Summertime Cards


Hey There Crafty Friends!

Seems like forever since I posted.  My daughter had a week off so we took advantage of the time and did almost a week's worth of mother/daughter things - lunches,dinners, shopping, 
and a weekend at Lake Tahoe!

But, I'm back in the craft room and have two new projects for you today.
Both of them use files from Paper Crafting World.

My first card uses a cut file called Brain Freeze Bear with Popsicle.  The file is sized to be a page layout and includes a title.  I resized it on my Pazzles to created this fun summer card.  I chose to use patterned paper for the bear.  I think it turned out really cute.  The background papers are from Authentique - I LOVE that paper line!

I usually ink the pieces from the cut file, but since I used patterned paper I decided to use foam squares to add dimension.

I'm going to enter this card in the following challenges:
A.R.T. "Anything Goes"
Crafty Ribbons "Anything Goes with Ribbon"
Crafts 4 Eternity "Anything Goes"
Cut it Up"Celebrate Summer"
Crazy 4 Challenges "Picnic"

Next, I used a Paper Crafting World digital printable to create this card.
The PCW digi used is Bear Sodadightul - girl.
I used Spellbinders Labels 3 for the matting and My Craft Spot Tiny Banners dies for the pennants.  The paper is from the Carta Bella Giddy Up line.  I got the lace ribbon from "Peachy Cheap."  The bear is colored with Copic Markers and highlighted with atYou Spica glitter pens.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
4 Crafty Chicks "Pennants"
C.R.A.F.T Challenge "For the Girls
Totally Papercrafts "Use Lace"
