Emporium of Curiosities Debut

Today and tomorrow sees the debut of a fabulous new CD from Kraftyhands on the British Craft Network. It's called Emporium of Curiosities and is packed full of the most gorgeous vintage and Steampunk images and papers. There are toppers, postcards, embellishments and more.
Here are some samples I created with the CD.

I scruffed the edges of blue card and the images, added lace and die-cut feathers.

A simple card using a couple of papers and postcards as tags.

I created a base for the wonderful vintage paper and image by Frantaging some SB die-cuts. I added frantaged butterflies and some pearl flowers.

Here I've used  some elements from one of the card making sets. I embossed around the clock face and the center of the paper buttons. A doily and a corner die-cut are the only items I added.

Here I've layered up some beautiful papers and postcards with die-cut clocks. I've added Frantage to some of the corners.

So many of the papers and images can be used for either male or female cards. Here I prettied a postcard topper by adding a bunch of roses I cut from one of the backing papers.
Make sure you watch the Kraftyhands shows on the British Craft Network to see more samples and some fabulous demonstrations by the boys.
The CD is available from the Kraftyhands webshop.
