Coming up on July 11, 2017 Crafter’s Companion will be on HSN with LOTS of amazing new products and some returning favorites!
There is an amazing Signature Collection by Sara Davies called “Glamour”….the line is fantastic and I have been sent some to create with. I’ve made tw cards so far using the following dies from the collection:
I have also used the Hot Pink Organza Ribbon and Adhesive Pearls that all belong to this range.
The quality of these products is top-notch! The dies cut and embossed beautifully and even thought they are very intricate they are easy to remove from the die once cut.
I am 100% in love with this range and will be creating lots more projects between now and July 11 so make sure to check back. For now I leave you with a couple of cards!
I used to have “New Home” cards in my Etsy shop but they have been out of stock for a long time and I had been wanting to update them so when I saw the “Home Sweet Home” stamps by Jane’s Doodles I knew these were the update my card needed!
they are super sweet and fun and have lots of lovely sentiments to go with he houses, so make sure to check them out!
I’ve been fortunate enough to be on the 2017 Design Team for Crafter’s Companion and one of the items that they sent me to try out and create with is their amazing Foil Transfer Kit. These kits come with adhesive transfers that make foiling SO easy!
Foiling with these is as simple as 1) choosing your image or sentiment, 2) Remove the backing, apply it to your project and firmly rubbing or better yet, run it though your Gemini, 3) take the plastic protector and place the foil over top and again, firmly rub or send through the Gemini. Then you simply peel the foil off and in a matter of a couple minutes you have a lovely foiled project without having to have a machine, and all that is involved with that!
Stay tuned as the foil transfers will be in stock in my shop!
I currently am loving playing with the Cottage Cutz Dies! There is such a huge selection and you have so many options as to how to use them. My favorite option is to cut the items out of Spectrum Noir Card and colour them using my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers.
I hope you enjoy the pictures and finished project!
This card features a gorgeous stamp set by Altenew, Camellia Build-A-Flower Stamp & Die Set, this is a three step layering stamp for the flower as well as the leaves. Layering stamps add an extra level of fun to stamping in addition to the depth of the image which makes them all the more beautiful to look at! *(Supply list at the bottom of the page)*
The Ton Stamps have some lovely inks that are perfect for layering, I used the Couture Color – Peony Collection set of inks for the flower.
Here are the steps for making this card:
I plan to make this card in a rainbow of colours!
These dies are awesome, you can cut 6 sheets of printer paper at a time which really speeds up projects, combine that with using the Gemini Die cutting machine and you are on a roll!
To build the flowers, I took 3 each of the 2 different petal sizes. After die cutting then ink up the stamps and place the petals into the stamps to apply the ink. Your next step is to watercolour the flowers in your choice of colour (now you need to be super careful as the wet printer paper becomes very delicate).
To speed up the process I used my heat gun to dry the flowers, before flipping the over and painting on the reverse.
As you know, I love sparkle so I then brushed over the petals with a clear glitter pen.
Glue up the flowers layering one on top of the other and once set, scrunch the petals together and shape to your liking. Repeat the whole process with the leaves and presto, you have gorgeous flowers to use for loads of different projects.
