My name is Lynda Phillips and I have been on the Crystal Art design team for over two years now. I have been a crafter for over 10 years and have been doing Crystal Art for 5 years. My journey with Crystal Art started with a set of cards that I bought from Craft Buddy about 5 years ago. I just loved the sparkle and quality of the crystals they used. I made this card with the very Crystal Art card I first bought.
I then tried a Crystal Art canvas and I was hooked. I was so impressed with the first canvas I did that I have never looked back. It gives the most gorgeous sparkle, and the level of detail is exquisite. I was so impressed with the picture quality and loved the process of putting the crystals on the canvas which helped me become relaxed and took all the stress and strains of my day away.
It is a mindful craft that anyone can do. I like to start at the bottom of the canvas and work my way up. I do a small area at a time, but it is very addictive and find that I want to do just a little bit more and before you know it, time has whizzed by.
This is the canvas that I love so much. This is the first of many more Crystal Art canvas I have done.
I also love the Crystal Art cards, key rings, notebooks, clocks and the stickers sets.
They all have fantastic sparkle and are of the upmost quality. I find with the notebooks and the key rings, because they are handled a lot, I seal them using the Crystal Art Sealer for protection.
This ensures that all my crystals remain secure and don’t fall off. I always apply the sealer with a brush and stipple method over the crystals. I then wipe the excess off with a damp and lint free cloth or baby wipe, to make sure the crystals don’t lose any of their beautiful sparkle. I don’t generally seal my canvases unless they are going to be put in a room that has a lot of moisture in the atmosphere.
As I have so many extra crystals left over from my numerous kits, I have started using the Crystal Art stamps and have almost every stamp set that has been released to date – yep I love them that much 😊.
I really enjoy using these stamps and being able to design my own cards. Craft Buddy and Crystal Art have some amazing products that are brilliant quality and which I love using in many ways. They are easy to use and give fantastic, finished results.
Here is a picture of a couple of those cards using the crystal art stamps.
