One of the things I love most about Polkadoodles’ artwork is the little toadstool embellishments that are found in almost every kit. So, I just had to include them in this card. This card took a lot of fussy cutting, which I normally avoid(!) but , it was worth it .
Apologies for the terrible pun! I have stuck with the Christmas theme for today’s post. This is a card made with Kanban backing papers and some vintage decoupage with a Docrafts Forever Friends Chorister bear.
I have used the image Holiday cottage scene. The image was coloured with Promarkers and I printed the sentiment from my computer. I used papers from Woodware that were free with a magazine and finished with some gems from my bling box. All the elements used to make up this card were edged using Ranger distress ink in Evergreen Bough.
Now although my card is square(!), the challenge is actually to make a card that is not square, so go along to Creative Fingers to enter you project and see the other (not square) inspirational projects.
Today’s card is made using a fablous Rick St Dennis digi, which has been coloured in sepia tones using Promarkers. The background paper is vintage Kanban and the sentiment is Hunkydory. There’s more from Rick St. Dennis tomorrow so please popback for some more Christmas inspiration and the Creative Fingers challenge.
I have used a Heather Ellis digistamp for today’s card. It came as part of a collection on a CD from Digital Cardmaking Magazine. The papers were also free with a magazine and some were cut down to make embellishments.
Today’s CAS card was made using a freebie form Nikky Hall at Polkadoodles. This is from the the digi kit called Rose Budd, which is available on CD. The embossed crdis from DoCrafts. Challenges for today will be:
This week’s challenge is sponsored by Emerald Fairies and what a perfct digi company for a Make it sparkle challenge! I have used Binki and Buzz. I have used a new technique for me and die cut the image with a few elements cut out manually to over lap the frame made by the mat. The backing paper is by Jayne Nestorenko and is part of the Cute Companions range. I finished with a congratulations sentiment, thinking this would make a great alternative card for passing a driving test.
This is my new Christmas book, for lists, gifts and cards at Chriatmas! I bought a plain A4 book with a kraft coloured cover. I designed a page using Serif CraftArtist 2 and Polkadoodles Home for Christmas CD-Rom. I put the church as central, as for me it is what Christmas is all about. But I have incuded Santa with his sleigh, a heart to symbolise love, 2 international girls, lots of gifts and last but not least, some snow-covered mushroom houses. Why? Because I like them! The fonts used are from my computer.
I cut a length of old ribbon into small pieces and ties a piece to one in three of the binding coils. The other bits of ribbon and lace are from my stash and he bell used to adorn the neck of a chocolate reindeer!
