Sitting Bumble Bear Card

Today I am sharing a simple card made with the DS CK Sitting Bumble Bear file which can be found here:
I uploaded the image into Design Space and printed it on a 3 1/4 by 4 1/2 shaped mat from Cricut. I colored the image with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers. I mounted the finished image onto a slightly larger shaped mat cut from a yellow stripe cardstock.
The card base is a 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 inch yellow honeycomb print. A 3 3/4 by 5 inch brown mat was added to the base and a 1 1/4 by 4 1/4 inch embossed strip (embossing folder by Cuttlebug) was added across the center of the card. The image was mounted to the base using foam tape.
The sentiment is from Stampin Up and was stamped on a 2 1/2 inch tag from Sizzix. As a final touch, I added yellow gems and a silk flower.

    Hi! Today I'd like to share a single page layout using " CK Sunflower Peeker Bear" and "CK Sunflower Bear" from KaDoodleBug Designs. The files can be found here:


Blue dot and brown dot cardstock from Coredinations
Plain cardstock in yellow, tan, brown , dark brown, white & green
Sunflower Bear & Sunflower Peeker Bear from KBD
Daisy Card pattern from Bird's Cards

     I used the blue dot cardstock as the base of my layout. I added a 5 3/4 inch wide strip of the brown dot cardstock 3/8 inches up from the bottom.

     I made the flower mat by adapting a daisy card from Bird's Cards by enlarging it to 5 1/2 by 11 1/4 inches. I changed the flower colors to those pictured. The yellow mats are 3 5/8 by 4 7/8 inches.

     The Peeker Bear is 3 1/4 inches tall. He is peeking over the word "Bloom," which is from Cricut, and is cut at 2 by 7 1/4 inches from green cardstock. The Sunflower Bear was cut at 5 inches.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Basketball Samantha

Hi! I am very excited to announce that I have joined the Digital Delights by Louby Loo Design Team! I am so thrilled to be working with Wendy's adorable designs. Today I am posting my first project, a water bottle tag,
using "BasketballSamantha"
 and "SportsSentimentsSet."

Card Recipe

DD digi stamps used: Basketball Samantha & Sports Sentiments Set
Cardstock: core'dinations, image printed on Crafter's Companion     Spectrum Noir Bright White
Markers: Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers
Acc./Embellishments: 1/8 inch wide ribbon in blue & yellow
                                     1/4 inch star punch
                                     door hangar and tag from Cricut
                                     pop dots/foam tape
                                     star eyelets

I sized the hangar at 13 inches by 3 1/2 inches and scored it at 4 inches and 8 3/4 inches. Fold the bottom up to make the pocket for the flavor packet. I created the yellow mat by tracing the bottom flap and cutting it slightly smaller. Secure the pocket with star eyelets.

The image was printed at 5 inches and fussy cut after it was colored. It was added to the pocket front with pop dots. I added blue ribbon bows to the pigtails. The sentiment tag is 4 by 1 3/4 inches with the sentiment itself being 3 by 1 1/2 inches. I added another eyelet to the right side above the pocket and tied the tag on with blue and yellow ribbons.
