One More Sleep........

Hi everyone, 

I'm back with a final sneaky peek of the Scruffy Little Cat range due to be launched by Crafter's Companion tomorrow on Create and Craft at 12pm as a Pick of the Week. 

I wanted to share the following project, as I think it shows off one of the new 5 x 7 embossing folders entitled "Chic", which I used to create the pattern effect on the handbag. 

The stamp I used is called Autumn and I coloured her in with my Spectrum Noir pens. I think that this range is perfect for using alternative colours especially for their hair :-).

You can see the effect of the Chic embossing folder, which is an absolute classic and extremely versatile. 

The ingredients used for the card were:
Spectrum Noir Pens
Face FS 1 – 5 & 8
Eyes BT2
Lips DR5 & 6
Hair PP2, 4 & 5 and DR1, 6 and 7
Bags PP2, 4 & 5 and BT1 & 2
Coat/Boots – BG1 – 6
Trousers/Bag – IG2 – 6
Outline – IG1
Autumn Stamp and Sentiment
Nenah Card

Another sneaky peek

Hi all! 

Just wanted to share another of my sneak peeks for the Scruffy Little Cat range, which Crafter's Companion are due to launch on Create and Craft as a pick of the week on Friday at 12pm.

I'm so excited about this range, because as well as a jam packed CD the images are available as stamps for you to colour until your hearts content. I used my Spectrum Noir Pens to colour the image and the paper is from one of the 6 x 6 paper pads available to buy. There are also two new embossing folders, which are gorgeous!!! The image used in the card below is called "Chanel".

I particularly love the range, as it cries out for lots of sparkle and bling to be added. On this card I used a template on the CD to make the glittery bow from felt and I just thought she was perfect for a few feathers!

Face – TN1 – 4 and FS4 and CR4
Hair GB1, 4, 6 and 8 and TN 6
Lips – CR 2 and 4

Sneaky Peek Time - Scruffy Little Cat

Hey everyone! 

Hope you've all been well! I'm really excited to be able to share with you a new range that Crafter's Companion are bringing to you next Friday 9 May at 12pm on Create and Craft as a Pick of the Week! The subject matter is Scruffy Little Cat and here's a card I made using the stamp called "Ashleigh".

I made a Criss Cross Card and coloured the image in with my Spectrum Noir Pens. These stamps are perfect for colouring as they have lots of scope to colour hair, skin and clothes. The range particularly appeals to me, as you can go glitter and sparkle crazy, which you can find plenty of here!

Sharon Cansfield the artist has said:
"Don’t be daunted- YOU can do this & you CAN create something unique. There are no rules, no right or wrong. Give yourself plenty of time as crafting is addictive & just have fun, and if in doubt ADD GLITTER!"
There is a full interview with the artist, which can be found here.

The papers I have used on the above card are from the Darks Paper Pad. For your information the collection includes:
- Two 6x6" paper pads
- Two 5x7" embossing folders
- One die-cut topper sheet
- Eight 4" acrylic stamps
- One papercrafting CD-ROM
- Six A6 rubber stamp sets (plus two exclusive Ideal World ones - AMY & HOLLY)
