Crafter’s Companion Subscription Box 51 – Stamps and Stencils

I wasn’t sure what to expect from this box when I first opened it, but I honestly can say I had no trouble at all coming up with some unique card ideas. This kit has lots of stamps and stencils and truly there are so many things you can do with them. The card stock in this kit is gorgeous. I tried to show a bunch of different ways you could use the stamps and stencils. The possibilities are endless. This box includes over 225 elements, and will make 16+ cards. It includes stencils and their masks, stamps, blank cards with coordinating envelopes, additional card blanks, colored and patterned paper, dew drops, and ribbons. 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 use my Sam Poole botanical stains on one of the cards, I also used some glitter card, and the SpectrumNoir Opaque and Quick Dry inks. 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 for ink blending. Once you work on a glass surface you will agree!

Below are the cards I made and I still have lots more materials from this box to make even more cards! Let me know which you like best…..

I used a light gray for a tone on tone look. First I inked around the circle mask and then I send the stencil to add the twigs and trees.
This is the card I used the Sam Poole Botanical stains. I only used stamps on this card with brown ink and added a few layers behind to frame it all out.
I thought this was a fun way to use the circle stencil. I borrowed the idea from a wonderful crafter named Natasha Foote. Here is a link to her YouTube video showing how to make bubbles it’s super easy!
This card was so simple. I used one of the stamps and made my own patterned paper! I also used the triangle cuts to give it a bit of interest and some pops of color.
For this last card, I used lots of stamps and lots of stencils. Don’t be afraid to mix and match!

I hope you have fun with this kit. Mix and match the stamps and stencils for different looks. 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!!
