Gabrielle - Merry Christmas, crafters! I hope you like my latest project. For the main image I used the Nature Lover – January digi stamp which I coloured using Copics and Promarker pens and die cut the image using a Spellbinders Scalloped Rectangle die.  I created the background by covering a circular board with a co-ordinating coloured paper from the Octavia Moonfly - Paper Heaven Paperholic collection and edging the board with ‘Salvaged Patina’ embossing glaze.  I then stamped the flowers and leaves stamps from the ‘Queen of Hearts Collage’ and ‘Flower Collage’ stamp sets on to Octavia Moonfly - Paper Heaven Paperholic papers and plain card stock from my stash, fussy cutting to create a floral frame around my central image. I took the butterfly stamp from the ‘Flower Collage’ stamp set and heat embossed directly on to the board using ‘Worn Lipstick’ Distress Powder and on to a darker teal card stock. I used the toadstools from ‘Winnie Wonderland Embellies 1&2’ to add extra detail and interest, shading the spots with a Gelly Roll Sparkle Pen ‘Clear Star’ pen. To tie in the scalloped edges from the main image, I punched small circles out of white card stock and spritzed using ‘Dylusions’ ink sprays in shades of Fushia and Hot Pink.

SO, LET'S FIND OUT WHAT THE DESIGN TEAM HAVE MADE THIS MONTH!...

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.
