Oh Holy Night Edge'ables

It's almost time for our next 24hr Crafting Event on HSN with Crafter's Companion! Loads and loads of amazing goodies! Join us and watch Sara and Jen Tuesday Oct 3rd starting at 2am ET.

I wanted to share a super quick and easy design I made with some of the products that will be on the show. I created this card to showcase one of the fantastic Die'sire Edge'ables Christmas Only Words Dies - Oh Holy Night.

I die cut the top edge of a panel of Gold Luxury Cardstock.  Then I embossed the bottom portion of the panel with Sheena's Festive Embossing Folder - Wise Travelers.  Next I tied a Black Luxury Satin Edge Organza Ribbon, from the New Sara Davies Black & Gold Signature Collection, around the panel.

To assemble the card, I adhered a panel of Shimmering Cardstock - Black Pearl to a white notecard base, then mounted the gold panel on top with dimensional foam tape.  Addin a few crystal rhinestone embellishments completed the design.

Cherry Green Designs

Hey everyone!
Have you seen the new stamp sets that were released today over at Crafter's Companion USA? Oh my goodnes! The NEW Cherry Green Designs stamp sets are soooooo fun! I made a sample card using the Boot-iful set.

So whatcha think? Super fun I say! I colored the image with Spectrum Noir ColourBlend Pencils, Blending Solution and Paper Blending Stumps. Here's the pencil colors I used:
  • Boots - Mauve, Velvet, Blackberry, Smoke, Black, White 
  • Flowers - Mauve, Velvet, Blackberry, Lemon, Canary, Pumpkin
  • Leaves - Pistachio, Sage, Jade
  • Feather - Pistachio, Jade, Ivy, Emerald, Lemon, Canary, Pumpkin, Nectarine, 

Are you wondering how I got the boot so white on kraft cardstock? Well...all I did was stamp the image on white cardstock, fussy cut the shoe out and paper pieced it to the panel. I also cut out a few of the flowers and leaves to pop up for dimension. 

Check out all the NEW Cherry Green Designs sets HERE.

Happy crafting!

3D Embossing Folders

Hello friends,

Good news! The amazing Crafter's Companion 3D Embossing Folders are now available on their website. Go check 'em out HERE.

I used the Country Garden Folder on this card.

The levels of dimensional detail you get with these folders is crazy!

I masked off the an area I wanted to do some ink blending.  I made the area to be the perfect size for my die-cut sentiment. You can use any size and shape mask that you want. I used a range of yellow to red Distress Inks to create a bright and cheerful color blend. After I removed the masking paper, I blasted the entire panel with some Sheer Shimmer Spritz Spray. WOW! Then I mat the pane on gold Luxury Mirror Cardstock, popped up on the card base, added the die-cut sentiment, and finished with sequins.

These folders can emboss just about anything! Paper, leather, metal, felt, tin, aluminum...on and on and on. Seriously folks...these 3D Embossing Folders from Crafter's Companion are super cool! It takes only a couple minutes to make a greeting card that looks so professional.

Check out the Pinterest Gallery which is packed full of inspirational projects using the 3D Embossing Folders. Then...get busy creating!

Take care!

3D Embossing Folders and Edge'ables

Today is the big 24 hour Craft Event on HSN. Sara Davies and Jennifer Tryon of Crafter's Companion are there with tons of great products, inspiration and demos. Hope you can catch them on the show today.

Here's a card I made using one of the fantastic 3D Embossing Folders along with a NEW Edge'ables Die.

I seriously LOVE how these dies and embossing folders turn a piece of cardstock into something so unique! I used green, red and silver Luxury Cardstock from Crafter's Companion. If I could buy a truck load of that paper I would! I just LOVE IT.

I even added some gilding paste to the embossed areas.  The picture below was taken at more of a straight on angle, so it doesn't show all the shine of the paper. But you can see the 3D embossing detail with the silver gilding wax on it.

Don't forget to check out all the Crafter's Companion and Spectrum Noir goodies that are available on the HSN website. If you missed seeing the live segment, you still can check out the products on their website.

Our Live Facebook Party will be going on the entire time during the event, so pop on over and join us there to chat.

Lattice Corner Dies

Hi everyone. We are counting down the hours to the big 24-hr HSN Craft Event with Crafter's Companion. I have another amazing Corner Die project to share with you. Also on this project I'm using the NEW Sara Davies Signature Glamour Collection. Beautiful crafty goodies indeed!

The corner die I used is the Lattice Corner Die Set. I love how it has the stitched looking accents around the edge. I die cut the 2 corners of a panel of Rose Pearl Shimmering Cardstock, then adhered to a card base.

I want to point out that the card base is a Square Side Step Card Base from the Create-A-Card Fancy Card Blanks Set. I used it completely different than what it was intended. I turned it portrait and backwards -- which made it into pop-up card! Check it out on the inside...

CRAZY COOL...right?!!! What a great way to stretch your supplies!

So back to the front of the card. I die-cut the lattice corner die on 4 corners of a white cardstock panel, then stamped the sentiment and layered on black pearl cardstock. This entire panel is adhered with dimensional foam adhesive on top of the card front, which I had wrapped a ribbon around and tied in a knot.

I made the pink ribbon rosebud  out of the Hot Pink Organza Ribbon from the Sara Glamour Collection.

 Then I stitched it to the black satin bow and adhere to the card.

The inside of the card is all decked out with more of the Glamour Collection dies and embossing folder. I know a few little girls who would love to get this card :)


Make sure to join us over on the Live Facebook Party during the HSN show! Many of the design team members will be on throughout the day to party along with everyone.

Corner Dies

Today popping in quick to share a fun way to use the Crafter's Companion Die'sire Classiques Corner Dies.This is another one of the dies that will be available during the HSN Crafty Event July 11th. For this fun project I used the Doily Corner Die. 

This die worked perfectly to jazz up the top of this DIY box/bag. Then I diec-cut another piece from the Rose Pearl Shimmer cardstock to add to the front.. The bird is actually from the new Feathered Friends Create-A-Card die. I just cut it out of and layered on top of black cardstock.

I used the New Spectrum Noir Artliner Brush Marker to write "Love" and mat it on silver glitter luxury cardstock.

The Hot Pink ribbon is new from the Sara Davies Signature Collection called Glamour. It's amazing!

Dont' forget...
Tuesday July 11th is the big 24hr Craft Event on HSN. You will find these corner dies and more.

Like Sunshine to my Soul

These Die'sire Classiques Corner Dies from Crafter's Companion are CRAZY FUN!

This card design was so easy. I started out by die cutting the Heart Corner Dies on the front panel of an easel card bases from the pack of Create-A-Card Fancy Card Blanks. Before removing the dies from the panel, I blended a few distress inks on one of them and down to the first panel crease. I repeated the process on the back panel.

I left one of the panels white on the inside of the card, and then stamped flowers. So when the card is folded up you don't see it, until you open it up. The sentiment and images are stamped in black, and I added some die cut heart accents as well. Those were cut from the the corner dies. ;)

Then I die-cut 2 more corner dies from white cardstock scraps, and trimmed them out. Also blending some distress on them while die was still on the cardstock. These pieces I popped up on dimensional foam tape between the corner die-cuts.

The black ribbon and rhinestones really added to the card design. You can't really see in the pics, but I did add crystal glitter around the cut out heart of the corner diecuts

I love how this turned out! This is one of my favorite color combos. Looks like a sunset :)

Make sure to grab a set of Die'sire Classiques Corner Die sets available on the HSN Craft Event July 11th. It's almost here!!!! YAY!

The 24-hour event will be full of crafting inspiration, ideas, and demonstrations. So make sure to watch Sara Davies & Jennifer Tryon on the HSN show, Tuesday, July 11th, when they'll be sharing plenty of brand new products and innovative ideas with you!

Custom Box with Create-A-Card Die

Here's another project I made using the new Crafter's Companion Feathered Friends Create-A-Card Die that is coming to HSN on July 11th. These dies are great for making quick custom boxes!

I made the box lid using the Red Luxury Cardstock. Love that stuff! Inside the lid of the box, behind the cut out, I adhered clear acetate.

I lined the bottom of the box with silver mirror luxury cardstock and added a couple die-cut hearts from the silver glitter cardstock.

On the edges of the lid, I added some panels of the silver glitter cardstock and then some decorative tape. I also added silver Stickles Glitter Glue, black rhinestones and black ribbon.

Make sure to watch the HSN show on July 11th to see all the amazing samples using this new Create-A-Card die along with all the other new CAC dies.

Create-A-Card Feathered Friends

Hello friends,

I'm back again today with another Crafter's Companion sneak peek of what's coming July 11th to the big Craft Event on HSN.

I just know these new Create-A-Card dies are gonna sell out fast! They are seriously SO.MUCH.FUN!

For my card base, I used the Gatefold card base from the Crafter's Companion Create-A-Card Fancy Card Blanks set.

On the inside of the card, I die-cut the left section of the die, flipped it over to the right side and die-cut again. These dies are made to work perfectly like that! Awesome, huh!

The die set also comes with the heart die so you can do a bit more decorating.

This new Create-A-Card die set, and many more, will be available July 11th on HSN. Tune in and watch the show to see all the great samples, and to see Sara demonstrate using these dies.

The Best of Luck

Crafter's Companion is coming to HSN again on July 11th! I hope you will be watching and that you get your orders in to get some of the great new items. HSN crafting events always have great prices on bundles and shipping.

Here's a sample project I made using one of the NEW Long Word Edge'ables dies that will be on the show. These dies are perfect for larger card designs and scrapbook pages.

This card design is a sheet of 8 1/2" x 11" blue Luxury Mirror Cardstock folded in half. Then I die-cut the Edge'ables Die at an angle. Totally takes a card design to the next level. Worked out beautifully with the Luxury cardstock because it's white on the reverse side.

The stamps I used on my card will also be on the show. They are new Sheena Douglass Stamps. Aren't they are stunning!!! Must have sets for sure! I stamped them on Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock with Black Ink, then colored with Spectrum Noir Markers. Then I fussy cut the images.

What a magnificent greeting to send to someone!

This card turned out just how I imagined it. You can see how perfectly the Edge'able die cut through and embossed the thick mirror card.

I love how Sheena stamps are full of detail. That makes them so easy to color!

Make sure to mark your calendars for Tuesday, July 11th!

Watch the HSN show on your TV or on-line. This amazing 24-hour event will be full of crafting inspiration, ideas, and demonstrations
