Introducing i-crafter - New Company, New Release - January 2020




Hello my crafty friend!   Oooh I cannot believe the day is here!  The launch of a new company that is based on years of experience in the craft industry.  You will love these new line of dies and stamps. Let’s make interactive cards easy and interchangeable,  let’s mix and match dies to make cards, projects, and scrapbook pages, let’s have fun creating!  ...Ohh and let’s have a GIVEAWAY!

It is my pleasure to introduce you to i-crafter!


What we believe: 

We believe that CREATIVITY lives in all of us

That creativity is the IMAGINATION made visible

That LEARNING new things can and should be fun

That creativity flourishes when we take time to EXPERIMENT and make mistakes

That MAKING things with our hands is good for the soul

That CURIOSITY makes life infinitely more interesting

I-crafter is built from the ground up with YOU, the crafter, in mind by people who truly like working with each othe.

Join us at the beginning of each month for the launch of new products and an inspiring blog hop by our talented Inspiration Team.  We will share new ideas and inspire you through tutorials, videos, and with lots of ideas. Visit often as the Inspiration Team will be bringing you new content nearly all month long giving you something creative to see and fun learn.



...and with that, we’re off

Let’s make something together

A-MAZE-ing!  Right?  My first project features the Amaze Me stamp set at the Heart Maze die 
A - I die cut eight of the Heart Maze pieces from pink and white cardstock.  I glued 7 of them together in a stack.  I die cut the solid heart from a piece of pink cardstock and from a piece of clear acetate.  I glued the stacked Heart Maze to the pink cardstock heart
B - I added pink shaker elements to the middle heart and made a small barrier from clear acetate to enclose them in the heart.  I adhered the clear acetate heart on top of the Heart Maze sealing the shaker.  I glued the last heart maze piece to the top of the maze
C - I tied a piece of ribbon into a bow around a piece of 5 1/4” x 4” black sparkle cardstock. I attached this to a piece to a 5 3/8” x 4 1/8” metallic red cardstock.  I glued the cardfront to an A2 white cardbase and glued on the Heart Maze shaker to the left of the cardfront
D- I stamped the “You AMAZE Me” sentiment on a piece os metallic red cardstock with clear pigment.  I embossed it withe Alabaster white and heat set it.  I cut the semtiment and layered it on pink and white cardstock ...and the card is done


The Lost Without You card is simple to make.  I love the characters you can make with the fun whimsy Making Faces die set.  There are so many possibilities as you can see with the glasses and goté. I paired it up with the Amaze Me stamp set


A- I stamped out the maze stamp in pretty pansy ink randomly on a  piece of 5 1/4” x 4”  purple cardstock
B - I cut a piece of vellum to 5 3/8” x 4 1/8”  i stamped out the Maze stamp and the ”Lost Without You sentiment on to light purple cardstock. I added a red heart to the middle of the maze.  I also created one of the many faces from the Making Faces die set. Aren’t the glasses so darn cute?
C - I placed a piece of double sided tape in the middle of the vellum a attached it to the card front centering it.
D - I attached the vellum to the middle of the stamped maze cardfront

A, B - I added foam squares to the back of the purple stamped maze piece and attached it to the card front at a slight angle
C - I attached the fun face i created
D - I used a small dot of glue in each corner behind the vellum to secure the corners down an added silver brad to cover glue dots and add interest completing this card


My next project is the adorable gift card tag. Yes, it hold a gift card and has a pull tab you can add!  This Zip Gift Tag die set will be such fun to create with!



A - I cut the tag from blue cardstock twice.  One with the Star and Congrats die added for the front of the tag and the second with the Zip die added for the back of the tag. I die cut the star die twice more fro metallic red and white glitter cardstock.  I glued white glitterstock behind the opening on the tag front and glued the small metalic red star in the middle of the blue star
B - I cut open the large white glitter stars to link it to the metallic red star and glued it on front. I added the remaining solid white glitter star to the front of the tag
C - I created another fun face from the making faces die set and added it to the front of the tag.  I think this red headed boy with his hip glasses is adorable

To finish the tag I added foam tape leaving enough space in between to add the gift card and sealed it in  between the tag front and back.  I added ribbon to finish the tag

I also created a full on glitter Zip Tag!  What I love about this dies set is you will find several inserts for  all sorts of occasions giving you many options to create the perfect gift card Zip Tag

Thanks you so much for stopping by today and being a part if the new i-crafter launch.  I hope you enjoyed learning more about i-crafter and the new fun creative dies and stamps. Let me know if you have any question!
