Today I'm sharing some cards I made using the Baby Bear stamp set. I needed a card for a friend of mine who is expecting her first baby and I thought it would be perfect to pair this card with a Teddy Bear to match!
Start by stamping the darkest layer of the Teddy Bear (the one with the least amount of area to ink) using Chocolate Chip ink. Then, line up the next stamp (the one with a little more area to ink) using Soft Suede ink. And finally, line up the solid image and stamp it with Sahara Sand ink. I've tried starting with the solid (lightest) image first and working my way to the darker images, and either method works fine. I added detail to the eyes using a Black Glaze Pen, let that dry, and added a tiny white dot using a White Gel Pen. Then die cut the teddy bear using a square from the Stitched Shapes Framelits set.
To make a card for a girl or boy, simply choose a blue or pink card stock and designer series paper to match. For the boy card, I chose a Pool Party card base and Bermuda Bay mattes, with a pattern from the the Picture Perfect Party DSP stack.
For the girl card, I chose a Flirty Flamingo card base with Melon Mambo mattes, with a pattern from the Painted With Love DSP pack.
I added the same sentiment to each card using Chocolate Chip ink, and then added a matching enamel heart from the Brights Enamel Shapes embellishment pack. The teddy bear and sentiment were popped up using Dimensionals.
