Our Creative Corner


I've finally found some time to spend in my craft room. Firstly I had a rush card as my OH informed me he needed a card to post today!! Secondly I made a card for a challenge. I must be out of practice as I got glue everywhere!

This card is for the current challenge at Our Creative Corner where the theme is to make a Fall/Autumn card.

Here's what I used to make this card:

Stamp: from SU set "A Little Bit of Happiness"
Cardstock: Die Cuts With a View
Ink: Memento "Rich Cocoa"; Tim Holtz Distress "Vintage Photo" and "Tea Dye"
Colour medium: Polychromos and Sansador
Tools: Big Shot (yes I got one!); Scallop Nestabilities; Heidi Swapp distress tool; paper piercer
Accessories: Brads and SU ribbon

Thank you for stopping by my blog and taking a look. I will be back to visit you soon!

Clare xx
