Winnie Tags

Hi friends! Welcome to Polkadoodles' DigiChoosDay where you can receive a discount, enter a challenge and purchase some cute cute digital images.
I printed on my laser printer the image called Lantern - Digital Stamp Download - Winnie White Christmas Printables. I love this image and have used it many times this Christmas season.
I used alcohol markers to color in the images, silver metallic pen and glitter markers for details.
The sentiment "Happy Christmas" is from Polkadoodles' Christmas Joy Digiscrap Download Bundle. I particularly love this font and sentiment.
I cut 3 different sizes with tag dies from my stash:
Now I have some beautiful tags for gifts this year. I really fun, inexpensive way to produce multiple tags!

The Card Concept 164 with Hero Arts

I started with My Monthly Hero Kit from October 2019, now sold out.
I used a white background cut with the Tim Holtz Deckle Edge Trimmer. On that piece I applied some Altenew White Embossing Paste through a retired Tim Holtz Stencil similar to his Stampers Anonymous Layering Stencil, Bubble.
The fireplace and couch were stamped with Altenew Obsidian Black Ink and sprinkled with Altenew Crisp Clear Embossing Powder onto Ranger Watercolor Paper. I watercolored with my Kuretake Zigs Clean Color Real Brush Markers.
The My Monthly Hero Kits are great because they not only come with great stamp sets, but also matching dies. This kit spoke to me since it was mid century modern furniture, my era!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a chance to play along with this challenge. You'll never know what amazing things you can create unless you try!

I am also submitting my card to:

Polkadoodles Winnie Lighting the Way

It's Tuesday, friends, and that means Polkadoodle's Digi Choosday Challenge and sale!
The team's challenge was to make a Christmas themed card using ribbon or twine. I used the Lantern - Winnie White Christmas Black/White Digital Image:
I printed Winnie onto white cardstock and colored her with alcohol markers. Lots of glimmer and glaze was added for the sparkle & shine which is needed on a Christmas card.
The background paper is so bright and vibrant...It's from Work & Play 5 - Festive Hollybobs Full Download Collection.  The tree paper is specifically HB3-02.
The "Happy Christmas" sentiment (I love this font!) is from Christmas Joy Digiscrap Download Bundle. My tag is from a retired set by Poppystamps called Pinpoint Main Street Tags. 

Thanks for joining me today. I just love this Winnie and you'll be seeing more of her in future blogs! I will be submitting my card to the following challenges:
1) NBUS

Back to the cards! The largest tree is about 8 1/4" - very large for a card, but great for banners, quilts, home decor, etc. 
The trees were cut from Strathmore Watercolor Paper and Altenew's Embossing Paste was applied through the "Little Boxes" Stencil here and there on the shape.
The background is made using the Scrapbook.com Snowflakes 6 X 8 Stencil with Altenew's Embossing Paste. Sprinkled with glitter while still wet. The watercoloring was done with Ranger Ink Distress Reinkers. A good splattering of Dina Wakely's Media  Gloss Sprays - White.
The sentiments are from the Word Dies: Merry Christmas and the Bold Basic Alphabet Dies.  Here is a different take on the theme:

Thanks for stopping by today! Love to see what you create with this Nested Tree Die set!

Beautiful Bounty

What a gorgeous inspiration photo and the colors were so inspiring! I made 2 cards, the one I am featuring is the Clean and Layered style directly inspired by the black gingham napkin, the white pumpkin and the colors of turquoise and rust.
I would call this card Clean and Simple, but used the pumpkins and colors for inspiration:
I love the gold foil, you can really see the shine here:
Here they are side by side:

Paper Funday Nov. 2021

It's November and time for a new Paper Funday Challenge! The Sponsor I chose to use for my cards is CAS-ual Fridays Stamps:
They have so many fun and snarky sets and I use the Naughty'isms Stamps and Naughty Dies for my cards (I made 4!).

I've used 2 different CAS-ual Fridays Stencils for my cards. This one is called Chunky Chevron:
This stencil is called Modern Petals:
The inking of the stencils was all done with Distress Ink and my Scrapbook.com foam blending tools.
Here are all 4:
Fun inside sentiment, too!

I hope you've enjoyed my Naughty or Nice cards and come join up at The Paper Funday Challenge for November. Look forward to seeing your creations!
