Brrr...

This week's Ways to Use it Challenge at Splitcoaststampers is Cut it Out -- cutting out the image or sentiment. I realized I'd done that a few times recently, so it was a perfect challenge for me!

I used two sides of some October Afternoon Night Light paper and some of my favorite All That Scraps stamps to put together this card. I do love this Cocoa Emma sitting on the Park Bench! The sentiment is from Snowflake Stamps by AmyR Stamps.

I colored, of course, with Copics. I used paper snips and a craft knife to cut out the images, then I popped them up on dimensionals. I sponged around the sentiment and also mounted it on dimensionals. I did some distressing and machine stitching on the paper panels.

That's it for today! I'm hoping for some stamping time today -- I need to work on previews for the upcoming ATS and MFT releases! Each month the images get better and better! :)

Thank you so much for visiting today -- I always appreciate it when you stop by!

Have a great day!
Christina

This is so cute! Love the stitching and I'm amazed you had the patience to cut that out - I certainly would not have. But it looks fantastic!
