Creating update

Hi all,
Have been MIA due to issues at home. All seems to be settling down now so I am in the mood to update.

I have been busy creating for LSBS with the latest 2 kits I have received. Just love all the products and haven't really had to add too much. All links will take you to Little Scrapbook Shop store.

As always, you can click on the images for a larger view.


Teddy Broach Birthday Card

broach detail (can you see the pin?)
This little card would be ideal for an older little girl (or boy) who could take the broach off the card and wear all day on their birthday!

There is a little story behind the bear. . .

While I was away at my girls' weekend away in November, we were having a pajama party on the Saturday night. We were supposed to bring our teddy bear with us, but I forgot mine so I had to make one. So, I stamped up the teddy and turned him into a 3D broach that I wore on my jammies!!

The next day, we were having a pink card competition, and I thought that my teddy would make a lovely embellisment/gift on a card, and that's how this card came to be!!

~ KaiserCraft Clear stamps - Birthday + acrylic block
~ Stazon inkpad - jet black
~ White gel pen
~ Adhesives - Mounting foam & Dimensional medium (to stick the pin to the back of the bear)
Other - Lucy's Bear stamp, silver border stickers, patterned papers

Techniques: Paper tole to create the teddy (stamped several bear images then cut out sections to create a 3D image, adhered with mounting foam); the words were highlighted with the white gel pen
