Just Dreaming

Clean and Simple is the challenge Viv  has set us this time at Crafty Cardmakers.
This is a real out of my comfort zone style, but its not a challenge if you don't try.
The base card is white, looks a bit cream in the photo.
I stamped the image [Indigo Blu stamp]onto plain white card. The sentiment stamp I have had a while and sorry cannot remember the maker. I ran the edge of the ink pad around this piece of card as its not allowed to use layers on CAS cards.
We have two sponsors for this challenge, please pop over for all the details.
Now here is another simple version of  the  card , using the same images, but in a style that I am more used to making.

You can see the base card, shows white, a whole lot better when adding some colour.
Thank you for stopping by, I always appreciate the comments you leave.


  1. Gorgeous card, love that teddy! Hugs, Valerie

  2. So adorable.
    I always treasured my teddy bears (wasn't ever that interested in baby dolls) and still have a bear my Great Aunt gave me when I was a baby, in fact I am sure it was a Christening gift - that bear was take everywhere with me.
    I spied this stamp at That's Crafty thinking how adorable he is. The softness of the second card is so dreamy but I really do like the first card you shared.

  3. No way is this challenge out of your comfort zone Yvonne!! This teddy bear stamp has now gone on my (ever growing)wish list. 2 great cards!

  4. love CAS cards and yours are a dream, Annette x

  5. What an adorable stamp - love both versions, just because they really let the image shine - great CAS work.

  7. You are just so much more comfortable with vintage & yet the CAS one works so well too LOL


  8. I like both of your cards Yvonne but I can see how you would be more comfortable with the second one. I love teddies of all sorts so am happy with anything containing them.
