Merry Monday #288 - No stamping!

Deanne has a great theme for Challenge #288 over at Merry Monday - no stamping!

When is the last time you created a card with absolutely no stamping?! I tend to stamp on most cards I make, especially the sentiments. Given all the dies I have, though, I can easily do bunches of cards without stamping - LOL!!

Supplies: Paper - Michael's Recollections holiday printed A2 card
American Crafts snowflake paper from Target's Hot Spot 
Neenah Classic Crest Solar White: Paper Studio glitter & red
Dies - Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders
My Favorite Things Die-Namics Blueprints 20 (retired)
Other - foam tape, Copic Markers

Just love Hero Arts Paper Layering dies - so fun! I bought the polar bear die when it was released last year and immediately cut one. I colored parts with Copics but actually paper-pieced all the glittery hearts in the scarf. They are very teeny and I had to recut some as the first ones disappeared on me! Also carefully removed the nose holes, colored them in black and inlaid back in. Poor bear was sitting around on my craft table waiting for a home - glad I found him one on this card!!

I also love the Hero Arts Christmas Trimmings Stamp & Cut! Not only does it have the Merry Christmas in both a stamp and a die, it has a bow, some holly and berries - perfect! I die cut the sentiment in red and glued the Merry directly to the bear and the Christmas to the snowbank. A bit of foam tape behind the bear added some dimension. Done!

Thanks to Deanne for a fun challenge - check it all out HERE, including fabulous cards by the Design Team. So glad you stopped by and I hope you have a crafty week!!
