RI SOTW - Christmas Teddy


Happy Monday - it's time for another Repeat Impressions Stamp of the Week!  This week's stamp is this adorable Christmas Teddy (2007-I) image.  This week only you can have this cute little fella for 50% off - head over to The House That Stamps Built to find out how!

I colored Teddy with Copic markers, and then I took a terrycloth towel with Colorless Blender and dabbed  it on his fur to make it look more vintage-y to go with my papers.  I paper pieced the hat and scarf and for the fringe, I used some kitchen twine that I colored with a dark purple Copic marker.  I added a little Liquid Applique for the trim on the hat.

The patterned papers are Kaisercraft's Dear Santa collection and I used this week's Crazy 4 Challenges (C4C61) sketch for my layout.  And you might think that's a button on my bow, but it's a brad I made using Stampin' UP!'s Build-A-Brad and scraps from my background patterned papers. Finally, the self adhesive pearls in the upper right corner were colored with the same Copic marker I used on the scarf fringe.

Be sure to head over to The House That Stamps Built to see the great cards the rest of the team has created with this week's Stamp of the Week!

Thanks for stopping by!
