FIRST BIRTHDAY TEDDY BEAR!

I can’t believe I forgot to show you this card.  I made this a few weeks ago for one of my Great Niece’s 1st Birthday.  I was a little stumped at first what to do as I had nothing really suitable.  I did consider the ‘Something for Baby’ set but then I thought PUNCH ART!! It has been ages since I did something like that.  This little bear took a little while to work out.  I did have a Punch Art Bear similar I had made a while ago but I had to reconfigure him.  Once he was done the card came together fairly quickly. Do you think he is cute???

I used a number of oval and circle punches to create his body and sponged all the pieces. The greeting is from ‘Chalk Talk’ and finished with some Melon Mambo Candy Dots. I embossed some Melon Mambo card with the ‘Alphabet Press’ Embossing Folder and layered this piece on to a piece of Whisper White (after tying around some Whisper White Baker’s Twine). Then this was all adhered on to a Melon Mambo Card base.

I hope you like my cute little friend.

I hope you have wonderful weekend wherever you may be. Sending some Bear Hugs your way.

SOMETHING FOR – A BABY BOY!

I have a few baby cards to make at the moment and the set ‘Something For Baby’ has just arrived in time. If you have baby cards to make this set is great.  I will tell you about the set below but I will show you the card first.

I have used Marina Mist and Real Red on this. I cut the little baby suit using the ‘Baby First’ Framelits from the Marina Mist card and then embossed it with the ‘Alphabet Press’ Embossing Folder.  This folder is ideal for a cute baby type  card. I wrapped around some White Baker’s Twine.  On a piece of Whisper White card I pierced the baby suit from the ‘Eclectic’ Piercing Template set and adhered that behind the Marina Mist card.  I adhered it all to the Marina Mist Base card.  I stamped and cut the little tie in Real Red and adhered that with Dimensionals. (Don’t just think of this tie for baby cards what about for Dad for Father’s Day???).  The tie adds a cute little touch. The greeting is from ‘Itty Bitty Banners’ and cut with the matching Framelits.

In the catalogue (p74)  this is available as a bundle which is just fantastic as you save 15% off for the bundle ($80.50 W and $68.75 C).  The Piercing Template is on p 218 is a great asset for this set and has piercing templates for the Tag Topper Punches, Star Framelits, Word Bubble Framelits and the Chalk Talk set.  A very versatile Piercing Template set at only $13.95.

In cutting the Baby suit out for this card and a second one I didn’t want to waste the off-cuts so I made up some other cards similar to this.

The heart is punched from the 2 step Owl Punch. The Marina Mist piece at the bottom has been embossed with the ‘Alphabet Press’ Embossing Folder again. The greeting is from ‘A Dozen Thoughts’ and punched out with the Word Window Punch.  I punched out a second one in Real Red and then cut it in half and layered it behind the white sentiment.

This is a little card measuring 10cmx10cm (4″x4″).  The heart is punched from the ‘Itty Bitty Accents’ Punch Pack.

Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the blog world.  If you are in the US, wishing your a Happy 4th July. 🙂
