Guess what? More rain for today. Midland got 3" of rain so far this week and now there is some flooding in some areas one of them being the Midland Country Club. I'm sure Emerson Park and the Curry Golf Course is under water also. Not good!
share for today is a card that I designed using Stampin'
Up's Baby Bear Stamp Set for a Christmas card. I
also used SU's Oh What Fun and Weather Together Stamp Sets, This Christmas Designer Series Paper, Lots of Labels Framelits, Layering Circles Framelits and Classic Label Punch.
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 at my card:
My card base is SU Real Red Cardstock cut at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored and folded at 4-1/4".
card front panel is a piece from SU's This Christmas Designer Series Paper cut at 4-3/8" x 5-3/8" and adhered
to my card base using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.
Using the second largest die from SU's Lot of Labels Framelits, I die cut one label from Garden Green Cardstock and adhered it on an angle to my card base with Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.
Using the two largest dies, I die cut a frame from Cherry Cobbler Cardstock and popped it up over the Garden Green label 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. I fussy cut the bear out and adhered him in the center of my frame using Mono-Multi Purpose Glue.
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.
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 and adhered the Bow to the Bear using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.
I fussy cut out some images from This Christmas Designer Series Paper and adhered them to the frame using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.
I stamped the present from SU's Weather Together Stamp Set in Basic Black Archival Ink onto Very Vanilla Cardstock and used my Stampin' Write Markers in Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler to color the present.
I adhered the present under the bear using a Stampin' Dimensional.
Using a sentiment from SU's Oh What Fun Stamp Set, I masked off the bottom of the stamp "until Christmas" and stamped the "do not open" on Very Vanilla Carstock. I punched the sentiment out using SU's Classic Label Punch. I went around the sentiment piece with my Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker and adhered it under the frame using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.
For the inside of my card; Using SU's Layering Circles Framelits, I die cut a circle from Whisper White Cardstock. This time, I masked off the top "do not open" of the sentiment, colored in the "until Christmas" with my Garden Green and Real Red Stampin' Write Markers, huffed on the stamp to rejuvenate the ink and stamped it on the circle.
I added another bow to the top of the circle.
And, of course, I had to add some of SU's Gold Circle Enamel Shapes to the Bears' Bow and the two flowers.
I could keep making Baby Bear cards for more occasions; but, I'm itching to show you some of the cards and projects that I made with the new 2016-2017 SU Holiday Catalog. Hopefully, I can start sharing them this Friday and next week! So....stay tuned!!!
