Welcome back to another challenge! Wow, December already, where did that come from??

As always, the theme this month is  
Anything Creative Mixed Media Goes

The challenge closes 31st December so there's loads of time to play along.
Our sponsor for 2018 is Polkadoodles and you can check out all the wonderful selection of Polkadoodles goodies in the shop below.

PRIZE: $10 gift voucher

make sure you check out their store below, they have lots of fab products including stamps, dies, papers, digis and much more...



Now let's check out the inspiration from our talented design team...

Corry  I made a christmas card for your inspiration....

I used the beautiful stamp winterflurries from Polkadoodles.  I stamped the swirl with embossing ink and powder.   Then I stamped and masked the christmasballs.After that, I stamped the trees and added some accents here and there...


The stamp I used is winterflurries...

Jan ~ For my project today I have altered this cheapy frame, It started life out being white, I used black Gesso on it (at this stage my hubby asked why I did'nt just buy a black frame!!!) I used  a little Bronze Guilding wax over. On some black card stock I stamped using Distress inks. I finished off making some stars I used texture paste through a stencil , the used black gesso and again finishing off with guilding wax....

Jane - I have made a card this time using paste, paint, watercolours and two adorable gnomes!!

Polkadoodles Essential Shopping


Terry For this month's challenge I have worked with bright colors, I played with different colors for the background and stamped with Distress Inks. I wanted to create a flowerarrangement with different clearstampsets. One of them is the Stamp Soup Regal Peacock, this set is really wonderfull to create your own flowers. On top of the flowers I have played with Accents to give the flowers a bit of 3D effect. Last but not least I placed the Sending Special Wished sentiment. 


The products that I worked with are:

Lou Sims: I have used a selection of Polkadoodles 'Believe in Angels' stamps & stencils -which is a huge collection - recently launched on Hochanda to create a stampbord photo frame. Stamps sets used: Flower Power 1 & Forever Special Angel alongside the 'Unicorn & Rainbows' stencils . A step by step tutorial can be found on my blog along with matching photos.
