Wow Maria Simms you are so clever. Little Claire Fairy, silhouette Cats and lovebirds stamps.

Hi Maria, I have got to know how you put our little claire fairy in the vase please and using her daisy so many times,how clever? The three cards are amazing and lovely to see the lovebirds stamp and silhouette cats designed so interestingly, thank you so much for your ideas


  1. Hi all,the Little Claire vase was very easy to achieve,i made an aperture mask of the vase outline and then stamped Little Claire through the aperture. Colouring was with pro-markers, i glittered the wings and then glazed the vase with versamark and embossing powder. The bunch of daisies are the same daisy as the umbrella daisy-very easy to cut out and look lovely shaped for dimension.

    The black sky effect in the silhuette cats card was achieved by punching a little circle from a post-it and sticking it down,i then used black dye ink on a brayer,remove the circle to reveal a lovely shiny moon-which i just had to glitter!

    The little love birds stamp is fantastic for simple but striking wedding stationery, and i have used it for easter cards and a new baby card.

    Thanks to Steve and the gang at Little Claire's for showing my cards!

  2. I agree that your cards are great, Maria and thanks for explanations too. The brayered cat card is beautiful - very effective with the silhouette stamps.
