Damask Diva's Claire Blog Hop

Thank you for joining in the Damask Diva Claire Blog Hop! If you are coming from Cheryl McCain you are in the right place! Don't forget to go to our group blog to enter for GREAT Giveaway from Cindy Fowler. That's also where all the links to each blog is posted in case you get lost along the way!

Claire Flair!

If you participated in Mojo Monday recently you'll recognize 2 of the cards below! I started using this pack to enter and of course {blush} never got them posted. The other cards were made from other inspiration including the Chantilly card workshop using Claire instead.  Claire is full of vibrant color with a bit of flowers, chevrons, polka-dots and denim. It is a very versatile paper that can go country, sweet, or geometric.

Here you get a little peek inside the card! I used stamp set B1408, Buttons, Bits, and Bobs to add a design behind a clear button AND to decorate the inside of the card. You'll note I used white daisy ink to add the button holes to the centers of the stamped images. The Girls Rock! stamp set provided a matching boarder to the zip strip on the front from the Claire paper pack. Love it!
And of course we have LOTS of button assortments to choose from.

 I love the geometric designs that can be paired with this pack! So I remembered that the Chantilly Card WOTG has an exclusive acrylic stamp set that would work perfectly with Claire! This grouping on the front comes from this set! I also used the cake and sentiment from the stamp set on the inside.

What's next? I have 1 more card I haven't finished yet. It is using a design from Deconstructed Sketch no. 85. I hope to add it to the entry and for sure on my Facebook page.
Speaking of Facebook, I'd love you to follow me on FB! It is easy to do, just click on the link on the left hand side of this blog!
