Hi there,

Happy Monday! Can you believe this is our second to last product preview before July 11th? On HSN’s 24 hour Craft Day our hours are midnight, 11am, 12pm, 4pm, 7pm and a portion of the 8 o’clock hour for our finale.

Let’s get started on today’s amazing items! We think you’re going to love them!

Our Vintage Deco Flock Kit gives you incredible texture in amazing vintage colors. You will get 8 sheets of Deco Foil Foam Adhesive and 15 Deco Flock Sheets, 3 each of 5 different colors. Just imagine what you could create with rose, yellow, lavender, teal and olive velvety flocking. Use your Deco Flock sheets on die cuts, bring bows to life and so much more. This is only available on HSN, so make sure to get yours!

Now, on to something so many of you have asked for, more and more flowers! For July 11th we have Favorite Flowers 3, and with it you’ll get 120, 3D flower stickers, 4 each of 30 designs that are perfect for all your crafting projects. Lillies, pansies, carnations, zinnias and marigolds are just a few of the beautiful hand painted blossoms in this set. The great thing about Favorite Flowers 3 is that we have created multiple versions of the same flower type, and you will be able to make bouquets of that flower in a snap!

Our embossing folders and dies just got a whole lot better! Introducing our Bird Cage and Branches Dies and Folders! This set includes 7 cut and emboss dies and 2, 5 x 7 embossing folders to intricate, zen cards. Use these dies and folders with the All About Birds and Butterflies die cuts that you already have (they’re coming back to HSN in July too) to create a delicate masterpiece. Dies include birdcages, butterflies, branches and more. The folders have an elegant all over leaf pattern and a butterfly and branch scene. We can’t wait to see your layered creations!

We are giving these wonderful new craft items away, so leave us a win-worthy comment, and we will draw a winner on Friday. Have a great week everyone!

Bye for now,

Anna

We had such a great response this week to both of our new for the July 11th products. You all love all of fun of Halloween, our Vintage Halloween Card Making Kit and things that go bump in the night! Likewise, our Sending Sympathy Stickers are much needed across the board and will bring comfort and loving thoughts to those in trying times. Over 1240 of you commented to win Monday’s duo and Shelby McDaniel today you are our winner! Enjoy your new goodies, and please share your projects with us!

Let’s take another glimpse of the new items for more ideas!

We know how hard it is to express just how much you care during friends and family’s most difficult times. We created our set of Sending Sympathy Stickers to help you do just that. You’ll get 50 stickers in a beautiful pastel palette, in both silver and gold font that say everything from Sending You Strength to Thinking of Your Family During This Time.

Card prints include gold foil accents, stunning florals, kitty cats and so much more. Combine those with intricate layers, creepy diecuts, scary sentiments, ghostly embellishments, and frightful rosettes to create cards and scrapbooking pages that are boo-tiful in the making!

Now, on to our How To Series for this week. Have you been coloring with your set of Chameleon Markers from HSN’s March show? We have tips and tricks to make coloring and shading as easy as 1, 2, 3! Grab your favorite Perfect Pattern Coloring Card print and your Anna Griffin Palette Chameleon Markers and let’s make a gorgeous, gradient card!

MATERIALS

  • Anna Griffin® Chameleon Perfect Pallete Markers 532-431
  • Anna Griffin® Perfect Coloring Cards and Stamp Set 532-443

INFORMATION

  • Each pen goes from as light as a hint of a tint to rich tones. One pen blends multiple tones.
  • One end has the “Bullet Nib” which is used for outlining, drawing and working in small areas with precision coloring. The other end has the “Brush nib” which gives a paint brush feel by allowing the ink to flow beautifully with color gradation.  Use the “Fusing Chamber” with the marker to color and shade with.
  • Use a light hand when coloring.

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Place the tip of the color end to the “Fusing Chamber” to achieve the color/shade you want.

  • When infusing the nib with the toning medium, for best infusion, make sure your pen is being held in a vertical position.
  • Keep marker on paper the whole time you are shading. It will help keep it from getting streaky.
  • Start shading from light to dark on artwork.
  • Use a timing chart to see the differences in how long to leave the brush nib in the fusing chamber, to achieve light, medium and dark gradations.

CHAMELEON COLOR TONES FEATURE

  • Double-Ended Pen
  • Japanese SuperSoft Brush Nib and Bullet Nib
  • Professional Quality Alcohol-Based Ink
  • Refillable Inks
  • Replaceable Nibs
  • Permanent on Most Surfaces
  • Compatible with all other Alcohol-Based Inks
  • Non-Toxic and Low Odor
  • Ideal for All Paper Crafts, Manga, Graphic and Fine Art

We hope you have so much fun coloring with your Chameleon Markers, and that you will meet us right here on the blog Monday for more new, exciting items! Have the best weekend!

Love,

Anna
