Barkley in a basket

Good afternoon everyone. Today I am lucky enough to be working with the fabulous Barkley cdrom by Crafters Companion, which is available here from Julie at jb-crafting supplies. As an animal lover, I have so enjoyed working with cd and the images are great ones to share. On this cd there are a number of larger toppers and this is one of them. I just love this image of Barley waiting in his basket. This is a 8x8 card, so you can judge how large this is. I love working with 8x8 cards..but there are many images on this cd which work with the smaller card ranges as well.
All I have done with this card is to mount the picture onto some red card and edge it with a glittered peeloff. The only other embellishments I have added is some diecut ornaments and some jeweled stars. Even though it is a larger card, it is also a very quick card to make.
Sometimes with a lovely image, you need only add a few embellishments. Jewels, ribbons and diecuts always feature on my cards and form a large part of my stash. If you have the chance pop along and see all the goodies that Julie has in stock.
Well I hope that the weather is being kind to wherever you are take care and happy crafting

Barkley cdrom from Crafters Companion

Good afternoon everyone..Genny here. Today I'm featuring the fabulous 'Barkley' cdrom from Crafters Companion which is available from julie here at jb-crafting supplies. I have so enjoyed working with this cd. I have made these cards using the card companion section of the cd. This is a really handy section if you need to make quick cards. Everything that you need to make a card is on one sheet..the matting,the main image as well as messages and decorations. The only thing that I have added is some peeloffs.I love them. And they are really good for posting as they are flat and use a smaller card. I have made these using a 6x6 card. With the postage costs today alot of my friends want to be able to post majority of their cards using a normal first these fit the bill really well. I would like to add that there are also some wonderful large images on this cd...which I will be featuring in later posts. Being a lover of dogs and cats, I love the images on this cd. I hope you do too. Until my next post..take care and happy crafting...Genny

CAS card using Pastel Pencils

Good morning crafters! I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend? Well today I decided to try two completely new things for me...little bit scary..but FUN! I am using my new Stampendous Stamps "Angel Trumpet" available now from JB- Crafting Supplies
so...the two new things?? To Create a CAS card, coloured in using ONLY my Faber Castel Pastel pencils...( That i have never used before!!) eeek! well...sometimes its good to step outside of your comfort zone and try new things!!
This stamp is quite simply... beautiful..and so I thought perfect for a CAS- Clean and simple card!, I would normally have coloured in using my promarkers but wanted to try something new and different! I may need some more practice with my pencils BUT I have to say I really enjoyed using them! and we ALL have to start learing somewhere when trying a new meduium!
I hope you like this stamp! Next week i will colour her with my promarkers and use the ohers stamps that come with the set!
Happy crafting

Barkley Cdrom from Crafters Companion

Good afternoon everyone..Genny here. Todays project is from the fabulous Barkley cdrom by Crafters Companion from Julie at JB-Crafting Supplies. As most of you will know by now I adore both cats and this is the perfect cd for me. There are fabulous festive designs. This cd is so packed with wonderful images it's so hard to know where to start. My poor printer should have smoke coming out of it with the amount of work it's done lately.
I decided to start with a project rather than a card this week. I wanted to make something that could live with my Christmas decorations and come out every year. When my son was little, one of the things that he loved to do was put out the 'Santa Sign' every year. He would put it out at the beginning of December and would look at it every day. It all added up to even more christmas excitement.
To make this sign I began with a piece of thick card, which I covered with a backing paper from the design set. I printed and cut out 'santa stop here' from the alphabet section I cut out Barkley in his basket and his cat friend from a topper sheet. I used some christmas greenery die cuts and a christmas tree die cut from my stash. I edged all the letters with black faux stitching. I added a 'please' with peeloff letters as we all know Santa does like good manners..well that's what I told my son! I assembled everything and then just added decorations using jewels and peeloffs from my stash.
It was a really fun and festive project and I hope you will give it a go. I hope you all like it. Next time I will be making some christmas cards with the truly wonderful 'Barkley'...until then..take care and happy crafting..Genny

Heart "Felt" Wishes from Sheena Douglas

Good morning crafters!, today see's a new post with some exciting new products!
This month I will be working with some new stamps available now from JB-Crafting Supplies the first stamp set is a collection by Sheena Douglas's A Little Bit Festive range, called "Heart Felt Wishes"
These stamps are really lovely! and so easy to work with!, I have so many designs rolling around in my head! but first off I decided to create a simple card using the 3 main images from the set,
I created a card showing the 3 designs hanging from a christmas tree, and used a a Christmas Pine Die to cut some lovely green pine needles, arranged them to the left of my card placing some flat and a few on 3D foam pads then arranged my images!, The stamps are simple and quick to colour in, and are perfect for not only accomplished colourists but perfect for beginners and children too!
A little dash of satin green ribbon and the cutest of sentiments that comes with the set! and voila, one quick Christmas card that is sure to stand out on your mantle piece this christmas time!
Next Saturday I will create something using my next stamp set so untill next time....
happy Crafting

Father Christmas cdrom

Hello everyone..Genny here. Today I'm sharing two more cards made with the fabulous 'Father Christmas cdrom from Crafters Companion. I have really enjoyed using this cd and keep having more ideas.
The first card I'm going to talk about is the one with the face of Father Christmas. I thought it would be nice just to show a really easy quick card. There are always times when we have a lot of cards to make but don't always have the time to spend. This image is from the topper section and the backing paper is from the design sets. All that I have added is some red card and some peeloffs. I have to say that there are some really fabulous backing papers on this cd. So please have a good look..I have found lots of papers that I can use on many christmas projects. It's always good to have a cd in your library that you know you can go to when you need a christmas paper.
The other card is using the alphabet section of the cd. I just printed out the word snow and mounted the letters onto a piece of blue card. I used the same blue card as my backing card and added a piece of white embossed paper. I used a snowflake embossing folder from my stash but any design with snowflakes on would be just as nice. On top of the embossing I added some diecut snowflakes and then fianlly added the strip with the word on. Of course the card needed glitter ( I really do love the stuff!), so I just spot glittered the letters. You can;t see in the photo but the whole card seems to twinkle.
Well I hope that you like the cards and will really consider adding this cd to your library. If you get the chance pop along and have a look at the fabulous range that Julie has in stock at JB-Crafting Supplies. Until the next time..take care and happy crafting..Genny
