I hope you had a good start to the new year and because today is already the 5th the first Stempelgarten Challenge in 2015 just starts right away. The theme for January is «Winter Pleasures».
For my winter card I chose the adorable «Cool Day» stamp set by My Favorite Things. I love all the cute Birdie Brown designs illustrated by Torico.
To create something different, I decided to make this sweet polar bear peek through a window in the front of the card. Therefore I cut a circle with one of the «Stitched Circles» dies from Simon Says Stamp. I love how it creates this stitched line around the die-cut circle. The sentiment is from the «Season's Greetings» stamp set by Mama Elephant and I heat embossed it in Ranger's «Liquid Platinum».
Then I stamped the gloves from the «Cool Day» stamp set, colored them with Copics and added the white heat embossed hearts. I also stamped this curly stitched line from the MFT «Hearts and Stitches» stamp set in SSS «Audrey Blue» ink. The snowflake was cut from vellum using a C.C. Designs die. I added a little rhinestone to the middle.
For the inside of my card I clear heat embossed a couple of snowflakes and sponged the background with SSS «Seaglass» and «Audrey Blue» ink. I colored the bear and the sign with Copics and fussy cut both images and adhered them with 3D foam pads to a little snow hill which I cut with a Mama Elephant «Landscape Trio» die.
To give my hill the look of sparkly snow, I added lots of «Clear Rock Candy Distress Glitter» by Tim Holtz/Ranger.
