In The Bleak Mid Winter

Hello Everyone,

I have been playing with the Dutch Doobadoo Houses and made a winter scene using papers by Pion Design Greetings From The North Pole Collection, all links at the bottom as usual.

I made the snow using Dutch Doobadoo Structure Paste and lots of Viva Decor Ice Crystals and this is so glistening in real life.

The Poinsettias were made using Foamiran, wow I am addicted to making flowers with this foam, they are just so beautiful and so realistic.

I used the 10mm shabby white rusty bells for the door handles.

I added two Christmas Trees, just about still in stock at Noor Design UK.

Here's a side view.

You can see the glisten from this picture hopefully :)

A close up of the Poinsettia using Foamiran in White.  I also added Glistening Berries as stamens and also more Viva Decor for the icy look.

I added shabby white sprigs to finish the arrangement.

Hope you like it :)

Crafteezee Collection....In the forrest Winter Wonderland

Hi everyone....

Christmas is approaching fast now so if you have to make some lovely Christmas creations you really should start now.
I have made a sweet wintery creation with the bauble from the Crafteezee Collection.
I think you know what the Crafteezee Collection is but for those who don't know.....
It's a limited collection, assembled by Tracy and every month there's a new one.....In the Forrest Winter Wonderland is the November collection and the December one is called....DECADENCE.
That sounds promising isn't it?

Let's see now what my Christmas bauble turned out to be....

Isn't it sweet??? I have so many spools in my stash so I decided to use one for my creation. I left the grey linen on the spool and turned the beautiful lace from the kit around it.
On the top of the spool I did foamball clay snow and because that's a little bit sticky, I could confirm my bauble . The bauble has some foamball clay on it too and sweet pearl can use any kind of trim you looks lovely on the bauble.
At the top I made a lovely bow and with a piece of string I confirmed the 2 lovely golden rhinestone snowflakes charms.

I added a lot of items from the collection like the artifical fir springs, the shabby white cinnamon sticks, the shabby white minnature larch cones, a twigged heart, the lovely white flowers....It looks so lovely all those pretty embellishments...

I added some things from my own stash....there's always something that fits perfectly with the rest.
My craftroom looks a bit like a store with all those lovely things...only a bit

And this is how it's on top of the dresser....along with the over-de-top shiny glass pears.....
This year will be a very shiny Christmas in our house....I love it....

I hope you liked my creation.....see you back next week.
Have a lovely Plony

Winter Wonder

Today I'm happy to be bringing you two cards.  I'm getting ahead (or maybe just on time) so I figured I better double up my sharing for you all to see.  😊  For my first card I used the papers from Whimsy Stamps "Winter Wishes" pad and paired them up with the super cute stamp also from Whimsy "Winter Wonder".  Taking her teddy bear for a walk - ahhhhh the memories of being a kid.  LOL!!

I made myself a little forest and added some snowtex on each tree, built up dimension and even sneaked a little deer charm in there too.   What's a forest without an animal of some kind?

My usual bouquet full of pretties, which I also added the Snowtex too.  Love those wooden white snowflakes!!

I thought I'd share a masculine Christmas card because I'm sure we all have at least one we should be making this season.  I used the papers from Studio Light called "Frozen Forest".

The die is Marianne Designs called "Tiny's Reindeer Die" and it's not in the shop but Tracy can bring it in for you.   I showed this angle on the card so you could see the man glitter on the large Scrapiniec holly wreath.  LOL!  Seems when I call it "man glitter" it's accepted.  😀  Oh and it is the Tim Holtz distress glitter so that should work too right?  LOL!

This angle shows the reindeer is actually in the center of the card and not on the outside.  I even cut the die twice and added some dimension tape behind the die.  I also added a couple of Scrapiniec snowflakes (which aren't in stock but many others are) and birch bark stars.

The trees are Joy dies "Happy Holidays" to which I added Snowtex for that even more wintery feeling.  

There you have it!!  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great weekend!
