Love with Crafter's Companion

I've got a card to share with you that is another way to use the Crafter's Companion Create-a-Card dies.  I die cut the front of the card base, and sprayed the inside with Radiant Rain from ColourArte.  The sentiment was stamped on the inside of the card.

Thank You so Much

 I've got an easy thank you card to share with you.  Using the Die'sire Edge'ables sentiments really make a great statement without hard work.  I will be using this die so much after the holidays!

Wonderful Thanksgiving

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, if you are here in the States! I did! And even though it was a nice long holiday, I didn't craft any. I took a little break and just had a great time with my family. So now, I'm rested, refreshed and ready to get back to it. My sweet nephew did take some time to color this Prima turkey (and he used my new watercolor pencils before I even had a chance to use them - that's love right there!)

So from my family to yours - many blessings!

This simple card was made using the Crafter's Companion Create-a-Card dies.  For this card, I used just the center cut, and replaced the middle medallion after the paper had been spritzed.  I used three motifs for the card.

Thank You Fall Leaf Card

This was a fun stamp to play around with my watercolors.  I inked the stamp with my Spectrum Aqua pens, and then stamped onto dampened watercolor paper.  I re-inked the stamp with Versamark and heat embossed with black powder.  I painted the background with Twinkling H2O's.

Bring on the Butterflies

The sun is shining, but it's cold, cold, cold! So I thought I would share a card that reminds us of warmer days! I stamped three Butterfly 5 images from Technique Junkies and fussy cut the images. I embossed the background.

Thinking of You With Crafter's Companion

  I thought it was time to take a break from Christmas cards and make a bright and cheerful flower card! I still managed to use a holiday embossing folder and greenery from the poinsettia die, but this just goes to show that you can be creative with your season supplies and get more use out of them.
