Thank you

Happy Thursday to you all
Today I am sharing with you a little Thank you card recently made.

I started of making a 6 x 6 card blank in white pearl card 
I then cut a top mat just a little smaller in white cardstock and die cut where the sentiment was going to sit underneath.
I stamped the sentiment and then added the ribbons and using foam tape attached the top to the card base.
Then it was time to add all my die cuts , I just love all the white.
I added a few pearls and a little feather to finish
Thank you for looking

Pretty Little Flowers - Birthday Cards

Happy Monday Everyone, those weekends sure do fly past.
I made a couple of cards yesterday very similar but I think they look so different

I made the pink one first - In the photo it looks more red but its actually bright pink!
I used a lovely 6 x 6 Embossing folder , mounted onto pink cardstock and popped a ribbon on and adhered to a white card base
I die cut a pink center and a plain white circle
Then the fun part I stamped the swirls ( I just adore this stamp ), Sentiment and tiny hearts
which I coloured to match
The flower petals are very easy and you can make them using a small circle die or punch, a couple of folds and there done
I dusted round with pickled rasberry distress ink 
Popped them on the card with 3 little gems.

I loved the effect so soon got an idea to make another, made exactly as above but using black cardstock. I used Brusho's on the petals this time , Scarlet, Lime Green with lemon  and Orange
and kept these in clusters of 3's.

Thank you for looking

Embossing and Die Cutting

Ohhh I had great fun yesterday 
Since getting a portrait cutting machine I have become lazy with my dies , so yesterday out came my big shot and with a quick flick over with the duster, found my box of dies and off I set.
I found some stunning dies not even opened but they were must have's at the time I'm sure
I found a lovely rolling rose die from Sizzix, I had to try that one out!

I cut two card bases from 12 x6 from white card stock to make 6x6 cards - (I wish on hindsight I did 7 x 7 there was so much more I wanted to add)
Card 1
I used a lovely peacock embossing folder , it is so very pretty .
I used a circle die on the center
Matted onto blue cardstck
I then die cut some swirls and flourishes, Flowers leafs and butterfly.
The butterfly I cut twice so I could give it a blue center.
I then die cut a smaller circle and stamped on the sentiment.

Card 2
Again using a pretty 6x6 embossing folder - I adore this one it gives you so much room for the center.
I cut the clock out on my portrait 
The swirls and flourishes and leafs were die cut
and there are those beautiful flowers  I mentioned earlier.
I finished of with some baby blue pearls.
After finishing this card I thought it might make a lovely wedding card , changing the time to the time of the wedding , and popping there names into the center

Plain and Simple

Happy Saturday
It's a little cooler today in the South West of England, we have had a scorcher of a week so nice to get a little breeze and some cooler air.

This week I have been very frugal using lots of my scraps of paper/card from my box where I put any waste I have in it there is quite a lot of black , half sheets here and there so I pulled a couple of those out to use,

I started by cutting our 2 white card blanks 12 x 6 inches
Scored down the middle
I cut the black card   and matted up
then cut white card and matted that too
(I added a ribbon to the white card stock on card 1)

Card 1
I used a dandelion stamp (love dandelions) and stamped it twice using Tuxedo Black memento ink - The sentiment was also stamped in this - I then added those cute two little birds using Paris Dusk Memento ink . Added a few tiny pearls and card 1 was made

Card 2
I adore this stamp , simple but contains so much detail , I was going to colour it in but I loved the black and white look, so I stamped a butterfly and coloured that very pale pink with my Graph'It Markers, then added a few pearls here and there and a sentiment to finish off.
The main stamp and sentiment I used Tuxedo Black memento ink and for the butterfly London Fog Memento ink

Summertime - Polkadoodles Crafting

Happy Friday Everyone!
Here today for 

When I think of Summer I think of all the lovely flowers , so my project this week reflects that. I have used  for the pink card - papers from  Lemonade Fizz - The purple card papers from Lavender Tea - The blue card papers from Octavia Moonfly. The sentiment stamps you can find here

I used some plain buff cardstock for my card base .
I then printed off 3 A4 sheets (double sided) using the collections above onto white card
After cutting out the circles I needed for the flowers , I realised I had used less than half of it.

I hate the waste of such pretty papers, so decided on matching envelopes
Very easy and think they work so well with these cards.
I matted up my card base with matching card stock for my flowers
and after a bit of fiffing and faffing I had a trio of cards.
A nice little stamped sentiment and a pearl for each finished them off nicely.
