Bear Hugs - Make & Take

This was a make & take card I did with my March workshops using the Bear Hugs bundle.   Are you wondering where I got that dsp that was used for the bear's bow and skirt?  It comes from the It's My Party designer washi tape in the Occassions catalog.  That's right, you can use wash tape to cut out framelet images, all you have to do is put a strip of washi on some whisper white cardstock, stamp your image & then cut it out, easy peasy!  The trim on this card comes from the Baker's Twine combo pack that is part of the It's My Party Suite in the Occasions catalog.  You get two colour combos in the pack:  black/melon mambo and black/mint macaron ...and I love the black & ___ striped effect on this baker's twine!  I also used a bit of Wink of Stella on the skirt, bow & sentiment (love you, in the heart) on this project:)

Who says Watercolouring has to be rustic, glamming it up with Birthday Blooms & Glitter Ribbon

Toda's card is a re-take on the ones I posted yesterday, but this time I also painted the image with the Wink of Stella pen giving it some glitter and then finished it off with that gorgeous Pool Party glitter ribbon:)

Watercolouring with Birthday Blooms

 For today's cards I white embossed the large floral image from the Birthday Blooms stamp set onto watercolour paper and then coloured the image using an aquapainter and ink from several of SU's in pads in colours that coordinate with the Birthday Bouquet suite (although rather than watermelon wonder I went with pinks along with blushing bride).

More Birthday Bouquets & Birthday Blooms

I might have gotten a little bit carried away with the amount of dsp I used on the above cards, but who could blame me with how pretty the Birthday Bouqet dsp is?!
 I also used the Birthday Blooms stamp set which is so pretty and I luv the font too.
And I finished off with some more of that gorgeous Pool Party glitter ribbon & a Bow paper clip on each.

Pretty Papers... Birthday Bouquet DSP Notepad

 I think the Birthday Bouquet papers in the Occasions catty are some of the prettiest ever, so that's why I chose to use them when I made this little notepad for a friend:)  The notepad is set in to a piece of whisper white heavy cardstock that I've scored to wrap around and have a 1" lip at the top of the pad, then I affixed a piece of wintow sheet and decorated with a border of pool party and some flags I created with the Birthday Bouquet dsp and a few other pretties like a Bow paper clip with some of the gorgeous pool party glitter ribbon and a bit of blushing bride sequin trim:)

I wrapped it all in this kraft bag that I created flags on using the thinlets from the treatbag set.  The greeting comes from the Rose Wonder stamp set.
