Cherished Moments

How adorable is this Verity Rose Cupcake stamp?!? She’s so full of elegance, and dainty, and everything a lady should be!

I’ve colored her up with my Spectrum Noir markers. I also added a border stamp and a teapot stamp from the Crafter’s Companion Downton Abbey line, also colored with Spectrum Noir markers. The sentiment, from the Crafter’s Companion Sentimentals Vintage Florals Sentiments stamp set, was stamped with Versamark ink and embossed with gold embossing powder.

Downton Abbey card

I just love the elegant, timeless look and feel of the Downton Abbey collection, available at Crafter’s Companion US, and the Downton Abbey cardmaking kit from Crafter’s Companion US, available at HSN.



Here I have used some papers and embellishments from the Downton Abbey cardmaking kit  to make this masculine themed gatefold card. For the shirt, I found some origami instructions online, then used one of the papers from the kit and folded it into a shirt. Great card for any man in your life, don’t you agree?


Downton Abbey Papercrafting Collection at Crafter’s Companion US

You’ve been waiting oh so patiently, and today is the day! The Downton Abbey Papercrafting Collection is now available at Crafter’s Companion USA! There are so many beautifully elegant dies and stamps in this collection, but that’s just a start. There are embossing folders, luxury paper pads, all kinds of embellishments (paper flowers, resin flowers, brads, ribbons, charms and more!), plus a 3-disc papercrafting CD too! The CD is chock full of printable papers and papercrafting elements, plus lots of project tutorials to get you started.


This card was made using papers from the Downton Abbey 12×12 Luxury Paper Pad, plus a printable framed art embellishment from the Downton Abbey papercrafting CD and two toppers from the Downton Abbey Die Cut Toppers 2 set. I used the Big Score scoring board to create the card base. A tutorial for how to create this step card base can be found on the Crafter’s Companion blog HERE.
