Hunkydory Cards

Hello folks. Thanks for stopping by.  I bought a magazine the other day which had some Hunkydory products enclosed.  I hesitate to say "free" products because we are certainly paying for them one way or another.  Anyway I opened the pack last night and here are the first couple of cards I made.

My Cards

The toppers and papers are from the Girly Surprise set. The first one is a 5" x 7" base card cut from my own card. Apart from matting the topper onto silver mirri card, stamping a little label and adding the ribbon everything else was in the pack.

The second card is a 5" x 7" Papermania stepper card and the cardstock is good quality. Again I matted the topper onto silver mirri but the rest was in the pack so very easy and quick.  At this rate my box will fill up nicely.  I am never sure how to take a good picture of these stepper cards so on the last picture I folded down the step to show the main part.

Well that's it for today.  Hope this finds you all well.


  1. Hello Christine these are beautiful, gorgeous images and your designs are just lovely. Beautiful colours too, hugs Kate x

  2. These are totally lovely Christine - I think they are so delicate and I love your designs - especially the stepper card. I also had this kit but am passing it on to my little friend Katie next door, she loves them.

    Hugs to you and I hope John is a little better.

  5. Gorgeous cards Christine. I agree that the inserts with the magazines could not be considered freebies when you look at the prices of the magazines. I stopped buying magazines as there was so little in them.

  6. Hi Christine, these cards are gorgeous, love the designs, your stepper card is fabulous! Carole Z X

  7. Lovely cards Christine. Funny you're doing hunkydory as I have fished out some kits I bought many moons ago when I first started crafting. I'm trying to build up my card stock so I have more to sell. I never used to really know how to put them together but have learnt a trick or two now. Happy crafting.
    Love Lea x

  13. Hi Christine,
    when I came to visit I did have a laugh because, there was your cards made from
    the Hunkydory set, and I have just posted one of mine from the same set.
    Love what you have created with yours. They were such pretty images and papers, and that's what persuaded me to buy the magazine.
    It is lovely to see how different we all create with the same products.
    Hope your and John are keeping well, and the weather isn't too bad where you are.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  14. Hi Christine,
    love what you have done with this H/D set, not used mine as yet have been busy writing a quiz I'm doing for the senior club I go to.

  15. Hi Christina, These are all just as lovely & spring-ish as can be. I just saw another use of the HunkyDory freebies at another blog. Wow, this magazine does have some good stuff! You used your 'freebies' up to make some lovely cards. I liked the flower trimmings you added on them too. Really pretty cards. TFS & Hugs

  16. Gorgeous card Christine. Hazel x

  17. They are both very pretty Christine, I am trying very hard to avoid the magazines and keep reminding myself that I could buy something I really want with that £5 or £10 each month - so trying very hard not to even look at them lol! x

  18. These look fantastic, Christine. I so enjoyed getting those freebies in the magazines when I was in England. What a treat that was.
    We pay around $7.00 and up for a magazone and do not get anything free!

    These are both so very pretty!

  19. Lovely gentle cards made Christine, I think you are right and will be fully prepared. Also agree you need to use what comes with the mags. xx Flora
