Fabulous Friday - Wish it was Spring :-)

Spring - I can but dream :-)  It's a long way off yet though and there's plenty of snow on the ground to remind us it's still Winter.

But in my crafting I can show Spring :-)

Our challenges at Polkadoodles are now always Anything Goes.  The Design Team were asked to used only a Design Sheet from any of the collections for our cards this fortnight.

I have used the delightful Winnie Sugar Sprinkles.  This is Design Sheet #11 from the collection. It can, however, be also purchased as the single Design Sheet too - so if you need a quick card, why not pop along to the Polkadoodles store and look at all the Design Sheets available. Of course you could check out all the fabulous collections too - they are such a bargain!

I cut all the pieces using my Silhouette Cameo - but they are great to cut free hand too!

I did use one piece of card stock that has been embossed, with a Cuttlebug Geometric Rings emossing folder, for the backing on the front and the inside of my card.  I used the Spellbinders Pierced Oval die for my message panel and used the spare little bird house for the inside too.

I have inked all the edges of all my layers and added some dimension with foam tape.

Don't you just love Winnie, she is so adorable.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges.

Fabulous Friday - A Little Shabby Chic

Happy Friday everyone.  Wow these days are really going by quickly. Before you know it, it will be Christmas again LOL!

Anyways, first off I would like to apologise for my lack of blog visiting over the past few weeks. Now that things are returning to normal I will be visiting again and seeing what you have all been up to.

Polkadoodles challenges are now always Anything Goes, so if you craft anything you can enter the challenge.

As part of the Design Team we were given the brief to use a die cut, you can if you wish follow along with that or not :-)

I have used a fabulous new download collection called Belle Papillon.  It is shabby chic and vintage all rolled into one.  If you like stamping, there are also complete kits with stamps, papers, dies and the CD for you to play with - why not go take a look in the Polkadoodles store today - HERE.

Everything on my card is from the collection, except the background leaves for which I used the Super Sprigs Polkadoodles Die - I printed of a paper from the collection and then used the die.

For the inside I have started merging my layers using the Silhouette Design Studio program.  I do all my card designing in there, then all I do is print and cut all the pieces.

I have inked all the layers and all the pieces before assembling my card.  I adore those butterflies, they look so delicate.

I love the soft pastel colours in this collection, but with a little ink on the edges it really makes them pop.

Once again, I hope to be picking up the crafting bug again and will be catching up with all of you soon.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges.
