It's Digi Choosday - Week 26 - Use Some Embossing

Hello everybody             
Welcome to another Tuesday and another great challenge over at Digi Choosday.
This week’s challenge is ‘Use Some Embossing’.
There are a few ways of embossing, but I’ve decided to use one of my embossing folders called ‘Swiss Dots’ and my Grand Calibur to make the card matt and layering and make another Christmas card.  Well it’s never too early to get started and I’ve got a few Christmas things made already.  It’s good to get ahead of yourself even if it does feel a little bit strange creating Christmas projects when the sun is shining.
Not only does Nikky – Polka Doodles produces some absolutely fab downloads and SVG cutting files but she also produces the most amazing CDs and for the Christmas tree elements on the cards I’ve used a great collection I’ve not used for a long while called Magical Winter 1 & 2 CD Collection from the Silly Snowman Collection.  There are tonnes and tonnes of stuff on these two CDs from papers and sentiments to lots of …

It's Digi Choosday Day - Week 25 - Tag It

Hello everybody      Welcome to another Tuesday and another great challenge over at Digi Choosday.
This week’s challenge is ‘Tag It’.
I love making tags because they can be elaborately or simply decorated and it gives you a chance to use lots of the little embellishments you may have lying around in your craft room. 
I’ve decided to use the Dollie Goes East collection and have used three of the coloured digis which I’ve resized in a graphics package and printed out and then used some of the lovely papers available on the collection with the flowers which I’ve resized as well to go onto some Kraft Card tags and finished them off with glitter, gems and ribbon and lace.  I’ve made these three tags so that they can be used as cards so I printed off three different envelopes (also on the collection) and they will be just great for the tags and are just the right size too.

Here is my crafty make this week:

It's Digi Choosday Day - Week 24 - Use Some Buttons

Hello everybody          

Welcome to another Tuesday and another great challenge over at Digi Choosday.
This week’s challenge is ‘Use Some Buttons’
This is a great challenge for me because I have oodles and oodles of buttons in storage jars to take my pick from. 
I’ve decided to use the latest Work & Play 11 Collection, using a black and white digi I’ve coloured with Graph It pens, papers and sentiments and the wonderful gymnastic beam.  You see, my sister is an absolutely wonderful gymnast and runs her own gymnastic business and so with her in mind I’ve decorated the card with some of the alphabets on the Eden collection together with the flowers which I’ve resized in my graphics package by Do Crafts.  I’ve put the buttons in the centres of the flowers and with a smattering of glitter on the ribbon…. Voila!!!

It's Digi Choosday - Week 23 - Father's Day/Male Card

Hello everybody             

Welcome to another Tuesday and another great challenge over at Digi Choosday.

We are fast approaching Father’s Day (21st June 2015) and so this week’s challenge is ‘Father’s Day/Male card’.

Making this card has proved a dilemma in that there are so many great images to choose from in the Polka Doodles collections.  As I’m making this card for my dad (shhh… don’t tell him….ha ha ha) and he is a keen fisherman I’ve chosen one of the older Work & Play Collections, number 7, and the coloured fishing digi from that same collection and mixed it up with some of the ‘boy’ papers from the very very new Work & Play 11 Collection.  That’s the beauty of these Work & Play Collections…they mix and match absolutely wonderfully.

I’ve chosen a mixture of the papers from the collection and layered them on top of one another using my Do Crafts Designer and then highlighted the image with faux stitching using a black pen and the Graph It Shake It white pen and t…

It's Digi Choosday Day - Week 22 - Use Some Kraft Card

Hello everybody             
Welcome to another Tuesday and another great challenge over at Digi Choosday.
This week the challenge is ‘Use Some Kraft Card’
The Rose Budd collection is full of pretty digis and papers and embellishments.  I’ve used a sheet from the collection called ‘Flower Sheet’ which has nine pretty little flower squares on it and I’ve embossed them with ultra thick embossing powder and matted and layered onto Kraft Card and a sheet of the paper from the collection.  Finished it off with the wonderful envelope sentiments from the collection which I’ve dyed using some Tim Holtz Distress Stain.  I found some great green satin ribbon and used some of the gems from last week’s challenge to finish off the card. Click the linkies below for the collection.
I was trying to achieve a vintage feel to the card and hope I’ve achieved this.
