Adorable Teddy

Hi everyone,

This adorable card is using the Crafter;s Companion Bear. I made three in different colors but this grey bear is my favorite. The bear was stamped onto neenah cs and colored with copic markers.
copics: N0,2,4, R61,63, YG63.67.  I die cut the image using my sizzix circles and an open scallop circle to layer under the image. I used glimmer silver cs from recollection. Its a lovely thicker cs. The circles were all layered with dimensional's  onto 5.5 sq neenah white cs. I used the SU lacy border punch with the silver and cut two borders one for the top and one for the bottom of the cs. I have seen a lot of thee thin cirlcle cuts so decided to use my program make the cut and created a thin circle and duplicated it two more times and welded all three together to make one. I cut it using my expression and a glitter pink/purple ombre glitter cs. I am very pleased at how it turned out. They don;t look as thin as the die cut ones but I am still pleased. I am going to use the card as either a birthday or baby card. I am putting this card into this challenge.

Fabulous Flamingo!

Hi everyone,
I am still creating cards but life is busy right now. Family comes first so that does keep me going. I have created this card and decided to add it to some challenges this week. The stamp is from Stupendous called what else Flamingo. 

The  card base is 5 x 7  ready made White cs. I Then cut a layer 4.5 x 6.5 and stamped the background with SU botanical blooms using old olive ink. I then cut a mellon mombo shape using a die from SU. I used an embossing folder on the layer and for the image I also used the next smallest shape after I colored the image. To color I used stampin' up markers mellon mombo, peach parfait and blushing bride for the flamingo. The water was soft sky, and the foliage is old olive and pear pzazz. I added a small dragon fly from an older set (2007) from Crafty Secrets. The feathers were stamped using ART-C   No name on the package so they are just feathers.  I added two gold banners at the top, a melon mombo bow and glittered the feathers and wings. I love painting birds of all kinds so when I seen this stamp I had to buy it. I will add this card into these challenges,
