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.

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.
