Spotlight Technique + Adorable Bear Couple


Today is a good day to be happy!  We just moved Louisa and her mommy and daddy back to Wichita!!!  Now it will be so much easier (and cheaper).  Just a two hour drive as opposed to waiting at the airport, flying to Denver, taking a train and then an uber for a total of about 4 to 5 hours depending on traffic.  I AM THRILLED.

Just finished up this card with that adorable bear featuring the Spotlight Technique.  I ran a circle die through my machine on a plain sheet of cardstock, laid that over my stamped picture and just colored within the circle with my copics.   What a cool technique!

 

Created a little tag to match the bear's basket and popped that on with some pretty twine.



You can just see the back of the decorated envelope in the first pic.  I think this is a cute and easy way to tie the envelope to the card inside.


When I finished up the Spotlight card, I remembered that I also had this cute bear couple waiting around for me.  I also have a bunch of string-tie envelopes that I rediscovered during the major upheaval to turn my craft room into a nursery.  Or a least, get enough room to have a crib in there.


I created a piece of stationery to go along with the bears and a sentiment too.  Then I duplicated the little flower bouquet to use on the front.  Got lucky that I remembered that cute little bear stamp and colored it to match the little teddy the girl bear is holding.

Dropbox seems to work differently for different people.  Either right click and save when image appears or click the download button in the top right corner.  If neither method works, email me and I'll send the files to you.

So here's wishing you a good day to be happy!   In fact, make it a good week!

Swing Top Cards

What are Swing Top Cards?  Cards that instead of opening the normal way, the top swivels to reveal the sentiment on the bottom layer.  I guess I could have called them Swivel Top cards...but oh, well.  Swing Top it is.


Meet Calendar Girl.  Isn't she and her kitty sweet?  You can download her below.


I love the sweet kitty with the mouse.  I saw these Little Meow stamps on Fiki's (a.k.a. Bad Kitty) blog and started looking for them.  I found my set on ebay and it had to come from the UK.  There are three different sets of kitties made by DoCrafts.  I think the doily stamp on this one is really pretty.  Well, I can't find this set anywhere now.  Did I get the last one????


Both cards swing open on a brad.


I hole punched the plaid circle and just used a hole in the doily to connect them together with a brad.  Those pretty blue dots are made with Nuvo Crystal Drops.  


Tip:  The rosette is accented with a piece of washi tape.  Fun!


Here's the inside of the Calendar Girl card.  The sentiment is included in the download.
