Autumn & Christmas...

and

Obviously the card on the left is for the Christmas challenge but I wanted two different times of year for the “Twofer” challenge so the other os an Autumn theme.
The card on the left is grey card stock base card layered with white and more grey card stock.
On the grey I stamped the sentiment from MFT Stamps “Snowfall of Blessings” with Gina K amalgam ink.
On another icee of white card stock I stamped the bear from MFT Stamps “Bitty Bears” with Memento tuxedo black ink.
Once dry I colored it with Copic markers B97, B93, W2, W4, W6 and a white gel pen.
On another piece of white card stock I die cut the stitched circle with MFT Die-namics “Inside & Out Stitched Circle Die”, sponged it with Distress chipped sapphire ink while using MFT Mix-ables “Drifts & Hills” stencil.
Next I sponged white pigment ink through MFT Mix-Abel’s “SnowFlurry” stencil.
This I glued to the card front, cut out the bear with scissors and foam taped him to the front.
The card on the right starts with a light brown base card then a layer of beige textured card stock.
To that layer I stamped the sentiment from MFT Stamps “Let’s Get Cozy” withGina K amalgam chocolate truffle ink.
I trimmed out a square from Craftsmart “Fall Embossed Paper Pad” and applied it to the card front.
After stamping more bears as I did previously I colored them with Copic markers YR21, YR24, YR27, YG 17, YG67 and G29.
These I trimmed out with scissors and foam taped them to the card front.

Even though he is teeny tiny, that little bear is so huggable and darling! Two great cards, Arlene! He looks sweet in the snowy circle scene for Christmas and with his friends for a cozy autumn! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #20! Hugs, Darnell
