Santa Squirrels - Stampin' Up! Banner Year

   I made sure I had some stamping time over the weekend and played along with a few challenges.  I love doing challenges as it makes me have a starting point for a card idea as well as looking at my stamps to maybe use them in a way I hadn't thought of before.  

  I used the Tic Tac Toe Challenge for my card today.  There are so many fun combos you can choose from that you could easily do a card for each line!  I used the "Plaid, Snow, Critter" down line.  I don't have any sets that have Christmas critters so I made do with the cute squirrel from Banner Year.

  I started with a Misty Moonlight base and then a layer of Plaid Tidings DSP in a nice blue/red(pink?) combo.  Then a scalloped square in Misty Moonlight embossed with the Winter Snow embossing folder.

  I had these 3 stitched squares already cut and in my card parts pile from a design that didn't work out so I thought they would be a good base for my 3 stamped squirrels.  I used Soft Suede, Crumb Cake and Gray Granite.  Each square is popped on dimensionals.  The Santa hats are stamped in Real Red and then fussy cut.

  I also had the snowflakes from the So Many Snowflakes dies already cut so they fit nicely in the open space on the larger square.  I used a Seaside Spray faceted gem and a Misty Moonlight enamel dot for the the centers.

  The sentiment from Perfectly Plaid is stamped in Misty Moonlight and then cut apart and adhered with mini dimensionals.

  Plaid - check. Snow - check. Critter - check.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
