Bear Hugs- Wishing You A Lake Full of Fish

Hi Again Friends!

Here is another card that I created this past weekend using a brand new stamp set from the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Mini, Bear Hugs along with the coordinating Bear Hugs Framelits™ and a few of my favorite online stamping challenges.


If you have not had a chance to visit the above galleries yet, I hope you will find the time to do so- wonderful Design Team samples and inspiration from all!

This card was fun and easy to create:

Ink the sentiment, large bear and three of the fish images from Bear Hugs using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock. 

Using an AquaPainter™ with Soft Suede Classic Ink, color the bear and lightly color the fish, add Mossy Meadow along with Watermelon Wonder to the three fish.

Trim the sentiment and create the banner points with the Hexagon Punch, mount onto Mossy Meadow cardstock and punch the ends with the Hexagon Punch as well.

Use the Big Shot™ with coordinating Bear Hugs Framelits™ to cut out the bear and the three fish.

Create a rope from Natural Linen Thread and adhere the three fish to the “line”.

Emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Arrows Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, a scrap piece of Watermelon Wonder and Soft Suede with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and a small rectangle piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Zig Zag Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder.

Trim and mount the rectangular piece of embossed Whisper White cardstock to a piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock, wrap a few strands of Natural Linen Thread around the panel and set aside.

Add the strips of Woodgrain embossed Watermelon Wonder and Soft Suede cardstock with a stapler to the embossed Arrows Whisper White panel, trim and mount onto a piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock and adhere the entire background panel onto the Watermelon Wonder card base.

Add the Zig Zag embossed rectangle along with the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals®, add the line of fish to the bear and mount the bear to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card.

What a wonderful mix of patterns and textures on your card Julie - the bear and his fish are just adorable! I love how you kept all your main panels white - this really allows your bear and his fish to stand out. Thanks for joining us over at Create With Connie and Mary this week!
