Paradise Jewels

Hi everyone, today sees another  beautiful Hunkydory collection launch on Create and Craft TV and yet again I had the pleasure of making some DT cards.

My parcel arrived on Saturday and contained not just the main Paradise Jewels Card Collection, but also the Little Book, A4 Paper Pad, inserts and a pack of Adorable Scorable card in beautiful matching colours. It was like Christmas Day for me! Needless to say, it wasn't difficult to come up with ideas.

I really love the A4 paper pad and so used the papers to make a gift bag:

This was so easy to make and decorated simply with toppers from the main collection.

This card uses an image from the Little Book, the Paper Pad and some Adorable Scorable:

I embossed the card with a Crafter's Companion embossing folder and used Rainbow Mirri Card for a pretty finish.

My final card for today uses another page from the Little Book.:

I created the background for this one by blending 3 Distress Inks: Cracked Pistachio, Tumbled Glass and Scattered Straw, which reflect the colours in the background of the image. I do enjoy using these Little Books, they are so very versatile.

I hope you can catch some of Ruth's shows today, there are sure to be some amazing demos. Thank you for taking the time to visit today x
