Snow White

I was itching to colour this little sweetie when she landed on my doormat and I've kept the layout really clean and simple to let her take the limelight.  I was really pleased with how she turned out, especially cos she was made for my bestie, so she needed to be what I call 'a warm-glow card'!

  • Greys: Hickory Smoke, Black Soot 
  • Skin: Tattered Rose, Tea Dye, Worn Lipstick, Aged Mahogany
  • Greens: Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn
  • Sky: Tumbled Glass

Rudoph

For this week's Digi Choosday at Polkadoodles I've made an acetate panelled Christmas card featuring Rudolph. I love his cute little face peeking out from underneath that fluffy Santa hat!  I've die cut some snowflakes and stuck them onto the acetate and dry-embossed some snowflakes on the white frame too.  I've 'fussy cut' Rudolph out with my Silhouette so he looks like he's standing on the frame.  I've also popped an insert behind the panel so the text doesn't show through the acetate front when I write the card out.



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

  • Fur: Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, Vintage Photo, Gathered Twigs 
  • Greens: Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss
  • Reds: Candied Apple, Barn Door, Aged Mahogany
  • 'Whites': Hickory Smoke

Bear Hug Tag

I really love making these supersized tags. They're great as a change to making cards, and lovely to use to decorate a present for someone special.  I've made the base shape myself using a stitched rectangle and oval stax die.

Pawty Time

I recently made a 2021 planner for my bestie and I will admit that designing all the pages took me some time (in fact, I could have made good use of a planner in order to plan my planner!).  Anyway, I've decided to make the most of the design work and make a second one. 

I'm decorating each month with a water-coloured image and am sharing one of the pages with you today.  

It's all bound together with some blue Zutter wires and some mountboard covers, decorated in pretty papers.  I've added in some fun pages, like the 'Movies to Watch' one you can see here, and some crafting essential pages like 'Shipping Tracker' and 'Craft Stash Wishlist'.  I will share some other pages with you as I complete them.



Here's a close up of the image, using a couple of the stamps from the MFT Pawty Time set.




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

  • Kitten: Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, Vintage Photo, Gathered Twigs
  • Puppy: Antique Linen, Frayed Burlap, Walnut Stain
  • Grass: Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss
  • Sky: Tumbled Glass
  • Yellows: Scattered Straw, Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed
  • Reds: Candied Apple, Barn Door, Aged Mahogany
  • 'Whites': Weathered Wood

Scruff Gardening

I really like the Fuzzypuff images from Polkadoodles so for this week's Digi Choosday I've used Scruff the Dog Gardening. I've coloured him no-lines-ish and kept the design simple with an ornate circle frame and easel shaped cardbase.  The papers are freebies from the Nikky bundle, and I've die cut a simple typed sentiment. It's about as masculine as I get, so there are no frilly bits!
