Gnometastic Cupcake Birthday Surprise

My card for Polkadoodles Digi Choosday today features Gnometastic Birthday Surprise and some pretty papers from the Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Paper Heaven 2 set in orange.  I've made a cupcake shaped card using my Silhouette cutting machine and added faux stitching around the papers.  As usual, I've watercoloured my image using Ranger Distress Ink Reinkers.

Inky Thanks

I've been using my Bundles of Blossoms background stamp again, but this time using blue and aqua coloured pads.  I blended some Distress Ink on white card and heat-embossed the blossom stamped image using white embossing powder.  I love this rich 'Cadbury Purple' coloured card to accent the aquas with a 'Thanks' die cut.  I rarely use sequins, but managed to convince myself to pop a couple on the corner for some sparkle.

Happy 40th

I was really pleased with how this card turned out for a friend's recent special birthday.  

I created the fabulous pop-up shape with my Silhouette and embellished it with a Birthday Gnome, balloons, bunting and die cut '40' numbers in contrasting colours.  I love making something a bit different for a special birthday.

  • Skin: Tattered Rose, Tea Dye, Worn Lipstick
  • Blues: Stormy Sky, Faded Jeans
  • Flame: Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge

Dragon with Bunting

At As You Like It Challenge this week we're asking if you like squares or circles, and looking back at my recent creations they've been mainly corners rather than curves, but if I really ask myself what I prefer, it's definitely circles. I like that they're softer than the harshness of a angle and I like the handmade quality of a shaped card. This Tattered Lace doily die is one of my favourites for circular cards because of all the lacy detail around the edge.





Water-coloured on Langton Watercolour paper with Ranger Distress Ink Reinkers:

  • Dragon: Prize Ribbon, Chipped Sapphire, Speckled Egg, Dusty Concorde
  • Ground: Tea Dye, Vintage Photo
  • Flags: Candied Apple, Barn Door, Aged Mahogany

Jasper the Halloween Kitty

For my Polkadoodles Digi Choosday project this fortnight, I've been making some little treat baggies for the ghosts and ghouls who visit on Hallowe'en this year.  My little treat bag is decorated with a cropped Jasper Kitty, and a sentiment from the Halloween Trick or Treat bundle. As always, my image is watercoloured using Ranger Distress Ink Reinkers.
