Digi Choosday Week 41

This week for me has been so busy, with my day job and organising my Sons 8th Birthday party.

But that is the beauty of using Polkadoodles beautiful pre-coloured images, I can have a cute card made in 10-15 minutes.

So for this weeks Challenge we were asked to make a white card with a hint of colour and the images in the new Winnie White Christmas are perfect with their pastel shades.



I also used a backing paper, sentiment, tree and hearts from the collection (all cut on my Cameo) to bring my card together.

I finished by matting onto  turquoise card and adding a couple of snowflake embellishments.

Our challenges are always ANYTHING GOES and I look forward to seeing all your beautiful creations over on the Challenge Blog.

Digi Choosday Week 40

It's time for a new challenge at DIGI CHOOSDAY and this week the Design Team were asked to make something 'Black, White and one other colour'.  So I decided to go with different shades of blue.

I have chosen Fairy Christmas from Winnie Winterland.

I have wanted to make a shadow box for ages, so I used a basic cutting file from Silhouette and then designed some layers myself, finally adding a small set of led lights between the star layer and back panel.


I cut the sentiment in white vinyl and also added some die-cut Christmas lights.

Here is a lightened image below, so you can see the inside layers.



As always our challenge is ANYTHING GOES or you can join in with our theme.  There is also a fab discount code every Tuesday, posted on the challenge blog.

CAS at Aurora Wings

We are going all CAS (Clean and Simple) for our new challenge at Aurora Wings.



I picked the ever so adorable Winter Sprite to adorn my CAS card.



I began by choosing the sentiment from the silhouette store and changing it to a pale grey and to print only.

I also fussy cut my sprite with my silhouette and coloured her with Copics in the BV & R families.

I couldn't resist adding a couple of gems for a little sparkle.


I can't wait to visit you and see your CAS creations.

Happy Hauntings

We are not big in celebrating Halloween, but we always love to carve a couple of pumpkins.

This year with the new release of Polkadoodles Winnie Wednesday, which is adorable, I decided to make a little wall hanging to put up.

I used some of the Pre-coloured images and then created a little scene of the gang going Trick or Treating.  

I used Adirondack Inks for the background and some silhouette die cuts.

I cut the sentiment in Orange vinyl and will add come ribbon to hang up over Halloween.

Digi Choosday week 39

I have had so much fun making up this weeks DT card for Digi Choosday.

It is another christmas card, but the base I used was a design from Sandras Scrap Shop and is just perfect for my chosen image from Work and Play 5 - Festive Holybobs.

The colour scheme of Pink and Mint green was suggested to me by one of our Facebook members 'Margaret Ronan'.


I Coloured my image with Copics and added some pearl and flower embellishments and also some lovely mint green lace.


I hope I have inspired you with an alternative Christmas colour scheme and look forward to seeing you at the challenge blog, which is always ANYTHING GOES.

Winnie Wednesday Halloween

Have you seen the cute new Halloween images at Polkadoodles  - Winnie Wednesday Halloween.

They come in both coloured and B & W and have some fabulous papers and sentiments to match.

Usually I colour my images, but time is short this week and that is the beauty of Polkadoodles and the pre-coloured images.

So todays card was uber quick, using a paper, sentiment and pre-coloured image, together with a couple of elements form the Silhouette store and an Organza Bow.
