Forever is Love

Well it has been a couple of weeks, I had my Carpel Tunnel surgery on May 12th.  I just got the cast off on May 23rd and I have to say my hand is still pretty weak.  Now it has been a long 2 week because if you remember we had HSN's 24 hour craft event on May 8th and I received all my goodies while in the cast, so I to put it aside until cast came off ( was driving me CraZy ).  Below is just some of the items that I ordered from HSN.
 Well I have finished my 1st card since the surgery and if I do say so myself it was worth the wait, and I have come to know that you are only as good as the products that you work with.  From the HSN crafting event one of the items I purchased was the  Crafter's Companion 3D Embossing Folders Set with Stamps, Cards and Rock-a-Blocks 542-657  Bundle for a great price.  This is what I used for my card.  

Crafters Companion Luxury Card Stock

Gemini Die Cutting and Embossing Machine  I have to say if  you do not have this machine it is the best.  HSN always sells out so the next time they have a crafting event make sure you pick this up.

Crafters Companion 3D Embossing Folder Bundle  I used the Regency Swirls 3D embossing folder this has so much depth to it.  Amazing

                    Staples-15141-Trimmer Sheet-Capacity       It is a little had to see in this picture because of the shine on the Card stock but I put a curvy edge on this, looks great.

 Staples-15141-Trimmer Sheet-Capacity  I did the inside of the card with white card stock for writing messages. 

 Staples-15141-Trimmer Sheet-Capacity  I used Dark blue for the Card stock.

Crafter Companion 3D embossing Folder Bundle This Stamp came in the bundle with the embossing folders.  

Crafter Companion 3D embossing Folder Bundle This is the complete Stamps sets you will receive. ( Great Deal )

I had a little Love Dove in my stash that I used, not sure when I got this.  I did color with a clear Crafter Compaions Sparker Markers

I used a love red ribbon that i picked up on clearance at a craft store.

 Any Questions please let me know and as always Happy Crafting!

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!
