A little something for your delectation!!


Crafters Companion Beatrix Potter Release

Hope you have some Biccies and a cup of tea on hand cos this is a long one. I have been getting so twitchy not being able to upload photos to my PC when I have lots of cards sitting here ready to post, and I am also feeling very glum that I couldn't join in the Wags'n Whiskers Blog Hop today (hopefully should be able to join in later as soon as my Camera and USB cable arrive). All that has changed after I had an e-mail from dear Sara at Crafters Companion telling us we can show some sneak peeks of next weeks VERY VERY special release!!!!!!! that will be Pick of the Day on Ideal World next Tuesday at 9pm, and as these had already been uploaded for a few weeks I could at last post!!!!!!



I did mention a little time ago that I was working on some very exciting new projects and this is the first of them, as you have no doubt guessed by the above photos the Stunning creations by Beatrix Potter are the theme of these new CD's and Stamp Sets. If this has got your Crafting Juices going there is lots more information Here, along with extra bonus items to download (including the most beautiful screen saver) and competitions with some great prizes, so if you are a member of Crafters Companion click the link and join in, if you are not already a member don't let that put you off just click the link and join, its well worth it, with loyalty points, great offers and an amazing array of crafting goodies to browse and it doesn't cost you a penny to join. Don't forget to set a reminder for the release show on Ideal World 9pm, next Tuesday 16th February.

Now down to the cards, this card is from one of 3 stamp sheets (Mrs Tiggy-Winkle) she has been coloured with Distress Inks and the beautiful background papers are from the Beatrix Potter 4 Disc CD set. I have used Oval Nesties to cut out the image, and Martha Stewart Border punch and Lattice Heart punch, with lots if Liquid Pearls, Crafters Companion stock a good range of Martha Stewart Punches and more are arriving all the time.

The next card (a double side step) has been created using a stamps from The Peter Rabbit Stamp Sheet, including the sentiments


I have coloured these with copics, and again the papers are from the new CD's.

I have used rectangle Plain and scalloped Nesties then cut out and 3d the images on top.

The label is another set from Spellbinders.

Last sneak peek is from the Tom Kitten Stamp Set, what a wonderful Mothers Day card this stamp would make

Again coloured with Copics, and backing papers from the CD's, I have used another Martha Stewart Border here, also Corner Punch and Large Medium and Small Flower Retro Punch to make the flowers which have been edged with Distress Ink.

Well hope you think this long post has been worth it, and I hope you are as excited as I am about this wonderful new Crafters Companion Release

Thanks for looking
Hugs
Jacqui xx
