Baby Bear

Hello all!

It is me again! Wow the week has gone by quickly and it's the weekend already, woop!

So my post this week is all about the Baby Bear photopolymer stamp set.

This is a lovely stamp set which is perfect for a new addition to the family, or for a child's birthday card, but obviously can be used for anything you want, they are just a few of my suggestions.

So this is the stamp set and you use it in 3 steps:
  1. Choose three ink colours, usually in the same colour spectrum, such as dark brown, medium brown and light brown, etc.
  2. Use the bottom left bear stamp and stamp in the lightest ink colour.
  3. Use the bottom right bear stamp and stamp over top of the first image with the medium ink colour.
  4. Finally use the top right bear stamp and stamp over the first two images with the darkest ink colour.

It does not matter if you do not get it exactly in the right place, as I have done some a bit off but it does not really show, and the more times you do it the better you get at it!

 These cards were stamped with Chocolate Chip (darkest), Soft Suede and Crumb Cake (lightest).

I used Blushing Bride and Pool Party stitched statin ribbon, card for matting and enamel shapes.

Both on Crumb Cake note card bases.

  The blue bear was stamped onto Soft Sky card stock, and the following inks were used, from dark to light, Night of Navy, Marina Mist and Whisper White.

The grey bear was stamped onto Blushing Bride card stock, and the following inks were used, from dark to light, Basic Grey, Smoky Slate and Whisper White. 

The ribbon is stitched satin in Crumb Cake.
I thought it would be good to do a card in yellow, in case you wanted a gender neutral card.

I might do another card with a yellow bear, using Crushed Curry, So Saffron and Whisper White, but there are so many combinations to do all you can do is just try them out, that is half of the fun!!

 This final card stamped, again, onto Blushing Bride card but this time using inks (dark to light) Melon Mambo, Flirty Flamingo and Whisper White.

Well that is it from me for now, I will be back next week with more creative makes, look forward to seeing you.
