Fuzzy Bear and Frosty the Snowman

Hello!  I have been playing with the technique that you emboss cardstock with an embossing folder inked with Versamark and then heat emboss it with EP.  I tried this with the Snowflakes EF from Darice with Silver EP.   I used this as a background behind a fussy cut Snowman holding a Bear that I stamped and colored with Copics and markers on white CS.  The image is popped up with foam tape and has great dimension in real life.  I finished with a wintery sentiment from Creative Clear stamps in red ink and Sakura Glitter Pen. Also used some stickles, liquid pearl, glaze pens, red glitter glue.

Challenges:
Merry Monday Christmas Challenge:  # 183 Use candy cane with your card.  The bear is holding a candy cane.
Retro Rubber: Challenge 29 Holiday Spirit,  The Snowman and Bear stamp called Fuzzy Bear is a PSX design from 1999.  I have used it for many years.
Mod Squad Challenge: Challenge is All that Glitters.  The background glitters with the Silver and there is more sparkle on the red glitter glue on the holly berries, the glitter of the clear star pen on the top hat, knit hat, mittens and sentiment.
Cupcake Inspirations: Challenge 339 Let it Snow. Inspired by the snowflakes.
Tuesday Throwdown: #273 Snowflakes
Fab 'n' Funky Challenge : #285 Snowflakes
Winter Wonderland: Theme is Snow-people




Have a great day! I love reading your comments. Theresa
