Fall-To Layout 36 - Take Two

I made this card for Natasha's Fall-to Layout #36, Take Two. I'm also entering it into Darnell's NBUS challenge #12 (Never Before Used Schtuff.)  The new items are all dies - the teddy bear, the stitched circle, and the "holey" circles. (I see when I was linking up the blog post that I got the sketch a tad wrong, but I think it will be fine.)

It was so great to be back into my stamping room! A few new dies were delivered while we were staying at our son's house. I finally got a chance to use them. I cut the teddy bear out of kraft. I tried brayering a light brown onto the raised areas, but I got ink in the depressed areas, too. So, I just sponged more ink over the whole thing. I added black "nail heads" to his eyes. (Gosh, that sounds painful! I swear I did it gently.) I had cut the circle out of red with my new stitched circle dies. Then I used the die with holes to die cut inside the stitched circle. I added the teddy bear to the circle and mounted the circle on foam squares. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. The patterned paper is very, very old. I matted both layers with black.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

I love LOVE how your Teddy bear turned out! He's so adorable!! You cracked me up about the nail heads. Yes, it sounded a little brutal. I didn't know there was brutality in stamping, tee hee! Anyway, super cute all over. Your NBUS doesn't stay NBUS very long, does it? I wanna be like you hoo hoo!
