Bear Hugs!!!!


Today kicks off several days of samples of the soon-to-be-released CCDesigns stamps over at All That Scraps!!! This card features one of the roly poly Teddy Bears and both of those chubby little Bees!!

I was actually way ahead of the game when I was working on my samples....as you can probably see, because I used a Dirty Girl sketch challenge as inspiration for this card and they were up a couple of weeks ago. This sketch was designed by Holly and I really had fun using it.

I used Chocolate Chip for the card base with a layer of So Saffron, then I added a layer of Certainly Celery which I ran through my Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots embossing folder. The patterned paper is from the DCWV Spring Stack and I added some satin brown ribbon across the middle.

I stamped each of the little characters on Wausau bright white cardstock and coloured them using my Copic markers. I used the oval Nestabilities on the bear and saffron layer and I cut out the bees. Now their antennae were too narrow to cut out so I took some flower centers that came with some Prima flowers and coloured them with my black Copic marker and then attached them with tape on the back of the bees! So easy and cute!




I pop dotted the oval layer and each of the bees, then added three SU buttons on the side....which was difficult for me, because I am such a hoarder, but this card is also for the ATS button challenge from a couple of weeks ago!! I finished it off by adding some highlights with white acrylic paint and some Stardust Stickles to the bees' wings!! So cute, right??

Now I asked Christine if the Bear and the Monkey have names but she said not yet. Now I think ALL characters should have names, don't you??? So head on over to the ATS blog today and get in on your chance to win some of the new stamps and put in your two cents worth on the name thing!! While you're there, you can check out some other awesome creations with the Bear Hugs set!!

I have the day off today and guess what I got in the mail yesterday???? NEW STAMPS!!! And these ones came all the way from Switzerland!!! Can you guess which ones they are??? I just might have a card made with one of these 'Joy'-ful stamps for tomorrow's Friday Sketchers Challenge!!! So be sure to come on back and see!!!! Have a stampin' good day!!!
