LDRS Creative –Saying Thank You!


Hello everyone! Hope all is good with you!

I am posting on the LDRS CREATIVE INSPIRATION BLOG today sharing a little ‘Thank You’ card.


Now I do love colour and I also love to make my own backgrounds so out came some watercolour card, my pigment powders and a water spray.



Once the panel was dry I used a die-cut to create a stencil and coloured through it onto the panel with gold gilding wax. 


I stamped all over with different tiny stamps and then made my topper using the fabulous heart balloon cluster from CLOUD NO. 9; colouring it to match my background. 


Ingredients:
LDRS PRODUCTS
Ink: RAVEN HYBRID INK

THE REST  
Background: Watercolour Card with Nuvo Shimmer Powders
Colouring: Watercolour Brush Pens
Colouring Paper: Watercolour
Others: Nuvo Glitter Drops – Glitter Gems

Hunkydory Crafts Product Review – Part 1!

Hello, how’s it going?


Well I was asked a little while ago if I would be happy to review some products from Hunkydory Crafts and as I am a not a silly person (well not ALL the time) I said yes!


These are the products I received:


Now I know Hunkydory are famous for their quality card and toppers but I didn’t want to go down that road so looked to the other things that they have to offer and to be honest I was spoilt for choice.

I have named this post Part 1 as I have only used some of my goodies for this project but I will be back with Part 2 and use the rest.



So my first project is a card for my mum’s birthday and I used all three of the PRISM INKPADS to colour up one of the card blanks in the DIMENSIONAL CARD KIT. Now the inks are dye-based, lovely and juicy, gorgeous colours and blend very well with the BLENDING TOOL, and when I had finished I splashed the card with water to create texture.

So I have to say that I was rather disappointed with the DIMENSIONAL CARD KIT. The quality of the card is good but it only has a single fold. I was expecting it to be a tri-fold card so you would have something to bend back behind the aperture to hide and contain your work, but there isn’t. Bit of a flaw in the design I think.  It would make a very interesting shaker card though! LOL


Anyway, I used the luscious inks to also stamp out the three layers of a build-a-flower stamp from LDRS Creative, then cut them out and added them to a die-cut oval that I had inked with the lightest colour DUSKY ROSE. I placed my topper onto the arch card shape that had come out of the aperture that I had inked as before.  I then secured it with a piece of card covering the back.

Overall I really loved using these products. Hunkydory are famous for their quality and that's what you get.  I can certainly see myself buying more of their beautiful Prism inks.

Other Ingredients:
Others: Ribbon - Nuvo Drops - White Gel Pen

So pop over to the HUNKYDORY CRAFTS STORE and check the amazing variety of goodies on offer

Thanks so much for looking and taking the time to comment; I really do appreciate it! Have a great day!


See ya!
