Double Trouble with Barry Bear

Despite it being January, it's Christmas every week at the ABC Christmas Challenge.  The theme this fortnight is an easy "A for Animal". We're being sponsored by Stampfairy and I've made 2 more circle step cards, both using Stampfairy's Barry bear. I've coloured him in grey for the first card, and brown in the second for some variation.  I don't usually colour Barry in brown, but he looks cute (and a bit younger!) so he may be brown more often now!

And here's my second card, without the snowflake dies; just an embossed circle step card, two trees and my image.  Oh and a spot of snow!  Simples !!!

See my cards available to buy on eBay


Card Recipe:
  • Image - Barry Winter 1 and Barry Winter 2 from Stampfairy
  • Colouring - Promarkers, Copics, Sakura Stardust Gel pens
  • My Favourite Things Snowflake Dies
  • Cuttlebug Snowflakes Embossing Folder
  • Go Kreate Large Scalloped Circle Dies
  • Marianne Design Tree die
  • Glossy Accents
  • Liquid Pearls
  • From my stash -  Stickles, Pearls
I've been inspired by:
Happy crafting.
