Sew Lovely!!

This new Sara Signature collection from Crafter's Companion hit HSN on September 11.  I'm finally getting a chance to share a couple of my samples.

I love the 12x12 paper pad, the colors are some of my personal favorites.  This is such a unique and clever collection.  Mix and match it with some of the dies you already own.

Peek in the Window!

The Sara Signature Winter's Tale collection is brilliant!  This is probably one of my favorite from this collection, the embossing folder, die, and stamp set Winter View.

You can use this like you are outside looking in or using the other stamps that come with the set you could make your card look like you are inside looking out.

To give the window a little more depth I actually die cut out 4 window frames and using pop up adhesive adhered them together to create a lifted window.

The Christmas tree was stamped on white paper and colored using Spectrum Noir Markers. The background around the tree was inked with Distress Ink.

The brick wall was embossed on kraft paper, and then I added some Distress Inks to bring out the brick pattern and add some color.  

Check out everything that is coming to HSN on September 11 from Crafter's Companion!

Gemini Create-a-Card Christmas Spirit!

Coming to HSN on September 11 is this wonderful Create-a-Card set from Crafter's Companion.  This is so easy to create, yet looks like it took ages to do.  The card smashes flat so it can be mailed in an envelope too.

When creating the background I used Spectrum Noir Harmony Inks Silent Night and Plum Pudding (also on HSN September 11).  They blended wonderfully and with a spritz of water I got a night sky affect.

You get everything you need to create this card all in one die set.

Check out Crafter's Companion to see what else will be available on September 11 on HSN.
