I stamped the image onto Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock and colored with my Spectrum Noir Blendable Colored Pencils.
I paper pieced some design paper for the present and cut him out with the largest die in the Die'sire Essentials Dies - Squares. I ran it through my eBosser and got the cut and emboss in one pass. I left the piece in the die and added a light shade of Memento Ink Dew Drops london fog with a round blender tool. I filled in the one tiny area on the lid with Spectrum Noir Blendable Colored Pencil 026 and added grounding with 112. TIP: Edge your paper pieces with a black water based marker from the back side - just in case the marker slips, it will be on the back.
I placed the cute little bear on a matching layer of design paper, over the Vintage Christmas Collection 8" x 8" Embossing Folder - Vintage Bows - so cute, matches the bow on the present! For a touch of bling and dimension, I used Stickles star dust on his hat and to pop the dots in image. I stamped "Joy" on the tag from Sentimentals EZMount Stamp Set - Jingle Bells.
On the inside, I added sentiment from the Party Paws set.
The new release will include eight Stamp sets and a
twin CD-ROM packed with colored images, design papers, sentiments and more!
Thank you for visiting!!
Take care and STAY POSITIVE!
