I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Bear Hugs

Good Saturday morning,

All week, I had every intention of getting a card made for the Mojo Monday contest, but I just didn't seem to have the "mojo" each evening after work. However, I woke up this morning feeling much more creative. I pulled out an older Taylored Expressions Valentine's Day set and made this little cutie.

I stamped the bear and heart flowers with Momento tuxedo black and colored the images with Copics. I used Die-namics stitched rectangles to cut the bear image out and another for the red layer. The heart flowers are cut with a Die-manics pierced circle and layered onto a TE layering doily. The flag elements are Die-namics pierced fishtail flag dies. I added some wink of stella clear glitter pen over the heart flowers. The sparkle doesn't show in the pics, but IRL it's very pretty.

Stamps: Buddy Bear set by Taylored Expressions
Paper: SU real red and XPress-It Blending card stocks and "Love Notes" by Crate Paper patterned papers
Ink: memento tuxedo black, Copics and SU real red
Other: Die-namics stitched rectangle, pierced circle and pierced fishtail flags dies, TE small layering doily die, Fiskers corner rounder punch, the Big Shot and dimensionals

Have a great weekend. Thanks for coming by,
