Hi there! A regular client of mine recently asked me to make some thank you cards as a gift for her friend who is expecting a baby boy. She figures it's something the new mum will need but have no time to go shopping for. :) She said they could all be the same design but I'm going to try and make a few different ones. My first design was inspired by this week's CAS(E) Study challenge - another gorgeous design by Donna Mikasa. I stamped and embossed the Hero Arts teddy bear onto the card base. Then I used the negative of one of Papertrey Ink's Half and Half dies and sponged it with Tumbled Glass and Peacock Feather Distress Inks. Finally I added a sentiment, some gems and voila! Because the this is the first time I used the teddy bear stamp (and the sentiment stamp) I'm going to enter this into the New Year, New Stash challenge at A Blog Named Hero.
Cardstock: (White) Bazzill
Stamp: (Bear from New Baby) Hero Arts, (Sentiment from Many Thanks) Paper Smooches
Inks: (VersaMark) Tsukineko, (Smokey Slate) Stampin' Up, (Tubled Glass, Peacock Feather Distress Inks) Ranger
Embossing Powder: (Clear) Ranger
Die: (Half and Half collection) Papertrey Ink
super cute Jen!!! ♥
Great idea, Jen. I'm sure the new mom will love them.
Jen, this is just SO adorable! What a clever and unique take on Donna's amazing inspiration card...I will definitely be CASEing this one!
Love how you have sponged the panel and embossed the teddy, what a great card Jen!
This is adorable, and your inking kicks it all up a notch.
*dies of cute*
The inking is simply genius - love how it adds so much without overwhelming the card!
beautiful card! love your take on the inspiration!
What a great take on Donna's inspiration card. The sponged panel highlighting the bear is gorgeous. :)
Looks like you'll be doing some online shopping. Congrats on the win!
