Teddy Bear Wishes


How cute is this chap! The great thing is he was super easy to create and I got to use my new Bow Builder Punch. I based my card on one by Joni Andaya. She had a girly version too so I might have to try that one day soon too. The eyes are 1/2″ circles (I think?? or maybe it was the small circle from that triple pack of punches we had) The nose is the large oval which I double punched to shorten up the length. It is higlighted with some tiny double punched 1/2″ white circles. The muzzle was one of the Oval Framelit dies which trimmed shorter athe bottom “point” to round it out.

Every Little Bit Punch Art Teddy

Finally I have enough time and sanity to share some work with you all! Thank you for being patient : ) You might remember this card that I shared some weeks ago.

P1010385 (480x640)When I posted it I hadnt finished the inside of it but I have now so here is what I did…..

P1010417 (382x640)

You might recognize my pop up insert which you can find instructions for here. I used the same wee duck and teddy stamps from Every Little Bit to decorate the insert and created a wee punch art teddy based on the ELB teddy, His head isn’t quite as wide but I’m good with that.

Try Stampin’ on Tuesday #88

I know, two posts in one day! BUT I really wanted to get this challenge entered and today is the last day so two it is.

The lovely CherylAnn from Try Stampin’ on Tuesday gave us a sketch to work from for this weeks challenge. The design Team made some fabulous samples too , my favourite was the Clockworks one by Nancy. Here is the sketch

 And here is what I did with it.

The teddy bear pattern was from an old card making mag I had and he has been tweaked to make him more dimensional. Have a close look

I got to use my brand new Delicate Doilies sizzlit L  Die with some of that yummy DSP from Snow Festival. Cute huh!

Dont forget about the Papercrafters Day this Sunday 10-4 here in Leseton and the Bowling Club

Beary Fancy Birthday Card

 Lucky me, this card earned me both another First Place and Special Prize! I haven’t tried this fold before but it has been on my To Do list for a while and was actually pretty easy. The teddy was on that list too and turned out very cute each piece is hand cut and sponged as are the balloons and pennants.

 The parcels are just strips of paper folded to add dimension, edges sponged and  then tied with Bakers twine. The green starry paper is from the Snow Festival DSP pack in the Holiday catalogue and the stripe is from Comfort Cafe in the Annual catalogue as is the Cajun Craze one. Here is what the card fold looks like from the side

 Dont forget about the October promotion where you can get FREE ribbon when you make a $70 purchase. the other great thing is that there is NO LIMIT on how many rolls you can earn! Also MARK your diary for the next Papercrafters Day here in Leeston on October 28th, dont forget to let me know if your coming. We are focusing on Christmas this month and I will be demonstrating how to make a Christmas Ornament similar to the one on the cover of the Holiday Catalogue!

Beary Cute

Another children’s birthday card today, this time for my wee four yr old friend. I admit this is also one I had seen somewhere and it would have been helpful to know where so I could have gone back and got sizes and shapes so I wouldn’t have to experiment and think as hard as I had to to get it right : ) I will have to find something else to do with all the cast off shapes I put aside!

Isnt she Beary Gorgeous!
