Polkadoodles Royal Peacock stamp soup - Unicorn Card

Hi All,

Here to share another Stamp Soup make with you ... I think there are still a couple of these stamp sets available on create and Craft .. so worth grabbing them if you can. You can also still watch the show here

This is a simple card, but one of my fav's that I created for the show ... I used a sentiment from the Ula cd and created a stylised unicorn from the stamp set .... I created the drips using indigo blu luscious powders then I added a few splatters ( cant craft without splatters at the mo, lol ) ... I then stamped the swirl under the sentiment and traced round it with gold pen to give it a bit of a shadow effect.

Polkadoodles Royal Peacock - Altered Shoe



Hello All,

Very exciting day for us at PD towers, Nikky had a fabulous show on Create and Craft .. You can still find the show available to watch here ... you have to check out Nikky's amazing peacock!!!

Stamp Soup is one of my favourite Polkadoodle products, and I can't quite believe that the very first samples I have ever made for a TV show were stamp soup ones!! eeeeeeeeeeek

So I started with an Altered shoe ... This was originally a bright pink shoe .... I used to bbe able to wear shoes like this all the time, now however I stick to flats!! I wore these not long after I had my daughter and fell while pushing the pram ... I have never worn them since ...

I covered the shoe in Black Gesso ... and with indigo blu slap it on I covered it with glitter, and then used it again to seal it .... I stamped with the soup down the side of the shoe with gold embossing powder. I then stamped on heat resistant acetate to create the scallops that go down the side of the shoe ... the butterfly on the back of the shoe & the dimensional flower on the front of the shoe, & finally I added gems round the edge of the shoe.

Lil Miss Mermaid and Dolphin


Hi All, sharing another Lil Miss Sugarpops make totay we have Lil Miss Mermaid with Dolphin I have coloured her up using copic markers.

I was originally going to make a simple card with the coloured image with a watercolour background, but it turned into a mixed media card.

I started off creating a background with brusho's and SN Sparkle pens ... I then did a bit of faux bleaching with water through a stencil. I then embossed using one of Leonie Pujol's embossing folders, and highlighted the detail using a guilding wax. The I added some little polkadoodle die cuts, lots of chunky glitter and some little glass beads.

A Apple a Day



Hi All,

So excited that Nikki has released some more images in the Lil Miss Sugarpops range. Today I have used the pre coloured Apple A Day You can also get her as a Digi image here

If you are anything like me, this little image will be a life saver ... I have suddenly realised its the last day week of term and I am running round at last minute trying to get Teachers gifts organised. I used an Apple Chipboard shape I had and covered with papers and elements from Polkadoodles Winnie Fruit Punch collection  I then added some little sticky notes and a little loop to add a mini pen.

I haven't quite decided if this will go to a teacher or to my daughter who will have her Nursery graduation next week.

Hello All,

Welcome to another Digi Chooseday, that time of the week where Nikki offers a fabulous discount so you can have yourself a wee crafty treat :-) So please do pop over to the blog and grab yourself the discount code.

As always the challenge is Anything Goes however the DT have been asked to use more than one image .. I have always loved creating random scenes with lots of images .. before the world of digi stamps, I used to mainly do that with stamping and masking ... however the Digi world has opened a whole new avenue to play. I have taken images from Octavia Moonfly  and Stamp Soup - Little Kingdom to create this scene, I have coloured it all up using Copic Markers, and as the scene is so busy I decided to keep the card C&S just using a few polkadoodle dies to embellish.

Planning with Lil Miss Sugar Pops









Hello All,

I am here to introduce the gorgeous new Lil Miss Sugarpops from Polkadoodles. If you are a planner girl, love journaling or pocket letters then you are going to love this kit.

Today I have altered an old planner/diary from a few years ago, I have used loads of elements form both kits ... To cover the planner, make dividers, and pockets full of useful bits and bobs!!

I ended up giving the cover of the journal a bit more of a mixed media feel by adding gesso through stencils, paint splatters, and gilding wax around the edges. The planner also had a little credit card holders, so I shrunk down the Pocket Letters from the kit and popped some in there, and finished off with ribbons, lace & beads from my stash.

Digi Chooseday - Week 23


Hi There, Its time for another Digi Chooseday .... Yaaaay, it means discount day!! so please do pop over to the blog and grab your code. The theme as always is anything goes, however the DT were asked to make a shabby chic card.

To make mine I used the Helga collection, and played with a load of the embellies from that collection. I worked out the layout and details in Seriff. I then printed out multiple times so I could layer up. The watch I used UTE and then popped in the freezer so I could create a cracked effect. I then added gilding wax to the edges to bling it up a little.

Please do come and join us .. there is a chance to win a fabby polkadoodles voucher, and my teamies have knocked it out the park today, so worth checking out their makes.
