New Anything Goes Challenge at Ally's Angels

 Hi eveyone,

The weekend is almost upon us. I hope you have had a good week.

We have a new challenge beginning at Ally's Angels and as always the theme is........

Anything Goes

I have coloured up one of my favourtie Christmas Tilda's for this card called Show Me the Way Tilda and I've masked her with the very cute Baby Rudolph. 

There is a hidden tag at the top of the card, but I completely forgot to photograph it! 

I have coloured the scene with distress reinkers, sprinkled some shabby white frantage around the outside of the image and heat set it. For the lying snow I have sprinkled on some Crafters Companion faux snow. To create the moon I used a  mask from Clarity Stamps.

Skin: Vintage photo, tattered rose, worn lipstick

Hair: Walnut stain, antique linen

Coat and Hat: Faded jeans

Rudolph: Gathered twigs, antique linen, worn lipstick, fired brick

The poinsettia was cut using a John Next Door die in coordinating paper and I added a few stamens to the centre. The branches have been cut from a Sue Wilson die.

Ally is giving away this gorgeous paper pad to the lucky winner of this challenge:

That's all from me today.

I am going to take a break for the lead up to Christmas, so I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and wish you all a healthy and happy New Year.

Thank you for popping in.

New Challenge At Creative Inspirations

 Good morning everyone,

I hope you have had a good week.

Today we have our final challenge of 2021 beginning at Creative Inspirations and the theme is.......

Christmas Time

I recently went to a wonderful craft fair and bought this Whimsy stamp which I think is adorable. The name of the stamp is Polar Bear's Christmas Tree. As always I coloured the image with distress reinkers.

The falling snow is shabby chic frantage which is sprinkled around the image and heat set from underneath. For the lying snow I have used some faux snow by Crafters Companion.

The sledge has been cut from a Joy Crafts die which I have covered with twinklets. I have also sprinkled twinklets onto the flowers to give them a lovely frosty look and added a couple of faux snowballs. Just peeping out from the flowers are two tags from LOTV which have been stamped and embossed with silver emobssing powder.

The card stand has been cut from a Joy Crafts die.

For the insert which slides out of the top of the card I stamped up a Polkadoodles sentiment, and once again used some silver embossing powder. The two tabs at the top were cut from a Tonic die.

This month Crafty Ribbons are sponsoring us. You will receive the lovely selection of ribbons below from them.

That's all from me today, thank you for popping in.

Enjoy the rest of your week.

Happy Crafting:)
