Happy New Year.. Hope your year is wonderful, creative and blessed..
 
Welcome to another year at Creative with Stamps and a new month long challenge..
Our theme is Mittens..
 
Note: CWS challenges do not have many "guidelines", but please read and follow the few we do have to be eligible to win.
 
This Double Trouble challenge will run from January 7-20th
 
We are paring up with Double Trouble for this challenge
Challenge #19 - Let the Troubles Begin
THING 1 Trouble Maker wants you to use an e
mbossed or patterned background and use a stamped or digital image to bring in something "Warm and Cozy" for these long cold January Winter days.
THING 2 Double Dare reminds you when you're feeling sad to simply remember "Your favorite things...whiskers on kittens...warm woolen mittens..." and then you won't feel so bad.
If you have included something to keep you warm in the winter you can link up your project HERE to Creative with Stamps and you will receive an additional chance at the Double Trouble Random Draw.
 
Well would you believe it.. I do not have any mitten stamps.. I know it's a shame.. So I just drew and cut out a mitten template and traced it on some Bristol paper and turned it over and traced it again to get the other hand.. I then used Zig markers and painted the mittens. I used Simon Says stamps and stamped a band and snowflake looking spots and heat embossed them. I stamped the SS sentiment on a piece of SU paper and used a Stampin up die to cut the frame. I added the scrap strip of SU paper onto another piece of dp by We R memory keepers.. I added the sequins and mittens and using a copic I colored a piece of twine and tied two bows and added them to the mittens.. WaLa.. mitten card..
So if you don't have a mitten stamp.. draw one.
