Polkadoodles DT - Concertina Card !!!

Hello my dear friends, I'm here today sharing my Concertina card using 
Polkadoodles papers, dies and a cute digital stamp as part of the Desgin Team for

Polkadoodles.co.uk

  
To make a concertina card, you will need a 12" x 6" piece of
heavy weight card stock. I use between 300 & 350 gsm.  Score your card
stock with the long side on the top of your scoreboard
 at 3" & 6" fold and burnish your scorelines.


I printed out sweet Oddella Fairy from the Ickyink Art Alternative 
digistamp collection on 240gsm Botanical Ultra Smooth hot 
pressed water colour card colouring her with Distress Re-Inkers.
I added a few gems in the same colour as her dress
to give a nice accent touch.  She was mounted onto the two largest
dies from the Polkadoodles Basics - Rectangles 





My papers are from the fabulous  Winnie Fairy Tale
paper pack which contains 2 each of12 different designs 
I chose 3 sheets and with the extra paper from the butterfly

paper I fussy cut out 2 large and 1 small butterfly for my card.


These are the dies I used to layer up my stamp and to add a little
extra specialness to my card.



For my little tags I cut 2 out of the  Posydoodles Basics Tags die 
in white cardstock and then using the die and my pencil I ran along
 the inside of the die on a piece of card stock to match the card.  
Cut it out and glued it onto the tags using my hole punch
 to re-punch the eyelet out. 


The inside of the card has basic nesting dies to hold the fabulous 
Hello word sentiment which was cut out 3 time in white card stock
and then once in contrasting paper from the pack, all glue together
to give a chipboard feeling and placed in the centre of the back panel.



 I finished off my card by adding some pretty flowers and leaves. 


Thank you so much for popping in to visit.
Wishing you all a fabulous day.

Polkadoodles DT - How to make 3D Flowers!!!

Hello my dear friends, I'm here today sharing the way I reshape and 
distress my paper flowers using Polkadoodles papers, dies and 
digital elements from various downloads.

Polkadoodles.co.uk

  


I stamped up sweet Celebration Winnie from the new Winter
Celebrations download. Colouring her with Copics and 
Derwent Colour Soft pencils. After colouring I place my sentiments
on the balloons using Super Sentiments - Clear Polymer stamp set
Floral Fireworks





cutting four of the largest and 4 of the medium dies using

I printed out some leaves from the Winnie White Christmas big Kahuna bundle


I very lightly sprayed the flower die cuts with water, folding them and just
slightly twisting each one.  You can leave them to dry naturally which won't take 
very long or like me use your heat gun to dry them.


Once dry unravel them and glue two together before adding your centres. I
also used my distress ink (brushed corduroy) to the edge of the petals.




I finished the card off by adding a little lace and cutting out two of the
 largest tags from  the Posydoodles Basics Tags die 
using the same papers as for the base of the card.


Thank you so much for popping in to visit.
Wishing you all a fabulous day.
