Hello, friends! I'm enjoying a long holiday weekend and snuck in some crafting time after cleaning up from our Thanksgiving celebration. What a wonderful day we had with family and food and so many blessings! I am a firm believer in taking time to appreciate and express gratitude for all the blessings that have been bestowed upon us...and that's what we did as a family this week. I love that.
Speaking of gratitude and appreciation, I was lucky enough to win a $15 certificate to the Gerda Steiner stamp shop last month, so I purchased few stamps (both digital and clear) and I had to play along with this little fella for the November's Challenge.
I'm also playing along with The Paper Players Tic Tac Toe Challenge # 273 from Sandy. I used the White/Embossing/Die Cut combination (and actually I also used the Blue/Shine/Embossing combination!). Be sure to check out the Design Team cards over there...they are so unique and creative!
For my card, I embossed the snow using white embossing powder, die cut the frame, and fussy cut the sweet bear after coloring with Copic markers. I added shine to the mug with Glossy Accents and to his nose with black liquid enamel. I used blue distress ink to highlight the sky and a blue card base.
I can't wait to get my other Gerda Steiner stamps and to play with the digital downloads I purchased. They are all so whimsical and CUTE!
I do appreciate your visits...thank you for stopping by!
