Doodlebug Design Milk & Cookies

Doodlebug Design Milk & Cookies

Happy weekend peeps! I can not believe how long it is since I've used this blog! This is my goal from now on to bring you 2 blogs a month (maybe more if i find the time but it's a start right!).

Some of you may or may not have watched my Live facebook video a while ago on the new Doodlebug Design Christmas range for 2017 Milk and Cookies. If you didn't and would like to you can find it here.(be aware its about an hour but I'm sure you can skip some things)

In this video I promised that I would post my finished cards that I based around the simple card maps I had drawn for myself. 

So here goes... A list of the products used will be at the end of this post and linked to my website so you can go shopping if you like what you see!

 

As you can see I like to keep my cards clean and simple, with not much fuss, adding a few embellishments. My favourite embellishments to use are buttons, sequins, epoxy dots and paper string.  

Giving myself card maps helps me to establish boundaries and allows me to create quickly without having to think to much. This is great when you need to make cards to sell or have limited time on your hands.

Now for the goodies I used....

Last but not least I know you all like a FREEBIE. The Card Maps I have used are all on a page for you to use when making cards. Please don't copy the page for others but share the link to the page to spread the love. You can find the card map page HERE.

Have fun creating

Shaker Card Fun with Sweet Stamp Shop and Doodlebug

Shaker Card Fun with Sweet Stamp Shop and Doodlebug

Lest we forget on this ANZAC DAY 2015…..Hubby and my eldest attended an ANZAC day service in our local town while I stayed at home snuggled in bed with my youngest. It’s so cold here at the moment and it’s not even winter yet! I had to get into my craft room and put some brightness back into my day! I knew exactly what i wanted to use and that was the new Doodlebug Design Collection Sunkissed. I love this collection for all it’s summer time themes and the colours are so bright and cheerful! I thought I’d make some Shaker Cards to add to the fun..Shaker cards are a lot of fun to make and add something unique to the front of a card or a project life page.

For the first card, I used the Sweet Stamp shop Beach Bum Stamp Set and stamped lots of the beach balls and sand buckets and spades, and a sandcastle onto X press it Blending card and coloured in with my Copics. I then cut a template for the stripes from a scrap piece of card stock, traced and then cut again using the stripes paper from the 6×6 Sunkissed paper pad. Next I adhered some acetate to the back of the paper, placed some foam tape around the edges of the template so the sandcastle, beach balls and buckets didn’t fall out when i placed them into each open stripe. I finished the card off by sticking the small polka dot paper onto the tape to hold the bits and pieces in and matted using the blue paper. I added some Enamel dots, paper twine and a stamp to finish it off.

So much fun seeing the balls and the buckets sliding around when you shake the card!

The next card I made I used some Nesting Circles and scollop circles to cut out my circles and scolloped border. Using the same technique of acetate, foam tape and some card stock on the back, I added some colourful sequins to the middle. Finishing the card with a Sunshine from the Sunkissed icons Sticker sheet, a few enamel dots and the same stamp. I love the noise this makes when you shake it around!
