Celtic Dreams Nurture in Blue

 Hello crafters, hope you're well.  As you know we don't have a design team as such at the moment, but we do have some very talented crafters & artists who make samples for us and from time to time we will sharing some of their Imagination Crafts projects with you. So today, I would like to show you a lovely card, made by Christine Saunders, using the


 
 
Here is how Christine made her card..........
 
Die cut your Celtic Dreams cutting die from cardstock twice. Then, using a  Blue ink pad and stencil brush, ink through the tree branches of one of the die cuts (used as a stencil) onto white cardstock to create a border & ink the rest of the die cut......
 

 
 
Stencil the blue ink through the Marrakesh cupcake stencil 3 times and cut out the images. Layer these on top of one another to form a flower......
 

 
 
Adhere the background to a card blank, use 3D foam pads to attach the Nurture die cut on top. Ink up the second die cut with blue ink and cut out the trees and the mushrooms. Add the trees to the background & the mushrooms to the mushrooms on the main image. To finish add the flower to the right hand side................
 

 
 
Thank you Christine, a lovely card & a great way to show how effective these dies can be.

A Splendid Time Was Had By All


Good evening, I hope everyone had a great weekend. It was certainly a busy one for Imagination Crafts. The Create & Craft show on Friday morning was a big success. Thank you very much to everyone who purchased the Starlights paintsAlchemy Waxes & Chalkboard kits.

This is a photo of the wonderful samples created by Sue, Christine, Lisa, Jennifer & Eileen for the C&C programme, taken in the studio before the start of the show................




Yesterday, Sue demoed the new paints on the BJ Crafts stand at the Sincerely Yours show in Taunton & by all accounts, it was a very enjoyable day for everyone. So, another thank you goes to all who stopped by the stand to say hello & to BJ Crafts too.

We have had fantastic feedback from so many people who loved Sue's demoes both on C&C & at Sincerely Yours & who are thrilled with their new purchases & if any of you are looking for inspiration, we have updated the Pinterest page with chalkboard samples from Sue, Lisa & Jennifer & we've also added the Starlight paints etc., to tempt the rest of you. :-) 

Until next time..............
