Winnie Sunshine Delights

For the start of my card I decided to do a slimline card so I could make it look like a party was going on.  ðŸ•ºðŸ»  LOL!!  I printed one of stunning design papers from the Eden Collection on Ultimate Graphic 160gsm paper.  This paper is ASTOUNDING!!  I insert the pages into a Word doc and I don’t edit anything.  Just print it, as the color looks gorgeous on this paper.  I highly recommend it! 👍🏻


I love the new Winnie Sunshine Delights Top Banana Bundle ðŸŒž so much that I wasn’t satisfied with coloring up only one image from this amazing collection so create a scene I did!!  I’ve used Sunshine Delight BouquetSunshine Delight CheekySunshine Delight Cutest and Sunshine Delight Delicious.  If you’re interested in all the pretty gals you can find the whole set here - 10 printable black and white digi images (but honestly, grab the bundle it’s so awesome).  ðŸ˜œ




Of course I couldn’t just keep it with the girl images themselves so I added some flowers, bumble bees and butterflies from the Embellishment bundle but guess what?!!  You can buy the whole bundle OR you can buy the embellishment bundle separately which comes with the precolored AND black and white files.  Isn’t that great?!!  ðŸ˜®ðŸ¤“


I didn’t want to add too many embellishments as I wanted the images to be the main attraction. I added a few flowers and used the Super Sprigs die to add some green leaves. I think this is my new favorite die.  ðŸ¥°  I’ve used Prismacolor pencils to color on the kraft paper and have to admit I’m super happy with the way it turned out!  

Have you ever colored using pencils or Copics on kraft paper?  Did you like it?

I hope you are all keeping well!!! 
Thanks for coming by!  ðŸ’•
Hugs, 
Eulanda

It's All About the Journey

Today I'm sharing a video on how to create some foam flowers using a Polkadoodle's Flower Flourish Die.


I've used this sweet polymer stamp called It's All About the Journey and paired her up with PD's Soft & Scrumptious 6 x 6 paper pack.  I layered the image atop the 


Aren't these white and peach colored foam flowers just so delicate and pretty?


I've added some extra pieces from my stash and popped in a white shabby seam binding bow.


I grabbed this sentiment from Sentimentals 6 x 6 pack and die cut using one of the Posydoodle Tags from that set.  I also add this LOVE bling from my stash. 


And here's my video!!  I hope you enjoy it!
*Well I've just realized the video volume sounds like it has static.  I am working on that to try to resolve the horrible noise.  Urgh!  Love/hate relationship with technology!

Winnie Big Bunch

Today's card showcases "Big Bunch" from the Winnie Celebrations 1 collection in a black and white image or pre-colored.  You should check out this collection.  WOWZA there are some amazing images, sentiments, awesome digital papers and more!  😮😍



Although this collection has some great papers in it, I chose to play with a newer paper pack called "Timeless Rose" and that pad comes in 6" x 6".  Soooo pretty!!   And Timeless Rose is just yet another amazing collection of crafty stuff including stencils, dies and clear stamps!!  Check it out!!  Eeeeeeeeeek!!  hee hee  When you see a whole collection of items, do you like to have everything or just bits and pieces?



And here are my Foamiran flowers using the Flower Flourish die - this die comes with 6 different layering dies but 2 styles.  I will share a video on this soon so stay tuned for that!  They are fun to use and easy to mix with other flowers you have in your stash.  I love the texture and height they add to a card but then again, that's what my cards are all about anyway.  LOL!!


And just another look at all my goodies:


Thank you for stopping by!  I hope you and yours are keeping safe!
Sending warm germ free hugs,  🤣😍

Moooove It Mini Shaker

I made these cards quite some time ago but found this post in my drafts.  How could I not share this?!!  😮   They're great idea's for father's day and birthday cards.  I used my Silhouette to cut this card shape.  It took a bit of fiddling but worked out great after all!  😁


And colored the cows with my copics.

Using LED's for a Card

Today I'm sharing a video on how to enhance a card using LED light's!


This "Surprise!" image is available as a clear stamp (named "Boo"), black and white digi and even a pre-colored version!  I've colored it using my Prismacolor pencil crayons and added some fun patterns to the balloons and his party hat for some texture.

I've used the gorgeous and stunning Adalene French Vintage Shabby Chic 6 x 6 paper's.  They are soooooo pretttttttty....and I've added my usual array of flowers and embellishments including some burlap butterflies.


And here it is all lit up!!!  


Here is my video to see how I've done this.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you're all staying safe!!  
Hugs💕

Stamping Bella

I love Stamping Bella images and have for sooo many years!!   When they first came out I just couldn't stop buying them. They were FUN and a lot more simpler than they are now but then same goes for my card and here's a few examples.  Don't you just giggle at yourself looking back and seeing years of growth?   It's fun!


HA HA HA look at that simple layering!   Hardly any embellishments, which to me now, is extremely hard to not add and almost foreign!  🤣🤣  I will say tho, there is a special skill to making CAS cards look good and many have the knack .... just not me.  LOL!


Well that was a fun blast from the past but fast forward to the new images and one the new lines from Stamping Bella called "Curvy Girls" and this particular one is "With a Jar of Hearts".  Isn't she just the sweetest?!!  💕


I'm sure you can tell that I've colored her using my copics and TRIED to make glass see through to the dress...tricky!!!!  I'm still practicing.  LOL!


Don't you just love my new little blue .... ummm I don't even know what this is.  LOL!!  Wheat?  I doubt it but some kind of weed anyway.  I just thought it would look cool on a card and I did like the way it turned out.  I added some gems from my stash and voila!!  Done!


Thanks for popping by!!!  I hope you're all keepin' safe.  💕

The Greeting Farm - Grocer & Cashier

I just wanted to thank our local grocer people for showing up every day and The Greeting Farm had some great digi’s for that!   On the inside the card says "Cuz we like to eat"...LOL!


These images are Cashier B and Grocer A which I've merged by using Word.  



I even added a little grocery cart that I cut using my Brother Scan 'n Cut.  Cute!!  

So grateful to be able to say thank you in this way.  The Greeting Farm continues to add more fun digi images to their site for us to play with.  A way of accessing instant gratification, especially for someone like me who lives in Canada.  Normally, I would have to wait for weeks before having clear stamps arrive so I love this option.  

What inspiring idea's have you used to say thank you?  I might need to borrow one or two.  💕😁

Keep safe everyone!
Hugs,
Eulanda

Winnie Graduation PD

WOW what a different year for grads!  👨🏻‍🎓👩🏻‍🎓  Today I am sharing a grad card because even tho the ceremonies and celebrations are off (hopefully only postponed) doesn't mean we still can't make a special grad card.  💖



Isn't she pretty?!!!  I love how you can customize any digi with special colors for different events or people.  And even better?  "Graduation You Passed" is available in the normal black and white line art but also pre-colored as well as a pre-colored ethnic option.  FABULOUS choices I think!  😁


I added some chipboard balloons 🎈 but covered them with a really ultra thick embossing powder to make them pop a bit more.  I figured I needed a tassel embellishment but I don't have a lot of gold or yellow in my stash.  It's just not my go to color for making anything but I did find some thin Dollar Store ribbon!!  Woo hoo ok well,  then MAKE ONE!  That's the great thing about being a crafter right?


Great embellishments to add on a grad card are always stars.  ✨  I will mention they are also great for any masculine cards as well.  



Congratulations to all the grads this year. 🎉🎈🎊 I'm so sorry that things have gone the way they have and I really hope you end up getting some kind of function to celebrate with all your friends and family.  It's truly an amazing time in your life and one that you've worked at for over 12 years so you deserve something!

Take care of yourselves out there! 💕
Hugs,
Eulanda

Winnie - Ice Cream Treats

Using sentiments isn't something I did much of, prior to being on the DT at Polkadoodles but the Posydoodle Tags and Sentimentals make it so much easier!!!


I chose to use one of the newer paper pads called Vintage Candy.  One of the papers is full of butterflies so I fussy cut all of these ones but then I scanned, traced and cut the teal colored ones using my Brother Scan and Cut.  I popped those together with glue and curved the wings to add more dimension.



Aren't they pretty?!!


Here are some pieces that make up the base of my card.  I've used the largest die from the Elegant Nest set and then ran it through an embossing folder.  Then I added my image using some foam tape for even MORE dimension!  I found a nice border die from my stash as well as some pretty ribbons for layering.


This little cutie is called "Ice Cream Treats" and I've used the clear polymer stamp.  Check at your local stockist or scoop up (no pun intended 🤣🤣) the black and white digi version from the store. 


Then I went crazy with my embellishments from my stash.  I've popped another dimensional butterfly atop my bouquet and snuck in a shabby chic bow under it all.


I hope you've enjoyed my treat card today!

Thanks for stopping by,
Hugs,
Eulanda

Ruby Gift

Good day!  Eulanda here and it's my turn to show how I use my Brother ScanNCut for a background layer behind my die.


I absolutely ADORE dies and that is one thing I will NOT give up even tho I have a Brother Scan and Cut AND a Silhouette machine.  Dies are so nice and easy to just grab, throw through your cutter and voila!!  However, what I LOVE that I can do, is put a background behind any die that I use as shown here.  On the left side, I have die cut the new Oval Trellis Die and stuck it on to my cutting mat and then had my ScanNCut scan it first.  Next, on the right, after making my proper selections, I sent the image to be cut with some white cardstock to fit in behind my die.


Here is the white layer you see behind the Oval Trellis Die and it's a perfect fit!  I've used Nikky's AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME Ultimate Graphic 160gsm paper to print out some patterns from the Eden Collection - Paper Heaven 1-10.  I can't say enough about how amazing this paper is to print on.  A photo just doesn't do it justice but be it the printable selections in the store or the patterned paper it's totally worth it!!  



For this birthday card I've used Ruby Gift digi but also available is Ruby Gift  - the precolored image, which is perfect for a quick card!  I also added a saying from the Perfect Wishes sentiments clear stamp set.


Isn't this little bouquet just so pretty?!!  I have my wax cord and seam binding bows under a few flowers and a little happy birthday charm I found in my stash.  Woo hoo!


I die cut this pretty butterfly from the Butterfly Trio set, from some pretty silver foil paper then popped a Tim Holtz nib, flower and little colored pearl on top.


I hope you like my card for today!!  I felt like I stretched my mind with this one.  I have no idea why, do you get some of those?  Thank you for stopping by!

Hugs,
Eulanda

Winnie - Sky's the Limit

Today I've decided to share a slimline card with you, which I am LOVING but you really have to think about how to fill space vertically!  😮



Here I've cut my base then rolled the scalloped slimline die through my die cut machine.  Next I cut my cloud patterned paper is from Work & Play 1-10 Paper Heaven.


Here are all my layers adhered together and I used foam pop up dots to build height on my card.  I love dimension!!


I picked papers from the Mermazing Ocean 6 x 6 paper pad to use for my grass and sun elements.  Also for layering my sentiment from Sentimentals 6" x 6" paper pack.  It comes with sooooo many sentiments it makes picked out the perfect saying super easy!  The Posydoodle Tags are a perfect addition for the sentiments as it comes with 5 different tags for you to choose from.  

I also cut some tree's for my forest from the Iced Branches die set and added the leafs from thew new Super Sprigs die.  Oh I think you're going to see a lot of that on my cards going forward.  What a handy die!


I've colored Winnie using my copics and this image is called Sky's the Limit, which you might be able to find at your local stockists as it does come as a clear polymer stamp.  If you can't find it there, it's in in the store in black and white and precolored, which some days is super handy if you need a quick card.



I hope you've enjoyed my card for today!!  I certainly enjoyed making it!

Have a crafty day!
Hugs,
Eulanda

Winnie - Christmas Bauble

Last year I managed to have most of my cards created on time for a stress free card making season.  It was GLORIOUS!  So here I am starting again and there are MANY wonderful images and papers in the store to help with year round Christmas creating!


There is a wonderful selection of papers in the store but for this card I've use a sheet from each craft paper pads, Ho Ho Ho Christmas and Ho Ho Gnome.

This is Winnie Christmas Bauble, which is a clear polymer stamp available at your local PD stockists and in the Polkadoodles store from the Winnie White Christmas collection.  OH MY GOSH have you seen the other images in this collection?!!  Eeeeeeeeee so super cute!!  


I've added some flowers, sisal under all the embellishments and popped on a few white wooden snowflakes.  I even created a couple springs using some wire from my stash.  I wrapped it around a shaping tool that looks like a pencil that had a bit bigger shaft but you can use anything!


And for this fun card I even added a light that turns on by pushing the pom pom on her hat.


To me, Christmas seems so far away but all of a sudden when you're not looking BAM!!  It's tomorrow!!  Do you create your Christmas cards year round?

Happy creating!
Hugs,
Eulanda
