Spring colours

Good morning everyone, it's time for a new challenge over at the Polkadoodles blog. This week the team were challenged to make something with Spring Colours and here is my make for this week.

I have used the Winnie Fruit Punch collection. When I use this collection I usually go for the ever so cute fat Bee so thought I'd do something different instead. So I used one of the design sheets which you can buy on it's own HERE. There is loads left over for another make too.
I fussy cut everything out by hand and added some sparkle to the butterflies and bird using a Wink of Stella pen. I edged the papers with black ink for some faux matting and layering. I then mounted to topper, the embellies and the sentiments onto 3D foam to give some dimension to the card. Lovely spring colours I think, and makes me feel like summer is finally on the way.
Why not come and join our challenge for the chance to win some fab goodies! And of course check out what the rest of the team have made over at the blog.

Lots of Love

Good morning a very happy
 Today at the Digi Choosday blog the team were challenged to make something with lots of love. The challenge for you as always is anything goes. I chose to use the new Winnie Celebrations 2 collection. I used a pre-coloured image as I'm still struggling with nerve issues. I then used one of the banners and added my own sentiment to it. I did this in My Craft Studio but you can do it in Word if you don't have a graphics program. I also used one of the papers, with love hearts, from the collection and matted it onto coordinating card stock and layered up with 3D foam pads. Finally I stamped to heart from the Regal Peacock stamp set 5 times, coloured it red with inks and made it into a flower and added stamens.
Now don't forget as it's Digi Choosday we give you a massive discount code to use on digis in the Polkadoodles store, but it's only valid for 24 hours so grab it while it's there!
I'm entering this into the following challenges:

Spring Flowers

Good morning everyone, I'm here today with a new challenge from the Polkadoodles blog. This week the team were challenged to make something with spring flowers on, the challenge for you as always is anything goes.
I knew straight away I wanted to use some of the fabulous Polkadoodles flower dies, so I chose to use the flowers 2 dies set, and here is my make.

I also used the small frame from the Bubbleicious Frames die set.
So actually this isn't what I started out making, I started by cutting some of the flowers and usimg my pink and purple inks on them, but I wasn't happy with the results as I didn't think they were spring like so I started again.This time I decided to use my Brusho powders and was happy with the colours. So actually a quick card took me over an hour to make, but hey ho I love it, and I had great fun making it, and that is what crafting is all about isn't it!
Here's a close up of the flowers for you.
Why not come and join in the challenge and be in with a chance to win some fab prizes. See you over at the blog.
