Shine Bright

I just had to make a card to show you how AMAZING these Create-A-Card dies are by Crafter’s Companion…

This particular Die set is called “Shine Bright” and depending on what paper you use can be versatile and not just for Christmas.

I have the range of these Dies currently on SALE, so make sure to add them to your card and make some beautiful stand out cards this year! 😊

A Grateful Heart….

For this card I started by using a circle Die and cutting out a large circle that would fit within the square card blank that I chose, I then inked my craft mat with Distress Oxides inks in: Wilted Violet, Broken China and Worn Lipstick, spritzed the ink with water and dabbed the circle cut out in to this. Next I used my heat gun to dry the ink while still spritzing with water to get the desired oxidation effect, set this aside.

 

Stamp out your Gorjuss girl stamp and the foxes, colour using Spectrum Noir Markers being sure to layer and shade. Once I finished colouring with the markers I went over the coloured images with my Pencils and further shaded and highlighted the images which make them “pop” even more.

I used the star stamps in the set to create a background, glued the circle on, and then stuck on the stamped images with foam squares.

For the sentiment I chose one from Jane’s Doodles, stamped in black and used clear Embossing powder over the top, added a few dew drops for effect and voila!

 

 

 

This sweet little card was made using the following:

distress Oxide Inks

Spectrum Noir ColourBlend Pencils – various colour packs

Spectrum Noir Markers – various colour packs

Gorjuss Girl Stamp – The Dreamer

Circle Dies

Card Blanks

Clear Embossing Powder

Memento Black Ink

Dew Drops

Jane’s Doodles Sentiments

Sneak Peek!!!

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:

  • Dressed to Impress
  • Fabulous sentiment die
  • Charismatic Clutch
  • Sassy Shoe
  • Flourishing Frame

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!

Happiness

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!

 

The foil transfers adheres to lots and lots of surfaces, here it is on vellum and complimented with a floral wreath coloured with Crafter’s Companion Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers and Glitter Pens.

Stay tuned as the foil transfers will be in stock in my shop!
