Teddy Presents

I must be feeling better.... I'm keen to get into the craft room and am able to sit for an hour or so at a time....  So blog surfing and made myself a list of challenges to consider....

Really enjoyed the Step card the other day, so decided to have a go at a Side Step card for Simon Says Stamp Challenge.  


Teddy Presents

I started by cutting the card base.  Found a tutorial page (here)  giving the dimensions.  I then sponged the card with Hero Arts Pool Shadow ink and then overstamped it with the Envelope Pattern in the same ink.  Such a subtle colour.  I then stamped Teddy onto the base and again onto white card.  Coloured with Copics and cut out to pop onto the base.  For the presents I used Gift Boxes stamp by Penny Black.  I embossed them in black and then sponged different colours of distress ink and cut them out. to stick to the steps.

As I used 2 or more stamped images, I'm also entering this into Paper Play's challenge this week. 

Thinking especially of my friends in USA today, your 10th anniversary of 9/11.  Watched an amazing doco last night ~ time seems to have flown by.

Take care and thanks for visiting
