Digi Choosday Week 42


Hello All,

Well its another Digi Choosday, which means time for a fabby discount, so please do pop over to the blog so you can grab the code and treat yourself to some gorgeous crafty goodies. The theme as always is anything goes but the DT have been asked to make a card using Autumn Colours.

I have pulled out one of my Favourite Polkadoodles collections Winnie in Wonderland
I have really gone all out on this and pulled loads of elements together and I must say I had a complete blast ... I have used some of the papers, some toppers and some ephemera ... The edges have been hand stitched with gold thread, I have added a bit of black gesso to the background, everything has been edged with gold gilding wax and then completed with paint splatters.

Occasionally I make something I really love &this is one of those .... I think I will need to re create this one so I can have as a journal page & keep, lol!!

Hi All ... Its my turn to join in the fun at The Colour Crazy Challenge, this week we got to play with some images from Pickled Pot Puree - I used botanical Mini's
I have coloured up with Prisma Pencils and Gamsol ..... I'm kind of wishing I had stuck to my orginal idea of putting water colour in the background, instead of using the pencil ... think this is a technique that requires more practice from me.

I look forward to seeing all your colouring creations.

Polkadoodles Royal Peacock stamp soup - Unicorn Card

Hi All,

Here to share another Stamp Soup make with you ... I think there are still a couple of these stamp sets available on create and Craft .. so worth grabbing them if you can. You can also still watch the show here

This is a simple card, but one of my fav's that I created for the show ... I used a sentiment from the Ula cd and created a stylised unicorn from the stamp set .... I created the drips using indigo blu luscious powders then I added a few splatters ( cant craft without splatters at the mo, lol ) ... I then stamped the swirl under the sentiment and traced round it with gold pen to give it a bit of a shadow effect.

Polkadoodles Royal Peacock - Altered Shoe



Hello All,

Very exciting day for us at PD towers, Nikky had a fabulous show on Create and Craft .. You can still find the show available to watch here ... you have to check out Nikky's amazing peacock!!!

Stamp Soup is one of my favourite Polkadoodle products, and I can't quite believe that the very first samples I have ever made for a TV show were stamp soup ones!! eeeeeeeeeeek

So I started with an Altered shoe ... This was originally a bright pink shoe .... I used to bbe able to wear shoes like this all the time, now however I stick to flats!! I wore these not long after I had my daughter and fell while pushing the pram ... I have never worn them since ...

I covered the shoe in Black Gesso ... and with indigo blu slap it on I covered it with glitter, and then used it again to seal it .... I stamped with the soup down the side of the shoe with gold embossing powder. I then stamped on heat resistant acetate to create the scallops that go down the side of the shoe ... the butterfly on the back of the shoe & the dimensional flower on the front of the shoe, & finally I added gems round the edge of the shoe.

Lil Miss Mermaid and Dolphin


Hi All, sharing another Lil Miss Sugarpops make totay we have Lil Miss Mermaid with Dolphin I have coloured her up using copic markers.

I was originally going to make a simple card with the coloured image with a watercolour background, but it turned into a mixed media card.

I started off creating a background with brusho's and SN Sparkle pens ... I then did a bit of faux bleaching with water through a stencil. I then embossed using one of Leonie Pujol's embossing folders, and highlighted the detail using a guilding wax. The I added some little polkadoodle die cuts, lots of chunky glitter and some little glass beads.

Digi Chooseday Week 26


Hi All, Its Digi Chooseday again .. so please do pop over to the blog and grab the discount code so you can treat yourself to some yummy images. As always the challenge is anything goes, so I really hope you will join us as I love being inspired by your work.

This week the DT were asked to focus on the sentiment ... this is not my usual style of card,but I like the result, so its been good for me to get pushed out my comfort zone a little. The Sentiment and backing paper if from Winnie - Special Momments the little bit of stripy paper is from Octavia - Frosted Winter and the flowers are from Winnie - Sugar Sprinkles

I designed this card in Seriff CAP and printed of several layers so that I could build the design up, especially the flowers they have been decoupage up quite a bit and then covered with a sparkle pen.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Mailing A Letter


Hi All,

Back with another Lil Miss Sugarpops creation. This time I have used Mailing a Letter

I have done soooo much crafting recently, however not done much colouring, it felt soooooooo good to get my pens out again and have a play. I love this little sweetie, especially the big curls in her hair, just too adorable for words.

I created my own background paper using some stencils and distress inks and a little background stamp .. and added some little polkadoodles die cuts for a little decoration. and finally added a little sentiment using the Summertime Stamp Me collection.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Creative Fingers: Anything Goes
Crafty Catz: Anything Goes
Crafing With Friends: Anything Goes

Thanks for looking, crafty hugs

A Apple a Day



Hi All,

So excited that Nikki has released some more images in the Lil Miss Sugarpops range. Today I have used the pre coloured Apple A Day You can also get her as a Digi image here

If you are anything like me, this little image will be a life saver ... I have suddenly realised its the last day week of term and I am running round at last minute trying to get Teachers gifts organised. I used an Apple Chipboard shape I had and covered with papers and elements from Polkadoodles Winnie Fruit Punch collection  I then added some little sticky notes and a little loop to add a mini pen.

I haven't quite decided if this will go to a teacher or to my daughter who will have her Nursery graduation next week.

Digi Chooseday - Week 25


Hello All,

Welcome to another Digi Chooseday, that time of the week where Nikki offers a fabulous discount so you can have yourself a wee crafty treat :-) So please do pop over to the blog and grab yourself the discount code.

As always the challenge is Anything Goes however the DT have been asked to use more than one image .. I have always loved creating random scenes with lots of images .. before the world of digi stamps, I used to mainly do that with stamping and masking ... however the Digi world has opened a whole new avenue to play. I have taken images from Octavia Moonfly  and Stamp Soup - Little Kingdom to create this scene, I have coloured it all up using Copic Markers, and as the scene is so busy I decided to keep the card C&S just using a few polkadoodle dies to embellish.
