Popcorn Bear

I thought I would show you some of what I have been doing behind the scenes.  Crafters Companion launched their Popcorn Love collection.  I really loved working with these stamps and was thrilled that they are smaller than the original Popcorn stamps, so perfect for the 6 x 6 cards (or thereabouts) that I usually make.
I made a pizza box from a template off Splitcoast Stampers that I adjusted to fit the Nestibilities and A4 sized card (instead of US letter) and used the mega curved rectangles for the top and bottom of the box.  I wasn’t happy with the box (it looked too bland) till my hubby suggested I use some peel-off borders.  What!!!  Shock!!!  Horror!!!  But I think they really work.  What a job I had finding the peel offs, they have not seen the light of day for a good couple of years now lol. I found stuff I had forgotten I had even bought!  
How cute is this little dog!!  I even spotted some of my samples on Create and Craft today – oooh get me lol!!

Just a little 6 x 6 card – I love this little bear, too cute!

The papers are all from the accompanying CD, the roses from – yep  you guess it – Wild Orchid Crafts.  The sentiments are part of the stamp sets.
The little basket is cut with the Craft Robo – I actually blew the dust off it again (what a white elephant that turned out to be, I think I have used it 3 times in 3 years!!).  The paper again is off the CD and I used one of the little heart accessory stamps and heat embossed with gold EP for a bit of bling.  Check out those peel offs again lol.

Last one, a Joy Fold card, this is a 7 x 7 card.  Loved the pale backing papers, they really made the red and the image pop.
