CCS Challenge: Creative Texture


Welcome to the first Creative Clear Stamps Challenge.  We are thrilled to be starting our own challenges each and every Monday.  We would love for you to play along and on the CCS Blog you can link up your project, we would just love to see it!   Lisa is our challenge coordinator and this week the challenge she has for us is all about Creating Texture!  One of my favorite ways to create texture is none other than using my Cuttlebug and Embossing Folders! I am all about my Cuttlebug and use it to some degree for nearly every card whether using embossing folders or Nesties.

I used the stamp set Let It Snow and added texture to this card in two ways...obviously the Snowflake Embossing Folder, but  I also added some Polar White Flower Soft for snow at the feet...wait a minute, snowmen don't have feet...ummmmm, around the bottom of the snowman..that doesn't sound right either....You know what I mean! hee~hee! I think this snowman is just the cutest little thing...he is just enjoying the snow.  Each stamp in this set is just adorable and perfect for creating Christmas/winter cards.  

If you are looking for more inspiration on Creative Texture, be sure to stop by the CCS Blog as well as Linda's.
Have a great day!
Blessing,
