Creating with Build-A-Bear

I had the luxury of one whole day playing with the Build-A-Bear products featured in the Holiday Mini Catalog exclusively from Stampin' Up! I am so excited to show you some of them today and will show you more tomorrow.

Our house is totally into ASU football, I had the idea to create a cheerleader and football player to represent Arizona State. Here they are, hope you like them!
ASU Cheerleader
I used a flower out of the Kind & Caring Thoughts set for the pom-poms (ever since I got this set I have called this flower the pom-pom flower) so what better way to use it. I cut narrow strips of Whisper White and adhered them onto the Garden Green panel to look like the lines of a football field and the cheerleaders are usually on the sideline during the game.

ASU Football Player
I did not have a stamp for a football so I cut one freehand and used the White Gel Pen to draw the lines. I cut narrow strips of Whisper White and adhered them onto the Garden Green panel to look like the lines of a football field and placed the player in between the lines as if he were on the field.
