Hi there, well this week's challenge for Polkadoodles is Summer Birthdays. I thought I would make something that reminded me of summer - Strawberry Jam! I love Strawberry Jam. I can't actually put some Strawberry Jam on the Challenge, but I have made a card instead! I cut a piece of acetate 10 x 5, scored it in half, cut the shape of a the jar lid, rounded the corners to make it look more jar shape.
Printed off some dotty paper from the Bonbon Belle CD Rom available from www.polkadoodles.co.uk in the lime section, and also printed off some strawberries in the embellishment section. Edged the dotty paper using a punch, covered the top of the card, wrapped some dotty ribbon around the top, cut out two labels using a Just Rite die, added a sentiment, cut out the strawberries and adhered them to the front and inside the card. Voila!
Another card - I know! But this is so cute. This is a digi image from Mo J Manning, called Spit Happens. I coloured with Graph it Markers and made the card using Spellbinder Grand Dies, buttons, ribbon and pink and kraft cardstock. x
Our Challenge from Polkadoodles this week was to make a card out of scraps! Well that was easy! Have boxes of scrap paper and card!!! So I found a shaped card that was in one of my scrap boxes, and the two other pieces of paper which are from the Double Sprinkles CD Rom from Polkadoodles of course. Also the sentiment was amongst my other scrap box of sentiments. It matched perfectly! I matted the dotty paper on a piece of blue cardstock, wrapped a piece of hessian ribbon around it, adhered it to the card and inked around the edges with my Pan Pastels, added a paper flower and that is it, simple but cute!
This is my colour inspiration entry. I love this pastel green from my new Graph it markers, so I decided this is all I need to colour this lovely image from Sherri Baldy "My Besties in the Garden" CD Rom. I cut her out, put her on a butterfly embossed background and then matted it at a jaunty angle on a piece of scrap paper from my crafty stash (which is printed from one of my Polkadoodle CD Roms), die cut a butterfly, added a bow and ladybird x
Hello from a rare Sunny day in Germany, we have not had many this year! So today I am posting some of the images I have coloured from the Sherri Baldy - My Besties in the Garden CD Rom. As Sherri quoted when I posted them on her facebook page "They are so Dang Cute!" I used my Graph it marker pens to colour them, I have only a few but my collection is growing!
