We are in Week 2 of Spectember over at Spectrum Noir - "Messy Crafting"
The focus is on Sparkle Pens, Metallic Markers, Midas Ink Pads and Alcohol Inks.
If you are NOT a messy crafter...NO WORRIES! I'm a clean and simple fan. Messy is not my thang ;) But here I am! TADA! Ha! I did some Clean and Simple Messy. Yep...it can be done! I decided to create with one of my FAVORITE products...Sparkle Pens!
Today is Day 10 of our event and the theme is EMBOSSING
Since Sparkle Pens are great for watercoloring, I jumped in with the perfect combination... Embossing and Watercoloring! I only used 2 colors of Sparkle Pens, Deepest Ocean and Sunshine Yellow.
I created a unique color blend on the starfish by "lifting" some of the Deepest Ocean Sparkle Marker ink from the surface of a the watercolor paper, then coloring over with the Sunshine Yellow Sparkle Marker. Super easy and FUN results!
Head on over to Spectember
on the Spectrum Noir website to see more details on how to do this technique.

is about ready to launch 6 NEW Spectrum Noir Ink Pads. Midas Metallic Pigments!!!
Available October 9th on the HSN show.
These inks work beautifully on ANY color of cardstock. Here's a quick sample I did using the new Silver on black cardstock with a few snowflake stamps from the Festive Season stamp set that comes in one of the ink bundles. I did 1st and 2nd generation impressions on this sample, and the ink was amazing!
Midas inks are water-soluble and packed with brilliant metallic pigment, for a bold intense shine on all your projects! Each ink is archival and fade-free with a generous drying time that makes them ideal for blending and embossing.
These are the 2 bundle options availale at HSN, however you can get just the set of ink pads separately if you don't want the stamp sets.
I created this card using the Christmas Bundle which is available on HSN Tuesday October 9th. Turned out amazing!
I stamped the images on watercolor cardstock, then clear heat embossed. The black ink is Spectrum Noir Finesse Pigment Ink Noir Black.
Then I used the ink blender and sponged on ink over the image. When finished sponging, I used a paper towel to buff the ink off of the embossed images. Lastly I flicked water drops for additional texture and interest. Midas inks are water reactive before dry. Soooo cool!!!
I'm sure you will agree, these New Midas Metallic Pigment Inks
will make a FANTASTIC addition to your ink pad collection!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hello crafty friends!
I'm just poppin' in here quick to share a project I made using the FAB NEW Spectrum Noir Inkpads from Crafter's Companion.
Visit the Spectrum Noir Website
to get all the details on these new ink pads, and other products.
I used the New Harmony Inkpads
in Pink Tulilp, Fuchsia, Plum Jam, Orange and Chinese Red. Aren't these colors gorgeous?!
The fairy/mushroom image is stamped, heat embossed, colored and cut out by hand, then adhered to card front. I did add a few fussy-cut layers for added depth and dimension. The fairy is embossed with black sparkle embossing powder. I added Stickles Glitter glue on her wings and the bottom edge of the mushroom cap. It really has great dimension, sparkle and shine. I absolutely love how this card turned out!
I also used the New Translucent Clear Watermark Inkpad
and Noir Black Finesse Inkpad
, along with white and clear embossing powders.
The fairy stamp sets are also new from Crafter's Companion, and were launched with the inkpads on HSN July 11th.

There is absolutely no way to go wrong with these babies! You can color direct from the pen, you can color from a palette, you can flick, you can squeeze, you can drip, you can do whatever your crafty little heart desires. No mixing, no fussing...just pop the cap of the pen and go!

I was so impressed at how quick I was able to make this card. I'm all about quick and easy ;)
The ink that is in the AquaTint brush pens is water-soluble dye-based ink. The colors are fantastic! The pens have a fine nylon brush perfect for painting small detail areas, or even larger areas. Since the ink is water soluble, they blended out with water for amazing watercolor results every time. 21 pen colors!!!
The stamps I used (and many others) are designed by Sheena Douglass and will also be coming to HSN May 2nd.
How would you like to try making this card at home after you get these amazing new goodies in your hands? Wellll....Crafter's Companion has you covered on that! I typed up instructions on how I created my card. You can find the FREE Project Sheet (and many others!) at: https://a.pgtb.me/6VNQLr

It's almost time for our next 24hr Crafting Event on HSN
with Crafter's Companion
! Loads and loads of amazing goodies! Join us and watch Sara and Jen Tuesday Oct 3rd starting at 2am ET
I wanted to share a super quick and easy design I made with some of the products that will be on the show. I created this card to showcase one of the fantastic Die'sire Edge'ables Christmas Only Words Dies - Oh Holy Night
I die cut the top edge of a panel of Gold Luxury Cardstock
. Then I embossed the bottom portion of the panel with Sheena's Festive Embossing Folder - Wise Travelers.
Next I tied a Black Luxury Satin Edge Organza Ribbon,
from the New Sara Davies Black & Gold Signature Collection,
around the panel.
To assemble the card, I adhered a panel of Shimmering Cardstock - Black Pearl
to a white notecard base, then mounted the gold panel on top with dimensional foam tape. Addin a few crystal rhinestone embellishments completed the design.
