Fading Beauty

Hi, it's Sammylou here and I'm happy to be sharing a make I made today using the Fading Beauty download.
This is a sumptuous download just perfect for the last days of sunshine before Autumn begins.
My card was made using a svg file from SVG Cuts and I think it showcases the papers beautifully.

I added some card candy and a 60 peel off and the card was ready to be given to a colleague at work. To say she was overjoyed was an understatement!
We would love to see any cards you've made with the download and you can show us on the facebook page or come and join the group for lots of friendly chat and a place to share your Funky Hand makes. Please pop on over and share the Funky Hand love with us.
Make the most of the remaining sunshine and I'll see you all soon, Sammylou xXx

Hello all!

Anice here. I headed into the stockroom yesterday and started a 'good old' clean out!  While I was in there I decided to have a Flash Sale.  So, all the Funky Hand CD ROMs that are available on the Funky Hand website are, for a short time, just £1.00 each.

All the CDs are included Papercraft Factory and the Original CDs.  If you have any gaps in your Funky Hand CD collection then now is the time to fill them. 

There are only a few copies allocated to the sale for each CD, some more than others depending on the stock numbers..so when those allocated copies have gone..they are gone!

See you over on the website

Forgotten Funkies...Steam Funk...

Good Morning everyone!!!
Its the time of month again for our 'Forgotten Funkies showcase!!! and each month our fabulous Funkettes will be here on our blog showing off some new makes with our older downloads. 

Today's showcase is centred all around the gorgeously funky and zingy 'Steam Funk' download. Just look at these delectably grungy papers, 17 of them and 4 digi stamps (2 of them sentiments)  in delicious browns and creams with the most awesome text papers we have seen for a while!! So they are most definitely too good to be forgotten!!!

So that's enough of my wafflies - you want to see what our 
gorgeous girls have come up with don't you?
ok, ok here they are.......

Steam Funk downloadable backing papers.

Also used the "Bot-fire away" digi stamp.

Making the most of your digital stamps..

Hi everyone, Anice here for my turn to share some pearls of wisdom from Funky Hand Land!  Well, wisdom might be a bit of an overstatement.. lets get on to the blog post eh?!!

I have heard quite a few times from crafters about buying digital stamps or even regular stamps that once they have used them a couple of times they don't use them again because all their toppers look the same if they do.  I got thinking about this and thought I'd share an idea I had for an image that I drew recently for on my friends birthday card.

Here is the image, it's not a digital stamp yet, maybe I'll release it..what do you think?

So, here is the image coloured for on my friends card. All pretty and pastel and happy.

Here it is on her card..

Then I went about using the same image in a completely different way..

Now, I'm no amazing colourer so this is just to give you an idea but this time I coloured it as if it was night and the street lamp was just lighting up a bit of the street.  Add a different sentiment and the same image can go onto a very different card. Maybe to a friend or family member who is having a tough time.

So, don't think that once you have coloured a new stamp or digital stamp a couple of times it is ready to be put at the back of the drawer or archived on you PC drive.  Take a look at it and try to think of different ways you could colour it and mount it to give it a completely different use.

I hope that this post has got you thinking differently about your images.  Let me know what you think in the comments.  Also let us know what sort of posts you would like to see on the Get Funky Blog it would be great to hear your ideas.

Until next time

Marleen DT - Georgie Love Banner.

Hi guys..

Its my turn to share some inspiration

For this month I have had a play with "Georgie Love Banner" digi stamp and the
"I heart you" digital papers.

This card is very simply. I covered my card blank with a sheet form the "I heart you" papers. Then die cut my house and added on top. I Printed my greeting, also form the "I heart you" collection, as well as my "Georgie love banner" image, whick I coloured with promarkers.
Borh added to my card with a spot of pinflair. Last I added the bow, and voila.. Done..

A very simple card, but I think it came out really well.
And that is all from me for this time.
Thank you for stopping by and for any comments left behind.

A little bit of Minty Madness


It's Debbie here with a card I put together yesterday. With some of my left over  papers from the Funkyhand Minty-Madness paper download as well as 1 sheet printed out.
You know I like to use my scraps up. This paper download is on offer at £1 at the moment as well as many others so don't miss out and check out the rest of the gorgeous digital papers and digital stamps over at Funkyhand.

I wanted to put my dies to full use and my diddy little butterfly punch. This was great fun to make. 
So why don't you get out your lovely papers - Funkyhand of course!!!! and have some fun.
I don't always have a plan to work from - it's very rare actually and let your creativity loose.

We'd love you to share your Funkyhand makes with us either by leaving us a link to your blog in the comments or on our Facebook page.
