More shares for Anna Griffin's Anniversary HSN show

Friday, February 10, 2017

Hello friends. Today I am sharing more creations from Anna's HSN Anniversary show. Today's cards feature Anna's Lovely Layers and Wishful Thinking dies. These are beautiful card layers to help you create cards like mine paired with other Anna products.

Embossing the layers adds a nice touch to the cards too!

Anna's card toppers make creating cards easy and fast. 

I love how I was able to use them for masculine cards too!

Well that's it for today. 

Have a creative day!


More of Anna's HSN Anniversary projects: Seasonal Layers

Thursday, February 9, 2017

Hello friends! Oh it's good to be blogging again! So last week I showed you some Seasonal Die cards, today I am sharing some Seasonal Layers cards!

Here we go!

Oh I loved making this card! I embossed a sheet of vellum and them colored the back side with Copic markers. The result was really soft.

For this card I used the border embossig folders to create a trellis for the flowers.

Adding glitter cardstock to the back of the embossed images can add dimension to the design.

This might be my favorite. I inked the top of the embossing folder and ran it thru my Cuttlebug. Then I ran a few strips of 1inch paper thru the Cuttlebug and cut out the border embossing folder design to layer.

These cards were quick and easy to create. Thank you for stopping by.

Have a creative day!


New from Therm-O-Web, Deco foil transfer gel

Friday, February 3, 2017

Hello friends! Today I'm sharing a fun project with a brand new produt from Ther-O-Web called Deco Foil™ Transfer Gel. The Deco Foil Transfer Gel is a perfect tool to work right along with your Deco Foil™ Transfer Sheets. It gives a bit of dimension along with incredible shine!

Therm-O-Web Supplies:
Deco Foil™ Transfer Gel - Coming Soon Deco Foil™ Transfer Sheets Emerald Watercolor iCraft® Easy-Tear Adhesive Tape 1/2 in. 3D white foam squares

Other Supplies: Misc Wood Phrase Recollections paper flowers Seam binding blue chipboard button Perfect Pearls mists watercolor paper

Here's how you can create a stunning canvas like I did with any stencil of your choice!

Home Sweet Home Canvas Instructions:

First, spray your canvas as desired, I used a 5x7 sized canvas.

 Cut a piece of watercolor cardstock to layer over the canvas. Apply mist to get desired look.

Lay the stencil over the watercolor paper and use paste to create a pattern. I chose to add some to the top left and bottom right of my paper. The Deco Foil Transfer gel takes approx 60 minutes to dry. The Transfer Gel w ill go from an opaque white to clear when dry.

Once the design has dried on the watercolor paper, cut out some Deco Foil transfer sheets in Emerald and lay over the dried paste. Run thru the Laminator to set the foil. Now you get to be creative.

 Brush the wood die cut phrase with mod podge and sprinkle glitter over it. Use our 3d Foam squares to attach the die cut to the watercolor paper. Then add some paper flowers, a double tied bow and butterfly. The finished project truly is a work of art. I enjoy that the Deco Foil™ Transfer Gel allows you to use a variety of stencils to create beautiful designs. 

Look for Therm-O-Webs new Deco Foil Transfer Gel to hit stores in March.

I can't wait to get it in your hands to see how you'll use it on your next project!

Anna's HSN Anniversary projects: Seasonal Dies

Thursday, January 19, 2017

Hello friends! I hope you were able to catch Anna's 7 year Anniversary on HSN last week! Today I'm sharing some of the cards I created with Anna's Seasonal Dies.

First up is my favorite of the bunch. A shamrock created with the hearts die! So fun right?

All you need to do to create this card is die cut 4 of the hearts with Anna's beautiful green glitter cardstock and score them in the middle so they bend. Then apply adhesive to the backs or use a hot glue gun to secure in place on your card base.

I used the same die cut 3 times to create this popout heart that will fold to one side for mailing.

I just love that these heart dies! Perfect for making a card for your Sweetheart! Valentine's Day is less that a month away now.

I had to make a purple card. Did you know that purple is my favorite color. I hope Anna adds more purple to her collections this year. She's made so many wonderful things this year but I'd love to see MORE! Wouldn't you?

Oh this Bunny. I had to give him a poofy tail! He's just adorable! 

 I enjoyed attending and meeting many of you who follow my blog at Create and I am very thankful that I had the opportunity! I am sure you are as excited as I am about next year!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Have a creative day!
