Crafter's Companion Design Team Card - Crafter's Inspiration Magazine Issue 10

Heeeellllloooo everyone

I'm here today to share my Crafter's Companion project with you using goodies from the 
Crafter's Inspiration Magazine Kit Issue #10. To be perfectly honest before joining the Design Team I'd never used one of the kits before...and wow, I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the box.  Inside you received an inspiration magazine, a set of dies, embossing folder, stamps plus a tutorial DVD and CD with lots papers and digi stamps. It's such great value for money!

So to give you a little inspiration here's what I created with my kit. By the way, just a little heads up, I'll be back in a day or so with more inspiration. ;)

Underneath the photos I have written a short description of how I made my card plus a list of all the products I used. Enjoy!

 Here's What I Did
First I matted my 5" x 5" scalloped white card blank with yellow card stock. Next I cut out a square of strong white card and die cut 5 hexagon shapes into it, then stamped a sentiment in black ink in the bottom right corner. Using a few coloured inks I added lots of splashes and splodges on the white card around the cut outs.

Using the hexagon waste pieces I created frames by die cutting into them again with the smaller size dies, these were then glued in place over the apertures. Using the CD from the kit a sheet of patterned paper was printed out, cut down to size then glued on top of the yellow card.

The bee and flower were hand stamped and coloured with Spectrum Noir pens, then fussy out.  Spectrum Noir 'Sparkle' pens were added to both images and then glued in place on the patterned paper. Lots of foam pads were added to the back of the white topper to give it strength, and attached to the card base over the top of the patterned paper and card.

To finish off I added gold sequins and black dashes into each of the apertures, then to give extra sparkle I added droplets of the clear glitter pen around the splodges and splashes..
