Hi everyone. Work has kept me away from crafting and blogging for a few days but I’m back into my normal routine now.
I was thrilled to receive an email from Janet a little while ago asking if I would like to be a guest DT member for Pink Gem Designs; of course I bit her hand off! And then I received an email from Kimmi asking if I would stay as the Stampin for the Weekend guest designer for an extra week. So this is a Guest DT double whammy.
This gorgeous Teddy with Rose is perfect for a Valentine card so I’ve made this for my husband using the great sketch on this weeks SFTW challenge. I’ve used distress inks and twinkling H2O’s to colour the bear.
The ribbon, buttons and charm are all from my new shop – Truly Scrumptious Crafts which sells gorgeous embellishments for papercrafters. The paper is by Magenta and as the reverse was a bit plain I used and Inkadinkadoo flourish stamp and embossed in white. I love how Kim uses sparkle around her images so I tried it on this card. It doesn’t look as neat as Kim’s but I’m quite pleased with the effect.
Please pop over to the SFTW blog. The DT have made some amazing cards and there is a fabulous prize to be won too!
