A-May-Zing CD Launch! Sneak Peeks Day 1!

Afternoon! I hope you've all had a good weekend! You may have seen on the other Crafters Companion DT that there is a new launch coming up in collaboration with the lovely Mr Nigel May from Create & Craft fame! He's designed a new craft CD called All Kinds of Everything and it is soo good! It's packed full of gorgeous things but I do have to say the papers are my favourite, they're fabulous - but then I do love a good patterned paper! I've been working on a little project using the CD and I'm going to show you a little bit of it everyday until the launch on Thursday 19th April at 9pm.

To make it a bit more exciting, any comments you may wish to leave me will enter you into a draw to win a signed photo of Nigel! I'll announce a winner from all the comments on my A-May-Zing posts left before Weds 18th at 9pm, on my last Sneak Peek post on Thursday morning, if that makes sense! There's also a chance to win the CD itself over on the CC Blog!
Here's the first few cards I've made. Basically it's a little set of 12 cards that can be given as a gift. I wanted them to be fairly clean & simple to show this CD can be for beginners as well - I've sure my DT buds will show you how to step it up a notch! I also needed the cards to be quite flat, you'll see why on Thursday! Every card has a matching envelope and insert, all from the CD.
I'm posting 3 cards everyday and I'll try and group them, today's cards could all be for the guys! Here they are!

This ones using one of the toppers and tags from the Card Companions section, backing paper from the CD with some die cuts and a bit of doodling.
I'm entering this into Our Creative Corner - Boys and their Toys

This is using one of the embellishments from the CD, it's meant to look like a big shiny epoxy shape so I double embossed it with clear embossing powder to emphasise that and added a die cut frame. Again, papers from the CD, more doodling and a few gems.
This one I'm entering for Secret Crafter - Mens Cards
Lastly a Valentines card, I've tried to include all occasions in this set so whoever received it would be prepared for anything! The shaped patterned paper is from the shaped cards section, I just cut mine out and adhered it to some glitter paper, added a framed sentiment from the sentiments section, a few gems, strip of ribbon and I'm done! This one is for Paper Sundaes - Anything Goes

Thanks for looking today, I'll be back tomorrow with another 3 cards! Have a great evening!
