Hello, Baby…Baby Bear Card

Hello, Baby…Baby Bear Card

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this bear from the Stampin’ Up “Baby Bear” stamp set.  The bear image is created with 3 stamps that are layered on top of one another to add such realistic detail with no coloring needed! For this card, I used Gina K Kraft ink for stamp #1 (the most solid of the three stamps/lightest ink), Gina K Warm Cocoa for stamp #2, and Stampin’ Up Tip Top Taupe for stamp #3.  The greeting is also from the “Baby Bear” stamp set and was stamped with Gina K Kraft ink.

The image sheet that comes with the set has the numbers by the stamps/images, but the numbers are not on the actual stamps themselves, so I wrote the numbers on the stamps with pen before removing them from the image sheet so I could easily tell which stamp/layer was which.  Another little tip I had seen online is to line up the bottoms of the 3 stamps instead of trying to line up the heads.  The details on the head do not go all the way to the top which makes it really hard to line up the images that way.

The balloons were cut with the Paper Smooches “Balloons” dies from paper from the MY Mind’s Eye “Cowboy” patterned paper pad and a scrap from the My Mind’s Eye “Stella & Rose – Mabel” pad .  The plaid paper for the background mat was from the MME “Cowboy” paper pad.  Recollections kraft and cream card stock was also used.

The string for the balloons is a piece of yarn I had in my stash.  It was too thick, so I untwisted the threads and retwisted them into 3 skinnier pieces.

Over at the Die Cut Divas this month, the challenge theme is “for the love of animals/pets” where our projects must include an animal and must also include at least one die cut or embossing folder.

Thanks for checking out my card project!
