Beautiful 'Winnie Wonderful Time' Stamp coloured with a Soft Colour Palette

Good morning everyone,

I hope you are keeping well.

As we are into December now,  I am popping in to share some more Christmas inspiration for Polkadoodles Crafting.

I couldn't resist colouring up this cute stamp again called 'Wonderful Time' from the Winter Wishes collection.

I actually started my Christmas shopping last week, I had a day off from work and had a lovely time wandering around the shops taking in all the festive gorgeousness (I'm not sure that is a word, but I like it lol). 

Links to the materials I have used are at the bottom of this post, just click on a picture to be taken directly to the product.



I have kept the colours very soft using lilac, grey and iced spruce and have coloured it with distress reinkers.

DI list:Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick
Hair: Walnut Stain, Antique Linen, Black Soot
Coat, Hat and Scarf: Milled Lavender
Scarf, Hat and Boots: Iced Spruce
Sleigh: Hickory Smoke, Black Soot
Snowman and Rabbit: Hickory Smoke, Worn Lipstick, Ripe Persimmon

I haven't used Christmas papers on this card, but instead chose to use some distress ink spotted and plain papers from the Lil Miss Sugarpops collection. 


I have used a whole range of beautiful Polkadoodles projects on this card. Tucked underneath the image is a gorgeous fancy snowflake die which I have covered in twinklets to give that lovely icy look.


Peeping out from underneath the flowers are some gorgeous spruce dies, holly leaves and I've cut on one of the fabulous tag dies to use as a sentiment. The sentiment is from the 'Most Wonderful Joy' set of clear stamps with a clear ink pad and sprinkled on some silver embossing powder.


For the inside of the card, I cut the largest Posydoodles circle die and another sentiment from the 'Most Wonderful Joy' stamp set again embossing it with silver embossing powder.

That's all from me today.

Thank you for popping in.

Hugs
Gina xx

Winter Wishes - Snow Much Fun Stamp Coloured with Distress Re-inkers

Good morning everyone, 

Today I'm sharing an inspirational Polkadoodles Christmas card coloured with distress reinkers.

This cute stamp is called 'Snow Much Fun'.

I cut out the largest of the Posydoodles Circle dies and stamped her with a stazon timber brown ink pad onto Artistico extra white water colour paper.

Links to the materials I have used a re attached to the pictures, just click on them and it will take directly to the product.


I love red and grey together especially when making Christmas cards, but the red can be a tricky as it can bleed. My tip is to let it dry thoroughly before applying the next colour and lean on a tissue so as not to smudge the red.

I used my pebeo drawing gum to create the dots, this acts as a mask and rubs off once you have finished colouring.

The snowflakes peeping out at the top were cut with the fabulous fancy snowflake die and I've sprinkled on some twinklets to give them a lovely frosty look.

Hair: Walnut Stain, Antique Linen
Coat, Boots and Hat: Hickory Smoke, Black Soot
Red: Barn Door, Aged Mahogany

 The papers are from Winnie White Christmas digi Paper 1 collection which I have edged with white gesso. These papers are really versatile and can be used all year round.

Tucked underneath the flowers are a couple of spruce leaves (sorry it's a bit difficult to make them out white on white), but they are absolutely gorgeous and cut perfectly. I've added some twinklets to them which gives a lovely frosty look. 


The sentiment is from the Merry and Bright set of sentiments. I stamped the 'Noel' sentiment onto one of the Posydoodle tag dies with a clear stamp pad and sprinkled over some silver embossing powder.
