Stampin' Chic challenge no.1 and Truly Scrumptious Challenge no. 2


SC no.1 & TS no.2
Originally uploaded by claire wright

This is my entry for the Stampin Chic and Truly Scrumptious Challenges.

The sketch layout is from Truly Scrumptious. The challenge was also to include handmade buttons. I have done these using the new Clare Curd Signature Range stamps which have been clear embossed and cut out.

The Stampin Chic challenge was to do paper piecing on a card which included some CCSR products.

My main image is the lion Rory from Sugar Nellie. I have paper pieced his mane, tail, the watering can and the plant pot using a mixture of Core-dinations card and card from my local craft shop. I tried to cover the mane and tail with clear embossing powder but it didn't work very well so I added Anita's Clear Glaze instead!!

The background papers and Happy Birthday stamp are all from the new CCSR. I love the greetings stamps - so many to choose from - and as for the Big One paper pack, I'll be using it for ages!!!

Thanks for looking!!
