NEW RELEASE! Crafter's Companion Festive Background Die

Hello Crafty Friends!

They new releases from Crafter's Companion are festive and delightful.  The background die, Christmas Greetings is so beautiful die cut in luxury matt foil card stock.  Some simple layering and a sweet bow is all you need to make an elegant Christmas card.

Card instructions:

  1. Die cut background using Christmas Greetings die and red luxury matt card stock.  Cut to desired size.
  2. Cut Vellum card stock the same size as the background in step 1.  Adhere together.  (I used thin double sided tape and liquid glue.)
  3. Mat and mount step 2 to Kraft card stock and then rose gold glitter card stock.  
  4. Mount to red top fold card base.
  5. Optional: die cut rose gold glitter card stock with Christmas Greetings die.  Select pieces to cut from background and mount to card front using liquid glue.
  6. Create double bow and mount to card front using hot glue.
The Crafter's Companion product is currently available on HSN online.

One suggestion: if you do not have Luxury Card Stock yet, I would highly recommend getting a package of your favorite color.  It really does add the extra elegance and shine to a paper crafting project.  Here is the Luxury Card Stock link at the Crafter's Companion online store:  https://www.crafterscompanion.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=luxury+card+stock 

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a happy, crafty day!

Peacock Sparkle mixed media card

Hello Crafty Friends!

Crafter's Companion has so many crafty goodies available on HSN and on their online store.  The card I am sharing today has some mixed media fun involved.

First, I took some Spectrum Noir (SN) Aqua paper and applied SN Sparkle Brushes (from the Coastal collection).  After drying I applied gold foil using the Vintage Lace Background foil die.  Next, I heat embossed the peacock feathers (in the Coastal Collection) in gold onto Aqua paper.  It was colored using the sparkle brushes.  I fussy cut the feathers and applied to the front using foam.
Last, I cut some seam binding and dyed it using the Sparkle Brushes.  After drying I used a hot glue tool to adhere it to the card front.

What have you created using the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Brushes?  Feel free to share your projects on the Spectrum Noir Connoisseurs page on Facebook.  We would love to see them!

Thank you for stopping by!
Have a happy, crafty day.

"Dream" fantastic floral

Hello Crafty Friends!

Popping in today to share a creation using the newly released flower dies and foam from Crafter's Companion.  Oh- the flower creation is a wonderful addition to any project and I adore how the foam flowers turn out.  So easy and beautiful!
Aren't the flowers so pretty?  Never did I imagine being able to create petty flowers like these.  So, if I can do it, then so can you!  

Here is a link to a video to show you how to make the flowers: video link here.
