Xmas

Good morning everyone. It's time for a new challenge over at the Polkadoodles blog and this time the team were challenged to make something for Christmas. The challenge for you as always is Anything Goes. And don't forget from December we are changing to a weekly challenge.
Well I'm well on a roll with my Christmas makes, in fact I think they are all just about done now, only a couple of family ones left to do.
So here is my make for this week.


Now this started off as a couple of scraps of paper and a left over small image from one of the cutting room sheets from the Winnie Winterland collection. I looked at them and thought I would make one of my tags with them, and then changed my mind and decided to make a small card. And here is how it happened.
 It was two scraps of paper and one of them was a bit bent over at the edge. But I loved the brightness of them so wanted to use them on a card. So I cut each little strip of paper into four pieces and mounted them onto a piece of white card in a patchwork style.
 I then added some faux stitching with a white gel pen. I then mounted that onto a piece of green glitter card that was also a left over bit.
I then mounted that further onto another piece of white and then green glitter card before mounting onto a small white card blank. Which was also a left over bit of card after I had cut an 7x7 card from a piece of A3 card. I cut the image using the middle die from the Polkadoodles Elegant Nest set of 3 dies and mounted that onto 3D foam. Finally I had a few left over embellies that I added om 3D foam. And there you have it, a card from scraps!

White with a hint of colour

Good morning everyone. I'm here to day with a make for the Polkadoodles blog, the challenge which started last week for the team is to make something for Christmas with just a hint of colour. The challenge for you as always is Anything Goes. 
Before I show you my make I wanted to let you know things are changing at our blog. We are going from a fortnightly challenge to a weekly one, how great is that! That means you can join us more often and be in with a chance to win more challenges. That starts from the beginning of December.

So now on to my make for this challenge, here it is.

I've used the Winnie Winterland collection for this make. I've printed the image onto glossy photo paper and cut it out using the Polkadoodles Bubbleicious Frame die. I've mounted it onto 3D foam and added to an embossed layer that has a hint of green glitter card behind it. And there you have it, very simple but very effective I think.
Go check out what the rest of the team have made for more inspiration for you.

Bright

Good morning and a very happy
 Today over at the Digi Choosday blog the team were challenged to make something nice and bright. I decided to carry on with my Christmas tags and make a nice bright one for one of the young ones in my life. And here it is:
I've used one of my fave collections of the last year, the ever so cute Winnie Winterland. In fact I've used some scraps of paper that most would throw away and created one of my fave patchwork tags. They do take a while to make but I love them so don't mind spending the time on them. Also they go to someone special so even more of a reason to spend time on them.
The colours in this collection are so bright and vivid I immediately thought of this when I saw the challenge. I added the bright white pen for the faux stitching too. The image and embellies are printed onto glossy photo paper as well which makes them even more vivid.
So don't forget to go grab today's discount code from the blog, and check out what the rest of the team have been up to. 
See you soon.

Christmas again

Good morning and a very happy 
Today over at the Digi Choosday blog the challenge for the team was to make something for Christmas that isn't a card, well of course I made a tag, and here it is.
I've used the gorgeous Winnie White Christmas download collection to make this. I've fussy cut lots and lots of embellies and tried all different positions on the tag until I was happy with it and then added 3D foam to stick them down. I've finished it off with some red bakers twine.
So don't forget to go grab today's massive discount code from the blog.

Christmas

Good morning everyone. I'm here today with a make from our new challenge over at Polkadoodles. The challenge for team is to make something for Christmas that isn't a card. The challenge for you as always is anything goes.
So here is my make.
Of course you knew it, I made a tag. I LOVE my tags as I think adding a handmade tag to a gift makes it more special. So I have used the Winnie White Christmas collection to make this. I've cut 2 layered tag and painted the back one with a gold Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolour paint, and then used the same paints in yellow, red and green on the top tag. I've then fussy cut some embellies from the collection and mounted them onto 3D foam to make them pop. I've finished it off with some red bakers twine.
