Tips & Tricks Tuesday: Baby Bear

IMG_8470Saturday 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 IMG_8467the 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!
