Going round in circles

Over at Less is More this week the challenge is ‘Round and Round’. One of the little ATC Clarity stamps I was fortunate enough to win a while back is the small version of the honeysuckle clever corner so I decided to have a play with it.


Materials Used:
Clarity small honeysuckle corner
small flowerhead stamp
small greeting stamp
Clarity dotty stencil
Distress inks: Barn Door, tattered rose
Memento ink: Rosebud, Cottage Ivy
White A5 card blank

Using the stencil and changing position after each colour I used the pink inks to create the dotty background in the middle of the card.
I then used the honeysuckle corner stamp and cottage ivy ink to build up the pattern in the centre first then extended it out, I also stamped in the corners of the card.
Finally with the rosebud ink I added the little flower heads and the greeting in the corner.

Sorry about the picture quality, still having camera issues!

Thanks for visiting. Take care.


I would like to enter this card into the Less is More challenge ‘Round and Round’.


About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.

    Pippa, what an imaginative & beautiful use of this honeysuckle corner to make the center design as you did. It’s just gorgeous. Very creative too. It made a terrific center motif, then adding to the corners just drew the eye right back to the central flower. Loved the stenciled pink background too. This one is a showstopper! Well done for winning this pretty stamp & knowing exactly how to use it. TFS & Hugs

      Hi Mary, thank you for your kind comments. The honeysuckle corner is just so addictive once you start playing with it. I am now playing around to design our Easter card for this year with it. Results will be posted one day!
