I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 20. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 25 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Popcorn Pals Sneak Peek - Release Day

A bumper sneak peek today to celebrate RELEASE DAY - woooohooooo! You can now order these beauties from CRAFTERS COMPANION WEBSITE. You can get your hands on the whole crew - Popcorn the Bear, Souffle the Duck, Biscuit the Dog, Candy Floss the Raggy Doll, Barley the Mouse, Pickles the Hedgehog and Fydge the Cat.

The first two cards are made using the remaining two stamp plates. The Candy Floss Raggy Doll, butterfliesand sentiment are from one set (along with others I have not used). The butterfly paper is scrummy - perfect match to the TH Distress ink Weathered wood which I have used around the edges of the papers, image and sentiment. The sentiment plate is cut on cuttlebug using oval and scallop oval nesties with Martha Stewart border punch on the mat. I cut a corner of card and put through rippler for added texture. Small blue gems to finish.

This card is made using the last of the four stamp plates. I thought I would try and see what Candy Floss Raggy Doll looks like as a blond and love the result. Again great value on the stamp plate with the Candy Floss, Pickles the Hedgehog, Barley the Mouse, Souffle the Duck and circle sentiment all from the plate (along with others) - how fab is that!. Image coloured with promarkers with blue bling card for mats to add sparkle.

These next two cards are made using one of the topper sheets. I used three different Design papers on this Pickles the Hedgehog with Barley the Mouse card and cut the topper out on cuttlebug using lables nestie. I used a sentiment from one of the stamp plates and gems to finish.

And for my last card it's another easel card made using the design paper that matches the topper. I love this one as it shows almost all the charachters - Popcorn, Candy Floss Raggy Doll, Fudge the Cat, Pickles the Hedgehog, Souffle the Duck and the ickle Barley Mouse :) Sentiment from one of the stamp plates with punched flowers and brads and spacers to decorate the bottom layer.

Now my next projects are to show that these CD's are not only for making cards. I had some inkjet transfer paper so I thought I would see how they turned out.

The first three are little baby vests which I have decorated with different toppers. It's hard to tell on the pics but the transfers are so shiny :) The first one I cut following the printed heart shape but the other two are "shaped" in my photo program to make an oval and an octagon.



When I bought the baby vests I noticed a bargain of two adult vest tops for £3 so I thought I would have a go for me and my daughter too :) Love them and can see myself making more of these!


I hope you have enjoyed my sneak peeks over the last few days. I have adored working with these CD's and stamps. 17 samples overall and I have sooooooooooooooo many more ideas too :)

If you order (which I'm sure you will be) I know you won't be disappointed when you receive them and you'll love working with them as much as I did.
