Jilliane made some pretty flowers

Sometimes it can be hard to vote up with ideas, but Jilliane stamped these beautiful flowers and made them into cards:

I love the bright colours,  especially in this cold weather!

I made a card This week at Crafting with Chrissy which I love how it turned out. Have a look at it on my other blog Crafty Chrissy CTMH

Wednesday crafting at GCC

Today at the Glenfield Community Centre,  we created a layered card in blues and pink.   I love these colours together and the blue matt really highlights all three inks. I did second generation stamping to get two shades of pink and two shades of blue.

Inks used: CTMH pacifica, CTMH Glacier,  CTMH Pixie
Cardstock used: White Daisy and Pacifica
Stamps used: CTMH  SOM a happy hello

I had some time to play with the inks and I created a bokeh technique card as well.

This is a very simple technique to master.   The best way to do it is to create a template of circles. I made mine out of recycled packages that my dies came in.  Then I used three different circle dies to cut circles. I ink through the circles using ink and sponges. When I get a few colours down, I leave it to dry for a few minutes before I use an applicator with white Daisy ink.

Glenfield Community Centre Wednesday

We had a fun kit to make up last week,  using CTMH taste of summer stamp set and soe red card stock,  bakers twine and washing tape. This is the design that I came up with:

The strawberries are made from felt and we're taught to me yet a friend who makes beautiful felt creations.
