3CTC7 Chocolate Chip Cookies

I made this card for Kerry's Thursday Challenge, 3CTC7, Eat It. I never realized how many food stamps I don't have. I did find this cutie that I bought last year along with about 20 others. They are clear mini stamps. I bought 2 sets for $2.50 at a LSS in NH. I only bought 2 because I thought that was a bit pricy for a small set. About two months later I was poking around in Joanns and in the dollar bin I found about 30 more different sets by the same company for a dollar a set, that is how I now own so many of these cute sets.

This card changed so many times before I finished it. I colored the bear (I am not really sure what kind of animal he is, I just know he's cute) then started digging through my DP to find something cheery. These two are new from my LSS. I love the bright colors, especially the blue dotted one. I had the image on a white oval and the card was almost done but it was too much white against the bright DP so I decided to cut him out and pop him up on an oval punched out of the same DP as the backround. I decided after that the card needed some ribbon and couldn't decide what color I liked best on the card so I ended up using all three. I really liked the end product, but I still don't think you'll see me cutting out alot of what I color. It's just too easy to mess it up and have to start all over!

Stamps: Clear Mini Stamps by Inkadinkado
CS: SU Bliss Blue, Pixie Pink and DP Melissa Frances
Ink: Versafine black and Copics
Accessories: Nesties, Dew Drops, Michael's ribbon and Signo white pen

I love what you did with this. When I saw it colored I couldn't figure out what you were going to do. Great Job!

What a great job, Mary! It's so cute. Love the dp and how you put him on the dp. I never think to do that. It's because I hate to cut like you do! The stamp set is really cute too.
