Wedding Bears

The Clipart Fairy has just added some sweet Wedding Bears collections to her stores, there are two sets - one pink, one lilac, and both have interactive and RTP options.

Although I enjoy colouring my own images, it is always handy to have something ready coloured, and with matching papers to be able to put together a card in a hurry and I think the Clipart Fairy kits are excellent for doing just that, so without further ado here are the four cards I made yesterday.

Made using elements from Wedding Bears make me a topper and beyond V3 Pink and Wedding day bears pink Kit. I used the toppers to make apertures in both layers of the card front, cutting away the centre section from each, then made an insert using pearl paper and embossing the page that shows through the window. I Glamour dusted around the openings, brides gown and flourish and added sequin blossoms to her head-dress
Die - Memory Box - Amira Flourish
Embossing Folding - Couture Creations - Venus Crest
Glamour dust - quickie glue pen - 3M spray adhesive
Ribbon, diamant√© buckle, gems, flower blossom sequins - Meiflower

Scalloped Circle dies - Go Kreate
Swirl Die - Marianne Design - swirl circle
Silver ribbon and pearls - Meiflower

This is a tent fold card made using Make me a topper kit Wedding Bears pink and papers from Wedding day bears pink
Punch - Martha Stewart - Deep edge blossom eyelet
Die - Memory Box - Elegant Scrollwork
Sentiment - computer generated- Spellbinders scalloped circle die
Gems, ribbon - Meiflower
The topper is also a mini easel which you can stand up when the card is flat.

My final card was made using the Ready to Print Wedding Bears Easel Card-Lilac, I just printed out the kit first adding my own wording to the editable page and then made up the card.
Border Die - Marianne Craftables - Anja Lace
Ribbon and Gems - Meiflower
In another life I used to do cake decorating and to make a lacy effect on the cake we used to 'take the icing for a walk', which basically means drawing a continuous wiggly line of w's and m's. I decided to do the same thing on her dress using my quickie glue pen and then sprinkling on Glamour dust, I was pleased with the result(left click on the pic and take a closer look, see what you think).

Thanks for stopping by,
