May Inspiration, DT Marleen

Hi everyone..

Its my turn to share some inspiration here on the blog.

For this card Ive used the papers called "Salt & Pepper"
As well as the butterfly stamp called "Flutterby Flowers"

Here is what I have made:

The butterflies comes in 4 so I simply printed the sheet with them on and cut them out.
then coloured them in with Distress Inks and covered with clear embossing powder (2 coats)

I added the backing paper and stiched by hand round the edges. The 2 scallops comes in the "salt & pepper" paper pack so I simply cut both out. I used a birthday stamp from my stach to stamp the sentiment. Stamped with versamark and covered with white embossing powder.

For all your Funky Hand needs, DO pop to the STORE.. There are so many amazing papers and fantastic digi stamps..

And that is it from me for today..
Thank you for stopping by and for any comments left behind.

Full of beans.......

Hi everyone!!!

I checked with Da Boss because I wanted to share one of the fabulous new releases coming up soon.

This on is another fabby coffee cup to add to the I'm a mug for you coffee cup digital stamps over on the shop. I love theses cups! they are just fab. I made the base for this card with my silhouette software and then coloured the stamp up with my promarkers.

The DT have had their hands on these for a long time now but you will have to wait just a squeeeeeze longer...but hey..if you beg Anice enough they might come quicker :) :)

Butterflies and Flowers

Hello, it's Kathy here with this week's weekend inspiration spot
have you checked out the latest downloads in the Funky Hand Shop?
Among the newest goodies you will find a gorgeous paper collection called "Fading Beauty",  I'd like to share a couple of cards I've made using these beautiful papers.  For both cards I've printed my chosen patterns onto textured white Bazzill card - if you click on the images you'll get a closer look and will be able to see how well a little texture works with the designs
All papers "Fading Beauty" download collection from Funky Hand
EK Success border punch
DieNamics Oval Doily
Spellbinders Butterfly 
Spellbinders leaf swirl

All papers "Fading Beauty" download collection from Funky Hand
Spellbionders Labels 26 (I think)
 DieNamics Flourish
Flower petals cut on Silhouette
Green and Pink Pearls
WRMK Corner Chomper
Printed Greeting

What I love about this collection is how completely timeless it is and how easy it is to pull together a pretty card with these papers and a few die cuts.  If you look closely at these cards you'll realise how simple they are - apart from the pearls on the second one there are no fiddly "extras" - just the gorgeous papers some die cuts, punchies and a few blobs of dimensional glue. TaDah!

I just know already that it's a set I already know I'll return to again and again because the designs are so lovely and work so brilliantly together.  
At only £2.99 it's a bargain too!

here's a little peek at the full paper set to tempt you even more
If you scroll through the last few posts on here you'll find more of the DT's projects made with these papers - and you can check out a whole gallery of

Fading Beauty Gift Bag

Anice has come up trumps again with this wonderful digi paper download - Fading Beauty! With wonderful faded pinks, greens and a touch of chocolate its a collection you'll be using a lot! I've made a cute gift bag from one sheet of A4 card which has been scored and folded to create the bag.

I've used a Sizzix flower die and then cut it into four to create the petals; I then dabbed them with a damp cloth, scrunched them and left to dry before assembling. The leaves were handcut with the veins added and then scrunched up a little.

Ribbon, brads and clear gems are all from my stash. Some faux stitching and its complete!

Look out for more creations made with this fab download from the rest of the team!

A little bit more Sepia

Morning crafters,

It's Debbie here with my share of funkiness for this month.So what do you think of our Memories in Sepia paper download that was recently released.It is one of my favourites. The papers are just so beautiful.

Here's a card I made using: this paper download, my dies, some wooden buttons and bakers twine.
This was my favourite of the 3 cards I made using the download. You also don't need to have cutting dies, simple matting and layering can produce a lovely card.

Why not make something to share with us either below with a link to your blog or a pic on our Facebook page.It can be using this download or any Funkyhand product.

Thanks for popping by.

Hugs Debbie x
