Paper Bear Hugs!

These stamps are from The Stamp Market’s newest release… and I’m in LOOVE!

To make this card, I started with the “Paper Hug” stamp set and stamped (a few times) using my Abandoned Coral distress oxide. I stamped it enough that it was mostly filled, but that it still looked a little “grungy”.

Then, I die cut it with the coordinating die.

I then stamped and die cut the little bear.

I colored the little guy in with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and used my white Gelly pen to add highlights. I used my clear Wink of Stella pen to add a little glitter to the heart.

Then, I laid my pieces out to see where I could put the Hearts border (also from The Stamp Market).

I removed my sentiment and bear and stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.

I chose the “Here for You” sentiment from the Bear Hugs stamp set and stamped it with Versamark.

I used White embossing powder and then used my heat gun on it.

I die cut it with the Sentiments die cut from Simon Says Stamp and then cut it down to size with scissors.

I used the Falling Skies stamp set to do some falling hearts with my Abandoned Coral distress oxide.

Once I had all of my hearts and everything laid out how I liked it, I put 3D foam adhesive on the back of everything and adhered it to the card. I used the long strips from CutCardStock.com and cut them down to the size I needed.

For my finishing touch, I added the cute sentiment on the back.

Here are some close up photos of the front of the card!
