Beary Best Friends

I hope you had a great weekend.  I know some are still enjoying today as a holiday! 

Late Night Stampers challenge this week is to take some inspiration from a fancy decorated cake!  I've always wondered if these cakes taste as good as they look!  I see colors of Rose Red, Pretty in Pink and So Saffron, along with diamonds, circles, stripes, monograms,and flowers.  These all remind me of a sweet little girl.

So, I pulled out Stampin' Up!'s Beary Best Friends stamp set and used it to come up with my Inspiration card.  I also used Mary Jo's sketch from last week since I didn't get to play along.


I started with a base of Rose Red cardstock and placed a piece of So Saffron cardstock over top.  I stamped the girl bear in Basic Brown on Whisper White.  I paper pieced her dress from Tea Party Designer Paper scrap.  I used my AquaPainter and markers to color her body in Creamy Caramel, her shoes in Pretty in Pink and Rose Red, the gift bag in So Saffron, Rose Red and Pretty in Pink.  The flower is Rose Red and Certainly Celery.  I layered this on Pretty in Pink that I used my new Pinking Hearts Border Punch along the top for a sweet little touch.

I added three flowers punched from the Trio Flower Punch and Rose Red, I added a So Saffron Mini Brad in the center of each.  Along the bottom, I cut some strips of So Saffron and Pretty in Pink, then placed them to look like stripes across the bottom.  I used the awesome 5/8 Pretty in Pink Satin Ribbon to hide the seam.  (I LOVE these new Satin Ribbons…see my Ribbon Share offer HERE if you want to get some of each color!) 

I think the card takes a LOT of it's inspiration from the cake…what do you see?

Lots to do this week…I'm in the midst of trying to organize my studio and clean some things out!  Plus need to work on some projects for Create with Connie and Julie and the Tour de Freaks Blog Tour this week!

I love how almost everything we see can become an inspiration for a project.  This is beautiful.  New blog design looks great too.
