Christmas is a-coming…

Christmas is a-coming…

Hi there

Thanks for popping in. Did you know that it’s 103 days to Christmas Day? Sounds like ages away, but in cardmaking speak, that’s synonymous with “I’d better get a wriggle on, if I’m going to make some Christmas Cards this year!” I was looking at all the different designs we have in our vast Clarity Art Library, and I must say, the designs that are our Offer of the Week this week – aka half price – are among my all time favourites. Not only because they conjure the essence of what we hope that the Christmas season will bring, but also because our dearest friend Jayne Nestorenko drew them – and her goodness is reflected so perfectly in the illustrations. We added a clever touch with the masks, and that makes the art even more appealing to the likes of me, who loves a landscape.

Just take a look at these winter landscape stampsets! So interchangeable and mix ‘n matchable. CLICK HERE to find the Half Price Offer.

If you like them like I like them, then now might be a good time to treat yourself. They’re all lovely! Pick your favourite!

Stay safe

  1. 103!!!! I better get a wriggle on. I’m usually finished by now but not even thought about starting my cards yet. But I’m sure I still have a few left over fro last year. Fingers crossed.
    I do love these designs in both stamps and Groovi. Timeless.
    Hope you’re having a Fabbie time with Grace.
    Love and hugs. Xxxx

  2. I love these stamps and have most of them -must check to see if I’m missing any! Have started my cards for overseas, using bauble stamps and London overlay and dies to make them light-weight. Have to post by the end of the month! Thank goodness for my Clarity stamps and dies!

  3. I have both the stamps and Groovi plates but actually use the stamps more. I often use just parts of the designs, they are very versatile. I have started my cards but not got very far, family life getting in the way. New grandchild imminent so we are helping out with the toddler to give mum a rest. I shall sleep well tonight his energy is amazing. xx

  4. Love these stamps and thoroughly enjoyed the Friday night Pyjama Party, giggling along with you and Grace, so infectious. It’s so great to have Grace home again with you. I’ve had a really stressful day waiting to hear how my husband Michael was after his heart surgery today. Just heard all went well he’s fast asleep and in high dependency ward so will be ringing in the morning. Thank goodness for our fantastic NHS they are just amazing. Groovi kept me sane today!

  5. Love the designs by Jane, they are timeless. A great selection of cards from the design team giving plenty of inspiration. I need to get a wriggle on in case my cataract op gets scheduled before Christmas as I haven’t started yet. My winter lino cuts have just been dispatched so along with my stamps, Groovi plates & the new border dies I should be able to complete my task with some new designs/combinations.
    Enjoy the rest of the week with Grace, not sure how long she came over for this time but I am sure you are making the most of your bonus time together.

  6. I have these stamps and Groovi plates, also Jane’s Children. They are beautiful designs and her talent is sorely missed.
    Great artwork as usual and so varied.
    My Christmas cards are well under way, pleased with myself this year- haha – now I just need need to decide where the tree will go this year. Always a bone of contention.
    Have a lot of catching up to do on YouTube. Looking forward to seeing you and Grace.
    Stay safe.

  7. Got these stamps earlier this year and have made a few of this year’s Christmas cards with them. Received my lino cut winter stamps today can’t wait to have a play tomorrow a few more cards to make.

  8. Hello Barb, beautiful designs and gorgeous artwork. Jayne really put her heart and soul into everything she did and it shines through in these designs. Take care and stay safe everyone. Bx

  9. Hello Barbara, I just love those stamps by Jayne and got them all. Not here but back in Germany and do hope they’re among my craft items which could be saved after the recent floods in Germany which has destroyed my flat there. Will find out when I’ll finally be able to get back there. In the meantime, I’ve started my Christmas cards as you’re right 103 days does sound like far away but before you know Santa will be on his way. Haven’t been able to join you for a while so.lotscof catching up to do especially your last pyjama party. Hope you enjoyed your week with Grace. How is your Dad? Xxx

  10. Love these scenes. Was excited as I would like the smaller stamps but despite the verses being used on samples the sale only includes the large stamps.
    O well I’ll have to wait for future sales. In fact that may be better since I have already spent well this month.

  11. Hi Barb,
    Was just about to order these when I thought I’d better check to see if I already had them! Guess what – yes I do!!! They are gorgeous stamps and I also have them in Groovi too. Fabulous offer as well. Haven’t even though about starting my cards yet, busy making decorations as presents at the moment and Sept and Oct are very busy months for birthday for me too. I’ll get round to Christmas cards one day!!! Love and hugs,Alison xx
