Clarity Groovi Deer Plate


Parchment Card


 



The new Groovi plates from Clarity are great for a quick parchment make. This is the Deer plate and I have coloured from the back with Spectrum Noir Pens.  Cut an aperture from a 7" square card.
The Poinsettia is a cut out stencil from Sweet Poppy Stencils.
The Holly and Twigs are Creative Expression Dies

Creative Expression Dies

Creative Expressions meets Tesco! 

I used a 7" square card base and the background glitter sheet was a great find - a Tesco Book covering film!! Adhesive backed it worked a dream!!
The top layer I cut the background die out first and then just embossed the remainder. I ike the cards as they come with a mount so no bother matching the right card ( Anna Marie Designs usually have them but they are popular!).
Used the new Cloud inks - Heather - from cosmic shimmer
 ( Phill Martin) - super to work with the blending sponges. Matched one of the foundation cards really well. Pearls from my stash - similar from Anna Marie too....
  7" Square Linen Embossed Cards & Envelopes -Plus FREE MOUNTS


The two dies I used are:-
Greek Rhodes
Caribbean Island Collection Background Die Set
sentiment stamp from a set by Phill Martin.

New Designs from Sweet Poppy Stencils

A quick card using the new Sweet Poppy Stencil - Holly Sprig

I used translucent paste and then glitters on top. I also used the Merry Christmas stencil and that's it! A quick card design which would make a quick batch make.
 
Here's the link for the Craft Station where this, and other new stencils are listed under New Products

Quick Overview of the circle template!

Pierce any size circle from 1 ½ cm up to 15 cm wide. Transparent and very easy to use. All you need is a piercing tool and you are good to go.
