Love and Romance

Good morning everyone. I'm here today with some mid challenge inspiration for the Polkadoodles blog. The challenge which started last week is Love And Romance. Here is my make.
 I have used the pretty Rose Budd collection for everything on this. You can also get the image, Miss Charlotte as a clear stamp. I've cut out the balustrade and mounted it on 3D foam to make it look like she is stood behind it. I have used my Graph'It Markers to colour her.

Not a card.

Good morning and Happy Choosday everyone. Yes it's that time of the week, it's
So don't forget to go to the Digi Choosday blog and grab your code for today before it expires!

We have a new challenge for you and we want to see creations other than cards. So get your creative juices flowing and make whatever you like. Here is my make.
Once again this was a bargain buy from Matalan, this one cost me £1 in the sale. And yes I did go back and get more of the hearts and more of these so you will probably see quite a few of them through the year lol.
So I have used different collections to create this. The embellies are from the Twiggy and Toots collection. And the paper and flowers are from the Eden collection. I've shaped all the flowers with a ball tool and added some pearls to the centres of them.

Mini Shutter 4

Good morning again. As promised I'm here to share my last Tattered Lace design team make with you using the fab new Mini Shutter Die.

To make this one I cut out the card blank from Kraft card and the first layer of mats from some Gorjuss paper using the fabulous dies. I used some diestress ink around the edges of the card and paper. I added one of the embellies from the die set to the centre panel. I then added some Gorjuss decoupage and message panel and heart. Finally I made a bow using the Bow Maker and some Gorjuss ribbon.

Mini Shutter 3

Good morning again. As promised I'm here to share another Tattered Lace design team make with you using the fab new Mini Shutter Die.

To make this one I cut out the card blank and the first layer of mats using the fabulous dies. Before I glued them down I cut out the Thank You sentiment using a TL die that was on one of the magazines. I then cut out some of the little embellishments that come with the die set. Finally I added some decoupage from a My Paper Stash kit.
Come back tomorrow to see another card using these dies.

Mini Shutter again

Good morning again. As promised I'm here to share another Tattered Lace design team make with you using the fab new Mini Shutter Die.
To make this one I cut out the card blank and the first layer of mats using the fabulous dies. Then I stamped on a sheet of linen card using some Dreamees stamps, and then coloured then in using my Prisma pencils. I then used the second set of layering dies from the set and cut out from the sheet of stamped and coloured images. Finally I stamped some more flowers and cut and shaped them before mounting them on the card.
Come back tomorrow to see another card using these dies.

Tattered Lace mini shutter

Good morning all from a foggy and very frosty Leeds, brrrrrr! I thought it was about time I started blogging my Tattered Lace design team makes rather than just sharing them on Facebook. The fabulous new mini shutter dies were launched as part of the Pick Of The Day on Ideal World and Create And Craft last night. This is one my makes.
These concept dies really are worth their weight in gold, not only because they take all the faff out of the card, but the matting and layering is a breeze! Have you ever made one of these and then tried to add layers? I have and it was a total nightmare. This is soooo easy it's untrue. I have decorated this card with the What's Up Buttercup stamps from Polkadoodles. I have added a bit of colour with my Prisma pencils and added some distress ink around the edges.
Come back tomorrow and I'll share my next one.

Good morning and Happy Choosday again. This week the challenge over at the Digi Choosday Blog the challenge we have set is to add some stitching whether it be real or faux stitching. And here is my make.
I have used an image, a sentiment and papers all from the beautiful Serentity download collection. I have added faux stitching around the papers and the image for the challenge. I coloured the beautiful image with my Graph'It Markers. I made some rolled roses from the papers and added some die cuts to finish off the card.

Winter Birthday

Good morning bloggers. I'm here today with a new challenge from the Polkadoodles blog. The challenge we have been set is to make something for a winter birthday and here is my make.
I've changed the colours of some of the papers and embellishments from the Octavia Frosted Winter collection in the My Craft Studio program to dark winter colours. I then coloured the fab Oddella Bow image in with my Graph'It Markers to match the papers and embellies. I used the same markers to colour a white piece of card to use as a mat behind the image. I raised the embellies onto 3D foam. Just look how real the bow looks and it's card! Then I cut a sentiment and again coloured it to match. Finally I added some glitter to the foliage die and flower embellie to make it look like frost.
