Sparkle, Bling & Glitter

Hi guys it's sparkly inspiration time over at the Polkadoodles Challenge Blog and I've used that to my advantage and made another Christmas card. I adore this little elf and coloured him with my Graph'its (4101, 4125, 4155, 4170, 4105, 4145, 1210, 1230, 1280, 8260, 8270,8280, 8290, 5210, 5215, 5230) of course the glitter came out for the fur trim. I also used my glitter pens for the holly & gemstones for the berries. The backing papers are from the Work & Play Hollibobs Cd. I used a holly embossing folder for one of the layers and added a bit of sparkle with my metallic pan pastels. The candy canes  and sentiment are also on the Cd.

Thanks for stopping by!

Samples for Polkadoodles on

Hi everyone. Some of us on the Polkadoodles design team have been working away behind the scenes getting samples ready for today's show on Create and Craft. It's always exciting getting a new collection and seeing what all my other team mates come up with. I'm sure I'll be amazed by their samples.

The first selection of samples comes from the brand new colouring therapy collection. It's is a fabulous concept. Adult colouring seems to be the 'in thing' at the moment but the great thing about this collection is it never ends. If you buy a colouring book, once you've coloured it, thats it! Well not anymore we can print over & over again also we can resize, print onto all different kinds of mediums so our colouring can be relaxing and therapeutic but also useful. From paper craft, gifts to home decor. Here are a selection of samples I made for the show.

1. A 6 x 6 card coloured with graph'it markers & lyra rembrandt pencils.


2. A key ring made using one of the alphabet digi's coloured with lyra rembrandt pencils glued onto stampbord & then triple embossed.

3. A 6 x 6 digi, coloured with graph'it markers & Sakura glitter pens in a white wooden box frame.

4. An A4 digi, coloured with lyra rembrandt pencils the bubbles are glazed with glossy accents and placed in a simple white frame.

The next collection is Serenity. She's such a cute little fairy I've used the digital download collection but you can also get her on CD Rom here.

5. I've jazzed up a box of confectionery to make it a more attractive gift. Using one of the backing papers, a pre coloured image and one of the cute sentiments.

6. A bright and bold 8 x 8 card with the digi coloured in with my lyra rembrandt pencils.

7. I went a bit bling tastic with this shaped easel but glitter and fairies go hand in hand don't they? This time I used one of the pre coloured images and a few die cuts for a pretty finish.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Please feel free to leave me a comment I do enjoy reading them.

Using A Die Cut

Morning folks. Its new challenge time over at Polkadoodles Blog. Time for you to use your die cuts. You have to look closely for mine as I used a nesting die as one of my layers but made my card all about the cutie pie Etty. Links to the collection are below. I've just added a bit of sparkle, ribbon & ink.

My Favourite Card Shape

I just adore an easel card, whether it be square, circle or twisted it just gives you that little something extra.....

My creation for the inspiration post over at Polkadoodles Challenge this week has combined a few different things for me including digi (pencils, glossy accents), CD Roms (papers & sentiment), Alcohol Markers (background), punches (flowers), die cuts (flourish, leaves, corners, shaped mat)

Close Up:

I've left the actual stopper blank as I thought it maybe nice to personalise it once I've decided who to send this card too.
