Colour challenge # Teddy Stampers

Good morning sweet friends and welcome to my lovely new followers, looking forward to sharing the journey together.

Many thanks too for  your creations for our last challenge they were all amazing, and so nice to visit you.

We at Teddy Stampers would like to invite you to join us for our new challenge ..... it's a colour combo


We would like to see these colours, and don't forget you need a stamped or digi stamp BEAR on your creation.

Our generous sponsor is Whiff of Joy

My DT card

I'm making cards at the moment for my grandaughters nursery, they're raising money to buy a new camera.

Isn't this a cute shape, when it's closed it fits in to a C6 or 16 1/2 x 11 1/2 cm envelope.
You can see how to make an  A5 version on Leann blog of Crafters Companion.
Although it does say you need 6 A5 pieces of card, you only use 4 and one to cut a square from.

A tip that might help is not to use thick card as it's quite springy to close, especially if matting and layering, light weight card stock is fine..

I've used digi papers again I'm really loving the papers from Pink Petticoat ( blossom and mocha plain ) and matched it beautifully with a paper from Popcorn Bear CD... floral.

The cute ted stamp is Penny Black 'snug' coloured with copics E30 31 YR21 and the background R000
W1 shadow

While visiting Cupcake Craft challenge I hopped over to Shelly she inspired me with her doodle borders well worth a visit, she has some gorgeous creations.

I embossed the front panels with a Cuttlebug border folder and added pearls Hobby House Crafts the ribbon was from Whichcraft uk it might not be on the site but you can order by phone.

The sentiment was written on the computer. I left the other oval empty for a personal message.

  10. What a fab card Cherie I haven't tried this style before - another one to go on my must have a try list!. Gorgeous little image, I must admit I tend to stay clear of animals and bears simply because I'm never sure on how to colour them and you colour them so beautifully. Take care, Ann-Marie xxx
