Mojo 120 - Sketch Challenge - Googley Eyes and Glitter

For Mojo Monday I wanted to make a juvenile Valentine's Day card. I really love this little bear from the Under the Stars stamp set so I used him with some glittery hearts to appeal to a younger crowd. I stamped him in chocolate chip ink and colored him in using close to cocoa and creamy caramel Stampin' Write markers. Even though this guy is cute, I added a few googley eyes for some additional character. I then punched the hearts using the Heart to Heart punch and covered them with pink glitter. My valentine bear is mounted on so saffron card stock (cut with my circle scissors) and rose red card stock die cut using the Sizzix Scallop Circle #2 die.

Again, I reached for the new Sweet Pea Designer Series Pack from the new Spring Mini-Catalog for all the layered papers. The scalloped edge is created using the new Scallop Trim Border punch from the new Sale-A-Bration catalog. The card is finished with 5 pink rhinestone brads.

I think this card will be perfect for my son Jake for Valentine's Day - It also happens to be his birthday so he gets 2 cards from me on that day. He's my "Funny Valentine" just like this little bear.


  1. The googly eyes really did make me LOL - very very fun!

    I'm with you, I love that bear. I'll be looking for an appropriate time to google his eyes on a project.

  2. Adorable - the eyes definitely add character - love the glitter hearts!

  3. Great idea with this stamp set and those hearts. Such an adorable card. If you are interested in more challenges, please check out a new challenge blog. www.stampinroyalty.blogspot.com
