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.

Happiness Always Beautiful Wings Butterfly Card

Remember Cottage Wall DSP? I forgot how much I liked it until I pulled it out last night and made this card. I also used another favorite thing of mine–the Beautiful Wings Embosslit.

The card base is Rich Razzleberry Textured card stock, cut to 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″, folded in half for a 4 1/4″ square card. I layered Cottage Wall DSP on Whisper White card stock and wrapped a piece of Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon around the front.

Next, I used the Beautiful Wings Embosslit and the Big Shot to die cut these cute little butterflies in Rich Razzleberry and Whisper White card stock. I layered them with Mini Glue Dots and attached them to the card. This pattern of DSP actually matches the smallest butterfly from the Sizzlet perfectly!

To finish off the card, I stamped the sentiment from Whimsical Words (Sale-a-Bration set free with $50 purchase) in Old Olive ink on Whisper White card stock. Then, I punched that out with the Large Oval Punch and layered it onto Rich Razzleberry punched out with the Scalloped Oval Punch. That’s attached to the card base with Stampin Dimensionals.

Distressed Flower Card

I decided to try something a little different than my usual style this time around. I guess I have a hard time with the distressed look because I always want things to be perfect! I’m kidding, but the more clean look is definitely my strong suit.

The base here is textured rich razzleberry, layered with a piece of Chocolate Chip DSP in the striped pattern.

As for the main image, I took a piece of Pale Plum card stock and put it through the Crimper a few times, both the long way and then again the opposite way. This produced a quilted look and really softened up the paper.

Next, I stamped the flower from Embrace Life in white craft ink 3 times, following with White Embossing Powder and heat gun. To color in the flowers, I used Pale Plum ink and Aquapainter just to makethem stand out a little more. In the center of each flower, I added a bit of Dazzling Diamonds.

Before adhering the pale plum layer, I tore the edge and curled it up a bit with my Bone Folder. Then, I adhered it to the Chocolate Chip DSP and using the Cropadile, added 2 Basic 5/16″ Brads in brown. That was then attached to the card base using SNAIL adhesive.

Finally, I stamped the “fabulous friend” from Oval All in Pale Plum ink on Whisper White card stock, punched it out with the Large Oval Punch and layered it with a chocolate chip Scallop Oval Punch. In the center of the pale plum flower, I also added more Dazzling Diamonds and attached the whole thing to the card front with dimensionals.
