Time for something a little different with Hunkydory

Hunkydory Spring Pearls Collection Card

Well its a little bit different for me anyway. I bought the Hunkydory Spring Pearls kit and here is the first of my cards I have made from it for our Friday Sketch Challenge reminder post:

Toread Autumn postcards

Toread Post Card

I fell in love with these little Toread characters as soon as I saw them, they are just too cute (so much so I ordered 3 more stamps). Here are 2 postcards I made for a swap using the stamps I got with the CD (when it was on Create and Craft). I sprayed some kraft card with a  pearly mist spray and then cut some leaves using a cuttlebug die. I ran the leaves through various embossing folders to give them some texture and glued them randomly on the card around the cut out Toread character (who were coloured with Copic pens ).

Male themed Mimic Creations Car card

Mimic Car with Union Jack

For this Swing style card I used just the car and the Union Jack from the Mimic Creations CD to make the topper and let the software make the backing paper for me. I cut the Cogs using my Spellbinders Sprightly Sprockets die. The card would be perfect for any man or teenager in your life, you know, the one who is always hard to make cards for.

Mimic Creations Marilyn Monroe card

This particular card inspired Hayley West to make a card on one of the first shows this week, I used a BCE Template but Hayley’s card was much more simple, I hope you didn’t miss the dimensions she used, She took a strip of card and folded each end in to the middle to create the “boxes” and the image was stuck in the middle where they met.

Patriotic Bunting

The union Jack on the Mimic Creations CD was crying out to be made into bunting. I used my Xcut dies for the inside and Geraldine lent me her scalloped dies for the layer on the back.

Here is a close up of the flowers I made with my Tim Holtz die to go on either end. I printed out the paper, cut them with the die and sprayed them with water to give them that tattered look.

 

More Exciting News!

The A Team card

My cards are going to be on the TV!  This week’s pick of the week on Create and Craft TV is a CD with artwork by Mimic Creations and I was asked to make cards for the samples on the shows. Here is the first one I made:

The A Team card

The disk is so easy to use and the artwork is so fun to work with, you can create your own papers, inserts, envelopes etc with the images too.

This would be great for either of my Brothers, I remember them sitting down on a Saturday evening to watch the A Team and loving it!

More cards to come over the week so stay tuned.
