Epiphany Crafts Sneak Peek

Hi Everyone

Hope you are all well and keeping warm in these sub-zero temperatures.

Yesterday I mentioned that Crafter's Companion are launching a brand new range from Epiphany Crafts.

Epiphany Crafts produces a number of tools which will enable you to make co-ordinating embellishments for your projects.  The Crafter's Companion design team have been busy making samples for the launch this Sunday on Create & Craft (click here for show times).

For my first sneak peek I have used Blackthorn Fairy from the Fairyopolis Winter stamp plate which has been stamped onto Neenah and coloured with Spectrum Noirs.  The papers are printed from the Fairyopolis Triple Disc CD and the sentiment is from the stamp set.  I have made a coordinating epoxy heart embellishment using the EC Shape Studio Heart tool, EC Epoxy heart shapes and one of the backing papers.  I have placed the embellishment into the centre of the flower and finished off with some black pearls.

Close up of embellishment

Below is  a quick tutorial on how I made the above embellishment with the EC Shape Studio Heart Tool

1)  You will need Shape Studio Tool, Epoxy shapes and paper

2)  Position paper in the viewfinder.

3)  Place Epoxy shape into the tool has show and press firmly with finger

4)  Place insert into the tool

5)  Close lid and press

6)  You have a coordinating embellishment for your cards/scrapbook layouts

Can't believe it's nearly 1 o'clock .... where has the day gone!!  I'm sure there are less hours in the day on my days off lol!  Oh well now off to make myself a bite to eat followed by a quick tidy up and then it will be time for the school run!
