Polkadoodles - Spring Has Sprung New Release!

There is a wonderfully cute new release over at Polkadoodles!  Its called Spring Has Sprung and you can buy all the images in a bundle (which is the best value) here or individually.  The bundle has all 6 images in black and white or pre-coloured!

I've used Special Wishes for this card, using Promarkers to colour, plus adding half pearls to the centre of the flowers and glossy accents over the lettering.  I've used Vintage Candy papers plus embroidery thread and a charm from my stash, pink gems to finish!


Next up is Hello Spring, again coloured with Promarkers.  I embossed a background panel with a Sizzix die and then added blue organza ribbon and pink gems from my stash.


And finally, Just A Note, coloured with Promarkers plus half pearls on the flowers and I glittered the lettering (you just can't tell on the picture!)  I've used the fab Timeless Rose 6x6 paper pack for the backing and cut it using the Squarey Swirly Hearts Die and then embossed a border around the edge of the card.

Daring Card Makers Challenge - Recycled

It's time for a new Daring Card Makers challenge and the theme this week, which has been set by me is

Recycled

I do a lot of recycling, at work and at home and I don't like to throw anything away if I think I can reuse it for a craft project in the future!  So, for this, I've used a vintage map - the kind that came with a magazine in the 1960's and you collected a different part each week or month.

I made this gift bag with gusseted sides and twine handles.  The tag was made with an offcut, layered onto kraft card with a kraft star (X cut die) and a wooden car shape added.


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

Colour Crazy Challenge - Week 12 - Polkadoodles

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

Anything Goes

This week we are sponsored by Polkadoodles and I've used the cute Earlie Hedgehog Dandelion digi, coloured with Promarkers and liquid pearls.  I've kept the card really clean and simple, cutting the image with a circles die and added a scalloped border with punched hearts.  I've printed the sentiment on my computer and added die cut butterflies in pink card and vellum.

Crimbo Crackers Challenge 207 - Animals sponsored by Knitty Kitty

It's time for a new Crimbo Crackers challenge and the theme is

Animals

This fortnight the challenge is sponsored by Knitty Kitty Digis and I've used Knitted Kitty and coloured him up with Promarkers.  I've used a frame die cut plus a vellum circle to layer the kitty on plus a really old 6x6 sheet from my stash - Trimcraft The Christmas Multi Stack (not got many sheets left!) which I've probably had for over 10 years!


Sentiment has been cut with a Sizzix die and I've doodled a running stitch around the edge of the card with a black fine liner pen.  Good luck with the challenge!

Quick Pint

Quick pint card using Pint Glass from Dr Digi - its much cheaper than a real pint at just 50p!  I used a circle die to cut the card base then folded it in half and then added X Cut star die cuts from other bits of kraft card.  I coloured the image with Promarkers and found a Docrafts bottle top in my stash that I've had longer than I should have.


A nice and quick male card!

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

I've used another fab image by From The Heart Stamps which is sadly no longer available and coloured it with Promarkers.  I found some printed papers in my stash to layer the image on - Hills of Heather from Funky Hand (also no longer trading).  I printed the tag on my computer and layered it with the same papers.


I embossed a line around the edge of the card and added some half pearls.  Good luck with the challenge!
