Teddy Bears .... ohhhhh my .......

One more for the day ... here is a cute Teddy for Spring ... just for you.   I used crisp white recollections card stock and a printed stock from recollections as well which I cut into strips.  The cute bear was finished in water colors and the sentiment was stamped in clear crystal embossing powder.
So sweet and so fresh and ready for spring.
















I would like to add this for consideration into the Chocolate, Coffee and Cards Challenge #59 Teddy Bears  thanks so much for taking a peek.

Get Well Soon Soon Soon ....

This card I put together for the Color Me Pretty challenge for  CAS Sunday
I smugged and blended earth tone water color onto water color paper.  I then cut out a bunch of leaves with a punch and cut the remaining paper into strips.
Using sand recollections paper, I stamped Get Well in the center using gold glitter embossing powder and a white gel pen to help center.
I then glued the strips above and below the sentiment.  Using dimensional dots, I scattered the leaves around the sentiment.

As I said, I'm entering this into the Challenge #28 Color Me Pretty for CAS on Sunday

Thanks bunches for looking.

Nouveau Butterflies ....

I was given a new cartridge for my cricut that I wanted to try out.  Art Nouveau, lots of layering involved.  I put together a couple of cards ......
Using recollections card stock in green, red, blue and black: I constructed the butterfly with multiple layers.  I added embossing powder in blue and red sparkles to accent the wings a bit.  The sentiment was stamped with white embossing powder onto black recollection stock. The card base, was embossed with Cuttlebug Swiss Dots and the fly and sentiment attached with dimensional squares. White jell pen outline stitching.

Using the same card stock as above, just using a different size for the butterfly and using the scraps to create a layer effect while using my Fiskers edger.  The white jell pen was getting a work out .... the Sentiment stamped with white embossing powder and an added purple ribbon for a hug.



I adding these both to Chromatic Craze Challenge
using these colors






I think I'm going to like working with this cartridge.

Thanks for looking.
