Fabulous Friday - More Christmas stamping.

Happy Friday everyone.

Polkadoodles challenges are now Always Anything Goes.

We are in a Christmas mood at Polkadoodles and are loving all the new stamps!

I have used Christmas Poinsettia/Holly stamp set.

Christmas Poinsettia/Holly -  Clear Stamp Set

And the wonderful Christmas Santa Claus Stamp set for the sentiment.

Christmas Santa Claus -  Clear Stamp Set

I chose to use wonderful papers from the Festive Christmas collection for my two background layers and the sentiment panel.


I stamped the poinsettia onto green and then red papers from the Festive Chrsitmas collection too.


For the inside I stamped just the poinsettia and then added the message panel.


After stamping the poinsettia once on green and three on red, I then fussy cut them to get that layered look.

I added some Sakura Gel pen to the berries and  a little bit of glitter to the centre of the poinsettia.


Chirstmas ahhhh :-)

So Sunday it is, and a little bit of Christmas Stamping!

Hello everyone. I know!  Twice in a few days.

Ah well time in the craft room is always time well spent :-)

Today I was playing around with some of the new Polkadoodles stamps!

You can see all the new releases on this link.

For my card I have used the sentiment from Christmas Gifts & Stockings

Christmas Gifts & Stockings -  Clear Stamp Set

And the tree is from Christmas Tree Script stamp set.

Christmas Tree Script -  Clear Stamp Set

Here is my very quick card.



As I am not one for colouring, I chose some lovely papers from the Frosted Winter collection.   I first stamped the tree script on the grey background, then I stamped it again on a green coloured paper.  Then all I did was fussy cut out the tree, and inked the edges :-)


For the inside I just stamped the tree on it's own and then added a message panel, replicating the front.


For the sentiment on the front I chose a piece of ephemera from the Frosted Winter collection and then stamped on the sentiment.


I also used some of the little snow flakes from the stamps - which I stamped in white and then added some Sukura Gel pen - I should have thought about it more and I could have heat embossed the snowflakes.


A nice quick card and won't be too heavy for posting either :-)

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy crafting.

Fabulous Friday - Red, White & Blue

Happy Friday everyone.

All our Polkadoodles challenges are now Anything Goes.  Lots of new releases in the store which you can check out HERE.

My little bit of inspiration for you this week, uses the wonderful Daisydays download collection. Our theme as the DT was Red, White & Blue and this collection had the perfect set of papers and flowers :-)

I love the mix of papers and have inked all the edges of all the layers.


For the inside making a single layer with the elements from the front.


For the flowers I just cut them twice, inked the edges and layered for dimension.


Simple sentiment could be used for any occasion :-)

I love the colour palette in this collection and the pleased with how the flowers turned out.  All the edges have been inked and the sentiment panel popped on to some foam tape.

Fabulous Friday - Sunshine Yellows

Hello everyone.  Happy Friday.

Finally the summer has arrived - the weather has been fabulous the last few days and quite appropriate that this weeks theme is Sunshine Yellows.

Here is my little bit of inspiration for our Anything Goes challenges at Polkadoodles.

I have used the wonderful Dollie Daydream Goes East collection for all the papers and the quote.


I have also used the wonderful Polkadoodles Dies, Flower Flourish Die, Elegant Flourish Die, Flower 2 Die and the Super Sprigs Die on my creation.


For the inside I layered up layers in Silhouette Design Studio so that it is one complete flat piece :-)


All the edges of all the layers have been inked over.


The centre quote has been layered on some foam tape to add some depth.


I am entering this card in the following challenges.

Fabulous Friday - Lot's of Papers :-)

Hello out there my blogging buddies.  How has your week been?

I am trying to get my crafting head back on, but in order to do that I have decided to have a major sort out in my craft room.  That means binning, purging and re-organising :-)

I am giving myself two weeks to get it all done!  We have a garage sale weekend coming up, so we are having a good sort out of the girls games cupboards and their bedrooms too :-)  Guess we are all in on it :-)

Anyways, Polkadoodles challenges are now Always Anything Goes - so why not come along and enter x

For my little bit of Friday inspiration I have used the classic Rose Budd Collection for all the papers.


I have used the Mojo Monday sketch to create my layers, but I have added an oval using the beautiful Elegant Nesting Dies (the larger of the set of 3) for my sentiment panel to sit on.


For the inside I have used the same papers as the front and then added a message panel using the middle size of the Nesting Dies.


The flowers are made using the wonderful Flowers 2 Die, inking the edges and adding some pearl dots to the centres.


For the leafy elements I have used the Flower Flourish Die and the Elegant Flourish Die, again a little ink was added to the edges.


I love making up these little flowers.  I also placed some foam tape under the oval sections to add some more depth to the card.

I am entering this in the following challenges.

Fabulous Friday - Lot's of Dies

Happy Friday everyone.

The weather here is so interchangeable at the moment, raining one minute, sunny the next, we even had snow (yep I said snow!!!) earlier in the week - thank goodness it didn't come to anything though.

Anyway, onto today's post.  Polkadoodles challenges are now always Anything Goes - so why not come along and enter.

For my card today, I have used the wonderful Lavender Tea collection for my papers.  I love the subtle colour palette in this collection.


For the centre panels, I have used the beautiful Elegant Nesting Dies - it comes in a set of 3 and I love the edging of these.


For the inside, I used the same papers as the front and added a little stamping on the centre panel.

For the flowers and leaves elements, I have used several Polkadoodles Dies - for the flowers the the Flowers 2 Die was used.  The leafy elements were added using the Elegant Flourish Die and Flower Flourish Die.


All the layers, flowers etc have been inked and the centre panels raised using foam tape.  I added some pearl dots to the centre of the flowers.  A little more stamping to the centre panel for my sentiment.

Fabulous Friday - more Helga Hippo

Happy Friday everyone.

Guess what?!  My daughter Shannon comes home from college tomorrow, for the summer!!  Whoop Whoop!  So looking forward to having her home for a little while. She has been doing her 2nd Semester exams this week and her last one is today!  Love her and so proud of her.

Anyways, did you know that Polkadoodles challenges are now Always Anything Goes?!  Yep they are, so if you create something then why not come along and enter our challenges.

I have used the delightful Helga Hippo collection and one of the pre-coloured Design sheets for my card today.


Isn't she adorable!  I have used Design Sheet 2-06 from the full bundle, but this is also available as Duo Download #9 - so two Design sheets to print and cut and make cards, if you don't want to purchase the whole collection.


For the inside, I have used a couple of the papers from the bundle and then used the middle sized die from the Set of 3 Elegant Nesting Dies.


All the edges of all the layers have been inked up, to make them pop some of the elements have been layered with foam tape.  This is another 4" by 4" card to add to a set of 6.


I couldn't resist adding a Flower Flourish using the Polkadoodles die, to compliment the flower.


Now it's over to you!
