Emboss It With Stamps R Us!

Wow, it’s the last few days of November, and where did the month go!  We have a great new challenge for you, and it’s “embossing”.  We are being sponsored by Sketching Stamper Digi Stamps, who generously gave the DT members images to work with.  To find out all the details and what prize is being offered, head on over to the Stamps R Us challenge blog.  Good luck everyone!


I love the look of this Santa.  It’s nice to have a change.  I’ve decided to go with a monochromatic color theme of blue.  I’ve colored the digi with Copics, and added some white flock for the “muff’.  The embossing was done with a folder by Sizzix. 

I hope you’ll join us for the two week challenge at Stamps R Us.  Have a wonderful week!
