Get ready for a whole lot of cards!! This kit is so easy that I just kept making cards and I think they really look lovely. And I still have so many supplies left over that I could make another large batch for sure. This box includes over 180 elements, and will make 16+ cards. It includes metal dies, stamps, cards, envelopes, colored and patterned paper, gems and ribbons. Everything you need. My favorite stamp in this set is the sunflower. It is so detailed that you barely even need to color it. You can check out the subscription box site for the unboxing and a few demos – Crafters Companion Box site.
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 decided to color with pencils this time so that my alcohol ink didn’t bleed through the card front since I was cutting them into shapes. I am not the best pencil colorist, but the images were really easy to color. For glue, I used a combination of tape pen (runner) and I used collall wet 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!
I made a quick video highlighting each card I made. It is posted in my YouTube channel so if you like it, take a look at my channel to see if there are other videos you may like as well (and subscribing would be greatly appreciated!) Below are all the cards as well. Like I said, I still have so many supplies left so I can make many more cards in the coming weeks! Let me know which you like best…..
Mix and match your papers and remember you have a lot of options on cutting the edges. You can cut them in at different lengths for different looks or just use the stamps on the card front – no matter what you do it will look great!! 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!!
