Teddy Stampers # 9 Red and White
Good Morning, hope the sun is shining for you, and a BIG HELLO to a lovely new follower Vicky thank you for joining us.
We have another challenge for you at Teddy Stampers.
It's St Georges Day on the 23rd April here in the UK, so the theme is St George or red and white.
We'd love you to join in the fun.
Don't forget your creation must have a stamped or digi Teddy on it.
Our sponsor this week is the Cutting Cafe.
I'm also entering the Rosie D's challenge which is red and white
I chose to do a gate fold for my DT card. It's not quite an A6 just a bit shorter.
The gorgeous teddies inside are by Stampavie Penny Johnson 'Bubbly Bears'.
I thought I would have a change and coloured them with chalk, then sprayed it with perfix colourless fixative for pastels.
The sentiment and heart stamps come from the Forever Friends 'going to the chapel' clear stamp set.
A little bit of stardust stickles for the bubbles and glaze on their noses.
I cut 4 1/8" off the length of A4 cardstock and scored it at 3 1/4" from both ends. The overlap allows the red to be seen through the trellis hearts. The scoring was made much easier with my new Martha Stewart scoring board, absolutely amazing, from Joanna Sheen. I did intend to get a score pal but heard this was good. The score lines are nice and narrow, just go a bit slower scoring.
The red card is from the papermill which I embossed with a Cuttlebug roses folder.
I used a rub on greeting and the word punch from Stampin' Up from Victoria.
Rose from Wild Orchid Crafts ribbon and charm from stash.
