Anything Goes at Polkadoodles

Good morning folks, it's challenge time over at Polkadoodles and our theme is 'Anything Goes'. Our lucky winner will receive a voucher to spend at Polkadoodles store and you don't even have to use our products to play along!

As always the DT were given a twist to the challenge and this time its was to make anything other than a card so I've made a little wallhanging using lots of Polkadoodles stamps and dies. I've kept the colour palette neutral using plain white card and some white glitter card. I've used lots of kraft card and used Sepia Versafine ink for the stamping.

I distressed some polkadot embossed white card  with gathered twigs distress ink and layered it up on kraft card, then I added a layer of corrugated kraft card and applied some texture paste through a brick stencil. While that was drying I stamped the Christmas tree, garland, holly sprig and sentiment using Sepia Versafine ink, I cut them out and added lots of glitter. I used a mix of stamps from Red Red Robin and O Christmas Tree. I also die cut lots of elements using Polkadoodles Dies: Door/Window, Ribbon Gift Frames/Corners, Elegant Lamplight and Gate, Cherry Blossom Branch/Tree and Bubblicious Frames. I distressed the die cuts with Gathered Twigs distress ink and added glitter, pearls and gems and then assembled my little winter scene. I used white cosmic shimmer glue and glamour dust to create some snow along the base of the tree, fence and door. 

I finished the project off with some seambinding ribbon, pompom trim and a little wooden star with a twine bow.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Alphabet Challenge: S for stars
Christmas at Sweet Stampin: anything goes Christmas
CRAFT: Christmas
Live and Love Crafts: white Christmas
Winter Wonderland: poinsettias or snow is falling

Thanks so much for visiting today, hope to see you again soon

  1. Gorgeous shabby chic Christmas card! The lack of garish red & green tones is a relief... I'm already bored with it, white and kraft is so much better!
