HSN March 8th, 2017 Sneak Peek 4

Hello everyone,

Welcome to Sneak Peek 4! The 24 hour Craft Day on HSN is almost here and we will be live at midnight, 11am-1pm, 4pm, 7pm and 8pm. We’re excited to show you today’s post and all the shiny new items! Were any of you right in guessing what we would have on today’s post from our clue on Friday? Let’s find out below!

Did you get our Deco Foil Christmas kit last season? If so, you know that Deco Foil makes incredible metallic finishes on die cuts of all shapes and sizes without heat or machinery. For March 8th, we have the Deco Foil in everyday colors! You’ll get 8 sheets of adhesive and 5 rolls of glorious foil colors like purple, turquoise, bright green, pink and yellow! All you have to do is die cut a design out of the Deco Foil adhesive sheet, apply the foil and run it through your embossing machine. Along with the foil, there is an adhesive pen for you to write words and phrases to create your own foil stamped sentiments. Take your die cuts from plain to fabulous with a few cranks of your Cuttlebug!

Speaking of shiny foil, our newest collaboration with Couture Creations is the Go Press and Foil Machine with Foil Stamping Dies! This is a personal size foil stamp machine that allows you to achieve professional foil stamped designs on all kinds of materials like paper and ribbon. You’ll get the machine, a silicone surface protector mat, a pick n’ lift 3 in 1 tool, 5 colors of foil in a sampler pack and instructions on perfecting your foil stamping! Also included are 3 foil stamp dies to get you started. Oh my goodness this machine is so much fun!

On March 8th, there will also be extra foil stamp dies that you can purchase. Both decorative designs and sentiments die designs will be available on hsn.com as 2 separate items.

This next new product is truly unique! We have teamed up with American Crafts and their We R brand to bring you the all new Platform Punch and Stamp system. The Platform Punch uses a magnetic base to ensure perfect punches every time! This all inclusive set has 2 magnetic punches, 20 design templates, 1 stamp block with handle, and 2 stamps. This system will allow you to punch or stamp designs in frames, borders and more for all your cards and scrapbook pages.

We had to share the absolutely incredible Valentine cards and gifts that were sent over the last week or so, and we hope you enjoy them as much as we do. Thank you, thank you for making Valentine’s Day truly special and for sharing your amazing talents. It means the world and then some! A special thank you to Lisa Premo for the cookies – everyone loved them!

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.
