Bear Hugs

Karen N here from Craftily Yours!  About once a month, I do a crafter-lunch at work.  I manage quite a few staff members, and many of them share my love for crafting.  As a treat, I design a card and bring in all the goodies, so we create a card together!

Here is the card I made:


I used two fun 3 Girl JAM crinkle ribbon colors in my card.  The first is from the Ribbon Candy Bundle; the second is from the Sunny Meadows Bundle.  That adorable bear is from Oak Tree Stamps.  (You can save 30% off your entire purchase there with code KN30!)   I colored his ears, nose, tummy and bear toes with Copic markers.  The paper is from MME. The frame around the bear is a Spellbinders die.

By the way, have you joined our 3 Girl JAM Challenge.  Anything goes with ribbon! Do you simply need some 3 Girl JAM goodies, be sure to use code KN10 at the 3 Girl JAM store for a cool 10% off!

Craftily yours,

Karen

Bridal Shower

I'm up over at the Oak Tree Stamps blog today!  This month, I have the honor of featuring the Oak Tree Stamps, Now and Forever, stamp set.  This stamp is so fabulously cute and SO much fun to color!

I decided to make a card that would be PERFECT for a bridal shower.  This little gal is SO cute!


She is colored with the following Copic Markers:
Skin: E000, E01, E11, R21, BV20
Hair: E13, Y21, YR24
Flowers:  R20, R21, YG63
Eyes: C7, B00, B12
Dress: C1

I used the gorgeous Heartfelt Creations Birds and Blooms Paper.  I stamped and die-cut the flowers from Heartfelt Creations Delightful Daisies and then shaped them with the Heartfelt Creations Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.  The centers of the flowers are US Artquest Prills.  The bottom borders are done with Elizabeth Craft Designs Agatha Edges.  I finished it off with some Timeless Twine in Olive Green.

Thanks so MUCH for stopping by today!  Please go check out Oak Tree Stamps!  Buy something and save a whopping 30% off your order with code KN30!!  Also, stop and LIKE the Oak Tree Stamps Facebook Page for more fabulous inspiration!
