ABC Challenges - P is for Pearls

Hi I'm back with a new ABC Challenge and this one is P is for Pearls. This challenge is sponsored by Polkadoodles and today I've used a pre-coloured digital image from the beautiful Meribelle collection - Meribelle Swimming Around for my card. Here is my card:



I printed my image and background paper on White cardstock. I used an oval die to cut an oval around the image. I then used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the slightly bigger oval, the fancy white frame, the patterned paper and the backing card. Last step was to assemble the layers and add some white pearls around the edge.

Until next time, happy crafting...

Supplies:

Meribelle Swimming Around -  Polkadoodles
Digital paper from Winnie Starfish and Sandcastles download collection - Polkadoodles

Polkadoodles challenge - Oh I do like to be beside the sea side

Hi everyone and welcome to another brand new Polkadoodles Challenge All our challenges are

Anything Goes

while for an added challenge the DT's areusing a theme of "Oh I do like to be beside the sea side" to our makes.


For my inspiration make this week I have used the beautiful Winnie Starfish and Sandcastles download collection. Such a fabulous set of images, papers, embellishments, sayings, cut files, oh the list just goes on and on.
Anyway for my card, I used a background paper and layered it onto some golden yellow card. I then used my Silhouette Cameo to print and cut the lovely precoloured Building Sandcastles digi with a fancy doily border. I also print and cut out the sandcastle, bucket and spade and the shells - they are all from the collection too. To finish the card, I added the sentiment to a sun shape and cut it out. Then added all my cut outs to make the card.


Here is my card:

Polkadoodles challenge - F is for...

Hi everyone and welcome to another brand new Polkadoodles Challenge. All our challenges are

Anything Goes

while for an added challenge the DT's are adding something starting with F to our makes.


For my make, I decided to make a card with flowers in the background and I couldn't go past the lovely papers from the Winnie in Wonderland collection. Now if you don't want the whole collection, you can just buy the background papers in sets - the papers I chose are from Winnie Wonderland Paper Heaven 6. I printed my background on bright white paper using my Canon inkjet Pixma printer - one thing I love about these papers is how bright the colours are and how much detail is in the background - they are so pretty. I layered the paper onto some green card and then onto a larger white card that I punched a fancy edge on using an around the page punch set.

I then printed one of my favourite fairy - Serenity Princess and coloured her in with my copics. The colours I used are: E0000, E000, E00, E11, R20, C00, C1, C3, Y28, Y23, Y21, G20, G0000, YG00, RV14, RV34, R21, RV0000, E57. E55, E53, E51.

To finish off my card, I added a triple bow and a white rose, and some little pearls to the fairy crown.

Here is my card:

And stop press - quick go and check out the Polkadoodles challenge blog for a special offer - but you must do it before midnight on Friday night (UK time)

Polkadoodles challenge - Add Texture

Hi everyone and welcome to another brand new Polkadoodles Challenge. All our challenges are


Anything Goes

while for an added challenge the DT's are adding texture to our creations.


I have had another really busy week with work this week and I need to take a thank you gift to a friend who helped me out. I decided a pretty gift box with their favourite chocolates would be a fun gift. I also used a star shape, because they were a shining star in my week.


Here it is:


I started with some plain pale pink card and cut out the stars. Then I embossed one star using an starburst embossing folder. By cutting some strips and scoring and folding them before gluing them around the edge of the stars, I made a top and bottom for the box.


I wrapped some lace around the edge and added a cute topper from the Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Springtime Collection, along with some paper flowers and a button from the Winston Deluxe collection.

Here you can see the inside:



And one more look:



Happy stamping until next time...

Polkadoodles challenge - Anything Goes

Hi everyone and welcome to another brand new Polkadoodles Challenge. Our theme for this challenge is 

Anything Goes


For my DT inspiration this week, I decided make a special chocolate sliding gift box. 

Here it is:

All the papers in my project came from the Winnie Fruit Punch Big Bundle
To make the flowers, I stamped the flowers, leaves and a sentiment from Daisydays SME in dark brown ink onto some of the patterned paper and then fussy cut them out. I then added a clear crystal button as the centre of each flower.
I used oval punches to make the gift tag, and then added a topper from the Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Springtime Collection.

When you pull up the bow, your special sweet treat slides out.



Happy stamping until next time...
