New Challenge at Ally's Angels

Hello my lovelies,

I hope you are all well.

This evening a new 'Anything Goes' challenge begins at Ally's Angels.

For my card this month, I have made a shaker card. I chose to colour up Tilda with Hellebores and have coloured her with distress reinkers.

The pretty frame is a Sue Wilson die which I embossed with a polka dot embossing folder and I've added some iridescent sequins for the shaker element. The pretty border die above it is a Joy Crafts die.

All the embellishments are from my crafty stash.

DI list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick
Hair: Walnut Stain, Walnut Stain
Dress and Shoes: Gathered Twigs, Black Soot
Hellebore Flowers: Victorian Velvet, Forest Moss, Shabby Shutters

Ally is offering the fabulous stamp and die set below to the lucky winner:

New Challenge at Polkadoodles Crafting

Good morning everyone,

WOW it's Friday already, this week has flown by, but Happy Friday to you all.

We have a new challenge beginning at Polkadoodles Crafting today. For all you lovely crafters, it's an 'Anything Goes' challenge, but the team were given the challenge of 'Thinking of You'.

I made another tent card, just in case you were getting bored with easel cards lol. 

I chose to colour up the very sweet 'Pocketfuls of Love' image which I have painted with distress reinkers (the colours I used are listed below the second pic). I love blue and brown together, I think they compliment each other well.  She is available as a black and white image or if colouring is not your thing or you just need to make a quick card then she is also available pre-coloured. 

The scrumptious papers are from a collection called Nikky Digital Stamp Download, you also receive a free image with this collection. 


Behind the image is a hidden tag. I printed the 'Thinking of You' sentiment  which is a freebie from the store and used a circle die to cut it out.

DI list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick
Hair: Walnut Stain, Antique Linen
Dress: Gathered Twigs, Black Soot
Hearts: Weathered Wood
Eyes: Stormy Sky
Tights: Weathered Wood, Antique Linen

New 'Anything Goes' Challenge at Polkadoodles Crafting

Hi everyone,

I hope you have all had a good week. I am currently away spending time with my parents, but will be home very soon.

Today, we have a new 'Anything Goes' challenge at Polkadoodles Crafting. The team were set a challenge of  making a small gift for under £5.00.

I don't normally have time to make anything other than a card, but as it is the summer holidays, I created a small set of Christmas cards and tags from the Winnie White Christmas Big Kahunda collection.

The lace and ribbon were left over from previous projects. The flower was printed out from the foliage section.


This time I didn't colour up  the images although I wanted to, but it would have taken too long so opted to print out some of the  pre-coloured images.

For the cards I printed of some backing papers and an image of my choice, added some glitter to the image, painted some white gesso around the edges of the papers and images and glued them in place.

For the tags I printed out a coordinating Winnie from the pre-coloured images, some foliage from the foliage section and used some of the left over paper from the cards to cover the tags.



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. Where possible I have also included as many of the separate digis as well as the Big Kahunda.

Nikky is offering some fab prizes to the winners of the challenge:
Winner: $10 gift voucher to spend in the download store.
and the
Top 3 chosen by the DT: All receive a free digi stamp voucher of their choice.

That's all from me today.

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.
DI list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick
Hair: Antique Linen, Walnut Stain
Dress and Bow: Bundled Sage
Door: Gathered Twigs

As always there are some fabulous prizes to be won:

Winner: A £10 voucher to spend in the download store.
Each of the Top 3: A free digi stamp voucher (of your choice) from the store. 

Thank you for popping in.

Have a wonderful weekend.

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:


That's all from me today.

Thank you for popping in.

Take care.

Hugs
