White With 1 - December Challenge

It's already December in Australia so of course the new White With 1 challenge has started.

    

Well that colour screamed Christmas to me, so I went routing through last years' photos to see if there were any that I'd missed.


I've been hoarding this reindeer paper for far too long and I'm pleased to have put it to good use on this page.


I also raided my stash for all the embellishments and had fun stacking them up in the three places indicted on the sketch.


Supplies:
Papers: Echo Park, Celebrate Christmas; scraps from my stash
Punch: ek, scalloped edger
Embellishments: gifted from Helen my Australian penpal
Stickers: Simple Stories, Misteltoe kisses & Handmade Holidays
Alphas: Simple Stories, Legacy

I'm sad to say that this will be my last gig with White With 1. I've really been struggling with creating scrapbook pages as every time I sit down to put one together I get a bit emotional and realise how much I'm missing this year due to Covid. Then I don't want to scrap any more and put it all away. So I made the decision to step down, but who knows maybe 2021 will be a better year and I'll start scrapping again and play along with their challenges. I really hope so, but I'm fearful that there is still a very long way to go.

Thanks so much for dropping by today, it's been very much appreciated. 

Stay safe and try to keep crafting!

Polkadoodles Christmas Holiday Too Cute Release - Bella Bear Delivering Gifts

Are you loving these cute new digi stamps from Polkadoodles? Me too! Today it's the turn of Bella Bear Delivering Gifts.


I created a background by die cutting a stitched circle and placing a digi interlocking circles paper from Winnie White Christmas Papers 3 behind it.

Bella was then coloured in matching shades using Copic pens and popped up onto pads before adhering over the window.


The sentiment is from Christmas Fishes and I used a Posydoodles die cut tag for the Happy.

You can see all the the stamps and loads more DT inspiration over at Polkadoodles - HERE.

Polkadoodles Christmas Holiday Too Cute Release - Agnes Ice Skating

Today I'm sharing the next of my DT cards created with the Polkadoodles Christmas Holiday Too Cute Digi Release. I'm using another of the super cute elephant digis - Agnes Ice Skating.


I cut a mask for Agnes and then created a chilly tree background using the Park Life stencil and the icy skating rink using Textures Galore. I matted this onto a paper from Wintertime.


Agnes was coloured using Copic pens in traditional Christmas reds and green once the mask was removed. I added a sentiment in the bottom left corner using a stamp from Christmas Fishes.

Polkadoodles Christmas Holiday Too Cute Release - Eli Elephant Splashing Puddles

Today I'm sharing the first of my DT cards created with the Polkadoodles Christmas Holiday Too Cute Digi Release. I'm kicking off with one of my favourites from this release Eli Elephant Splashing Puddles.

I die cut a stitched circle using Posydoodles Circles and Christmas Blessings paper to create a snowy background for Eli. I snipped off the puddle and attached a punched snowflake to the boot to cover up where the puddled joins the boot. 



I added some extra punched snowflakes and a strip of left over paper and used Copic pens to colour Eli in toning shades to the paper. I finished off my cad by adding a sentiment from Christmas Fishes.

Thursday Thoughts

Today I'm sharing the card I created for the STAMPlorations Stencil Challenge.


I had someone in mind when I chose the products for this card.


I know they love Scotland and this Geometric Stag stencil jumped out of my stash. I inked through it with black as I wanted it to look very dramatic and imposing. Then before I lifted the stencil I added sparkle using a Wink of Stella pen.


A simple sentiment from Festive Phrases and I was done.

Here's a closer pic to show the sparkle.


Supplies:
Stamps: Funky Fossil, Festive Phrases
Stencil: Funky Fossil, Geometric Stag
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black; Wink of Stella, clear

Huge thanks for stopping by today. I really appreciate you taking the time.

Stay safe and keep crafting!

Polkadoodles Winnie North Pole Digi Release - Production Line

I'm back again with another super cute image from the Polkadoodles Winnie North Pole Release. Today I'm using Production Line and this could just be my favourite of them all.


Well they all look like they're having fun packing up the Christmas gifts, but maybe that little gingerbread girl going down the chute to Santa's sleigh is just too excited. Winnie is giving her such a look!


I printed an extra copy of this image and popped some of them up onto foam pads for extra dimension. the papers I used are from Scrumptious Sugar.

I'll be back tomorrow with my final share of cards using this new release, but in the meantime you can see all the the stamps and loads more DT inspiration over at Polkadoodles - HERE.
