Bear-y Cute Bear-thday

I'm BACCCCKKKK! I have my NEW stamp room all in order, and ready for business. We spent most of Saturday finishing up both my room, and the new arts and crafts room for my daughters. They are just thrilled to have their own space to trash...I mean...craft. It helped clear up some space on my counters and cupboards by taking all their stuff downstairs too. Well today I was able to work on a couple projects...well finish them. I started them yesterday, but ran out of time to finish. I made 2 cards today, for 2 different challenges. Here is the first one.
I made this card for this weeks Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge. It is contest week too! Here is what I came up with.
I used the bears from one TAC's new Serendipity sets (BOUNTIFUL BEARS). The sentiment is from a separate set, but was created to go with this set (T3246 Beary Much). There are some really cute "bear" sentiments in the set. I paper pieced the bow tie using some PP from TAC. I sponged around the scalloped square too. I added a flower, and brad, which I made with my I-top, using the same PP. My 2nd card today I made for this weeks Cupcake Craft Challenge. The challenge this week is Four Legged & Furry, so here is what I came up with.
This card is not smaller then my normal 1/2 sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 cards, but I thought it would be fun to try something different. I stamped and embossed the little kitty in silver, which is my furry four legged friend for this card. Then I colored it using ink pads and aqua painters. I punched him out with a scalloped square, then layered onto a solid purple CS square. I ran the base through the cuttlebug, then used 4 different shade of purple ink and stippled the background. I added some twill ribbon, and a brad. Last, I stamped the sentiment onto the ribbon using staz-on ink.
Well that is all for now. Thanks for stopping by.
