{SFYTT & TCP} Got Love?? I Do!!

Whew! I am one busy girl, I tell ya! This weekend I went on a little retreat with some girls...I decided to try something different than scrapbooking, so I took some material and my sewing machine and made something fun! I can't tell you right now, but in a few days I'll post some pics of my creations! (one is for my SIL and she checks my blog regularly, so I can't tell you what I made until she sees hers;) LOL! I also took some supplies and made this card for the TCP challenge this week:

I also used Jen's SFYTT for the month of January for this one.

I used two TCP stamps on this one: The bear is from the set Honey Bear and the balloons are part of the penguin stamp in Got Love. I paper peiced the bears tummy, muzzle, ears and toes, and coloured the rest of him with copics (E25,27,29). Her heart is paper pieced, popped up with a dimensional and crystal effects on top for shine. The balloons are the same: paper pieced, the odd one popped up and crystal effects on all of them. Chocolate bakers twine was added to the back of the balloons and tied with a bow and glued to her hand. I used my new MME paper. A mix of 'Hazel' and 'Gertie'. The tealy colour is baja breeze and I embossed it with a swirly cuttlebug folder. I used my circle and scalloped circle nesties to cut out the main image and teal dp behind. I also used some TCP cutups on this one: Icing and Big Scallop. The 'Love' ribbon is  from American Crafts and I thought it was perfect for the challenge! And check out the shine on those balloons! I also CE'd (is that a word??) her eyes and nose:)

Here is a close-up of the balloons! You can see the dimension in this picture better.

And here is the inside of the card. I stamped the bear in chocolate ink, added some more hearts that were paper-pieced and glazed, a few strips of dp and the icing and big scallop dies again. I used the sentiment from the 'Got Love' set and stamped it as one line instead of two.
