Best Buds Stand Up Card

Best Buds Stand Up Card

Hello! Today I am sharing a card that I made using the BestBudsBears2Stamp stamp set from The Stamps of Life. This stamp set includes the two twin bear stamps you see pictured in my card as well as some adorable sentiments.  There is also a matching die set to go along with this set.

I started off by stamping both bear images onto Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth cardstock with Spectrum Noir Finesse Rustic Brown alcohol proof ink. I colored the images with Copic markers. When I was finished coloring, I die cut the bears with the matching dies.

The card base is from the Word Stand-Up Card die set from The Stamps of Life. I die cut the card base with gingersnap card stock and used the patterned paper from the Blessed Collection for the layering pieces and adhered them to the card.

For the top portion of the card, I adhered the bear images as shown. I die cut a balloon from the 5 x 7 Box Card die set using powered sugar cardstock for the shadow layer and blue jay cardstock for the balloon. I adhered the balloon to the hand of the bear on the right and used white twine for the string. I added a die cut bow in blue jay cardstock to the bear on the left.

For the bottom portion of the card, I stamped the “Best Buds” sentiment with Chocolate ink. I used the Ribbon die and die cut a a piece of powdered sugar cardstock and adhered it above the sentiment. Finally, I added the flower embellishments to each side of the sentiment.

Supplies:

  1. BestBudBears2Stamp
  2. BestBud Bears2Stamp Dies
  3. Inks – Chocolate
  4. Word Stand-Up Card Dies
  5. 5×7 Box Card (for balloon)
  6. Cardstock: Gingersnap, Powdered Sugar, Blue Jay
  7. Patterned Paper: Blessed Collection
  8. Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Cardstock (for alcohol marker coloring)
  9. Spectrum Noir Finesse Rustic Brown Alcohol Proof Ink Pad

Valentine Truck with Bears

Hello!

Valentine’s Day is only four weeks away and I’m getting a head start on my Valentine’s Day cards.

I am in love with this brand new adorable stamp – LoveBear2Stamp – from The Stamps of Life!  It has so many fun hearts, Valentines, two adorable bears, and of course an old fashioned pick-up truck, my favorite! It has a coordinating die set called Valentine Truck w/Bears.  You can use the die set to die cut several pieces of cardstock and/or patterned paper and then paper pierce them together to form the image. This is great if you don’t like to color — you can simply use your papers to make the die cut. At the bottom of this post is a link to my card tutorial on YouTube.

For my first card, I used the stamp and colored it with Copic markers. The stamp is a large stamp which will fill most of the front of an A2 size card base. Therefore, you really don’t need many other things to add to the card front to decorate it. Just put the stamp on a card, color it in, add a few papers, and your done!

For my second card, I used only the dies. It is shown here on a step-up card base. I also used the mini heart stencil to create my own patterned paper.

I also made a third card. This card demonstrates that you can fill the pick-up truck with anything! It doesn’t have to be Valentine’s Day related. You can simply cut the hearts away and add something else of your choice. For my card, I added Easter eggs!
