Furry Teddy Bear


Hello everyone, welcome to my first post at Scrapping Cottage blog using CottageCutz Dies. Vladka here and I decided to start with this cute Furry Teddy Bear, which reminded me on Valentine’s Day and on a new born baby at the same time. This is the reason that I made two cards, one for each occasion. Recipe for both cards is very simple:  Kraft paper + 4 Scrapping Cottage dies + different Distress Inks for coloring + white tempera + printed words. I really like to work with Kraft paper and both cards are entirely made of it. 
I love to watch how paper and die cuts get the new look, when I'm coloring them with sponge and different inks.
I never did vintage card for a newborn baby before, so I was really curious how it will look like at the end. When I was coloring the bear I got a picture in my mind where he was sitting on a shelf. So I used another CottageCutz Spice Rack & Jars and put teddy bear on a rack and gave three jars on it as well. Each jar is full of 'spices' which newborn baby brings to the world: happiness, joy and smile.
Second card is the perfect way to say someone that you love him/her. Such a cute teddy bear is the perfect messenger :o) Here I used two more dies - Angel Wings and Marker Sign Shape.
Here are the sets, which I used on my projects:

Have a beautiful day!

Oh Teddy Bears are my favorite. How cute this is. What a creative use of those dies. I love how you used the spice rack to look like a hutch.
