Thursday, November 23, 2017
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I just want to tell you how grateful I am to have you all wonderful supporters, couldn't have come this far without you. Thank you!! I hope you are having a good time with friends and family today and eat that Turkey while it's hot! :) If you missed the post on Monday, check it HERE to enter yourself a chance to win a $10 gift certificate to Crafter's Companion online store! Entry open till 26th 11:59pm EST. 

Made this card using the Garden Vines die from Sara's Autumn Morning collection, I first colored with sparkle pens in fall colors on the watercolor cardstock and die-cut it on a four-frame design. Then I used different color cardstocks in the background to make the cutout pattern stands out, darker color are preferred since the color of the vines are pretty bright on its own.

Lots of love!!

Foiling On Acetate Holidays Card

Thursday, November 16, 2017
After a long hiatus my Etsy store is once again active! I just listed two holidays cards for sale few days ago, click HERE to check it out! Besides I also have more washi tapes for sale and it comes in different designs for you to choose from! 

Here is the new card I made with foiling on acetate, I like to try  out different medium on my card to add special feature for the card. What do you think about this card? 

It's kinda see-through but with some falling foiled snowflakes element on the front. I embossed the sentiment in gold to give it a slight dimension.

Spectrum Noir ColourTint Pencils

Saturday, November 11, 2017
Check out this new ColourTint pencils by Spectrum Noir! If you haven't heard of Graphite pencils before, check out HERE. The product ColourTint is the Crafter's Companion's version of Graphite pencils. These pencils are wonderful, they are many good reviews you can find about them if you follow Spectrum Noir on Facebook. Many users/crafters have shared their opinion about why they choose to work with these pencils. 

Personally I like these pencils because unlike water-coloring pencils the ColourTint pencils dry much quicker and allow you to apply another layer of color/shade without having to wait for a certain amount of time for the first layer to dry. I also find these pencils are rich in colors, you'll only need little water to bring out the colors and the color looks smoother than the watercolors (diluted with water). 

Here is another sample except this one is not using water-coloring paper.

You can still find these amazing pencils on HSN! Follow Crafter's Companion on FB or Spectrum Noir to see more inspirations or even tricks to get better result using these pencils.

Crafter's Companion is on HSN today!! Sara is demonstrating the NEW Gemini Junior machine right now and tune in to see how powerful this machine is! It cuts through different thick materials such as metal sheets, cork, wood veneer, fabric and so much more. You won't want to miss it and the price is amazing! It's less than $150 dollars for the bundle which includes dies, stamps and embossing folders to get you started! WOW!! Best deals ever!

And have you seen the Flutterby Collection?! I can say it's one of my favorites so far, simply beautiful! Made this layout of my little girl and I fell in love with the color combination! 

You will get this Create-a-Card dies in your Gemini Jr. bundle! Isn't pretty?!

What's Coming To HSN?!

Tuesday, October 31, 2017
Love what you see?! This is the new Stamp and Die from the Flutterby collection by Sara Davies that will be soon on HSN in just a couple of days!! Mark your calendar for this November 6th  (or set your DVR to record!) to watch the all day long craft shows on HSN, see Sara in action to demonstrate you how to work with these beauties and show you what you can create with them. 

Look at these cards, they are made with the Framed Wings dies and matching stamp! Isn't awesome?! I love the fact that it cuts only the sides of the wings and leaves the top and bottom of the butterfly attached to the card. This is kind of a next level crafting we are talking about. 

This card is created using the same dies and stamp but instead of cutting it as a whole butterfly I cut it half on both sides on a denim fabric and stamped it with black ink. Possibilities are endless depending on how your creativity!
