Cut out to be friends


Hope you are keeping well. The days are getting a little brighter and it won't be long before we change the clocks in the UK for summer time.

Today I'm sharing a bright and cheery card made for a special crafty friend to celebrate an extra special birthday.

I've stamped and cut out the images, colouring them with my new creamy smooth Blackwing pencils, before sticking them onto an acetate circle for support. This close up shows the sparkle better.

I've used the stamps from Creative Stamping issue 91. Perfect for all my crafty friends.

Creative Stamping Magazine #91

I think this is another set I shall be dipping into again.

Thank you for taking the time to look. Have a great day xx


  1. Oh, I love this card!!!
    Bravo Claire, you're a very clever lady and great stamper and painter. :)
    Hugs, Coco xx

    1. Thank you that's very kind, especially from you as your work is so vibrant and inspiring xx

  2. I'm well impressed Claire though feeling naughty too because I have this set and not used those either but I agree they will be great for making cards for our crafty friends. Thanks for asking we're all well just my mum who's in a nursing home at the moment having some physio (she's 92) obviously we've not been able to see her but they are planning her return home as we speak so fingers crossed. Hope you're well too. Sending hugs, Angela xXx

  3. Very special Claire, as special as a 50th Birthday!
