Build a Bear Birthday Card


On the weekend, we helped my cousin's daughter celebrate her 1st birthday. I thought it would be fun to make her a card using the Build a Bear set.

Since Convention, I was inspired to try some Watercolouring. I stamped the image with Staz-On ink onto Watercolour Paper. Then using an Aqua Painter and my inks, I coloured in the bear. I used Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzaz and Early Espresso.

I popped up the dress, the head and the balloon to give it a bit of dimension.

The designer series paper is from the new In-colour Collection. These new designer series paper slabs are awesome!!

Have a great day!!

Build a Bear--Thank You Card


I hope you are having a great day!! On the weekend, I sat down in my studio just to play around with my stamps. It felt so good to make cards just for fun. I thought I would make a card that was clean and simple. I really like the new Build a Bear collection and thought it would make a quick and easy thank you card.

My bears were stamped in Staz-on ink then onto Whisper White card stock. I coloured them in with a variety of markers. The greeting is from the Beary Nice Wishes stamp set.
