Crafting With Hunkydory Perfect Petals Members Free Gift

Hi everyone,

It's been a little while since I have blogged craft - I was so overloaded with crafting for the Christmas shop I tried selling in, and then moved house - but now all my things are fairly well organised - in fact I think my craft stash is better organised than it was before - so I thought I'd share a couple of quick makes mainly using a Hunkydory card kit.

For anyone who doesn't know Hunkydory, their products are always really good quality, often foiled and detailed, and I've found you can get quite a lot out of one kit, even a topper kit if you are economical and don't try and use it all up on one or two projects. Their club is free to join and you get access to lots of content on their website, sometimes you will see a 'club price' for items if your signed up and signed in. They do free gifts - I was slightly sucked in when I saw the word 'free' - but every so often they introduce a members gift and you can order this, and either pay £2.99 postage if you've ordered it on it's own, or pay nothing if you have other things in your basket.

The Perfect Petals Kit included several topped sheets, card inserts, papers and card - plenty to make a good few cards, and ideal for tags, maybe gift boxes for light items as well. I think there's a lot you can do with it, but today I wanted to share a couple of quick makes.

I used a kraft card style blank here, along with ribbon tied in a double bow and a small flower gem. All the rest was mixed and matched from the kit. The card blank was just opened out, and then each side was folded into the middle. I'm a little unsure about mixing and matching different patterns sometimes, but I think this turned out well.

This card again used some small flower gems from my stash, and a brad which I stuck through a small part of a border strip I'd folded from the kit. Happy Mother's Day was stamped using alphabet stamps from the Papermania/Do Crafts Urban Stamps Collection.

Hope you all enjoy these new makes - will be back soon with something I've made for the Baker Ross Blogger network. if you're a crafty blogger too I would love to hear more, so do please connect and share your links etc. All support and comments are much appreciated. You can also easily comment as a guest if you're not signed up to any network given in the options.

Have a great day everyone.

Action Themed Handmade Card - Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Hi Everyone, Hope you're all having a good week! Just want to say thanks to all of you that have been reading and commenting on my blog posts, especially the recent craft ones, joining in with the Daring Cardmakers challenges. I don't always have time to blog along, but this week the theme was 'action', and it was the perfect excuse to make a card with a topper kit I have had laying around for ages. The card I made is perfect for sports fans of all ages, and as a big diving fan, I'm sure this one will be a lot of fun for all. My main image and some of the extra bits are from a Hunkydory kit, I just love the image of the guy diving and his reflection shown in the water.  Copyright 2017 - These City Days I found some aperture cards in my stash and I'm enjoying decorating round the edges and adding some dimension to the designs. This time I went for a few sentiments, stars punched from holographic card, and some jute twine from Baker Ross.  I am slight

Daring Cardmakers - Trim The Tree Craft Challenge - Cross Stitch Card

Hi Everyone, It's the start of another week, and I'm fresh from seeing some of my favourite musical friends, for the first time in a long while, at our Christmas light switch on. I have some video, but I have never edited video clips in my life, so while I figure out what I'm doing, time to catch up on some other blog posts. I have joined in and submitted craft projects to the Daring Cardmakers Challenge before, and it's been great fun. So I just want to thank everyone who has commented on my previous posts, and add to this weeks challenge 'Trim The Tree'. I am working my way through a few small cross stitch kits from magazine free gifts, and this tree design really stuck out from my stash. It was easy and fun to stitch, and I even tweaked it a bit to add some gold glitter for the star at the top. Instead of hanging it in the supplied aperture card though, I found a plant pot topper with 25 on, and mounted it on a card just above that. The finished car

3 Ways With Mama Makes Bohemian Border Stamps

Hi Everyone, There's a little bit of a crafty overload here and on social media at the moment, but there are other posts planned and in draft form, so please look out for those, they just take a little bit of time to put together. Meantime I wanted to share the Mama Makes Bohemian Border stamps. I am a member of the design team, but bought these as I really liked the range of different designs - there are 10 in total, and had quite a few ideas of what I could do with them. I thought I'd post the stamps below, and 3 very different makes I came up with using them. 1) A Christmas Card - The Bohemian Border here I used as a Christmas garland, and absolutely love how it looks all coloured and glittered (had to get a little sparkle in there). The other thing I like about this set, is some of the designs are more of a bunting/garland shape, and not just a straight line, so there are handy gaps you can decorate with stick on gems or small embellishments for a finishing touch.
