Exciting News - The Reveal


At last I am able to tell you what I have been working on for the last 3 months, it's a fantastic new Stamp and CD release from Crafters Companion of a fabulous character POPCORN THE BEAR. The CD and Stamps will be launched on Ideal World and Create and Craft at 9pm on Wednesday 24th.

I Have been lucky enough to have been asked to contribute to this collection from the conception to the end, and help choose the Images Backing Paper and write some of the sentiments.



But more exciting than all of that Sara asked me to Colour all the Packaging for the stamps and to make sample cards for the accompanying leaflet, wow I couldn't believe she thought my colouring good enough. Above is the covers for the 4 sets of Mens Popcorn Stamps that I coloured, there is also a Floral and Birthday set but you will have to wait until 24th to see them or you can visit Crafters Companion website to get an sneak peek. As you can imagine most of my time has been taken up with this project and I have found it so hard to keep up with all my blogging and commenting, I am so sorry if I have not visited you as much as I should and thank you all for staying with me whilst I have been such a bad blogger, after Wednesday I should be back to normal unless Sara has anything more in the pipeline for me.

Below are three cards I made with the stamp sets.



So Don't forget if you would like to see more stamps and sample cards from myself and the rest of the talented CD the show is on IW or CC at 9pm 24th July, and if you cannot wait click Here to visit Crafters Companion Website.





This is the Triple CD to go with the Stamps, it includes Backing Papers Images Decoupage etc the usual things that are on Crafters Companion CD, I am so in love with this new Release I think it is the best Crafters Companion have every released.
