My share for today is a cute Bear Hugs Christmas card that I designed using a lot of Stampin' Up Products; Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper, Fa La La La Friends, Snow Place, Jolly Friends, Bear Hugs, Jar of Cheer, Peaceful Pines Stamps Sets, Perfect Pines, Snow Friends, Everyday Jars and Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies, Jolly Hat Builder Punch and Cable Knit Dynamic Emboss Folder.
Let's take a look:
Isn't that little Bear just the sweetest! I took these pictures before I brushed Wink of Stella on the Bow, Candy Cane and Bulbs. I show these below farther down in my blog post.
My Card Bases are Cherry Cobbler Cardstock cut at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored and folded at 4-14".
My Card Front Panel is Whisper White Cardstock cut at 4" x 5-1/4".
I ran my Card Front Panel through my BIG Shot Machine using Stampin' Up's Cable Knit Dynamic Emboss Folder. This Emboss Folder is a lot thicker than a normal one and creates a much deeper emboss. We were told by SU to spritz water onto the cardstock before running it through our BIG Shots so the Emboss Folder wouldn't tear through the cardstock. I ended up spritzing both sides of my cardstock. I adhered my Card Front Panel to my Card Base with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.
Using SU's Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies, I die cut the Largest Oval from Dapper Denim Cardstock and adhered it to my Card with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.
Using SU's Peaceful Pines Stamp Set, I stamped the Tree in Old Olive Ink onto Old Olive Cardstock and die cut it out with SU's Perfect Pines Framelits Dies. I adhered the Tree to my Card using Mono Multi Purpose Glue.
Using SU's Jar of Cheer Stamp Set, I stamped the Bow in Cherry Cobbler onto Whisper White Cardstock and die cut them out using SU's Everyday Jars Framelits Dies. I adhered the Bow to the top of my Tree using Mono Multi Purpose Glue.
Using SU's Jolly Friends Stamp Set, I stamped the Hat Tassel for the Bulbs in Delightful Dijon, Cherry Cobbler and Dapper Denim Ink and punched them out using Jolly Hat Builder Punch. I adhered my Bulbs to the Tree using Mono Multi Purpose Glue.
Using SU's Snow Place Stamp Set, I stamped the Candy Cane in Cherry Cobbler Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock.
Using SU's Snow Friends Framelits Dies, I die cut out the Candy Cane and adhered it to the bottom of the Oval and on top of the Tree Trunk with Mono Multi Purpose Glue. I considered the Candy Cane as a Sled for the Bear to be Sledding on.
Using SU's Fa-La-La-La Friends Stamp Set, I stamped the Bear in Basic Black Archival Ink onto Soft Suede Cardstock.
Using SU's Bear Hugs Framelits Dies, I die cut out the Bear.
I stamped the Bear again in Dapper Denim ink onto Whisper White Cardstock, fussy cut out his Snow Suit and adhered the Snow Suit to the Bear with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.
Using SU's Bear Hugs Stamp Set, I stamped the Bear's Hat and Bow in Dapper Denim Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock. I adhered the Hat onto the Bear's Head with Mono Multi Purpose Glue and the Bow to the Bear with a small piece of Stampin' Dimensional.
I adhered the Bear onto my Card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
For the inside of my Card: Using SU's Stitched Framelits Dies, I die cut the Largest Oval from Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper and the Second Largest Oval from Whisper White Cardstock.
Using SU's Fa-La-La-La Stamp Set, I stamped the Sentiment in Basic Black Archival Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock. I cut the Sentiment Stamp in half and put both rows onto my block before stamping which made it a lot easier.
I adhered the Whisper White Oval to the DSP Oval and to the inside of my Card with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.
Goodness, that was a long one!
Here are some pictures after Brushing on the Wink of Stella.
It's really hard to capture the Wink of Stella in pictures and it's so pretty in person.
And, as you can see in the pictures, I switched up the Bulb's on the Tree's. Some are all Delightful Dijon or all Dapper Denim or all Real Red and some I mixed them up with all three colors.
That's all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
