These little critters in the peek-a-boo subscription box are just too cute! It is a fairly simple box, but the cards you can make are just so sweet. The general idea is that you can create the front and backs of these animals and the great part is that ONE die fits all of the shapes! Genius! There are plenty of other goodies in this kit and so much of it will be re-usable items. Let’s take a look at what is in this month’s kit…
Sara Davies, the owner of Crafter’s Companion, has given you just about everything you need to make truly beautiful cards. The November kit includes over 230 elements in total! You will get 4 metal dies, 25 clear acrylic stamps, ribbon, adhesive pearls, 24 sheets of patterned paper, 24 sheets of solid paper, and 24 card blanks in three different sizes with coordinating envelopes. My kit was delivered with auto-ship through HSN as always. You can check out Crafter’s Companion website for more information. This kit is a wonderful bargain. Each kit offers different items and will show you new techniques.
There is a Facebook group that you can join once you subscribe which provides lots of community support and loads of examples, plus Sara also has a monthly card kit site that you can refer to for demos and project pages.
In addition to this kit, I used several sheets of Crafter’s Companion Stamping Card. This is a very heavy weight white cardstock that is excellent for stamping and also can be used for layers or card blanks. I used a few different types of nesting dies to build the frames. I also used my Spectrum Noir Tri-blend markers for coloring in all of the critters. As you can see in one of the images below, I stamped out and colored all in one sitting. I watched a movie and colored these cuties- to color 16 images, it took me about 2 hours. To secure my projects, I mainly used collall wet glue, but I also used a 3-D silicon glue to help raise some of my elements. Crafter’s Companion sells a 3-D glue gel that adds dimension depending on how thick you lay it on. I highly recommend this glue!!! I would also recommend the Crafter’s Companion glass mat. It is a true game changer. Once you work on a glass surface you will agree!
Here’s a brief video of the cards I have made with detailed pictures below…..
This kit is just so much fun – I will definitely use these stamps and dies in the future. Please let me know if you have any questions and I would love to see what you create, so please feel free to share! Happy Crafting!!
