Have A Beary Sweet Birthday featuring Stamp Anniething

Card features Build A Caring Bear
Limited Edition Set by Stamp Anniething

The art of gift-giving isn’t just about what’s inside the box. Adding a personal touch to your greeting card can make all the difference, especially when it’s for someone very special. That’s why I’m excited to share with you this really cute new set from Stamp Anniething that can be customized for any occasion and recipient.

Image is DISTORTED on purpose to prevent theft

I created a birthday card using the Build A Caring Bear set, as well as patterned paper from the SUMMER TROPICS pack as a background. So, let’s dive in and see how to make this versatile square card.

The first thing you’ll need is a 5 1/4 in square card base. This size will provide enough space to showcase your creativity while still being efficient enough to mail. Next, you’re going to create your characters using the Build A Caring Bear set. The great thing about this set is that you can mix and match the different elements like faces, arms and belly tag to create your unique bear. I decided to go with a Happy Cupcake Bear because I wanted to create a festive and colorful birthday card.

Once I BUILT my bear, I started creating a fun birthday scene. To do this, I downloaded a free digital image that coordinated with the image on my bear’s belly. It’s easy to do and it provides a great way to add a personal touch to your card. I went with a cupcake!

Free Digital Image – unknown source, so sorry

I wanted to create texture on the card, so I used patterned paper from the SUMMER TROPICS pack to make the background. The bright colors and versatile patterns are perfect for a celebration and it compliments the bear image well. I cut a total of four (4) two-and-a-quarter inch squares and a 2 1/2 inch square in white and a 2 3/4 inch square in black to frame and then place in center on the diagonal using double-sided foam tape. I had a small square scrap I added from the Pets Grab & Go Box (no longer available), that I added to the center of the square.

6×6 paper pack – 24 pages

Finally, I added a sentiment to the top right of the card, wishing the recipient a BEARY sweet birthday. It’s simple, but heartfelt, and it ties everything together nicely. Added some Enamel Dots from Stamp Anniething to repeat the pops of color in a triangular pattern, to draw your rye from the sentiment to the cherry on the cupcake and back to the sentiment again.

Build A Caring Bear Birthday Card

In conclusion, with little effort, anyone can make a sweet, personalized birthday card using the Build A Caring Bear set and Summer Tropics patterned paper. You can change the occasion, color scheme or even switch out the face, belly badge and arm positions to create a unique design tailored to whomever you’re giving it to. It’s a thoughtful gesture that shows you care, and the recipient will surely appreciate the time and effort put into it. Happy creating!

Scrappy Boy Stamps April Release: Pretty Little Things

I am so excited to be a new Design Team Member for Scrappy Boy Stamps, a new and very whimsical line by my friend Sean Covert. The newest release from April 2021 is entitled, ” Pretty Little Things.” This stamp set gets its inspiration from the ballet, The Nutcracker Suite. While this ballet may be typically associated with more of a Christmas Theme, the different elements Sean has included in his set lend themselves to a variety of different occasions.

I chose to use the ballerina and some of the smaller toy images in this set to create this little girl’s bedroom dresser scene for a birthday card. I also utilized one of the background stamps from Keep it Simple’s Hello Adventure Bundle, the 4×6 woodgrain background stamp, which Sean presented in the fall on the Stamp and Scrapbook Expo channel.

To make this modified slimline card, I stamped the ballerina, music box, teddy bear, rocking horse and train on Hammermill 100 lb. cover cardstock with Ink on 3 fadeout ink and used Copic markers to do some no-line coloring. In the future, I am going to make sure I keep track of all the colors I use and will include them in future posts; however, you can use any combination of colors that suits your fancy. This set is amazing and I can’t wait to see everyone’s creations.

The dresser is a simple 3×3 inch square that I cut out of kraft-colored cardstock and stamped with the woodgrain background stamp from Keep it Simple. I then cut two smaller rectangles to form the drawers and popped them up with dimensional foam tape after ink blending the edges to give extra dimension. I then used some of my enamel dots in a coordinating color to serve as “knobs” on the drawers. To make the bottom of the dresser look a little fancy and give the furniture a nice set of legs, I used a label punch that I centered in the middle and cropped out some of the cardstock forming the bottom of the dresser.

To make the mirror above the dresser, I used an oval die and scallop oval die from my stash. The oval was cut out of mirror card and the scallop oval was out of coordinating cardstock to tie everything together. If you don’t have oval dies, you can simply cut out a rectangle, too. Use what you have and get creative.

For the sentiment, I used another sentiment strip banner die from my stash after embossing using Versafine pigment ink and clear embossing powder for a finished look. With smaller sentiments, I love the clarity that Versafine ink provides.

Thank you for stopping by and don’t forget to get crafty!!!
