Shaker Card With Create-a-Card Shutter Die

Tuesday, April 18, 2017
Watch out! Some super cool stuffs are coming to HSN next month on May 9th. I'm so excited with this new Create-a-card dies by Crafter's Companion! So grateful to be on their design team to get my hands on them before they are being released. Here is my card using one of the Create-a-Card bundles - Shutter dies, it's hot off the press!

Made this shaker card although it's a little difficult to see the sequins behind the window panels. These dies are undeniably fun to play with, with just a few cuts and you can achieve this multi-dimensional result. I added some foiling elements using Crafter's Companion foiling kit as well as the sentiment. Don't forget to check out the luxury cardstocks too, they come in three different kind of textures such as mirror, foiled and glittered cardstocks all in one pack (10 sheets each) so you can try out all of them at the same time. I simply love the purple, blue, red, silver, green....ok, maybe all of them. LOL.

Happiness Card Wtih Foil Transfer

Friday, April 14, 2017
Have you tried the foiling kit by Crafter's Companion? It doesn't requires foiling machine or heat! It works like rub-ons and it's very easy to apply the foil. Sharing with you today is this card I created on a black cardstock which I think looks really good with the copper foil. I really like the foil designs too, they are different sets available that you to choose from. 

I only colored the flower in the center to create the focus point for the card. These foil kits are available on HSN currently and speaking of HSN, Crafter's Companion will be releasing a bunch of new products on HSN this May 9th. So make sure to check back my next blog post for the sneak peeks! Like I usually would say, you are definitely going to fall in love with the new stuffs. ***grin*** 


Birthday Gift Card Holder with Create-a-Card Stacey Die

Monday, April 10, 2017
Need a card with gift card holder? Check this out! Gift card holder created using Create-a-card dies set by Crafter's Companion. I love this pot of plant dies, they are absolutely too cute and perfect for a quick hello or thank you cards. I have tried cutting these on cardstock, paper, foam sheet, standard chipboard and I'm happy with the results every time! For a more dimensional look I mixed cardstock and foam cutouts for the plant below.

I used the smaller (it comes in several nested sizes) create-a-card die to create the holder itself. The tips to achieve this is to not cover the entire die with cardstock that you want to cut. Only place cardstock on the part you wish to cut out such as the top scallop shape design.

Happy Easter With Classic Floral Frame

Monday, April 3, 2017
Hello! It's time for Spring and Easter crafts, my first project is this Happy Easter card created using Create-a-Card classic floral frame metal die from Crafter's Companion. To fit the theme I decided to design an oval-shaped egg to fit in the oval frame in the center. 

The ombre background and the colors on the egg were created using Sparkle markers. I love the mini dies set, the flower dies are so versatile you can mix and match the shapes to create different flower looks. I usually create only one card for each design but since this is super cute I'm thinking to create another! Oh, and anyone loves a card swap? Please feel free to drop me a message! :)

Welcome Spring Banner

Monday, March 27, 2017
Spring is here! Made this banner to welcome the spring and say good bye to winter. Although it has already been spring time but the weather around here is still pretty cold. However, it's clearly more rains these couple days (April shower already?!!). I still miss the tropical weather that I grew up in, hot summer days most part of the year plus maybe a month or two of rainy season. What's your favorite season? Summer and fall are my favorites, spring would be my favorite too if I wasn't allergic to pollen. Gratefully thanks to the availability of medication able to temporarily suspend the allergy symptoms so I could actually enjoy the beauty of spring.

Here is the banner I made, love the soft beautiful pastel colors. What's your favorite spring colors? 

Card With Crafter's Companion Foil Transfer - HSN March 21st

Sunday, March 19, 2017
I have been into foiling for a long time now, I own a machine that does foiling but I'm not quite happy with the result due to few factors. One of them being my laser printer, it doesn't print image with even coverage of toner thus the foil doesn't stick to the entire image. It leaves the final result with black spots. I'm pretty sure there is nothing wrong with the machine since it functions like a regular laminator except with different level of heat settings.

Anyway, Crafter's Companion came out with this super cool foiling method where heat is not required in the process! It's like rub-ons, the foil sticks to the sticky images and the result comes out perfect each time. Error-free. Love these so much I wish they will release more different designs in the future. Look at the card I created below using their amazing foil transfer. Catch this foil transfer starter kit on HSN this 21st of March, it's a hot deal don't wait till it's gone. 

It's Tea Time Card

Thursday, March 16, 2017
Introducing you today is another Create-a-Card die from Crafter's Companion. If you followed the show on HSN last week then you definitely had been introduced to the following tea cup/pot die already. Check my previous post for the sewing machine design and a card I created with the die. 

I tried this die on a foam sheet this time and it cuts like a butter, nothing sticks to the die at all. I usually use double-sided tapes to pop-up the cardstock cutout but with the foam sheet it achieves the same result and gives a slightly different feel on the hand. Check out other available designs on HSN! See the end of post for a complete list of supplies used for the following card.
