Boxes of snowpeople

Everything is square at the new challenge at Polkadoodles. We had to make a card with 4 squares. So I've got boxes of snowpeople.


The images have been coloured with polychromo pencils, then die cut to make them square. The background paper is from Winnie white Christmas printable papers 3. The sentiment is from Festive word art. 


I've decorated it with some die cut leaves and poinsettias.

I haven't made one of these cards for such a long time.

I had to make a card with movement in it for the latest Polkadoodles challenge so I made a waterfall card, it's takes me back to my early card making days.

 I've used the images from Winnie White Christmas cute christmas penguins. The backing papers are from Winnie Winterland paper heaven 5.

The images have been coloured with polychromo pencils. I've also added some ribbon and gems.

vintage postcard

I couldn't wait to try out this new stencil from Sweet Poppy
It's a postcard.

I've made all this distressed. Using distress ink to colour and distressing the edges of all the layers. The stamps are from Lavinia stamps and are all stamped in distress inks to give them the faded look. I have distressed the lace as well. The sentiment is also from Sweet Poppy. I was really pleased with the outcome So many other ideas for this stencil can't wait to do them.

Love my Dragon

Yet another month gone and it's time for the November challenge at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies.

Our sponsor is The Paper Shelter and this is one of their images called My little Dragon Army.

I've coloured it using Polychromo pencils. I have added some soft pink to make her a little bit girly. The lattice background is die cut I have cut a bit off the front edge so you can see the patterned paper inside and offset the image to overlap the edge. A pink bow and gems complete.
