Clarity Maple Leaf Stamps

In case there wasn't enough glitter in the last post, I thought I'd share this card today.

This is probably one of the quickest cards I've made but I was so pleased with the finished result.  

I thought the sparkly finish looked really pretty on TV.

I started off with plain Theuva card from Clarity.  I added a light base coat of Adirondack Butterscotch with a brayer and a Splodge Away mat.  Then I randomly stamped the leaves using various autumnal shades of Adirondacks. The edge was inked with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.

Once it was dry I patted a Versamark ink pad all over it and then covered it in Stardust embossing powder by Stampendous.  I heated it carefully from underneath so I didn't blow any of the powder off.

I'm going to have a go at a Christmas version when I get the time.  I think it would look really pretty done with a snowflake in various shades of blue, maybe with some lilac and silver.  In fact if it works I think that will be one of my Christmas card designs this year.  If I ever get them started!!!!!!



  1. What a beautiful card Lynne. Looks really good close up.
    Would love those stamps but spent too much this month lol cos really want the numbers too.
    i love the finish with the stardust embossing powder. Have you tried the kaleidoscope that they do. That gives a nice finish too.

    1. Thanks Linda. I've not got the kaleidoscope one. I'll have to look out for that.

  2. Such a beautiful result Lynne and yes it looked fantastic on the t.v. This is another technique that I might just have to borrow and have a play with. I ordered the stamps and they came in the week. I just Need some time now to have a play. Have a great weekend. X

  3. Just been catching up with all the blogs I follow. Forgive the impersonal approach but I only follow those blogs that always give me pleasure; the ones listed on my website; the ones that add something to my day, my skills, my experience, my life.

    Thanks Lynne!
