Polar Bear Play

Hello! I have found recently that I truly misses playing along with challenges, and since then I am so happy to have found the Simon Says Stamp Monday and Wednesday challenges. The Design Teams are so incredibly talented, and the challenges are always super inspiring. The current Wednesday challenge is "Snow White."  I immediately thought of this sweet little polar bear family from Stampendous. My full instructions are below.

2. Color the image with the Zig Clean Color Markers listed.

3. Die cut the image out with the Large "Q" die from the Fitted Frames Set A.

4. Apply Sticky Panels to Stampendous Mixed Media Paper and die cut using the Small "W" Fitted Frame.

5. Peel top of the Sticky Panels, center and apply polar bear image.

6. Pour Shaved Ice on top of the exposed Sticky Panel. Shake off excess.

7. Pour Multi Crystal Glitter Mix to the same area, to fill in the gaps of the Shaved Ice.

8. Create the card base with Velvet Night cardstock, cut to the size of 5 1/2" x 8."

9. Apply VersaMark ink to the edges of the card base.

10. Sprinkle Lapis embossing powder on to the perimeter of the card and heat set.

11. Adhere the Polar Bears to the top of the card, leaving plenty of room for ribbon.

12. Apply 2 rows of Pastel Blue Glimmer Ribbon to the bottom of the card.

That's it for me today. Tomorrow I have a fun tutorial I created with my daughter. So if you've got kids, please come back to see it. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
