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:

Colour Crazy Challenge - Week 24 - All Dressed Up

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

Anything Goes

This week we are sponsored by All Dressed Up Stamps and I couldn't decide which image to use so I've gone for both!  First up is Two Little Mice which I'e coloured with pencils, distressed the papers (found in my stash and it was the perfect size and match with the ribbon!) and added the ribbon from my stash.


And I've used Fairy Magic as well, coloured with Promarkers and a little bit of glitter on her wings and the butterflies.  The papers I found in my stash and were all offcuts so I've had to be creative in how I added them to the card base!  Ribbon and embroidery thread are from my stash.


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

Father's Day Pint

Father's Day is almost upon us in the UK and I've used Pint Glass from Dr Digi (and it's only 50p!) plus one of the sentiments from the Father's Day Sentiment sheet which I've printed onto kraft card before layering it on to black card from my stash.

I've coloured the image with Promarkers plus added a little glossy accents to the bubble.


Button, twine and black half pearls are from my stash and the embossing folder is from LDRS - Picnic Quilt.  I'd like to enter the following:

Daring Cardmakers Challenge - Go Tropical

There is a new challenge starting over on Daring Cardmakers  and the theme for the week is

Go Tropical

I've used some cute dies from Polkadoodles - Winnie Chic for the body, back hair piece and flowers; Winnie Ballerina for the front hair (I snipped a bit off) and also for the base of the dress.  I made the dress using little pieces of raffia ribbon that I snipped and then ruffled up.


The branches are an unbranded die, and the die used to cut the sand is also from Polkadoodles - Scenic Landscape and the Fluffy Clouds too.  Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:

Colour Crazy Challenge - Week 23 - Scrap N Dipity

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

Anything Goes

This week we are sponsored by Scrap N Dipity and I've used this fab image called Fenna:  My New Glasses.  I've coloured her with Promarkers and layered her onto a kraft card blank.  The flowers are from a very old Polkadoodles cd - Sugar Birdies as I found lots of old papers in my stash and these had been printed onto thin card and also vellum so I've layered them up and added a black button to each centre.
