Can We Say CRAFTER'S COMPANION?

Just love "playing" with my Crafter's Companion supplies! They have all you need! This card is so pretty. When you have the right papers and die cuts you can't go wrong.


Here are the products I used. Some found right at Crafter's Companion or HSN! Always check out HSN, they rock some great deals!

I can't get enough of Crafter's Companion and they just keep bringing me more and more things to inspire me to creativity! Hope you have tried some of their remarkable products. ESPECIALLY the Gemini machines! Can't die cut without mine anymore! lol!! Here's a card I made.
I stamped the flowers with a watermark pad and white embossed it on black. I used a ribbon border for the top of the black piece then fussy cut around the flower edges. I colored the flowers with the fabulous Spectrum Noir Metallic Markers. What a shimmer they create. Wish my camera could have picked it up better, but you will have to take my word for it! It's lovely! I die cut the word Believe a few times and ran some white ribbon through the ribbon border, then put my card together. Here are the products I used! You can find some of them at Crafter's Companion or HSN on Aug. 15.

So glad to have Digital Delights as our sponsor this week!
Go check them out now!
Here's my card!
I always have fun with Digital Delights images and 
this one was no exception. My brother has a love for
cameras and photography, sooooo, I guess this will
be his birthday card come FEBRUARY! I wonder if
I'll be able to remember where I put this card until 
then. LOL. It was a simple card. Image was colored
with Copic markers. I added some white dots for his
freckles and a bit of crystal lacquer on the camera 
lens and view finder.
I used a camera stamp from Fun Stampers Journey
to make the background. I edged the card and 
background piece with sponged ink. Then I stamped 
the sentiment and cut out my image. I added the 
cute little guy to my card using pop dots to raise 
him up for some added dimension. Easy Peasy.

So glad to have Newton's Nook as our sponsor this week!
Go check them out now!
Here's my card!
Newton's Nook stamps are some of my absolute FAVES
and this adorable set was perfect for the Summer Days theme!! I used a wave stencil from NN to make my water. I used an applicator to apply Crafter's Companion NEW inks, two shades of blues, then some yellow for my bright sky. I stamped my images and colored them with Copic markers and cut them out. I used an exacto knife to cut a slit in my "water" so I could place my little tuber kitty there. I torn a piece of brown cardstock to make some "sand" for the sandcastle cat. I raised up the pail with mounting tape for a small touch of dimension.

So glad to have Polkadoodles as our sponsor this week!
Go check them out now!
Here's my card!
I LOVE Polar Bears and these awesome bears came from our fabulous sponsor, Polkadoodles!! All their products are wonderful and coloring this image, using Copic markers, was fun! I decided to go with purples for the contrasting color against the bears. I cut the image out and layered it on an embossed piece of cardstock. I added a little sparkle to the snow, using a Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen. (Love those pens!) 

The layers were placed and that completed the card.

So glad to have Di's Digis as our sponsor this week!
Go check them out now!
Here's my card!
I have many of Di's Digis but I'm not at my regular computer...it's being healed, or...probably not. Sniff. So, I used a card I made using Gerda Steiner, another one of my absolute faves. I bought this stamp set with my friend from 8th grade. We had raised guinea pigs together for a very long time. Great memories! So, when I saw this it was a GOTTA HAVE IT moment. This is the card I mailed to my friend out in TX. I colored it using Copic markers. Boom, done!

So glad to have Sparkle N Sprinkle as our sponsor this week!
Go check them out now!
Here's my card!
I have many friends that have dogs and they are certainly family. We all love our furry family members and it's never easy when we lose one. This is such a sweet image and I hope it brings comfort to someone during their loss. I colored the image with Copics and Spectrum Noir markers. Found some coordinating papers to create my layers. I dotted around the image, added some gems to the flowers and used a Spectrum Noir yellow sparkle pen for the halo. All halos need some glitz, right? 
I meant to add some crystal lacquer to the heart on his collar but...I forgot before I took the photo. lol

So glad to have Digital Delights as our sponsor this week!

Here's my card!
I thought this image was just too cute but I was having such a brain f**t I wasn't sure what to do with it...until...I got it colored with my Copics and die cut it out. I sponged some blue ink around the edges, then I needed to simply choose the papers to create my layout. I didn't want to do too much to take away from the image because it turned out nicely, so a couple of pearls and some crystal lacquer on the water drops and water in birdbath to finish the card.

So glad to have Bugaboo Stamps as our sponsor this week!
Go check them out now!
Here's my card!
This was a fun image from Bugaboo Stamps. I could think of many different options for a card and settled on this one. It's a good image for guy cards too! I used a circle die to cut out my image after printing it. Copic markers were used to color it. I sponged some brown ink on the edges and added some paper flowers and a rhinestone to the flower after attaching it to my image. I found a great wood look background design paper and wrapped some black twine and added a twine bow. Mounting tape was used to raise the image up. I love a little dimension on a card.  Thanks again, Bugaboo, for your wonderful sponsorships!!
