Wall art

Hello all it Anjie here with todays Studio 12 make.
I bought some cheap canvases a while ago and decided to use one for todays project. I printed out some papers, sentiments and images from the Studio 12 CD Picknix Collection 1. I cut them all up and inked around the edges of everything with a blue distress ink pad. I then printed out my surname in one of the lovely alphas from the CD, and again inked around the edges. I used a PVA glue to stick everything in place, then added a bit of lace, a clock die cut and some flowers and gems. Lastly I added some faux stictching around the edges.

Once our new extension is built this will be hung on the wall in there.

Lots Of Layers Plus Pink And Red

You don't want to miss this opportunity to make any necessary Valentines as the prizes are the latest Cherry Blossom CD - a definite must! You have until 12 noon on Sunday 10 February to enter and now here's some fabulous inspiration from our Design Team to get you going.

Asha - The gorgeous papers for this card came from the Sugar Birdies - the first ever Polka Doodles CD. The image and sentiment are from the latest CD called Cherryblossom Lane. Isn't great when you can mix and match the CDs so beautifully? Kept my embellishments to a minimum: sheer ribbon and bow which I stained with red distress ink and a couple of red bling from my stash.


Anjie I made this weeks card for Mrs Polka Doodles' birthday. The papers are from the fabulous Studio 12 CD Picknix collection 1. I've printed them onto printable canvas to give some texture, frayed the edges and layered onto red card and kraft card. The cute image is from the new Cherry Blossom Lane CD. I've added some Marianne D diecuts, some flowers and gems. Everything is distressed with a red distress ink. Finally I've added some faux stitching.


Fliss I've made a rather romantic card this week inspired by those colours and love is definitely blooming lol. The papers and all the other elements come from the latest Cherryblossom Lane CD. I covered my card blank and added layers of panels all distressed with an emery board and inked fuchsia pink. I hand cut my hearts using paper patterns, embossing one red pearl heart with a hearts folder and layering the second one up with a lovely sentiment printed on pink stripy paper and cut to a heart shape. I finished off with a decoupaged rose.


Astrid  I have made a card with red and pink with a beautiful stamp of Polka Doodles, called
Babsie You will find her in the shop. Also with the text. The edge at the bottom comes from  the  Cherryblossom Lane CD. The flowers are handmade. And the cute little hearts from my local store.


Sally - I have made this cute card with an image, sentiments and papers from Cherry Blossom Lane CD Rom. I love all the papers on this CD Rom.  I cut him out and mounted him on a Spellbinder die which I embossed first, dusted it with pan pastels and inked the edges. Backed the papers on red cardstock and created a background.


Karon - I have used a couple of CD's to make my card this week.  First there is Winnie, from the Double Sprinkles of Kraft CD,  I coloured her with my alcohol markers and popped her up, as well as the flowers.  The patterned papers came from the new Cherry Blossom Lane CD and I have layered them up on some red card stock.  I added a little bit of tulle and a button to finish off.

Alethea - I found this theme a bit of a challenge as I'm not a fan of red and pink together so it's not
totally red and pink like some of the other cards. My images and papers are from the Cherry Blossom Lane CD and the sentiment is from the Studio 12 Picknix Collection 1 CD. I used this gorgeous pre-coloured image and layered it on a spellbinders die, then finished the card with buttons, flowers, pearls and ribbon and some kindyglitz for a bit of sparkle!!
  
Monica - Usually I don´t use red and pink together. I think it´s hard to match them in the same project and this week was really a challenge to me. But at the end of the journey, I really liked it. I made my card this week using these two CD's: Cherry Blossom Lane CD (I love all the papers on this CD) and Studio 12 CD Picknix collection 1. Everything is distressed with brown makeup. The flower was my creation, some laces and rustic strings,  and a gem to finalize it. And as always, I wrote with my own handwriting the sentiment. Have a great week and good luck. xxx


Miria  I made this big tag using gorgeous Alice in Wonderland stamp set, you can find it on offer in the shop now :) I dabbed the manila cardstock with Distress, sprayed with water, let dry and stamped. I coloured all the images with Distress as well and cut them out. To give dimension I add some corrugated paper, die cuts and a bottle cap with a button



Anne  This week I played with the new Cherryblossom Lane CD.  This is my new favourite so all I've added was a little red ink around the edges and some bakers twine to finish the card.


Lidia  For my card this week I've used the cute fairy Maggie combined with some bright polka dot paper from the Sundae of Seasons CD . I added a glittery heart and button bow to embellish my creation.


Patty  I used a girl from Pretty Sweet CD.  My card  has 3 layers of white, red and pink and I used Prismacolor pencils to colour the girl. This is a birthday card for a little girl.


You have until 12 noon on Sunday 10 February to enter and good luck!

Lots of Layers Plus Pink and Red

Pretty Things

Hi everyone,

JAN here today with the Studio 12 post, it seems ages since I posted on here - hope you are liking our new format combining the two blogs :)

I have something a little different today using the 'All Sewn Up' section of the 'Picknix - Volume 1' CD.  Here's what I made using just one image and one piece of paper ...


Further details of how this was made and what products I used can be found on my blog HERE.

Have a great day,
Hugz, Jan xx

Handmade With Love

Today i have a fun & fast project to show you. This is actually a valentines bookmark i made although it could actually be for any occasion really. Perfect if you give someone a book :)
I designed the whole project on Craft Artist using various elements from Picknix Volume 1. As it is a bookmark it needed to be pretty flat as i am one of those people who hates bent pages in books, i like them all flat nice and new! So all i did was print it out as it was then layer it onto another paper. I then added some pink twine to give it a more homemade rustic feel to it.

Hope you like my project today :)

Ruth:  I've taken a trip back in time and used Sugar Birdies for my inspiration!  I printed the butterflies out then cut them out (adding stickles to the outer edge) and layered it onto another circle card base.  To make the scalloped edges I punched out lots of black hearts and layered them so you can just see the top bits!  A few pearls here and there and some ribbon from my stash.


Anne I opted used 'In The Garden' from Studio 12 Picknix Collection 1 for my card this week.
 Layered it all up in my graphics programe, fiddled with it, fiddled some more then printed it out and stuck it onto a card front.  I then added a little bit of stickles to some of the petals and the job was done.


Margaret-   I have used Flowers and sentiments from the  Sugar Birdies CD and the image is from Back to nature   "shake a tail feather " section, as is the backing paper which I have grey scaled before printing. I have used the Mariannedesigns open flowers LR 0133 and card candie "Ritz" and then sprayed the lot with a bit of bling.



Lucy ~ I printed this Polkadoodle paper off AGES ago and have been dying to use it. So for this theme I thought it was perfect. I have kept in quite simple. The stamped sentiment is from the Sensational Sentiment stamp set.


Anjie It's not often I do black and white for a monochrome challenge but thought I would this time.
The image and papers are from my fave Polka Doodles CD the Candy Doodles Collectors Edition. I've coloured the image using Copics and ProMarkers. I've made flowers using the Marianne D Creatables LR0162 die, using a circle punch and have also made my own ribbon flowers. I've also used a border punch, a bit of lace and a bow from my stash.


Shell- for my card this week I wanted to go vintage, so I used tones of brown for the Monochrome theme. The stamps is from PPC 4, I used only 7 copics from the E family to colour the image, the papers are from the Sugarplum Daisy CD, I then added a few pearls and flowers to finish off the card.



Clare - I have made a tea light holder card for my project this week. The gorgeous papers, images and sentiment is from the brand new Cherryblossom Lane CD. I have added Silver Stickles Glitter Glue on the butterfly wings and the centres of the flowers. 



JAN:  I have made a card for my monochrome themed project this week.  The paper, sentiment and gorgeous flowers are all from the 'All Around and Everywhere' CD. I have used some of the flowers on their own and layered the big one up, adding some ink and a bit of glitter around the edges for extra effect.


Eva - I have used this cute image from the new Cherry Blossom Lane CD. The flowers are also from there. I coloured these in Pro Markers and added some glitz with a Sakura pen. I used plain black and white cardstock and added a couple of black stick on pearls. The sentiment was stamped with my mini alphabet stamp set from Hampton Arts.


Lou - I have used images and papers from the "Not for Girls" CD and tried (!) to create a male themed card. I have even added some mica flakes to highlight the skulls, motorbike lights and the main topper. Card has been finished with some man string, skull and grommits ... lol


Lizzie For my card  I have used the CD Not for girlsa Marianne die for the leaves called Open Flowers. I made the flowers, used some ribbon and glitter glue from my stash! Hope you like it!!!


Kitty - I decided to go with an all pink theme! All the elements on this card are from the Cherry Blossom Lane CD. I simply added some twine, a button and pearls..oh and some glitter!


Good luck with the challenge - deadline is Sunday 3 February at 12noon GMT!  And please remember our rules!

Flowers Feed The Soul

Hello Crafters, it's Dee here with a cute little canvas for you.  I applied acrylics paints in pinks and greens for the base then added some spots with a pearl paint dabber.  I scribbled round the spots and added some strings of dots with a pink Promarker to add some interest.  The Flower, signpost, sentiment, leafy sprig and backing paper are all from the Studio 12 Heavenly Garden Collection (one of my faves).  Some distress ink round the oval just helps 'lift it off' the canvas background, some bakers twine and buttons just finish the piece off nicely.
Sorry it's a bad picture, but I'm having a few issues with my camera (and bad skills on my part, lol)

Don't forget to check back on Thursday for the next Studio 12 make, and Friday for the Polka Doodles challenge, plenty of inspiration for you all from the uber talented Design Teams.

When you run out of ink.....

Well that was the dilemma I had this week when making my Studio 12 project .... went to print out my papers and embellishments only to find my printer telling me in no uncertain terms "NO way" . To say I then went in to crafting melt down was an understatement and had a headless chicken moment. Off I went to see what I had spirited away from  previous projects which turned out to be very little. So taking a deep breath finally came up with this ...


 My card is very simple with an embossed hearts background and using a grouped image I had previously made in Craft Artist using "All Sewn Up" embellishments from the Studio 12 Picknix collection. However the only paper I had left was several squares and I didn't want to just matt and layer them so, I turned them in to chevrons instead! They are so easy to make and I think look so effective.

Cut the papers in to smaller squares - mine were 2cm x 2cm. Then cut in half diagonally ....


 
Now plan out your chevron design and where possible don't match the design up ...!


I put the black bands on to add another layer and not for any other reason. With hindsight, I should of stitched the chevrons in place to match the sentiment ....



This is a great way to use up your paper scraps, although slightly time consuming but isn't it great to try something different every now and then? So what will you do with your scraps today?

Happy Birthday Nikky!

Now for some gorgeous Design Team inspiration!
Good luck with the challenge - deadline for entries is Sunday 27 January at 12noon GMT.

Anjie For this weeks challenge I've used an image, sentiment and papers from the fabulous Candy Doodles Collectors edition CD. I've pierced around the edges with my pokey tool and then drawn on faux stitches. I've coloured the image using ProMarkers and added a few buttons and a ribbon. I've kept this card quite simple as I usually do with male cards.


Asha - This week I'm channelling spring and made a "New Home" card with these fresh and beautiful papers from the Cherryblossom Lane CD. The pretty birdhouse image is from the In The Garden CD and I coloured it with alcohol markers. There's plenty of stitching and lace and teeny tiny twine bows to  make the love-birds feel at home.


Sally - This week's challenge is Stitching and Lace so this is my card called "Put Your Feet Up!"
I decided to look at the Cherryblossom Lane CD for inspiration. I found this lovely image of Mr. Bunny in his PJs, so I went from there.  I printed out the gingham pattern onto textured card stock so it looked like material and cut out a duvet and pillow using my Spellbinders dies, edged it in lace and put faux stitching around it. The hessian dotty background came from Picknix 1 CD in the Welcome Home papers. I added three ticket sentiments also from the Picknix 1 CD and coloured them with pan pastels.


Karon - For this weeks challenge I was quite surprised to actually find lace in my stash!  I used papers and the sentiment from the Sundae of Seasons CD - such pretty colours and shapes for all the different seasons.  I went for something to remind me of Spring because we have so much snow on the ground at the moment.  I inked all the edges of all the layers, added a little faux stitching around the edge of my orange layer.  And then added a little crocheted flower and button to finish off.


Miria  This cute couple of  bunnies from the Cherryblossom Lane CD is just perfect for my quick and easy wedding card , the paper is from the same cd. I decorated the back with another coloured stampie, added some faux stitching with Silver Wink of Stella and some lace, that's it!



Fliss I've gone all cute for my card this week and I've used a pre-coloured image as I'm a bit short on time at the moment. The cute bunny and all the other elements on my creation are from the gorgeous Cherryblossom Lane CD. My paper has stitching in the design and I added faux stitching with a bright pink gel pen. I added some pretty lace on either side of the image panel and finished off with the lovely butterfly.


So there you have it! The challenge runs until 12 noon on Sunday 27 January and good luck!

A Song In My Heart Canvas

Hello folks, it's Fliss here today to share a canvas with you that will show you that the gorgeous little robin from the Studio 12 Picknix Collection 2 - Gingerbread Twist CD isn't just for Christmas lol.
I've gotten very inky and painty here and still have green fingers (not from gardening you understand!) and hope you like what I've created.


To begin with, I painted my 20cm square canvas with a shade of acrylic paint called Early Spring Green - can you tell what I'm longing for?! I then used a chicken wire stencil to apply green gold and olive green acrylic paints. As this looked a little darker than I wanted, I added a light wash of the spring green watered down to soften the effect.
I then printed out one of the fern digital stamps from the Heavenly Garden section of the Picknix Collection 1 CD on to some vintage music score. I coloured the fern with Crushed Olive and Mowed Lawn Distress inks using a cosmetic sponge and cut them out when dry.
I then tore up some of the scraps of leftover music score and glued this to the canvas before sponging on a little of the Crushed Olive to blend the paper in. I glued the fern fronds on top.
To finish, I added the cute little robin using my favourite trick of adding foam tape near the top of the image and double sided tape at the base which gives a very realistic look to the little chap. I added some computer generated text inked with the Crushed Olive and a small heart trimmed from the leftover music score coloured with Barn Door Distress ink.

Stay tuned for another project from the Studio 12 teamies on Thursday. Don't forget that there's 15% off at the Polka Doodles Online Shop at the moment so now's the time to stock up on those wish list goodies!
Hugs, Fliss xx

And if you need any inspiration in using the freebie image, then look no further - see what the fab Design Team have come up with!

Ruth:  I've kept mine quite simple and used Promarkers to colour the fab image from Emma, glitter glue, fancy dies and papers from Sugarplum Daisy.  I even found some spotty ribbon in my stash and a rather cute cupcake brad!  The ticket stamp is from the Pen and Paper Circle Club issue 5 magazine.  The brown card is from my stash along with the half pearls.



Anjie - For this card I have used the fab free image from  Emma Canning, which is coloured with ProMarkers. The papers are from the new Cherry Blossom Lane CD. I've cut out a few more flowers from the paper and glittered and decoupaged them. I've used a punch on the bottom of the card and also decorated the inside of the card with the same papers. I've finished it off with some faux stitching.


Shell - For my card this week I have used the fab freebie from Emma Canning (you can find more here)
The papers are from the Gingerbread Twist CD. I have coloured the image with a mixture of copics and promarkers, the tickets are from the Sugarplum Daisy CD.  I have added a few stitches around the finished image and some dots to the tickets, then added a few pearls and flowers to finish of the card.

JAN:  I used the gorgeous Emma Canning cupcake image as a focal point for a card this week.  Both background papers are from the 'Paper Boutique - Volume 1' CD. The image is coloured with Promarkers and nestles on a pretty little paper doily which I thought fits the cupcake theme nicely!  The sentiment can be found on the 'Sugarplum Daisy' CD and the flowers are cut from scraps of the background papers using a template from the 'Candy Doodles' CD (one of my favourites!)  


Margaret - I have used the lovely Emma Canning free digi image and coloured her with Promarker pens, all the background papers, sentiment ticket and the flowers are made using the newest of the Polka Doodles CD's Cherryblossom Lane and a couple of brads from my stash, with a bit of bling using Stickles Glitter Glue.


Anne - I've used papers from the Sugar Birdies CD and coloured Emma's lovely image with prisma pencils.


Kitty - For my card i used the gorgeous free Cupcake image from the uber talented Emma Canning! The papers are from the latest gorgeous collection Cherry Blossom Lane. The flourish is by Marianne Design which you can find here.

Lou - I have also used the gorgeous FREE cupcake image from Emma Canning and the papers are from Cherry Blossom Lane CD. I have embossed the background and added offcuts of ribbon, finishing the card off with some diecut stars.


Clare - Yes I too have used the gorgeous free image from our lovely Emma Canning. The red gingham paper is from the brand new Cherryblossom Lane CD. The yummy cupcake images are from the Sundae of Seasons CD.  I have coloured the image with Flexmarkers and added Red Berry Doodle Dewdrops.



Good luck with the challenge and the hop - deadline for entries is Sunday 20 January at 12noon GMT.
