Stampin’ Up! Baby Bear Thank You for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

I used the Stampin’ Up! Baby Bear stamp set to create my card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop today.  We’ve got a color challenge this week and this is what I created for it.

Here are the colors that we’re using this week:

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Baby Bear photopolymer stamp set in Early Espresso ink down the side of a panel of Wood Textures DSP (available June 1).  I adhered the stamped DSP to a panel of So Saffron card stock with SNAIL and then to a Calypso Coral card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut circles from So Saffron card stock and the Cupcakes & Carousels DSP Stack (retiring May 31) and I adhered them together with SNAIL and to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the images from the Baby Bear stamp set in Early Espresso and Calypso Coral inks (the more solid background images were stamped off one time on scrap paper before stamping on the panel) on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  I cut the images out and adhered them to the card front with SNAIL.  I added a single So Saffron enamel dot from the Subtles Enamel Shapes pack next to one of the stamped thank you sentiments to finish the card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Baby Bear stamp set in Calypso Coral ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock inside the card.  I added a strip of the Wood Textures DSP to finish it.

  1. Oh my gosh Amy, what a super fabulous card!! I would have never gotten that idea from the color challenge and sketch, you blew them away with your design 😉 Yay Amy!!!

  2. Cute card Amy. I love seeing Baby Bear in a more “big boy” colored ribbon or should I call it a bow tie.
