Crafter's Companion is coming to HSN May 9th!

I'm super excited for this next HSN Crafting Event on Tuesday, May 9th!!! Why?

Well...HELLO...Sara Davies and Jennifer Tryon from Crafter's Companion will be there! As if that's not exciting enough...Crafter's Companion has amazing NEW products that will be launched! And....(drum roll)....they are gonna be the "Today's Special" on the show! YAY!!!!!!!!!

Here's a project I made using the Create-A-Card Circle Centre Dies that are part of the bundle for the May 9th HSN Today's Special bundle:

The NEW Die'sire Create-A-Card dies are so much FUN! Wait till you see the show and all the great samples. Sara will demo how they work, so you won't wanna miss the show.

The pic below is more what it looks like all folded up. When the card is folded shut, it measures 5 1/2" square.  I diecut the base of the card using Crafter's Companion Pearl White Shimmering C ardstock. The butterflies are from another die set (which I believe will be on the HSN show as well) are diecut from Black Pearl Shimmering Cardstock, then rubbed with a bit of Silver Gilding Wax. Wait till you see THAT stuff! A must have in your craft stash!

The Circle Centre Die Set comes with a sentiment die that cuts in the center circle, but I cut it apart and just used the "thank you" of it and glued down on the card base. The flower panels are also part of the set, and I cut die-cut them green glitter cardstock. This Luxury Cardstock is also from Crafter's Companion and comes in a variety pack of different finishes in the same color family.

The silver mirror cardstock for the circle frame is also from a pack of Luxury Cardstock. I die-cut 2, adhering 1 on each side to sandwich the string that I put in the middle. That way it not only hides the string ends, but gives a professional finish to both sides. I love how when you open the card, the center circle flips open.

Here's a quick video showing the card in action.

The butterflies on the card base are popped up on dimensional foam adhesive. The butterflies on the string are sandwiched with a dimensional foam adhesive.  I added some matching rhinestones to the center of each butterfly.

Make sure to mark your calendars for Tuesday, May 9th!

Watch the HSN show on your TV or on-line. The 24-hour event will be full of crafting inspiration, ideas, and demonstrations

Until then...

Have a beautiful day!
