As I told you,,,,,,,Monica Skinner is now on my DT and she was working with my funny and unique "Rooselvet Bears Collection" to create these amazing cards,,,,,,I am falling in love with them,,,,very well done Monica,,,,,lovew the colors,,all the backgrounds,,,,and all over your creativity my friend.
I had a great day working with some of the Roosevelt Bears by Nicecrane Designs. They are fabulous, it was as if they were talking to me … telling me their little stories … and now they are walking around my house!!!!
As you can see it is a get well soon card. He looks as if he has a bit of a hangover, maybe that last glass of wine had gone off a bit … Like all the other images he was so easy to colour in, you just follow the lines for the shading. I suppose, you might not even have to, because the shading is already within the drawing … just give it a go and experiment.
… the hard working one. Maybe he earned all that money that he then pulled out of the purse … hmmm
I turned him into a ‘Thank You’ card. This seems to be the bear caught up in house work or any other job, nevertheless he looks happy enough and seems to be enjoying himself.
Hope you enjoyed my blog today and that you got some inspiration from it. If you feel tempted, please check out the Nicecrane Designs website, there are lots of images each telling their own story.

This is my second post to show case the Nicecrane Designs Digi Images that I have been working with.
Please click on the images to see the detail and if you have any questions on how I made these cards, as always, give me a shout.
I have used lots of little scrap pieces of pretty papers for this card. Just using browns and neutral colours to match in with the image.
I thought this image would be nice to make Fall Cards. I love the rich colours on this image.
If you missed my recent post, here is the Nicecrane Designs Digital sheet I have working off.
Another card using the same image and again using pretty papers and card of the colour tones as the main image.
My printer chewed the card stock up as it was feeding through and miss printed just the top of this image. Rather than waste the whole image I made a sort of leaf pelmit to cover up the printer error.
I cut out a piece of card for the pelmit and attached all of the punched out leaves to that. Way easier than trying to attach all of the little fiddly bits to the base card. I then attached my “pelmit” over the image, using foam tape so that it raised it and gives the impression that she is sitting amongst the leaves. Well, that’s what I was trying to achieve!! lol!
And.....what about this vintage elegant and incredible Tag by Astrid Mclean?
The image on the center of the tag is from Nicecrane's beautiful Muse of Poets sheet. I love the romantic vintage feel of these images. I printed it in black and white, cut it with one of my Spellbinder dies (Floral Ovals) and then gave it a hint of colour with Antique Linen and Frayed Burlap Distress Inks.
The big flowers I made myself from paper coloured in exactly the same way as my background. Finally I added some little flowers, a little clay heart and seam binding dyed with the same colours again, to finish it all off.
Nicecrane has many gorgeous collage sheets and they are very reasonably priced!
Absolutely a Must -Have for any crafter,,,,,Thanks a million Astrid
