PTI November blog hop - mitten

Hi everyone! While surfing around on Pinterest, I found a picture that inspired me and went wonderfully with the theme for this month's PTI blog hop of snow!

Mitten die is from A*Muse Studio and I cut out two pieces of canvas and then stitched them together using red DMC floss. Added a piece of red felt for the top of the mitten and then went to work on the snowflakes.

Using a bit of shimmer cardstock from PTI, I punched out the base snowflake using my large EK Success snowflake punch. I had the mirror layer snowflake in my stash for years that came pre-assembled as an embellishment. I just took it a part and added the small snowflake button (colored with Copic R29).

Added some fir branches (Poppy Stamps) and twigs (Memory Box) and the red berries that I swiped off of some garland that I had.

Added the sentiment from the Signature Christmas stamp set and then finished adding snow using liquid applique and my heat gun.  If I was to do this again, I would use felt for the body of the mitten. The canvas unraveled too much for my liking. 

Thanks for stopping by! I hope everyone has a blessed Thanksgiving with friends and family! Enjoy!
