Back again this time with something a little bit different, yesterday Lin and I found a wonderful craft heaven really near to home, I meet the lovely Denise and Jenny from J & C Creations at the CHA and we found out we all lived near each other, Jenny invited me to give her a ring and make arrangements to visit their warehouse once I got home, I have been so busy since we got back that it was not until last weekend that I managed to make arrangements to visit. Wow!!!!!!!!! that place is an Aladdins Cave full of wonderful and unusual Goodies, well as you can guess my Stash Diet flew out of the window I was like a child in a sweetshop. We also met 2 amazing crafters I am sure lots of you have seen and admired their work at shows, Julie Tidey and Lisa Baker, who despite getting ready for shows at Edinburgh and Newcastle and being really busy spent time showing Lin and I lots of new techniques and ideas, thank you both girls, we both came away inspired and ready to try new techniques. J & C Ctreations have an open day at their Premises in Maidstone at the beginning of each month but of course the website is open 24/7. We had such a good time and it was the lift we both needed we were so excited in the car coming home that to Lins despair I even started singing, if you have heard my voice you will understand how Lin felt.
Right down to this weeks card for the Lilis Little Fairies Challenge, which this week is Diamond and Pearls, when we got home last night I scrapped my original card for the Challenge and decided to try my hand at some of the new techniques we had learnt, as you can see I have a long way to go, a bit too much glitter on the flower for instance, but as a first effort I am quite pleased with it. Most of the Products were from my purchases.
The image is the Lili of the Valley Filigree Heart stamp from their latest release, I have coloured it with Copics on Neenah Classic Card, The papers are by FabScrapes, ohhhh they are lush. I have made the border down the sides with Aged Rose Embossing Enamel, and Lavender Crushed Glass Glitter, The simple White Flowers have been coloured with Copics and I have added (a little too much) Silver Halo Mix Glitter, These products are so new they have not been uploaded to the website yet but will be in the next few weeks, but they will be available at the Shows.
Hope you have liked looking at my foray into a different type of crafting.
