CAS Christmas November Challenge - Warm and Cosy

Hello there.  This is the final challenge of the year at CAS Christmas as we are taking a break next month. So for this month, we are getting Warm and Cosy.


Winter can be miserable and wet here.  I prefer to stay inside where it’s warm and cosy.  But if I have to venture outside, I still like to stay warm and cosy by bundling up from head to toe... almost like this little fella. 😉


Started by stamping the sweet bear off the edge with Copic friendly black ink on Copic friendly cardstock.  Coloured in with Copics, then masked him.  Next, ink blended turquoise dye ink (retired) through a DIY die cut reverse circle stencil for a backdrop.


Die cut the image piece with a stitched rectangle die then popped it onto a white top folding card base with fun foam for some dimension.   White heat embossed the sentiment on black cardstock.  Added falling snow with a white gel pen to finish.


We have Bobby (Bits & Pieces) joining us as our guest this month.  And if you need more inspirations, check out what Bobby and my team have created HERE.  Christmas is coming up pretty quick now.  Hope you will join us and get your cards done.  Thank you for dropping by.

He certainly does look cozy and very festive with his red and white scarf and cap! I love how you've stamped him off the edge and the wonderful shading! Great challenge, my friend!

A pretty design for him with the beautiful sky and snowflakes. His hat and scarf are colored so festive and should keep him warm and snug.

What an adorable little bear - and that hat and oversized scarf will definitely keep him warm and cozy! Love the icy blue partial circle behind him and the scattering of snow.

Your bear is so adorable, Trina! He does look warm and cozy with his knit cap and scarf.
The circle stenciled backdrop is a fantastic idea - your eyes go straight to the bear.
