Annie's challenge

Thanks to you all for sharing some amazing creations over the last fortnight we love to visit your blogs.

It's Friday and time for another super challenge at Teddy Stampers.
 This challenge was chosen by our very talented Annie...she would love you to use on your creation
A square, a circle, a rectangle an oval, use at  least 2 different shapes 
 Our generous sponsor for this challenge is Whiff of Joy Stamps
challenges I would like to share in:
Just Cute Bears ~ bear necessities ...clean and simple .....hope this is simple enough
Paper Play ~  anything goes

 The card is taken from 2 angles so you can see the silver as the other angle looks grey.

I had a brilliant time playing with my sisters new toy. A hot foil print wizard
I stamped the LOTV 'christmas ted balancing act' onto printable tracing paper. Heat set it just to dry it quickly then put the special foil between the tracing paper and my card and drew the lines in with the pen like tool.

As you draw... slowly is best, the foil embosses onto the card. You can print any greeting on to the tracing paper with your computer or use as I did a stamped image. If you hop over to their site you can see all the info about it.
This was my second go, I missed some of the lines on my first one. I coloured his hat and the parcel bow
with a stardust gel pen.

The double sided DP is Christmas Jingle set from Stampin' Up which comes with self adhesive die cuts, borders and matching cardstock fabulous kit, from Victoria
The sentiment was ready done from Craftwork cards and mounted onto punched ovals using punches from Stampin' Up.

Thanks for stopping by have a fun weekend
