Magical Day

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Being a brand new month it is time to introduce a new challenge hostess, which is Kelly McKown-Santi.

Apparently Saturday 9th September is Teddy Bear Day, so for our challenge this week we are to create a card featuring a Teddy Bear!

Hopefully this cute little guy is classed as a teddy bear ... it is close enough for me haha! I recently received this stamp and so wanted to play with it.

To create my card I used the floating floor die which is included in the new House & Fence Pop-up Card die set from Karen Burniston. I am sure I will be using the floating floor die a lot!!!

I stamped the rabbit in the hat twice on white cardstock and twice on acetate, cut them out and layered the cardstock rabbits over the acetate ones so that I still got to see those magic dots around the rabbits. I added a speech bubble to the top of the card and a birthday greeting on the bottom section.

Here is another look at the inside of my card so you can see the floating floor a little better.

I kept the front of the card fairly simple seeing the focus is on the inside of this card. I stamped the rabbit/hat five times along a strip of white cardstock, added a sentiment and some stars.

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:

That floating floor is very clever -- and makes a nice stage for your wizard bear!

So cute - and I love how you used the acetate for the 'magic' around the hats.
