Thank You So Much

It seems as if I can't throw anything stamped away. I can clean out my cupboards and closets and toss away, but when it comes to stamping...I have to keep anything I stamp. You know, just in case I might use it later. I will be creating teddy bears cards, because before I bought my prismas I stamped several bears and colored them with CTMH coloring pencils and blended with my aquapainter and blending pen. These have been sitting on my scrap table just looking at me, so I had to use them for a card.

In addition, I needed to use a different style of card from the standard greeting card, 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. I have seen some gate fold cards lately and decided to design one of those. Here is the same card sitting up, so you can see the gate fold design. Notice I cut the baby pink ribbon so the card would open. But when the card is closed (above) the ribbon looks continuous. I fastened the ribbon on the card with a bronze photo hanger. This color looks great with pink. I used my Cuttlebug again on the striped pattern paper. It is hard to see in these pictures, but it shows up nicely in person.

Here I enlarged the embellishment in the upper right hand corner. I used solo "t" stamp set for the sentiment stamped in Hollyhock on Baby Pink cardstock and matted on Chocolate cardstock. I put a flower button in the middle and continued these in the lower left hand corner, so the card would have a "z" flow from the three embellishments used.

Other products used: The Best Way stamp set, More To Adore paper packet and CTMH chocolate marker.

More teddy bears to come!

Happy Stamping!
