My Clarity Barb inspired evening

So after many hours of the lovely Barbara Grey on C and C this weekend I sat down and made some cards whilst watching the shows I'd recorded... and these are my results...

Using some new stampin up ink in the IN COLORS range I stamped this wheel effect using the corner stamp i had bought from Clarity at the NEC. Think the colour is crushed concord. Then added the sentiment in Poppy Parade using a stampin up stamp I bought off eBay.
Then mounted the stamped piece on a strip of the Poppy Parade and then on a navy card blank I bought from Caroles Crafts.

Next up ....

This time a smaller image using a different clarity corner, this time stamped in Poppy Parade, and then added the sentiment from a little set I bought off eBay again. Then used the pear pizazz (?) Ink to do a strip at the bottom of the card blank. Added a banner strip of the Poppy Parade, and then mounted.

Finally, my piece de resistance...

So I did another frame type pattern with the clarity corner again. This time in my big and juicy happy birthday ink pad and added the sentiment from the stampin up eBay set. As my clarity card is only a6 the design didn't fit on the card, but I liked it anyway. Then mounted on two different green patterned paper and onto an a5 card blank. Also added the flower and gem.
Why the piece de resistance? Because I posted the pic on Twitter and Barbara herself reposted it with the comment excellent. The excitement that little action created was amazing!

Anyways ... many more cards made and yet to be photographed so more blog posts to come.

Happy crafting all ... and thanks for stopping by.
