These two little bears are so cute, you will want to just grab them right off the card and give them a hug!!
This card was made using the Baby Bear Photopolymer Stamp Set which is called a 2-step stamp set, but in actuality it is really a three step stamp set. To make these darling little bears really pop, you will want to start stamping with the lightest color/shade first and then a slightly darker shade next with the darkest color/shade last.
For this card I started with the stamp labeled #1 and Crumb Cake ink, the next layer (stamp #2)was stamped in Soft Suede ink with the final layer (stamp #3) in Early Espresso ink. If you are going to stamp the bears on a brown tone or darker colored cardstock, you will want to skip the first step with the lightest ink. This stamp set even comes with a cute little bow for around the little bears neck or ear. To give the card a little dimension, I stamped two bears following the directions above onto Very Vanilla cardstock. The next step is to fussy cut both bears out. For the boy bear, I cut his head off of the body and adhered the body to a Very Vanilla card front using snail adhesive. I then adhered the bear head back onto the bear body, tilting the head a little bit to the side. For the girl bear, I attached her (all in one piece) to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals to give the card some depth. The bow for the boy bear is a 2-step stamp. The first layer/step was stamped in Pool Party ink. The second layer/step was stamped in Dapper Denim ink. The little girl bear's bow was made with Melon Mambo Thick Bakers Twine. The sentiment is from the Baby Bear Photopolymer Stamp set and was stamped with Early Espresso Ink onto the card front panel. The edges of the front panel were sponged with Crumb Cake ink and then the card was adhered to a Crumb Cake card base.
My daughter made this alternate Baby Bear card. She followed the same technique as above. The flowers were made using the Floral Affection Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and then colored the raised embossed area with the 2016-2018 Stampin' Write Markers.
