Clarity Christmas Day and Night Stamps

These are the last of my samples from the August UK shows.  They are both using the new Christmas Day and Christmas Night stamps from Clarity.


I think the stamps are beautiful as they are, so for this one I kept it really simple.  I used Versamark ink and fine detail embossing powder in gold on Centura pearl card.  I heated it from underneath to keep the embossing as smooth as possible.  A couple of attempts ended up in the bin but I ended up with four that I was happy with.  Dodgy embossing would totally spoil a card like this!

I matted the embossed images onto some Bazzill card and added a matching ribbon to make it look like a parcel.  When rooting through my Clarity stamps I found the perfect stamp for the tag.  I think it finishes it off perfectly.


I do love different cards and this one was my favourite of the samples I made this month.  That probably explains why there are so many photos of it!


It's a picture flip card and I found a couple of demos for them on YouTube.  I just adjusted the measurements to fit the stamps.  


I made a mask and brayered through it for the sky.  Then added glitter to the snow on the trees.  The cross is coloured in with a gold gel pen.  The snowflakes along the side are done with a Martha Stewart punch and the tag is another Clarity stamp.


For the Night stamp I just coloured in the starts with Distress Ink on a Cut-N-Dry nib and added glitter to the trees.

I've added a video as these sort of cards look so much better in action.  Hubby is doing the modelling, I think he could be after a job on a game show!
