Polka Doodles challenge week 43

It's not my turn for the challenge at Polka Doodles this week but I wanted to join in as I'm loving working with the A Home for Christmas CD Collection so thought I'd gate crash and join in!
The challenge is to  make anything but a card, and here is my project. I cut out 3 tags in Kraft card and then printed some papers, embellishments and sentiments from the CD. I cut out three strips of papers for each tag and distressed the edges using distress ink. I glued the papers onto the tags and added some faux stitching with a white opaque pen. I then cut out all the embellishments and stuck them in place. I then used a distress ink on the sentiments and added them. I finished off the tags with some ribbon.

New weekly blog!

Hello all, I'm very pleased to announce that at Polka Doodles there is a new team dedicated to the digi downloads, and I am part of that team! How exciting! It is called Digi Choosday.
So here is my first card for the first challenge.

Isn't the digi image just adorable! It is called Teddy hug and can be found here. I have coloured him with my Graph' It markers and then sprayed him with Graph'It Mix It Fluid which gives some texture. The papers and embellishments are from the Home for Christmas CD Collection. I have embossed a piece of white card and then used gold, copper and green Pan Pastels. I'm in love with the metallic pans, they give such a great effect!

Polka Doodles challenge week 42

The theme over at Polka Doodles this week is Christmas Is Coming. I decided to do a gatefold easel for this challenge for something a little bit different.
Here is the card
I have used images and papers from the A Home for Christmas CD Collection. The images are coloured with Graph'It Markers and slightly distressed with a distress ink. I've added some spider web, flowers and buttons. There's some real fun images in this collection, it's not all about people, although there are some in it, it's more about houses and Christmas Characters, so there is something for everyone.

Pan Pastel week 41 UK challenge

I have recently started using Pan Pastels and have fallen in love with the metallics so thought I'd enter their challenge. This challenge is "Falling Leaves" and here is what I have created.

For the background I mixed some Pan Pastel  with some Gesso and put in on through a leaf mask. I then used a gold, copper and bronze Pan for the background and then went over the leaves again with the green to make them stand out a bit more. I then printed some leaves from the Bonbon Belles Double CD and some trees and acorns from the Cherryblossom Lane CD. I added some copper Pan to the leaves and trees to give them a look of Autumn. I'm really please with how this turned out.

Graph' It marker challenge, week 16

There's a new challenge over at the Graph' It Markers blog and it is to use greys so I am entering this card. The image is from the new My Craft Studio 6th Anniversary 10 CD collection and of course is coloured with Grey Graph' Its. The colours I used are from the Warm Grey collection, 9405, 9404, 9403 & 9402. The background is created with the A4 leaves stencil, Maimeri Glassy Gel and the permanent Green Shade - Pan Pastel which you can get by clicking on the links or go to Polka Doodles to browse for more options and colours.
I'm really loving using the Pan Pastels as I am new to them, but will be building up my stock for sure!

Studio 12 at Polka Doodles

'Tis I again, 2 posts in 2 days, how good am I lol!
I'm here today with a Studio 12 make. This box started out life as a plain paper mache box. I gave it a coat of plain old emulsion then used some distress ink around the edges and corners. I used a mask on the lid to create a bit of a pattern. Then got busy with some Studio 12 stamps. I used the Distressed Zig and Zag stamp set, and the Vintage Ephemera stamp set.

I added some acetate to the lid and used one of the stamps on that as well. This is so easy to do, why not get an old box and get creating. They make lovely little pressies.

A few cards and some candy!

I've finally had a chance to play some more with the fabulous Home for Christmas CD Collection from Polka Doodles and have made a couple of cards.

I have to say I LOVE these cards and will make sure they go to someone special. The images and papers are all from the CD. I've used my Graph 'It Markers to colour the images, I just love the blues and pinks, this is one of my fave colour combos for Christmas cards.

Now, have you seen the fantastic candy up for grabs on the Pan Pastel blog? No, then pop over to here and have a look. Just look at all those goodies,  which are worth over £120!! WOW - that is a LOT of stash!!
Good luck everyone!

Polka Doodles challenge week 40

The challenge over at Polka Doodles this week is Autumn. Here is the card I have made.
For the card I have used papers, images and embellishments from the Bonbon Belles Double CD Collection and from the Sundae of Seasons CD-Rom. I created a background in the My Craft Studio program and added some shadows to give depth. I also cut some leaves out separately to add some 3D embellishments to the card.
