What is better start for a new week than sharing some love? I am rather sentimental these days and my mood always shows on my cards. Today I brought you something bear-y cute, which I have created with Simon Says Stamp products.
I started with stamping and colouring the cute bear from the SSS Love you beary much stamp set using my Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers: bear: EB4, EB3, EB2, EB1, MB1, MB05, heart: DR5, DR3, DR1, DR05. Then I cut it out with the coordinating die. After die cutting I used a black glaze pen and went over the stamp sentiment inside the heart to make it pop.
The next step was to work on the background: I used the We R Memory Keepers Hearts embossing folder on coloured cardstock and did a light ink blending with Barn Door, Candied Apple and Aged Mahogany Distress Oxide inks. I added some splatters too.
I stamped a sentiment on the bottom of the panel from the SSS Love Greetings Mix stamp set and the big Love sentiment on white cardstock with red ink from the SSS Love you Beary Much stamp set. I used the coordinating die to cut it out.
After popping up the bear and the sentiment with 3D foam squares, I added a golden frame around them which I have cut with the SSS Frames die set.
As a finishing touch I used glossy accents on the Love sentiment and on the nose of the bear too.
I hope you liked my inspiration today and will check back soon. If you like my cards and would love to interact with me, please make sure to follow me on Instagram as well. It is easier to have real conversations there.
Have a nice day!
