Saturday I shared with you a post about a first birthday party that I went to. It was Miss Bella’s birthday and I was trying to come up with the perfect card for her. On my first attempts I used the brand new Baby Bear stamp set. OK…it won’t be new for you until tomorrow but I figured you needed a sneak peek!
Isn’t this bear adorable? Doesn’t it look just like a real teddy bear? I won this stamp set at the On Stage event last month. So fun!
I am going to be honest with you….I had a hard time stamping this cute little bear. It’s three-step stamping which means it takes three different stamps to stamp the bear. Stampin’ Up! has labeled the three different stamps (1, 2, 3) so you know which order to stamp in.
HOWEVER…and here’s my tip/trick for the day…..I found it much easier to stamp if I stamped 3, then 2, then 1. I would definitely give this a try. I just couldn’t get things lined up perfectly when I went 1, 2, 3. It could just be me but try it yourself.
If you’re wondering what colors I used on the bear for the shading here it is….I used Crumb Cake for 1. Chocolate Chip stamped off for 2 and Chocolate Chip full strength for 3.
Do you love the pink color on this card? It’s the new Flirty Flamingo! So pretty! What about that ribbon? I LOVE it!
Now here is a question I need answered….Which of these two cards do you like better? The baby card or the birthday card? Please leave me a comment and let me know.
Have a great day! Take care and Happy Stamping!
P.S. Don’t forget that today is the last day to order out of the 2015-2016 Catalog!
