HYCCT1412 Warm Beary Fuzzies
This card is another card (of the 35) created for the Hope You CanCling To Challenge (HYCCT) atSplitcoaststampers. This one is for LMcAree aka Lori’s HYCCT1412 “Warm Fuzzies” Challenge - (see the gallery here and the details here) along with the Splitcoaststampers SC347 Sketch Challenge.
I decided to use a retired set, Beary Best along with retired Autumn Spice Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) to create this fun card- I just love this paper and the bear images are so cute and "fuzzy"!
Ink the bear image from Beary Best using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock and color using the AquaPainter™ with Stampin’ Up! Watercolor pencils (these are retired as well, but still work great!) :-)
Stamp the large splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge using Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink, trim the panel and mount onto a piece of Early Espresso cardstock, trim again and mount onto a piece of Cajun Craze cardstock.
Use the Big Shot™ along with the Argyle Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of retired Autumn Spice DSP, lightly sand with the Sanding Block, trim and mount onto a piece of Early Espresso cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Cajun Craze cardstock.
Mount the embossed background panel onto the Very Vanilla card base.
Add the vertical panel of Early Espresso Autumn Spice DSP (mounted onto a piece of Cajun Craze cardstock- this piece has a Cajun Craze design that did not show up well in the photo).
Stamp the sentiment using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock, distress with the large splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge using Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink, mounted onto Early Espresso cardstock and again onto Cajun Craze cardstock.
Add the bear focal image and the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals® to the card front per the sketch. Create the horizontal strip using a scrap strip of Olive Green Tweed Autumn Spice DSP mounted onto strips of Early Espresso cardstock (to mimic a layer of Early Espresso under the DSP- love using my scraps for this!), add the scrap strip of DSP to the center and adhere two More Mustard Buttons (with very thin strips of DSP as “thread” in the centers).
Mount this layered horizontal strip to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card.
