It's all about mittens at CCEE

It's Thursday! And that means it's time for another CCEE Stamper's Challenge. Charlene challenged us to use mittens on our card. Now, I haven't had a use for mittens in years. *sniff* How I miss building forts for snowball fights, making the perfect snowman, and just plain enjoying the stillness in the morning after an evening snowfall. Okay....enough reminiscing...onto my card.

I used Spellbinders' mitten die and embossed it with the Houndstooth Cuttlebug folder while still in the die. I then ink distressed it with Pumice Stone Ranger Distress Ink. I made a sentiment tag to put into the mitten with a sentiment from the JustRite set Christmas Nested Frames. The inside sentiment is also from that set and both were framed using the new Nested Sentiment Custom dies. The sentiments and dies can be found at Stamper's Dream. Be sure to check out the Sales and Specials section too.

I also added a Martha Stewart punched snowflake with some Transparent Viva Decor gel and glitter to the center, along with a few buttons and Burlap Twine. The border punch was made with a Martha Stewart border punch.

That's it for today. Thank you so much for stopping by. Be sure to check out the CCEE Stamper's blog to see what the other gals have done with mittens, and we'd love to have you join us.

Happy Stamping my friends!!
Tosh

Squeal!!! I adore the rustic flavor you gave this mitten card. You have a way of breathing life into paper that's just uncanny.
