The Four Seasons Challenge - Winter

Hello Friends and Happy December!  It's hard to believe we are approaching 2023, I hope you have a good start on your holiday baking, crafting and decorating.  Me?  I'm getting there, the Tree is up and the lights have been hung.

Today begins the 1st Winter themed challenge at The Four Seasons Challenge Blog.  The inspiration photo this round is so pretty and I went CAS this time, which is something I find very difficult to pull off.


I was inspired by the snow, so fluffy and white and I was excited to use my new set from the Simon Says Stamp Stamptember festivities, it's the Gina K. Designs Sparkling Season Stamp Set.

I've stamped and heat embossed the baubles and sentiment using fine detail gold embossing powder.  My focal panel measures 3.75" x 5" and you can see how large the image is.  

I've backed the panel with gold mirror card and I just couldn't resist not adding bells and whistles so yes, you guessed it, there have been gold gems from Kat Scrappiness added. 

Please join us at The Four Seasons Challenge Blog.  We hope to inspire you with our makes and look forward to seeing your Winter themed projects.  Until next time, Happy Crafting!
