...and a diamond top card:
I just love this little guy, ever hopeful that his magic will bring his Teddy to life maybe - although I think our Teddies do have life in them anyhow. The stamp is from LOTV (called Abracadabra - what else!), coloured with Pro Markers and a little bit of gold Stickles added to the stars and the gold book corners. I coloured the background with mauve Pebbles Pearlescent chalk - hoping it looks a bit like 'magic mist' :) Die cut with a Nestie and layered onto a diamond top style card. There's a good tutorial here if you want to have a try at a diamond top - the hardest bit is being brave enough to fold it once all the score marks are done.
Background papers are from a Papermania Rich Purple pack, the self-adhesive ribbon is Anita's and the little gold holographic peel off stars came from my Christmas stash. The sentiment is from a LOTV set, stamped and die cut.
That's it from me today - I'm going round to a friend's this afternoon with my Cuttlebug to let her have a go at some embossing. Dontcha love getting people excited about new gizmos they haven't tried before. Last week she had a go at die cutting (terrified of the 'bendy B plate' on top). So today I'm being kinder and taking lots of embossing folders (she already has a shed load of card of her own) and the CB....with the flat/un-banana shaped B plate that I keep just for embossing.
Oh, and I might just take this blank card, with one already scored for her to play with. She almost passed out at the thought of tackling a teepee card like the one I posted here recently so let's see how this one goes down....evil little grin here :)
Edit: Ooh sheesh - I remembered I made this 'Magic' card with a really specific challenge in mind, not that I ever win but they are such fun - do think about it girls!:
The Totally Gorjuss challenge - which is 'all about boys'
I love this challenge, it's always good fun, so go and see :
Also, have just come home from my friend's, bearing some cute litle flower punches which she says she'll never use....plus some local Hampshire Honey...which keeps my beloved OH happy, after what was a long session 'playing at crafting' and converting her to the CB. I also took sticky tape rollers, glue pen, Pinflair stuff and a few other goodies so it was an all round 'I give you and you give me'. And whoop, whoop, - the diamond card was a hit with her so I left some scored ones to try out - next week is Martha Stewart punches, punch around the page et al. And we must have produced enough embossed card to sink a battleship! I need my pizza, a glass of wine (large please) and then a lie-down to recover - but it was great fun.
Have a great day/evening if you read the edited version!
