Crafter's Companion HSN Hop!

If you are looking for The Alley Way Stamps Blog Hop, click HERE or scroll down!

Hi! Today, I am hopping along with Crafter's Companion in honor of Sara Davies on HSN July 1! YAY! Sara will be showcasing a TON of products on HSN this time around including some of the new Die'Sire Edge'ables (which I happen to love).  So, because I love them so much and because I'm so excited that Sara is sharing them, I made a shaker card using the Thank You So Much Edge'able.

Oh, and I'm GIVING ONE AWAY, too!!! Yup! Read on for the details!

To create the shaker, I cut a window out of white cardstock and then die cut the "Thank You" and adhered it on.  I created that ombre effect with Spectrum Noirs BT3 and BT4.  For the background panel, I stamped some little bugs from the EZ Mount Sentimentals: Nature set and colored them in using OR3, DG2, DG3, DR3.  I added some Distress Ink: Broken China to emulate a sky.

Sara will be showing off the Ultimate Tool, some Spectrum Noir Markers, Create-A-Card dies, the Boxer Board, and more, not even including the Edge'ables! You don't want to miss out on all of the goodies!

Prestige Dies Sneak Peek

This week, Crafter's Companion will be releasing some more fantastic dies called the Prestige Collection. This dies are so pretty and intricate!

I used the With Great Love die for this card.  I simply die cut it from white cardstock and then used some Spectrum Aquas to give it a soft, watercolored feel.  I used Crimson, Aquamarine, Yellow.

For the background, I printed out papers from the Destinations CD Rom.  I think that subtle pattern pairs well with the soft watercolor look of the die.  And I love the pop of the yellow against the blue!

I added a few score lines to the bottom front of the card, just to give it a little more interest, using my Ultimate Tool.  I just love all of the little details of these dies - they come out soon, so you will see what I mean! :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Sweet New Release!

Today's the big day! It's the Sweet Stamp Shop New Release!

I had a blast playing around with these sets (I mean, how cute are these treats?!).  They are on the smaller side, which I love because not only do they work on cards and layouts, you can use them in planners too! This set is called 3x3 Treats.

That hilarious sentiment is from the 2x6 Little Cooler.  Yet again, ALL stamps seem to always work together.  Just one of the things I love about Sweet! I colored in everything with colored pencils and added some Glossy Accents, just to give a little bit of that real look to the ice cream and Popsicle.

And really, how much fun are the donuts? I combined the 3x3 Treats set with Alpha Tabs to make my own punny sentiment. I added some chunky glitter because, well, I wanted sparkly sprinkles on my donut.

And lastly, I pulled out the 'ol planner and started to get stamp happy.  The new 4x6 Just Icons is fabulous for planners (and cards, too!).  I'm not even a 'planner person' and these stamps make my planner look pretty awesome.  Sometimes I feel like Sweet can secretly read my mind because the stamp sets always seem to be exactly what I need!

OK, now RUN to the Sweet Store.  Don't walk.  For real, well virtually run, I guess.  These things sell out like hot cakes.

Stamps: Sweet Stamp Shop
