Polkadoodles - Winnie Sugar Sprinkles - Part 7

Hellloooo

So my second post this evening and more inspiration from the Winnie Sugar Sprinkles available from Polkadoodles.

I've done another shaped card for my make this time and used a new die that I've had a couple of weeks now to make an ACCORDIAN CARD using Kraft Card and four of the black and white framed images from Winnie which I've coloured the bows and flowers with Graph It pens 5120, 5160, the skin with 4115, 4145, 4155, 6150 and the frames with 7140 and dots with the Shake White pen.  I've left the rest of the image white except for the hair which I've done some zentangling on using a Staedtler Pigment Liner 0.3 and the edges have been inked with a Versa Magic Jumbo Java ink pad.  The sentiments and all the embellies are from the collection and I've used some pink pom pom edging for parts of the card.

Here it is:

Polkadoodles - Winnie Sugar Sprinkles - Part 6

Hello

So it's the first of my blogs of today featuring the lovely new Winnie Sugar Sprinkles from Polkadoodles.  There's been a lot of samples for inspiration shared over on our Facebook pages for Polkadoodles and Digi Choosday and you've still got time to enter into the fun we've been having with the Treasure Hunts going on through the day.  Head on over if you've not had chance to enter, but in the meantime here's some more inspiration for you.

I've used the bunny winnie and some of the flowers and papers and the little bunny and leaves and the sentiments of course, to make this bendy decoupaged card and then added some Ice Stickles Glitter Glue to the middle of the flowers. 









I'm going to give this card to my mum as a Mother's Day card from our house rabbits....because they love their nanna so much.  I'm going to be making her a present from the Collection too but more on that at the weekend.  Don't want to let the cat out of the bag soooo soon just in case she sees her present.

Polkadoodles - Winnie Sugar Sprinkles - Part Four

Hellooooo

Well it's been a fantastic day of launching the brand new collection by Polkadoodles called Winnie Sugar Sprinkles and I've had a fantastic time making the four samples I've showcased today.  This is my final share of the day, but I'll be back tomorrow with some more makes and then maybe on Monday too.

For this make I've used a preshaped card that has scalloped edging.  Love using different shaped cards as it adds just a little bit more dimension.
I've used another one of the design sheets for this make and you can find it HERE  (Design Sheet 4)

With just a few additions of Glamour Dust and Liquid Pearls in white opal and some Glossy Accents in the centres of the flowers I've created a great card.




Take care

Polkadoodles - Winnie Sugar Sprinkles - Part Two

Hello again

Back to share a card I made with one of the design sheets featuring the wonderful new uber cute Winnie Sugar Sprinkles.  There's a whole host of design sheets that are on the collection and also can be bought singly.  You can get the one I used HERE (Design Sheet 11)

There's so much crammed onto the design sheets that you can make a card or whatever and still have plenty left to use.  I decided to cut up the main background and make a topper for the bird houses and use the stripy strips of paper for the bird house stands.  Good eh?  The paper is from the main collection.  I used my Memento Ink pad in Summer Sky for the edging and Pinflair Silicone Gel for the sticking and some Ice Stickles Glitter Glue for the sparkly touches and some Liquid Pearls in blue for the flower middles.



Be back later with some more inspiration for you.

Take care

Polkadoodles - Winnie Sugar Sprinkles (Part 1)

Hello everybody

Welcome to a brand new collection from Polkadoodles.

She's uber cute and she's called Winnie Sugar Sprinkles and is full of yummy chocolate-y springtime goodness for all your Easter makes and Mother's Day makes and all the way through Spring and beyond.  There's digi images in black and white and coloured and matching designer papers and tons of sentiments and embellies and the list goes on and on.

You can get your collection HERE on download and the rest of the collection in tiny bits and black and white digis HERE as well


Here's my first make for your inspiration.  I used the teacup from the embellies section and printed it out at A4 size on card and then reversed the print so I could print it back and front and then glue together for an oversized teacup shape card.  I then decoupaged one of the lovely Winnie precoloured digis and layered the little lady over the cups and added glitter and glossy accents here and there and then printed a resized I love You Mum banner out and glittered this and stuck to the cup.  And check out the chickens on the banner!!!  I got these from the embellies section.  Uber cute make.


Here it is:








Please pop back in a couple of hours to see some more inspiration.

Take care

Work & Play 12 Collection - Samples from Create & Craft Show 23.2.2016

Hello everybody

Well I hope you all managed to watch Nikky from Polkadoodles on Create & Craft today, but if not have no fear because you can catch up for seven days on the website if you didn't manage to record the show. 
Well the show was as fabulous as usual but a new Work & Play Collection Number 12 was released which a few of the Design Team managed to have a play with beforehand and create the fabby new samples that were on the show with Nikky.


I'm going to be showcasing the samples I made for the show this week and starting off with my first one which uses one of the precoloured cat digis from the collection which I've decoupaged and combined with a sentiment from the collection but the backdrop of the card is a page from the Colour Therapy 1 Collection which I've coloured with Lyra Art pens.
The birds and the rabbits that are on the card are also from the Work & Play 12 Collection
I've used the papers from the collection for the matting and layering too
This is an 8x8 card which features Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Glue, Glossy Accents and Twine to finish the card off.











Hope you like it.

Click on the thumb linky below to be zoomed off to the shop to buy the big Kahuna bundle on download, but you can get your CD version from Create & Craft as an exclusive order for the next two weeks.  There's also lots of little digi collections and black and white digis available too.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

Crafting From The Heart #100

I had a lovely photo in a frame of my mum and dad’s wedding and so I scanned it into my computer and then edited it by changing it to black and white and using the papers and flowers and leaves and sentiment and buttons from the collection I made a fab 8x8 scrapbooking page by printing it onto watercolour card afterwards.
