Welcome back to THD's Mid-challenge inspiration post!  We've got more summer fun for you today!  A reminder of the mood board we are working with this month.

Here is my card for the mid-challenge post: 

I made this card for my niece who is just turning 9.  What is more fun to a 9 year old that a pinata full of candy and those hot summer colors?  Not much for sure.

I started with the Lawn Fawn Pinata.  Inked up and stamped inside the negative cut out of the Waffle Flower Inverted Circle Die.  I then colored it with my Copics to match the mood colors.  In the backdrop I used Gina Marie Scalloped Stitched Rectangles with some fun DP.  I used a little printed velum and some ribbon on top of that.  My fave part is the fun sentiment for this set, so cute!

Tag it!

Back again with more Crafter's Companion Sneak Peaks!  You are gonna want to be around for the HSN show in just a few days.  Go here to find out more about it.  

Meanwhile check out this amazing tag mad using their bauble die and some shimmery paper.  

Um Wow right?  I just love the shinny finish and the clean cuts of this die.  I used some DP in the middle and finished it with some sequins and matching silver twine.  OK, I am ready for Christmas now, lol!  

Thanks for the visit!

Tick Tock

The clock is ticking to the August HSN Show featuring tons of new and amazing products.  Most of them are fresh and ready for the holidays, BUT there are some non-holiday items too.  For example:

These new embossing powders and Spectrum Noir Aqua sets are going to ROCK your world.  There are 4 diff stamp sets and they are going to be on special!!! So be sure to join the fun and watch on HSN to get it all.  Yuu can find info here.

Here is a close up of what I did.  I used the new embossing powder to stamp this background heart image.  Once dry I went over it with my CC sparkle pens and let it dry.  Meanwhile, I stamped the sentiment (both stamps from the Aqua sets- for image from the Love set, sentiment from the My Sunshine set) in black and used my Scan and Cut to cut it out perfectly.  I popped it out above the heart and add some flittling little butterflies and pears.  All mounted on a black background to make it  pop! 

Now head on over to CC to check out the fun!

Sketch Saturday 475

H!  What does the weekend have in store for everyone?  Not much here, but a little crafting with friends today!

Sketch Saturday is here with another fun sketch by Alex, lookie see!

Here is what I made for this week's challenge: 

I made this card using one of the Sponsors cute digis!  I colored this sweet guy using copics.  I just happen to have this chipboard sentiment and dots that go perfectly with it.  The die cut is one of the edgables from Crafter's Companion.  I added my own faux stitching.

THD #15- Paradise!

THD is back again with another amazing challenge!  And the competition for these challenges is awesome, you all are creating some super cool creations!  Keep it up!  We hope you are inspired by this fun mood board:

I don't know about you, but this picture is def my idea of paradise with that delicious looking cake! ;)

Here is my creation for this month.  

I used the SugarPea Designs Tropic Like it's Hot set (such a funny name) with an assortment of ink colors to create this beauty of a background.  I complimented it with several layers of cardstock.  The sentiment is embossed in gold in hopes of catching your eye!

Please head on over to the THD blog and check out all the other amazing creations!

It's coming!

I know it is only July, but if you have been to any of the local craft stores you know Christmas is well on it's way.  The Christmas crafts are out full tilt, and if you want them, you have to snatch them up before they are gone!

Which brings us to today's blog post featuring some Christmas product on this lovely July day.  This is some of the new product that will be coming out from Crafter's Companion on the upcoming August HSN show on August 16th.  Click here to learn more!

So without further ado, let me share just one of the creations I've made for the upcoming show using the De'sire Edgable dies, the lovely new Luxury Cardstock and the upcoming embossing powders.

Don't you just love the cardstock, the one is so reflective like a mirror and the other is so glittery!  Also, the edge dies are likely meant to be flowers but who says you can't stretch those dies and make them into snowflakes?!  Here is a close up:

Thanks for the visit.

Shabby Chic Thanks

Happy Monday!  Today is a good day to be alive I think!

Today I wanted to share a recent card I made for Crafter's Companion.

This features the pearlescent cardstock Sara Davies Spring Garden collection DP and Lace Ribbon.  So pretty with those sweet little butterflies.  Also, I used the fun rub-ons with foil that were shown in the May HSN.  They are so cool and fun!   Here is another shot that better shows the shimmer of the foils. 

So darn pretty don't you think?  I just love the shabby chic feel.  

Thanks for visiting today!
