Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the Stitch It Up Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!
This week we are all getting into the Christmas spirit and we’re all ready to party: Party Time!
Think of this as a virtual party, put on your glad rags and pour yourself a glass of something yummy while you craft! This theme is wide open to your interpretation and we can’t wait to see what you create!
This challenge will run for 2 whole weeks so you have until 8am on January 7th to join in!
This is Ann’s last week with us in the Designer Spotlight and we would like to say a huge thank you for your fabulous creations over the past few weeks! It really has been such a pleasure to have you along with us and we would like to wish you a Very Merry Christmas and the Happiest of Happy New Years :-)

Questa settimana sono partita dall'idea di un invito per un party e sono arrivata a un pannello decorativo a tema Party! La mia mente creativa fa davvero strani percorsi!
Sotto trovate i semplici steps per preparare la base partendo da una cornice Idea-ology.
L'ho coperta in alcuni punti con la Collage paper natalizia e poi ho colorato solo alcune parti con Distress Creayons, per togliere il bianco e renderla più vintage ho usato Collage medium Vintage.

This week I started with the idea of an invitation for a party and I arrived at a party themed decorative panel! My creative mind really does strange paths!
Below are the simple steps to prepare the base starting  from an Idea-ology frame.
I covered it in some places with the Christmas collage paper and then I colored only some parts with Distress Crayons, I covered it with white gesso and to change a little bit this color  and make it more vintage I used Collage Vintage medium.

Per decorare ho utilizzato i pack natalizi Ephemera Idea-ology creando un collage sulla cornice.

To decorate  my panel I used the Ephemera Idea-ology Christmas packs creating a collage on the frame.

Può un party natalizio non essere scintillante? No , deve assolutamente avere qualcosa di super scintillante! Ho usato il Distress Glitter Vintage Platinum insieme a Sticky embossing powder e lo stencil Polkadot.
E poteva forse mancare la parola Christmas? No! Eccola ben visibile tagliata in rosso come vuole la tradizione!

Can a Christmas party not be sparkling? No, it must absolutely have something super shiny! I used the Distress Glitter Vintage Platinum along with Sticky embossing powder and the Polkadot stencil to make my Christmas project shine!
And could the word Christmas be missing? No! Here it is clearly visible cut into red as tradition dictates!

Mi mancavano le mie amate Paper Dolls quindi... eccole qui nel loro splendore, protagoniste del mio pannello!

I missed my beloved Paper Dolls so ... here they are in their splendor,stars of my panel!

Wow Barbara, this is fabulous! I love the ephemera collages onto the frame the layering is perfect! The red Christmas looks wonderful at the base of the composition and maybe one of my favorite parts is the glittery polka dots! Love it! xx Merry Christmas and wishes for a wonderful 2019!
