Simple Card {To A Perfect Pair}

That little pear is so cute I can hardly stand it! I love using the Shades of Spring DSP as a background for cards with minimal stamping. The pattern is so beautiful on its own that it’s a shame to cover it up.

For the card base, I used Going Gray, layered with Soft Suede card stock and Shades of Spring DSP in this Very Vanilla/Certainly Celery floral pattern.

The only stamping I did was the sentiment, from Picture This (Level 1 Hostess set from Occasions Mini). I stamped it on Very Vanilla card stock in Soft Suede ink and colored in the pear with Certainly Celery Marker. Then, I punched it out with the Large Oval Punch and layered it on Very Vanilla that I sponged with Certainly Celery and Mellow Moss ink, punched out with the Scallop Oval Punch.

Across the bottom of the card, I added some Soft Suede Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon and attached the sentiment to it with Stampin Dimensionals.

Build A Bear Cards {Boy & Girl}

I made this card for a color challenge on Splitcoast. The colors were Chocolate Chip, Sage Shadow, and Dusty Durango (plus a neutral like Whisper White or Very Vanilla). An additional option was to use patterned paper.

The card base is Dusty Durango textured card stock, layered with Autumn Vine DSP in a Sage Shadow pattern. On top of that is Chocolate Chip textured card stock. All the corners of this card were rounded using the Corner Chomper set to the 1/2″ setting.

I stamped the boy bear from Beary Best Friends in Chocolate Chip ink on Very Vanilla card stock and colored him in with Copic Markers. Again, I rounded the corners and layered it onto Dusty Durango card stock. Then, using the paper piercer, I pierced holes in the Very Vanilla card stock and attached it with Stampin Dimensionals.

The sentiment is from Picture This (Hostess Level 1 set from the Occasions Mini). I stamped it in Sage Shadow ink on Very Vanilla card stock and cut it out with the Word Window Punch. That was layered on a Dusty Durango Modern Label Punch, adhered with Stampin Dimensionals. On either side of the label, I added Chocolate Chip Epoxy Brads, also from the Occasions Mini.

Since I had the Beary Best Friends stamp out, I decided to make a girl Build A Bear version. The card base is Going Gray, layered with Rich Razzleberry textured card stock and a polka dot paper from Shades of Spring DSP. The dots are pale plum on Very Vanilla, very subtle.

I stamped the bear in Going Gray ink on Very Vanilla card stock, coloring her in with Copic Markers. That is layered onto Rich Razzleberry textured card stock. I added a border at the bottom using the Scallop Trim Border Punch.

To finish off the card, I stamped “from me to you” from So Many Sayings in Rich Razzleberry ink on Very Vanilla card stock. I cut that out with the Word Window Punch and layered it onto Rich Razzleberry Modern Label Punch.
