Happy Teddy Bo Tuesday

Happy, Happy Teddy Bo Tuesday one and all....well...what a busy, busy week I've got on!!!!  My children are back at school on Wednesday....yeeeha, it's been a long 6 weeks...the weather isn't always that great in Scotland so it stops us from getting out and about!!  I'm also 'treading the boards' this week as I take part in "Bad Girls the Musical" in my local theatre........so the 'Greasepaint' is ready...the wig's been brushed and the lines have been learnt...fingers crossed everything will go well!!! lol  If you live near the G74 area of Scotland and you're looking for something to do on Saturday early evening (that's all we've got left ticket wise) then come along and have a good night out!!!! 

So, we still have our "Love is in the Air" challenge on at the moment...and the entries so far have been absolutely wonderful....remember, you can enter more than once...so don't just stop at one!!!


Our first tangible product features in the store this week.....our very first paper pack in pinks, blue and lights...xxxx  Our stamps are soon to follow.....oooooh, how exciting!!!

So, what's in the store this week!!?!?!

Some more of our 'scratchies' (which the design team love..just incase you can't tell!??!lol)

Remember the sale's still on until Sunday 21st August at midnight (UK time)


As always our Design Team have made some absolutely WONDERFUL cards.......I hope you enjoy looking at them...xx

I have used the new "Scratchy" Bo! Isn't he just adorable!
I love him ~ playing with his new trainset for Christmas.
The papers are From Authentique and all the brass
pieces are from my stash. I have distressed the whole card
with some vintage distress ink.

Papers from Rasberry road.
Cute lovecouple coloured with copics
Not much embellishments, only seambinding from WOC, pearls and some metal from stash.
Distressed around the image.

I want to show the sweet Bea Snowflake Flight tomorrow on my blog.

Used punching: Marianne Stanze Designer Doily LR 0130 and
Marianne Creatables swedish Snowflakes

I've found a great workshop on Tina's blog to tinker a storybook box:

On the front Rapunzel Bea
and here from the inside
I've used:
Stamp: Rapunzel Bea
Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
Paper from hobby-Paleis

I have used a digi kit from Raspberry Road called "For the Record"
I've tried out my new Flexmarkers from Promarker that my Dad got me for my birthday. I think its gonna be a long hard process to get the hang of them, they are so light to use! Bea and the cat are coloured in Promarkers. I've even managed to do the inside wooo hooo!!!

Here is my card for Teddy Bo Tuesday.  I have used TeddyBea_131 and coloured her with Prismacolor Pencils. The papers are Docrafts, I think LOL, the flowers are mainly Wild Orchid Crafts and Creative Treasures. The rest of the embellies are from stash.

Hope that you all have a fabulous week :o)

Here comes my card for today, and I´ve chosen the unusual color combo purple/brown. At least it is very unusual for me ;0) . I'm curious how you find it.

I´ve chosen one of the adorable new scratchy bears for my card, and I have colored the image with Prismacolor pencils. The primary colors for my card are purple and brown. The pattern paper is from Maja Design. The edges of the papers I´ve treated with the paperdistresser. The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley and I´ve decorated with punched hearts.

I´ve used an older image of Bea and Bo. It´s a part of *Day dreaming duo*. I´ve colored the images with Prismacolor pencils. The primary colors for my card are light blue and red. The pattern paper is from Creative Memories. I´ve decorated only with punched hearts in three different sizes.
Today I´ve made a card with the new image *Steal a Kiss*. I have colored the sweet couple with Prismacolor pencils. I made this card in my favorite color combo pink and brown. The pattern paper is by Bo Bunny.

I hope you like my card

Here is my card for Teddybo Tuesday.

I've used My Mind's Eye 'A Beautiful Life' papers but this card doesn't show them to best advantage because though I only received them yesterday morning the pad is decimated! I had some cards to do for my daughter's workplace. They like to have a stash of Welcome cards for new members of staff so they don't have to be spectacular or complicated. I managed to dash off half a dozen using these papers and I know I'm going to get some more - they are lush! The only problem was that I wanted to use both sides of each sheet so no second sheets left to play with.

I've used Teddy and Bea 045 for the card and coloured the image with Prisma pencils. The die cut edge on the panel is from a Tim Holtz edger die and the swirls are medium Sizzix dies. The flowers are Nellie's choice embossing punched ones. :)

I love these new images and had to have a play.

Gone back to my fave colours and coloured her
with polychromos pencils.
The papers are from forever friends paper pad
Flowers are from wild orchid.
Dies are a  mixture of spellbinders and Marianne creatables.
Sentiment is from Lili of the valley.
Lace and pearl gems from stash.

I used Sledging Cuddles - coloured in Photoshop, which I also used to make the background, the swirly trees are a freebie brush that I picked up on my travels around blog land a long time ago, mounted onto silver card, corners punched with a photo corner punch. Paper is from The Clipart fairy, ribbon and lace from stash, and jingle bells from The Ribbon Girl. 


Coloured with Pro, Flex and Copic markers.
Papers are from Raspberry Road.
Handmade crochet flower added a brad.
Sentiment is computer generated.
I used a bit of scrap cream wool.

Catch you soon....Gayle x
