I’m using one of the newer designs from The Paper Shelter for my card today and it’s called ‘My Steam Punk Teddy Bear’.

My image was printed onto Cryogen White cardstock and coloured with the following Copic Markers.

My image has been cut out an layered using Spellbinders Label Twenty-Eight dies and my card shape is a Go Kreate die. I’ve added a Tim Holtz Alterations On The Edge die called ‘Distressed Doily’ to the top and some Sizzix ‘Heart Cog’ thinliits. My sentiment is from LOTV and has been punched out and layered with Stampin’ Up 1 3/4” & 2” Circle Punches. The papers I have used are from Carta Bella and are from their Giddy Up! collection.

I’ve decided to make a Summer Holiday card today as I’m longing for the warmer weather to come back although it’s still a few months away.

I’m dreaming of a day like this….

Not that I’d be in a bikini but laying back in some swimmers drinking a cocktail reminds me of our trips to Fiji a few years ago.

I’ve printed my image onto Cryogen white cardstock and coloured with Copic Markers.

The colours I’ve used are: Skin – E11, E21, E00, E000, E0000, R20 & R30; Hair – E55, E53, E51; Bikini & Flowers – BG18, BG15, BG13, BG11; Towel & trim – Y17, Y15, Y13, Y11; Hat – W5, W3, W1, W00.

I fussy cut the image and mounted onto a Large Petra Die from Marianne Designs.

My base card has been cut from a Go Kreate Die and layered with some pretty papers by Fancy Pants Designs.

The sentiment is from Magnolia’s Summer Breeze Collection and I’ve added a few of the new Doohickey Club Dies.

Here’s a closer look at the image…

Stamps: Summer Holiday(The Paper Shelter), It’s Summer Time (Magnolia)
Card: Naturals White (Stampin’ Up), Cryogen White, Paper – Fountain (Fancy Pants Desgins)
