Digi Choosday – Week 39 – Anything Goes

 

Morning, it’s Tuesday and the start of a new challenge at Digi Choosday

The theme is – Anything Goes.

I’ve made a Xmas wall hanging for this weeks challenge, using the new release from Polkadoodles Festive Christmas available on CD-ROM.

 

Step by Step

1. Using a graphics program, I use My Craft Studio, I choose a one of the pre-designed circle frames from the Polkadoodles Festive Christmas collection and resized. I added additional elements from the embellishments section, the snowflakes and script, and altered the brightness to make them white, then altered the opacity so background would show through. I also did the same for the reindeer and the text.

2. Die cut the circle, using a Tattered Lace circle die, and matted onto decorative circle, cut from white card stock using a Spellbinders die.

3. Printed a co-ordinating paper, also from the Polkadoodles Festive Christmas collection, matted onto white card stock.

4. Matted the focal design using 3D foam tape.

5. Embellished with some snowflakes, die cut from white card stock using a Tattered Lace die set. Added some clear flat back gems to the snowflakes.

6. Used some white ribbon to create a hanging loop.

Say It With Flowers – Love

Afternoon, hope you’re all well! It’s cold, cold, cold here in Lancashire so what better excuse to stay indoors and craft.

Sharing a make using some of my Tattered Lace dies and embossing folders.

 

 

I used various dies to make the card, using Kraft card, cream linen effect card & gold mirri card. I gold Buff-It polish on the flowers and leaves after I’d embossed the pieces. Embellishing with a few light pink flat back pearls.

Off to play with some of my new Sweet Poppy Stencils that I bought recently, need to clear a decent space on the craft desk first though, it’s a tip!!!!!
