Meet Fizzy Moon

Hello blog friends,

A cute card to share today featuring the adorable Fizzy Moon bear peeping from behind a table filled with flowers. When I saw this adorable bear stamp in the craft shop I decided he is going home with me. For a change I did not use designer paper but made an embossed background with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and further embellished the card with Marianne Design die cuts, pearls and some Prima flowers I had for ages in my stash. So I had a little fun working with the dies, punches and embossing folders. Hope you enjoy the card as much as I did making it.

In the Garden

Hello everyone,

Today is a very cold day – windy and overcast but just perfect for making cards. Visiting all my favorite blogs to see where the card can fit in, I enter my card for the following challenges:

For Fun Challenges – Masking Technique

Penny Black Saturday Challenge #103 – In the Garden

Stamp Something – Birthday Recipe (designer paper, ribbon, bow and tag)

The challenge this week at For Fun Challenge is the masking technique. I did this technique years ago and this was the chance to polish up on one’s skills on this technique. I decided on 3 stamps to build the picture for this card:

Penny Black Slapstick stamp 40-019 Garden visit

Best Rubber Stamps (BRS – South Africa) 1060-17 Large Daisy

Great Impressions (South Africa) D578 Small Daisy

I also used white and yellow cardstock and Fancy Pants designer paper (USA) “Pool Party”. I coloured the image with Twinkling H2O”s and Derwent Inktense watercolour pencils. To enter the card in the Stamp Something Challenge I added a yellow ribbon, a bow and a small tag.  

and here is my card using the masking technique:


Thanks for visiting my blog and looking at my card. Hope you like it.
