Stampin' Up Baby Bear Flirty Flamingo Duet Banner

Goodness...we got some very much needed rain last night.  I'm sure all the Farmers are saying "Ahhhh..." this morning!

First off, I have a comical update of the Mama Whitetail Deer and her two Fawns!

They are really chowing on the clover and grass in our backyard.

After their bellies were full, the race was on.  Around and around the pond they went!

I even caught this little one kicking up its heels.  A little blurry; but, you have to be quick!  How funny is that!!!  He looks like he is doing a nose dive into the ground!

O.K. Hope you like the extra pictures!

My share for today is (actually I have two versions) a card that I designed using Stampin' Up's Baby Bear Stamp Set, Duet Banner Punch, Circle Framelits (Retired) and 2016-2018 Flirty Flamingo In-Color Designer Series Paper Stack. 

Let's take a look:

O.K.  Everyone all together now...1 - 2 - 3 ... Awwwwwwwww!!!

Isn't she sweet and, of course, Baby Bear had to become a Baby card!!!

My card base is SU Whisper White Cardstock cut at 4-1/4" x 11" and scored and folded at 5-1/2".

My card front panel is a piece of Flirty Flamingo from SU's 2016-2018 In-Color Designer Series Paper Stack cut at 4-1/8" x 5-3/8" and adhered to my card base using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

Using one of SU's Retired Circle Framelits, I die cut the largest circle from Flirty Flamingo Cardstock and adhered it to my card front panel using Stampin' Dimensionals.

SU's Baby Bear Stamp Set is a 3-Step Stamp Set using the bear images.  I started out by stamping the most detailed Bear image with Pink Pirouette Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, the next Bear image with Blushing Bride and the least detailed Bear image with Flirty Flamingo.

The images are pretty easy to line up as you can see through the Photopolymer stamp and a clear block.  Even if you miss a little, they still turn out gorgeous!  I wasn't quite spot on with all of the bears that I stamped.

Using SU's Layering Circles Framelits, I die cut out my Baby Bear.

The Bears' Bow in this set is a two-step stamping technique.  I stamped the least detailed Bow image using Pink Pirouette Ink and the most detailed Bow image using Blushing Bride.  I fussy cut the bow out

I adhered the Bear to one of SU's Tea Lace Doilies and then to the Circle on my card using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

I adhered the Bow to the Bear using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

I stamped my sentiment on to Whisper White Cardstock using SU's Basic Black Archival Ink.  I punched my sentiment out using SU's new Duet Banner Punch.  I trimmed the ends of on an angle on each side of the sentiment.  I then punched another banner and adhered the trimmed banner piece to the whole banner piece using Stampin' Dimensionals.  I added the banner under the Baby Bear using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.


I tied a bow using SU's 3/8" Ruched Ribbon in Flirty Flamingo and adhered it to my card using Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

And, of course, I had to add one of SU's Circle Enamel Shapes in Flirty Flamingo to the Baby Bear's Bow and two Heart Enamel Shapes to the banner.

For the inside of my card, I die cut an oval using SU's new Layering Ovals Framelits, stamped the sentiment in Basic Black Archival Ink and adhered it to the inside of my card using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

I also adhered another bow at the top of the oval.

Here's another version of today's card.

And a picture of the inside.

Hope you enjoyed today's blog post!

That's all I have for today.  Thanks for stopping by my blog.  

Have a great day! 

I recently discovered that people are using my cards and/or projects, duplicating them and entering them into challenges and using them for their own card classes.  My cards and projects are my own creations and are not to be used in challenges, blog hops, card classes or sold at craft shows; etc., for profit.  I don't mind if you duplicate my creativity to pass on to family members or friends as gifts or Occasions cards; but,  PLEASE be considerate of others creativity!  Thank you!
