Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

Celebrate the Season


Hello, I am back yet again with another card! This time it is for the Inspired By Challenge. As soon as I saw the adorable graphic with the Polar Bear, I knew I wanted to play along. Remember they have two photos and a Sketch that you can choose from. My good friend Carol has this adorable bear from Ellen Hutson and every time I see her I stamp a few more to take home with me. I had this new very cool stencil from Miss Ink stamps on my desk, and I thought since heart backgrounds seem to be a signature of mine why not make a snowy scene with my new stencil. So I did!

I am linking up with the Peace on earth Christmas Challenge which in a new challenge, so you should check it out! It is Anything Goes with a mood board that you can use if you like for inspiration, but don’t have too. I was drawn to the blue pinecones which is why I chose that color for my bear’s scarf and the snowy snowman scene.

You have probably noticed that I like playing along at any of the Happy Little Stampers Challenges so I will be putting this card in the Stencil Challenge.

Card Details: Bear Ware from Ellen Hutson, Greeting and speech bubble are from SU. The snowflakes are a die from Poppy Stamps and I made a stencil out of acetate. The scarf was made with a die-cut from MFT (their old retired JOY set). I used Oxide Inks of course and some light colored pencil! The cool Cloud Heart is from Miss Ink Stamps and brand new to me. I just love it! I am not sure who makes the gift stamp as it is from my friend Carol as well.

I appreciate all your visits, Happy stamping! Nanc’
