Button Bear comes to Teapot Tuesday

No, it isn't Tuesday, but I didn't get a chance to post this card on Tuesday, so here it is today.  If you're not familiar with Teapot Tuesday, you can find out about it HERE

This week our cards are going to the sister-in-law of one of the Teapotters and also a very dear friend of mine, Soni.  Soni's SIL is going through some major health issues but through it all she keeps her faith and a has a good spirit about her.  MaryLou loves Teddy bears and the colors blue and purple.  If you'd like to join in and find out more about MaryLou and the Destination Station for this week, click HERE!

My card that I'm sending off to MaryLou is this one created with an old retired, but well loved Stampin Up stamp set.
Do you remember Button Bear?  It's one of those stamp sets that you just never can part with.
Materials Used:
  • Images - Bear, hat, teapot, teacup, butterflies, and sentiment all from Stampin Up Button Bear set
  • Ink - Memento Black
  • Cardstock - Stampin Up: Bashful Blue, Orchid Opulence, and Pear Pizazz; Xpress It Blending Card.
  • Design Paper - Basic Gray Kioshi
  • Flowers - My Favorite Things - Mini Rolled Roses Die; 
  • Leaves - Spellbinders Shapeabilities - Little Leaf Set
  • Stampin Up - scallop border edge punch
  • Copic Markers - B0000, B21, B32, B41, B95; E41, E43, E44, E55, G12, G21, G24; V20, V22, V25; T3; YR20, YR23, YR24.
I almost forgot to mention that I actually hand made those flowers using the MFT Mini Rolled Roses Dies.  One of the blog groups that I belong to - Stamp Addicts - has a challenge to make a use a hand made flower on a project.  It was a job rolling those up so they didn't slip out and unroll, but once I get the hang of it, I'll be able to make a lot of my own flowers.  I have some other flower dies that I want to use also.
