Polkadoodles Bee Happy Digis.....I have been playing.......

Happy Sunday my lovelies,

I hope you have all had a lovely week-end so far!

I have been playing this morning with some new digi images from Polkadoodles

they are gorgeous


Here are the three cards I made today...

I used a white square card blank for this card. I used the backing papers and sentiment stamp from the Polkadoodles Pen & Paper Circle Issue 1.....

PLEASE NOTE: The Pen & Paper Circle Issue 2 is available now for pre-order until the 7th March. If you don't want to miss out make sure you hurry to get your order in before the deadline!

I matted and layered the image, backing papers and textured cardstock, inking the edges first with a Letraset rose pink promarker pen.I also added a flower brad and dragonfly brad to the layers before sticking to the base.

I have used pink, lilac and black bakers twine and plaited the three colours together.

I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of the backing paper, cut out and attached as shown with foam pads.

I love this coloured digi, its perfect for a lovely cheery card and for any occasion too.

For the second card I used backing papers and sentiment from the

I shrunk the Bee Happy digi so it was quite small and printed an A4 sheet of these. I cut three of the images out and coloured with Letraset Promarkers.
I added gingham ribbon to the backing paper before sticking it to the base card.
I matted and layered the coloured images onto textured cardstock and backing paper,inking the edges with a yellow promarker.
I added Stickles Diamond glitter glue on the bee wings and the trail behind it.
I wanted the squares of the images to look like tiles so when the Stickles had dried I used Glossy Accents to cover the squares.
To finish I added a gingham bow and cut out the sentiment to fit between the tiles.


The third card I made I have used the coloured Bee Happy Digi

and the

I covered the base card with a sheet of backing paper from the cd.
I printed out the Bee Happy Digi three times and cut out various elements from two of the images so I could decoupage them.
I matted the image onto co-ordinating decorative paper, added the cut out elements with foam pads and used Stickles glitter glue in Fruit Punch and Diamond.
I pleated organza ribbon as shown, threading it through a cut out ribbon slider from the cd. I added a flower and flower gem to the centre.
To finish I added a greeting and a butterfly both from the cd.

I hope you like these cards I have made. I wanted to show you three ways of using these images. I have other ideas too how to use these images, but I ran out of time today!
The great thing with CD's and Digi's is the fact that there are so many different ways to use them. It's just a case of using your imagination!LOL
