Rock On Card With Groovin' 60

Thursday, May 18, 2017
Sharing a card created using Sheena's Groovin' 60's collection stencils and Just For Men collection stamps set. Loving the 60's feel? This collection is for you then. I typically like the shadow's stamp set of the board skater and the birthday sentiments that come with the set. It's so groovy and beautiful. Check out this other project I made with other Groovin' 60's stencil here and another card here using the stamps set, you get what I mean now? It's just too cute to pass on! 

The stencils are great for creating backgrounds for cards, scrapbook layout or even mixed media canvas! I decided to use it as card background by tracing the shape of the stencil's patterns on a watercolor cardstock using Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers and fill in the rest of the traced area with the same markers but using the brush nib this time instead of the fine nib which I used for tracing. Lastly I stamped the board skater image in black over the colored flowers. 



Supplies:

- Just For Men Collection Stamp (Street Wise)

You Fill My Heart With Love Card With Foiling Kit

Friday, May 5, 2017
Wonder what you can do with the Crafter's Companion foiling kit you bought? What type of projects are your favorite when it comes to paper crafting? The two main paper crafting I do are scrapbooking (this is actually what that got me into crafting in the first place) and card making but since it takes longer to scrapbook so I decided to make a card instead today (I should probably get back to scrapbooking soon I hope, pictures of my kids are piling up!).

Here is the card I made using the foiling kit, no heat no mess. Like I mentioned in my previous posts, it's like rub-ons and it works like a charm every time! Of course I had to use my favorite gold and silver cardstocks from the Together Forever collection by Sara Davies (if you don't know by now how much I looove gold and glittery cardstocks). hehe. The thickness of the cardstock is also perfect for dry embossing, it gives you the depth and beautiful texture you can feel on your fingers. Simply love! See end of post for the complete list of supplies.

Crafter's Companion Circle Center Die Debut

Tuesday, April 25, 2017
How did you like the shutter card post I shared last week? The shutter card die is one of the Create-a-Card series that will be available for purchase on HSN on May 9th including the circle centre die below! They will both be sold in a bundle at a discounted price, how awesome is that?! Not only that, if you choose auto-ship option you will be receiving new Create-a-Card dies when it comes out. 

Here is one of the cards I made with the Circle Center dies, if you check out Crafter's Companion Facebook or their other social medias such as Instagran and Pinterest you will see they are a lot of ways using these dies. I also used Sheena's new Create-a-flower dies on this card. For more supplies details see at the end of this post.


The background color is created with Sparkle Pens, to create such effect I first scribbled the pens on a large acrylic block that I use for stamping and sprayed it with some water. Then take a watercolour cardstock and dipped on to the surface of the color and water mixture.

The good thing about these dies is no scoring is required! All you need is a die-cutting machine and it will do everything for you including the intricate designs for both panels (not shown in this picture). I will be sharing more projects created using these dies with you in the next few posts so make sure to come back to check them out. :)

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.


Supplies:
- Die'sire Create-A-Card Dies (Shutter)
- Crafter's Companion Luxury Cardstocks (Purple)
- Precut Card Pack (Kraft)
- Crafter's Companion Foiling Kit
- Gemini Machine

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***
