Celebrate.

Good afternoon all and thanks for popping in today, and please join me in giving a warm welcome to our new follower , please feel free to join in , make a brew and relax....

I have been getting ready for workshops this week and I am so excited about getting back with the crafters, well I say crafters they have all become such great friends. Roll on tomorrow and Saturday.....

All MoJo's at the ready ...

Today I thought that I would share one of my samples from the last HOCHANDA tv show....

It is a very quick card but a versatile one that could be used for many different occasions,...

I used the new texture super stencil.....as you know I like to just use part of a stencil...

For this design I used the lower edge and a small part of the middle....

I just used Peacock Feathers Distress Ink , but this looks great in so many different colours.

I started by adding the ink to one side, then turned the card through 90degrees and repeated the process.

Until all four sides had been inked. (Now is it just me , or could this be an animal print by changing the colours?)

Next I just added a word from the word chains...I used Black Archival ink as I wanted a bold contrast with the background....see what I mean....

I did like this but there was just something missing....mmmmm

So I used one of my most used little stamps...the stars from the Wee Fairies ...

Yes, that's better and once again , quite generic....

Some black sharpie and coloured card, and job done...

It always amazes me what can be done with a piece of card, one coloured ink pad and part of a stencil...

These are the sort of cards that if your MoJo goes on holiday just have a play with the design....change the colours, change the stencil, change the word and the star stamp....and just see what you come up with ....honestly by the time you have made a few you will be back in the swing and creative juices will be flowing..

Have you seen any of the new releases from the CHA? So many new products...I can't wait to get my hands on them....more products to play with.....

I have updated all my workshop dates on the workshop page of my blog so if you fancy joining in with us and having a laugh, meeting lovely people and crafting for pleasure....and hopefully learning something new...do email me at jrcrafts28@gmail.com

Do you remember last year when I bought a soup maker ? Honestly it is the most amazing thing....it is a jug one so it takes up so little room....hence I never put it in the cupboard so it is ready for use.

So quick and easy to make fresh soup, full of natural products and good for you...well I love mine so much that I bought one for my parents...and yes they love it too....( don't you Mum) never mind January diet , just get a soup maker...

Must get on, still got my bags to pack ready for Cheshire Crafts tomorrow...

Keep safe and warm everyone...

Hugs..

  6. A lovely bright card today Jo. My mojo went somewhere last year 😢 and still hasn't arrived back yet. I've just left my craft room and it's almost the same as when I went in. Roll on tomorrow when it will hopefully make an appearance.
    See you soon. X

  9. I really like the one ink colour and a simple design. The one layer cards are good to make when you need something quick. Love the layout, do you know I have this stamp and I don't think I have used it yet! Tut, tut! Happy soup making! Xx
