No Red or Green

Good morning and a very happy 
 Today over at the Digi Choosday blog the team were challenged to make something for Christmas, or winter, but to use no red or green. The challenge for you as always is nothing goes.
So I decided to make another gift, this time not a tag but a bauble for the tree. It could actually be used as a tag to start with I suppose.
I have cut the shape out on my Scan 'n Cut and the papers, image and embellies are all from Winnie White Christmas USB. I just love the soft colours on this collection, and the collection is blinking mahoosive as well, it takes so long to go through it and decide what to use!!!
So I fussy cut all the embellies out by hand except the fence and lamp post which are die cuts from the Polkadoodles Elegant Lamplight and Gate die set. I cut them in silver mirror card and then dulled them down with some white gesso. I also used the white gesso around the edges and at the bottom of the image to look like faux snow.

 Here are some close ups of all the detail.

So why not come and join us to win some digis for yourself, and of course to grab today's massive discount code.

Xmas

Good morning everyone. It's time for a new challenge over at the Polkadoodles blog and this time the team were challenged to make something for Christmas. The challenge for you as always is Anything Goes. And don't forget from December we are changing to a weekly challenge.
Well I'm well on a roll with my Christmas makes, in fact I think they are all just about done now, only a couple of family ones left to do.
So here is my make for this week.


Now this started off as a couple of scraps of paper and a left over small image from one of the cutting room sheets from the Winnie Winterland collection. I looked at them and thought I would make one of my tags with them, and then changed my mind and decided to make a small card. And here is how it happened.
 It was two scraps of paper and one of them was a bit bent over at the edge. But I loved the brightness of them so wanted to use them on a card. So I cut each little strip of paper into four pieces and mounted them onto a piece of white card in a patchwork style.
 I then added some faux stitching with a white gel pen. I then mounted that onto a piece of green glitter card that was also a left over bit.
I then mounted that further onto another piece of white and then green glitter card before mounting onto a small white card blank. Which was also a left over bit of card after I had cut an 7x7 card from a piece of A3 card. I cut the image using the middle die from the Polkadoodles Elegant Nest set of 3 dies and mounted that onto 3D foam. Finally I had a few left over embellies that I added om 3D foam. And there you have it, a card from scraps!

White with a hint of colour

Good morning everyone. I'm here to day with a make for the Polkadoodles blog, the challenge which started last week for the team is to make something for Christmas with just a hint of colour. The challenge for you as always is Anything Goes. 
Before I show you my make I wanted to let you know things are changing at our blog. We are going from a fortnightly challenge to a weekly one, how great is that! That means you can join us more often and be in with a chance to win more challenges. That starts from the beginning of December.

So now on to my make for this challenge, here it is.

I've used the Winnie Winterland collection for this make. I've printed the image onto glossy photo paper and cut it out using the Polkadoodles Bubbleicious Frame die. I've mounted it onto 3D foam and added to an embossed layer that has a hint of green glitter card behind it. And there you have it, very simple but very effective I think.
Go check out what the rest of the team have made for more inspiration for you.
