Foxy Holidays

Have you ever had a stamp set that you were absolutely jonesing to get? Last year to late to when I saw Newton Nook's "Sweater Weather". I had to have it but waited till this year and took advantage of all the sales over Thanksgiving.

I mainly got it for the cute little kitty that reminds me of my Pinkie. But the fox has captured my heart. So when I saw the challenge at Inky Paws I pulled out Sweater Weather.

Anyone who knows me, knows sketch challenges are the most difficult for me. I feel too boxed in and tend to take them to literally. But I stepped out and used a circle for the main element because I saw Diane on the DT didn't go with the rectangle. I felt I was given a license to switch it up. Thanks Diane!!!

Another first for me was using embossing paste with a stencil. I had to search for it in my studio! LOL. The first container was totally dried out, but I hit pay dirt on a second jar. Thank God us stampers have to have more than one of everything!!!

I embossed NN snowfall stencil and while it was wet, I sprinkled it with glitter. The snowflake element was a wooden shape that I just put some white ink on.

The sentiment is from the "Sentiments of the Season" set from NN.

Hope you are all having fun getting ready for the holidays! Take some time to check out the challenge at Inky Paws and join in.
