Winter's Sparkle

You know when you just can't decide what elements to use because you love them all?
Well this past week at PPC&F we teamed up with one of our sponsors, East Wind, with this
gorgeous image, White Witch.
I didn't make her into a card but then it hit me...

You make my sun shine

It's been a beautiful December thus far.
The sun is shining and our lives are full of Christmas cheer, friends and family.
This month at LDRS Creative, I'm using "Friendship is the Sweetest"
Because it is the sweetest but also because the Christmas season is about others.
I've always gotten such a joy doing for others.
It really brings such a warmth to my soul.

The light in the sky

The Aurora Borealis is one of the most stunning sights.
Think you can't recreate that beauty?
Think again...
This month's challenge at Make it Crafty is just that.

I used this image and created a template in a shape to "block" out the lighter shades.
Using my air system, I sprayed B24 lightly into the the areas.
Moving the template by 1/4 inch, I sprayed with BG13.
Repeating this process with B02, BG11.
Once I had a good portion covered and a nice shaped beginning; I used a variety of B's and BG's by hand to feather flick some smaller, more random forms. Using my B0000 and BG0000; I blended the edges into the surrounding areas.
I continued this process until I achieved the look I wanted.
It was a lot of fun and something completely new that I would have never thought to try.
I hope you will give it a go as well.

Gift Bag Delight

Christmas Words
This one's in the bag...literally
Using the small "Jingle All the Way"
which is not small at all. :D

I colored the words using my copics: R46, B24, G09 and Gold Leafing pen.
Then I covered the copic portion with clear Stella Wink pen.
I knew I wanted to glitter emboss the snowflakes but then I found a few
snowflake embellishments that fit so I added those as well.
I then thought to add a little 3D action to other parts.
Using Crackle Glossy Accents I puffed up the Sled and Bells,
a Holly button fit perfectly on the bells and
 a little 3D penquin sticker placed on the sled to ride along.
Finally, what's a jingle with no jingle?
I added some little bells tied along with embroidery thread.

I hope to see what you come up with using your Christmas Words.
Remember, you don't have to use SRTC products but you can
Win Some!!
