Emboss Resist with the eBrush

Last week I traveled to Florida with Lisa Bearnson for the launch of the NEW eBrush airbrush machine by Craftwell. The show went fantastic! And everything sold out. But don’t worry, for those of you who are still looking into one for yourself, there is more stock coming. Yay! (Be sure to tune into HSN on June 11th!)

This machine is so much fun to use! I will be sharing the projects I created over the next little while, but today I wanted to share with you a project and tutorial that went up today on the HSN Blog.


For this page, I used clear embossing powder along with the eBrush to create the variegated pattern in the top left quadrant of this page. This technique is a lot of fun to do, and is actually quite simple. For full step-by-step photos be sure to stop by Lisa’s HSN Blog Post HERE.




Aren’t these cute papers and embellishments?! All of them are included in the Well-Versed Papercrafting Kit available at HSN … and guess what?! It’s even on sale right now. I love all of the papers, die cuts, chipboard pieces, and felt accents that are included in this kit. A lot of the pieces layer on top of each other to allow you to achieve a layered look, OR you can use them separately if you desire.





I had so much fun with this technique, that I decided to give it a go on a card.



The phrase on this card is also from the Well-Versed Papercrafting Kit. Sequins are a mix between Hazel & Ruby and Pebbles Inc. The green letter stickers are by Echo Park Paper, and the arrow stickers are by Freckled Fawn.

Thanks so much for stopping by!


Stamping & Coloring on Cards

As part of the 24-Hour Craft Day on HSN last month, I created several projects using American Crafts Chromatix markers. Unfortunately, the markers sold out and are no longer available at HSN.com, but I thought I would still share with you what I made.


For this card, I combined stamps together with a couple of the phrase stickers from the Inspired Inc. Mega Stickers Kit.













For this card I tried coloring the markers directly to a solid floral stamp. I love the way the colors mixed together before stamping them on the paper. The card sentiment is again from the Inspired Inc. Mega Sticker Kit.





And finally, I created a scrapbook page with a stamped city skyline. I love the watercolor effect I was able to achieve using these markers. So fun!






That’s it for today! I’ll be back again soon with more shares. I hope you are having a lovely Spring!


Simply Iconic Stamps

Lisa Bearnson’s Inspired Inc. stamp kits are AWESOME! And I love working with them. Not only are they a FANTASTIC value (FIVE 4×6 stamp sets, inks AND an acrylic block in a sturdy box), but they are great quality! They stamp beautifully every single time. Here are a few pages that I created using the Simply Iconic Stamp Kit still available in the Inspired Inc. shop at HSN.com HERE. You can see up close images of each stamp sheet and download coordinating cut files for the stamps HERE on Lisa Bearnson’s blog.


Here are a couple of the layouts I created with this kit.


For this Valentine page I used the stamps to create several accents on the page. I used the paperclip and “Air Mail” pennant on the top left photo, and then added a stamped postage stamp and pushpin to the photo on the right.


The chevron borders, typewriter and heart are also created using the stamp kit. And see that adorable cursive word “LOVE?” It looks like a die cut, but it is actually an epoxy sticker of Lisa Bearnson’s handwriting from the Write On Handwriting Sticker Kit (pictured below).



On this page I used the paper airplane stamp across the title sticker at the top of the page. The camera, date pennant, and “Expand Your View” images were also created with this darling stamp set!


The two layered pennants (yellow quatrefoil and blue quote) are from Lisa’s The Write Tablet Set of 6 Journal Pads (another awesome set of products … PERFECT for pocket scrapping!).


Thanks for taking a look at my work! I hope you are having a great week!


Hometown Parade

Hi Friends! How was your weekend? We didn’t make it to the mountains for a fall drive, but we had a few lovely rainstorms passed through that filled the air with that delicious Fall smell. Mmmmm! I wish you could bottle that smell! It is my favorite!

This week, I thought I would share with you a few of the projects that I have been creating for the Paper Crafting with Lisa Bearnson show on HSN. Lisa has more shows coming up next week on the 17th and there are so many darling products! You can see a few sneaks of those on Lisa’s Blog Here and Here and Here and Here … but first, I thought I would revisit some of her products that are currently available in the Inspired Inc. store at HSN.com now.


On this page I featured the Simply Stated Stamp Kit (AWESOME stamps and AWESOME value!) and the Across the Board Border Kit (so many colors and patterns!).



I used the red and the blue ink pads from the kit along with another ink pad from my stash to create the stamped banner across the top of the page. These little inks are JUICY! And I love that the red ink is a true red … not orange-y, blech-red.



The border strips that I used are the red strips across the top and bottom of this layered section (I handcut along the decorative flourish edge for more detail on the bottom one), the polka dot strip, and the hexagon strip. The other red (banner) and blue (woodgrain) strips are just patterned paper strips from my scrap bin.


I also created the date tag using the stamps from the kit. If you love glitter paper … THIS SET is a nice heavy text weight and cuts like a DREAM with punches or a die cutting machine without gunking up your blade (or punch).


I’ll be back with more shares tomorrow! Thanks for coming by!
