Lots of Sparkle! | Polkadoodles DT Wk. 48 Challenge Inspiration

 

This week over on the Polkadoodles Challenge Blog the optional theme for this weeks challenge is LOTS OF SPARKLE!

I created a few projects for this one! The first on is a couple of gift card holders. I used embellishments and papers from the Winnie in Winterland bundle. The sentiment on the gift card holder on the right is from the Winnie White Christmas Bundle. After assembling the gift card holders I coated the outside of the envelopes with some super sparkly glitter paint.

My second project is corrugated steel tree shaped ornament I added some holographic green glitter to and added a precolored embellishment from the Winnie in Winterland Bundle.

I hope you enjoyed these two glittery projects as much as I enjoyed making them! Make sure you head over to join in the Polkadoodles Blog Challenge.

The most wonderful time…

This week I thought we could revisit some holiday themed Vera Lane Studio digistamp sets.

Tree Gal on 4×6 watercolor paper is definitely ready for Christmas! She has quickly became one of my holiday favorites! Her expression and that amazing head full of tree hair…or is it a hat? And she’s a FAIRY!!! I love fairies! I painted her with Brea Reese Glitter Inks. She has a friend in the same set named Countdown that will probably show up here sometime in December.

This warm toned beauty above is part of the Oaxacan Angels digistamp set. I normally work with much cooler colors but truly enjoyed all the warm tones in this beauty. She will warm the heart of whoever receives her. She is painted with Brea Reese Glitter Inks and accented with a white gel pen. I added some fun art fibers for the tassel.

December, this classy candy cane inspired cutie is decked out in her holiday best and ready to celebrate. She is a member of the Vera Lane Studio Birthday Club Collection. The trees are from the Tree Lot set. There are 11 trees in that set! 11! So many ways to mix and match them up with other Vera Lane Studio digis! I kept this 4×6 card pretty simple and felt the white space was perfect for a snow scene. Just a little silver glitter shadow under the trees and December to give the illusion of snow 🙂 This card was painted with Brea Reese inks as well.

I hope you enjoyed traveling back in time with Vera Lane Studio digis today. I know I did. I love VLS and can’t wait to share more goodies next week!

Until next time…

North Pole Cottages Advent Calendar | Polkadoodles DT Inspiration

inkypinkyboo112417PD

I’m super excited to finally announce  that I’m part of the Polkadoodles Design Team! I’m so excited to be part of such a talented group!

My first inspiration project is the North Pole Cottages Advent Calendar…a friend gave me the idea to make the traditional advent calendar an apartment complex of sorts for all the creatures and characters in the North Pole to live in.

What I used:

The paper mache advent calendar I purchased at a local craft store.

It features just a small portion of the absolutely adorable Polkadoodles papers, embellies, characters & more from the Winnie White Christmas big kahuna download kit and Winnie Winterland big kahuna digital craft download bundle.

I added lots of sparkle using an Art-c glitter pen to embellish each piece.

I hope I have inspired you to create and enter the current Polkadoodles Blog Challenge. Just follow the link below 🙂
