Wow! What a busy weekend. We were on the go constantly, but what a fab time we had. It was Lana's birthday on Saturday and I wanted to share the cards that Hayley & I made for her.
She's used Fox & Friends for the monkey stamp. And what a great job of cutting them all out! I love the colours - inspired by the new Big Top DSP.
I found the idea for the bear on SCS. Isn't he cute? He was easy to make: I used the 1 3/4" circle punch for the body, the 1 1/4" for the head and tummy, 1" for the face, the large circles from the Owl Builder for the paws & ears, and the small circles for the eyes. I drew the claws, nose & eyes on with a black journalling marker. The paper is Big Top DSP and I've used it on the flag banner & the present. I hand cut the little flags because I don't have a punch that I was happy with to get the right shape. The present was made using the 1 1/4" square punch. Linen thread attached with brads is ideal for hanging the banner but it was a bit fiddly & I had to punch a hole in the whisper white cardstock first, then tie the bow in the thread and set the middle of it over the hole before pushing the brad through. I like the stripes embossing folder but did find that it cracks the white cardstock - odd because it's ok on coloured stock. Who knew? The stickers for the numbers and word "Bear" were in my stash - how lucky that I had the right colours!
Thanks for looking. I'll pop back tomorrow with a picture of the cake made by my friend Michelle.
