Baby Gems

...no not lettuces, Pink Gem teddies as baby cards!

Today's post features another couple of pre-coloured images made up into baby cards...you guessed it...to sell in my card box for Cancer Research UK.  Over the last couple of weeks my card box has being doing the rounds, and to date it has raises £29, but it's still nice and full, (cause I keep topping it up) so hopefully it will raise far more in the weeks to come.



Sorry, picture quality isn't great - can't seem to get the right amount of light onto my cards despite them being in the window!


Papers this time are old favourite 12 x 12 Craft Creation sheets and the sentiments LOTV and computer generated.

Challenges;
A Gem of A Challenge - Teddy Bears
SSW2 - Sketch 87

The Ribbon Girl - Any Image
Crafty Catz - Monochrome

These will be snapped up super quick for sure..they are lovely. I dare you to try heat embossed stamping...it's really easy, heat powder on a die cut shape,then immediately tip more powder on and reheat, then before a final layer ink up your stamp, either clear embossing ink or black for more definition, heat the powder (now quite liquid) turn off the heat tool and stamp straight away into the molten powder. I promise you its so satisfying!! I find that better quality stamps work best, freebies tend not to leave a good impression. If you miss the spot, reheat, re-ink and try again!! xx
