BEST WISHES - CREATIVE STAMPING ISSUE 50

Hello and thanks for stopping by....

A cute card made with elements from Creative Stamping Magazine  Issue 50

I don't make a lot of 'this type' of card, but, they are  cute and it is good to have some in your stock for that 'just in case I need a card' moment.  Our crafty friends across the pond tend to make these 'cute' cards more so

Instead of stamping the bear onto white card I chose to use a pale 'mottled' blue paper and stamped it and the best wishes with a  Versafine Onyx Black Ink Pad

Before I did any stamping I used my EK anti-static tool over all the paper then stamped the Happy Birthday around the edges

I the used one of the jumpers from the gift set and stamped it onto the bear.  I used two Distress Markers, 'mowed lawn' and 'worn lipstick' to colours some of the circles on the sweater and just the 'worn lipstick' on the ears and feet

I did cover the face, paws and the little bit of the body that's visible with Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle Texture Paste in 'Polar White' but it didn't show too well so I added Flower Soft in white on top of it and I do like the finished result

I also stamped one corner of the envelope, as you can see above and used the same stamp for inside the card as well as the corner star stamp and the birthday parcel 




There are over 30 stamps with this magazine and, of course, there are plenty of ideas for your own card makes plus competitions and information regarding new products 
Until tomorrow
