New Release at Crafter's Companion!

It's always so much fun when Crafter's Companion has a new release - and this one is no exception. They have added 6 new dies to the Die'sires Create-A-Card Collection - each one featuring  a sentiment and background design.  I used the Friend die and created a cross between a fancy fold card and a mini album.  When you untie the ribbon, you open the card as well as the inner folder, where I've added a photo mat. This would be such a great way to remember a fun event with friends.
Be sure to go look at the rest of the dies in the collection, and watch Facebook for more inspiration from the design team

HSN Craft Day Today with Crafter's Companion

 The Crafter's Companion Design Team has been busy getting ready for this day ... another HSN Craft Day, and Sara Davies will be back with wonderful deals and beautiful inspiration.  I made this Magic Folding Card for the Big Score segment of the show.  It was really a very fun project to work on, and was not hard to put together using the Big Score.

 Here are the details for the products I used:

And here are the times that Sara will be on air:

What Cancer Can Not Do

I've got another card to share with you today using Technique Junkies stamps.  So many people are effected with cancer, and having an encouraging card to send may be just what they need. I painted Art Anthology Velvet paints on the Wasted Palettini background stamp. After that was dry, I sprayed the Colorations spray over the top.  Then I stamped the What Cancer Can Not Do stamp over the background using VersaMark ink, and heat embossed with black powder.  This was a fun technique to use for this stamp set.
