Wow! Times Gone By

Woo Hoo! there is a new Pick of the Week on Create and Craft this Friday from Crafters Companion called 'Times Gone By', there are two amazingly stunning CD's and four equally amazing stamp sheets with a beautiful vintage theme.  The Times gone by in the title also refers to my absence from blogging - sorry all.

Anyhow, you'll be wanting to see some of the stunning things you can do with this fabulous new range and there is already a gallery set up over at crafters companion here but for the here and now, here's one of the cards I've made for the launch.

This uses one of the complete companions from CD2, the base card I printed directly onto Neenah Classic Crest and cut out, this gives a beautifully professional base on which to start your card, I used some cream card and Neenah Desert storm for the matting and layering, Lace border 8 for the border and the stamp comes from one of the stamp sheets - as you can see, you can create an amazing card quite quickly.  The most fascinating thing about this card is that first mat you can see is actually a faux mat and is part of the base card printed out - brilliant! so you can keep your cards relatively flat for posting and still have them look outstanding.

Anyway, I have to go to work and earn some money so that I can buy more craft stuff!  see you all soon.
