New release Heart on your sleeve January

Squeallllllll So Phil takes me to Doncaster yesterday to the Dame for the Stamp Magic fair. I spent a fortune, had a catch up with the lovely #Tracy Easson, then came home feeling very chuffed with myself about my new goodies but felling very worse for wear on the ear side of things. I’m really struggling again today in so much pain but hey ho I will go to these places x

So when I got home Nikky (#polkadoodlescraft) asked if any of us DT girls were sick of Christmas makes yet I said yes (even though I have hardly started to get any done) so she sent us some images and eeeeeeeekkkkkkkkkk I know I say it all the time but OMG they are the best. I do love images with big eyes that you can colour and bring to life they just make the image and January has the biggest soft eyes.
So to me she screamed out Mixed media so after a short gloat of my new stash I started to colour her in.

Then I got to work on the canvas giving a quick coat of gesso and crackle paste.
I added texture paste (homemade) to some of the new stencils I got from Tim Holtz and paperartsy  then added starlight paint distress stains and Brushos (never used before but LOVE them)

I used some scrabble letter tabs to spell the word heart distressed a little the added a painted mdf heart with some threads
I fussy cut the image out and added to the finished canvas  
Hope you like it and I will see you soon with more January makes

Halloween Theme Winnie Wednesday and CANDY!!!!!!

Well Blimey the time flies around here it’s time for a brand new challenge this week at Polkadoodles and as per usual for you it’s anything goes but for us DT gals the theme is Halloween (BOO)
Now I don’t do Halloween cards I just can’t get into it the whole kids knocking on your door (Barr humbug!!!!!! I know I’m evil) so I decided to make it into a Halloween birthday card well people are born on the 31st October (Pretty special people to I might add well one in particular x)
Any way like I said today I have some great candy for you full details are at the bottom of this post so if you're interested keep reading!!!

So for this card I  made a black 8x8” card blank and have used The Winnie Wednesday Halloween collection she is Adorable the papers are fab too!!!!!! You also get some great sentiments to go with them all

I did use a Clip art bat and the spooky wording from my stash as embellies which I just embossed with some clear embossing powder and added to the card with some acetate.

I coloured the image with polychrome and prisma pencils and made the background for the image using black card stock and distress oxide inks (which is so much fun to do!!!) and there you have it.
Hope you like it and I will see you very soon with another PD make

Winnie Bat Dog

I am telling you I can’t get enough of these ubber cute images I’m not one for Halloween cards as you see in my post on Friday but these may just be converting me and bringing my dark side back out lol

I have made another 6½x7½” card for this one and pretty much the same LO as my last card just using white card to matt it too instead of black.

Everything used is from the collection the image is called Bat Dog and I have coloured with a mix of Polychromo and Pablo pencils, I think everything else is explanatory so will leave it there .
Hopefully I’ll get to make another tomorrow

Witchy Winnie

Hi beautiful people how are you all today I hope you are getting ready for the colder weather I am I have just put the thicker duvet on our bed (not the thickest but the one below) and then I always double up in the winter (yep a 13.5 tog and a 10.5 together cozy toes)
Anyways I have a quick little card for you today and yes I mean quick we had a mega delivery on Thursday of the new Match Attax release and both Phil and myself have been busy sorting out boxes packets and cards.  Anyway I got what I was doing finished yesterday so last night I got straight back into making a card.

This one is a 6½ x7½” card blank made from Kraft card then the papers image and sentiment are all from the Winnie Wednesday collection, I matted the papers onto black card
I distressed and inked the edges of papers then added to card

The image I have coloured with a mix of Prisma, Pablo and Polychromo pencils.
To finish the card I punched out the sentiment then added it to a punch circle of card then heat embossed a couple of times with clear powder.

Hope you like it and please check back Friday for another DT make and maybe a BONUS!!!!!

Lighting the way for Christmas

Happy Friday crafty peeps I ope you are all well the weather has definitely started to turn colder now (Bbbbrrrrr) so with with that being said it’s time to start making those Christmas cards!!!!!! :0O  We all know that Christmas creeps p on us all to quickly and we are forever playing catch up to make sure we have all our cards made and ready (I know I do every year) I even remember the year before last still making them on Christmas eve!!!!!!
So we have a new challenge for you over at #Polkadoodles f as alway for you guys it’s anything goes but for us DT gals the theme is Christmas (well you never saw that coming did ya!!!)
We have had a massive response to the new Winnie Christmas release and it’s not surprising she is just adorable I do love Winnie. Now there is not just the download OH no!!!!! Nikky has gone all out with this collection there are paper packs with die cut Winnies and also for those that still love to have a CDrom rather than download she has brought this collection into the 21st century and brought it out on a USB (yes a USB) which comes in it’s own container for safe keeping or you upcycle it and get crafty with it.
Also for those that love physical stamps there is a gorgeous collection of Winnies on clear stamps and that is what I have used for my card today.
Yes you read correctly the queen of digi has been stamping lol I treated myself to the Tonic/ Tim Holtz stamping platform as I am Rubbish at stamping I can never get a good clean print which was I turned to digis but there are some projects that need a stamp and hey ho I wanted to give it a go.
So this was my first play with the stamp platform and the stamps and I’m well impressed with both (Woohoooo)

I  did my usual 8x8” card but I wanted to keep it pretty clean and simple and decided to do a trellis design down the edge (again something new for me) it’s so easy and such a great effect.

The papers I used were what come with the stamp set and is called holly jolly they’re 6x6” and I love them some of them are available in other collections but it’s still worth it.
I coloured Winnie Lighting the way with a mix of polychrome, Pablo and prisma pencils  and the sentiments are also cut out from one of the papers.

I just distressed the edges of everything and added some distress ink and hey presto it’s Christmas.
Hope you like it and I will see you very soon with another PD make
