Polkadoodles Feeding the birds

Today marks the day for my final post on the Polkadoodles DT. The card I’ve made is a Christmas card as a reminder that it’s a good idea to make them all year around so that when December comes around again you don’t have to spend lots of time that you don’t really have to make more cards than you thought you needed. At least that’s how my Decembers tend to be. Too many cards to make and not enough time!

The stamp I have used is called Feeding the Birds and is a digital stamp. I’ve positioned it to the very side of the panel made sure it was big enough to get all the details to show properly. 

The card itself is super easy. I’ve taken a matching piece of scrap paper I had laying around and made a border at the top, which was added with foam tape for dimension. The same goes for the sentiment. A handful of matching sequins around the text finished off the card.

Copics used: B0000, B91, B93, B95, B97, B99, BV20, BV23, BG000, N0, N1, N3, W5, W7, W10, E00, E02, E08, E13, E15, E18, E19, E42, E43, E44, E71, E74, E77, E79, R22, R24, R29, R89, G21, G24, G94, G99

Happy birthday bear in present

I’ve used Beary Special Birthday from MFT Stamps for this card. If you’d like to see how I colour up this kind of stamp, please see this video.

The background is made with distress oxide ink with a stamp by Simon Says Stamp inked with Altenew on top. The numbers and embossed text is by MFT Stamps and the stars are chipboards I’ve coloured up in a matching colour.

Copics used for the bow: B21, B24, B26, B39

A quick video colouring up this whole image to show how to colour up a fancy bow. The stamp is by My Favorite Things from the stamp set Beary Special Birthday. The stamp itself is no longer available at MFT Stamps as it has been retired, but various local shops may have it still so check yours.

Here is an example of a card I’ve made using this stamp:

RAM Birthday Mouse

Rachelle Anne Miller Creative Studio released some adorable celebration stamps in March and I have coloured up one of them, Birthday Mouse, for today’s card.

I wanted a fun and colourful card, so got out a distress oxide ink, some altenew ink, a background stamp and various dies from MFT Stamps, La-La Land Crafts and Papirdesign. I stuck with the colour scheme from the coloured image.

Copics used: RV00, RV21, RV23, RV25, RV29, V12, V15, V17, V09, YG21, YG23, YG17, YG67, E41, E42, E43, E44, E74, E79, W0, W1, W3, W5, N0, N3

Polkadoodles Marigold

It’s time for another Polkadoodles project today. As March is coming to an end, spring is just around the corner most places where it hasn’t quite reached it. Where I live, the last bit of snow melted away last week and the weather is warming up nicely. 

My card for you today is also spring themed and I’ve used the clear stamp Marigold Darling Buds. It’s been coloured up using Copic markers. I opted for a peach colour which matches the paper in the Soft & Scrumptious craft paper collection quite well, I think. I cut out a panel from the peach background with the green hearts and then cut out the coloured image in a smaller size before attaching it using foam tape. A simple sentiment to bring in more of the hints of green and a few peach coloured enamel dots finished off the card.

Copics: YR00, R12, YR0, R22, G40, G43, G46, YG67, E00, E02, E13, E15, E53, E25, E59, E49
