Smudge and Mitten

Morning Bloggers,

Hope you are all well and having a good week so far. I'm trying my best not to completely loose it with my Ipad, Its so delayed and slow its very close to been thrown out the window lol.. I have tried reducing the amount of things on there but still no joy Arrrhhhh (I just cant afford to replace it yet)

Anyway enough of me moaning.. Onto some more of cards, these are samples I made for the shows on Create and Craft, using the NEW USB from Hunkydory.. I do love these cuties (Smudge and Mitten)

All the backing papers, toppers, sentiments and tags have all been printed from the USB.
I used some of the marvellous mirri pads on this top card.

I love how you can slightly change the black and grey images too by adding a pop of colour with your alcohol markers like I've done on this one..


Again I used my copics to colour this one in..


Thanks for stopping by, off to get some orders completed

A selection of Exploding boxes

Hello Crafty Friends,

I still have masses of creations that I haven't yet blogged. So thought I would catch up and share the rest of the Pop up Box cards I made to order for Mothers Day, these were so popular this year I kinda got fed but of making them lol


I used a variety of dies to die cut flowers and butterflies for all of these. I also used some pre cut felt flowers and butterflies for some of them. I used gems, pearls and buttons in the centre of some of the flowers.

Patterned papers were a mixture from my stash, some of spring themed adorable scorable, coloured card is from hunky-dory and the papermill direct.
Again a Variety of sentiments used on these, some printed from the computer, so are hunky-dory.

USB and a bit of colouring

Morning Bloggers,

Sorry I didn't get to round to posting yesterday, after a appointment with my eldest I was prepping and organising for a Craft fair I have on Saturday. First one for this year, even though I decided last year to not do any more lol. Fingers Crossed it will be worth it.

I have another card to share today that I made using the new Hunkydory USB.. These cuties Smudge and Mitten are just adorable and its great that they come as grey coloured images too.. I decided to use one of the grey images and add some colour using my Copics.

Papers and Sentiment are also from the USB. Finished with a little ribbon from my stash


Thanks for stopping by today. Been a while since I catched up on your blogs, fingers crossed I get some time to have a nosey some time this week

Different ways to use concept cards

Evening Bloggers,

Hope you've all had a nice weekend. I've spent most of it working on samples for Hunkydory and For the Love of Stamps..

I'm just stopping by this evening to share some of the samples I made recently using the Brand New USB from Hunkydory. I got to play with the adorable Smudge and Mitten collection from the USB. There are 7 other collection on there too..

I used the Star concept cards to try create different ways of using it. This first one is how they are suggested to be used.

This next card I assembled the star concept card in the same way but added it onto a easel card blank and decorated the match.

For this next one I again assembled the concept card as normal but attached it to a acetate front.
And finally for the last one I just added the made up concept card to a normal 7x7 card blank

(congratulations on passing driving test card)

Thanks for stopping by today.

Little Books and Essential Card Blanks

Good Morning Crafty Friends,

We had more of the white stuff last night, more than I expected really. Hopefully we won't get any more today and it will disappear quite quickly lol..

I'm sharing the last of the samples I made for Hunkydory using the new Essentials Card Blanks. Oh my goodness these are amazing quality as are all of Hunkydorys products. I will be using these for many of my creations now..

I Think these rainbow coloured ones are my fav of the new card blanks, they instantly make me think of butterflies, mermaids and fairies etc..
I used the Moonstone Mandala dies for the flowers and butterflies.
These pretty fairy images are from The Little Book of Midnight Fairies and the foiled acetate is from the Twilight Fairies Collection
I used the Moonstone Mandala Dies on this card too. Image is from the Little Book of Milestone Birthdays..

Essential Card Blanks

Morning Bloggers,

Hope you are all well.. It's dull and wet here today. So after school run and running a few errand this morning I'm hoping for a day In my nice warm craft room. Fingers Crossed!!

There are some brand new Essentials Card Blanks launching on Create and Craft this morning at 11am.. Tune in to see the lovely Sheila with her 2 two hour show... These card blanks are so beautiful.

Here are a few of the samples I made using them.


For all of these cards I just used card blanks and some sentiments from the 2018 essential sentiment little book. I used moonstone nesting dies too. The card blanks are great to use on their own like this or I have teamed them up with lots of toppers and collections from my stash that I will blog another day.
