Inspire canvas - Crafter's Companion

Happy Saturday - so glad to be home and catching up on laundry, cleaning my craft studio and spending some time with Tom.  Life is good!!!

I wanted to share another canvas I created for my collage... two down, three or so to go!  I can't wait to get them all finished and hung.  Looking forward to seeing them together.

For this one I used a great set from Crafter's Companion which has a set of stamps and die cuts that match.  It's from the ubber-talented Sheena Davis and this one is called Sheena's Perfect Partners - Sweet William.  I also collaged a bit with the Sheena - A Little Bit Scenic stamp set called Silhouette grasses and the Kimono Paper Moon set.  I colored the main image with Spectrum Aqua Watercolor Markers and used the Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen in crystal clear to highlight things.  I am really happy with the same it turned out.

Here's a list of the colors I used and the Crafter's Companion supply links:

Stamps / Dies - Sheena Perfect Partners Sweet William 
Sheena - A Little Bit Scenic - silhouette grasses
Kimono - Paper Moon
Spectrum Aqua Watercolor Markers - blossom, sunset, moss, bud green

Small framed florals - Crafter's Companion

I wanted to share a quick little project today that I created for my spare bathroom.  I found these adorable little glass frames in the dollar bins at Michaels and thought they would go great on the curio shelf to bring a little color to an otherwise drab bathroom.

I used some adorable stamps from Crafter's Companion - they are the Stamp It Australia - Inspiration collection called Floral Fancies.  This is such a wonderful and versatile stamp set that I have used over and over...

I colored the images with the Spectrum Aqua markers to add a pop of color to each image, then popped them in the frame - the Aqua markers made this project so easy and simple to complete in just a short amount of time.

The Crafter's Companion supplies I used are:

Stamp It Australia - Imagine - Floral Fancies
Spectrum Aqua markers - red violet, rose pink, blossom, lime, bud green, moss, wild flower, sunflower, jasmine, aquamarine, sea green, meadow

I will enter this project into some challenges:

Just Add Ink - photo inspiration
Crafty Gals Corner - anything goes
Through the Craft Room Door - anything goes

Good morning crafty friends - I hope this beautiful Sunday morning is treating you well!

I have a quick share today to show off some of the wonderful new products coming to Crafter's Companion tomorrow...  The Downton Abbey Collection is finally being released for all to enjoy.  Now, I'll be the first to admit I have never seen the TV show, although I hear it is wonderful, but this collection will appeal to almost anyone with it's old world charm and European influence.

The first thing I thought of when I saw the stunning papers and embellishments was heritage scrapbooking.  I love to scrap the pictures of my family, both current and past, and the colors and papers of this pack decorated these pictures of my grandmother so well.  I love the way it turned out!

Blessing card - Crafter's Companion

Popping in today to share this happy, springtime card I created for Crafter's Companion...  It just makes me smile with the adorable stamped image from Barkley Everyday called Special Friend.  The bright and springy colors remind me of this time of the year when my tulips are just starting to open and the daffodils are popping up all over the place.  I love spring time in the Rocky Mountain area!

I colored the image with my Spectrum Noir AquaBlend colored pencils using the colors of sky blue, oregano, kiwi, bison, ebony, dove grey, iron grey, beeswax, wheat, petunia, papaya, watermelon, cherry, soft red and carrot.  A cute sentiment from the same stamp set, and lots of pretty patterned paper brought this one together!

Moving Along With the Times - springtime flowers
Simon Says Stamp - let's do polka dots
Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge - anything goes
