This week has gone by in the blink of an eye! There has been so many things to occupy my time both boring domestic duties and also exciting craft play.
On Monday I met one of my crafty buddies while I was out and about and we decided to get together for a fairly impromptu bit of 'play time' on Wednesday evening at my house, along with another chum, who happily was free to join us.
With very little time to plan a project for us to do - I really did leave it until the last minute, mid afternoon on Wednesday I made the card shown below in about 20 minutes.
The main image is a single stamp and is stamped with Versafine black ink and heat embossed with clear powder. The colour was applied with the very fine brushes that come with the Cosmic Shimmer acrylic drawing inks, then die cut using the co-ordinating die, that cuts around the butterflies but leaves the image in the card. The project was finished by mat and layering and a sentiment added from my stash.
Now, I know this isn't a masterpiece but I wanted my friends to see the concept of some new stuff I had just bought and to have a chance to play with it - we always share!
It is a new range of dies and stamps from Chloe's Creative Cards. The stamps and dies used on this card are 'Butterfly Arch' but I had also purchased JAN059 3D Flower, both the stamps and the die set and JAN060 3D Flower Border Builder, so there was plenty to choose from for our cards.
We had a lovely evening, with lots of crafting paraphernalia covering the dining room table; the die cutting machine, guillotine, a pile of assorted cardstock and a heat gun spread across the counter in the kitchen and last but not least an endless supply of tea and home made cakes.......we certainly know how to craft!
That's it from me for now - thank you for dropping by today,
