This week is the start of a new challenge at Polkadoodles Challenge Blog and it is time to get on your bling!
I have used Hollybobs Mistletoe for my card and have created a scene using a die from Frantic Stamper (Evergreen Trio) using  Diamond Dust to create a sparkly snow effect. Glossy Accents is great for sticking it down. The Snowflake Paper, Happy Christmas and Bow were from the Work and Play 5 Collection. All paper pieces were edged with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.
Hollybobs Mistletoe is available as a digi here or you can buy it as part of the Work and Play 5 Collection-  Festive Hollybobs. I love the disc or download of this collection for all the great images (ready to colour or pre coloured), sentiments, accents and papers. Such great value as well. If you are looking for other ideas using this collection I have several already on my blog.
If you don't like colouring there is a coloured version available but here are the colours I used in Copic Markers:
Skin: E50, E11, R02
Hair: 100, N5
Hat: B0000, B91, B93, B95, B97
Scarf: R14, R17, R20, E09
Pom Pom: W2, W4, Y23, E53
Coat: G46, G28, YG45, YG11
Boots: YR18, E13, E18, YR14, W4

What are you going to make to enter in the challenge? ? I look forward to seeing your creations,

Use a Die Cut Challenge- Polkadoodles

  • I am happily making some special Christmas Cards using the Work and Play 5- Festive Hollybobs collection. It has been school holidays here and so I had a bit more time up my sleeve to get out my Copics and colour. The great thing about the collections at Polkadoodles is that if you don't have much time you can just print off the image in colour.
The digi image today is Hollybobs Skater. All of the papers, the sentiment and the bow are also from the collection. This was my first time of using the bows but you just cut out the pieces, I inked the edges and then assemble with a few dots of glue.

I used the Tim Holtz Sizzlits Snowflake set of dies on this card and added Bo Bunny gems and some Waterfall Stickles.

Copic Colours Used:
Skin: E50, E11, R02
Hair: E35, E37, E79
Scarf: G46, YG11, YG45, B91, B95, B97
Dress: R20, R17, R14, E09
Ear Muffs: W2, Y23, E53, W4

I hope you get time over the next week to hav e some fun with your dies and join the Polkadoodles Challenge. I look forward to seeing everyone else's wonderful creations.
Happy crafting, Jackie x
