside cover and a ring binder that holds four layered pages. These can be made with or without pockets and pull out photo mats.  I've added a tuck spot option for the pages too. These allow you to slot pictures onto the pages without sticking them down. That way you can always see the beautiful papers you've chosen to decorate your pages in, like  like the Mad Hatter below.  I added black clips into the samples too to hold more pics and ephemera on the pages.   and right in the centre there's an acetate waterfall se
