Morning Cup is the name of this stamp set from Stampin' Up! It's perfect to watercolor with an Aqua Brush, blender pen or you could use pastels too (chalk). I used an aqua brush and the Lattice embossing folder for the background. I think it looks like a linen tablecloth - perfect for a morning cup of coffee with a friend.

Last night, I held a Mom and Me Build-a-Bear Workshop. It was really fun and all the girls went home with a closet-ful - I mean tin full of clothes and accessories for their bears. We used a CD tin and magnet sheets. After putting the ribbon through holes punched in the tin with the Crop-o-dile for a handle, I found the tin would not fit tight. Bump it into something and it might pop open so we put a ribbon around the middle for extra insurance. It can be slipped on and off. Looks pretty cute too!
The scalloped square cut with the Big Shot does not have a magnet, the magnetized bear holds it on.
Another tip - the little sizzlets with the bear accessories - hat, purse, flowers, etc. will not cut through a magnet sheet. So, what I did was use two-way glue. I glued the backs of these items and then set them aside to dry. Once dry, they are kind of like a post-it note that you can stick over and over again. Worked great with these bears - didn't have a magnet but still stuck. Another option would be to stick the accessory to the adhesive side of the magnet sheet and carefully hand cut it.Cute boy bear with messenger bag.
