SUO 145- Love You, Papa Bear
It’s time for the SUO145 “Cute Critters” Challenge and I decided to combine a the new Bear Hugs stamp set with the coordinating Bear Hugs Framelits™ (both in the 2016 Occasions Mini Catalog) along with Timeless Textures (also in the Mini) and Watercolor Wash (2015-2016 Catalog) to create my Clean and Simple (CAS) “cute critter” card.
I also incorporated the Splitcoaststampers’ CC572 Color Challenge along with the CAS363 “Won’t You Call Me Sweetheart” Challenge and the Tic-Tac-Toe #6 Challenge (Celebrate, CAS,Critters).
I hope you will have a chance to check out my sister Design Team member samples at the SU-Only Challenge site as well as the fantastic Design Team samples and gallery at the other galleries- wonderful inspiration from all!
To create this card:
Ink the Bear Hugs images using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock.
Color the images with an AquaPainter™ and Classic Ink- Soft Suede for the bears, Pacific Point for the skirt and Real Red for the heart.
Cut out the images with the Big Shot™ and the coordinating Bear Hugs Framelits™.
With Marina Mist and Wild Wasabi Classic Ink, ink the Watercolor Wash background stamp (top half with Marina Mist, bottom with Wild Wasabi), use a brayer to lift the ink off of the background stamp and brayer onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Ink the line image from Timeless Textures with Wild Wasabi Classic Ink and stamp over the grass area.
Stamp the sentiment from Bear Hugs with Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink.
Trim the panel and mount with Stampin’ Dimensionals® onto the Whisper White card base.
Adhere the skirt onto the large bear and mount both bear images onto the background with Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Using a long piece of Natural Linen Thread, double up the length to create a “rope” for the heart image, knot the ends and add the die cut heart to the center.
Bend the arms up on the bears and adhere the heart rope to the large bear image to finish off the card.
