Happy Halloween

Good afternoon

Not really had much time to craft this past week or so but when the new Winnie Trick or Treat Witch appeared on the Polkadoodles webby I decided to set an hour or so aside today to work on a quick card using the coloured digi available as a two set collection for £2.25!!!  Bargain or what.  Here she is....thumb linky at the bottom to take you to the website.



Here is my card.  Quick make from me made by overlaying some of the papers and digi embellies from the Witchie Witchie collection printed on kraft card and then I printed out three copies of the Winnie witch onto kraft card and then decoupaged her and added some neon green liquid pearls around the edges and some glitter here and there.  Hope you like it.

It's Digi Choosday Day - Week 43 - Anything Goes

Hello everybody            

It’s Digi Choosday day again. 

Hope you’re ready to enter another Digi Choosday Challenge.

Every week our challenge will be ‘ANYTHING GOES ’ but the design team will have their own challenge theme just to keep them on their toes, which this week it’s USE KRAFT CARD.

Full details of what I’ve used can be found in the Thumb Linkies below.

I've made some oversized gift tags using the Festive Christmas collection and combined it with the Super Sprig die cuts that I've cut from Kraft card and embellished with glitter to give the effect of frosting and berries.  The tags I've used are from the Festive Christmas collection which is available on CD and download and I've matted them onto Kraft card and embellished with decoupage by resizing the co-ordinating embellishments from the collection and then layering glitter and Nuvo drops around the edges and inked them up with Dewdrop Ink in Jumbo Java.  I had some lovely wired red and gold ribbon in my stash that works perfectly with the designs.  These tags are going to be used for my family's extra special presents this year because I know they'll love them and they'll be treasured.


Here are my makes for this week’s challenge:       







I’m excited to see your makes for this week’s challenge.  And not only can you win a fabulous prize if you are in the top 3/random prize winner but you can also grab your discount code.  How fab is that?  The discount code only lasts for 24 hours so you’d better head off over there right now to grab it.

So for my make this week I've gone back to two of the older collections...Festive Hollybobs Work & Play 5 Collection and Work & Play 9 Love & Kisses Collection.
to make an 8x8 card with the front flap turned down from corner to corner.  I've used the papers from the Festive Hollybobs collection and the coloured digi called Mailing A Letter which I've decoupaged in several layers.  The bow is also from the collection.  The scrabble tiles are from the Love & Kisses Collection but I've recoloured them using Serif Craft Artist and stuck them to the inside of the card.  I've used some faux glittering snow and some white faux string pearls along the edge to finish off the card and of course some mini pompoms in white for the top of the girl's hat and also a few snowballs in the corner of the card.

Here is my make for this week’s challenge:

POLKADOODLES - MY MUM'S BIRTHDAY CARD

Hello everybody    

It's my mum's birthday and I've made her an extra special card because she's an extra special person.

Full details of what I’ve used for this make can be found in the Thumb Linkies below.

I've made an 8x8 card using the Summertime CD flowers and the Happy Birthday sentiment.  I used one of the stamping underlays for the design of my card but used the coloured digis available on the CD collection to lay over the underlay and then built it up by printing the elements out several times and then layering them with Pinflair Glue Gel and then the insides of the flowers have glossy accents and decoart glitter in them and then around the edges I drew a wavy lines with a black Sharpie marker....the original underlay had straight lines.  I hope this shows you that you don't have to use your stamps to use the underlays. I've also added some of the super sprigs cut from white card and inked up using the brand new die you can get details of down below in the thumb linkies and the scrabble tiles I've used are from the Love & Kisses Work & Play Collection.
Here is my make......         
Take care
