Warm Wishes to You

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

I started by stamping the bear from the Woodware Self Portrait Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Faded Jeans Distress Oxide. I pulled some of the colour out using a Water Brush. I popped it inside the Creative Expressions Sparkle Flakes Embossing Folder, positioning the image around the snowflakes as shown. I coloured the nose using Vintage Photo Distress Oxide using a Water Brush and embossed with CS Matt Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured the scarf using Fired Brick Distress Oxide.

I edged with Faded Jeans Distress Oxide using a Smoothie. I edged a piece of paper from Lisa Horton's Christmas Wishes Paper Pad with Faded Jeans Oxide and popped both pieces onto a Coconut White Card blank.

I popped CS Glue around the edges of the image panel and then added CS Iced Crystal.

I stamped the little paws with Faded Jeans Oxide and pulled the colour out again.

I cut a tag and ring out of Coconut White Card using Sue Wilson's Pierced Tags Die Set. I edged with Faded Jeans Oxide and stamped the sentiment from the Self Portrait Stamp Set using the same ink. I pressed the ring into Fired Brick Distress Oxide, added CS Matt Clear Embossing Powder and heat set. I added it to my tag using CS Glue in a Woodware Fine Tip Applicator.

I swiped some Faded Jeans Oxide onto my Craft Sheet. I misted with water and dragged a piece of Blue White American Seam Binding through it. I cleaned my Craft Sheet, added Fired Brick Oxide, misted with water. I dragged my ribbon through it. I dried it using my Heat Tool and added it to my tag.

Some of you may remember that when I demoed this card on Hochanda, I messed it up a bit by stamping the polar bear in black. I promised to give that card away - I haven't forgotten. It may appear on Freebie Friday very soon. 😊

Thanks for stopping by.
