Stampin' Up Baby Bear A Little Foxy IV

Yup, more rain and more rain and more rain!  Some places are to get up to 4".  I hope it is not us!  Can't wait for the sun to shine again.

My share for today is a couple more cards that I designed using Stampin' Up's Baby Bear Stamp Set for Anniversary or just plain LOVE cards.  I also used A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper Stack, Layering Squares and Ovals Framelits and SU's new Classic Label Punch.  

Stampin' Up shared a card with us that they made using a boy and a girl baby bear for a wedding card.  The girl baby bear even had a lace veil and the boy had a top hat.  It was so cute!  Just another idea to show the versatility of this set.

Let's take a look:

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

My card front panel is a Heart piece from SU's A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper Stack cut at 4" x 5" and adhered to my card base using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

Using SU's Layering Squares Framelits, I die cut a square from Basic Black Cardstock that measures 3-1/4" x 3-1/4" and adhered it to my card front panel with 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 Crumb Cake Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, the next Bear image with Soft Suede and the least detailed Bear image with Early Espresso.

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.  (And, you can see where I missed on this one; but, it still looks fine).

Using the Scalloped Square that measures 3" x 3", I die cut out the bear and adhered him to the Basic Black square using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

Sorry to keep repeating the stamping instruction; but, you never know when someone new is going to stop by.

The Bears' Bow in this set is a two-step stamping technique.  I stamped the least detailed Bow image using Real Red Ink and the most detailed Bow image using Cherry Cobbler.  I fussy cut the bow out.

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

I masked the words "beary much" off of my sentiment using a piece of masking material (tape is fine to use also) and only stamping "love you" onto a scrap piece of Whisper White Cardstock.  I punched it out using SU's new Classic Label punch.  I lined the sentiment piece over the top of a scrap of Basic Black Cardstock and trimmed out a background piece.  I adhered the two together and to my card using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

I adhered a piece of A Little Foxy DSP with the hearts to the center of the inside of my card.

For the inside of my card, I die cut another heart from Whisper White Cardstock 
and stamped my sentiment using Basic Black Archival Ink.  This time I masked off the words "love you" and only stamped the "beary much".  I adhered it to the inside of my card over the DSP using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.  The piece of DSP measures 1" x 4-1/4".

And, of course, I added a Real Red Circle Enamel Shape to the Bears' Bow and two Hearts to the sentiment.

Here's another version:

The only difference is that I used SU's Layering Ovals framelits with Smokey Slate Cardstock.

The Basic Black Cardstock piece measures 2" x 5-1/2" and the A Little Foxy DSP piece measures 1" x 5-1/2".

I did the same masking as on the first card.

And, I just had to add more Real Red Enamel Shapes!!!

For the inside of my card, I turned my piece of DSP vertically instead of horizontally and used the other style of the Sweet & Sassy Heart Framelits.

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!
