🍭Allsorts - Christmas gifts 🎁🛍️

At Allsorts this week the theme is Christmas gifts 🎁. These are some gift bags 🛍️I made containing ingredients for Snowman soup 🥣. The lighting isn't very good (it's November so it's dark almost 24/7 up here in the north) but the text says:

When the weather outside is frightful
snowman soup can be delightful.
May it warm your spirit and your soul
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

When you feel a chill or a "brrrrrrrrr"
use a candy cane stick to stir
Add hot water and sip it slow
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

And the bags contain a candy cane stick, a bag of instant chocolate powder and some mini marshmallows.

🍭Allsorts - Thank you or New Year

This week at Allsorts the theme is Thank You or New Year. I made a Thank You-card by water-painting a background, cutting out a circle and adding a bow over the cut out. The cut out circle is glued to the inside of the card but unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of the opened card before I gave it away, oops :)

I focused on the flowers on a white background embossed with a snowflake die and some banner letters spelling Merry Christmas in Swedish.

🍭Allsorts - White on white 🌨️

This week Brenda set the theme at Allsorts to White on White 🌨️. I'm guessing this will open up for some snowy entries ⛸️. Skin colour will be ok though.
Some people say that sparkly cards are hard to photograph but I think white on white is a true challenge, as you can see on my poor attempt below...

🍭Allsorts - Make your own flowers 💐🌻🌺

It is my turn to host the challenge at Allsorts and being inspired by last week's challenge to make backgrounds I want you to create your own flowers this week 💐🌻🌺. And I mean create, not just stamp a flower 😙
I made my flowers from white foamiran that I coloured lilac to match the backing paper (that was made using a mask and some distress inks). The sentiment is covered in crackle paint.

🍭Allsorts - Make your own background

This week at Allsorts Lynn wants us to make our own backgrounds, this means no design paper 🚫. I quite enjoy doing my own backgrounds so this is just up my alley. I used distress ink in pink and lavender and lots of sparkling mist to make the background. Stamped it with the text and the elephant and added a hand drawn frame and some flowers.

🍭Allsorts - Add a touch of gold or silver 🥇🥈

This week at Allsorts Ellie wants you to add a touch of gold 🥇or silver 🥈to your projects. I think I went all in and added more than a touch of gold 🤪 but I'm quite pleased with the sparkly result.

All it took was some ribbon, a die from E-bay and golden gift wrapping paper.
We have a stamp from Rare Earth for a lucky winner this week.
