New clear border stamps from Chocolate Baroque

Good morning folks, and a Happy Monday to you. This is my very favourite kind of Monday .... one where I don't have to go to work lol. This mornings card features the fabby new clear border stamps from Chocolate Baroque, this set is called Landscape Edges and its going to be such a useful stamp, it won't be far from my craft desk that is for certain. I've combined the stone wall stamp ad the cloudy sky stamp from the new set with some old favourites, the gorgeous thatched cottages from English Cottages

I've Stamped the stone wall and clouds with versmarks and simply swiped over the top with PanPastels (Ultramarine blue  and the tint for the sky and Neutral Grey for the wall, then I've added a little shading to the wall with derwent pastel pencils.

The cottages have been stamped with black archival ink and coloured with distress markers.

The bird stamp is also from Landscape Edges and the sentiment is from Home Sweet Home.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Charisma Cardz: anything goes
QKR STampede: anything goes
Natalie and Amy's: something old and something new

Well I'm going to grab a couple of hours in my craftroom and make the most of my day off work.
 Thanks for popping by today,
Claire xx


  1. This is stunning Claire, I had to have the edge stamps as soon as I saw them, but had forgotten that I have the cottages somewhere. They go so well together, I love this scene that you've made with them.

  3. Very effective indeed - I particularly like the way you made three panels but still depicted the scene with foreground & sky.
