Hi friends, what a wonderful day we are having today. It’s very warm, the sun is shining and the lockdown is starting to ease. I stay right on the doorstep of a country park so my son and I went for a walk through the woods. It was so lovely to be able to do that again 🥰
Hope your all enjoying the ease of lockdown!
Today I am sharing this magical mystical being, as soon as I saw this set, I had to have it. It takes me back to my childhood and one of my favourite movies ‘The Last Unicorn’. I could watch this cartoon movie over and over 🥰
The unicorn is very easy to colour, just go over all the artists lines with a light grey marker to enhance the lines and this also enhances the white of the unicorn. The mane and tail can be coloured in many different ways, I chose the rainbow effect.
I made my own stencils for creating the clouds and the hilly background. Made out of cardstock. I used a pencil to mark out my designs (used a circular object for clouds) and then cut it out.
I used distress oxide inks for my background, adhered onto black cardstock using double sided tape and that is my card finished, I have left the top of the card with no other embellishments as I shall leave it in my card stash for future.
The sentiments in this stamp set are wonderful and I love the fonts on them. I hope you like my card and I would love to hear what your favourite childhood movie was 🎥
Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog. Today I have another card for the EDS/HSD Instagram Awareness Blog Hop that I’m participating in. This Hop ends on May 30th and there is many sponsors and participants taking part. I have chosen the stunning digital stamp A Sprinkle of Flowers from Polka Dot Orchard as they are a sponsor of the Hop.
To make my card I printed off the image onto Neenah Crest Solar White and coloured in with my Promarkers. I adhered some black card as my background and then adhered to my c5 base.
I used some of my Arteza Real Brush Pens to splash some colour onto my card to add some additional interest. Added sequins using PVA glue and my card is complete.
Hi friends, welcome back to my crafty cove. Today is Day 2 for adding my projects to Coffee Loving Spring/Summer 2020 Hop and the EDS/HSD Instagram Hop and I have made a Thank You Card with the theme of Hot Chocolate|Cocoa, I love coffee and hot chocolate so making cards with this theme is so much fun. I would like you to join me on my blog 🌸🌸
This digital set comes with several sentiments which you can use for many different occasions. I have made a card with this set before I will link to it below.
Here is my finished card

Hi friends, I’m back with another new release from Polka Dot Orchard and I am also linking this onto a Hop The EDS/HDS Instagram hop. This Hop is all about raising awareness for the disease EDS/HDS you will be able to find the hop using the hashtag #myEDSchallenge #myHSDchallenge and #EhlersDanlos. The theme for this hop is something that makes you happy.
I chose to make a card using this set as this card is to cheer someone up. This card didn’t take me long to make either with little supplies used. I used Kraft Card as a base for a 6” x 6” card. Black and Kraft Card, Bakers Twine in neutral, Pebble Ink from Spectrum Noir and white coloured pencil.
I used my photo editor app to reduce the size of the mask and filled the page. Printed off and coloured in with white Derwent coloured pencil. The sentiment is from the same set. I used a blending brush with the Pebble Ink and blended onto the surrounds of my sentiment. Used Black card as a border for both the card and sentiment, wrapped some twine around the main Kraft Card and adhered together with double sided tape. Used 3D foam tape to the back of my sentiment and that’s my completed card. So simple to do and I love that I can alter the images to either enlarge or reduce their sizes. That’s why I love digital stamps. Here is my finished card.
If you use Instagram then please join in with the fun. There are 26 companies all sponsoring this Hop with prizes also. Polka Dot Orchard is one of them.
Thank you for spending some time with me today, I really appreciate it and would love to hear from you. I’ll have another Blog out on Monday. Until then, have a great weekend and keep safe #socialdistancing

Oh my Oh my, this set is wonderful and I can even make a cute card out of insects. This card was so quick and simple to make, perfect if you are wanting something in a hurry. Now to the details of my project.
I printed the images off the set onto Neenah Classic Crest White Card and started to colour them in using my Promarkers.
A quick and simple card to make. Perfect for boys and the sentiment is from the same digital set.

Do you need a last minute Mother’s Day card, well Polka Dot Orchard has the perfect set. It’s called A Mother’s Love , it comes with this adorable image of mother and baby and 5 sentiments.
Let’s dive into my card. I wanted to make a large 8” x 8” card so I resized the image on my editing program and added the sentiment which I thought is perfect for Mother’s Day or even a congratulations card for a New Baby. I printed onto Neenah Solar White Card.
After printing I knew that I wanted the Mother’s Hair to be the focal point of this card. New Mums deserve nice hair too. The baby I wanted smooth and I didn’t want to create defining features with blending her skin, I hope I kept true for a newborn baby.
Mother’s Hair ~
Baby Hair ~ Cinnamon
This stampset is wonderful for creating a quick card. All I needed was some red card for my border and white sequins to finish off.
You will find this card and others from the design team on Friends of Polka Dot Orchard Facebook page. Why not pop over and get some inspiration.
That’s it for today, hope you liked my card. I would love to hear your comments and please share all your makes with Polka Dot Orchard on our Facebook page.
