HSN January 10th, 2017 Sneak Peek 2

Happy Tuesday!

Welcome to sneak peek 2! We have an exciting group of brand new items we have for you! It is officially less than one month until our shows on HSN Tuesday, January 10th! Mark your calendars for midnight, 11am, 12pm, 3pm and our big finale at 8pm. Today we’re giving away 7 items, and we will continue to gift 7 items each week in honor of our 7 fabulous years on HSN. Doesn’t that sound like fun? Winter days can be long and cold. Make yourself a cup of cocoa, and let’s get a jump start on our Valentine’s Day and Easter crafting!

First up are our Seasonal Love/Easter Card Layers. This set of card stock contains 48, 4″ x 6″ double sided layers (2 each of 24 styles) and 48, 5″ x 7″ double sided layers (2 each of 24 styles). You’ll get the most brilliant compilation of spring patterns and bordered card stock in our lovely spring palette. Designs in this set include tonal damasks, polka dots, floral prints and more! There are 5 coordinating Seasonal products and our favorite part about these items is that you can mix and match them seamlessly.

Next is our beautiful set of Seasonal Love/Easter Stamps. This set of clear stamps includes 30 images like iris, a cross, an Easter egg and more. Some of the sentiments you will receive are Easter Blessings, Happy Valentine’s Day and I Love You. Think about how stunning your projects will be with this set of wonderful imagery!

Meet the perfect complement to the Seasonal Clear Stamp Set, our Seasonal Love/Easter Inks! We adore our Colorbox stamp pads, and the 6 spring colors are incredibly vibrant. They pair beautifully with our stamps, and produce bold, vivid images. Colors in this set are Cupid (bright pink), Robin’s Egg, Buttercup, Harbor (teal), Hyacinth (purple) and Grass.

You didn’t think we forgot about embossing did you? There are 12 stunning designs in our Seasonal Love/ Easter Embossing Folders. You will get 6, 5″ x 7″ folders and 6, 1″ x 7″ coordinating border folders. Some of the patterns included are floral with ribbon detail, crocheted hearts, wildflowers and more. Oh my goodness, this sweet set is going to create some seriously amazing projects! (These folders were the last shipment in the 2016 embossing folder autoship program and shipped in November. This is your one and only chance to get these if you were not on autoship.)

Our dies are a cut above the rest, and our Seasonal Love/Easter cutting dies are no exception! With sentiments like Be Mine, Hope and Love you can create cards for Valentine’s Day, Easter or any occasion in between! Images include a cross, rose, rabbit and two different hearts. Phrases like Lucky and Hope will create eye-catching sentiments. You will get 10 high quality dies, 4 cut and emboss dies and 6 cut only dies. We can’t wait to see the extraordinary projects you create with this set! (These folders were the last shipment in the 2016 cutting die autoship program and shipped in November. This is your one and only chance to get these if you were not on autoship.)

Say hello to the newest trend in adult coloring, Parchment Crafts! Trace the pre-printed, die-cut vellum patterns to create a stunning card layer. There are 12 different lace inspired designs that allow you to create 72 frothy, intricate layers. Place your completed parchment paper craft on top of a solid color for great contrast and an opaque effect! Let the coloring begin!

Our Parchment Craft Tool Set is what you use to create all of the different designs shown above. This set contains a perforation mat, a pair of curved fine point scissors, 3 embossing tools (small, medium and large) and 3 perforating tools (1 single needle, 1 double needle and 1 triple needle). Because all of our layers are pre-printed and die-cut, you do not need traditional stencils, only the tools to create intricate, artful layers.

We hope you fall head over heels in love with these Valentine’s Day and Easter themed items! To win all 7 of the above items, tell us which is your favorite, and we will draw a winner at random on Friday.

Love,

Anna

Your Hand Finished Christmas Cards – Part 2

Hi everyone, happy Friday!

Now, on to part two of our hand finished cards post. Do you have our Christmas Pop Up Card Making Kit? So many of you have this in your craft closet and we thought we would provide a little inspiration from this kit! If you don’t have this kit already, you can get it here! This set makes a whopping 50 amazing 3D pop up cards! In total you have over 600 festive pieces to play with to make Christmas, Hanukkah or any other holiday card.

For our card we will start by using the dark red card, the dark red interior piece (already cut for you), the Joy to You sentiment, the This Christmas Dear Friend sentiment, 3 large gold foil ornaments, 3 small gold foil ornaments, 4 holly sprigs, 2 gold foil snowflakes, a double snowflake (larger gold), another double snowflake (larger white) and a tape runner.

pop1-1

First, place the interior piece inside the card, making sure that the center support is the tallest. Align it with the sides, leaving an even border on each side. Next, close just the interior and add your adhesive . Close the card and press down to secure. Repeat the process on the bottom side. Doing this step one side at a time ensures that you don’t have anything sticking together.

Layer your gold foil snowflake die cuts, and using tape runner and secure to the inside top of the card.

Next, layer the ornaments as shown making sure that there is no extra adhesive peeking out.

pop-3-1

Add the ornament clusters to the pop up supports as shown. Also run your tape runner on the back of the “This Christmas Dear Friend” sentiment and place on the left support.

pop4-75

Add the “Joy to You” sentiment to the front of the card, and add two sprigs of holly to both sentiments with the tape runner.

There you have it! A beautiful pop-up card that anyone would be thrilled to have!
