You Make Me Smile



Hi there blog friends,
I've been on the fence about entering the MFT Card Design Superstar Contest, so just before they close their doors, I've decided to submit this card for the CAS category:


This little guy is my favorite from the new Bitty Bears stamp set, and I thought (hoped, really) that he would work in place of the letter "O" in the die cut. I used the paisley stencil for the background and blended distress inks to create an ombre effect on the alphas.

Supplies: (All MFT products)
Stamps: Bitty Bears, All About You
Dies: Bitty Bears, All About You, Fishtail Sentiment Strip, Blueprints 25
Stencil: Bold Paisley
Inks: MFT - Black Hybrid; DI's - Carved Pumpkin, Mustard Seed; Hero Arts - Soft Vanilla; Versamark
Embossing Powder: Stampendous Detail White
Gems: Lucy's Cards - Clear Jewels

  
Thanks so much for stopping by,

Such a cute and clever card, Barb! Those wee bears are adorable and this one is my favorite too. Your card has so many gorgeous elements yet is still beautfiully CAS. I'm so glad you entered. All the very best, my friend!

What a cute idea and he fits perfectly as the "o". Love the soft background and the ombre on the letters. It is a great card.
