Diesire to be enlightened?

Oooh hi all. Some of you may already be aware but the wonderful Crafter’s Companion are releasing some brilliant Dies of their own on the 19th August on Create and Craft. There’s some fab designs. I have had the privilege to be working with the following two sets of dies.


There just fab and I’m sure you will like all of the other sets too.

I have made various different samples using the wonderful licenced ranges from Crafter’s Companion. The first sample I am going to be showing you is made using the Moreheads CD.

This sample is a decorative Candle.


I just love this sweet image from the cd. I have printed onto tissue paper and applied to the candle using the greaseproof paper and heat gun method.

Next I have used some core’dinations card stock and the border die and ran these through my Grand Calibur. I have used the off cut as a border along the top and then the main decorative piece along the bottom, edged with some ribbon.

I created a base for the candle using a circle which I have cut on my ecraft and then the scalloped die which I then distressed using the Sand it tool.

Finally I added stickles glitter and flowers to the candle for decoration.

I will pop back over the next couple of weeks with more of my samples.

For now that’s all. Why not check out some of the other DT’s blogs for more of there wonderful samples!!!

Happy Crafting
