It's our Birthday Blog Hop # Teddy Stampers

Good morning crafty friends,

It's time to celebrate Teddy Stampers is turning ONE! whoohoo!!!
We've been stamping with our teddies for a year and want to celebrate with you, by having a
                                                BIRTHDAY BASH!

Please come and join us today for a blog hop as the Teddy Stampers design team share ways to say
                                               HAPPY BIRTHDAY !!!!!

We hope our creations will inspire you to create a birthday project or two of your own.
There are lots of prizes to give away this week so if you want to win you need to participate!

Here's how it works, from the Teddy Stampers blog... hop around to each of the designers blogs   and              LEAVE A COMMENT on each blog... we're not a large team so it won't take you long.
Then hop back to Teddy Stampers and upload a BIRTHDAY CREATION of your own, don't forget you must have a stamped or digi stamp teddy on your project.

You must complete ALL these steps in order to be eligible for a prize.

It would be brilliant if you would like to become a follower but it's not a requirement on my blog... to be in with a chance of  winning my prize.
We have some brilliant sponsors taking part:

That's a lot of chances to win! Plus some of our fabulous team have a prize up for grabs for one lucky hopper too!!!
Here's my prize

That's right not one...not two... not three... but FOUR GORGEOUS BEAR STAMPS from Lili of the Valley.

If you've joined me from ANGELIQUE then you're on the right path if not hop over to the Teddy Stampers blog and start from the begining from me you need to hop to

Here's my DT creation

The base card is a die cut scallop concertina step card only available from Whichcraftuk
 Gorgeous Popcorn Bear from the Party Time... Smile... and Birthday Hugs stamp sets.
Popcorn was lying on a parcel which I cut away to use on the gift box and I also cut away the little duck.
All coloured with copics some of the colours I used:
bear E30 31 33 R20  ducks YR12 YR21 Y00 Y21 parcels and balloons G00 G21 Y00 BG93 YR02 YR04 YR21 Y11 YR07 YG11 YG24 R20 R22
DP is Kioshi by Basicgrey
I used sakura stardust pens to add glitter
Sentiment is from Stampin' Up

Other challenge to have fun with:
Pile it on ~ Beary good friends use a bear with a friend
ABC challenge ~ G is for glitter... it is there
Crafty Sentiments ~ make a gift
Cupcake insirations ~ photo i've used the colours
Paperplay Playtime  ~ Use a clock, ticket or tag

The lovely Jerusha asked us if we'd like to do a tutorial for the hop well i've had a go... hope it's ok it's my first one!!!!!
Tutorial for the gift box...

I forgot to mention score on the lines 1/2"  4"  5 3/8" and 8 7/8"

Sorry to all those who work in metric. It's just so much easier to use the Martha Stewart board, for projects like this.
At a later date I hope to start a separate tutorial section but for now it'll have to stay on the post.
Hope i've made it clear enough any questions please feel free to leave a comment and i'll edit it in.

So come on join the fun you might be one of the lucky prize winners.
Have a fun weekend and

love cherie      //*.*\\
