Evening folks, it's the second exciting night of new releases at PaperArtsy and I was thrilled to bits to be invited back onto Team Clare for her Halloween and Christmas releases. I couldn't wait to see what Clare was going to give us this time around. She has such great style and is always careful to leave plenty of scope for you to add your own touches to her designs. What can I say? I wasn't disappointed and you won't be either:-

I had such a lovely time with these stamps. It was, quite frankly, difficult to put them down. Here's what I made:-

So much to love... The cool bat stamp is one of my favourites and the stockings work perfectly as cobwebs up the side of the tag. Clever huh!? ;oD

Here's our girl again sporting eyelashes, a beauty spot and cobweb dress. Looks like she's found herself a feline friend too.

I've used a mixture of Copic markers, Fresco Paints and Prismacolour pencils here to get the effects I wanted. She's crying out to be made into an art doll too, don't you think.

I've used the fabulous new PaperArtsy Frosting Glaze to stencil icy swirls onto the back of an acrylic tag and then sponged over with Mermaid Fresco Paint when it was dry. On the front of the tag I layered over some Glass Bead Gel. Then I stamped and heat embossed the Let It Snow sentiment and the snowflakes. I coloured the girl in using a mixture of Copic Markers, Prismacolour Pencils and Fresco Paints in blues and greens and added a bit of good old fashioned glitter glue for some added sparkle.

Head over to the PaperArtsy Blog to see what Clare and my fellow teamies made. There are some really fabulous makes to whet your crafty appetites.


  1. See, I'd forgotten about these - I loved the sewn together look for the Halloween witch (Nightmare Before Christmas - if you haven't seen it, you should!). Love the cobweb dress of the one perched so perfectly on her broomstick too. Fabulous Christmas makes too - I love the colours of all those crowns and her hair. An amazing week's work, Lauren - seriously.

    I'm so sorry you seem to have lost your other comments in reverting. How mean of Google. See this is why I refuse to give in to them... they want total control.

  2. WOW! You certainly brought out the best of Clares stamps and I love the little details you have added- such as the extra spooky stitches to the witches face or her dress on the 2nd card. Lush sparkly angel on the Christmas tag and amazing triptic card x

  3. These are fabulous Lauren, fabulous images and a wonderful variety of designs.
