2 papers

Good morning everyone. Today over at the Polkadoodles challenge blog we have some mid challenge inspiration for you. The challenge set last week was to use more than two papers and here is my make.

I've used papers and embellies form one of my fave collections, Picknix 1. I've used the Home Grown bundle for this, or you can buy the whole collection here, which of course is better value as you get 3 kits for less than the price of 2.

Summer colours

Good morning and Happy
Today over at the Digi Choosday blog the team were challenged to make something with summer colours on and here is my make.

Ok, so it's actually two makes. But what says summer more than strawberries and cream, and cherries and cocktails? My cards are both cream blanks and the back is mounted onto 3D foam to make it stand out.
I've used a design sheet from the ever so cute Winnie Fruit Punch collection. And there is so much on those sheets I got 2 cards out of just one of them!

Buttons!

Good morning and Happy
Today over at the Digi Choosday blog the team were challenged to make something with buttons on and here is my make.
I've used a design sheet from the beautiful Winnie Sugar Sprinkles collection. 
So of course the buttons are paper ones but I added some Glossy Accents to make them look more real. I love the delicate colours on this.

Summer

Good morning and Happy
Today over at the Digi Choosday blog the team were challenged to make something with a summer theme. Well what says summer more than sitting on a pier dangling your feet in a lovely warm ocean? Not much eh, and this is very similar to what I will be doing when you read this post! Eeeek I'll be in Mauritius celebrating my 50th, woo hoo
Anyhoo, you're not bothered about that are you. So of course I've used the fabulous Winnie Starfish and Sandcastles collection. You can also buy this on it's on as a design sheet here.

Die cuts

Good morning everyone. Over at the Polkadoodles blog today we have a new challenge for you. The team were challenged to use a die cut on our makes. And here is my make.

I used the Polkadoodles Bubbleicious die set for this make. I cut the two frames from watercolour card and then left the die in place and used a distress ink to add some colour around the edge of the die. I mounted the frames onto 3D foam and stuck them down. I then stamped out the Flamingo, flowers and foliage from the Tropical Paradise Flamingo stamp set, also onto watercolour card. Again I used the distress ink to colour them in. I then sprayed the flowers and leaves with water so the card became pliable. I then shaped the flowers and leaves, added some stamens to the flowers and glued in place on the card.

Flowers

Good morning and a very happy
Today over at the Digi Choosday blog we were challenge to use flowers on our makes, and here is my make.
I've gone for quite a CAS (Clean and Simple) make this week as I wanted to show off those beautiful flowers. They are from the Winnie Winterland download collection. Or if you wish you can just buy the foliage collection on it's own HERE, it does include the flowers as well. So who says a Christmas collection is just for Christmas? This proves it isn't don't you think. 
So, I started with an A6 kraft card blank and mounted some cream card on 3D foam and stuck down. I then got out my Elegant Nest dies and cut two of them out in the same card stock, and mounted on 3D foam. I then fussy cut the flowers and leaves and shaped them with a ball tool. I layered all the different sized ones up and glued a pearl in the middle of each flower. I then added some pearls at the top of the card to finish it off. Don't you just love how those dies emboss as well as cut! It's such a small thing but gives a massive impact!
