My share for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop uses the Cookie Cutter Bear from the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set. I am happy this set has images that can be used for more than just Christmas cards. And, that it is not retiring with the Holiday Catalog!
This week, we were challenged to use Smoky Slate, Calypso Coral and Pool Party as our colors.
I started by adhering a panel of A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper to a little larger panel of Pool Party card stock with glue. Next, I stamped the Cookie Cutter bear image from Cookie Cutter Christmas onto a panel of Whisper White, using Smoky Slate ink. For the eyes, nose, and mouth, I used Basic Black Archival ink. I punched out the bear with my Cookie Cutter Builder Punch. **See note at the end of the post concerning the stamp set and punch bundle. the bear’s bow tie was stamped first with Calypso Coral ink, then punched with the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch
I created some frames with my Layering Squares Framelits Dies and some Calypso Coral, Whisper White and Pool Party card stock. The bear was adhered to the center of the Whisper White square and it and the other frame were adhered to the front of the card. This whole panel was adhered to the Smoky Slate card stock base with dimensionals. I used a sentiment from Suite Sayings and stamped it with Basic Black Archival ink onto t panel of Smoky Slate. The banner was then cut using Bunch of Banners Framelits Dies.
For the inside of the card, I fussy cut the banners from another panel of A Little Foxy DSP and adhered it with glue to the top of my Whisper White panel. The sentiment is from Sunshine Sayings and is stamped in Basic Black Archival ink.
You will find a complete list of supplies and card stock cuts at the end of my post.
And now, its time to hop along to see what Kristi has created for us today!
