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!!

Hello friends. Hope your week is going well so far. Never fear it's Wednesday, so happy hump day! Today I have a fairly simple project to share with you using the Blushing Rose Collection from Heartfelt Creations. I saw Jennifer McGuire use this technique a few weeks ago and I loved it. I decided to give this technique a try with the supplies I had. So here is my results!

Hello friends. Happy Spring! I was so glad to see the date on the calendar meant that it was the first day of Spring. Even though the weather here in Missouri can be so chaotic, I am confident that the worst is behind us....or I just jinxed it all! LOL Here is a card I created using the February Simon Says Stamp Monthly Kit. I love the images and the colors of this kit. So much fun to create and that is really the bottom line, isn't it? I think we all create to have fun and relieve the stress of daily life. So I found a card sketch on Pinterest and made a couple of cards using the cute supplies from the kit. The patterned paper is from Doodlebug Designs. The matching stickers were included in the kit along with the pink cardstock. I love the color combo, don't you ? Here is another card using the same supplies, I just used a different stamp from the set that was included in the kit. I also used a new favorite set of dies from Simon Says Stamp. It's called Scallop Stitches and it includes three different edge dies. Love it! The stamp set is called Coffee and Tea set. It pairs perfectly with the Doodlebug Designs 6x6 paper pad called Cream & Sugar. So far there hasn't been a Doodlebug Designs paper pad that I don't love.....it's an issue that's for sure! LOL I am actually mailing these cards out to some friends. I know, it's a miracle. I have envelopes and stamps at the same time! I hope they love the cards and they bring a smile the their faces. Thanks for stopping by today! Tomorrow I have a Heartfelt Creations project to share. Continue reading

Hello friends! If you have been reading my blog for the last couple of months, you could probably tell I have been in a bit of a creative rut. So I decided to do somethings to get myself out of it. I signed up for the Simon Says Stamp Card Kit of the Month. I started surfing youtube watching videos of my favorite stampers to see what products they were using. So I found a couple of new-to-me stamp companies that I am really loving lately! The first one is Wplus9.....I love the many different flower images they have. Here is a card I created using a new stamp set from Wplus9 called Kind Soul ..... I stamped the image along the bottom of a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock using Timber Brown Staz-on. Using my Spectrum Noir Sparkle markers, I colored the images. I added a bit of super light blue behind the flowers and then I cut along the bottom of the stamped piece. I stamped the sentiment onto white cardstock using embossing ink and gold embossing powder. After I heat set the image, I cut it out. This was actually a pretty simple card to make except for the coloring time. Of course, I have been enjoying the time it takes to color images as it really relaxes me! You should try it! Here are a list of the supplies - * notes affiliate links: *Spectrum Noir Glitter Brush Pens *Timber Brown Staz-on ink pad Kind Soul Stamp set - WPlus9 - I purchased this set from Simon Says Stamp *Nuvo Classic Gold Embossing Powder *embossing heat tool *Tim Holtz 5" Snips Kraft, Pink Cardstock Bristol Smooth Paper seam binding, twine - Really Reasonable Ribbon button Continue reading

Hello friends! Have you gotten bit by the foiling bug? If you are like me, probably not. It's kinda an expensive bug! Special machines and other supplies can really add up to some serious money if you want to really foil your projects. Well, I got a package from Crafter's Companion the other day. Included in the package was the new Foil Transfers that Sara Davies demonstrated on HSN a few weeks ago. They are super simple to use, require no special tools and are really affordable! Here is a project I created using these new foil transfers! These foil transfer are used just like rub-ons. You choose the transfer you want, cut it out and remove the plastic backing. Place the transfer onto the paper and rub with a Popsicle stick. After rubbing the transfer onto the cardstock, place a piece of the foil over it and lightly rub again. You will slowly see the foil start to stick to the transfer. Ta Da! There are two foil transfer sets and they include a couple of sheets of sentiments plus all kinds of different swirls and flourishes. Here is a closer look at the project. The foil transfers are the sentiment and the butterfly!! You can purchase the foil transfers from Crafter's Companion on HSN right now (link down below) but I am sure they will be on the Crafter's Companion website in a few short weeks. Supplies Used: Die'sire Create-a-Card Nicole Die Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Rustic Cottage 6x6 paper pad Foil Transfer Set 1 and 2 - only available on HSN for now.

Hello friends! I hope you are ready for the March 8th, Crafter's Companion HSN shows! I know I can't wait to see everything that will be up for grabs! It's going to be a great day all day on HSN if you love Crafter's Companion. Today I have another peek at a project I created using a new Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Rustic Cottage. I love everything about this collection! It's all just so shabby chic!! Be sure to like the Crafter's Companion USA Facebook page so you can enter the contests and see the schedule for the whole day. See what I mean? The 6x6 paper pad is full of beautiful papers that are all different vintage, shabby colors. Plus the dies and stamps are all wonderful! I die cut the window from some vanilla cardstock and then using some spray adhesive, I adhered the window on a piece of the patterned paper that had a bit of music on it. I cut this out with my scissors and added the hearts that I die cut from felt. I used a mixed media die set and my Gemini to cut the felt and it was so easy! The sentiment and banners are from the same set. The stamps and 2 banner dies come in one set! Plus the ribbon is from the Rustic Cottage collection, too! Along the bottom of the ribbon I used a border embossing folder and then used a sponge and distress ink to highlight the embossing. This is a super fun collection!

Hello friends! You know sometimes you get stuck in a rut......for me it's a creative rut lately. I have been uninspired lately and decided to change that by getting some different stamp images that require a different style. Plus I checked out the Sketch Challenge on Splitcoaststampers and found a fantastic sketch! I have been purchasing the Simon Says Stamp Monthly kit for a few months. Last months hasn't been touched yet and I got this month's just a few days ago. So I made myself sit down at my crafty table to create something fun with kit I just got and the sketch challenge. Be sure to leave a comment answering my question below! You could receive this fun card! Here is what came in the kit..... There are 3 small pots of Nuvo Embellishment Mousse in Aquamarine, Pure Platinum and Peony Pink. Plus a small egg-shaped stencil, palette knife, mini mister, sponge, cardstock and some Doodlebug 6x6 patterned paper. Plus the cutest stamp set! You can check out the Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge for this week HERE. Here is what I created..... Don't you just love that little chickie? Plus the sentiment is awesome! I stamped and masked the eggs then colored them with Spectrum Noir Illustrator Pens. I stamped the chickie on the card and then stamp him again on a scrap piece of cardstock. I fussy cut out the top of the chickie after I colored him and popped him up on some 3d foam squares. I added some Nuvo Crystal Drops (not included in the kit) at the top and bottom corners plus I used a banner punch on the sentiment panels. I also punched out the smaller sentiment using a circle punch. I love how this turned out and can't wait to find someone to send this cute card! What do you do when you get in a creative rut? If I get 20 comments, I will pick a comment and send that person this cute card! So please tell me what you do when you are in a creative rut. I would love to find out! Thanks for stopping by today!!
