Claire Brennan is releasing four amazingly beautiful stamp sets this release month! My Island is like a tropical get-away, Petite Patisserie is a sweet shop of goodness, So Cool is packed with yummy ice cream treats and Sweet Thing is a cupcake lovers dream! Beth and Claire have created some serious ‘cuteness overload’ in these sets!

First up today is Beth's newest set, called Bella Elephant...which is just sooo stinking cute!  Here is what I have for this:





I made her sitting on some crass in the cool sun!  LOL!  really a super fun and quick card on this one!  I watercolored on this one.  The sun was made from a die that matched one of our STV kits images way back and then used the faces from one of Claire's sets so sun would be a happy sun!  :D
Next up is Claire's newest ...I was suppose to two of her sets but I did a card from each one, lol!  so, first one up is Petite Patisserie...

I totally love this set!  This card is Billy's Pic of the Release!  I showed this at the release party, but didnt show this tile I made...here it is:

This is like a trivet, 6" x 6".  But when I sell these I will say they are only for decorative purposes only.  I used copic markers, stayz on inks and some of GKD inks too.  I will put some kind of sealer on this, just not for sure which kind yet!  LOL

 Ok next up is is Claire's Sweet Thing stamp set:






i made a fun and festive creation! for someone's birthday!  I watercolored this also, although I kind of ended up covering it up!  but swooshed on some background and the cupcake cup?  I stamped it onto a sheet of that ink toner for foiling and then cut out the shape..I think scored the lines on it, it looks lots better IRL though!  lol.

And the next is Claire's My Island set:





For this  card I used some distress paints to do the background behind the black rays of sunshine.  I did a bit of distressing on the vellum sheet and the little image.  I love how this one turned out!  :D

Ok, that's all from me for now!  Ready for more awesome inspiration?!!  here ya go!

The red on the ice cream shoppe is wonderful.

thanks or sharing.

Heidi Stamps said...

I love the trivet. I have stamped travels before, and they hold up well unless you use a cleaner on them. If you just use a damp rag, they are fine, but some people use stronger stuff.

Very cute card projects too!

mtscrapgal said...

The tile is beautiful. I like the little shop stamps. Thanks

Gayle said...

Gorgeous cards and love your trivet. What awesome work!

They're all really nice cards. The Bella elephant is just the cutest though. Love him!!

Rosy Newlun said...

How did you make all these beauties? You just amaze!!! I don't know what to comment on, but these rock and ROLL! I do love that trivet idea. I would probably paint a few coats onto the top, sides, and bottom and dry in between everything. But that's just me, and I don't know how to seal stuff lol!
