CYCLING WINNIE


I have recently been colouring up some of the digis in my collection that I've never used before.  I absolutely love this one.  She's so quirky with her untidy, windswept hair and little smile.  She's called Cycling Girl, and she's part of the Polkadoodles Work & Play 4 collection.  I have coloured her with markers and also drawn in her background with markers.  Around her is a shape I cut on my Cameo.

The background paper is from the Polkadoodles Winnie Fruit Punch collection.  I've added a paper doily and a strip of Simplicity lace.  The flowers are Prima and 49 and Market, and the butterflies are Jenni B.

KITTY ACROBATICS


This sweet image is a Paper Shelter digi, called Kitty Acrobatics.  I have coloured it with markers, and drawn in the background with markers too.

My papers are from the Heartfelt Creations Enchanted Mum pack.  The sentiment was a freebie stamp with a magazine.  The flowers are 49 and Market, and the gems are Want 2 Scrap.  The clouds have been created using Prima Snowflake Paste.

NEW JOB


I often have situations when someone asks if I have a card they could take for a particular event, or I personally need one for a particular event, and I don't have one available.  Then I have to rush one out - something I hate doing!  

I decided to start working on a few cards, covering a variety of situations, to have in my stash, ready for situations just like this.  This is the first.

I have used one of the brand new digis from the Polkadoodles Winnie Celebrations 2 collection, called New Job, and coloured her with markers.  The background paper and sentiment are from the same collection, and the dotty paper I've printed the sentiment on, is from the Winnie Celebrations 3 collection.

The sentiment was cut out using a Poppy Crafts stitched die.  

To create the background, I first coloured the floor and a plain colour for the wall (which became the grouting sections).  I then used a Tim Holtz brick stencil and distress ink to create the bricks.  The be able to get the background right up to the stamp, I photocopied my coloured stamp and cut her out, creating a 'mask', which I then laid on top of my coloured stamp, protecting it from my background inks as I sponged them on - a technique my very talented sister shared with me - thanks Pat!!

PENNY'S PAPER-CRAFTY CHALLENGE #367: ANYTHING GOES


HELLO EVERYBODY!

This week at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges, we have an Anything Goes challenge, with two fantastic prizes up for grabs!

is giving away 2 digi stamps of the winner's choice, and

I got to use this gorgeous image from All Dressed Up, called Wear With Style, and coloured it with markers.  I drew and coloured the Cafe background too.  With all four girls part of the same stamp, I wanted to print it off quite big, to show off as much of them as possible, and keep the rest of the card fairly simple.  

My papers are from the Bo Bunny Serendipity pack.  The sentiments are recent freebies from magazines (how perfect for this image!), the flowers are Prima, and the big brad is KaiserCraft.




Well, hopefully you're feeling inspired to get crafty and get your entry in at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges, to stand a chance to win one of these fantastic prizes!

DIGI CHOOSDAY WEEK 7


Hi Everybody!

It's Valentine's Day tomorrow, so this is your LAST CHANCE to make a card for your special someone, if you haven't already!! The team at Digi Choosday was tasked with the perfect theme to inspire you this week: Lots of Love.


I have been playing around with U-fold cards lately, so that's what I've gone with.  It's so easy to do, and creates such a fantastic scene, leaving the back panel to write a message on.  It also folds flat, so it's easy to slide it into an envelope.

I used the adorable Horace and Boo collection to create my furry love scene.  The cloud and trees are stuck to the back panel, with Horace and Boo themselves and the grassy border on the middle panel.  

The papers, cloud, trees, fence, bunting and merit badge are all from the Horace and Boo collection, while the sentiments come from the Winnie Special Moments collection, and the overlapping hearts on the bottom panel are from the Work & Play 9: Love & Kisses collection.





Well, I hope you feel inspired to get crafty today!  You can click below to return to the challenge to get today's discount code, see what the rest of the Design Team have created for your inspiration, and enter your creation:

Happy crafting!
