:~Introducing Teddy Bea:~

A very late post for today but it's been a busy one. As you may notice we have a new banner at the top of the blog announcing the launch of our Teddy Bo site. There are lots of things planned for the site and in preparation for the opening our Creative Director Tammy (Kizzy Designs) has been busy making cards and we wanted you to see the first one.

We've lifted a lot of Tammy's own blog post from today, we hope you enjoy reading it and looking at her card.

"Teddy Bea, is my new friend and gosh she's been up to so much and I have only known her for a's hoping it rubs off on to me, cus I so need her energy!
This is a preview of Bea as she won't be launched until 11th of January. What do you think of her? Isn't she just the cutest bear you have ever seen?

Teddy Bea, will have her own site and be sold as a digital stamp. At the moment we are after some feed back from you girls and some ideas on how you would like Bea to look on her travels in Blogland. You are the card makers and very talented too, so your inspiration is needed for her launch. Would any of you like her to be sold as a coloured image too. I know some crafters do struggle with colouring and getting the shadows right. Your feed back is well needed. Oh - we are also after some Design Team Members if you are interested and have the time to make a couple of cards a month, do get in touch with me asap. There will be lots of challenges on Bea's site too...with some great prizes. Also every now and then we will pick a card from all participants and they will win some candy - how exciting is that?

Ok - a little about my card. Bea is getting ready for Valentines....her card is written and waiting to be sent to her loved one Bo. I have used NitWit Collections for my papers. Gosh, they printed off just perfect. Though I did only print at TEXT cus I didn't want them too dark. The collection is called Quilty Pleasures
The back of my card. Card size is 7" x 7". Used Marianne Designs die-cuts for the swirls and Spellbinders too. Flowers are all from the wonderful WildOrchid Crafts - link is on my side bar.
Organza ribbon is thread through the heart and tied in to a bow.

Side view of finished card.
Coloured Bea with pro-markers..............warm greys/tan/sandstone/sunkissed pink/putty.
Now as she is a digital stamp, I created the shadow around her on the computer...which I think gives a really good finish. Added punched leafs and gems to finish off.

Do think about Bea's and where you want her to go and what you wish her to do or wear. If you would like to be on the design team - give me a SHOUT. Your feed-back is very important.
Loads of Love

We hope that you enjoyed reading Tammy's blog and we invite you to visit her blog to view her absolutely gorgeous cards as she is a wonderful artist.

I do love the bear, and Tammy's card is gorgeous. Wish I knew how to play with the digital programs that give you all the freedom to create! I think she'd be cute in Norway or Ireland, wearing one of their beautiful sweaters.

FairyD said...

Hi 'Luvthatstampin' to be honest you don't need digital programs to play....with digital stamps you can use desktop publishing (Word) programs to print out and then use them in exactly the same way you would as if you'd stamped them yourself.

I agree...jumpers would look cute...especially if they were too big for them!??! Another idea, thanks. ;o)
