Helium Bear Balloon

I am finally getting back in to the creative mood,
good thing too since I have many DT obligations to fulfil!

Speaking of, it's time for a new challenge at 
Dies R Us and the theme is Kids Kards
 I made my own little bear 'helium' balloon using the cutest
new die from Dovecraft called , well, simply BEAR

I cut him from white card stock, then stuck him down
on a piece of sticker paper, then colored in his cheeks,
and his other 'parts' with Copics, then inlaid them.  !
I left the pieces off the hat band and pompom and added glitter (Gypsy Red)
to the exposed sticker paper.
Once I had all that done
I fussy cut him out and then coated him with Nuvo Crystal  Glaze.
It made him real shiny, just like a real balloon

The Balloon Bouquet is a Tutti Designs.
I die cut these from white card stock and colored them with Copics as well.

The Happy and Birthday are both words from Tutti Designs.

I added an embossed confetti background and a big twine bow!

Make sure and visit the Dies R Us challenge blog

You are SO SO CLEVER, Diane! I love your little polar bear helium balloon! Your textures make it look like real mylar! Beautiful child's card (but I would enjoy it, too, so does that mean I am childlike? LOL) hugs, de

What a cute idea and I love the helium bear balloon. You are so clever and with all that shimmer it looks like a real mylar one too. I remember years ago I saved a mylar balloon and fussy cut a few for birthday cards. But I like your bear one much better.

Hahahahaha! What a fun idea to make the bear a helium balloon! So CUTE all glossed up and sparkled. Amazing! I love making kids' cards with the cute images and bright colors. Wish I had more reason to make them, but what am I thinking? I have a hard enough time getting my grown up cards made. I hope you feel much better soon, Diane.
