GABRIELLEHello there, crafters!  Here is my latest make using the delightful ‘Winnie in Wonderland’ collection.   For this mixed media art board I used the ‘Time is Running Out’ digi stamp and the white rabbit from the ‘Let’s Hurry’ digi stamp, colouring with my Copics and Promarkers.  I created the background by painting the art board with black gesso and edging it with embossing enamel.  I used one of the background papers from the ‘Winnie Wonderland Paper Heaven 8’ collection which I tore to create a textured edge and coloured using distress ink.  I really enjoyed playing with the ‘Winnie Wonderland Embellies 1&2’ to create the scene and I particularly liked having the white rabbit pop out of a tea cup!  I used Crackle Accents on the large clock face to add shine and texture and included some embellishments from my stash to tie it all together and add extra interest and dimension, including sprocket dies which I covered with embossing enamel for a colourful, rusty look. I look forward to seeing your beautiful makes, Happy Crafting!

Natalia Kuzak...Today for my inspiration I've created a little bit of vintage Christmas frame. On the front of my project, I've placed the cute Rudolf from Winnie White Christmas collection. I colored him with alcohol markers, fussy cut him out, and used foam tape to stick him to the wreath. As a background, I printed a frame from Twigge & Toots Frame It Bundle and made her look more vintage using the Distress Ink. I completed my project by adding also tag and sentiment from Winnie Winterland - Tags/Frames, and a wreath from Baked With Love Gingerbread buNdle. Happy crafting to everyone!

Jane – Hello everyone! I have an mdf Christmas bauble to share today featuring one of the fabulous new ELVIS WESLEY CHRISTMOOSE digis. This is ELVIS CHOOSING THE TREE and I used a crumpled piece of painted rice paper to make the background and covered it with Polkadoodles stamps and stencils.

Irre - Hello everyone! Today I'm sharing a Christmas card with Winnie Heavenly Shining Star. I used a stencil and stamps to create the background. I also enhanced the stamps with stickles. I decorated with wool and added gesso to the page. 

Gorgeous projects as always from the team!
