Anything Goes - Polkadoodles Crafting

Happy Friday Everyone!
Here today for 
*Anything Goes*
Or
*Something beginning with F*



hmmmm something beginning F had to be flowers for me. My friend is celebrating her 70th birthday so I wanted to make something a little special. I chose the lovely lantern template from The Lavender Tea collection.
I have made this before and although it looks tricky it really is'nt . It also builds quickly the longest part for me is the decorating although I find that really enjoyable. I use lots of blue-tac until I am completly sure what is going where.

 It looks quite red in the photo's but its a really deep pink in real life. I used a really lovely pearl stock card.  I wanted to match the flowers in so I decorated using
 Lemonade Fizz collection.

 I think they work perfectly together. All that was added to finish were some pearls, a little lace hanging down, a few fern dies and a battery operated candle
Oh and of course a matching card
Thank you for looking

The Hummingbird Collection

Happy Sunday , It's a little dull here in the South West but very, very humid!
I have Simply Cards & Papercraft delivered each month
and when it was delivered the other day I could not wait to play
What a stunning Hummingbird collection we were well and truly spoilt

I am very afraid of frogs in real life but this little chap was yelling at me to use him
I decided I wanted to use nice fresh colours of green and yellow with white

I started with a 6 x 6 white card blank
Using the freebie embossing folder which is 5 x 5
Cutting a hole in the center
Mounted onto some fresh green cardstock

I added in some bakers twine and adhered all to cardbase

With a slightly smaller die , cut another smaller circle
and then the stamps came into play
I stamped the frog and the sentiment using Memento ink Bamboo Leaves
Using Water paints to colour up
(using blue I flicked about for some effect - not much I'm not that brave!)
I then used the fern stamp around the edge
and attached with foam pads

For the Flowers I stamped them twice, the underneath flowers are painted as are the leafs
For the top flowers I used Brusho's Yellow and lemon 
added a few tiny pearls once dry and a little yellow stickles



Finished of with some faux stitching, a few fern leafs from a fern die and a button
Thank you for looking have a great day
xx

Fun at the Seaside - Polkadoodles Crafting

Happy Friday Everyone
What a mixed bag of weather we are having here in the UK
One place there is sun guranteed is at my Summer Chalet!
 I cut the Chalet on my portrait using one of Sandra's great files that you can find here
I added acetate to the front windows.
I cut this in kraft card as due to the size it needed to be nice and sturdy . The roof  I cut in corragated card. The lovely wooden paper used is from  Distressed Wood paper pack  and apart from some ribbon for curtains , I have used the amazing Starfish and Sandcastles collection to decorate.

Spot the little doggie wearing his amazing sun glasses!


 To say I am totally addicted to this collection is an utter understatement , I have another project in the pipeline from Starfish and Sandcastles to share in a few weeks time!
