Any Time is Cupcake Time!

Had great fun this week with a lovely clock kit from Karen Clare AKA The Clock Lady - click the link for more information on Karen's blog 'Craft Time'. Some of you may have seen Karen's clocks when Clarity is on C&C as she is a member of the design team and there is invariably a clock made using the new stamps each month for fresh ideas.

I used the Claritystamp Kitchen Set stamps and practised first on a paper template circle - wish my cake stand was a bit further left but still quite pleased with my first attempt! I backed the cardboard circle that comes in the kit with my own die cut piece of  black card of the Whimsy Double Scallop Doily Die before attaching to the blank CD (also in the kit). You mark the 'times' every 30 degrees around the face and I used the cupcake from the Kitchen Set instead of numerals. Et voila!
Everything you need comes in the kit - you just use your own stamps to design and  personalise it. Karen is starting up some workshops from October  - can't wait for her first one! Workshops are great places for crafters to share information and learn new techniques - oh and chat, drink tea and eat cupcakes ! x
