Teddy Bo & Co.

Hi everyone!

Hope you're all having a good weekend?

Today's card is made using stamps and papers which came free with this month's Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine, and it's a fabulous freebie.  It's Teddy Bo & co!

The image and sentiment stamps are both part of the free stamp set, and they also come with a little boy bear and some other sentiments and things.  There are papers for both sexes, but being me I chose to use the pink version today.

I have used Papermania Textured Cardstock for the matting layers (in pink and white) and two of the papers from the free kit.  I have decorated the insides to match but reversed the usage of the papers.

The lacy edging was cut using a Martha Stewart punch, and I have used Spellbinders to cut the image and sentiment layers.

The gorgeous image has been cololured using my promarkers and it was very simple to colour in.

I have layered this all up using pinflair and some foam pads for more dimension.

To finish off I have added some roses, leaves and a small, silver filigree corner from Wild Orchid, and some faux pearls from my stash.

I am entering this card into the Wild Orchid Challenge and the theme there is 'Anything Goes!'  What a fab theme.
And Crafter's Companion Challenge  with the theme of 'Here Comes Summer,' as this teddy is wearing the sort of things we're all wearing this summer, lol.

Have a great weekend Folks!

  2. Hi Sue! Hope you're ok?

    Yes, they're a brilliant set of stamps and I reckon they're going to be very well used. No one who gets that mag this month is going to be disappointed, that's for sure.

  3. Gorgeous card Lexie, I think I will have to treat myself to one of these magazines. I very rarely buy them. Good luck in the challenges.
