Joyous Winterdays - Snowball fight

Good morning  - I hope that I find you all well? This morning, I'm sharing a Christmas card.
 I absolutely adore the Maja Designs ~ Joyous Winterdays. The soft colours are so me.
These are fantastic to work with and really do get the creative juices flowing.

The vintage boy playing in the snow is so cute and ideal for a shabby look on your card.
I've added so small pearl gems around him and white acrylic paint.
Poinsettia is made using Lady E dies ~ coloured the centres with oil pastels, finished off with white twinkle stamens and a polystyrene ball, which I've added some glitter to.

Some fir cones and beaded wire were added to give that Christmas finish.
 I have to say Christmas cards are my favorite  makes.
 Love this time of year ~ though wish there was more light in the days.
Don't forget the challenge " A Gift " we'd love to see your creations.
Hugs & Loves

Polkadoodles Christmas Card

Good morning my lovelies ~ how is everyone on this cold winter morning?
Sharing a Christmas card using Polkadoodles Stamp of the Month - December.

Believe it or not, I actually struggling with this stamp.
 I stamped and coloured her 3 times before I got it right. I have used distressed inks to colour her.
I have to say - the finish is amazing. I'll be certainly purchasing more of these.
If you've never tried them yourself - I'd give it a go. 
Buy some colours that you would actually use ~ I'd highly recommend.

Here's a sneak peek at my colouring with distressed inks.

The Fantasy dies are a must have for me - the detail in them is fantastic.
The large rose is from a Prima kit Lavender Frost
flowers are currently sold out but I'm sure they'll be back in stock soon.
Ribbon and chipboard are from my own stash.
That's it from me - happy crafting.

Star Shaped Christmas Card

Hello and Good morning to you all. 
Tammy here today sharing a star shaped card - a very Christmasy one too.
Worked with one of my fave colour combos.

Coloured the Whimsy stamp with my poly pencils and pro-markers to give some depth.
Added so texture for snow.

Poinsettia made by myself - though these are hand cut - no die.
You will find Lady E dies in the store to help you make similar.
Shape of card was cut on my Cameo, as too was the 25th Dec and bow.
The star on the card is a Christmas decoration from my stash.
Have a super week everyone and don't forget to enter the new challenge.
