Before I get to the card I made, I have some news. I am soooo excited that Christine Armstrong has asked me to join the high hopes divas as a DT member. How fabulous is that? I love high hopes adorable images and it is an absolutely wonderful company. So, if you like blog candy you will want to regularly visit the divas blogs because there are many blog candy give aways scheduled. Anna has blog candy up now and you can visit her blog HERE for the deets. I have to add the links to my sidebar but just have not had the chance yet.
My card today uses the vintage toys set which was released from hanna stamps today.
I stamped my teddy on watercolor paper and used inkpads, my marker and an aquapainter to color it. I then cut him out after he was colored. I stamped my verse on shimmery white paper and sponged it with pink while it was still in my nestability die. I paper pierced the scallops. I used my new argyle cb folder (also available at hanna stamps) on the bg layer because it kinda looks like a quilt and because it has "stitching" in it which coordinates with the teddy and so of course I stitched the bg to my brown layer. I have to admit that I am not the best sewer as I can't seem to get my stitched lines straight- guess I need to keep practising. Anyway I tied my ribbon around my cardstock into a bow and then adhered my circle to it and then the teddy which is on pop dots. This was attached to my blush card base and I finished off with the buttons which coordinate with the teddie's buttons. I also used buttons because it is one of the challenges from the release party. You can play along too and have more chances to win prizes if you complete it. This is also for our weekly challenge which is to use pink- here is the link to that challenge. The October challenge also involves using this vintage toys set and you can check that out HERE.
