Build A Bear Cards

I have taken the bears I built and made them into cards

For the first card I used Pretty in Pink and BAB DSP. The second card I used some retired Riding Hood Red DSP. The third card I used BAB DSP and Pumpkin Pie cardstock. The last one is my Cardinal player which I put on Real Red. I ran the Very Vanilla cardstock thru the Big Shot with the textured plates.

Party Dress Card

I found a tutorial to make this dress from the Scallop Circle Die. I used some retired DSP in Riding Hood Red. Here is the YouTube video on how to make the dress.

More Bears

These bears are very addictive. Here are two more. One is a St. Louis Cardinals player for my nephew and the other is for alittle girl I know. I used the new BAB Designer Paper for the skirt and jacket. I used Pretty in Pink for the blouse and accessories. For the baseball player I used Real Red and Whisper White. I embossed the baseball from Just Baseball with whisper white powder.

Colts Fans Build A Bear

When I saw mtech's cheerleader on SCS I knew I had to make some Colts Fans. The flower from Kind and Caring Thoughts has always reminded me of poms poms. I used brillant blue and whisper white cardstock. The football comes from a SU set and I cut it out. Now I will need to make some St. Louis fans for my nephew.

Cold & Cuddly II

Here is a card using the penguin. It is hard to see but I used brocade and bashful blue pastels to shade the background around the iceberg. I used Real Red for the card base, Whisper White, and Night of Navy for the accents. I embossed the iceberg and sign with Night of Navy Craft and clear powder. The penguin is Basic Black Craft, the hat Ruby Red Craft, and clear powder. I used the small oval punch and the scallop oval punch for the words. Again I used the snowflakes from Serene Snowflakes with Whisper White. The iceberg is painted with Champagne Mist shimmer paint.

Cold and Cuddly I

Today I was playing with my new set Cold and Cuddly. I just love the penguin. bear, and walrus. I used Night of Navy for the card base and Brocade Blue for the card front. I embossed the iceberg using Night of Navy Craft and clear powder, I embossed the bear with Whisper White powder on brocade blue. I painted the iceberg with Champagne Shimmer Paint. I added chunky white glitter to the front of the iceberg. I wanted to add Dazzling Diamonds but I couldn't find my dd glitter. I used the snowflake from Serene Snowflakes with Whisper White. The words and the fishing pole are stamped in Night of Navy. I popped up the bear with a dimensional.

Pictures from Scrapbook

Here are the individual pages from the scrapbook. The new My Digital Studio is awesome. You can have your album professionally printed, saved as .jpg, make a movie or burn a DVD. The gifts that you can make with this program are unlimited. Next I am going to make a calendar, then a card. You can have the cards professionally printed. Wouldn't that be great to be able to design a card and then have them printed.

Video Using My Digital Studio

Here is a video of the scrapbook I made using My Digital Studio. It took me about an hour. I saved it as a movie so it is alittle blurry because I saved it as the smallest file I could which causes the quality to be not the best.

Online Garage Sale

I am cleaning out my stampin room of all my retired Stampin Up items. Please check out my online store. If you would like something and don't wish to pay shipping you can always pick up your items. So far I have 30 items and plan to add more. Happy looking!!!!!

Technique Class

Here are the samples from my Techniques Galore Class. We did bleaching and baby wipes. Each technique had two applications so we ended up with 4 sets of directions and 4 cards. I got a little carried away with the bleach on the one direction card.
