We’re thrilled to announce a new supplier – Epiphany Crafts. They’ve devised a very cool new range of tools and accessories that allow you to create custom-made buttons and epoxy shapes for your craft projects. The punches come in a range of shapes and sizes from circles ovals and squares to flowers and hearts, and can give your projects that professional looking finishing touch it needs in minutes.
We sent some samples out to our design team and they loved them! They went to town creating inspiring pieces to showcase this versatile little tool. Enjoy.
Iris used the gorgeous little heart button maker punch and accessories to create this sweet page. The beauty of the Epiphany tools is that you can customise your embellishments to match your page perfectly and the punch quickly and easily creates the perfect shape to back the transparent button with – it even punches out the button holes!
When Kathie saw the Epiphany heart shape tool, she was inspired to create a wall canvas featuring a heart motif. After painting, misting and inking a canvas background, she cut a series of hearts from coordinating Prima Botanical papers and adhered these onto the backdrop. She applied a soft acrylic wash to these then outlined them with charcoal and black pen.
Each heart has been decorated with clusters comprising fancy metal book plates, calico strips, flowers, dimensional butterflies, brads and manufactured circle pebbles. Using old text and music papers Kathie created sweet heart pebbles with the Epiphany tool and scattered them onto the canvas. The small shiny little pebbles give the canvas a beautiful finishing touch. A hand drawn and painted title finishes the project.
Louise thought she would test the capabilities of the small punch on some Hambly overlays, and she was very impressed, as in her experience a lot of smaller punches struggle with the thickness of the overlays. Too coordinate with the epoxy cover of these embellishments and buttons, Louise choose to coordinate it with the Hambly overlays to create this and the next layout, as they compliment each other perfectly.
For this particular layout Louise thought she would do something a little different and actually used the epoxy hearts as part of her sub title; love love love'Able.
Once again Louise has used the Hambly overlay with the button shape maker and it was perfect, even cutting the inner holes without a hitch. To create a dramatic and interesting contrast to highlight both the Epiphany epoxy embellishments and the Hambly overlay, Louise has used black cardstock backgrounds, for both the layouts.
Suz loves to keep some (not all – there are a lot of them!) of the sweet notes her daughter writes for her. She created this page to showcase one of them – shocking spelling and all! – using the beautiufl Pink Paislee Sweetness patterned papers.
Suz loved the idea of the little punch and pebble maker, and wanted to see if it went through textures other than paper and cardstock. She tried it out on the Websters Fabric Ribbon and it worked a treat. So with her pebbles she not only has the finished look of the page pebble, but she also has the slightly magnified texture of the fabric coming through it.
