When is an Easel not an Easel ???

A new little character enters the crafting world today, her name is Angelica and she has lots of fairy friends. Sara Davies will be launching a 4 Day Deal on Create and Craft and to celebrate Crafters Companion are holding a Blog Hop with a prize of ALL NINE stamp sets in the release.
All you have to do is leave a comment as you hop around then ONE random commenter on ONE UK team member's blog will win. (it's a prize worth over £35)
You have until Wednesday 6th Feb to leave a comment, winners will be announced on the CC UK blog Thursday 7th February; 

There is a CD as well as the stamps and 2 card kits. A Luxury Card Kit and an Easel Card Kit.
They are very easy to assemble and make a lovely quick card.
I thought I would see what else I could create instead of an easel card, so in answer to the question "When is an Easel not an Easel ?"
The answer could be......
or when it's a DL card

or it could be a foldback apeture card.

but then again with a bit of extra card they make lovely wrap around tent cards.

Sandwich two together for a totally different look

Then again with a bit more time and some bits from your crafty stash you could create an apeture window with shutters.
Below are all the Design Team members who are taking part in the Blog Hop here and in the USA, if you started at the beginning Christiana Reuling is next.
So leave a comment as you go.Good Luck and enjoy the shows.

Angelica and Friends

Today I would like to share with you some cards I have made for the upcoming 4 Day Deal on Create and Craft.

Tomorrow Sara Davies will be launching a new range for Crafters Companion called Angelica and Friends.

 There are Stamps, a CD and two card kits, produced in conjunction with Hunkydory.
There is also foiled acetate and vellum to compliment the kits.

I have used the Luxury Card Kit to create these cards. I hope you like them.
This card was made from an A4 sheet which I cut into, I added a bit of coordinations for some mats.

There are several sheets of toppers some set into their own frames with decorative corners.Borders are also incorporated into the sheets.
The acetate and vellums have gorgeous foiling in several designs.
The acetate was strong enough to make this card.

Images appear on several of the sheets of cards and depending on which way you fold them form a lovely feature. The circular topper was mounted onto 2 Die'sire dies which were cut from some of the card and laced together with ribbon.

I think you will love this kit it is so pretty and is very versatile.

Tomorrow I will be part of a blog hop and will be sharing some different ways to use the Easel Kit, so hope you pop by. You could win all the stamps.

See you tomorrow.
