Hunkydory Review

Hello to you all....
I am here today doing a review of some Hunkydory products.

Lucky Me

I was given up to £30 to spend on whatever I fancied, and wow what a selection
it was very hard , in fact I will be going back to treat myself to some more
of there gorgeous goodies that I have got my eyes on........

Blossoming Blues
Butterfly Wishes
Anyway this is what I decided on and below are
a couple of cards I have made.

I stamped embossed and fussy cut one of the Butterfly stamps and chose the papers
and die-cuts I wanted to use.....

I have distressed the edges of the papers and added one of the numerous die cut shapes
which I stamped with a couple of the verses that came with the Butterfly set

I have another card using more papers that have been distressed, I also went around the edge of the die-cut with some black distress ink,the butterflies are more die-cuts as is the sentiment.

Couldn't resist making another card I have  stamped directly onto the papers and they take the ink so well, I then die-cut a couple of butterflies and added some twine .

Well I can honestly say I have thoroughly enjoyed using these products the papers are superb
and I love all the foiling around the die-cuts . The stamps are very detailed and ink up beautifully.
I have still got stacks of papers and card still to use and some gorgeous vellum all I can say
is watch this space.
Lots more to come

London Town

Hello to you all
I was having a sort out of my stamps
and came across this Darkroom Door set of London
I know I had used it once but  I am ashamed 
to say that was about two years ago. I have found some 
more that I haven't used for a while so am 
determined to start using them.

I have stamped this with Versafine onto a PanPastel 
background. The sentiment is a Christina Griffiths stamp.
