Hi Crafty Friends,
Woohoo! We are excited to bring you this video making an adorable card design that features a cutie patootie little bear from the Hi There Bear stamp and die set by Concord & 9th. The stamp set includes lots of fun accessories for ‘dressing up’ your bear but in this card design, he is expressing a simple sentiment with his sign.
With this card design, you can easily change the sentiment to any you desire making it a cute way to send a greeting. Or, make a set of cards with different sentiments and give to a friend.
Here is a short video to show how to create your own adorable bear card.
I have a few images of each card, starting with the purple ombre background, to give you a closer look at the detail. The ombre background was created using three distress inks: Seedless Preserves, Milled Lavender, and Tattered Rose. A stamp positioning tool like a MISTI or stamping platform is very helpful for repeated stamping to achieve the desired color division and saturation.
You can see that I popped up the bear background and the bear for added dimension.
The bear was colored with Copic markers. The six colors I used are listed below in the supply list.
The second card I did has a pink and red ombre background. The ombre was created the same as the first card, only the colors changed. I used Candied Apple, Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar.
You can use any short sentiment. I used Miss You for the purple card and and hello for the second card. Silly me, I should have used the ‘hi there’ included in the stamp set but leave it to me to make it more complicated (haha). Other ideas for sentiments are ‘thanks’ and ‘thinking of you’ or anything else you can think of!
This card was popped up the same way, added dimension and interest to the design.
I hope you enjoy this little bear as much as I do. I think he is perfect for so many occasions, but best of all to send an inviting, warm snuggly feeling to your favorite person. ♥
