Build a bear card

I am sorry I have been away so long. I have been very busy, and then got hit with gallbladder surgery! The good news is I will be feeling better very soon!

I want to share a card I made for Chance's 3rd Birthday, I love how it turned out, and it was so simple to make!

Basically I made the bear and then I didn't want to attach him to the card, I knew my son would want to tear it off, and that would ruin the card! So I had a great idea... I made a slip in the white layer of my card so I could slip a foot into it to hold him in place.

I stamped the Happy Bearthday in Brocade Blue and layered the white onto So saffron.
hope you enjoy.

another Birthday

So November is full of birthdays... This is one I made for one of my BFF's, It was her 39th ( really, not an again) Her favorite colors are pink and black... And it had to be fab.

So I started off with a large flower from the Pretties kit, Melon Mambo ink (refill) and an Aqua Painter. I took lots of pics so I could share my process with you.

So to color the flower you need to pick up the ink with your wet Aqua Painter, I start in the middle of my flower ( because I know it will be covered later, lol)

I get the color on my flower, then if I want it darker I can add more, or the cool thing is that if it is too dark I can get it wet and remove some of the color!

While the flower was drying I took my Shimmer paint that was mixed with rubbing alcohol and sprayed a piece of Basic Black cs, I then used my 1 inch circle punch. See the shimmer?? I used mini glue dots to attach the punched piece to my flower.

I was not sure what I was doing, so I got out my scalloped edge punch and a piece of Melon Mambo cs and punch the edge. Then, I love the Night and Day DSP, so I took a piece of it and used a length of white organza ribbon across the center of the melon Mambo, but it didn't look right...

So I then got out a length of Black 1/2 in grosgrain ribbon and layered it across the center of the Organza ribbon. I so love how this looks!! I used the glue dots to hold the ribbon in place.
Next I placed my fully embellished DSP onto a Basic Black card base ( I attached a whisper white cs piece inside so I could write my message)
Then I added my beautiful Flower...
But it still needs something.... I tried to figure this out for a bit, then I thought I would add a sentiment using the modern label punch... but want to layer it with the larger one that goes with the movers and shapers Bigz xl die ( big shot) So I managed to figure out how to cut it out... was going to be fancy and not use the Bigz die... I know I saw someone cutting out with out it, but it was just easier to use it in the long run ( 5 seconds vs 10 minutes locating the directions....)
What a disaster that turned out to be!! I loved the saying I used, but wanted to use some bling.... not enough room for that!!
So I ended up just stamping my words ( from a little birthday cheer) and using the corner rounder and layering it with a little bigger piece also with the corner rounder....

What do you think... was it worth all my trouble, trials and errors???

39 again???

I have been so busy... I hope you missed me! We have been battling lots of different bugs around here! I think the only one who never got sick was the dog!! We are all better, except my oldest, but he is a teenager so who knows how long this will take... he thinks he knows everything!

Anyway onto my card. I am so happy with how this turned out. I made this for my girlfriends 40th birthday (today) I was super busy all day and totally forgot to make it until 30 minutes before her party!! Its a good thing I knew what I wanted to make!

SO I started off with a piece of DSP from Razzleberry Lemon aide (item 115675 $9.95) then I used the scalloped edge punch across the bottom. I cut a piece of tempting Turquoise for the card base (11.5 x 4.25) folded in half. I layered the DSP on a piece of Whisper white cs that I stamped "Happy " from Happy everything stamp set ( item 115235 pg 142 $18.95) in Melon Mambo, then I tied a piece of Melon Mambo polka dot ribbon ( item 115611 $9.95) over the top. I made sure the knot was on the left. I stamped "Birthday" from the Happy everything set in tempting turquoise on the bottom edge of the white cs. I wrote "again" using the black journaling pen on a piece of WW and cut it to make a tag.

Here comes the best part.....

For the chip board numbers I used Frost White Shimmer paint ( item 116854 $5.95) and a drop of reinker ( Tempting turquoise on the 3, Melon Mambo on the 9 ) I used about 2 parts Shimmer paint to one part reinker. I painted the numbers using a paint brush. It only took about 15 minutes to dry, which was perfect sense my drive to her party was about 20 minutes away!!

tell me what you think!

thanks for stopping by
