Leather Effect and Giveaway!

Hello friends
Today I would like to introduce you to Angela Dodson who is a
member of the Papermill Design Team.
She has created these two lovely projects using the limited edition
leather embossed card in buff and white.
A clever handbag. 
And a wallet with faux stitching.
The card really does look like leather!
I am pleased to say that I have a limited stock of the leather effect card in buff and white
available in the shop - sold in small boxes - £5.00 white, £4.50 buff.

Now - for those of you who cannot make it to the shop I thought I would arrange a giveaway
of some of the leather effect card.  Really simple, just leave a comment and I will pick
out a few names next week.

For more brilliant projects be sure to check out Angela's blog here.

I'm heading off to Faversham this morning - The Artistic Stamper,
today is Spellbinders Create A Flower class.
Really looking forward to spending the whole day creating.

Enjoy your Sunday and don't forget to leave a comment.
Take care friends.

Morning Christine
I have used this leather effect card in the past - and I have found it to be excellent. I love the idea of using it for a faux handbag
Have a nice day

Hello Christine, I like very much the leather look card as I still have a few pieces left from a visit to a Paper Mill shop at Sprinfields. I have mainly for the fronts of "books". Enjoy your day and hopefully the sunshine also.

These are great projects and the leather look card seems really useful! Enjoy your day with Jennie!

Diane said...

I had a few sheets of leather look card, years ago. I made a purse and wallet with them, but could never find a realistic effect on any card I saw advertised after that. This card looks brilliant and I would be rushing down to your shop if I were close enough. I hope very much to be lucky this time for the give away (I don't usually win anything, so I probably won't be lucky) . Got to be in it to win it they say!

Hi Christine,
The leather look paper looks great,the handbag and wallet look lovely. I do wish we all lived near your shop.
I hope you have a good day. Take care. x.

Jane Willis said...

I'd love to try the leather effect card, it looks great in the photos. I used to like a product called "Almost leather" that was a foam you stamped in and heated to give an embossed faux leather effect but I've not seen it for years.

Chris said...

Hi Christine, I love the look of the faux leather paper, and the handbag and wallet look great. Enjoy yourself today at Faversham, the flowers on your project are gorgeous. Lovely picture of Bella protecting her toys whilst sleeping on Facebook. How are Elliott and Mitchell doing?

Sandra Biggs said...

Hi Christine, I very much like the look of the leather paper. I have just received my diary for September and am already thinking how I can cover it so it is different to everyone elses. Love the projects too. Enjoy your day.

lydia jordan said...

Morning Christine,
I had seen Angela's project's on the PMD website, they are lovely.
Enjoy your day in Faversham making those beautiful flowers.

val jones said...

Hi Christine. At first glance I thought the handbag WAS a handbag. Thant and the wallet are lovely.
Enjoy your day.
Love Val in Spain x

Hi Christine,

thank you so much for featuring 2 of my projects using the 'papermill leather embossed' card. It really is quite realistic and super to work with. There are some more pics of the projects on my blog including inside views of the wallet.

btw the buff colour is extra nice to use for those often difficult to make 'male themed' cards too.

I just need to persuade them to make it in other colours too ;)

Have a wonderful day

Good morning Christine
Is this really paper - it looks just like real leather. The finished products are fantastic.
Enjoy your day crafting today - the project looks gorgeous.

Lynn said...

Morning Christine, I have a 'block' of navy leather effect card that I picked up at the NEC a few years ago, I've used it in the past as a base for cards for men, I shall have to dig it out and see what I can create. I intend to have a crafty day today (got a craft fair next week) and also next Thursday, 2 full days of craft in a week aren't I lucky ?. Have a great Sunday, wish I was closer to be able to attend your workshops. Lynn xx

PharmacyMichele said...

The two projects look fantastic-very realistic for "leather look", hope you have a great day crafting.

Hi Christine

I love how Angela has used the leather effect card... I would like a bag like that in real life!

I do miss the local Papermill shop, as they have you as an outlet in the south do think they do more outlets?

Sandra said...

Hi Christine,
Well I wish I was joining you in Faversham, I really do, that project is gorgeous!
I had some sheets of the faux leather card years ago but it was in a yucky blue colour, I would love some white, and the tan colour looks so realistic on the wallet, very clever, I will go check out the blog!
I am trying to update mine daily!
Have a great say everyone no matter what you are to!
Crafty hugs all round,
Sandra xxxx

joyce mose said...

Hello Christine,
The leather effect looks really good. I think Sizzix had packs called sizzles which were all different colours. Always nice to have texture on a card.

Men's cards always make you have to think hard about what design to do but these leather effect cards are fabulous and the handbag for the girls is fantastic

Hi Christine
It's really hard to believe this is card not real leather! Two great makes from Angela, both very different from the usual greetings cards.
Hope you have a lovely day at Artistic Stamper, another beautiful, sunny day 😎

Afternoon Christine, Wow, Wow, Wow, this card looks exactly like leather, so realistic !! and I'm loving the bag and wallet. This card is definitely going on my very long 'Wish List' haha.
I hope you are having a lovely day at your flower class.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Maggie said...

Hello Christine. I have never seen anything like this and am amazed at the effect it gives. Would love the chance to have a play - not that I ever win anything but maybe I can find it in your shop. Fingers crossed. I hope you've had a great day doing crafting your way and again, many thanks for your blog and daily updates. xxMargaretxx

SusanP, Kent said...

I like this leather-look card. I've never seen anything like it before and would love to give it a try. Angela's projects are great too - I particularly liked the extra texture it gives to the card shown on the blog.

Bejay Roles said...

Goodness, I love the leather effect card. I've not seen anything like that in my area. Sadly, I'm right the other side of the south from you, here in Cornwall. If I'd been closer I would have come into the shop to buy some of your stock. I'll instead have to keep my fingers crossed in the hope that I'm one of the lucky ones to get chosen for your kind give-away. x

Maggie Phillips said...

Hi Christine.I hope that you've had a super day at The Artistic Stamper ~ the flowers look great! Angela's 'leather look' projects are brilliant ~ I love the card,it's so realistic.Keeping my fingers crossed,thank you for the chance to win.Hugs,

Hope your enjoying this beautiful weather and that the boys are doing good, take care. Alma x

Pollypurplehorse said...

good morning everyone, thank you so much for all the lovely comments on my projects. :)

I am going into hospital today for a little op. But when i am back on my feet i will be looking at making some tutorials. I tend to make things as I go along but quite a few people have asked about measurements etc, so i will do my best as soon as I can.

Morning Christine
These 2 cards look so life-like and I love the buff leather look card - so realistic. These are fab

Christine said...

I love the extra texture this card gives to projects and are exactly right for the projects featured. Great job :-)

viki said...

I love the bag + wallet, great inspiration.I have used the leather card before + loved it, though not in buff (I nearly typed "in THE buff", ha ha) Sadly we no longer have a papermill outlet in Northern Ireland ,so I can't just "nip in" to top up my stash.

Carole said...

Wow! this is so leather like! The handbag is fab.
