Just a little abstract

 I would like to share a card I have made using a new stencil from Sweet Poppy stencils
called Abstract. This is something a little different for me.

I made a background paper using distress sprays. Then put white paste through the stencil. Then to be good and use up a pot of mixed glitters from other Sweet Poppy project, I've sprinkled that over the top.

Then I have cut that into 4, layered them and arranged them onto a patterned paper background. Finally I have wrapped some cord round the card with some going over the top and others underneath. A little arty I hope you agree.

Piper loves Poppies

The theme for the new challenge at Polkadoodles is to add something from the garden. 
I love Autumn colours so I thought I'd be seasonal as Autumn is here and the trees are changing colour.


I've used the Polkadoodles image called Piper. I've coloured her with Polychromo pencils. I've cut her legs out then die cut the rest of her in a circle so she looks as if she is sitting in the circle.


The patterned background is from the Polkadoodles paper set Trick or Treat Halloween papers 1 and the papers die cut in the circles is from paper sets Work and Play 3 and Twiggy and Toots 3.

 The Poppy seed heads are out of my garden and the wheat to add some colour. Finally the sentiment is from Winnie Celebrations sentiments 3. Some of my favourite autumn colours.

Joy to the World

Another bit of Christmas. Using my Wreath stencil from Sweet Poppy Stencils.

 This has been done using white stencil paste on black card. Then when the paste is dry I have coloured it with Copic pens. The sentiment is a stamp, also from Sweet Poppy, which has been embossed with gold embossing powder. I've added some red gems as berries on the wreath.

Happy Dog

It's time for a new challenge at the 2 Crafty Critter Crazies. Our sponsor this time is Stamp on it and this is one of their images called Happy Dog.

 I've kept it as another clean and simple design. The dog has been coloured with Polychromo pencils and I've just added a sentiment I made up myself. Quite a quick card really and he does look happy.

Trick or Treat

It's a little bit Halloween over at the Polkadoodles challenge today and they're going trick or treating. The theme is to create something to give away your goodies in.

I've used Boo the cat from the Horace and Boo collection. I've coloured him with Polychromo pencils and now he's a little black cat. I've given him a pumpkin button for company. Also die cut the word so Boo  is saying boo.


The bag is scored and folded from a piece of card that measures 9.5 by 8.5 inches. The backing paper is from Boo and Horace paper heaven 2 with distress ink highlights and a creepy spider on the back.
