Not quite sneak peeks!!

Good evening all!! Well by now I'm sure most of you will of seen the pick of the week and all of the AMAZING sneak peeks that the rest of the teamies have been sharing with you. Crafter's Comapnion have brought out a new range today from Rachelle Anne Miller. The lovely Dawn Wheeler launched the new range today on Create and Craft and it's been flying!!

Here are a couple of samples that I made for the shows....apologies for the delay in sharing I have been busy ripping out my kitchen ready for a new one :0)

The first card is using the CD 1 and using one of the toppers with the alphabet and also a sentiment featured on the Cd rom.
The quality of the images is amazing as you would expect from the Crafter's Companion cd's, I printed the topper sheet onto neenah card, along with the letters from the alphabet section from the cd which is great for personalising your cards. I added some distressed kraft card which i embossed using the new Embossalicious Gothic Script embossing folder. I also rolled up some of the kraft card to look like a map as an extra embellishment.

The next card is using the Giraffe is soooo cute and definitely one of my faves!!
 The image is stamped onto neenah card and coloured using both my Spectrum Noir pens and pencils. I used some paper from the CD rom 2 and also the flowers which are in the embellishment section of the cd.
I will be back tomorrow to share some more pictures of the samples that I made, don't forget to catch Dawn on Create and Craft to see her shows and fab demos.

Bye for now
