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..............

Kirsten.

Mushroom Plaque & MDF Clock


Hello, Kirsten here. Those of you who follow the Imagination Crafts' Facebook page might remember me saying when the Cat & Mushroom plaques were launched, that I badly wanted a Mushroom one. Well, our lovely Lisa gave me one to decorate as a sample for her & she & Sue gave me permission to share it here ...........


 
 
I used various acrylic paints, as well as white & black gesso. The flowers at the bottom are from the Clematis Elements stamp set by Lisa B for Imagination Crafts & there's some stencilling & other stamping on it too.
 
 
I decorated the larger of the set of two MDF clocks in the same colour combination, using the
 Poppy Collage stamp set for the focal image, with a little Diamond Sparkle Medium on the flowers, and I used the smaller MDF clock as a template for the border, that's today's handy hint. :)
