SWALK Pawfect Pals – Sneak Peek no.3 for today!

And here I am again!

I know you want to see more before the launch of the SWALK Pawfect Pals range tomorrow so I thought I would give you another image. This time it’s a dog! Every SWALK character in this range is shown with a pet/animal so this range is perfect for all the animal lovers out there.

I coloured this little person as a boy but you could easily turn the character into a girl by changing the colour of the outfit. And of course the dog would look just as lovely in black, brown or even purple if you are feeling brave! I used my Spectrum Noir pens to colour the image, the Petite Dots embossing folder by Crafter’s Companion and a backing paper from the Pawfect Pals CD-ROM for the background. Hope you like it!

SWALK Pawfect Pals – Another sneak peek for today

Hello hello again!

I just had to give you another sneak peek for today! I had so much fun colouring these stamps so I have to show you!

This one is the little princess kissing the frog. Isn’t she cute?!

Again, I used my Spectrum Noir pens to colour the image. To make the heart shaped easel card I used the Crafter’s Companion Ulti-Bags board. See? You don’t have to use it just to make boxes! The backing papers are from the SWALK Pawfect Pals CD-ROM. The stamps and the CD-ROM will be released on Friday so make sure to check the Crafter’s Companion News Blog for more information and more sneak peeks!!!

SWALK Pawfect Pals

Hello all

I have a little sneak peek for you today. It’s one of the new SWALK Pawfect Pals stamp. And yes, it’s a kitty! It’s no secret that I love cats so I can immediately drawn to this image.

I used my Spectrum Noir pens to colour this image in purple. But then I thought that she would look good in red as well so I created another card with the same stamp

The backing paper is from the Pawfect Pals CD-ROM. Most papers have a lovely texture and they look really good.

You have to wait a little bit more before you can get your paws on this stamp and CD-ROM – but it’s not long now, Friday is almost here!

Make sure to visit the Crafter’s Companion blog for more information and for more sneak peeks!

SWALK – Butterflies

I can’t believe it’s been so long since I last blogged… It feels like it was only last week. I have no idea where April went it’s now May and June is approaching fast. Gah! I need more time in my days!

The weather has been horrible, so much rain and cold… I need some sunshine in my life, I need something to recharge my batteries!

What really helped me cope with all this bad weather is colouring these beautiful new SWALK stamps. Butterflies! I wish the weather would get better so we could see some butterflies but for now here are some coloured ones.

The image is coloured with Spectrum Noir pens and I was a bit bold adding blue ribbon but it worked! I think that blue and red is now probably my favourite colour combination! The rainbow and the cloud along with the sentiment are on the same plate. I’ve masked the cloud and stamped 3 overlaping eachother. I also used the little individual butterfly that also comes on the stamp plate and added one on her hat and one on the sentiment. And of course the clouds needed some glitter!

I also took a little close up as I am very proud of how that hat turned out! I think the Spectrum Noir are turning me into a better colourer (or colour-iner… or something like that…)

I will put the Spectrum Noir pens numbers I used on here later as I don’t have them with me at the moment.

Oh and I almost forgot! Make sure you enter the Crafter’s Companion competition over at https://www.crafterscompanion.co.uk/members/competitions.html   
for a chance to win the 12 new stamps and the Resource CD – together they are worth over £60!!!!!!!!

Good luck and see you soon!!! 😀

Today is the day!

Good morning all!

Launch day today, are you excited? In just a few hours you’ll be able to order your own SWALK Winter Cheer stamps and CD-ROM.

Here I am with my last sneak peek and it’s all about partying!

It’s called “Time to celebrate” and it makes me want to party! I’ve used Nestabilities to make the shaped easel card and some Core’dinations card for matting and layering. The stamp was coloured with my Spectrum Noir pens. I have added a tiny bit of glitter on the image to add some sparkle. The backing papers are both from the SWALK Winter Cheer CD-ROM.

I am looking forward to the shows tomorrow. Unfortunately I will be at work until 4.00pm so I have already set up the box to record them. Can’t wait to see what Leann has prepared for her demos, I love getting ideas and tips!

Love, Nandia

SWALK Winter Cheer – Sneak Peek No.5

Good morning again!

Here we are with sneak peek no. 5! Pink colours today. I made an acetate easel card, a little thing I came up – it looks like the topper is floating.

She looks like a fun grandmother, doesn’t she? I used my Spectrum Noir to colour the image in. She might have grey hair but I think that her pink outfit makes her look really modern and funky.

The backing papers are from the SWALK Winter Cheer CD-ROM, I told you I really love that gingham paper with the snowflakes. Not long to go now until you get your own stamps – just 3 more sleeps to go! Are you excited about the shows? I know I am!

Love, Nandia

SWALK Winter Cheer – Sneak Peek No. 4

Hello all!

Here I am again. It’s Monday, not really my favourite day of the week but oh well….

I have another sneak peek for you! This time it’s the “Snowmen fall from Heaven” stamp.

I chose purples and pinks for this stamp and I used my Spectrum Noir pens. I took a close up of the stamp as well.

The card template with the snowflakes frame was cut by my eCraft out of Core’dinations card.

I created the template in the eCraft Shop Pro programme, it was sooo easy. I love the freedom eCraft gives me. I can design whatever I want, I am not limted by sticky mats and I can cut up to 12inches wide and whatever length I want (This card is 5.5 inches square). If you don’t know what this eCraft I am talking about is then you better have a look at the Crafter’s Companion website under Craftwell

Have fun crafting and have a lovely day!

Love, Nandia

SWALK Winter Cheer – Sneak Peek No. 3

Hello again!

A bit late today but it is Sunday and I’ve been a bit lazy. I got up at 10.00am and sat down watching Sara on Create & Craft. Loving the Christms Easel Die-Cut decoupage card kits, I need to order myself a couple of sets for my quick Christmas cards! The kit has everything I love in a card, easel shape and decoupage plus you can put it together in minutes! Perfect for Christmas as I am ALWAYS late at making my cards and then I panic. (

But I am getting carried away here! I am meant to be showing you a sneak peek.

I love sneak peeks! And they are also a way for people to get inspiration so when they have their own stamps they straight away have ideas to start crafting!

This stamp is called “Winter Wonderland”. I went with a classic blue for boys and pink for girls. The papers are from the SWALK Winter Cheer CD-ROM. The gingham paper with the snowflakes in all the colours is one of my favourites.

I also took a little close up of the colouring. I used my Spectrum Noir pens  for the colouring. I have also added some Stickles on the snow but it doesn’t really show on the photo.

Make sure you take part in Crafter’s Companion blog hop to win all 12 stamps and the CD-ROM. You can find more details in the Crafter’s Companion News, Views and Inspiration blog.

SWALK Sneak Peek 1 – Shop till you drop!

Here I go again! I’ve been away for a while (well maybe more than a while…) but I am back now and look at what I have! The new SWALK stamps! The first one of my sneak peeks is called “Shop till you drop”.

Isn’t she lovely? I want to go shopping when I look at her. Especially christmas shopping. I picked red colours for her and used my Spectrum Noir pens to colour her.

The card is a design I’ve been thinking for a while. It has another piece of acetate in the middle where the sentiment and a little stamped embelishment sits. I took a picture of the card laying down so you can see what I mean. The front also has acetate and the ribbon is stuck on it.Will be back with more sneak peeks tomorrow and something else that you won’t want to miss! *winks*

Love, Nandia
