Winter Wonderland

Another week has flown by and to be honest, I must admit...I REALLY don't know what time of day it is at the moment ~ I could've sworn we were only on Wednesday!! Lol!!

Anyway, I now know it's THURSDAY...*repeats to oneself, over and over again* and of course, this means it's the penultimate day of my Clarity shares and as always, I hope you like it!!
I actually did a similar card to this for Barbara's shows in Germany, which I will share with you all soon but of course, I needed to make a few alterations so that they weren't the same and even though I used the same stamp set, this one actually looks very different when you compare them.
The card is actually made up of three single stamps but to achieve the snowy forest in the background, I just stamped repeatedly until I was happy. I then created the snowy effect and the sky, using my well loved and used DI's before colouring the house with Promarkers and adding glitter highlights.

Also, just before I go...some of you will remember that I joined my lovely friend Sarah Hurley during the summer to be a part of Kirstie Allsopp's new show and many of you said at the time, that when I knew it was airing to let you know...well tonight is the first of the series and for all I know, I might have ended up on the cutting room floor but for those Kirstie fans amongst can tune in at 8:00 on Channel 4!!! 
So, that's it from me for today and thank you so much for dropping by to visit me and I'll look forward to reading all your comments!! It's always so good to see them all and really does make all the hard work worthwhile!
I'll be back tomorrow with my final share of the, I'll see you then!!
Bye for Emma xxx


  1. Really lovely card, Emma, beautifully created. I have missed the live showing of Kirsty, so I will have to catch it on replay and look out for you and your creations. Hope you are feeling a bit better now. Take care of yourself. xx Maggie

  2. This is such a delicate card and it will grace the mantle shelf of whichever recipient is lucky enough to receive it.

    Subtle colours; perfect stamping; exquisite design.

    Totally EW à la Clarity!

  3. As ever Emma this is a beautiful card.
    Managed to catch Kirsty's Vintage Home on Ch4+1 = some handy hints and tips there

  4. What a pretty card. Love the scene you created with the trees.

  5. Stunning card lovely - I've been watching Barbara's shows, had them recorded so I could just watch at any time, I'm getting good, can 99% of the time spot yours before they say! Recorded Kirsty's show too as I do lover her programmes anyway but knowing you 2 are on there well, I shall be glued! Take care Zo xx

  6. There is a 90year old grandparent hogging my TV so I haven't watched Kirstie yet!

    Oh and you've forced me into a new year resolution to buy some Clarity stamps and invest in those craftwork cards flowers, maybe I'll treat myself after my sister's wedding...

  7. Such a sophisticated colour, and one that lends itself to the beautiful christmassy scene.......wouldn't you just love to be there with a logfire burning?

    Anyway back to reality, stunning as always.
    Hope you're well
    Claire x
