Polka Doodles Christmas In July!!!

Firstly I must tell you all about the most fantastic competition going on at Polka Doodles!!! Get over there now to see how you could bag yourself some fantastic Aquamarkers from letraset the wonderful peeps that make Promarkers!!!

Right back to this weeks challenge! We have been set a challenge by Kris to make a Christmas card in July! I think the timing is perfect with the latest Polka Doodles CD that has just come out!! I have opted to use Nikky's fab fairy stamps to go with my xmas paper from the CD!!! I have used mt fav which is BevvieBoo, I just love her! I have stamped her using my Versafine Onx Black ink pad then I have coloured her in with Promarkers!!! To get the fab sparkle on the wings I have used stickles which I have recently fallen in love with!!! Bevvie has been backed onto a white piece of card which I have inked with a brilliance Dew drop ink. I have then matted it onto a piece of snowflake pattern paper from PB2 again this has been inked for added effect! I have used foam pads to give dimension. This topper was then added to aother piece of the pattern paper then added to an A5 tent card! The whole card was then finished off with ribbon and gems. I am now making this card one of my xmas designs this year, I think the fairy really suits Nikky's papers!!!

A Few Quick Additions!!!

My first addition today is a baby card that I have made using new arrival and indie arts! I have made it a bit gnarly!!! The second installment is some fimo brooches that I have made for Tracie who is a fellow doodler over at polka doodles!!!

Polka Doodles Week 28 - Stamp Away

This weeks challenge over at polka doodles was set by Lou. The challenge was to. . . deep breath. . . abandon our designer papers!!!! ARGH!!!!!! As soon as I recovered from the shock I decided that this was in fact a fab idea!!! We had to create our cards using nowt but stamps!!!! So I set to work with Gracie. I stamped her onto a scallop die cut and gave her a cute lady bug for company!!! Nest I just cut freehand some grass and then layered her up! I used my promarkers from Hobbycraft to colour her in, I decided to stick with red and black as they work so well together! The background is not so much stamped as it is punched!!! I used a circle punch to create a ladybug background for my card finished off with some fab ribbon again from Hobbycraft!!!

Birthday Card For Konrad!!!

June 17th was Konrads 32nd birthday! I always struggle with his cards as he sees what I do everyday, but I am pleased with this years effort!!! It is more skulls shock horror!!! They have been cut on the cricut using Indie Arts and stamped and inked around the edges but to be a bit different I have used my tonic studios butterfly punch and punched some from an old copy of Mid Summer Night's Dream ( think it is an old copy from Konrads school - it has a library stamp inside ) oh well at 32 I don't think he will be returning it now!!! the butterflies are backed onto some brown butterflies and finished with pink pearls!!! The inside is also stamped and inked but has been written in so there is no pic x x x

The CD is called Paper Boutique 2 - Creative Christmas. If you loved Paper Boutique then you will juat adore this! I have used 1 of the images that come pre coloured but they other 2 cards I used some of the other polka doodles papers to give peapole and idead of how else they can be used! The pressies are just so cool that they should not be limited to just xmas, so I used some papers from the all around and everywhere CD.
