The new collection from Dawn Wheeler, launched today on Create&CraftTV Vintage furniture, a beautiful collection consisting of a paper pack with toppers, background papers and inserts. Also available are coordinating dies, stencils and stamps.

My main focus for this sample was to use the candelabra stencil using a lustre stencil paste, I then also used the coordinating stamp, two of the border dies and some of the toppers. Before stencilling I first inked the card base. once the ink and stencil paste was dry I inked the edges of the card, after stamping I added  yellow 3D drops to the candles then finished off by adding the toppers and the die cuts, one of which was one die cut cut in half.

I really enjoyed making this one, my main focus was the large butterfly die cut. to enhance it I used a similar card base from my stash, I then added lava paste through one of the stencils then heated it to create the background finishing the background off by using cadance metallic paints to bring out the pattern made by the lava paste through the stencil. the card was then simply finished off using the butterfly die cut and some of the sentiment toppers.

This sample used the toppers plus background papers adding some of the stamps using an embossing ink pad and a lustre embossing powder. I then added one of the inserts finished off with a couple of the stamps. 

For this one I simply used the toppers and backing papers matting and layering with coordinating papers from my stash.I inked the edges of the backing papers before layering them. I made a gate fold card from a sheet of A4 card.

For this one I took the main topper into my scanncut scanned it on took it into canvas and made my own matts and layers using background papers and coordinating coloured card stock from my stash. I then finished of with a stamped sentiment onto and insert and half of a die cut candelabra in glitter card on the front.

The new USB plus matching dies collection from Kit n Caboodle Clever cutting forms you can print off the topper sheets (for which you have the dies to then cut out) plus backing papers and solid colour sheets and

For this sample I used one of the backing papers, I also used a stencil for the font and an svg file for the cab which also comes with mat layers ( I did add an extra layer myself). I used a white pen to draw the cab before cutting.

Another background paper printed A5 size plus the front view of the cab made in the same way as before, I stencilled the crown and big ben. 

For the cab and bus cards I enlarged the svg files, used one of the mat layers (which I enlarged at the same time) doubled it flipped one and welded them together I then used another one of the same size behind the bus to get a full background (the ones welded together won't be full size as they need to overlap to enable you to weld them). I used an embossing pen in the universal pen holder and black embossing powder. for the bus I then added a yellow embossing powder topped with glossy accents.

For this sample I used a stencil on the card base then edged in ink, a backing paper cut from an svg in two mat layer sizes also with inked edges with another mat layer in the same cardstock as the tower to give definition. Another stencil for the postcard also then inked to give definition finished off with the tower top and mat layer.

another backing paper, three different svg files for the tuck in edges, the candelabra and the tower with the mat layer and card base having inked edges.

For this one I have repeated again a similar process but the picture on the front is one of the Charisma files printed then cut out on the scanncut.

I think this is my favourite as I have made the backing paper A5 before printing onto printable acetate I have then fussy cut flowers and a bird from the same backing paper printed A4 inked the edges then layered on top of the acetate, this serves another purpose in hiding the 3d foam I used to attach the acetate to the card base.
