A little bit of holiday flair!

Hello all and Happy Friday! With all the festive fanfare with Power Poppy's  Happiest Holiday release last week, I decided to stay on a holiday kick in my craft room! So, let's get to my creation!

With all the focus on polymer this past week, I decided to mix things up and print off one of Power Poppy's newest digital stamp sets -- Glittering Glass Santa! After printing it off, I did pick up my Copic Markers and used these markers: B0000, B000, B00, B01, R24, R27, R29, G40, G43, G46, YG13, YG06, and G20. I did add a little bit of sparkle thanks to a bit of glitter glue!

Here's a close up! As you can see, I did add a little bit of white paint pen to make the little glass ornaments look as if they are shiny.....

And, here's a peek at the inside! I actually used the sentiment and stitched heart from the Bough Wow Wow stamp set!

While I wanted to add another card to my Christmas card pile, I also wanted to take part in one of the Splitcoaststampers' Hope You Can Cling To  Challenges! I decided to give HYCCT1507 a try. The challenge? T.R.A.S.H. Cancer! You have to use each letter of the word TRASH as an element. To break it down for you-- I have a Tree branch for T. Rhinestone for R. Antique ornament for A. Sparkle for S. And, Holiday creation for H! There you have it! If you want to read up on the challenge you can click HERE. You can click HERE for the entire SCS Hope You Can Cling to Challenge Forum or HERE for the HYCCT1507 Gallery!

If you are on the hunt for additional challenges, don't forget about Power Poppy's  Bits & Pieces Power and Spark Challenge. You only have 8 days to get in on the action for your chance to win some Power Poppy stamps! Read all about it HERE!

And that, my friends, is it! Now it's time to take a trip through Bloom Brigade land to check out what some of the Bloomies whipped up for your viewing pleasure this week!

Oh, Julie, I just love this Santa ornament, and what fabulous colors you've used. I just love turquoise and red together. I love your layout with the pretty border die and the ribbon, and the double-stitched oval is wonderful. And how cool that you were able to make it for the TRASH HYCCT challenge. And it even works for the Bits & Pieces with the sweet sentiment inside (I love it and will definitely pin that for future use). Hugs, sweet friend!
