Sheena's Perfect Partners Day of the Dead!

Have you seen the newest release from Crafter's Companion yet? It's called Sheena's Perfect Partners Day of the Dead range! The first time I saw all of these sets, I couldn't help but smile; they are all so much fun!

To create this card, I used Sheena's Perfect Partners Day of the Dead: Dancing Skeleton and Danse Macabre.  I love how easy it was to align the skeleton 'parts!'

I colored everything in using Spectrum Noir Markers: IG1, IG3, IG5, BT2, PP5, PL3, OR2, CT4, and the Blender, along with Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens: Crystal Clear, Moonlight, and Harvest Moon. For the splatters, I used Spectrum Aquas: Black and Purple with a waterbrush.

Thanks for stopping by today! Make sure to follow Crafter's Companion on Pinterest for more inspiration!

Henna Gift Tags with Crafter's Companion!

I wanted to share some tags I recently created! I thought it might be fun to keep them simple, so I used a simple Die'Sire Star Die.  I cut them out using Crafter's Companion Watercolour Paper.

I stamped the Sheena's A Taste of India Henna EZ Mount Stamp set and heat embossed in using white embossing powder.

Then, using Spectrum Aqua markers and water, I added color (Purple, Wildflower, Red Violet, Rose Pink, Meadow, Orange, Crimson, and Kingfisher).  Since I had heat embossed, a resist was created. The areas that have the embossing do not hold the color!

For the sentiments on the back, I used Sheena's A Little Bit Sketchy Orchids EZ Mount Stamp set, Sheena's Perfect Partners Pansy EZ Mount Stamp Set and Downton Abbey A Little Something EZ Mount Stamp set.

This is a quick way to create some last minute tags.  By taking that extra step and heat embossing and adding color with Spectrum Aquas, the end result is fabulous!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

The Envelobox Creator

Have you tried the Envelobox Creator yet? It's so cool! I've had it for a bit now, but I FINALLY got a few minutes to give it a try.  It was actually incredibly easy to use.

I used a few different paper from the Sweet Treats paper pack.  These papers are thick and strong and score really well - they are perfect for any type of 3D project!

I also added on a few small embellishments from the Downton Abbey Luxury cardmaking kit (those are coming soon).

This is great for a thicker card, that has several layers and embellishments on it.  You can make almost any size box in several thicknesses.  The Envelobox Creator is a fantastic tool and I'm so glad I tried it!
