Have a Beary Christmas!

Hi everyone!  Today I have a Christmas card to show you, but not with the tradition Christmas Colors.

I used a cute Polar Bear from the Precious Polar Bears Too Cute by Jessica file.  



Other supplies I used include:
My Pink Stamper A Punny-licious Christmas
My Creative Time Stitched Journal Die and Stitched Decorative Banners
White Signo Pen
Pop Dots

I decided to ink the edges of the scarf pieces--it made it more distinct.  And the mouth does not cut out--I drew that on.  This one looks better than the last one I drew :)

Have a fabulous day!

Birthday Wishes

Hi everyone!  Just a quick post today.  I needed a birthday card and I used this adorable polar bear from the Precious Polar Bears Too Cute by Jessica file. 


I cute the bear out at about 3 inches.  I don't type in the measurements, just kind of eyeball it on the grid :)  The bear is on the card with pop dots and I added some stickles to the earmuffs.  The file does not cut out a mouth, so I added it in myself with a pen--that's why it's a bit crooked--I am never straight.

The stamp is from My Pink Stamper Birthday Crazy stamp set and I added Doodlebug white sequins.

Have a fabulous day!

Santa Owl

Hi everyone!  I have another Christmas card to show you today.  I used a Santa owl from the Adorable Christmas Owls file from Too Cute by Jessica.


I have never been a good judge of how big I should cut a file and this is a good example :)  I made the owl 4 inches tall and he was very big.  So I made a 5x5 inch square card base to put him on.  I think I do like this size card.

On the whites of the eyes, I used some glossy accents.  And I pop dotted him on the card.

The stamp is from a Close to My Heart set and I used some yummy Candy Cane Trendy Twine for the card base and to make another fun pom pom.  I think I am getting better at those :)

Have a great day!
