Teddy Bear Repair Shop Now Open!


I'm popping in late tonight to share a card I made over the weekend using one my my much neglected Pure Innocence stamps. It was just begging to be used and really who could resist?! :)

I used the Better Get Better set and some dreamy cloud paper from My Mind's Eye. I also used a sweet die from Taylored Expressions - it reminds me of a big puffy cloud. Perfect!

The little girl was stamped on white cardstock, colored with Copic markers and cut out. I diecut the next layer using the die, sponged the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink and then added some dots of White Opal Liquid Pearls. For the next layer I used a piece of Dotted Swiss Bazzill cardstock from the Mud Puddle Trio. I LOVE this cardstock. So much so, that I had to order more colors of it (from Taylored Expressions). I matted this layer and the cloud designer paper on Blue Bayou cardstock and stitched the edges. To finish the card I added a bit of satin ribbon, twine and a few brown brads.
