we've picked something really cute
'Teddies' so get all your teddy bear stamps out and get creating. The design team have made some really beautiful cards this week, they really are fab!

This week's Prize, supplied by Crafters Companion - are these 4 embossing powders, Colours: Holo Twinkle, White Twinkle, Gold Twinkle and Silver Twinkle. everyone who takes part in this week's challenge by (10pm Monday the 13th of October GMT) will be entered into a prize draw and 4 lucky peoples names will be picked at random winning one embossing powder each!
Good luck,

Kate, Fifi, Jo, Wendy, lesley and Becky


I coloured my teddies with Pro Markers and matted them onto Basic Grey paper, I added an Elzybells sentiment, some craft wire, flowers and brads.

I started by using dabbers on a piece of mountboard then I went round the edges with silver krylon though it doesn't show up very well. Then I stamped Linda Luckin's gorgeous teddy - my favourite stamp of all time. I then stamped the words with a versafine ink pad and rubbed around the edges with black. The edge of the dotty paper was punched with my stampin' up punch. I finished it off with bits and pieces I found lying around on my craft table!

I made a DL card base and covered it with green paper. I stamped a swirl in green ink to the top left corner and glued 'on MUM' chipboard letters. On separate card I stamped and coloured a Forever Friends teddy, cut him out and attached him to the base with silicone glue.

I covered the canvas in Vintage Photo Distress ink and some Copper dabber. I stamped my House Mouse image on a piece of card and watercoloured it in, then added it to the canvas with a phrase stamped image too. Finally I added some Primas and Stickled the centres and areas of the canvas too.

For my card I have use one of the first stamps I bought many moons ago - an Anita's Teddy stamp. I have coloured him with water colours andadded a gold satin ribbon bow. He is mounted 3D over a layered background of Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing. The bottom of the card
has a greeting stamped in the center and I have added some embossed lines to finish it off. Embellished with gold brads.
