Yes I am posting the October kit in early December… due to all of the shipping delays, I didn’t receive this kit until late November. It’s all good, eventually things will all catch up. Trust me I am not short of craft supplies in the meantime (I don’t know any crafter that is!!). This is such a useful kit because you will reach for these stamps and dies all the time. The kit is called “statement sentiment” and that is just what it is. The two dies are very versatile because you can use them over the edge of a card or on the face of a card or just as large word sentiments on your cards. Of course, the stamps coordinate with the word statements perfectly. You can check out the subscription box site for the unboxing and a few demos – Crafters Companion Box site. This pretty purple box contains over 195 elements including metal dies, clear acrylic stamps, card blanks, envelopes, gems, different colored ribbon in 3 different sizes and lots of beautiful colored and patterned papers. The colors in this set are really beautiful muted colors in rust, lavender, green, cream and blue with lots of coordinating patterned paper to match.
Sara Davies, the owner of Crafter’s Companion, always puts together a fun kit that is packed with lots of crafty items and new techniques. My kit was delivered with auto-ship through HSN as always. You can check out Crafter’s Companion website for more information. This kit, as always, is a wonderful bargain. 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/project pages.
I really didn’t need to use any additional materials besides some scrap paper for backing behind the sentiments and some ink to stamp the word sentiments. For glue, I used a combination of tape pen (runner), 3D glue gel and I used collall wet glue to raise up a few of the sentiments. 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 are a few of the cards I made – let me know which you like best…..
Let me know if you have any questions, and I would love to see what you create too so please feel free to share! Happy Crafting!!
