Festive Friday Element Challenge

Happy Friday dear friends!!  I have been having a ball this week with my family and I can't believe it's Friday already!!  Time does fly when you're having fun!!

My sweet friend Meredith from the Festive Friday Challenge invited me to join along in the fun this week!! 
Here's the challenge:
On to this week's challenge... it's time for an Element Challenge!


and here's my take on the challenge:
When I saw the challenge was using Candy Canes, I wasn't sure what I would do.  I really don't have any candy cane stamps or paper.  Then I remembered my trusty Friendship Jar Stamps from PTI!!  It has been a while since I've used them and they would be a perfect fit with my favorite PTI Snowman Die and Stamps!  Since I had all of my favorites out, I thought I would go ahead and use my favorite Glitz Design Patterned paper once again.
To make the Candy Canes.  I stamped the Candy Canes onto PTI's Vellum paper using Versamark Ink and then embossed using Ultra Fine Embossing Powder. Once the candy canes were embossed, I colored the back side of the Vellum with a R29 Lipstick Red Copic Marker.  I love the way it turned out!!  Totally fits with my Vintagy distressed snowman!!

Thank you to my friend Meredith for inviting me to play along with this week's challenge!!  I think I may have to join in more often so my Christmas Cards will be done on time!!

Supplies Used:
PTI Shape Series Snowman Die
PTI Friendship Jar Holiday Fillers
PTI Shape Up Snowman Accessories
PTI Cream Ribbon and Felt
PTI Sweet Blush Buttons
October Afternoon Tag
Glitz Design 6x6 Hello Friend Paper Pack
R29 Lipstick Red Copic Marker
Ultra Fine Embossing Powder
