DesignTeamHeadshots-LorenaCanto Hello, Waffle Flower friends! Lorena here with a little idea to stretch some of the stamps from our latest release. I should probably be posting Halloween ideas, but I’ve decided to skip that and embrace an early Christmas spirit. Actually, if I were in charge, it would be Christmas all year round. Who’s with me? *wink*   Ok, so let’s talk today’s card. A couple of days ago I had a lightbulb moment and decided that the little guy from Tribal Bear stamp set would make an awesome polar bear. And it did! I stamped the bear, die cut it with the coordinating die set and added some festive green and red to his necklace. bearBut then (and believe me, this doesn’t happen often) I had a second lightbulb moment. Would the cutie Santa hat from Stocking stamp set fit on the bear’s head? Well… it did! I also used the Stocking die to cut the hat and colored it with Copic markers. Isn’t it wonderful when a crafty idea turns out awesome? bear 2The sentiment also comes from Stocking stamp set. As for the background, I masked a snow drift, sponged light blue ink and then added the falling snow using a stencil and white texture paste. Now that I think of it, I barely see people using it anymore… is it “totes 2014” and I’m completely out of the loop? Or can it be considered a classic now? bear 3Anyhow, I had lots of fun making this card and putting the versatile new Waffle Flower stamps to work. Thanks so much for visiting! Thank you for sharing with us today, Lorean! Find time to create and make something today!
