July challenge

Welcome to our July challenge where we are pleases to introduce a fabulous new sponsor Little Claire Designs and of course a great new theme.

But before I tell you about that I have some bad new and good news to share, our lovely Pinky is taking a few months break to concentrate on family and her card making business which has become rather busy lately. We will all miss you so much Pinky and your lovely cards, but understand you need to take time out and really hope you will be back with us again soon.

But that does bring me to the good news, we have decided to increase the DT to eight and I am so thrilled to announce the new crafty girls to our team Eret and Maddy. Both have been regular's at Stamping Sensations over the years and have both been challenge winners so it was an easy decision to invite them to join us. I hope you will join myself and the DT in giving them a very warm welcome.

So now for our theme which is an option, a lovely sketch designed by our own Tracy and Summer colours. This means you can use just the sketch, just summer colours or combine the two, it's up to you completely. 

Now to introduce our sponsor..........................

Little Claire is a team of 3 consisting of Gill (Little Claire) Steve and Carol (long suffering member of staff/friend/all round good egg!) ‘Necessity is the mother of invention’ this is the saying that sums up the creation of Little Claire Designs.

We love stamps and what better way to satisfy the stamping ‘urge’ than to create our own designs exactly as we want them!

Our products are designed and manufactured here in the UK and we get really excited when an idea comes to fruition and ends up as a real live stamp and is translated into a beautiful card.  And talking about beautiful cards, we are very fortunate to have a wonderful team of designers who are very loyal and supportive to Little Claire and they make the most amazing card samples which in turn help to sell our stamps & accessories, thank you to our ‘Teamies’ x

So this is us, we are always moving forward, constantly thinking of new ideas, sketch book always to hand, we love what we do and hope you do too x’

And now for some inspiration from the design team and this months Guest Designer who we are very pleased to welcome................Marianne, who has made this delightful card.............


Using Little Claire's "Swirly Whirlies Owl Family" (part of stamp)

Good luck with the challenge everyone and myself and the DT are really looking forward to seeing all your lovely creations this month.
