Santa Bear from QKR Stampede

     Yes, it's another Friday and another challenge has started at QKR Stampede.  Our theme this week is "Christmas" so that should be pretty easy.   Out of all the fabulous seasonal stamps/digis available at QKR, I decided on this adorable "Santa Bear" (Digi 9501) and I added the sentiment "Joy" (digi 15703.)

     He's colored with ProMarkers, then die cut with one of my framing dies from Spellbinders.  The black mat is also die cut with another die from that same set (scrap CS from my stash.)  I added white ribbon (a scrap) and a die cut bow.  As a way of finishing off everything, I added a 'pinch' of loose glitter to the bow, along with 2 gold beads, leftovers which were in my stash.

  8. Oh, Connie! Precious! Your coloring is FANTASTIC! The pretty die cuts frame Santa Teddy beautifully! I especially like the cheerful green background against that amazing bold black! I enjoy using scraps as well, and here, you cannot even tell that scraps were used! The "pinch" of loose glitter is fantastic! I actually thought that it was glittered ribbon! Thanks for the tip!
