Love you winnie

Hello again I’m back with another make from this GORGEOUS new collection from polkadoodles  I am loving this Winnie collection it’s just so cute!!

For this card I have made an A5 card this time and kept it CAS (shock gasp how did you do that lol) I know but I managed somehow hehe

So I used just a small slip of paper for the edge then coloured the image (huggy bear) with my prisma pencils, the sentiment comes with the collection as well then I made some card candy to embellish the card and there you have it

So there you have my 2nd card for this collection I do hope you like it and I will see you tomorrow with another

Rocco go explore

Hello I super excited to be part of this fabby new release everyone loves Winnie, who can resist her and Rocco they are adorable together or apart.
So I will get straight on to my card today I have decided for my first card to make a boy’s card I don’t often make male cards unless for family members and when I saw some of the images in this download collection they were just to adorable not to use.
So my card is 8x8” (yep you know) the papers are from the collection as well(link below) I distressed the edges and inked with distress inks. While I was printing the papers and image I went into the embellishment folder and printed off 2 of the arrows as well then embossed them with coloured embossing powder to give them a shine and make them a little stronger then I glued them onto the back of paper clips and attached to the paper a great embellishment I think 

The image is called Rocco exploring and that gave me an idea for the sentiment so I printed this at the same time as the image as I wanted them both together, that’s the great thing about digital stamps as adaptable. You do get loads of quotes and sentiments with the download though.
I coloured the image with Prisma pencils then masked the image off to make the background and inked with distress ink.

So there you have my first card for this collection I do hope you like it and I will see you tomorrow with another

Anything goes with a die (polkadoodles)

Good morning crafty friends I’m back with another make for the new challenge over at Polkadoodles. As always for you guys it’s anything goes but for us we have been asked to use a die with our makes.
For my card I have used the new(ish) release Ula’s life collection and image be yourself which I have coloured with a mix of Polychrome and Lyra pencils. 

The papers are from the Octavia collection I decided to do for black 7 white with a pop of pink, then I used some toadstools from the Winnie in wonderland collection.

 I used the toadstool die which I cut out a couple of times to across the middle of my card these dies from Nikky are just amazing to use no problems with them cutting at all just like a hot knife through butter. 

To finish the card I made a large floppy bow I have done a little pic tutorial on how I do these bows as I was asked by someone how I make them (hope it helps I haven’t mastered the art of making videos yet lol)(pics below)
So there you have my card for today hope you like it and I will soon with another make.

So for the floppy bow you will need a good length of ribbon for this one I have used 3 colours

Make different size bows (just plain normal bows) with the ribbon until you have about 4 or 5 and still have a length left to tie in the middle.

Singe the edges of the ribbon with a lighter if you’re using organza ribbon to stop it from fraying

Then with a hot glue gun start sticking the bows together on top of each other (it doesn’t matter if they go a little wonky) just make sure that you have the larger bows at the bottom

When they are all down you then need to add the longer length piece around the middle and tie at back for your tails and cut to correct size.

Then all you need to do is add whatever you want for the centre piece at the front knot For this one I added a button but you can add a brad if you prefer.
