Patchwork Forest Gang

Hi All!
Over at the ABC challenge this week, the challenge is Tic Tac Toe - a choice of elements that you can use on your cards. I chose to use the Ribbon, Sentiment and Pearls/Gems option.

This card was made using elements from the Hunkydory Return to Patchwork Forest Collection. On one of the backing papers from the pad I added some hand cut decoupage of the little characters layering them up with 3D gel. Two of these images I added to an acetate wrap so that when the card stands up and the acetate swings forward they all look like they are standing in a group.

I then cut bunting from the paper pad and created the banner sentiment 'From Us All', decorating it with ribbon and gems.
Finally I decorated inside with a matching insert and anther cut out sentiment.

Best wishes

Hunkydory Concept Cards

I just thought I'd pop by and share a few of the concept cards I have made from recent Hunkydory kits. These are so simple yet effective to make and make quick cards to give to friends and family, or to sell, or give to charity.
Hope you like them x

Return to Patchwork Forest



Radiant Roses


Decadent Moments



Decadent Days





Red Roses

Over on the Scrapology blog, the card challenge this month is Anything Goes, so I decided to create another card using the lovely Radiant Roses collection from Hunkydory.


I created a gatefold card and decoupaged the image before decorating inside to match.

I wanted to make an elegant looking card and I think the red rose design is perfect for this!
Best wishes and bye for now

Mouse Companion

Afternoon everyone!
Well, I'm still loving the little mice from Brambly Hedge and today I thought I'd share a card using one of the Card Companions on the new CD released by Crafter's Companion.

  These 'companions' make a card so easy to put together with all the elements printable from just two sheets ready for you to cut out and create.

I added an embossed background of Core'dinations card - embossed with a Die'sire 'Flower Power' embossing folder. After adding my matts and layers, creating the flowers and adding a sentiment, I finished off with pearl dots and glitter.

Anyway, hope you like this card. I'd like to enter it into the following challenges:

Paddling Mice

Morning All!
Just a quick post to share a little top fold card I made using one of the lovely little stamps from the Sea Story - Brambly Hedge range.

I coloured the image with my Spectrum Noir pens and pencils and then die cut the image. The card was made from Centura Pearl, a piece of which I embossed and then coloured over completely with my Spectrums to create a background and to colour match my image. I then added, mesh, ribbon, gems and some seashell charms. I love this dinky card - hope you do too!

Best wishes and bye for now

Autumn Leaves

Afternoon All!
Just thought I'd pop by to share a card I made using one of the 'Autumn' themed stamps from the Brambly Hedge range by Crafter's Companion. 


I love these images and the stamps are perfect for putting your own colour combinations together. I chose to use oranges, browns and greens - coloured with my Spectrum Noir pens and pencils.
The leafy background papers were printed from a Flower Fairies CD and I used Kraft card for a rustic look. I even found some leafy trim in my stash.

Anyway, hope you like it.
I would like to enter this card in the Papertake Weekly Challenge which this week is 'Anything Goes' and the Crafty Creations Sketch Challenge.

Bye for now
