Birthday Card – Cupcake Bears

Hi There,

Back again to share a Birthday card that I made for my wonderful mom! She loves bears and baking so I thought this would be a great card to make for her.

The bear pattern is from Too Cute By Jessica – Cupcake Bears. Original Artwork from Marjorie Ann Designs.



Here is a closer look.



I love the balloon pattern paper. Not sure who it is by as I picked it up at our local dollar store.

I used the stitched dies from “My Creative Time – Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies and More” to cut out the main background and purple patterned background.

Used “Craftin Desert Diva’s – Fancy Frames” for the darker fancy border.

For the sentiment I used from the Cricut Cartridge – Birthday Cakes- Happy Birthday
I used Dove Blender pen and pink chalk to create the lines on the cupcake wrapper.
Went around bears with Dew Drop Memento – Rich Cocoa to give the bears some dimension.
For the eyes, cheeks and bow, I used Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen.
Hope you like it!

Chinese New Year 2016

Back to share my cards for Chinese New Year 2016.

I know I’m running a little late. I’m glad it goes for a whole month. LOL!

Used 2 types of paper for the fronts. The mirrored gold paper, unfortunately shows everything. But I still liked it.

Using Cricut Design space, I uploaded Marjorie Ann Designs \ Kristi w. Designs – Gone Bananas. All of the monkeys are from this pattern.

I created the type with Cricut Font – 3 Birds – Life’s a Party Cartridge.

I thought the little monkey face would go great in place of the “o” and the other little monkey replacing the “0” in 2016.

For the eyes, I used Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen.

For the inside, I brought the wording into Microsoft Word and then pasted it 10 times on the paper before printing it out.

Then I used the cutting die from My Creative Time – Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies and More to frame the sentiment.

Lastly, I went around each frame with Sharpie – Medium Point Gold Water based paint.

I make 8 cards in total. There were a lot of little pieces and it took a long time, but I’m very happy on how they turned out.

Hope you are too!
