My Fair Lady

One of my favourite musicals and one the parts I would most like to play - Eliza Doolittle! And Hunkydory have brought out a kit called My Fair Lady, reminiscent of some of the fabulous costumes that Audrey Hepburn dons in that fabulous film!!

I got the kit for half price when I bought it with the new Hunkydory mag and here are a few makes using the lilac toppers/cardstock.

This one is made using some of the toppers and one of the sheets of cardstock, cut down to fit. Finished with silver mirri and some lilac pearl gems.

This one again is made using elements of a couple of the sheets of cardstock along with toppers from the topper sheet, along with some ribbon, silver mirri and lilac pearl gems.

The border at the side is cut from one piece of cardstock with another border from the topper sheet layered over that .. 

This one is made from one of the sheets of cardstock, which had this image on it. I cut the image down and mounted the frame from the topper sheet around it. The background is created with two different shades of Adorable Scorable and then embossed with my trellis embossing folder. I then stuck one of the borders from the topper sheet down the divide to hide it. Finished with some pearl gems, one of the tag toppers + some ribbon and I used silver mirri again for the matt.

Hope you have all had a lovely weekend! Back to it now!

Out of this World!

More Smudge and Mitten for you this morning. I wasn't sure about how this one turned out but I will share anyway, I am sure it will perfect for a little boy's birthday ..

I don't tend to make A5 cards and I know why! I find it really hard to make it look balanced and fill the space. Saying that, I still love these characters, so cute!

So, anyway, here it is ...

I put the matching insert inside too ..

I have always left my insides blank but am getting a bit hooked to inserts, they do just make it look that much better! 

Hope you are all having a fab weekend!

Two by Two - Hunkydory

During my mahoosive craft sesh this week, I also made some cards using the Two by Two kit that comes free with the current issue of the Hunkydory mag - seriously worth getting. The artwork is amazing, it just makes me smile!!

These cards are simple but they don't need much else - in fact the second one is just one half of one the A4 sheets folded in half .. I couldn't bare to cover it up with anything!

How amazing is it! The only extra thing I used was some gold mirri on the top card. Seriously, is worth getting the mag just for this kit, perfect for all those little people with upcoming birthdays!

Happy weekend!

Happy New Home (Smudge and Mitten)

So yesterday I had my crafty day in the dining room and brought half my craft room downstairs, much to hubbie's dismay!! I don't even know how long it is since I have done that and it felt good! Intend to continue today too .. hehe

Made a few cards yesterday but got a couple more Smudge and Mitten ones to share with you today.

The first one is an 8x8 card, not sure if I have ventured into this territory before as I am not a fan of big cards, I never know what to do with them! However, when I went to the Hunkydory shop on Saturday I was inspired by one of them demo cards!

So here is my take:

I used card and toppers from the kit with the matching insert, along with some silver mirri, pearl gems and white ribbon for the tag. Not sure whether it needs more ...

Here is the side view so you can see how it works with the aperture and the matching inside :)

I had some of the A4 sheet left over both from the insert and the cardstock so this is the card I made from the leftovers ..

Happy Thursday .. it is nearly the weekend!

Smudge and Mitten

Good afternoon!!

Had a bit of a crafty morning and hoping it will continue into the afternoon! I decided to break open my Smudge and Mitten papercraft kit that I got on Saturday when I visited the Hunkydory shop in Walton-Le-Dale. Got to meet the lovely Anne-Marie and I am so excited about being on this design team, the kits are all just gorgeous! I struggled to pick just a few things to buy, could have bought the whole blooming shop! hehe

So this is the card I made this morning:

I used a couple of the lovely sheets of cardstock that come with the kit and a couple of the toppers. Also used a bit of cheesecloth behind the middle layer and lots of lovely pearl gems. Stuck them all on individually, am I crazy! 

This is inside, which is one of the matching inserts:

I love these characters, they are so adorable, so going to continue crafting with them this afternoon, watch out for more pics! :)

Hope you are having a lovely day wherever you are!

Thanks for stopping by! Leave and message and I will come and visit you too!

Crafty hugs!

Flutterbye Wishes Decoupage Card

Good afternoon!

Well, I went up into the attic a couple of hours ago to tidy my craft space and of course I got distracted!

I decided to make a card using this gorgeous Flutterbye Wishes Hunkydory kit! I have had this a while, I think I got it free with a magazine so thought it was time it was used!

I started with a 6x6 white card base and matted my layers - some lovely papers from the kit - onto some silver mirri to match the silver foiling on the toppers. I then used one of the decoupage toppers from the kit and one of the sentiments. I used a layer of cheesecloth behind one of the layers to add a bit of detail and finished with some clear gems.

I love this kit, it is so pretty! 

Hope you are all having a lovely day, crafting or not ...
