Anything Goes - Polkadoodles Crafting

Happy Friday Everyone!
Here today for 
*Anything Goes*
*Something beginning with F*

hmmmm something beginning F had to be flowers for me. My friend is celebrating her 70th birthday so I wanted to make something a little special. I chose the lovely lantern template from The Lavender Tea collection.
I have made this before and although it looks tricky it really is'nt . It also builds quickly the longest part for me is the decorating although I find that really enjoyable. I use lots of blue-tac until I am completly sure what is going where.

 It looks quite red in the photo's but its a really deep pink in real life. I used a really lovely pearl stock card.  I wanted to match the flowers in so I decorated using
 Lemonade Fizz collection.

 I think they work perfectly together. All that was added to finish were some pearls, a little lace hanging down, a few fern dies and a battery operated candle
Oh and of course a matching card
Thank you for looking

The Hummingbird Collection

Happy Sunday , It's a little dull here in the South West but very, very humid!
I have Simply Cards & Papercraft delivered each month
and when it was delivered the other day I could not wait to play
What a stunning Hummingbird collection we were well and truly spoilt

I am very afraid of frogs in real life but this little chap was yelling at me to use him
I decided I wanted to use nice fresh colours of green and yellow with white

I started with a 6 x 6 white card blank
Using the freebie embossing folder which is 5 x 5
Cutting a hole in the center
Mounted onto some fresh green cardstock

I added in some bakers twine and adhered all to cardbase

With a slightly smaller die , cut another smaller circle
and then the stamps came into play
I stamped the frog and the sentiment using Memento ink Bamboo Leaves
Using Water paints to colour up
(using blue I flicked about for some effect - not much I'm not that brave!)
I then used the fern stamp around the edge
and attached with foam pads

For the Flowers I stamped them twice, the underneath flowers are painted as are the leafs
For the top flowers I used Brusho's Yellow and lemon 
added a few tiny pearls once dry and a little yellow stickles

Finished of with some faux stitching, a few fern leafs from a fern die and a button
Thank you for looking have a great day

Fun at the Seaside - Polkadoodles Crafting

Happy Friday Everyone
What a mixed bag of weather we are having here in the UK
One place there is sun guranteed is at my Summer Chalet!
 I cut the Chalet on my portrait using one of Sandra's great files that you can find here
I added acetate to the front windows.
I cut this in kraft card as due to the size it needed to be nice and sturdy . The roof  I cut in corragated card. The lovely wooden paper used is from  Distressed Wood paper pack  and apart from some ribbon for curtains , I have used the amazing Starfish and Sandcastles collection to decorate.

Spot the little doggie wearing his amazing sun glasses!

 To say I am totally addicted to this collection is an utter understatement , I have another project in the pipeline from Starfish and Sandcastles to share in a few weeks time!

Messy Crafting - Polkadoodles

A very Happy Sunday
On my crafty road I have discovered Brusho's, I have dabbled with them in the last few weeks, using them on flowers and such but not on a big scale.
Soooooo here goes...Big Girls knickers pulled up and all that....

I made a trio of cards all trying Brusho's a slightly different way - I most definatly adore them. These are all on watercolour card
For all cards I used a mixture of the Daisydays Stamps and also Summertime Stamps collections. I used Memento Inks.

Card 1
I used Ultra Marine Brusho's and Blue water colour paint on the flowers. I used quick sprays of water on the Brusho's
(You can tell by card 3 I was more adventurous and was'nt bothered about spraying more that a dribble of water)

Card 2
This one I used Scarlet, Lemon and Yellow Ochre Brusho's with slightly more water than above
I used lemon and Orange water colour paints on the flowers

Card 3

This one I used Brusho's Turquoise, Lemon , Orange and Coalt Blue and soaked with water. The yellow circles I did with Pan Pastels . And painted flowers using a dull yellow , a grey and then a grey mixed with white.

You're entirely Bonkers - Polkadoodkes Crafting

Happy Saturday to you all
Yesterday I thought I would make a start on Christmas cards hmmmm I did say it was a thought!
I then found a template that I had not used I got from Sandra's some time back - Antique clock
It stands at 9 inches tall so I cut it using Kraft card as a base so it is nice and sturdy
I decided that Winnie in Wonderland would be fab to dress it up

So that was it using lots of elements and papers from the collection 
I had so much fun putting this together

I used silhouette cut for the white clock center , a pearl for the middle - some lace along the bottom
And that was it ....Time for Tea
