STAMP OUT CANCER~ Special Friend

Good morning crafty friends! I'm happy to be participating in the 

We all know someone hit by Cancer, so Scrap N' Stamp is doing a blog hop to raise awareness and funds for the PUSH FOR YOUR TUSH . 
Please check out the link to read Nancy's Story

Scrap N' Stamp will be donating 10% of today's sales towards this great cause! So be sure to hop along and donate if you can. :o)

Instead of "Get Well Soon" cards, the team made cards that would be more uplifting for friends/family battling cancer. 

Here's my card using the Foilpress from Crafter's Companion along with their gorgeous Foil Stamps and Foil. 

I started with the Ornate Swirls Background Foilpress Stamp with the Berry Foil. If you haven't used the Foilpress machine yet, you NEED to...it's so easy and makes elegant cards in a snap! I then used the Special Friend Foilpress Stamp with the Berry Foil and matted it onto the CC Luxury Red Matt Mirror Card. A bow and Red Pearls from my stash finished off the front of the card. 

I still wanted to tie the front of my card with the inside so I used the Thinking Of You Foilpress Stamp again with the Berry Foil and matted it onto the Luxury Red Matt Mirror Card. 

And there you have a pretty card in just a few simple steps using the CC Foilpress and Gemini- the Foilpress can also be used with the Gemini Jr. :o) 

Now you are off to Laurie's Blog to see her beautiful Make! And if you get lost along the way, here's the Hop Order:

Crafter's Companion~ Spread the Magic

Hello, I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend!

Today, I have a card showcasing the Scalloped Edge Rectangle Dies along with Make a Wish and Acorn House stamp sets. :oD You can get all these great goodies from Crafter's Companion

I die cut the whole set of Scalloped Edge Rectangle Dies from Peach and Teal Cardstocks. I then inlaid the dies in alternating colors. 


I then colored the Fairy from the Make a Wish set with Watercolor Markers and fussy cut them all out. Some Clear Sparkle Pen added a little pizazz to my Fairy. I stamped a sentiment from Acorn House in Parakeet SN Harmony Quick Dry Ink and the bow and flower finished off my card. 

See you next time!

Crafter's Companion~ Adventure Awaits

Good morning, I hope you all are having a great start to your weekend!
Today, I have another card using elements from the 


I created my base using the Design Papers from the 8x8 Paper pad. I added the Aged Rope and Charm create a base for my Sailboat from the By The Sea Set. I then added a sentiment from the Seas the Day set and enamel dots from my stash finished off the front of the card. 



Now for the inside, I did my first Pop and Twist Card...so much fun with these Nautical Elements! :o)
I carried the same design from the front with the papers and Aged Rope, but added the  Life Preserver from the Anchors Aweigh set and the sentiment from Seas the Day set. 



For the Pop and Twist Element, I used the anchors and Wheel from the Anchors Aweigh and Sea Life Accessories sets. I heat embossed all the elements 4x to create the shiny look with added dimension.

Well I hope you've enjoyed today's fun lil' card. :)
