Bridal Bliss

Remember that today is the last day to order from the Summer Mini. This set Bridal Bliss is on page 20. To make the dress part of the card I stamped the dress on the confetti white cardstock, then on the whisper white & again on the regal rose. I cut out just the train of the dress then smooched it with vanilla shimmer smooch spray. I cut out the ribbons & the flowers then glue them all together. The pink pirouette layer was run through the Big Shot machine with an texturz plate.

Cardstocks used: Regal Rose, Pink Pirouette, Confetti White & Whisper White
Stamp Set: Bridal Bliss
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz

Have some luck with Good Luck Bear

I thought today would be a good day for Good Luck Bear. My son's team is headed into their 2nd week of the football season & hopefully Mr. Good Luck Bear will bring them continued Good Luck at Friday Night's Game. Let's Go Eagles!
Make sure you have your registration in for my Build a Bear Workshop Event where we will be making Mr Good Luck Bear & his other Care Bear Friends.

Card Base: Crumb Cake
2nd layer & shamrocks: Garden Green
3rd layer, snout & tummy: Whisper White
Eyes & nose: Basic Black
Mouth: Pretty in Pink
To make the bear's tummy: I punched out a 1 1/4" circle out of whisper white then drew 3 small hearts & a stem with a wild wasabi marker.
To make the shamrocks in the corners of the card I punched 8 small hearts with the 3 heart punch out of garden green cardstock. Then just cut 2 little pieces to make the stems.
The words "Thank You Beary Much" are stamped in garden Green Ink. The are from the Beary Nice Wishes stamp set.

The last Care Bear, Grumpy will be posted on Thursday. Then a new group from my Build A Bear Event will start appearing every other day.

Funshine Bear

Happy Sunday to All! To celebrate some great weather & family time day, here is Funshine Bear from the Care Bear Group of Cards that are part of my up coming Build A Bear Workshop Event. Make sure you are signed up for this great event. I hope your weekend has been as good as mine has been. My oldest son's varsity high school football team won their season opener against my high school alma mater. Then I had a wonderful day hosting a scrapbooking event. What a wonderful group of ladies! We made a 20 page scrapbook ready for pictures all in about 4 hours. Not too bad huh? When was the last time you completed an album in less than 1/2 a day. : ) Now off to get the laundry done & for you to enjoy Funshine Bear.

Card Base & bottom layer of greeting: Tangerine Tango
2nd layer (base of top note die), 2nd layer of greeting & bear body: Daffodil Delight
3rd layer (top layer of top not die): Greenhouse Gala DSP
Bear's eyes & nose: Basic Black
Mouth: Pretty in Pink
Tummy & Cardstock for words: Whisper White
The words "Happy Bearthday" are from the Beary Nice Wishes stamp set & are stamped in Tangerine Tango ink.
To make the tummy: I punched a 1 1/4" circle then took the small end of a tangerine tango marker & drew a small circle. The I traced the circle with the fat end of a tangerine tango marker. I colored in the circle with the fat end of a daffodil delight marker. Then with the small end of a tangerine tango marker I just drew the 2 sides of a triangle for the rays & colored them in with a daffodil delight marker. Then I drew the smiley face with the tangerine tango marker. Be on the lookout on Tuesday for Good Luck Bear.

Cheer Bear

Here is the next in the Care Bear Line up for my Build a Bear Workshop Event on Sunday September 19th from 1 - 4 PM. If you have not signed up for this great event yet make sure you get your registration in. If you do not have a registration for email or call me & I will get you one ASAP. The last day to register is Friday September 10th. You will make 20 different bear designed cards for $40. Additional groups of 5 bear cards can be added for $10 a group. If you are unable to make the event but would like to have the workshop mailed to you send me an email. Cost would be the same plus shipping. If you have any questions let me know. Otherwise here comes Cheer Bear.

Card Base: Certainly Celery
3/4" Strips of (from the top down) Bashful Blue, Cherry Cobbler, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi & Marina Mist
Bear Body & mouth: Pretty in Pink
Bear Tummy & Snout: Whisper White
Eyes & Nose: Basic Black
To make the tummy: I punched out 2 1 1/4" circles in whisper white. 1 for the tummy & 1 to use to draw the bottom part of the rainbow. I just laid the 2nd circle on the 1st where I wanted the bottom color of the rainbow to start. Then I took the small end of a marina mist marker & traced the top of the circle. Then I moved the circle mask & traced the marina mist arc with the fat end of the marina mist marker. Then for each color going up I would take the small end of the next color marker & trace right about the previous color. Then I would go back with the fat end of the marker to make the line more bold. I did this in the following order, Marina Mist, Wild Wasabi, Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango & Cherry Cobbler.
The words "Beary Best Wishes" are stamped in Marina Mist at the top of the card on the Bashful Blue. The come from the stamp set Beary Nice Wishes.

Next to come is Funshine Bear.

I will be posting the Care Bears then they will be followed by the other Big Shot die Bears (Boys then Girls) then the last group to be posted will be the stamp cards. This group of Care Bear cards were inspired by some Care Bears made by fellow Stampin' Up Demonstrator Theresa Klawitter. Thanks Teri for the wonderful idea! The 1st Care Bear is Tenderheart Bear. 

The Card Base, Bear mouth & 3rd Layer: Pretty in Pink
2nd Layer, 4th Layer & Bear Snout: Whisper White
The Bear Body: Soft Suede

To Make Tummy: Punch 1 1/4" circle in whisper white. Punch 1 wide heart for a mask to outline around with the small end of a cherry cobbler marker. Remove mask & trace outline with large end of cherry cobbler marker. Color the inside of the heart with the fat end of a pretty in pink marker.
The words are stamped in Pretty in Pink Ink.
