In for Just a Minute

I only have a minute today. Don't know how I ever worked or raised children.... Way too much to do... Two cards and four challenges. Let's get right to it.

My first card will go into City Crafter Challenge and into A Blog Named Hero. My second card will go into SSS Wednesday Challenge and a new-to-me place to play, Share the Joy Challenge.

I've got some NBUS going on here:


I picked up this new HA stamp and die set designed by Lia Griffith (the bear & cap & sentiment) comes with more, which I'll use later... LOTS of dies here in this little scene. AE frame, LF 'hills,' and trees, HA bear and hat. Cuttlebug ef. LF tree stamps. Copics to color them. HA sentiment. Michaels white, red scrap. Funish.

The next card also uses multiple dies, including a NBUS TE HB banner die, which I've fallen madly in love with. My tic-tac-toe goes down the right side.


Scrap of bright pink on Michaels white base, polka dot scrap cut with ME scalloped die, scrap of teal cut with MFT die, TE HB die (love them!!). Stamped, colored with Copics, and fussy cut three SSS balloons and added some clear Stickles. When dry, I added some black thread and adhered them to the card. Three clear sequins, though they look blue... Birthday, check. Balloons, check. Glitter, check. Dies, check. Gotta run, check. Happy dances everyone.

How can a polar bear be so cute, I know it's because he's wearing a beanie lol. More great cards Bev!

Both cards are lovely, though I think that bear notched up the cute factor, don't you? I'm so glad you joined the City Crafter Challenge this week.

Just too darn cute. I love that sweet polar bear card, so fun. I hope you are going well, miss you lots and Go Cubbies!

I seriously placed this stamp/die set into my SSS basket about 1/2 hour ago! I will be hitting the 'place order' button ASAP now that I see how sweet they are in for real life! Beyond cute! Don't you just love the font?

Polkie dot paper, sparkles, bling and banners = one fun and festive card! I love the blue background - great contrast with the balloons and banners!

Ros Crawford said...

So cute!! Love that little bear with his winter hat! Thanks so much for playing along at CCCB!!

Tee hee...your toque-sporting polar bear has me in giggles! Cutie-patootie! Wouldn't it be awesome if they all wore toques, scarves and mittens...that would exponentially minimize my bear-terror! Fabulous winter scene - and the polkie-dots just add to the fun! Card #2's banner and floaty balloons: celebration happening all over that panel! Smiling and giggling...I'm going to check out that bear stamp!
Hugs~c

Bobby said...

Darling little polar bear scene, Bev, and I can see why you love that HB banner die. It makes the card so festive.

Kylie said...

You know that I am more than partial to a little scene and your polar bear card just makes me sooo happy. It is gorgeous!

The birthday card just screams happppppy!! The colours, the banner and the balloon - who wouldn't have a fun day after receiving such a card!
