What’s coming up on Sunday TV? Sneak preview.

Hi there!
Thanks for stopping by.

Thursday’s blog is something blue, 
so here’s a little project I have been prepping this afternoon
for a TV show on Sunday Afternoon, 2pm - 3pm.
Yes, that’s right!
I have been invited by Sara Davis (Crafter’s Companion) 
to guest a show for her,
and combine our Claritystamps with her Spectrum Noir pencils.
She knows I love them and use them all the time.

Here’s a simple demo I will be doing,
which shows off our beautiful Wall Flower stamps on craft card.
I had a look what else is for sale on that afternoon show, 
and Sara has included some Craft Card too.
Result! In the back of the net!!

These Spectrum Noirs are so lovely on Craft card.
Check out the blend.
Now that’s what I want to show you on Sunday.


Amazing what you can do with a couple of good pencils 
and a black ink pad.
Mind you, the artwork is pretty key, too!

This wonderful large stamp will be available unmounted, 
together with 3 smaller single flowers 
and their masks on Sunday,



Of course, I shall be up with the lark on Easter Sunday, 
for our usual Clarity morning show, 9am - 11am too.
Although not that usual!

Remember the personalised stamps we introduced 
a couple of years ago?
Handmade by, Designed by, Made with love by and so on?

Well, it’s time to offer you some beautiful new designs!

Maybe you haven’t got one yet,
maybe you are just loving the one you’ve got,
or maybe you have been thinking that 
a new one would make a nice change.

Hahaha! Read back over that paragraph.
Sounds like a bad ad for a dating agency!!!

I meant a new Signature Stamp, of course!!
Oh do behave!!

Tune in Sunday morning to see the new designs; 
they are delightful! 
My personal favourite is the little boy with the birds, of course....



Have a good Good Friday.
Until then, 
xx

Lots of love,

  4. Would not miss the programmes for the world - good that there are two - I might even be lucky this time. One can always hope. My bucket list includes a "Clarity Card"
    Lovely, lovely stamps as indeed are the gentian and columbine, I think they are ---- cannot put beauty into words - brain seized up after a day in Court.
    Best wishes

  6. What a lovely stamp! SO looking forward to your show on Sunday. Haven't got the Spectrum Noir pencils yet as I have been collecting Derwent Colour Soft pencils but they are now at the top of my 'wish list' ! X

  7. Looking forward to Sunday, a good excuse to delay the house work! Have the pencils and craft card - the Desert Storm is great to work - in conjunction with the pencils well, that's another avenue to follow. Presently exploring the Spectrum Noir Aqua Pens and like the outcome very much indeed! ;~}

  10. Hi Barbara

  12. Hi Barbara, this is beautiful, and my favourite colour is cornflower blue, something about that colour makes me feel nicer inside when I look at it :-).

    I'm about to ask another numpty question, can someone please tell me what craft card is like, the texture of it e.g. shiny, smooth but absorbent or rough and absorbent like cardboard, and if a seller says it's craft card is it all the same or is there different kinds, and which kind would I be buying for doing the stamping and colouring in with pencils /paint /ink etc.? Sorry, a lot of questions there but with not being able to go anywhere I can't see or feel it for myself. Thank you.

    Looking forward to Sunday's shows. Hope you get the chance to have some rest tomorrow
    Love Brenda xx

    1. Hi Brenda - I've always found craft card to be a slightly rougher texture than stamping card, but not as rough as cardboard if that makes sense! I purchased some cards and envelopes made from craft card, and they had more flaws in them (little folds and creases) than I had expected, so I don't know if that is normal for craft card, or that I got a duff batch. I'd be interested to hear what others think too. Hope my answer hasn't confused you even more! Susan x

    2. Craters companion do a craft card that Sheen a uses for faux leather. It's rougher than normal but is absorbent and colour pencils work fine. They also do another less brown card called desert sand and this is smooth and Brittany to colour on. XX

    3. Hi Brenda. I'm looking at a piece now and it is certainly a little rougher than normal white stamping card. In fact it's smoother and lighter coloured on one side, which looks OK for pencils, though I haven't tried that yet. I got it mainly to experiment with the faux leather technique, for which it is excellent. I'm afraid it was a one off from a local craft shop so I can't help with suppliers. Sorry, that's not really much help to you guess. x

    4. Thank you all very much for taking the time to help me :-). It sounds like the Kraft card I saw on the website I buy my basic card from is different as it looked a bit stripey and smooth. Guess I'd be best to buy the proper ones from Crafter's Companion, at least I'll know they do work, and it can always be used for something else if I don't like it. I have a problem with rough feeling paper - it's an Asperger's thing, the feel of it or even the noise if someone rubs their hand like to crease a fold in any paper, it all makes me have really bad feelings inside! I know, what am I doing paper crafting, and using chalks, which is another one!!!! I'll maybe wait and see if Crafter's Companion put it on offer, then it's not so much of a waste if I don't like it. I don't buy from Create and Craft if at all possible, they seem to think Scotland is on the moon, and charge so much postage for the privilege of waiting 2 weeks at least for our purchases, long after folk are emailing in to say they have received their exact same item!!! Thanks again, you all have helped, love Brenda xx

  27. Hello Barbara, Yep, I'll be there, watching your show on C&C online while enjoying my Sunday breaky. Really looking forward to your show and all the new goodies (my wishlist for Ally Pally is getting longer ;=) ) Love the stamp - just beautiful! An agree, the Spectrum Noir pencils are FANTASTIC! Shame I won't be able to watch your guest appearance on the Crafter's Companion show on Sunday afternoon as it's Easter Sunday and I'll be at my sister's for "Kaffee und Kuchen" :) But C&C now keep shows for a week, don't they? So hopefully, I can watch the afternoon show on Sunday night or Easter Monday. See you at the Ally Pally week on Saturday. HAPPY EASTER /FROHE OSTERN xx

  30. Hi Barb,

    Beautiful stamp and beautifully coloured too. WOW! I am sooooo happy you are bringing back the personalized stamp, I bought one when they were last out and actually e-mailed your company about 6-8 weeks ago asking whether they were still available to be told you had stopped them but may bring them back in the future and here we are, cannot wait lol! I want one with my blog address on so watch this space lol!
    It will be lovely to see you with Sara, she is such a lovely gal!
    Love & Hugs

  31. Hello Barb. Cant get out of cooking for all the family on Sunday so will have to watch you later when peace reigns once more. Will thoroughly enjoy seeing your demos with my feet up and a cup of tea. Happy Easter to you and yours. xx Margaret Col.

  32. This is a lovely stamp and this blue looks great on the Kraft card. Will see you Sunday and the afternoon programme sounds interesting too. I love the Spectrum Noir pencils and have been using mine this evening together with the blending solution and the paper stumps which I haven't used much before but certainly give a nice smooth finish if that is what you are after. Enjoy the weekend and hope you get some time to relax. x

  34. Hi Barbara this is pretty and reminds me of cornflowers - we had them with our wedding flowers so they are a favourite. I'm hoping to watch before we go to my sisters but will have to play catch up with the afternoon show. Looks like it is going to be fun. Right, must text my friend about your bespoke stamps, she was after one last year and we searched your website.
    Enjoy your Friday. Love Diane xxxx

  41. Lovely effect with the blended blue on the Kraft card, and a very pretty stamp. Will have to record Sunday as we'll be clearing out our kitchen for a new one to be installed from Tuesday. I'm certain it will be chaos, from which I'll escape to the watch the recording. Enjoy at least some rest over Easter.
