After working out with a friend at the gym and taking Sherlock to the dog park, I had most of the day home by myself to play in my craft room. I'm starting to collect polar bear stamps, since my daughter's future college mascot is a polar bear. I used the polar bear in Lawn Fawn Critters in the Snow to make a few cards for my polar bear card stash.
I created a background using a heart stamp from Into the Woods and used foam tape to adhere my fussy cut my polar bear right on top. I used my Copics to add a little shading to my bear. (still don't know what I'm doing there).
I have to say that this next card did not really come out as I saw it in my mind--a bit busy for my taste. But, I still think that my daughter will enjoy receiving it in the mail. Another polar bear card for my stash.
I am entering both of these cards at Lawnscaping #98 where the challenge is to create a background with stamps and Simon Says Monday Winter Stamping. I am also entering the first card at Simon Says Wednesday Have a Heart and Addicted to Stamps #128: Holiday--my holiday is Valentines Day.
I started playing around with WPlus9 Quilt Prints, trying variations of colors and patterns with the colors and sketch from The Challenge #23. I decided I liked all my variations--so I added a variety of Get Well type sentiments, some subtle textures, and now I have 4 more get well cards for my stash.
