Hello friends. I have another new embossing folder to share with you from Crafter's Companion. This one is called Floral Frenzy and it will be available on HSN in July. I have a few packages of colored foil sheets that I found in my stash and I thought that would a perfect thing to emboss with this new folder! First I embossed the pink foil sheet and then I embossed some white cardstock. The embossing folder is 6x6" so it's perfect for square or A2 sized cards! I used the Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Happy Birthday - Birthday Wish die and it cut thru the foil beautifully using the Gemini Die Cutting and embossing machine. I love the contrast, don't you? Well that is all for today! I will be sharing a few more projects using Crafter's Companion in the next few days! Continue reading

Hello friends! Finally I am back to creating! The dust has settled and everyone went back home. Plus I had a chance to rest, clean my house and catch up on laundry. Boy, I have alot of towels and every one of them was dirty! But on to the important stuff! In July, Crafter's Companion will be having another crafty day. I received some fun goodies to create with and make some samples. Here is a card I created using the Letterpress technique and a new 6x6 Embossing folder that will be released in July on HSN. Using a brayer and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink pad, I inked up the embossing folder. Then I placed my cardstock carefully into the embossing folder and ran it thru my Gemini embossing machine. As you can see, the Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide gave just a nice shadow to the outline of all the butterflies! This 6x6 embossing folder is called Ornate Butterfly. I also using the Crafter's Companion Flights of Fancy stamp set for the sentiment. This is a fairly simple card, except for the clean up of the embossing folder! lol Just keep a paper towel handy to wipe up the ink..... That's all for today! I have another cool embossing folder to share with you tomorrow! Thanks for stopping by! Continue reading

Hello friends! The wedding preparations are in high gear right now but I took a bit of time yesterday to make a couple of cards. These cards are for some friends who are going thru some hard times and I wanted to let them know I was thinking of them and hopefully the card will lift their spirits. I know we all make cards. I also know that alot of the cards I make sit around for a long time before they are used. I am trying to be more pro-active about mailing my cards to my friends and family. So here are my two cards. I created them with supplies from the June Simon Says Stamp Monthly kit - Blissful. I love everything about this kit! This card was colored using the Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers - YG3, YG1, GY3, CT1, PP1, PP4, BT1. I stamped the image onto Ultra Smooth Premium White cardstock using Gray Flannel Memento Ink pad. I stamped the sentiment onto a scrap piece of white and used a label punch and adhered it to the card using 3d foam squares. I used some Stitched Rectangle dies from Simon Says Stamps to die cut the image and the black cardstock layer. I stamped the image onto the pink cardstock using Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink pad in both corners. I used a Stitched Circle die to cut out the middle. Then I added the sentiment panel so that my sentiment peeked out of the circle. I thought this was the perfect card to add some sequins too. I have some sequins but I have trouble using them. Does that happen to you? So I was really happy how this card turned out with the sequins. Hope you are inspired to start mailing out your cards to all your family and friends! I know these two will be in an envelope and on their way tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by today! Continue reading

Hello friends! Sorry it's been a few days since I posted. My middle daughter, Caitlyn, had some health issues and I needed to be with her. Thankfully everything is getting better and she is definitely on the mend. Now I am home and it's time for the countdown to the wedding to begin. June 1 means there are only 16 days until the wedding. Today I am continuing to make these coffee filter flowers....... I bought a huge package of coffee filters at Costco and dyed them using Victorian Velvet and Antique Linen distress ink. I put about 3 inches of water in a plastic container and use a whole refill bottle of the Victorian Velvet and about half of a refill bottle of the Antique Linen inks. Then I just dunked in stacks of the coffee filters and laid them out to dry on a towel lined table. It took at least 2 days for them to dry but I had other stuff to do! LOL For the center pearl, I used the Sizzix Twist 'n Style tool and 22 gauge wire. I will do a tutorial on how to make these flowers later because they are really awesome! I also gave my mom a mission! We needed 25 Frappacino bottles for the centerpieces, too. She was up to the task and drank them for us. So we took the labels off the bottles and ran them thru the dishwasher. After that I wrapped the neck with twine and lace..... I just used some glue dots for the adhesives on these bottles. We will put some babies breath in them a few days before the wedding. The coffee filter flowers in a vase and the bottles with babies breath plus a lantern will all sit on these wood slabs that were cut by my hubby! He cut, sanded and sealed them. Now he is adding some felt on the bottom of them to prevent scratching but also so they are level. Yep, this wedding is a whole family affair! I will share more pictures of our decor after wedding day (June 17). I doubt I will have many regular card projects to share until after the big day but you just never know! Thanks for stopping by today!! Continue reading

Hello friends! Hope you are having a good week so far! It's summer vacation here at our house. Which just means I get to sleep in one whole hour more than usual! LOL As part of the Crafter's Companion design team, I get fun boxes of goodies to try out and make projects. A few months ago, I got the Foil Transfer Sets with Gold, Copper and Silver foil. Now I know alot of people love to foil using all kinds of different machines and such. But these foil transfers work like the old-style Rub-Ons we all used to use for scrapbooking and cardmaking. For these types of foil transfers, all you need is the transfers, foil and a popsicle stick. After trying them out, I decided it would be even easier if I used my Gemini Die cutting and Embossing machine instead of the popsicle stick and I was right! Here is my card..... So these work just like regular rub-ons work. Just expose the sticky part of the transfer and place it on your cardstock. Rub it with the popsicle stick or put it thru your die cutting machine. Then cut a piece of the foil that will fit over the transfer and apply it. Now you can rub it with the stick or put it thru your die cutting machine. I really got the best results by putting it thru my die cutting machine. I tried it on all the die cutting machines I have - manual and electric and the transfers worked great on all of them! Here is a closer look...... It's hard to photograph the copper sparkle but I think you get the idea. I thought this would be a good graduation card for a guy. What do you think? I have been experimenting with the foil transfers and different ways you can use them. I will be sharing them in the next few days! Thanks for stopping by today! Continue reading

Hello friends! Well I took a week off to work on wedding crafts last week. After Memorial Day weekend, I am hoping to be finished with wedding crafts! But I did learn some new techniques that I can't wait to share with you. For today, I have something different to share. It's graduation time now and I have been needing some graduation cards. Last week, Peggy Jo Ackley, owner of Pink Ink Stamps, sent me some of her new releases. They are all so cute but there was two stamps in this group that I just loved and are perfect for making graduation cards! I used my Spectrum Noir markers to color in the super cut Hi Top Sneaker image. As you can see below, I also used a Spectrum Noir Illustrator marker. Both style of marker works well for this small image!! Here is another look at my card! I used the Scalloped Square Layering Basics Die Set and the Modern Chevron embossing folder for this card. The patterned paper is the Perfectly Plaid 6x6" petite paper pack from Lawn Fawn. I actually used that patterned paper to pick my color scheme for my shoes! I added some Nuvo Rosewater Jewel drops on the shoes and in the corners of my card. This card actually measures 5x7" and my papers are only 6x6....so once I trimmed the paper to the correct width, I used that leftover strip and added it at the bottom. This is easy to do when using plaids or dotted paper. I think any graduate would love this card, don't you?? Thanks for stopping by today! Continue reading

Hello friends! Are you shopping on HSN (Home Shopping Network) today? Today is the crafty day I have been telling you about. Crafter's Companion has a bunch of products for sale on HSN today and you can see Sara Davies and Jennifer Tryon showing all the things! Today I wanted to share with you another shutter card project. I used some of the new Luxury Purple Cardstock and one of the new centers for the Centre Circle Die set. I used the matte purple cardstock for behind the sentiment and the glitter purple cardstock for behind the details in the shutter card. You get three kinds of cardstock in one pack - Glitter, Matte and Mirror - come in the Luxury cardstock pack. It's just beautiful and comes in many colors, each color sold in it's own pack. I added some of Sheena's Fanciful Fuschia's that I had made for another project! I love how this card turned out. Well that's all I have for today. I finally finished the wedding invites for my daughter's June wedding and they are in the mail as we speak. I will be sharing the invite in a few days. I am also working on some coffee filter flowers for the wedding reception. I will share those soon, too! Continue reading

Hello friends! The last few weeks I have been working on projects for the Home Shopping Network (HSN) crafty day on May 9th for Crafter's Companion. I have been really having fun with the products they sent me. The new dies and pretty cardstock are really awesome and I hope you will check them out! Here is a project I created using some of the new dies that will be featured on May 9th. I bought a few wooden spools from Save-On-Crafts.com a few months ago. I thought they might be something we could use for the upcoming wedding but they were pricey and they just didn't work. So I thought it would be fun to alter one and decorate it with some pretty handmade paper flowers and paint, etc. Here is the result..... I used the Sheena Perfect Partners - Classic Carnations. This is a beautiful stamp set that also has a matching die set available. That's why they are perfect partners! LOL I dry brushed some white gesso and some pink acrylic paint lightly over the wooden spool. I used a new Sheena die called Cool Corrosion that I cut from some corrugated cardboard. I also applied the white gesso and pink acrylic paint over this. I used some Matte Medium to adhere the corrugated cardboard onto the wooden spool. After I created the flowers, I used a hot glue gun to apply them onto the wooden spool. I added the jewelry grade wire sticking out of the top and added the butterfly. Here is another look.... And a closer look.......... I have been thinking about making a video to show how I created this project.....what do you think? Let me know!! Hope you have a great Sunday!!

Hello friends. Today I have a fun card to share with you using the Tropical Paradise Collection from Heartfelt Creations. I really love the flamingos in this collection. They are fun to color and cut out great with the matching die! Isn't the flamingo so cute? I love how this card turned out! The plumeria flowers were put together using a hot glue gun and I would definitely recommend that if you want to put them together quickly. I stamped everything onto mixed media paper using Jet Black Staz-on and colored it all using Spectrum Noir Sparkle markers and a water pen. Last week I forgot to post my Heartfelt Creations project so I am posting that one here, too. You can see all the supplies used and the exact instructions on the Heartfelt Creations Blog. You might be able to tell but when I got the collection, I just stamped sheets of each stamp onto mixed media paper with the staz-on ink and colored everything. I find stamping alot of images like this really is a time saver. After you die cut them out, you can just store them in a ziploc bag and then make some really pretty but quick cards! You can see the supply list and instructions for both of these cards on the Heartfelt Creations Blog. Thanks for stopping by today! Continue reading

Hello friends! I have always loved to create shaped cards and sometimes it can be tricky. Recently, Crafter's Companion came out with a whole line of dies that creates shaped cards quick and easy. For the card I am sharing with you today, I have used the Die'sire Create-a-Card - Ruth Card base die. These dies are so easy to use. There is one side of the die that doesn't cut, so all you have to do is place that edge on the folded cardstock and run it thru your die cutting machine! Voila'! Here is my card....... For the base of this card, I used Neenah Desert Storm cardstock. It looks just like regular kraft paper but it is super smooth and you can color on it using alcohol markers. Here is colored my images used the Spectrum Noir Colourblend Pencils - White, Pistachio, Petal, Geranium, Jade. These pencils really blended well on this paper! The stamp set is Sheena Groovin 60"s Bloomin' Sixties EZ Mount Rubber Stamp set. I really love the groovy flowers in this set! I stamped the flowers using Versamark ink and added some white embossing powder. After I heat set the powder, I colored the images and then cut them out. I did stamp the biggest flower directly onto my card. Here is a closer look. Supplies Used: Die'sire Create-A-Card Ruth Sheena Groovin 60"s Bloomin' Sixties EZ Mount Rubber Stamp set Spectrum Aqua EZ Mount Stamp Set - Bloom Spectrum Noir ColourBlend Pencils - White, Pistachio, Petal, Geranium, Jade Neenah Desert Storm Cardstock pink cardstock pigment white ink pad white embossing powder winter white seam binding 3d foam squares liquid adhesive Thanks for stopping by today!!
