'Tis the Season at Frilly and Funkie


Hi everyone and welcome! It's the second week of the current Frilly and Funkie challenge 'Tis The Season' and the turn of the Funkie side of the Design Team to share their projects with you. Our host Nancy says "With Christmas quickly approaching I've chosen the theme of: 'Tis the Season!' I'm keeping it super simple. You may create any type of vintage or shabby chic holiday themed project - whatever winter holiday you celebrate!"

At the end of the challenge the Design Team will choose their top four picks. Our first place winner will be invited to join us in a Guest DT spot here at Frilly and Funkie. Three additional talented participants will receive badges to display on their blogs. Everyone who enters and adheres to the challenge guidelines will be entered into a drawing to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique!

As this is our last challenge before we break for the festive holidays I wanted to finish the year in style and what better way than with Tim Holtz 'Winter Village' dies! Hopefully you'll be able to see the sparkle in the photos (what IS it with glitter and lights!!!)


(click on each photo for a close up)

Tim has put together some fantastic videos to share hints and tips on constructing the three village variations and I highly recommend that you watch them before starting to play as they make a real difference to the outcomes. I'd also strongly suggest covering and stamping each piece before putting them together; this includes adding Frosted, window frames, the door and any paste/glitter that you choose to use.


For this chapel I used sanded Kraft Core card to cover the base layer of kraft card. The walls were stamped with the Nordic background stamp in Tree Branch Archival Ink before being sanded again to age them. All the sanded and kraft surfaces were also inked with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink. And the snow? That's texture paste covered in Rock Candy Distress Glitter (and in real life it sparkles beautifully!!!)


The greenery which adorns the roof was also cut from Kraft Core card using a mix of Tim's holiday dies. The berries are left overs from last year's crackers and the charms come from the huge range that Linda stocks.


Hope you've got a little inspiration from this for your own seasonal projects, especially if you are about to embark on creating your own village structures (or are patiently waiting for the dies to arrive!!!) For even more inspiration from my incredibly talented team mates make sure you head on over to the Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog. Then it's over to you! We've already had many fabulous entries, but with prizes and Top 3 badges up for grabs there's still plenty of reasons to join in the fun.


Thank you for taking the time to stop by and whatever you're up to for the rest of the week take care of yourselves, Jenny xxx

  3. Absolutely brilliant Jenny, what a wonderful version of this!! Love the rustic look with the Kraft card! A real labour of love no doubt. The embellishment inside the clock tower is so clever and of course the other ones look brilliant too. And yes, what is it with light and glitter.... so frustrating, but I can just imagine how beautifully it sparkles irl,

You've created a piece that will be treasured for generations. Also, I am headed to the shop to order the village dies, so you are a retail therapy enabler-lol! Thanks for the tip about the videos. I will definitely watch them before starting out. And thank you for sharing your creative genius! You keep drawing me closer to the Funkie side!!
