I'm Back!

Hello, is anybody there? I'm shocked that it's been three months since I last blogged. I lost my crafty mojo for a bit but I'm feeling more positive about things and I've decided to carry on blogging.

Hasn't a lot changed in those three months! The main thing being that there are two new craft channels and Claritystamp has moved to one of them - Hochanda. I do like their relaxed pace and I'm really looking forward to seeing more of Barbara's demos and classes.

This is one of my samples from last month's Hochanda show.

I made shrink plastic baubles to go on the stencilled tree. They may look familiar as the scenes are all based on the ones I did for my Wee Folk Christmas Cards.

The bauble is cut with a Spellbinders 2011 Heirloom Ornaments die. I then stamped the scene with second generation Archival Ink. It doesn't matter if it's a bit blotchy as the colour really intensifies when it is shrunk.

As you can see here.

They also shrink quite a bit!

A sparkle paste gold star and a bit of glittered tinsel finish off the tree.

I'll be back soon with another sample and when I've done last month's I'll catch up with the previous ones. I also have some sewing to share as I've been really busy with that. That should keep my Crafty Little Blog going for a while.

It's great to be back.
