Digi Choosday Challenge / Wk 40 – A card for the grandparents – use a circle die and create a frame for the card – Polkadoodles

It’s Tuesday! New challenge starts over at Digi Choosday today! As always it is anything goes but the design team is sharing their makes with a given theme. This week we are challenged to make a A card for the grandparents. We are also challenged to use a circle die and create a frame for the card!

This is my card:

Ahw, my grandpa and grandma … Unfortunately I have been missing them for a while. Nevertheless, I really enjoyed making this card! So, with my grandparents in mind, I have been crafting this project! They will have loved it 🙂
I have the cute digistamp and the background paper all from the Festive Hollybobs collection ! This fantastic Collection is all about everything Christmas Holidays related and includes a lot of great stuff to make a whole bunch of christmas related projects! The Festive hollybobs collection is a part of Polkadoodles Character Series. The Work & Play collections are a serious of downloads perfect for all those work related jobs and hobby themes – choose from musical instruments to Farming, Police, Firefighters and 100s of great themes! Available with co-ordinating papers and sentiments for each theme.

Details about my card:
– First I selected my digi stamp and the design paper and printed it out. I printed the background paper
on thin paper and the stamp on thick paper;
– now that I know the main colors of my card, I also know the color scheme that I will use for the stamp;
– this time I used my Promarkers to color the stamp;
– with colored pencil I applied shadow;
– the card and background paper are die-cutted with a StudioLight die-cut;
– I also die-cut all kinds of snowflakes and 2 Christmas twigs;
– I wanted a Dutch text on my card. I printed out “for grandpa and grandma” and made a small tag out
of it;
– I edited the tag with some distress ink;
– I loved the little bells to attach to the top of the card under the bow;
– I secured the tulle bow and the embellishments with a brad in the shape of a star;
– I also distressed my circle frame a bit;
– then I glued everything onto my main card;
– I glued little glitter stones to the snowflakes;
– and I smeared some fake snow on the twigs;
– I once bought ugly white sticky pearls in a sale. I colored a few of those small sticky pearls red with an
alcohol marker and stuck them on the twigs;
– the text at the bottom of the card is Dutch for Happy Holidays;
– I couldn’t resist punching and gluing some more hearts out of the remaining background paper.

It was really a joy to work on this card.

Wishing you all the best and hope to see you next time again! Good luck with challenge at

Place to Start October 2020 Challenge – Theme: Harvest

A huge welcome to everyone – new followers as well as old friends. I am very grateful for all of you wonderful people who follow me from week to week and month to month.
And here we are at the start of October! It is hard to believe we are ready for a new Place to Start challenge. I hope today you will find some wonderful inspiration today!

So lets see what I have made:

This is how I made my card:
– I first I gave a piece of printer paper a watercolor wash with the colors red, green and yellow;
– I let this paper dry overnight;
– I have cut out various leaves with dies of different brands;
– I took a blank card;
– I glued a design paper in a wood color on it;
– there I glued a jute strip;
– and there I glued my autumn leaves!

And that’s actually it! Very very simple! But sometimes life can be very simple 😉 I did not put a sentiment on the card yet. Maybe or maybe not I might do that later… I have not done this so far, because this card could be sent for various occasions. And perhaps there is no sentiment at all: you know: for an occasion for which you simply have no words for!

Thank you very much for visiting my blog. I am delighted with the comments you leave. Take care of yourself and your loved ones and I hope you will come back soon to have a look.

Aud Sentiments Challenge – #261 Digidoodle studios

Hello dear people! How are you! We are already in the first week of October: I just can’t believe it. Summer is definitely over and we are making Halloween cards!

So, lets go to a new challenge at Aud Sentiments now!

Our sponsor is: Digi Doodle Studios.

This is my card using the image called Ghostly Trio.

“Aren’t they super cute?!” The illustration is very easy to color!

Details about my card:
As you can see the design is very simple, although it is not easy to give the three ghosts a color 🙂 I dotted the stars in the background with glitter markers. I still had some black punched-out stars from my previous project and I used them in this card.

This Halloween greetingcard is not scary at all and that is sometimes nice for a change!

With this card I would love to play along in the following challenges:

Wishing you all the best and hope to see you next time again! Good luck with challenge #261 at

Creative Knockouts – #370- Witches Brew- Jan’s Digi Stamps

Good Morning my lovely crafty friends. I hope you are well and having a good time! Today is the start of a new Creative Knockouts Challenge. This time the theme is: Fall.
The prize for one lucky winner is $10 store gift certificate from Jan’s Digis Stamps.

My card features the very “witchy” digistamp that comes with a sentiment: Witches Brew.

I can hear you thinking, “Deezy it must be a fall theme …!” But my little witch is cooking a nice fall brew … duh!

This is how I have made my card:
– My background is inspired by Nichol Spohr and I just wanted to try it out for this card. I used some
distress ink and a stencil that I have had for years;;
– I printed out the very cute image on a blanc card;
– I printed out my image again on a scrapprinter paper en cut this out;
– I lay it on top of my original card and stamp en stick it with some tape;
– I put my stencil on top of the card and than I started to distress ink the whole card;
– I colored my image with my alcoholmarkers;
– I punched out some black stars and glued than on my card;
– I glued my card on some black cardstock;
– I edited the sentiment in photoshop because I would like white text on a black background;
– I placed everything on a blanc card;
– and that is it!

Does the smell of the witch’s fall brew already come to you?

I would like to enter my card into the following fabulous challenges:
