Live for Today

Hello there
After a little break to get re-energized I spent the weekend getting my crafting mojo going. My lovely husband buys me craft magazines from time to time and I thought a good way to get creating without too much effort was to have a play with the stamp set from Creative Stamping 54.

The plane is slightly raised on foam pads but I also added a shadow with Promarkers on the base to give the illusion of extra depth.

After a day of getting inky making a batch of cards I feel that creative spark returning!

Thank you for stopping by xxx

Materials used:
Creative Stamping issue 54
GiogioCraft stencil: directional drops
DecoArt Personally Yours stencil: pride
Distress Oxides
Archival ink


  1. My OH also buys me magazines from time to time! Nice to know a lot of men are actually nice to their women and put up with their crafty ways... I do like the look of these stamps, must check that issue of Creative Stamping. A great masculine card Claire!

    1. Thank you I agree it helps to have a tolerant partner although mine has a few collections of his own! xx

  2. Great stamps Claire. My one doesn't buy me mags but he sure puts up with a lot as I seem to have stuff all over the house at the moment, trying to have a clear out of stash I've not used for ages but it's hard to let stuff go Lol! Have a great weekend, Angela xXx

    1. I have to laugh as a colleague was clearing out her craft stash and I ended up buying it all off her this week! There’s no hope 😃

  3. I'm glad you're back, this card is gorgeous!


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I really appreciate it. xx
