Hunkydory- Fairy Sweethearts x

For this card I started of with an 8x8" card blank and covered it with rainbow card, I then placed a piece of foiled paper from the paper pad. I had a piece of it left over so I cut 2 pieces 8"x 1.5" and joined the end together then with a score board I scored at every half inch then the folded using mountain and valley folds then joined the ends together to form a circle, with a glue gun I place some glue in the middle and pushed the paper together and placed the sentiment on top while the glue was still wet.
With the topper I used diamond sparkles on the fairies wings and placed all the topper to the card.
Then by a mistake I dropped some glue on to the card and it had left a mark when I got it of so luckily on the same topper sheet there was some silver hearts so I used these to cover up the marks.
I finished of with some gems and an insert, what little girl wouldn't love a card like this xx

Crafters Companion - Barkley

I was so pleased when Crafters Companion brought out a Barkley paper kit with all the extras and at the moment I think it may be one of my favourite kits

For this card all I have used is a topper and border with a sentiment from the kit, the papers were from the paper pad.
I started by covering an 7" card blank and used a bit of distress ink to ink around the edges, then with some of the co-ordinating paper I cut a 5.5" square and then cut it in half to produce two triangles and again inked around the edges, these were then placed to the top and bottom corner, I then took a shaped card blank and cut it in half and covered it with another piece of co-ordinating piece of paper and placed it down at an angle then placed the topper and sentiment and finished the card with a bow and some gems.

Hunkydory - Fluttering Pearl

I loved it when hunkydory brought out this kit as it was a first for them to bring out a kit using crafters companion centura pearl card stock, it gives an amazing finish and something different

For this card I covered an 8" card blank with some of the green centura pearl card stock that was an extra with this kit. Then with the matching card stock I matted onto a 7" square bit of gold mirri then place some of the acetate to one side so the other side is free hanging, all of  this was then placed in the centre of the card leaving an even border, I added the topper to the centre of the acetate with a sentiment underneath and finished the card with some balloons and ribbon and a few gems.

Crafters Companion - Love & Romance

I'm always stuck onto how to use velum as I don't like tape on show so I came up with the above idea

Using the all my love paper pad I matted a piece of paper onto a piece of gold mirri card, I took my chosen topper an placed it where I wanted it on the card and drew round it leaving a 1cm border all around and cut the centre out, on my card blank I done the same, I cut the velum to a bit bigger than the aperture and stuck it down on the card blank covering the aperture the stuck the card stock down on top of that. I then put the topper on foam pads and added it to the centre of the aperture.
I finished the card with some roses and gems and ribbon and one of the foiled borders, I think this card turned out well and I now know how I can use my velum.
