Stampin' Up! Baby Bear in Blushing Bride from the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog

How cute is this bear?!?!  I’m in love!  I was a HUGE fan of “Button Bear”, “Bow Bear” and their accessories from waaaaayyyyy back in Stampin’ Up! history.  When I saw this new Baby Bear stamp set, I knew I HAD to have it!  This Baby Bear features the triple stamp technique.  It is three stamps layered one on top of the other.  They are photopolymer (the rubber is clear) so they are super easy to line up.

The card has a Blushing Bride card base and a layer of Very Vanilla card stock embossed with the large polka dots embossing folder over that.  I used a 1″ x 4″ strip of Blushing Bride glimmer paper to set the bear on (to “ground” her – make her look like she isn’t just floating in air). She was stamped with Crumb Cake and Tip Top Taupe ink.  For the bottom layer I inked in Crumb Cake then stamped off on scrap paper, then stamped onto the card stock. I stamped the next layer in Crumb Cake (without the stamp off) and then Tip Top Taupe over that, then cut her out and adhered her to the card with stampin’ dimensionals.  The bow is stamped on a scrap of paper and fussy cut out and attached to the bear with glue dots.  I used a scrap of Blushing Bride card stock to make the flag at the top.  I stamped the saying in Tip Top Taupe ink.  I added a bit of Wink of Stella to the bow and the center of her eyes for a little sparkle.

Stampin' Up! Baby Bear in Blushing Bride from the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog

The inside of the card is lined with a 4″ x 5.25″ layer of Very Vanilla card stock.  I stamped the bow (in two stamps) with Blushing Bride.  The first stamp was stamped off, the second was full strength.  The saying below is stamped in Tip Top Taupe ink.  I hope you enjoy my card – and all the other wonderful creations on our Hop!
