Crafter's Companion - New Releases and Excitement!

Happy Monday, everybody!
How are you today?
Personally, I'm great! ;)
I've had a bit of an exciting weekend.

I'm sure that most of you are aware that the big
Craft and Hobby Association (CHA) show is 
going on right now in Anaheim, CA.
It's the biggest craft show in the world,
where all vendors come together and showcase
their wares and upcoming releases.

Well, Crafter's Companion is there as well,
and myself and the other girls on the design team
were given the privilege of working with the 
creating cards to be displayed in their booth.

I can't tell you how exciting it was to see the photos
being posted on Facebook, and to recognize OUR CARDS!
We girls were just going crazy! What an honor!

Well, the Brittish Television show Craft And Create
was also at CHA filming various companies and their product
and we were given the heads up that Crafter's Companion
would be on and that we could watch it LIVE on the
Craft And Create TV's website.

I tuned in to see two of my cards being showcased on TV!!!
The other girls were featured as well, and oh, what a delight!
My husband made the joke that maybe the Queen 
was watching and would send us an invite to visit. ;)
Not likely, but it WAS terribly exciting.

One of my cards that was seen was this little miss
from the Set 24, and the other was this one
featuring the hydrangea stamp from set Set 71:

I paper-pieced it with two different shades of 
purple patterned paper and popped the 
lighter blooms up with dimensionals.
I watercolored directly on top of the patterned paper
with my Tim Holtz Distress Markers
to add some shading and a more realistic look.

I hope you like it!

If you go to the Crafter's Companion store and
click on the individual Stamp-It Australia "Imagine" sets
you can see our cards in the samples. :)

Go check them out if you have time
and let me know what you think.

Have a great day!

  7. Congratulations, your card is beautiful! There has been a lot of interest in the UK about the programme from CHA and crafters were very excited about seeing new stuff (not so pleased that they chose to show stuff from British companies which we can see easily enough!)
