Design Team Goodies!

So today was super fun! My goody box from Crafter’s Companion arrived with some of the AMAZING products that will be coming to HSN on August 16.

So far I have just played with the two new foiling kits, “Contemporary” and “Traditional” Christmas and made a couple of cards.

Here are a couple of photos for you😊

Panda Can’t Even…

So, my husband broke his leg in two places last week (that’s a Welshman for you, trying to skate on our lake like a Canadian), so I’ve been pretty busy looking after him after his surgery, but I’ve finally had a chance to get back at making cards this morning!

Ever since I started carrying The Ton Brand stamps in my shop I have admired the adorable Panda Can’t Even  Stamps and Dies so I decided today was the day!

For this Cute Little card I started with a 4″x4″ card blank, for the glitter frame I cut a piece of black glitter card stock to 3.75″x3.75″ and the used my We R Memory Keepers Frame Punch Board to make a 0.5″ thick frame out of it. On top of that I glued a 3.5″x3.5″ square piece of paper from the Papermania Capsule Geometric Mono 6″x6″ cardstack (which has beautiful gold foil designs on it!)

The Panda’s were then heat embossed with black embossing powder, die cut and then mounted onto the front using foam squares.

The hearts were cut out of red glitter cardstock using my Cricut Explore Air machine (available upon request).

Below is the list of items used:

Gold is beautiful! Foiling using Honey Bee Stamps

If you haven’t checked out Honey Bee Stamps you must! Their items are gorgeous and great quality.  In this card their Zen Floral was a perfect image to be gold foiled, and was very nicely complimented by gold glitter cardstock, and classic black & white stripe paper.
