Christmas

Hello everyone this months Clarity Groovi Challenge is WINTER FLORALS I thought I would get Jaynes lovely poinsettia  plate out for this so nice to build them up which I have done here I will put list below of what I used to make this project

Clarity starter groovi kit
Groovi Border frame plate /boarder nested tags plate
Boarder perforating plate
Jaynes poinsettia plate
A4 Nested circles and frilly frame plate
Clarity A6 frame plate
Clarity light box
Double side fine tape / Clear foam tape
Perforating tools /snips /  embossing tools /Black board
Clarity Summer parchment / Normal parchment
Faber castell polychromo colour pencil /Tumble drier sheet

Before I start if you are new to parchment just few tips use a tumble drier sheet on the side of the parchment that you will be doing your scoring this will help your tools glide use this side for  white work use the soft side of the board for white work and a soft mat for your perforating which is done on the front of your work snipping on the front as well. when using the coloured parchment  your white work and scoring on the brightest shine side



With the A4 circle score your circles


On normal parchment do two full images of the poinsettias . I used scrap parchment to make the levels of the flowers I made four
to your frame add your ferns every other one
make your tag with the centre of the parchment this is where I changed thing did not think the merry Christmas showed enough so I did another centre piece of the tag and added the letters from the A6 plate frame. With the perforating plate and no 1 tool I added dots to the boarder of my tag
With perforating mat and two pin tool went around my frame and tag


Add coulr to the poinsettias and the frame now perforate the flowers

With the parchment scissors or snips that I use picot all your pieces I added my frame with the double sided tape on the berries to the base card then poinsettias  now build up your flowers using the transparent foam tape hope you enjoyed this thank you for visiting my blog

Winter Pancy Box


Hello everyone this months Clarity stamp and stencil challenge is WINTER FLORALS my idea for this was last Christmas was given this box with truffles in thought keep that for my stash might come in handy which now has give you a list below what I used to make this lets get started

Box to decorate
white tissue paper /Clarity the other card
Distress ink pad wild honey / sage green
Adirondak pitch black ink pad
Pinflair glue gel / MOD PODGE matte glue
Glamour dust crystal / old course nail file
Anitas 3D clear gloss finish /Promarkers
Clarity Pansy stamp from the set of multi flower stamps
Clarity leaf stamp from Jaynes rose set  
old paint brushes for glue and varnish



  Shown pictures of this from top and side so you can see what I have done
 
With the base of the box ruff it up with the old file wipe off the dust rub the Green ink pad over it leave to dry
white tissue paper scrunch few layers brush the lid with the Mod glue add the tissue then go over with the glue again put a side to dry

Now stamp multiple pansy's and Leaves

Box is dry so distress it with the  honey ink pad add straight to the tissue paper
 

Colour your flowers and leafs with promarkers colour just past the flower and leafs so when you cut out if you miss a bit not got white card left behind

With pin flair glue and cocktail stick add blobs of the it on the bottom of the flowers mount them up till your are happy don't press them down as you want some height then again with one layer of the leaves around the pansy's wait till dry need to put work on old paper so don't splash any think that don't want to ruin
With an old plate brush mix water with the 3d gloss just to thin it slightly brush all over the flowers leaves and tissue paper then very lightly while still wet sprinkle the glamour dust over the flowers hope you enjoyed what I have made Thank you for visiting my blog xx

Roses


Hello everyone this month Clarity Groovi challenge is ALL THINGS JAYNE NESTORENKO so I chose Jaynes lovely rose for this wanted to show a bit more of the parts I have struggled with the picot and cutting as I am still learning myself hope you enjoy this will put list of the stuff I have used

Clarity parchment
Clarity Groovi Jaynes roses plate
Clarity groovi Jayne frame plate
 Groovi Tina A4 square Flowers and butterfly plate
Groovi starter kit
Groovi border perforating plate
 Clarity groovi boarder plate Henna / banner boarder plate
Grovi boarder plate holder
Black groovi board /
 tools snips two pin perforating tool / single perforating tool
Thin double side tape / faber castell poyochromo colour pencils
New England fall papers /Tumble drier sheet


Before we start use tumble drier sheet on the side you do all your white work and scoring as this will help your tools glide so this is the reverse side of parchment  you use the front side of your work for perforating and snipping out  soft side of board for perforating and white work hard side scoring and colouring hope this helps



 
Lets get started just score the out sides of the frame of the plate

Add your rose to the centre of the frame

 
Add Happy birthday from the frame plate
 
Back using the rose plate again I added roses and leaves around the inside of the plate But not around the Happy birthday





Using boarder holder  plate I added the shape from Henna boader plate to the out side of the frame
Now with the banner border plate I put part of it to fit in around the roses

Now  your white work a little at a time be patient don't do to  much  at a time other wise will  buckle the parchment Then add colour on the reverse but on a hard side of the board. Now with the no 1 tool  and perforating  Boarder plate add dots to the corner I'm afraid I made mistake so got Tina plate out of flowers and made a moth to put over this part we learn by our mistakes



Now to the part I find hard with the two pin perforating tool and your parchment facing the front go around your flowers and leaves and around the outside of the banner and in between the shapes on the outside of frame you can also do around the  very edge I use the snips I find this easier than the scissors but what you get on with is the best I did my picot cutting around the flower first then using fine double sided strong tape added to my papers hope you enjoyed this thank you for visiting my blog

Forever flowers



Hello everyone this months Clarity  stamp and stencil challenge is ALL THINGS JAYNE NESTORENKO what some lovely designs Jayne came up with I decided on my work for this I would have a go at water colour for a change using the colour bursts can I apologise that some of my photos are up side down it is a new phone great one but been having trouble with the soft wear  I will put a list of what I used below

Water colour card
Ken Oliver colour bursts
Paint brush water / plate mix colours / paper towel
Letraset aqua markers
Versafine permanent Onyx black
Clarity sentiment stamp 
Clarity stamps Jaynes Dahlias
Distress ink pad tumble glass/ Clarity stencil brush

Lets get started


 With the permanent ink I Stamped the flower in the middle first so that could just fit the other two flowers in the corners with no problems

Now add the butterfly and the sentiment

I used the blue first mixed the colour burst on my plate only use a little powder goes a long way made it watery can always add more dabbed my paint brush around. at times I used kitchen roll if  its to wet or to dark dab the card  I carried on with this it felt had enough then added bit red to the blue did the same again

to the lower end of the card was  more red but still watery
 
 Now with fine paint brush and the colour bit more intense, colour in the flowers and leaves once I got this done felt just needed a bit more so I used the aqua makers to add shade to the flowers once completely dry.  use stencil brush and tumble glass ink pad went around the out side of the card felt this added a bit more to the card hope you enjoyed this card thank you for reading my blog.

Garden Invite


Hello everyone this months Clarity challenge is GARDEN PARTY this is what I came up with for this I will leave a list of what I used to make this below
Clarity Stencil card
Clarity groovi club Butterfly plate
Andirondack pitch black /Raspberry/ peach bellini
Distress ink pad / tumble glass Mustard seed/ spiced Marmalade /peeled paint
Promakers fine tips
Faber castell poychromo colour pencils
Brighton rock papers
Clarity stamps Numbers / Letterbox  sentiments stamps
Masking tape / make up sponge
Clarity stencil brushes ?
Clarity parchment ? Perga glue /Gems
Clarity Black board for groovi
Pergamano tools and snips





Lets get started with the circle shape stamps from numbers stamps I stamped these in black ink

And covered with the masks you get with these stamps


Fix your stencil to the Card using masking tape at the top and bottom to secure with stencil brush for each colour I held my hand at different parts ( higher you hold the brush the lighter the colour then the lower you hold it the more colour you apply ) when you are happy with this go in with a make up sponge to add more colour to the centre of the flowers and where else you might want darker Carefully lift the stencil to see if it is as you would like carefully remove stencil  and remove masks

Remove your masks with promakers you can give this bit more depth of colour but I used the fine nibs and added an out line to the colour stencil image choosing the nearest colours that I had to do this

With the Grovvi club plate I did two butterfly's using groovi tools on the reverse side  my white work on a soft side of the board  Then back to hard side of board but reverse of the parchment colour the two butterfly's in. now with two pin perforating tool and parchment on the right side and perforating mat  go around the outside of the butterfly and with parchment scissors snip both butterfly's out on the one I used for the top took off the antennas  and the little white pieces off I used Perga glue to attach to the card and added gems to antennas

I used the paper from Brighton rock to mount this as I felt the colour and the stripe matched in well hope you enjoyed this card Thank you for visiting my blog hope I will see you soon xx

My Garden Party

Hello everyone well we are in August already this months Clarity challenge is GARDEN PARTY my thought to this was lots of flowers hope you enjoy what I have made will put list of what I used below


Clarity A4  clear parchment
Groovi starter kit
Groovi boarder plate holder / Border perforating plate
Groovi henna border plate
Clarity groovi tag boarder plate A4 square frame plate with Alphabet
Tina Swirl flower plate A4 square
Clarity Amethyst A5 plate
Pergamano snips / Two perforating tool and single
Perga glue / Faber castell polychrome colour pencils
Gems
Clarity light box / Clarity Black board

Can I say before we start rub tumble drier sheet on reverse of parchment will help your tools glide
You do your line work and white work on the side that you wiped your tumble drier sheet
From the front of the parchment you do all your perforating and snipping
Use the soft side of the mat for white work and on separate one with soft side perforating
Hard side board for colouring and line work




Lets get started With tumble drier sheet rub the back of parchment And you use  no 1 tool just do the frame of the square don't do the corners

Sorry forgot to add a photo here of just the dot pattern.  With my border plate holder with perforating plate in and your work on reverse to start with no 1 tool I did my dots started with the four square went 6 holes to the right same then  carried on like this till the end then put next dot so that its just above and to the right of the square once you get going it gets easier making sure their is two missed holes either way with single dot and you will see does match up yes you got it right when first started this pattern made many a mistake I carried on with the whole frame then I turned work over and with singe perforating tool did my four holes
Decided at this point to put a pattern around the outside of the frame using the henna plate then I added dots to this with my boarder perforating plate but on the back so dots rather than holes   With my snipps from the front of the work I cut my crosses


These were one on clear parchment was the photo quality sorry I did 4 of the flowers off the Amethyst plate and jut four heads  on the reverse with the hard side of the board and my pencils coloured these flowers before perforating on the front with two pin perforating tool
 
 I actually messed up the middle of my frame so thought don't waste this snip the middle out of frame and do another on another piece of parchment but again use the inner boarder of the frame plate now place the flowers from Tina plate where you would like these On the soft side of the board do your white work little at a time leave at the side to rest and come back do more till you are happy with this  And again on reverse with hard board underneath add your colour Now with work on the front and soft perforating mat with two pin perforating tool go around the out side of the frame 
 
I used the Boarder tags with piece of scrap parchment for this put in my letters from square frame plate and a flower from Amethyst plate on the reverse do your white work on the frame of tag then colour the flower


With two pin perforating tool go around the outside frame and the inside of frame
I put this together using pergo glue and the very thin extra strong double sided tape hope you enjoyed this . Thank you for visiting my blog hope I will see you back here again soon xx
