Crafter Companion Inspriation Magazine and PC CD-Rom ( Spring Edition)

Crafter's Companion is coming to HSN on May 9th and everyone needs to get ready for some new items.  So if you like or love, Crafter's Companion and Spectrum Noir   like it do then get ready.  Now I would like to take a couple of minutes and go over two cards that I created using the Crafter's Companions Inspiration Magazine and PC CD-Rom .  I can not tell you how easy it is to follow directions with the video and how you will be coloring like the pros in no time out all.  Now I am working on Chapter 4 The Colorwash Tutorial with the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Markers.  First pick out three colors of the Sparkle Markers and Aqua watercolor paper.
The Three I picked Starry Night / Aquamarine / Moonstone

Take your lightest Color make sure it is flowing with color and lay it down on the top part of the page.

Do the same with the medium color.

And the same with the Darkest, grab your water and thick paint brush.

Start Blending until lines look smooth

 Now I did the exact thing with two colors.
Two Colors are Inspired Violet
You are going to do the same thing.

And when you are finshed put your card together any way you like.  It is yours, be creative, make it your own.  Here are some samples of mine.

Please join Crafter's Companion on HSN on May 8TH.

Simon Says Wednesday: Anything Goes

Simon Says Anything Goes Challenge

I love when you start a card thinking it will be one thing and it turns into something completely different, so needless to say the pictures that I did take as I went along don't match.  I got so into what I was doing I stopped taking pictures lol.....  When I started I wanted to do a lady bug card, not sure how it turned into a turtle but it did and I Love it.  The back ground I sponge with Tim Holtz Distress ink Broken China.  I then used a circle scalloped to do the shaker part of the card.  I stamped and colored the turtle with Spectrum Noir Makers.  The stamp is a turtle carrying a present but I changed it to a pot of planted hearts with twine around it.  I then used vellum for the sentiment.

This card is entered in the       Simon Says Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge

Wedneday Simon Says: Fantastic Florals

Ok here we are for another great Challenge.  This one is Fantastic Florals Challenge, this is just in time for Spring.  Maybe it can start getting warm!  The challenge can be any kind of flowers stamped, handmade, store bought, whatever kind you want.  So here is my take on this Challenge. 
 I used regular card stock, and I did an ink resist of the flowers on the bottom and the birds up top.  I sponged Diamond Press Ink in green for the grass and sponged the sky in Ranger Tim Holtz's Stormy sky.  The stamp set and the Folder was a free gift when I purchased the magazine Simply Cards & Papercraft.  I love the tree embossing folder,  and stamps they beautiful. I will let you know I had a little problem with the Stamps and I had to re-ink it over a couple of times. 

 I then Colored the tree with Spectrum Noir markers.  I just followed the embossed lines from the folder.

I then took the die and cut out the little flowers for the tree.  After the flowers are cut I took the Spe…

Video Easter and Spectrum Aqua

Well with Easter coming I was asked to do a project with   Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers.  I am going to show you how to dye Easter eggs with  Aqua markers.  Now everyone knows how I feel about Crafters' Companion and Spectrum Noir Products and this is just one more reason why I LOVE them.  So many things you can do with these products.  Now let me mention this is only my 2nd video and this one I did with a voice over so that makes it my 1st.  Please everyone be nice, lol, and if there is a reason to look on the bright side every person I  have spoke to tells me it gets easier and, lol, I guess we will see about that. I would like to also mention that HSN is having a 24 hour Crafting Event on May 9th watch for some great buys, you can shop for Crafters' Companion and Spectrum Noir items anytime.  Thanks and Happy Crafting!
