Polkadoodles digi

Oh wow, the fab Polkadoodles have an amazing offer on this digi, so it would have been very rude not to purchase it.

I used a white 8x8 card and layered two different tones of Creata mirror card.  I then used a Creata cup stamp to make the backing sheet, it was stamped using Tim Holtz distress inks, marmalade and rusty hinge.  I then used a Sheena Douglas crackle stamp in the same two tones.

Then it was down to the exciting bit of colouring, wanted to keep the colours to a minimum.  I then used Creata organza and ran it through the Joy and joined the different size flowers together with a screw brad and added flourishes again from Creata.  I will be heating the organza with a heat gun and giving a more distressed look.

I shall be entering this card into the challenge at ;

Am now working on my next Polkadoodles image, sneaky peek...

Why not check out some of the digi's ?

mixing it up

Now for what I love, letting all the different brands work together to create a card.  On  this card I have used stamps from; Creata, Visible Image and Indigo blu.

Sometimes it's nice just to stamp, no colouring or distressing, just simple stamping as it looks so effective on the creata craft card.  The wood stamp is from a fantastic set from Visible Image and forms a major part of the card, the horse is from Creata and the rest are from a stamp set from Indigo blu.  The flower at the top is a decoupage die from Creata.

Visible Image

Time to play with some of my Christmas presents that my dear Dad got me before he passed away on new years day this year..

loved using the Isabella stamp along with the rose stamp, which is designed so it can be layered easily.  I have used Creata mirror card and papers with the Visible Image stamps.

Now this Molly stamp has to be my favourite Visible Image stamp.  Have coloured using pro-markers and added dies from Creata online and Creata mirror card.

Am entering the Isabella card into the Visible Image challenge for January.  at ;
