Oh my, new digi stamps from Polkadoodles!

Hello again,

Thank you once again for dropping by, I really do appriciate your visits :)

I wanted to share with you a quick make I have been working on so I could try out the fabulous re-mastered digi stamps from Digi world at Polkadoodles - the fabulous Nikky Hall has taken her already lush Pretty Sweet CD and updated the girls and made them availalbe as individual digi stamps for download!! And they are LUSH....don't take my word for it go take a peek you won't regret it......Pretty Sweet Girls

I have used Piper Playing for my make today and unusual for me I have made a gift bag!

All of the backing papers are also from the Pretty Sweet CD collection and I have cut and glued them in place around the tote bag (tote bag is a sillouette cut file from Birds Cards)

Behing the image I added a couple of layers of various die-cuts (from the pile on my desk, as I tend to cut loads at once!) and a ribbon strip.  The floweres are rolled paper and ribbon - top tip - the ribbon flowers are made by knotting the ribbon, then knotting again about half inch away, then add a third knot over the top the first two!!! a bit fiddly but it works and is not as dangerous to my fingers as the rolled ribbon floweres where I have to use my glue gun (that loves to burn me!! lol).

The tag is made by doing a second Piper character but only colouring her face and then cutting it out with a 1" punch - a great way to use up any images where you were not happy with the hair or clothing!

A few bits of ribbon and job done!

I hope you like the finished result and do go check out the new Digital downloads from Polkadoodles

Happy Crafting
