Baby Bear

One of the benefits of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator is that you can pre-order products from the new catalog early.  Another benefit is that at Stampin' Up! events you often receive free products.  This particular card was created with our new Baby Bear stamp set which I received at OnStage during a prize patrol.  How lucky am I?

This card brings me back to the very first Stampin' Up! set I owned called Button Bear.  I love anything cute and cuddly and this new and improved Bear stamp set certainly fits that description!  I love how realistic this bear looks too. Stamping baby bear is actually a three step process.  I'm still experimenting with different color combinations.  This one was made with two layers of Crumb Cake and a top layer of Early Espresso.  

The bow was made from the Festive Flower Builder Punch where I punched out one of the pieces and simply folded them in to make a cute little bow.  The color of the bow and background Designer Paper is our new Emerald Envy.  Isn't it pretty?

I hope to get back in my stamp room tomorrow to play with more of my new products.   I have a feeling that like today, its going to be a BEARY fun day.
