Stampin’ Up! Cookie Cutter Bear for the Happy Stampers

Happy Stampers Blog Hop

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!  

 

Bear

 

This week, we were challenged to use Smoky Slate, Calypso Coral and Pool Party as our colors.  

 

Happy Stampers Bear

 

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

 

Bear

 

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!

Love & Congrats for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Happy Stampers Blog Hop

 

Welcome to another Thursday and the Happy Stampers Blog Hop.  We’re here to share some of our ideas with you to get your creative juices flowing!  Today, I’m sharing a wedding card full of Love & Congrats, compliments of the Sunshine Sayings stamp set and Sunshine Wishes Thinlets Dies from Stampin’ Up!  (Bundle and save 10%-Yes!)

Here are the colors we had to work with.  Pretty, right?  Why not see what you can create with these….

 

Happy Stampers Blog Hop

 

Here is what I came up with:

 

Love & Congrats

 

First, I stamped some “grunge” from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set onto a panel of Mint Macaron.  I inked up the stamp with Mint Macaron and stamped it off onto a piece of scrap paper before actually stamping it onto my card. Then, I adhered that panel onto a panel of Rich Razzleberry with liquid glue.  

 

Love & Congrats

 

My next task was to create the sentiment, so I die cut three Rich Razzleberry Congrats, using the die from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlets.  I like to die cut several so that the letters pack a little more punch on the card.  They were adhered with my Fine Tip Glue Pen (just small dots).  The hearts were also die cut with Sunshine Wishes Thinlets.  I cut four of them and created 2 hearts for the front, adhering again with the Fine Tip Glue Pen.  Once I decided where all of the die cuts would go, I adhered them to the front of the double layered panel.  Notice that the heart on the right is not glued totally down, it is only attached where the two hearts touch at the bottom.  

 

Love & Congrats

 

The flower images were created with the Jar of Love Bundle, and I used Rich Razzleberry, Mint Macaron and Delightful Dijon inks on a panel of Whisper White, then die cut them.  Also included in the Everyday Jars Framelits is a die that created those small white hearts I used as accents.  Some of the flowers are adhered directly to the front, while a few are popped on with dimensionals.  A length of Rich Razzleberry ribbon was adhered with Tear & Tape, and then the panel was popped onto the Whisper White Thick Cardstock base with dimensionals.

 

Now for the Love portion to my Love & Congrats card:

 

Love & Congrats

 

I searched and searched my stamps and finally found Wishing you on a stamp in the Suite Sayings set that was really meant as an Easter sentiment!  I just taped off the part I did not want to stamp, used my Stampin’ Write marker on the words I wanted, and stamped!  A Lifetime Of is from Sunshine Sayings, and the love part of Love & Congrats is another die from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlets.
