New Challenge at Polkadoodles Crafting - Ruby Sweet

Good morning everyone,

Well here we are again it's Friday already, wow this week has flown by.

We have a new challenge at Polkadoodles Crafting today. The theme as always is 'Anything Goes', however the DT were asked to include a number on their designs.

I decided to go for a vintage theme. I chose to colour up another gorgeous Ruby, have you seen the new ones in the shop? (you can find them here, you can buy them as a bundle, pre-coloured or black and white and you can also buy them in singles, I LOVE them, so watch this space. 

This little cutie is called 'Ruby Sweet' and I've coloured her with DI reinkers. Once she was printed I placed the largest of the Polkadoodles elegant nest dies over the top and cut with my die cutting machine.

I used an oval die to cut the shape of the card. The papers are from the Lil Miss Sugar Pops, Paper heaven 2 set. I've have used the yellowy coloured ones this time.

The rest of the die cuts  have been cut in brown card and I've added some vintage white frantage around the edges.

I made the vintage flower by cutting the largest and second largest dies from the flowers 2 set in brown card, I then embossed it with a polka dot embossing folder. To finish off I added some gold gilding wax and added some gold and ivory stamens to the centre.

I found the numbers in my stash, they started off as black, and you can see how they turned out once I embossed them and  added the gold gilding wax.

Where possible I have added the links to the materials I have used at the bottom of this post, just click on a picture to be taken directly to the product.

The ribbon, lace (bow) pearl and diamante embellishment, rose and beaded stamens are from the Ribbon Girl.

Some Exciting News!

Hi everyone,

Yay it's Friday, I hope you have had a good week.

Well I have some very exciting news to share with you. As you know I have been guest designing for Polkadoodles for a couple of weeks which I loved, but then I was contacted by Nikky to ask me join the team full time, wahoo, I am so excited and it only took a nano second to respond, so thank you Nikky for inviting me to be part of this awesome team.

So this is my first DT card. As always the challenge is 'Anything Goes' but the DT are always tasked with a theme. This time the team had to used pastel colours, well you know I love pastel colours so it wasn't a difficult one for me.

This gorgeous girl is called 'Surprise Gift Winnie' and I have coloured her with DI reinkers, but if colouring isn't your thing or you need to make a quick card, you can also buy her pre-coloured. (I have put links to both at the bottom of my post).
