Any die will do

The challenge over at Polka Doodles this week is, any die will do.
For my card I have used an image, papers and embellishments from the Sundae Of Seasons CD. The image is coloured with ProMarkers. The doily is the Marianne D Designer Doily, the butterfly is the Marianne die CR1205 and the flowers are from the Marianne die LR0107. I've added Doodle Dewdrops to the centre of the flowers and some bling on the butterfly.
And here is the card:
I've made this for my mum who is 65 next week. Most people would use this image for a Christmas card but I wanted to show how it can be used for a winter birthday as well.
I've used Tim Holtz Spun Sugar distress ink to ink around the edges and then done a faux stitch with a black marker.

One image, 4 cards

After doing the challenge over at Polka Doodles last week, I wanted to do some more cards using the same image as I think it's really cute. This time I used the pre-coloured image and made a little scene behind the main image with a Christmas tree, some baubles and a snowflake, and added a little Robin on the top of the post box. All the elements from the image, as well as the papers are from the Here Comes Christmas CD

The snowflakes and flowers are made from Marianne Designs dies. I've also used some Tim Holtz distress ink and added a few gems here and there. It shows how you can use one image in different ways, from a basic card that a beginner could do, to a more time consuming one.

Polka Doodles challenge week 45

This is my third card for the Polka Doodles design team. This week the challenge is to make a Christmas party invite.
For this card I've used images and papers from Here Comes Christmas. I've coloured the image in with ProMarkers and added some glitter on the snow areas. The message topper is made up of a paper and a border from the CD with a the message done in word. The snowflakes and flowers are done using some Marianne Design dies.
The RSVP is tucked in behind the invite message.
 A close up of the flowers,
and the snowflake.
I think this is one of my favourite cards I have made this year.

Paper scraps

Hi all. The other day I was wondering what to do with all my left over bits of paper from my recent makes and then saw this post by Miria over at Studio 12. It certainly spured me into action as I had recently made some tags. Here are the ones I originally made:
They are all cut out from a Sizzix die on my Cuttlebug. The tags on the left are done using 2 Stampin Up punches, a scalloped circle and a cirlce with the holly cut out by hand. The ones on the right are done using papers from the Polka Doodles Here Comes Christmas CD and a few Marianne dies for the snowflakes and flowers.

And here are the ones I made using up scraps of Polka Doodles papers:

I think the papers are from the Polka Doodles Sundae of Seasons CD. I've added some faux stitching and flower and butterfly embellishments. I then added the images which are from the Polka Doodles Sugarplum Daisy CD. I then punched a hole and added some ribbon. I have to say I am very pleased with how they turned out and it will be hard to part with them! lol

Polka Doodles Challenge week 44

This is my second challenge card as part of the Polka Doodles design team.
This weeks challenge is to use bright colours and sparkle.
This week I've used bright blues, greens and oranges to create a bonfire night themed card.
The images, papers and fireworks are from the Sundae Of Seasons CD. The images are coloured with ProMarkers. The flower and leaves are from the Marianne Designs Floral 3 dies set. The flower is made using 3 flowers with the inner one curled inwards to give the effect of it still being partly in bud. I've finished it off with a Doodle Dewdrop in the centre of the flower and three at the top of the card.
