Baby Love - Me and Teddy Card

Hello friends, thank you for stopping by!  Today I am sharing a tutorial for Spellbinders using the Little Loves Collection by Licensed Designer Sharyn Sowell.  Sharyn's Dies are always inspiring - the original being hand cut using scissors - an amazing skill in itself.  Sharyn is a very accomplished artist and you can read a little about her HERE.

'Little Loves Collection by Sharyn Sowell is full of moments captured in the eyes of little ones as they experience the wonders of life and first milestones.' - Spellbinders

Cut/emboss one Shapeabilities Me and Teddy Etched Dies Little Loves by Sharyn Sowell Die using white card stock and the Platinum 6 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine - 6" Platform.  Sponge using Imagine Memento Ink in Teal Zeal and a Sponge Dauber creating an ombre effect - light from the top working to dark at the bottom of the image.

Pop the die cut image up onto patterned paper that has been cut/embossed using the Spellbinders Nestabilities Scored and Pierced Squares Etched Dies using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Crafty Foam Tape.  Next pop the layered image up onto Authentique Paper that has been cut/embossed using Nestabilities Celebrations Pierced Squares Etched Dies and 3D Foam Squares.  Adhere the layered card front onto a slightly larger pre-cut white card base.

 Want2Scrap  White Double Picot Trim - has been glued below the Die cut image. The Midge Blue Mix flowers from Little Birdie Crafts  have been glued to the left corner of the card front.  The mix contains plain flowers and glittered, which gives great options - I have used the glitter flower in the centre and added Want2Scrap medium white pearls for the flower centres.

Want2Scrap Eternal Swirls have been trimmed and adhered each side of the flower, with the lower bling being added across the lace and slightly onto the chipboard.  Drops of Imagine irRESISTibles Pico Embelliser in Teal Zeal has been randomly added to create faux enamel dots.  A computer generated sentiment has been adhered to the top right corner using double sided tape.
