I used April Bo 02 from the April membership pack and went with a clean and simple card.  I coloured him with Prismacolor pencils.  I apologize for not taking a photo of him BEFORE I added Distress Ink to the edges, it kind of camouflaged my colouring.  But I loved the effect it gives, of night closing in around him.

Shirt - 738, 738.5, 739, 747

Teddy Bo & Co. and A Mini Album Page

Hello and welcome here!  It's time to share some Teddy Bo & Co. inspiration.  You can check out some of the action and sneak peeks over on the Facebook page.  Today I have a mini album page to share with you.

Mini Album Page Size:  4" x 6"
My dad passed away Aug. 2016 and I thought a little mini album of the kids and Grandpa from our time with him in July would be special. 

 I used Heartfelt Creations Delicate Asters paper collection.

Lots of people saw my dad as a big teddy bear, so it worked out great that I am part of the Teddy Bo & Co. DT and used a teddy bear image from the April Membership release.

It's a double slider card.  I am teaching a class at the local scrapbook store, The Scrapbook Cottage, on creating a double slider card but I also wanted to show how you can use it in your mini albums as well.

Copics Used:
Fur - E21, E33, E57, E59, E51
Vest - V91, V93, Prismacolor 752
Pants - YG61, G21, Prismacolor 756

Coat/Hat - E81, Y28

Hat Scarf - YG61, G21

Cuttlebug Mania Easter Bunny Challenge

Hello and welcome here!  It's time for another Cuttlebug Mania challenge and since Easter is around the corner, Easter it is...with a bit of a twist, you need to have an Easter bunny on your project.  And don't forget to use your Cuttlebug!

Challenge -Easter Bunny
For a chance at winning an awesome prize, link your creation over at Cuttlebug Mania.
Challenge runs for 2 weeks.
Don't forget to let us know how you used your Cuttlebug

Card Size: 4.25" x 5.5"
I used a journaling card from Echo Park's Celebrate Easter collection.  I wanted to have a scalloped frame for the image but I don't have one, so I made one by using an scalloped edge die. 

Technique Tip:  I cut my paper so that it is long enough to go past the edges of the image by about 1/4".  I then glue all the edges onto the back of the image...the corners will have overlapping edges.  I then cut through both cardstock pieces at a 45 degree angle.  I then fix any bits of the scallop edges on the corners if needed.  By cutting through both layers at the same time your corners will join perfectly.  I may do a short tutorial on this at some point.

Just in case you couldn't read the smaller photo.  I used Taylored Expressions felt for the flowers!

Recipe:  PP-Echo Park Celebrate Easter 3x4 Journaling Cards & Hippity Hoppity, CTMH CS-White Daisy, Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes, My Favorite Things Stitched Scallop Edges, Tattered Lace Florentine Bow, Joy Craft Flower Trio, Taylored Expressions Felt-Pink Sherbert & Lilac, Foam, Pearl.

Cuttlebug Items Used:

Hope you can join us for the challenge!

Contest closes Monday Apr. 3rd midnight EST.  The winner will be announced Apr. 5th on the HC Blog and Facebook page.  Good luck and have fun!
I have lots of photos to share with you today!

I altered a candle holder.  I found it for 25 cents at the local thrift store!

Here is what it looked like to start with.  Just a plain black metal holder.
The ribbon I found at Dollarama, it's 4.5" wide.  I used a hot glue gun to attach it in strategic places on the holder, leaving it loose so that the flowers would nest into it.

For the part that holds the candle, I used black fun foam to build up the area, and then covered it with the ribbon.  I then attached it to the holder.

I used Botanical Rose stamp set, I stamped the image using grey ink onto white cardstock.  I cut them out using the matching Botanical Wings die and coloured them using various Distress Inks.

 The base of the holder is done, now I just have to add flowers to the top. 

I used the Classic Leaf and Open Leaf stamp set and the matching dies for the greenery.  I tuck them in around the flowers.











Recipe:  HCPC-3651 Botanical Rose SS, HCD1-758 Botanical Wings Die, HCPC-3546 Classic Leaf SS, HCD-736 Classic Leaf Die, HCPC-3545 Open Leaf SS, HCSTI-401 Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit, CTMH White Daisy CS, Bazzill CS-green, CTMH Ink-Whisper & New England Ivy, Distress Inks-Aged Mahogany, Scattered Straw, Abandoned Coral, Faded Jeans, Forest Moss, Prills-Gilt Trip, Minnie Pearls, Heart of Gold & Lemon Chiffon, VivaDecor Glitter Holo Iridescent, Metal Candle Holder, Black Fun Foam, Candle, Hot Glue Gun, Ribbon 4.5" wide.

Teddy Bo & Co. The Bears

Hello and welcome here.  I have been busy the last few days colouring up some digital stamps by Teddy Bo & Co.  This is the 3rd card I have to share.  I have a bit of a tutorial showing the steps I used to paper piece the images.  You can find the action happening over on the Facebook page.

Card Size:  5" x 7"
 I used March-TheBears05 and 06 for my card.  I also paper pieced them which gave them dimension.  The camera doesn't do it justice, it's really 3Dish in real life.

Sorry for the large photo, but it gives you a better idea of the layers.  I'll show you how I did it if you keep reading.

Bo Fur - E21, E33, E35, E27, E53
Shirt - G21, G43, G82, G85
Hat - E31, E42, E43
Sky - BG0000

Bea Fur - E11, E13, E15, E17, E51, E21, Y23
Shirt - R81, R83, R85, C0, C1
Hat - E42, E43
Puff on Hat - C0, C1
Sky - BG0000

Recipe:  PP-BoBunny Garden Journal Pastel, Bazzill CS-black & grey, CTMH CS-White Daisy, Foam, BoBunny Lattice Frame Die.

 So I printed the image 3 times.  I fussy cut out the pieces...I should have kept the face and collar as one piece.  I coloured the areas that are going to be covered with the pieces in grey.

 Here I've coloured the shirt and fur.

Here are all the pieces coloured and ready to be assembled.

Start with adding the collar and face piece.  Here I had to add them separate because I cut them out separately, oops.

The added face.

I've added the snout.

Here's the image ready to be added to the card.

Here are the Bea pieces.  This time I remembered to keep the face and collar together.  I also printed her 3 times and fussy cut the pieces.

Here are the pieces ready to be added to the main image.

I decided the puff could be added separately, so I cut it off to add with foam.

Here I added the puff, it gave it great dimension.

 All finished and ready to be added to a card.

Enjoy, I hope you enjoyed the step by step photos.
