Don't Be Blue

Hello Crafty Friends,

Today I am excited to share with you a card that I have created using a brand new stamp from a brand new stamp designer. Barb from BugBites has just created her very first set of stamps and asked me, along with some very talented ladies, to create a few projects with them. She is displaying all the projects on her blog.

I am sharing my first project with you today. The stamp set I am using is called "All Year Round." It features sentiments for many special holidays along with everyday sentiments. They stamp beautifully, too!

When I saw this sentiment the first thing I thought of was Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh. So, I had to use him.

The Pooh and Friends Cricut cartridge was one of the first cartridges I ever bought and it has a lot of cute images with a lot of extras, too. But, I had never cut out Eeyore. I knew there were going to be some small pieces so I cut him out at 3.75 inches. I also decided to use the butterfly from this cartridge. It is probably my favorite butterfly and I have used it many times.

Here is what was used to create this 4.25 x 5.5 inch card:
Pooh and Friends Cricut cartridge
Bug Bites Stamps ~ "All Year Round"
My Mind's Eye cardstck ~ Summer Song and Penny Lane
Fiscars edge punch
Stardust Stickles
Ranger Glossy Accents
Foam tape, black and white gel pens, ATG

Now, before you go I want you to know that Barb has been have sneak peeks on her blog since Monday, August 1st. AND, if you go over there and leave a comment on all of her posts from Monday through Sunday, August 7th,  you will have 7 chances to win one of the new sets of stamps. Not only will one person win but seven lucky crafters will win! She will draw the winners are August 8th.

So hurry on over to BugBites and check out all the fantastic projects for this release party!

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Crafting!

This is so cute! I saw this on Bug Bites and had to come over and comment! I just love it! My dad acts just like Eyeore (he has all his life and he is now 91) lol, so I have always had a special place in my heart for Eyore! Great job!
