Polkadoodles Flying High

Today I'm sharing how I've used stencils to create the shaker box layer. 

In order to create the base I've used some Ultimate Graphic 160gsm paper pack and printed a design paper from the Eden Collection - Paper Heaven 1-10 digital craft bundle and cut with a scalloped slimline die.

I started the shaker creating a heart filled sky by using distress oxide inks and the Hearts & Circles Layering Stencils like this:

Layer 1 - Circle stencil with Spun Sugar

Layer 2 - Larger hearts with Kitsch Flamingo

Layer 3 - Small hearts using Picked Raspberry 

I then added my shaker contents and some clouds so I could pop my image right on top.  I coloured up You're Flying High digi stamp using my copics then adhered a double layer of foam tape to really make her pop.  She's also available pre-coloured for those occasions when you might not want to colour or need a quick card!

The saying was created using 2 stamps from the Super Sentiment stamp pack that contains 49 clear polymer stamps.  Tons of great words to create any sentiment for your projects!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Stay crafty!!

Gnome-tastic Strawberry Dream

Today I am sharing a shaped card for you featuring an image from the Gnome-tastic digi collection.

I knew when I saw this image that I wanted to create my card with some greens and reds without making it look like Christmas.  (Not easy! 🤣)  Those strawberries are just far too luscious not to feature.  I picked a few papers from the Octavia Moonfly - Paper Heaven 4 digi collection using Ultimate Graphic paper and cut this pretty shapely card using my Silhouette. 😀

This image is "Strawberry Dream" and available in digital black and white, pre-coloured light and deep skin along with svg and dxf files.  I've coloured the image using my copics (combo's listed below) and added a cute little wood table for him.  I think he's getting ready to make some strawberry shortcake and maybe freezer jam!!  Nom nom!!!  🧑🏼‍🍳🍓

I've paired this card up with a sentiment from the Gnome-tastic Sentiments collection and WOW what a collection this is!!!  You get 25 sentiments and some of them would be perfect to actually use as a focal piece!  Hmmmm...well now, that gives me an idea!!  I think I should try that myself!!  LOL!!  I've used PD's Posydoodles Basic tags to create 2 layers to my sentiment, one black layer and then the white sentiment layer.  I curled it a little in the middle so it pops out and then curled the tail end the opposite way so it looks like kind of a wave.  I also popped a few foam dots right in the middle between the black and white layers to give it even more dimension.  

I wanted a couple of embellishment strawberries so added 2 die cut ones using corrugated glitter paper.  I've had that in my stash forEVER so it was nice to finally use it.  Oops!!  LOL!  Ooooooo it's so pretty in real life!!  I really am the kind of person who "what I see I use" so if something is hiding, unfortunately it doesn't get used.  Do you have this happen to you as well??  Yup I really needed multiple sheets of it!!  🤣🤣🤣

I hope you're enjoying this collection as much as I am!!  So super cute and nice to have the gnomies in digital form.  Gotta love that instant gratification!!  

Thanks for stopping by today!
Hugs!  🥰

Polkadoodles Horace & Boo - Surprise

Today I'm sharing this adorable outdoor birthday scene starring Horace & Boo!

This Horace & Boo - Surprise polymer stamp is also available in digi form.  As you can tell by the image, I've added a whole outdoors landscape using my Prismacolor pencil crayons.  I think I'm living vicariously through my scenes.  🤣🤣

I popped up the image on the Squarey Swirly Hearts die and used papers from the the Hearts & Happiness 6" x 6" paper pack.  This pack contains such pretty subtle peaches and blues and just perfect for those spring and summer projects.

I created the the saying using the Super Sentiments collection that comes with 49 clear polymer stamps.  So easy to make up any saying for every day and occasion cards!  I added a few wooden stars that I painted with some gesso to create more of a shabby look.

Thought I would add a layer of lace topped by some peach rhinestone lace to just finish off the card.

Are you starting to creating those spring/summer/easter cards now too?

Thanks for stopping by today!

Maggie Gnome Ladybug Walk - Twistoon

When I saw this digi image created by Lisa at Twistoon I knew I had to colour her up!!

The image itself is called Maggie Gnome Ladybug Walk and I've coloured her with copics.  

Here is the original image so you can see how much of a scene I've created.  It was fun and such a super cute gnome!!!  😀 Also she's having a huge 50-70% off sale this weekend!!  😳

Hope you are all having a wonderful Easter weekend and just maybe getting in some crafty time!
