Boutique Chic Show

Hi everyone. If anyone missed the original launch of Hunkydory's Boutique Chic collection Jak is on Create and Craft today at 3pm with this collection.

Below is one of the cards that I created with this collection for the original launch. This was a large card at 8x8".
 I wanted it to look like a glass bathroom shelf with the perfume bottles on it!
 It took me a little while to work out how to hide all the assembly of it but I got there in the end!
 As you can see I prettied up the inside too with the gorgeous matching inserts.

Hunkydory's Boutique Chic Collection

Just stopping by to let you all know that this fabulous collection is now available on Hunkydory's website.

I was lucky enough to make some sample cards for the launch of this collection on Create and Craft and it was a joy to work with - it contains such pretty imagery which to me has a parisian feel to it. I loved working with this kit.

 Above is one of the cards that I created using this collection and below is the left hand view of the card.
 Here's a closer view taken from the right-hand side.
And this shows looking down on the card. Of course it had to have the matching insert but you can't really see this. The cardstock used to make the base card came from the Adorable Scorable Boutique Chic Collection - just love this cardstock - it scores SO beautifully and is such a fabulous sturdy cardstock.
I'm now working on Hunkydory's next collection - I LOVE IT!!!

A Hunkydory Father's Day

Helloooooo.  I thought I'd share something different with you today as earlier this year I became part of Hunkydory's Design Team. I know that most of you know me for working with stamps, inks and alcohol markers but it's been a little secret of mine for a while now that I just LOVE all things Hunkydory!!!  Their products are such top quality that they are an absolute pleasure to work with - I just wish that I was able to work with them more often but I'm normally too busy doing inky things!!

Anyway I thought today I'd give you a sneak preview of Dad's Father's Day card this year that was made using one of my favourite images from the Shimmering Pearl Collection. 
This particular collection is just full of gorgeous pearlised imagery as it has been printed and foiled onto Centura cardstock - it is simply stunning!!

This card is quite large - just a little under A4. As you can see from the photo below I added some heavyweight acetate to the front to give some depth and interest to the card. So consequently i  have made a box for it to go into.

Of course it just had to have the matching pearlescent insert sheet to finish it off inside.

Fingers crossed that Dad likes it!!
