Happy Fri-yay!

Happy Fri-yay crafty people!  I’m back again with an entry for the Fusion Card Challenge (see below for sketch and photo).fusionjan24-001

I decided to use both the sketch and the photo and as I’ve been a little bit obsessed with bokeh backgrounds I started by making one using blues (salty ocean, blueprint sketch and peacock feathers alongside brilliant white).  This time I made a background by blending the blues and then I added circles of the blues as well as the white.  I’m not sure that it’s really obvious from this panel but I liked the effect.  I had the other pattern papers in my scrap box on the shelf so I cut some flags to fit the card.  The penguin is a die from Marianne Design which I love.  The snowflake stamp and sentiment are both from a set from Hunkydory For the Love of Stamps that came with a magazine.  It felt very appropriate making this frosty birthday card during our cold snap!


I would also like to enter this card for the Crafty friends Challenge which has the theme animals/birds at the moment and the Simon Says Challenge Anything Goes which is currently “anything goes!”

I hope that you are keeping cosy and that you like my cute penguin!  Thanks so much for visiting my blog and I hope to see you again soon.

Bokeh heart

Hello crafty people!  How are you doing today?  I’m back with another card I made using the bokeh background from yesterday.  I’d like to enter this card into a couple of challenges:

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – Heart

Cupcake Inspirations Challenge – Pink & White

I used the Tonic Studios die to cut a heart from the bokeh background paper as well as a couple of mini hearts I had left over from yesterday’s card too.  I layered a white square of embossed card stock on a pink square and then arranged the hearts in the frame.  I used a stamp from Crafter’s Companion to add a simple sentiment.  I mounted the sentiment on the same pink card and raised it with some 3d pads to add some dimension.


I hope that you like my sweet and simple Valentine’s day card.


Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon.

Bokeh background for Valentine

Happy Monday crafty people! How was your weekend?  I hope you had a good one.  Today I’m back with my entry for the Freshly Made Sketch Challenge which has this sketch….


As it is very nearly February I thought I had to go with a Valentine theme card and I also wanted to use the bokeh technique for this card as I’m still enjoying making these pretty patterns!  For this card I used these three inks plus the Tsukineko white Brilliance Ink Pad.


I pulled out some super cute heart dies from Tonic Studios which I believe I got last year.   The stamp came with the dies and fits perfectly.


I added a few smaller hearts from the same stamp set to finish off the card and here it is!


Thanks so much for popping over to the Ginger Ninja Crafts blog, I hope you will come back again soon.  Crafty hugs
