Birthday Party Collection On HSN!

Wednesday, June 13, 2018
This Birthday Party papercrafting collection is on HSN today! I created a few cards using the metal cutting dies, embossing folder and foil kit from this collection. This collection is a perfect one for making party decorations, cards, and so on! First of all I have this shaker card which I created using the number dies, the dimensions of these dies are around 1"-1.5" so they are perfect to create shaker card like this. Each of the number on this card is filled with unique sequins! 


Secondly is this easy and simple card using pre-cut decorative pieces from the 12 x 12 paper pad in this collection. All you have to do is punch out the shapes and embellish! For the background I used the non stick plastic film from one of the foil sheets. Killed two birds with one stone!


Lastly is the foiled background (this is the one where I used the non-stock film for card above) card, Another simple card using the pre-cut elements from 12x12 pad. The possibilities are endless, if you are looking for more inspirations make sure to visit Crafter's Companion website or join their Fans Group on FB!


Supplies:
- SS Birthday Party Embossing Folder (Scattered Dots)
- SS Birthday Party Metal Does (Fun With Numbers) 
- SS Birthday Party 12x12 Cardstock Pad
- Gemini Machine

Others:
- Sequins

Find Your Wings Stamps Set - HSN June 13th

Thursday, June 7, 2018
Lookie here!! See what's coming to HSN next week June 13th! The stamps set used on all the following cards is going to be on HSN next week. Other than the love for coloring floral images I'm also into coloring living things which of course not limited to this beauty below. Crafter's Companion definitely hired the most talented designers!

For the following card I first stamped the image, colored it with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers then I filled up the rest of the background in a deeper tone color. To create the tiny white splatters I used a clean toothbrush + white paint, it was then let dry before I applied a layer of gilding wax over it.


Supplies:
- Crafter's Companion Stamps Set (Find Your Wings)
- Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers (Vintage Set)
- Crafter's Companion Pabeo Gilding Wax
- Crafter's Compamiom Embossing Glue Pad

Others:
- White Embossing Powder
- White Paint

This is the easiest of all, I stamped and colored the image with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, fussy cut out and then stick it onto a card front.

I used alcohol inks to create the background for this card, stamped over the bird image in black permanent ink then recoloring it Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. What do you think about the result?

Believe In Yourself Card Wtih Scraps

Wednesday, May 9, 2018
Are you one of those who tend to collect the scraps from your card making? Guilty as charged I have accumulated so much scraps over the years I can make so much cards out of them if I really put my heart into it. Sharing with you today is a card I created with some of the scraps from my previous project, it's not bad in my opinion for a card made with scraps. LOL. what do you say?!

I like the effect of the embossed metal sheet in the middle, Sheena's 3D embossing folder is perfect for this! It brings out the dimension so beautifully. I feel kind of a contentment knowing that I have  finally used some of the things I've been collecting.


Supplies:
- SS Rustic Wedding 12x12 Paper Pad
- Crafter's Companion Craft Metal Sheet
- Crafter's Companion Stamps Set (Believe In Spring)
- Crafter's Companion Stamps Set (Spring Is In The Air)
- Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers
- Sheena's 3D Embossing Folder (Clockwork Dasies)
- Crafter's Companion Embossing Glue Pad
- Crafter's Companion Embossing Heat Gun

Find Your Wings With DIY Background

Wednesday, May 2, 2018
I have recently invested in Ranger's alcohol inks and have been experimenting with it to see the different results. Following is one of the cards I created using the inks for background and stamped over with a stamp from Crafter's Companion named "Find Your Wings". 

After stamping the image I realized the lines on the wings were not as noticeable so I traced them with a white gel pen. I kind of like the background although it doesn't depict my style (I prefer clean look), once in awhile I like to create something out of my elements. Let me know what you think! 



Supplies:
- Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers

- Ranger Alcohol Inks

Spectrum Noir AquaTint Brush Pens On HSN!

Monday, April 23, 2018
Great news to share, Spectrum Noir AquaTint brush pens are coming to HSN this May 2nd! To all Crafter's Companion fans, you don't want to miss out this deal. I myself is a super big fan of Crafter's Companion and very lucky enough to be on their design team, thus I get my first hands on these amazing and super cool AquaTint pens. Following is my first experiment using these brush pens and they are absolutely wonderful! 

Basically these pens are designed similar to the Sparkle markers, they both have brush nibs that allow you to color simple and intricate images. The difference is that the AquaTint is water-based and does not contains sparkle powder like the Sparkle markers do. If you are familiar with the Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers, these AquaTints are the brush nib version. I made a card with the brush pens and loved them! I will upload the tutorial to create this card soon, so stay tuned...!



Supplies:
- Spectrum Noir AquaTint Brush Pens (Blue Topaz, Moonlight, Harvest Moon, Smoked Quartz, Starry Sky, Onyx Black, Amethyst)
- Crafter's Companion Clear Acrylic Stamp Set (Wild at Heart)
- Crafter's Companion Clear Acrylic Stamp Set (Dragonflies)
- Crafter's Companion Watercolour Cardstock
- Crafter's Companion Embossing Glue Pad

Others:
- White Embossing Powder
