Daring Cardmakers Challenge - Wonderful World

New Daring Cardmakers challenge!  And this week the theme is

Wonderful World

Kathy has chosen the lyrics from Louis Armstrong's A Wonderful World for inspiration and I've made this funky card using a no longer available sentiment from Jellypark.  I printed it directly onto the cardstock and cut round it, adding glitter to the stars and then making the banner with an X Cut star die cuts attached to two BBQ sticks.

Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:

Colour Crazy Challenge - Week 25 - Blog Candy

It's time for a new Colour Crazy challenge and the theme, as always is

Anything Goes

This week we don't have a sponsor for the challenge but there is some blog candy on offer for the lucky winner!

I've used a no longer available Kenny K image, coloured with Promarkers and then added to the large numbers which are my own templates, using papers from Dovecraft - Back to Basics 3 which I've had to paper piece together as the stack was only 6x6.

I've added liquid pearl dots around the edges of the numbers and also on the banners plus half pearls here and there.  Sentiment has been cut with Clearly Besotted dies.  Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:

Bear Frame

And some more Polkadoodles loveliness from the recent Hochanda show!  This is the Beary Cute Great Outdoors Die and all the papers used are from the Great Outdoors paper pack.  The letters have been cut with a Sizzix die and the frame made with the Fabulous Mitred Frames die set.  The background is a paper from The Great Outdoors pad and I've added some waxed cord from my stash to make the frame hanger.

Crimbo Crackers Challenge 161 - Anything Goes

Time for a new Crimbo Crackers challenge and the theme, as always is

Anything Goes

This week, I'm sponsored by Dr Digi and the prize is two single images of the winners choice from the store.  I've used Snowman (who won't break the bank at just 50p!) and coloured it up with Promarkers.  Papers are random offcuts I found in my stash and the ribbon, half pearls and wooden snowflake are also all from my stash.

Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:

Little Miss Muffet Challenge - 191 - Inspiration

We are half way through the current Little Miss Muffet challenge and the theme as always is

Anything Goes

For inspiration, I've used Polka Dot Pals Morgan and coloured her up with Promarkers and to represent one of my local U7s girls teams (who are actually very good!)

The papers are from a now retired Polkadoodles download and they were offcuts from a previous project and I had to be clever as to how to get them to fit on the card base - so there are gaps underneath that you can't see!

Sentiment is a magazine freebie stamp and black card is from my stash.  Good luck with the challenge!

Nuts About You

A little bit more cute from the recent Polkadoodles Hochanda show!  This time I've used the Nuts About You Woodland Fox stamp set - I've used the little squirrel as the focus and also the acorns plus one of the sentiment stamps.  I've stamped the acorns a number of times, coloured them and then cut them out to layer.

The waxed cord is from my stash and I've doodled a line around the edge of the card with a fineliner pen.

Woof You!

Polkadoodles is back on Hochanda with some wonderful animal themed dies, stamps and co-ordinating papers!  I've used Woof You stamp, coloured with promarkers and then used papers from The Great Outdoors plus one of the block colours from the skin and fur bumper pack of papers.

You can just see a little bit of the cute paw print ribbon too.  There are 6 different character stamp sets and also matching cute dies!

The Great Outdoors

This is the Father's Day card I made my Dad - using The Great Outdoors image from Dr Digi which I've coloured with Promarkers and coloured pencils.  Papers are from a rather paper pad that I bought years ago in the sale from Papermania - Secret Garden 6x6 papers and because they weren't big enough for the card blank, I've had to arrange them in a random pattern after I'd cut them into 4.

Sentiment is also from Dr Digi - Father's Day Sentiments and I printed it onto kraft card.  Base of chocolate brown card is from my stash along with the two charms and the waxed brown cord.

Daring Card Makers - Anything But White

It's time for a new Daring Card Makers challenge and the theme this week is:

Anything But White

Now I do like using kraft card and I've used this sentiment from Tiddly Inks which I think is now retired as I can't find it in the store.  I've printed it three times onto some kraft card and then layered it onto black and then onto the card blank.

I've added ribbon from my stash and some tiny punched stars.  Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:

Polkadoodle Challenge - Anything Goes or Not Square or Round

Time for a new Polkadoodle challenge and the theme as always is

Anything Goes

The DT were challenge to make something that was not square or round so I've made this cute birthday card for a little boy who will be turning two in a few months.   I've used Dragon Onesie from Little Dudes and teamed it with papers from Sticks and Bones.

The letters are my own template and I've cut them out of card and then layered the papers on top, and then layered those onto the pages with foam pads for extra depth.

Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:
