Hugs & Kisses

Hi there I'm back with another super cute Magnolia image from the Hugs & Kisses collection "Tulip Love Tilda".  I've paired her up with Maja Design's most recent paper collection "Denim and Girls".  Love it!!  

I've added my usual ton of embellishments so if you have any questions please let me know.  I didn't get as many photo's as usual but probably because it was a "just for fun" card. 


I hope you like it!
Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs, 
Eulanda

Winnie - Hooray

Well I have some fun new news for you!!  Well ok maybe more for me but
(drumroll please)

I'M NOW ON THE POLKADOODLES design team!!
YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I'm really looking forward to playing with all the new things and promoting Nikky's amazing store and amazing products!!  You know I've been a fan of hers for awhile now so I'm super thrilled to have a spot on her team.  Thanks Nikky!!  

Today is my first card but I'll be altering my format somewhat going forward.  I think it'll be fun for a change and I hope you like it.  You may even learn a little!!  😉

I've paired up Winnie - "Hooray" with Maja Design's gorgeous new papers "Denim and Girls".  As you can see here, under my image I've created a layer using Polkadoodles dies - "Fanciful Circles" and added a doily from my stash.  I love this set and will use it for many more cards as the sizing is nice and big and there are more pieces for variety!  


Under my image layer I have some gorgeous Laserowe Love chipboard flourish pieces.  I will bring a tutorial to you in a future post showing how to use the shimmer Versamark and then heat the Ranger UltraThick embossing enamel (clear).  I heated it only halfway so it looks rather like raindrops.  Very cool look but a little hard to photograph.  LOL!


On the left edge of my card I've added a Scrapman border die, Laswerowe Love chipboard embossed flowers, then popped on some Wild Orchid leaves and roses to top it off.   I had some wooden butterfly embellishments in my stash so I painted one with gesso then adhered a couple of pearls to the center.  


I've colored this little sweetie using my Prismacolor pencil crayons and listed all colors below my image.  That peach color was a challenge but matches perfectly with the Maja peach on their new papers and I'm sure you'll find some Polkadoodles papers such as "Just Smile" or "Butterfly Daisy" to match as well.


Prismacolors:

Shirt - Beige, Pumpkin Orange, Mineral Orange, Terra Cotta
Pants - Sky Blue Light, Blue Slate, Mediterranean Blue, Denim Blue
Sky - Sky Blue Light, Powder Blue, Periwinkle
Tree, Bushes and Grass - Pale Sage, Sap Green Light, Kelly Green, Olive Green
Pavement - Cool Grey 10%, 20%, 30%, 50%, 70%
Hair - Sand, Burnt Ochre, Light Umber, Chocolate
Tree - Ginger root, Chocolate, Light Umber, Dark Umber

I hope you've enjoyed my first post to Polkadoodles and continue to stay tune for more inspiration!

I'd like to join in on the following challenges:

Tuesday Throwdown - Anything Goes
Lil Patch of Crafty Friends - Anything Goes
Crafting with an Attitude - Anything Goes
Ally's Angels - Anything Goes


Keep it crafty! 💓

Mister Tom's Treasures

Good day! 

I don't have a lot to say about this one but it's a card I made for my dad's bday back in February.  I love these papers from Pion called "Mister Tom's Treasures".  It's always nice when a company dedicates the occasional collection to men.  I've been using this for a few years now and YAY ME I still have some left!  LOL!


I hope I've helped with some inspiration as men's cards are always tough for us!

Hugs,
Eulanda

Hugs and Kisses!

Good day!!  I'm super excited to be sharing this little beauty today!! 


Here is Selfie Tilda from the Hugs and Kisses collection, who I've framed in a chipboard piece from Laserowe Love "Oval Floral Frames" and they come in a set of 2.  With this chipboard, I added Diamond stickles over the whole frame.  You should see it in real life.  It's soooo sparkly and pretty!!  


Since Tilda is holding a phone, I thought I would try to make a cell phone look like it's texting with someone.  I'm still on the fence about how it turned out but the idea was fun.  LOL!!

I've used some shabby seam binding again in 2 places, added some pins and OH!!  The stitched heart chipboard covered with stickles is also from Laserowe Love.  I must say I think this might be one of my recent favorites!


Well thanks so much for stopping by
and have a great week!!

Hugs,

Ruby - Hey There

Good day!!!  This week I've decided to pair up a Polkadoodles image with these gorgeous LemonCraft papers "Grow Old With Me".  They are very vintage feeling and just stunning!!!   In the lower left you can see a super cute Laserowe Love chipboard fence, which I've colored brown with my copics and added a few flowers.  There is also a yellow pearl headed berry there as well as 2 more in my main bouquet.


I colored the image "Ruby - Hey There" with my Prismacolor's and listed the combo's below.  Not a color combination I use often so it was fun to play!


I punched 2 layers of this amazing Magnolia umbrella doohickey and layered a couple of Laserowe Love butterflies.  I colored both of the with my copics but stickled the top peach colored one and popped on a pearl center.  Again I've used a seam binding bow, which I can't seem to get enough of.  The store has quite a selection of colors so there's something for everyone!


Don't forget about our challenge this month of BLING or LACE!  I hope you can join us!!

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Have a great week!
Hugs,

Polkadoodles

OMG SERIOUSLY HOW CUTE ARE THESE?

I bought a package of pre-colored images from Polkadoodles called "Fuzzypuffs" (even the name is CUTE) and had fun with some quicker cards.  I didn't have to color and so that saved me about 8 hours!!  I am really liking this idea!  Maybe a little too much.  LOL!

A hedgehog - awwww!!!!


A writing mouse - hee hee!


A little teddy bear with flowers and mail.  Adorable!!!


I think I can see more of these in my future!!!  

Hugs!
