Lighting the way for Christmas

Happy Friday crafty peeps I ope you are all well the weather has definitely started to turn colder now (Bbbbrrrrr) so with with that being said it’s time to start making those Christmas cards!!!!!! :0O  We all know that Christmas creeps p on us all to quickly and we are forever playing catch up to make sure we have all our cards made and ready (I know I do every year) I even remember the year before last still making them on Christmas eve!!!!!!
So we have a new challenge for you over at #Polkadoodles f as alway for you guys it’s anything goes but for us DT gals the theme is Christmas (well you never saw that coming did ya!!!)
We have had a massive response to the new Winnie Christmas release and it’s not surprising she is just adorable I do love Winnie. Now there is not just the download OH no!!!!! Nikky has gone all out with this collection there are paper packs with die cut Winnies and also for those that still love to have a CDrom rather than download she has brought this collection into the 21st century and brought it out on a USB (yes a USB) which comes in it’s own container for safe keeping or you upcycle it and get crafty with it.
Also for those that love physical stamps there is a gorgeous collection of Winnies on clear stamps and that is what I have used for my card today.
Yes you read correctly the queen of digi has been stamping lol I treated myself to the Tonic/ Tim Holtz stamping platform as I am Rubbish at stamping I can never get a good clean print which was I turned to digis but there are some projects that need a stamp and hey ho I wanted to give it a go.
So this was my first play with the stamp platform and the stamps and I’m well impressed with both (Woohoooo)

I  did my usual 8x8” card but I wanted to keep it pretty clean and simple and decided to do a trellis design down the edge (again something new for me) it’s so easy and such a great effect.

The papers I used were what come with the stamp set and is called holly jolly they’re 6x6” and I love them some of them are available in other collections but it’s still worth it.
I coloured Winnie Lighting the way with a mix of polychrome, Pablo and prisma pencils  and the sentiments are also cut out from one of the papers.

I just distressed the edges of everything and added some distress ink and hey presto it’s Christmas.
Hope you like it and I will see you very soon with another PD make

Happy Crafting
