Morning! It's time for another Inspiration Challenge on the UDI blog. Today's picture is just too cute. I went with the teddy bear and the picnic theme. I am really pleased with the final result.
I stamped the bear from Cute & Cuddly on Whisper White in Timber Brown stazon (retired) and colored him in with Creamy Caramel and a blender pen. Of course, the blender pen cap rolled off my desk and disappeared. It's a good thing I have lots of them. (I'm sure my dog will find it for me.) I decided to do something fun for his tummy, muzzle and ears. I am scissor-challenged, but I was brave! I made a piece of Faux Suede with Creamy Caramel cardstock. Then I stamped the bear again and cut out all the parts. Aren't you proud of me? LOL I recreated the picnic blanket by rubbing my Real Red ink pad over the Squares Texturz plate and then running it through the Big Shot with a piece of Whisper White. I love it! I sponged the edges of the image panel and the 2 Kraft pieces with Creamy Caramel before adhering them all together. I finished off the card with a piece of 1/4" Real Red grosgrain. The bow turned out great, don't you think?! I used Snail to adhere the long piece. Then I took another piece and used the bunny ears technique for the bow. I threaded it under the already attached piece before looping the ribbon. That way it's actually tied on the card. :)
Can you tell I'm really happy with this card?! ;) Please leave me a comment and let me know if you like it, too! Then head on over to the UDI blog and see what everyone else did with today's picture!
