New Collection & CCT Challenge

Hi everybody,


I'm sorry I haven't been around very much recently, my blog and blogging buddies really have been neglected but there is a good reason....

I've been working away at the new download collection! It went on sale today and I'm so excited about it. The great thing about downloads is that although they might be flying off the shelves the shelves remain full! and you don't have to wait for the postie to get your hands on them!

The collection is called Holly& Madison and here is an example of what you'll be able to do with them....


The inspiration for this card came from a card my Friend Maddy made so I can't take all the credit, you must visit her blog -it's amazing!

This week's theme over at Cute Card Thursday is metal. Well I bought these metal hinges from Poppicrafts a while back and I've been meaning to use them so this challenge was the perfect excuse. They give quite a funky tough don't they.

I'm in love with the textured papers I've used for the layers, they're from the Amy Butler Lotus Mat Pad which I bought from Charmed Cards and Crafts. If you look carefully you'll see that I used some of the paper to paper piece Holly's dungarees and hat. I love paper piecing and it's so easy with the downloads, just print your main image onto white card then print again onto your patterned paper, cut out the bits you want and stick them on! Voila!


The colouring is done with my Prisma markers, I got them ages ago and haven't really used them much yet but I'm really happy with the results. My dilemma now is do I get more colours of these of do I buy some Copics? hmmmm

If you would like to view the whole set of downloads just pop over to Charmed Cards and Crafts, you can put them in your basket with any other shopping you need to do while you're there and the download link comes up in your email receipt so you could be playing with them in ten minutes time!
