A Clarity Stamp Christmas

Hi Crafter's

I have more cards made with the Noel stamp  from Clarity Stamps.

This is a one layer card. The stamped Noel is masked off and the background is sponged inside the O then I have over stamped with the Camels. I then masked off Noel again but this time I have sponged in the background outside The O. I used torn paper as one of the masks to create the sand dunes.

This next card was made in a similar way.

First mask of a the area where you don't want ink, in this case I cut a hole in a piece of paper the same size of the card.
I then ripped a strip of some more paper and laid that over the hole then cut another circle and cut a part of it away to make a crescent moon and from the sticky part of a post-it-note.
Sponge in the sky.
Over stamp with the Images you have in your stash. In the case I have used more stamps from Clarity Stamps. I just love them.
Then I have taken away the masks and then stamped around the out side with a corner snowflake stamp.
To finish off I stamped the Mice.

For both cards I used Memento ink pads to sponge the backgrounds Summer Sky and Paris Dusk. Also Paris Dusk was used to stamp the images.

Thank you for visiting my little blog. I'll see you again soon with another creation soon.

Those a lovely cards. Wish I had more time to make cards - maybe that should be my next 30 day challenge:)

Sue - I loved the Three Kings card, it is so intereting to understand the techniques that go into creating the image as I know so little about paper crafts

Your cards are lovely, I love the effect of tearing the paper to get the sand dunes, it's so much more effective than cutting the paper.

I really do like both of these cards. They look stunning. I'm not really into making cards using promarkers but I like working with ink pads so this is a technique that I think would suit me.

Lovely cards, I like the way you can give cards more depth with 'masking'. The colours are very subtle which also make them stand out so well.

Interesting ways to use the sponging technique resulting in great cards
