Popcorn Kids

Tomorrow sees the launch of the new Popcorn Bear Kids stamps by Crafters Companion on Create and Craft for the Pick of the Week.  He will also be available from the Crafters Companion Website. 

I have always loved Popcorn Bear but have not used the stamps much as they have always been on the large size.  Well I am THRILLED to say that this new release is a lot smaller and just the perfect size for the 6 x 6 cards that I love to make.

Here’s some of the samples that I made for tomorrow’s TV launch.  I freehanded an apple shape for the first card, used an EK Success border punch and the papers from the accompanying CD.  The card size is 6 x 6 so you can see what a nice size Popcorn is now – aaah that’s much better.

Check out his little blankie hanging out of his school bag lol.

For my second project I made a tealight holder after getting the most amazing gift off Pops (but hers had a tube of Rolos in – mmmmm delish lol)

Again the paper is off the CD, the image has been coloured with Distress Inks and Twinks and lots of Stickles applied to the bubbles.

The pretty lace border is cut with a Spellbinders Grand Lace Die

  13. Wow, Bev - two adorable cards! It is really nice, that Popcorn has been "downsized" - I am looking forward to order these stamps. Yesterday I coloured two of the really large ones, it is fun, but to make a card with them is not easy.
    Your cards are perfect as alwalys!

  16. Love Popcorn bear - bought quite a few in a sale the other week. Not sure whether downsizing is good or not. The larger ones were good value and great for 8" x 8" - there are loads of small stamps on the market.
    Fantastic designs though - very cute.

  21. Hi Bev
    love your apple card, who wouldn't be teacher's pet if a little one was to give this to their teacher. I love the way you have said that you freehanded your apple, I can't imagine that there are many that would be able to do that (I include myself in that lol).
