Bear Hugs

Wow…I sat down yesterday to do some wedding cards and baby cards that I have REALLY been needing to do!  I'm SO late getting them out.  Is anyone else like that?  I want to make a card SUPER special for someone and end up not getting it done in a timely manner!  I mean, I know it will be appreciated any time I send it, but like the cobbler, I always work on my PERSONAL stuff last!


Anyway, I need a baby boy card for my NEW great-nephew, Mason!  Welcome to the world, Mason!  We already have another boy named Mason in our family on my side!   Too funny!  I pulled out Bear Hugs thinking that it was retiring and I'd use it one more time for my blog.  But…then I see that it is NOT retiring…it is still available!  I just LOVE using this set for baby cards…quick and easy to color and interchangeable for boy or girl!



I started with a base of Baja Breeze and layered on Soft Suede.  I am trying to use up my retiring Designer Paper…this one is called Elegant Soiree is SO pretty in the muted earthy tones.  (BE WATCHING!  I will be offering NEW Ribbon and Designer Paper Shares on July 1st!!!) 


I stamped baby bear with Black Stazon on Whisper White, then used my AquaPainter and Stampin' Write Markers to color him in Soft Suede, Baja Breeze and Crumb Cake.  His diaper is painted with Moonlight Smooch Pearlized Accent Ink for a shimmery look!  I punched with the 2 3/8 Scallop Circle and layered on the 2 1/2 Circle Punch of Soft Suede.  I added a 1 3/4 punched circle of Crumb Cake.  Then I used the Large Oval and punched out the Bear Hugs greeting from Whisper White and layered on the Scallop Oval of Baja Breeze.  Finally, I added a Real Red punched Small Heart.  Lots of punches, but I love this layout!


Busy day again, need to finish getting ready for my Stamp Club meeting tomorrow night!  Hope you have a WONDERFUL day!


Sharing creativity one stamped image at a time!

Totally agree with what you are saying…sometimes I scare myself away from cute projects that I think I cannot make or duplicate…silly cuz when I get in there it is never as hard as it seems to be.  Though I am a hobby demo, I don't get my cards out in time either…but that regular job gets in the way too often.  Adorable card and I'm sure his parents will love it!

Your card is so darned cute (retired now as it is, anyway) and I am off to case this!  I love your style and all of your work Connie… Thanks so much for sharing yourself with us!  I'm excited by this card… Thanks so much for your coloring details too!  Cheers!
