Just how I pictured it!

Just how I pictured it!

Hi there

Thanks for popping in. Been working on the Christmas TV Show today. Every year we have a one hour TV show on Christmas Day. Don’t know exactly what time yet, but today was the day I put the new stamps through their paces. And I am VERY happy to tell you they have come out EXACTLY how I pictured them! So chuffed.

There’s a Winterland Stampset, which I love. You know the one…

Well, a few weeks ago, I thought these would be very cool in reverse. I could see the deer and tree in boxes, so that you could use them like tiles. Lisa and I put our heads together, and after much adjusting and thickening of the lineart etc, we came up with these:

They don’t sit within each other; the original images are smaller, because we decided that would be really useful for perspective.

It’s always a little nerve racking when the prototypes land and you have to check whether what you saw in your mind’s eye can actually be translated onto paper.

Pleased as punch with these. They are even better than I imagined! Look!

And the two sets work perfectly together too:

I‘ve got so much to show you now! But it will be ok to to wait until 25th. That’s when these stamps will be available. If I’m not mistaken, we are giving you the original set as a Christmas gift when you buy the new box set!!

Time to go and tidy up this little room of mine, in readiness for tomorrow’s HOCHANDA TV Shows. Streaming LIVE on Skype 2pm-4pm, 6pm and 8pm. Some lovely and very special SHAC Shack Stamps/Groovi plates tomorrow…

Stay safe

Love always

  1. Hi Barb,
    Oh I do like these “ reverse” stamps. They look fantastic. I already have the original ones so these will be brilliant. I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s shows and recorder is set. Love and hugs Alison xxx

  2. How pretty are they! Absolutely loving all the stuff Clarity has put together this year or revamped! What an inspiration to us all. Just a shame my bank balance doesn’t allow me to purchase everything. I will have to get cracking with the Elf hunt and see if I can win the wonderful vouchers. Excited to tune in tomorrow. My sky box planner is full of the Clarity shows. Always kept for further inspiration on my purchases. Thankyou for all you and your teams hard work in this pandemic. You’ve been marvellous. Shac Christmas cards completed and written. Time to play with Gray Friday Sale purchases. Happy days! Crafty hugs love and best wishes. Tina

  3. Lovely artwork, beautiful verse which I’ve used a lot this year. Already have the original set of stamps, so I may pass on your brilliant offer, trying to be good and sit on my hands after your super sale, but with your shows tomorrow and Monday, that may not last very long!! Happy weekend. xx

  5. As if waiting for Santa to arrive wasn’t bad enough; you tease us even more! (lol). These are a hit before you launch!!

  6. Have just told hubby Barbara is on Christmas Day and do you know what – he just looked at me!!! I’ve set the recorder for tomorrow as I’m at a Groovi Group so will catch up when home. Love these stamps Barbara, especially the tree. Good luck tomorrow and see you in the Shac on Monday xx

  7. You are on the most astonishing roll! What a brilliant idea. I’m sorry you ended up working today but what a result! Thank you for the Christmas show.

  8. I told hubby too – he asked could we please have a time soon so he can plan timing for dinner as he is cooking – he doesn’t want me watching live while trying to do justice to his efforts with the turkey !!!!!
    I am looking forward to the Sunday show and the ODS. The stamps on the box deerscapes will be a welcome additionto the stash too.
    Stay safe.

  9. Well, that takes care of Christmas Day then! Excellent. Just finished recording and uploading a video for tomorrow. No one who hasn’t done this before has any idea of how much work goes into it but it’s done and I have to say, I enjoyed doing it. Have a lovely evening, not that there is much left of it!! Must go and put the fire on! Lots of love, Hxx

  12. Hello Barb, the original Winterland stamp is gorgeous, and the new additions are just perfect alongside. Looking forward to todays shows. Take care and stay safe everyone. Bx

  13. The stamps look great.can’t wait to see the demos. Has anyone had trouble finding number five elf. I have been through the web site twice and I can’t find him.

  14. Gorgeous! I must remember to use other colours with silhouette stamps when I get my stash back from storage. So many ideas in my head that I can’t try out just yet – thank goodness for pinterest!!!
