Peace & Joy!

    Happy Friday my crafty friends! For my post today I have card I created using another precious Polkadoodles digital image. 

                                           

I love creating Christmas cards, especially with with non-traditional colors! I copic colored the beautiful "Fairy Gifts" Winnie and added die cuts from the gorgeous Poinsettia Lace dies that I colored in a soft pink. The "Peace and Joy" sentiment is a free digi. Of course I had to add some bling and sparkle because as we know a fairy always sparkles wherever she goes!

You've Got Mail! 💝

    Hey there friends, I'm here today to share a shaped card featuring a Polkadoodles digital image. 


 I created a hinged Post Box shaped card which was a perfect backdrop for the adorable Sugar Pops digital image called "Mailing A Letter" which I colored with copic markers. I layered 2 flowers from the "Flower Flourish" die set and after shaping the petals to give them dimension, I anchored them together with a polk-a-dot brad. I added a die cut from the "Super Sprigs" die set and attached a small, red, gingham bow. Lastly I added silver alphas to spell U.S. Mail.
I hope you like this little shaped card as I had such fun creating it.

 Hi friends, I'm here to share the last installment of "Christmas in Summer 2020!" I hope you enjoy seeing these cards that I've created, because I had so much fun making them. Under all the cards will be a video where you can see the cards in much better lighting and you will be able to see the shimmer and sparkle that my camera doesn't pick up. 

This is a Lawn Fawn scene card that I made with the "Christmas Dreams" stamp and die set. 

Here is another scene card featuring stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn, called Winter Skies. 

Last but definitely not least is a slimline card featuring stamps and dies from the "Wooly Winter" set from Mama Elephant! 

Here is my video where you can see these cards in much better lighting. Fast forward to minute 4.31 to see the first card.

Hello Summer!

                           Hi there and welcome to my blog my crafty friends! Today I'm sharing another project for Polkadoodles, and this is a summer themed card with fun citrus colors. 

 I colored this adorable Winnie Sunshine Delight Little Friends stamp with copics and did lots of layers of paper in various citrus colors. I attached a tiny tag that says "Fly Free" as Winnie is surrounded on the card with butterfly friends! Digital papers are from the Winnie Sugar Sprinkles set #4 which went beautifully with the summer theme. 
Until next time, keep on crafting! ☀️

Polkadoodles in all Gray tones!

       Hello my crafty friends, for my Polkadoodles project I'm sharing a card with an image that I colored in various gray copic markers. This is a first for me coloring an image in monochromatic tones, and I really enjoyed it so I will definitely be doing this again! 
      
I think the Lil Miss Sugarpops digital image is absolutely adorable, and looks cute in all gray tones. I added sentiments from the Sunshine Delights sentiment bundle, which conveyed the right message for this encouraging, friendship card. 

Thank you so much for stopping by to see what I created and I hope you will visit the Polkadoodles challenge blog to see the other projects the designers made and even have some fun and join in this weeks "anything goes" challenge!

Poinsettia Cards for the Sparkle!

Christmas in Summer round 2! 🎄
I'm here to share a couple of the Christmas cards I made but I hope that you will click on the video link below to see the rest of the cards I made for this fun collaboration! 
       
For this first card which I absolutely love, I used the Sizziz Tattered Poinsettia Die from Tim Holtz. I don't have the coordinating embossing folder so I used a snowflake one that I've had for years and it did the trick. I used oxide inks to color the flowers and leaves, added Distress Paint in Rock Candy and then foreven more sparkle and shine I added diamond stickles and Diamond Dust glitter.  The paper for both of the cards is from My Minds Eye, Sparkle and Shine die set is from W Plus 9. I've added sequins in pink and clear from Pretty Pink Posh. 

For my second card I added the Silent Night sentiment from Papertry Ink and the star above the town is from Simon Says Stamp. Instead of sequins I added tiny silver stars to the night sky. 

I hope you enjoyed seeing these cards and I've included the video so you can see all the cards I've created.
