Hello friends! I hope your week is going great this far! I've been in a crafting rut for several weeks but today FINALLY I got a little mojo back!! I'm hoping that tomorrow after I run some errands for my mom that I will have some more playing time. It felt good to finally make something!
I've got a few new things that I haven't got a chance to play with so for this card I combined three companies that I love My Creative Time, Peachy Keen Stamps, and Close To My Heart! I love that I can tie them all together :)
Peachy Keen is having a "Beary" sweet challenge and I just had to play along and use this adorable little bear that my bud Shar sent me (thank you Shar!) It's by Buggy Designs and it's called Button Bear. Isn't it sweet! I used two different PK sets for her face. I used PK-114 Hot Diggity Dog for her eyes and PK-136 Large Bear Facial Features for the nose and mouth. I added some glossy accents to her eyes and nose. I used the chocolate candy die from My Creative Time's, Chocolate Greeting set. I just got in the Whooo's Your Valentine kit yesterday and knew that the silver glitter paper that is included would be perfect for this die! I also used it for her bow which is a Martha Stewart punch and I added a little pink gem from my stash to the center. The little heart border she is sitting on is also a Martha Stewart punch that I've had for AGES! The banner that I stamped my sentiment on is from My Creative Time's, Vintage Stitched Label die. The sentiment is from the Chocolate Greeting set. The paper is by Carta Bella called Devoted (my sweet boss lady sent it to me hee hee thanks Emma!)
Here is a side view. I popped the candy and banner up using pop dots. I didn't read the directions to well for the challenge till after I had this made but this is a 3D challenge :( I'm counting these two as my 3D items! Ok, I know it's a stretch but come on they are 3D!!! Anyhoo, whether I'm disqualified or not I had a blast making this and so glad to have some mojo back! Thanks for looking! Hugs, Leanne
