Hunkydory Prism Pens

Image
Today I'm sharing some of the images I coloured using the new Hunkydory Prism alcohol pens. The images are from the brand new Hunkydory Prism Colouring Pads.









This final image is featured in the new Hunkydory Prism alcohol pens handbook. There are all the colours of pens used listed in the book so that you can recreate this coloured image if you want to.

Especially For You

Image
Did you catch the launch of the new Hunkydory Prism alcohol pens yesterday? I was lucky enough to have some of my work published in the Prism alcohol pens handbook, including my flamingoes coloured image that was on the cover! Very exciting!!
Today I'm sharing the last of my samples made for the recent Hunkydory Blossoming Blues collection.




I created a fold back card, and have used the stamps from the collection as well as some of the papers. I stamped the roses directly onto one of the patterned papers and the leaves were stamped onto white card and coloured in using a green Hunkydory Prism ink pad.

Do More Of What Makes You Happy

Today I'm sharing another of my cards made using the new Hunkydory Blossoming Blues Collection.





I have heat embossed some of the stamps onto the patterned paper, using silver embossing powder to mimic the silver foiling in the collection. I've also used some of the foiled cardstock, tags, sentiments and embellishments from the kit. I added in some of the silver brushed mirri cardstock and some Hunkydory diamond sparkles silver metallic gemstones.

Hunkydory Blossoming Blues Stamps

Image
Today I'm sharing some more of my samples made using the Hunkydory Blossoming Blues collection. These cards feature the Blossoming Blues stamp set, as well as some other elements from the collection.




I used one of the inserts from the collection as my background to stamp the roses onto. I masked the roses out so that it looks like one big corner stamp (when in fact it is several different rose stamps). I coloured the images in using Hunkydory Prism inks and a waterbrush. I used the alphabet stamps to create the sentiment, and inked the edges of the piece. The butterflies are also stamps from the set.

For this card, I have stamped the rose cluster twice onto white card and twice onto one of the double sided papers (the same peachy coloured one used in the background). I coloured the leaves in on the white pieces and added some shading to the flowers on …

Hunkydory Blossoming Blues

Image
Today I've got a few more of my samples to share using the new Hunkydory Blossoming Blues collection.




For this card, I've used loads of different elements from across the whole collection. I used some of the parchment over the top of one of the papers to create the background. The topper has been built up using one of the tags and a sentiment.

Cute Card Thursday #543 spots and dots






As soon as I saw the die-cut letters, I knew I wanted to create some bunting. The base triangular shapes were cut from the matching Matt-Tastic Adorable Scorable card. I gave each letter a silver foiled drop shadow (all of the letters are part of the luxury card collection). I also used the Blossoming Blues stamp set to stamp out 2 of the butterflies and 2 of the bows and added these to the bottom of the bunting. I attached the bunting to some striped twine.

Hunkydory Blossoming Blues

Image
Today I'm sharing one of my samples made using the new Hunydory Blossoming Blues collection that launched yesterday on Create and Craft TV. This is a stunning collection, so soft and pretty, and I had loads of fun working with it.




I created an easel card for this one. I've used some of the foiled cardstock, the papers, the tags, the sentiments, the embellishments and some of the new Hunkydory silver brushed mirri card. I've also used the new Moonstone alphabet dies to cut out the name (I just went with my own name on this card as the letters fitted nicely on the panel!) I've drop shadowed the letters with some of the silver mirri. I added a few Hunkydory diamond sparkles silver metallic gemstones to finish as they work so well with the silver foiling.

More For The Love Of Stamps Christmas

Image
Today I'm sharing the last of my samples made for the recent For The Love Of Stamps Christmas launch.




This card is made using the Carolling Cuties stamp set and co-ordinating mask. I have watercoloured the images using the Hunkydory Prism inks. I used a black ballpoint pen to draw the musical notes through the mask.

This card has been made using the Silly Snowmen stamp set, co-ordinating mask and one of the free papers from issue 11 of the For The Love Of Stamps magazine. I cut round the snowflake frame from the mask and created an aperture to make a shaker card. I've added flower soft and glitter to the centre and used Hunkydory snowfall acetate. Again, I've coloured the snowman using the Prism inks.

Today I'm sharing a few more of my samples made for the latest For The Love Of Stamps launch.




This card uses the Nutcracker Kisses stamp set and mask. I have coloured the images in using a combination of the Hunkydory Prism pearlescent powders and the Prism ink pads (by painting with the mediums using a brush and water).

This card actually uses the Santa Claus stamp set, but I chose to use only the small holly embellishment stamp (as well as a sentiment) from the set, instead of the main Santa Claus image. I have coloured the holly in by watercolouring with the Prism ink pads.

I have used the Nativity stamp set and masks to create this shaped diorama style card. Again I have used the Prism ink pads to colour with, as well as to ink through the mask.

Christmas Rose Lantern

Image
Today I'm sharing 2 cards that have both been made using the For The Love Of Stamps Christmas Rose Lantern stamp set. This set has to be one of my favourites from the whole release - I so love the lantern stamp, but the flowers themselves are also stunning and great for building up corsages on cards.




I've also used the co-ordinating masks on this card. I have coloured the stamped images in using a combination of Hunkydory Prism pearlescent powders and Prism inks. The red "ribbon" has been created by painting the red pearlescent powder onto white card (it's actually very sparkly in real life!).

On this card, I have used the Hunkydory masking sheets to create the effect that the flowers are overlapping each other. I have once again coloured the images in using Prism ink pads and a brush with water. I will be entering this card into the following challenge:

Just to let you know that I am selling my Gemini Die-Cutting and Embossing machine if any of you are interested in purchasing it (or know anybody that might be). It can be found here for sale on ebay: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Gemini-Die-Cutting-Machine-with-Metal-Cutting-Plate-and-Rubber-Embossing-Mat/113196178634


Onto the cards I'm sharing - today it's 2 different cards (both fold-back cards - I'm loving making these at the moment!) made using the new For The Love Of Stamps Furry and Bright stamp set.



I created the backing papers using the Hunkydory Prism pearlescent powders, adding the powders to some damp Hunkydory white ink me! card and moving them around with a brush until I was happy with the effect. I have coloured the stamped image in using the Prism ink pads and the pearlescent powders, using a brush and water to paint with.

Let It Snow

Image
I've got another of my For The Love Of Stamps Christmas launch samples to share today. This card isn't my usual style but I had great fun making it and am pretty pleased with how it turned out!








For this card, I have used the Sparkling Snowflakes stamp set and mask with the Hunkydory Prism inks. I created the "snow" sentiment by inking through the mask, then stamping through the mask multiple times (over the top of the inked letters) using one of the smaller dotty stamps from the set. The "let it" sentiment is part of a "let it snow" stamp in the set, and I've just masked out the "snow" part. I've added some Tonic Studios Nuvo white crystal drops to finish.

O Christmas Tree

Today I'm sharing another of my For The Love Of Stamps Christmas launch samples.




I have used the Sound Of Christmas stamp set and co-ordinating mask for this one. I stamped and inked through the mask using Hunkydory Prism inks. The only cardstock used is Hunkydory white ink me! card and a Hunkydory white 5"x5" ink me! card blank.

Well I've had another busy weekend of crafting...I'm working on some samples for another gorgeous launch that's coming up in the next few weeks and I also had a great time at Phill Martin's Craftathon on Sunday. It was great fun - we made 2 cards with Julia Watts and 2 cards with Phill and I got to try out a few new techniques (I need those Cosmic Shimmer shimmer shakers now!) Thanks for stopping by today - have a great week!

For The Love Of Stamps Christmas Launch

Image
Today is the launch day for the new For The Love Of Stamps Christmas stamps! Did you catch the launch show at 9am (UK time) on Create and Craft TV? Pauline is back at 3pm showcasing these gorgeous new stamps so be sure to tune in!




This card is a stepper card, and it was actually the first time I made a card in this style! I have used the Carolling Cuties stamp set and mask. I used the Hunkydory Prism inks with the blending tool and mask to create the background and also used a waterbrush with the inks to colour the stamped images in. I cut the stamped images out by hand. I used Hunkydory masking sheets to mask out the lamp post and Christmas tree in the background to give depth. The only card used here is the Hunkydory white ink me! card.
