Polka Doodles Week 20

This weeks challenge over at Polka Doodles has been set by Fliss and tha challenge was to make something with mum in mind and use the colours orange ( or peach ) and blue! No anyone who knows me will know that my Mum and I do not speak ( long story for another day ) so I have used my Nan as my inspiration! She is amazing! She is still a dinner lady at 72, she still finds time to do everything for everyone and she still looks amazing, she looks younger now than she does in the picture!!! I found this fab pic of her with me when I was younger ( I am not much taller now he he! ) and I happen to be wearing a peach dress! So I decided that this was the time to go nuts and make a scrapbook page!!!

The page is 8" x 8" and tha base is co-ordinations cardstock which I got reduced at HobbyCraft. The orange gingham is from All Around and Everywhere. I have stamped the corners and inked along the edges of the page for some added texture. The flowers I love and to make them I printed out some of the small blue dotty paper from the same CD, I cut 16 small scallop circles with my nesties and inked the edges with a darker blu ink. Next I used my newly purchased Tim Hotlz mini misters and saoked them with water ( note to self - next time wait for the ink to dry ) then I scrunched them all up into tiny wet balls. Before they dried I carefully unwrapped them and layered them up into 2 piles of 8. I secured them all together with a brad and did a bit more scrunching ubtil they looked like flowers!!! When they were all dry I just added some stickles for some sparkle! The word Nanny has been printed form All Around and Everywhere, I printed some more blue dotty paper than printed the alphies onto that then just punched them out with a 1" circle punch! The picture has been die vut with nesties and layered up and for a finishing touch I made a swirl using shades of blue eyeleys!!! Phew and relax!!!!

Fimo Poop!!!

How cute is my poop!!!

Twilight Scrapbook Page

I have had this page sat on my desk for a few months now and always felt is was missing something! Then I gound this awesome digital stamps from the greeting farm and knew he was what was missing!!! No I coloured him in before I had my promarkers but for a first attempt he is so cute! My very own sparkly Edward!!! I am so emo when it comes to twilight!!! The page is 8" x 8" it is black card with red layered ontop. I have stamped and inked the red layer. I have cut a smaller piece of red card and stamped and inked this also. Onto this I have put a shimmer card which has been embossed with divine swirls. To finish off I have used some eyelets and treaded some red ribbon through! The only thing missing is the wedding photo of Edward and I.

Polka Doodles - Summer Blossoms

This weeks challenge over at Polka Doodles has been set by Brenda!!! She has asked us to use summer blossoms as our inspiration! I have been struggling as it is wet and overcast as i look out my craft room window!!! But I have been inspired once again by the latest CD which is all round and everywhere! I have choosen to use a blue and brown theme this week! The flowers are smaller versions of the pumpkin I made last year, they are super easy to do, all you need is a scallop circle die or punch and some glue!!! I have added some brown leaves that I rescued from and old brooch that was destined for the bin and I have added some beads in wire for some bling!!! Please pop over and join in with us!!!!

Bevvie's a Fairy!!!

I thought while I am trying new things ( promarkers ) I thought go on give this whole masking malarky a try and here it is!!! BevvieBoo now with wings!!!

First Polka Doodles Stamp!!!

Well I must admit that I have had these stamps for a few weeks now and this is my first card that I have made!!! My colouring is not great so I have been practising before I made Nikkys fab stamps look poop!!! This fairy is my fav she is called BevvieBoo and she is so cute! Now she has a bueatiful butterfly that she comes with whixh you can use to give her wings but for my first card I decided babysteps!!! This is a C6 card which I have decorated with some elements from an old QVC kit I had hiding in my stash, I inked the edges of the flowers and the sentiment for a bit of depth! The butterfly is from tonic studio and I bought it at HobbyCraft. Finally Bevvie is stamped using versafine onyx black ink then I have used pro markers to colour her in! I only have one set so expect to see alot of purples until next payday!!!

Polka Doodles - Alter It!!!

This weeks challenge over at Polka Doodles has been set by Ruth! She has asked us all to alter something!!! I had seen this fab idea online which involves putting the ingrediants for cookies into jar as a gift, I loved the idea so I thought I would have a go myself! It was all going so well until butter fingers Stacey struck! I dropped my first jar and it smashed into a huge delicious glass covered mess!!! After spending a silly amount of time trying to locate all the chocolate chips ( they fly far ) I was overcome with panic! I had to find another jar which was larger than the first then i had to refil it!!! Well of course I had no actual cookie ingrediants left so. . . I had to make do. My jar contains among other things a whole layer of bi carb!!! But dont panic the chocolate chips are not the ones I picked up from the floor!!! Anyway after all that I had enough time to make a quick wrapper using the polka dot papers from the new CD All Around and Everywhere. I turned it into a corset at the back so the wrapper is easily removed and can be put onto something more edible! I finished it off with a cute round tag from the same CD! Wish me luck for next week guys!!! How I don't fall down more is beyond me!!!
