Sending Love...

Hello friends near and far, it's a beautiful spring day here in the mountains of Pennsylvania and I have a sun-shiney happy card to share with you all. I wanted to try something new and fun that was all about the pretty papers and an adorable bear! I had this idea to paper piece a big sun with the rays, but it turns out, someone had already had that idea! LOL, I always Google things when I have an idea that I think is new, and it's a good thing I did, because there was the perfect tutorial for it already. Grab the PDF template here if you'd like to try it too.

So I cut out all the sections of the sun's rays from Picadilly papers, very bright and colorful! Super easy, and there's not much else I need to do to spruce up this card. 

The little bear 'Patchwork Bunch of Balloons' was colored with Copics, then cut out completely. I stamped the bear onto the background first, before gluing down the bear and balloons, so all the little fuzzy details wouldn't be lost.

I added a little sentiment banner across the bottom and call the card done! The sentiment is from the new clear set, 'Handwritten Phrases'. I love having a ton of sentiment stamps, so I am never at a loss when I need that perfect card for a certain someone.

Hope you like it, this was a fun card, you should try it! Thanks for visiting!

  7. wow and wow.... What a great idea to display the patterned papers like that creating a brilliant effect but I also love the idea of stamping the bear before sticking him down to keep those little furry details..
