Winnie White Christmas last day launch

Good afternoon my lovelies I hope you aere enjoying all the Christmas makes for our DT. Girls you are AMAZING!!!!!!!!!
I have to say it was a rocky start for me this release I honestly didn’t think I would be able take put or I would only be able to do a couple of cards so I was  really pleased to get my 7 yes seven little beauties ready.
I also treated myself to the stamp set (Ssssshhhhhh don’t tell Hubster hehehe)  so I’m having a play these too with my tim holtz/tonic stamp station OMG it’s a dream I love it the images are so crisp LOVE IT!!!

AnyHOOOOOO back to the card I made a Kraft card blank using 2 sheets of A4 kraft card then added Kraft to the back of all my papers I was trying to give it a vintagey feeling but still colourful and pretty.
I distressed the papers tearing in some places  and inked with oxide inks (I love these they’re sooooo blendable.

The image Called Winnie and Pengiun has been coloured with a mix of Pablo and Prisma pencils and then mounted onto Kraft card. I then added iced diamond and snow dust to the floor to give the effect of freshly fallen snow. I also masked off the image and went around it with oxide inks to create the background again in doing this these seem more blendable than the normal distress inks.

For the embellishments I took one of the word arts from the set and added clear embossing powder I did this a couple of times to give a good coverage, then I cut out the flower and leaves from the foliage section again I clear embossed the top sections of these then cut into some of the petal to give a more 3D effect then added a flat backed stone. To finish the look I added frontage and splatters of paint to the card.

The final step was the insert and that was done in my usual way (but a little differently) instead of brightening the inner paper and the fading it I just faded the edges letting it merge into the paper behind  then added the uncoloured image and a verse from the sentiment section.
Hope you like it and I will see you again very soon as I think I now have the Christmas bug lol

Winnie Shake it Off

Well Hello again I hope you had a great weekend I had a very productive day yesterday I have to say and am rather chuffed with myself because of it.
I have another card for you today for the Winnie White Christmas launch and I think is now my favourite of the cards I have made (now I have finally finished the full 7 boy I didn’t think I was going to do it)
So for this card I decided to do something I haven’t done in years and that is make a shaker card eeeekkkkk I had the idea in my head but wasn’t sure I could pull it off.

I used a stencil from sweet poppy and I did a few try’s before I was happy using distress inks including oxide but I wasn’t happy with any of them, then I had a brain wave (which is scary for me) and decided to use black card and picket fence distress ink and distress spray paint blending it over the stencil. Then I added some splatters of the spray paint and some diluted acrylic paint before adding my faux snow and glitter.

The frame I die cut about 6 times (Creative expression Dies)and glued together to give it some depth.
For the image I used the pre coloured Winnie buys a Tree which I fussy cut and added to front with 3D tape I also used one of the sentiments from the collection which I die cut out to match the frame.
So there you have my card for today I hope you like it and I’ll see you tomorrow with my final card

Winnie day 5 rolling snowballs

Happy Sunday Everyone I hope you’re having a great weekend. It’s party time over at Polkadoodles and Winnie is winning every ones heart
For this card I decided to try and make another vintage looking card I made the card blank using craft card that I die cut the front with a stitch effect square using ASue Wilson die in fact I used the set on most of the papers.  I added some frontage to the papers as well to give that snowy feeling.

The image is called Winnie rolling snowballs and I have coloured with a mix of Pablo and prisma pencils.

The sentiment is from the word art section on the download and I have jusy added some clear embossing powder to it.

To finish I added 3 snowflakes from my stash then moved on to the insert which is made using the same papers and the uncoloured version of the image then I added one of the sentiments that is in the collection and there you have it.

I hope you like it and hopefully I will have my next one ready for you tomorrow better get a wiggle on (things keep going wrong lol)

Winnie Day 4 OnEsie

And I’m back with my 4th card for this release, I have to say I don’t usually enjoy making Christmas cards this time of year it’s seems a chore and I’m not really in the Christmas spirit  then I get to the middle of December and  BANG!!! I have soooo many to mak. But not with this collection I’m loving making then and I hope it shows in the finished cards.

For this card I have kept with my usual 8x8” but this time made a card blank from Kraft card and used Kraft card as back for some of the papers.

I have added frontage to the edges of some of the papers and distressed with a mix of normal distress inks and oxides

Winnie-Rudie Onsie is an adorable image to colour with I did with a mix of pencils (polys Prisma Pablos ). I then used Oxide inks to create the background.I forgot to mention I added some google eyes to the onesie for a fun look.

I embellished the card using images from the embellishment section I decided on some stockings to hand at the side I printed 6 off in total so I could double them up to make the stronger and the top one I added clear embossing powder. I did the same with the greeting which is also from this collection and I added a touch of frontage to this also.

I finished the outside by adding a couple of bells tied with some gold thread.
Finally to complete the card I made the insert using the papers from the front and bringing Winnie through then adding another sentiment from the selection.
So I hope you like it and yes I will more Winnie for you tomorrow

Winnie White Christmas day 3

Well it’s day 3 of the new release over at Polkadoodles  Winnie is proving to be a big hit again and it’s no surprise she is adorable if you haven’t got yours yet you need to (link below)

Now this card OMG it very nearly didn’t happen. It came about Nikky sent me the download to start working in my card for this release then I was struck down with vertigo when I have a bad bout of this it wipes me off my feet completely so I really thought I wouldn’t be able to continue being part of the release. Anyway I had printed everything off and coloured the image just before the vertigo hit then last weekend I started to feel a lot better so I thought lets get stuck in (maybe I  jumped in a little too soon) as I couldn’t  concentrate I made so many mistakes even decapitating poor Winnie yes I sliced right through her head so I had to re colour the image then my printer started playing up and basically start from scratch  Oh Boy!!!!!!!
Anyhooo I did finally make the card although a little different to my original design.
So everything I have used is part of the kit except for the ribbon, glitter and gems. I distressed and inked the edges of the papers (which as I have said before are gorgeous)

I coloured the imaged with a mix of pencils (Prisma, Polychromo, Pablo, Luminance)
The embellishments are taken from the foliage section of the download and then I added clear embossing powder to the top layer and also added some frontage.

 The flower I layered up to give it more dimension and also cut into some of the petals on the second layer adding a flat backed gem to the centre.

I finished the card off by making the insert using the same papers as on the front one of the coloured images and another off the sentiments and there you have my 3rd card.
I will see you again tomorrow with another make until have a great Friday and weekend

Papillon shabby chic!!!

Hi lovely people how are you all I hope this post finds you well. It's all go this week at PD Towers but that hasn't stopped the challenges so as it’s Friday we have a new challenge for you over at Polkadoodles and this  week us DT girls were asked to use a design sheet.

For mine I used some elements from one of the design sheets in the Belle Papillon collection. Everything I have used except the frame  pearls lace and pins comes from the collection which I have to say has the most gorgeous papers ever. The image one from  part of the embellishment section. 
Now for this card I have gone mixed media crazy slightly I needed a crafty distraction and yes it helped lol. I distressed and inked the papers with Victorian velvet and frayed burlap DI then I frantaged them to death. I wanted a real shabby chic look to this card (I think I pulled it off just)
I  printed the post card, tag, lady and stamps out 3 times and stuck the together as I wanted them to be sturdy and then embossed with clear powder for the tag and postcard I popped these in the freezer for a few minutes then fetched them out and cracked then inked with frayed burlap and walnut stain DI.
I added a doily which I tore in half. The frame is painted with a mix of acrylic paint and starlight paints to give a sexy shimmer but also the aged effect I wanted then I added some more frontage (why not) I added lace across the middle of the card then ontop of this added some pearl droplets. The butterflies are also from the embellishment section I printed them off cut out added glitter to the wings then glued together for the body, I made these with flower stamens and pearls (I think they are so pretty.)
To finish off the front I added a few loose pearls just for interest and I think that is about it

Hope you like it and I will see you very soon.

WinnieWhite Christmas 2 Robins

Hello again I’m back today with another make for the new release launch of this GORGEOUS  Winnie Collection

For this card I have made a very simple but I think stylish card it’s a 5½ x 5½” card we all have to make loads of Christmas card and some in a hurry also not everyone is keen on colouring and some people are just starting out cardmaking / crafting so I wanted to show how easy it is to make a pretty card using just a couple of elements from the download and some beads and pearls from my stash with a dash of glitter.
All I have used for this card is one of the piece is like I said 2 items from the collection the coloured Robins and one of the sentiments, I then added some glitter (I made the silly mistake of doing this while I had my desk fan on facing me as I was having a hot flush the glitter went everywhere and I mean everywhere) I then added some seed beads and some flat backed pearls and that is it quick and easy and very effective
I hope you like it and please pop over to our Facebook group to see all the new releases which will be going on all week and I will see you again tomorrow with another make
