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:

Aud Sentiments Challenge #260-Queen Bee-The Paper Shelter

Hello my crafty friends! It’s time for another challenge over at Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog!

Our theme for this week is: Anything Goes + A Sentiment (Please make sure your card and sentiment follow the theme)

Our sponsor is: The Paper Shelter

This is my card using the image called The Queen Bee. Isn’t she the cutest queen you’ve ever seen?

The digistamps are nice and sharp and print very nicely! Completely ready for coloring …

How I made my card:

  1. First, I printed this incredibly fun digital stamp “The Queen Bee” on a somewhat thicker paper;
  2. Beforehand I googled for a suitable bee sentiment! I placed it with a nice font next to my digistamp
    in my photoshop elements;
  3. Then I colored it with my copic markers;
  4. I also distressed the card with some distress ink. Only to get rid of the very white!
  5. I like this stamp so much that I don’t want too much hassle around it. On the background of the card I decided to only choose some nice matching colors of cardstock and that is it.

And I don’t have much more to tell you dear craft friends! This is all. Nothing more fun than coloring and making cards, right?

Digi Choosday Challenge / Wk 36 – Halloween (A 3D project) – 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: Halloween (use of 2 backing papers and to make a 3D project with it)! Now I have a little problem when it comes to Halloween. I run wild and craft and tinker as if my life depended on it! Halloween is just kind of a muse of mine 🙂 So I tinkered all kinds of things with the beautiful Witchie Witchie downloadbundle from Polkadoodles with beautiful Halloween colors and pictures: with all that beauty you will be sweet all afternoon!

This is what I have made:


I started with the little “witch-hat-box”. I searched all over internet to find me a pattern that I had in my mind. And I used a little piece of black cardstock to make a witch hat too. I had some bow embellishments in my stash that matches perfect with the purple paper from the box.

Details about the big green box:
– I first printed out the paper for the gift box and the pictures on somewhat thicker cardstock (300 grm);
– I cut everything out and put it together and glued everything together;
– I still had some black ribbons lying around and I slung them around the hand barrels of the gift box;;
– and it is actually not much more exciting. But the paper and pictures are so beautiful, all you have to do is print and cut!

The shadowbox card is a bit more work! But if you like fuzzy cutting it shouldn’t be a problem! Below you can see the front of my card. It is very simple: I pasted some of the beautiful paper on the black front. I cut out the black cat, a picture included in the Witchie Witchie kit, pasted it on white cardstock and matted it on black cardstock. The focus should be on the inside.

I also covered the inside with paper from the kit on the left. The background of the box itself is also included in the package. I printed the background a few times in the same format. Then I started to work up the background in 3D technology. So I cut out the various elements and glued them on with foam tape to give it more depth. In the foreground I have pasted all the “scary” melon faces.

As said all the paper (except the black cardstock) comes from The Witchie Witchie download bundle from Polkadoodles! The only thing you need yourself is some embellishments, cardstock, glue and scissors is of course also handy 🙂

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

Who believes it is September already? Not me! But it is really true: So, 1st Monday of September time for a new challenge on the Place to Start challenge blog! We ask you to create a children’s card this time. And I still had this nice digi-stamp, so what are we waiting for ?!

And this has become my card:

This is how I made my card:
– I donwloaded this free digistamp Nikki from Polkadoodles ;
– I colored the image with my alcoholmarkers and gave it some shadow with colorpencils;

– I got so enthusiastic about all those dots and the result that I made a few more with glitter markers;
– The sentiment I used also comes from Polkadoodles;
– I also drew some movement with a black gelly roller. Now it looks like the girl is skipping up a bit;
– I placed my colored cart on a beautiful red card!

And super simple but very nice card I think ?! I believe I can make someone happy with this again 😉
