New Challenge at Polkadoodles Crafting

Good morning everyone,

Happy Friday to you all, I hope you have had a good week. Phil and I are off to spend a few days in Cornwall on Sunday, which I am really looking forward to.

Today we begin a new challenge at Polkadoodles Crafting. As always it's an 'Anything Goes' theme for lovely crafters, but the team were asked to make a project with a 'Just Saying Hello' theme.

For a change I have made a tent style card and have coloured up 'Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Hello'. She is actually peeping from behind a door, but at the time of requesting her for my creation, I hadn't thought about placing her behind a window, I don't think it really matters though.

I have coloured her using distress ink reinkers.

The papers are from the Work and Play 10 collection and the sentiment is from Winnie Celebrations Kit 2.

Links to the materials I have used are at the bottom of this post. Just click on a picture to be taken directly to the product. 

All the embellishments are from my stash.

New challenge at Creative Inspirations

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all well and having a wonderful summer. Well we can't complain here in the south of  U.K. as the weather has been pretty good to us this summer. Although parts of our country are really suffering so my heart goes out to the people it is affecting.

Anyway on with my post for today. We have a new challenge at Creative Inspirations and this month we would like to see 'Something Seasonal'.  So whether you want to stick to a Summer theme, indulge in Autumnal colours and leaves or make a start on Christmas cards it is completely up to you.

I chose to make a Christmas card, just to start getting ahead and they are also my favourite cards to make.

I have coloured up Show the Way Tilda and masked her with the Show the Way sign.You can just about make out a moon in the background which is just a mask which I stuck on and painted around it. I have used distress inks to paint the scene.

The poinsettia is a new die by John Next Door, and I love it. I have sprinkled on some Twinklets Diamond Dust which gives them a lovely sparkle.

DI list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick
Hair and Sign: Gathered Twigs, Walnut Stain, Black Soot
Coat, Hat and Boots: Victorian Velvet

Natalie has put together a beautiful selection of craft goodies for this months prize:

Thank you for popping in.

Take care.

New Release from Dreamerland Crafts

Good morning everyone,

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

Today I am sharing a card I made using another of the new releases from Dreamerland Crafts.

This stamp is so cute and is called 'Til We Meet Again' awww. 

I have coloured up the image with distress reinkers. To create the polka dots on her dress I dotted on some Pebeo drawing gum, and left it to dry before colouring. Once you have finished colouring you just rub it away.

The die at the top and bottom of the card is a Joy Crafts die and the flowers, pearl string, ribbon and lace are from my crafty stash.

The gorgeous buzzy bee embellishment was a gift from a crafty friend.

DI list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick
Hair: Gathered Twigs, Walnut Stain, Black Soot
Dress: Victorian Velvet
Hat: Gathered Twigs, Victorian Velvet
Bear: Brushed Corduroy, Gathered Twigs, Antique Linen, Worn Lipstick
Grass: Forest Moss, Shabby Shutters
