Crimbo Crackers Challenge 157 - Anything Goes

It's time for a new Crimbo Crackers challenge and the theme as always is

Anything Goes

I've made some more of the cute gift boxes using a Sizzix box die with ivory hammered card.  The patterened paper I found in my stash and I've added a little Sizzix scalloped gift tag to each.  The holly and berries I took from another Christmas gift tag and I made the bow by adding a little tree ornament from Primark

Herd You've Mooved

Sometimes its really easy to make a card - a work colleague has just moved house and this image from Dr Digi - Cuddly Critters Cow was just perfect!


I've handwritten the sentiment and used a BBQ stick for the banner.  The grass is an unbranded die and the image has been coloured with Promarkers.

Daring Card Makers - Feeling A Little Blue

It's time for a new Daring Card Makers challenge and the theme for the week is:

Feeling A Little Blue

I've used papers from Funky Hand - Boys and Girls which is no longer available.  I've used my own letter templates and layered them on to recycled kraft card, which I've also used for the Clearly Besotted sentiment dies and the X Cut stars.


And to finish I've added a line around the letters and card base with a black fine liner pen.  Good luck with the challenge!

Polkadoodle Challenge - Anything Goes or Spring / Summer

Welcome to a new Polkadoodle challenge!  The theme as always is

Anything Goes

However the DT were challenged with the theme of Spring / Summer.  I've made this cute mermaid using the Winnie Ballerina die for the body and Winnie Chic die for the hair.  I've added random seed beads from my stash, sticking them with glossy accents and then sprinkled fine glitter over the top.  I've also added some tiny bows from the Ballerina die to her hair and an iridescence flower I also found in my stash.


The clouds have been cut from offcuts of card and the waves are the negatives from the edge shape dies which are no longer available.

Ribbon from my stash.  Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:

Professor Dummkopf

There are some great men's digi stamps over at Dr Digi and this one is called Professor Dummkopf.  I've used a lot of kraft card and a black sharpie and black fine liner pen!  All but the card base are offcuts of card from previous projects and some are recycled from Graze boxes.

Image has been coloured with Promarkers and I hand wrote the sentiment.

Made for a work colleague who looks rather like the image but without the lab coat!

I've used this cute image from Tiddly Inks - Happy Baa Day To You which I've coloured with Promarkers and coloured pencils.  The papers are from my stash and I thought they went so well with the image.  Buttons too are from my stash and I had no issues trying to find colour matches!

I've used the cute Gina Caribe digi from the sponsor, coloured her with Promarkers plus watercolour pencils for the background.  For once, I matched the colours to the papers I already had in my stash as I'm trying to use up all the bits and bobs that I have.


Papers are Echo Park, Early Bird and I found a perfectly matching green ribbon in my stash to make a lovely big bow!
