National Craft Month Celebration Blog Hop


Happy National Craft Month!!  Isn’t this amazing that we have a whole month dedicated to what we love to do, which is creating beautiful things!!

I’ve been super busy this month crafting like crazy.  I’ve never been so busy in all of my years of crafting.  I have to admit, I love it!!  I’m highly stressed but my best work comes to me in times like this.

Right at Home has decided that we would celebrate this amazing month with an amazing blog hop!!

The design team was challenged to create a project using our favorite products and share that with all of you!!

I thought this was a fabulous idea.  The only thing is, how do I pick what my favorite product out of all of the goodies I own.  LOL!!

Take a look at my card and see if you can guess what my favorite things are:

Blessed (RAH)

Can you see what I see?  Oh baby, I’m in love!!

Lets take a closer look:

Blessed close up (RAH)

Can you see all of that foiled goodness now?  OMG, I love it!!  So now you know one of my favorite products, Thermoweb Deco Foil, any color. The other is Right At Home Scripted Greetings Stamp Set.  My signature style is Clean and Simple.

This card looks amazing in person.  You can move it back an forth and see all of the different colors.

I’m also a lover of sequin .  I didn’t add them to this card because it would over do it and take away from the beautiful foil.

So you want to know how I create this card:

I cut Heidi Swapp Minc Signature Paper to 4.5 by 5.50.

Then I cut Themoweb Deco Foil Rainbow to fit on the front of the water card panel.

I ran it thought my laminator to transfer the foil on to the paper.  Since the stars contain toner, the foil stuck to the stars.

After that I  stamped the sentiment using the Mini Misti and Versafine Black Onyx ink.  I stamped twice so that the sentiment would stand out from the stars.

I sprinkled Stampin’ Up! Clear Embossing powder over the sentiment, since the ink takes a while to dry, adding the embossing powder will give the sentiment an extra kick.

That’s my card!!  What do you think?  What is your favorite product? Please let me know below. 

Now for the hop!!  You have to hop along leaving a comment on each of the blogs participating in order to win a prize.   More details on the prize, had back to Right At Home Blog.

Next up is fabulous Yuki!! Her projects are always amazing.  I can’t wait to see what she created!!

Once again, Happy National Craft Month!!

  1. Kymona, your shimmery foiled stars are STUNNING! Your enthusiasm for what you’ve created is infectious; I, too, love your card! Thank you for the smile today!

  2. What a beautiful card! I have to admit I haven’t tried using thermo foil yet, because I am afraid I will love it want need to spend even more on supplies and a laminator. . . Lol! I love the look you got using it, that sparkle is so pretty!

  3. What a beautiful card! I have to admit I haven’t tried using thermo foil yet, mainly because I am afraid I will love it and need to buy more supplies and a laminator . . . Lol! The shine and sparkle you got is lovely and really tempts me though.

  4. I absolutely love the simplicity and cleanliness of this card. I’ve never seen such a lovely use of foil and although I’ve never learned how to use it or seen it used, this card has convinced me that I want to get the equipment required to create such a great look!

  5. GORGEOUS – LOVE the rainbow of shiny foils – WOW- the shimmer & shiny of the stars is BEAUTIFUL!!! I can see the lucky recipient holding it in their hands and gently moving it to catch the light in the stars!!!
    Foiling is on my “to-try” list => THANK YOU for the INSPIRATION 🙂
    PS – My current favourite product is Mini Distress Inks and I am addicted to the “Distress Ink Lifting” technique with them.
