Crafter’s Companion is coming back to the Home Shopping Network on Wednesday, May 2, with lots of fabulous new crafting goodies! Among them are the new Spectrum Noir AquaTint watercolor paint pens. They are gorgeous colors in a new styled pen that includes a bristle brush, perfect for brushing and blending the watercolor ink.
Also coming are some beautiful new stamp sets, including this Wild at Heart stamp set, which was stamped here as a second-generation stamp (first stamped on a separate sheet and then stamped on the actual watercolor cardstock for a lighter impression), and then watercolored with the AquaTint pens. For portions of the image, I first scribbled the watercolor ink on an acrylic block and used a Crafter’s Companion waterbrush to pick up the color and apply it to the image. For the darker portions of the flowers and leaves, I colored directly on the image with the AquaTint pens. The floral border die is an oldie but goodie Die’sire Edge’ables Floral Dance die.
Tune in to HSN Wednesday, May 2nd for all the new products and demos from Crafter’s Companion!
Today’s the day for some awesome new crafting goodies from Crafter’s Companion! Tune into HSN, as Sara Davies will be bringing a whole slew of new coloring and crafting goodies throughout the day. Among them will be two new tins of Spectrum Noir AquaBlend watercolor pencils, which I’ve used to create this hand-drawn and colored rose.
I love these pencils, they are so much fun to work with and produce fabulous results! Tune in to see Sara in action, you won’t want to miss all the excitement!
Spectrum Noir has some awesome new products coming our way, and among them are these fabulous metallic pencils that color on dark paper! And Spectrum Noir is satisfying all of our coloring cravings with an awesome new line of Colorista Dark premium paper pads to go along with them!
You can find these crafty goodies debuting in the UK on HOCHANDA February 27th, followed by the US debut on the Home Shopping Network March 8th. Stay tuned for more details!
Jennifer Tryon of Crafter’s Companion will be returning to the Home Shopping Network on Tuesday, January 10th, and among all the new goodies she’ll be bringing are some new sizes of Colorista coloring pads, in 6″x6″ and 12″x12″.
These new sizes are perfect for all sorts of crafty projects. Below, I have colored a page from the Colorista 12×12 Exquisite Florals coloring pad with the Colorista markers, and used my Crafter’s Companion Ultimate Tool to create a box top out of it. I used Crafter’s Companion white construction cardstock for the box base.
For this box, I made the sides measure 1.5″, which leaves a full 9″ box with plenty of room for all sorts of precious gifts. The Ultimate Tool, which will also be available during the HSN event, makes it so easy to create gift boxes in all shapes and sizes!
I used the second sheet of matching paper from the paper pad and the Ultimate Tool Springtime Sweets and Cupcake Treats embossing board to create a matching embossed tag for my gift box.
Be sure to tune in on January 10th! You don’t want to miss out on this fabulous crafty event!

Sadly, my time on the Crafter’s Companion Education Team has come to an end, but I still have some fabulous projects to share using some more of the awesome Crafter’s Companion products! These new Leonie Pujol Mask, Stencil and Stamp sets are so much fun to play with! I created a little bit of a mixed media journal cover using the “Create” stencils and masks set and the Leonie Pujol Tangled Tails stamp set
I painted some of the stamped elements with Art Anthology dimensional paints, then spritzed over the piece with various colors of Perfect Pearls. On top of that, I used my Spectrum Noir markers to airbrush some extra color in the background, then finished it with a coat of Fairy Dust shimmer spray. I adhered the piece to a notebook using Mod Podge, then covered the whole piece with Mod Podge to protect it. I love how it turned out!
